She had a Secret Rendezvous…

11 Nov

Sometimes I wish I could travel back in time. Have a secret rendezvous on a trip without anyone knowing it. Wearing my favourite strand of pearls, I check my look in the mirror a hundred times before running to the appointment, just to make sure I look perfect.

With tender steps and soft movements, I walk in great anticipation to the meeting. I started imagine the warmth, the smell and the lovely glass of champagne waiting in a tall crystal champagne flute, bubbling…

My heart thumps harder as I move from one floor to another. My hands turn cold and I think I am shaking a little. Both inside out…

In my purse, there is this little key that opens up the beautiful white wooden crafted door. The sun shines in through the glass window, bringing in light and warm. Almost there… my heart is filled with joys and fears.

Clocks forgot times, and that moment froze, in eternity. It left me in that particular time and space, with myself… walking one step closer to the secret rendezvous.

The charming chandelier is shining vaguely. The corridor is full of sweet fruity smell that reminds me of all the excitements and intensity of the pleasure.

And who knows, there might be a lovely expensive gift waiting for me in the room, glittering in sparkling glows… With a love poem attached to it.

Today, I am an elegant and dreamy woman, going to a special secret date in this charming old European hotel. There is no need to act, I feel exactly like that woman. Dreamy is the word to describe myself in these days.

Romantic love is an illusion…

I wish I never discover the truth… and indulge in the sweet emotions of love forever…

Thank you so much for reading.

Have a lovely day!

Dress Up For Your Husband?

13 Jun

Ever seen a pregnant flapper girl?

Last weekend Kelvin took me out for a movie that I have been waiting for:

The Great Gatsby

5eae639e-753d-403b-ac64-05b2dd66ee1c

I was so happy and had been counting down since the start of the week and planning what to wear to the movie date. On the morning of the date, I was telling him how much I look forward to spend some romantic time with him. It may sound funny to many, but I still feel excited whenever Kelvin is taking me out for a date, just like how we first fell in love. I will dress up a little, spray on my favourite perfume and put on jewellery that was given by him. I guess it’s my way of showing appreciation to his love. Even though we have been married for almost 2 years and I am 37 weeks pregnant now, I still find it thrilling to look good for him.

This is probably the best I can do with my growing body.

Great Gatsby

I do believe that physical attraction is important to keep the relationship alive. Very often married couples become comfortable with each other and do not care about their physical appearance anymore. I always remind myself that Kelvin did not sign up for this. He deserves the very best of me.

Attitude is as important as the attire. I would smile and speak positively about him, telling him how much I appreciate him planning the date and all that he’s done to cheer me up during the pregnancy.

Although it’s just a movie date, but it really meant a lot to me…

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever” ~ Nicholas Sparks

The Other Side Of The Bed

Hello Mickey! Where’s Your Better Half?

29 Apr

Today: Put a bow on your head ❤

IMG_0481

While having afternoon tea in one of our favourite cafe today, I read this sentence in the newspaper: “When I was courting my better half…”

Then I wonder, why do you call your other half your “better half”?

IMG_0483

The allusion then was to a friend so dear that he/she was more than half a person’s being. It often refers to your spouse, whom you think is more superior in terms of quality, comparing to yourself.IMG_0480

I kinda like this expression. It makes us humble ourselves and embrace the fact that we are not perfect and we need “another” half to complete us, in fact, a “better half” to fill in the deficiency and make us perfect. It helps us to honor our partner in life and appreciate what he/she does to make us complete, very often out of admiration and love.

Have a great day everyone!

OMG! It’s Been 9 Years!

Eryn Anniversary

Today marks the 9th year Kelvin and I have been together. Loving as he always is, he planned special dinner to celebrate this special day. We knocked off at 6:30pm and he brought me to this cozy western restaurant that serves Mediterranean food like French, Spanish, Italian, Moroccan and Greek dishes located at Jalan Serampang. I was so excited that I started planning what to wear the day before :)

I must say I am quite impressed by the deco and the overall atmosphere in this restaurant.

The interior of the restaurant is gorgeous with an open space section where sunlight shines in from the rooftop. We were being placed at a corner with soft cushions next to a giant mirror which makes the spaces look bigger and brighter.Sweetwater 2

The starter of French onion soup ($16.00) was nicely cooked with caramelized onions. The crispy cheese at the side adds credit to the overall taste of the simple soup. A bit salty I must say, but 2 of us finished it in no time :)

French Onion Soup

I am a big fan of mushroom, which goes deliciously with chicken especially in creamy sauce :) We sprinkled this pollo champinones ($14.00) with chilli flakes and eat it up with the warm crispy bread.

Pollo Champinones

For main course, Kelvin ordered his favourite carbonara ($46.00). It is very disappointing as the sauce lack richness in flavour and tasted a bit bland and off flavour with the addition of broccoli. For this price, we actually expecting something rich and divine in taste. But at $46.00, this dish felt like a rip-off.

Carbonara

I ordered myself Morrocan chicken with rice ($55.00). There were 4 decent sized chicken breast pieces heavily spiced in tumeric, paprika and ginger and other spices that I couldn’t tell just from eating, lying on top of saucy rice. It smelled so good even from across the table :) A very unique taste, particularly if you are into spices.

Moroccan Chicken

The overall dining experience is awesome, but the waiting time is a bit too long. We waited for an average of 15 minutes between bread – soup – entree – main courses. We were fine with it since it is our anniversary celebration, we had so much to talk about in between the dishes. But if you are in a hurry or very hungry, you might want to ask the chef to serve everything together (I reckon it would be faster!). Besides that, they do have a very impressive selection of wines and drinks, but since I am pregnant and would not want to take any alcohol and cold drinks, I saved Kelvin some money by just ordering water… T__T

Also, due to the long dining time and our small stomach, after finishing our main courses, we can find no space for the desserts anymore. However, according to the menu and chef’s recommendation, we deduce that the desserts here are definitely worth coming back for. Well, I’ll update you next time when we come back for dessert :)

Okay I know, I initially wanted to write about our anniversary celebration and I ended up writing a food review :) That’s because most of my friends has been asking me where I usually dine in JB and if there’s any good eatery around JB, so here’s for you who’s looking for a perfect dining place for your date night :) A bit pricey, but definitely worth it as long as you don’t order carbonara… hehe… Visit their website for reservation and more info: www.sweetwaterrestaurant.info

So…

Here’s about us… our 9th anniversary.

A few days ago, Taiwanese director Ang Lee won Oscar for the best director with the film “Life Of Pi”. And I just so happened to read about a short article that he wrote about how his wife supported him through his career’s down time. It’s called <A Never-Ending Dream>, it says about his wife believing in his dream even though she had to provide for the family while he struggled and torn between dreams and reality. Click here for the full version in both Chinese and English. After reading the article, I quickly made a prayer: God, please help me to be that woman, who can believe and support my husband’s dreams even in the worst time…

Kelvin And I

From one of a framed pictures that we took back then.

I have known him for 9 years. And when I asked him during the dinner, what are the changes you see in yourself in this 9 years. He replied, I am a happier man now, with a big smile on his face.

I always believe that you can never change a man. You can only help to bring out his best. I am not so sure about him, but to me, he has been there to shape me into a prettier, smarter and confident woman. When I looked at his small eyes while scooping my rice out from the hot plate, I thought it is such a blessing that we have each other for the past 9 years. He is always caring and supportive. I feel both safe and free in his love. He believes in every of my dreams, big or small, sometimes even dreams that I find it ridiculous (like flying to Indonesia just to have crabs and having dolphins as pets…etc). He never laughed at my dumbness and never look down on me nor my dreams. He makes me more courageous in realizing my life and to dream bigger.

Baby Belly

And now, we have a baby on the way… It would be a whole new journey filled with unknowns… Deep inside, I know I need more patience and humility in the future to be a good wife and a good mother at the same time. Fear? yes. But I know God has a plan for us and I’m so thankful that Kelvin is always there when I am scared.

 To mark our anniversary, he gave me a set of lavish jewellery the night, Peacocks with stones in various colours which I love at the first sight although I really don’t know where I can wear this to… He named it “The Beginning of A Wonderful Journey”.

The Start of Another Wonderful Journey with You

They say an anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.

That’s exactly how I feel now, and may there be many many many more to come :)

Happy Anniversary darling!!
