first meal

i started the year with my favourite food. pasta yeah! only this time i added a few more chilis than i usually do. so by mid way into our meal, my husband and i were sniffling with tears running down our cheeks and refilling our glasses with ice cold orange juice til there weren't any left. my mom-in-law came back with a new potted plant that's suppose to bring us prosperity and i dished her a plate of pasta with a warning rating which she said she was brave enough to try. hope you're having a memorable start to the year.

  1. very memorable. some drunk guy started ringing every door bell in the building we live in, at about 7 am. even after we disabled our door bell we could still hear the noise from upstairs, downstairs, and across the hall. I think it went on for about 20 min (looks like we're the only ones at home, and we simply couldn't get dressed enough to go downstairs to chase him away... :)

  2. a peaceful beginning for us- and we're heading out with the cameras today as the weather is unexpectedly warm! glad you rang in the new year with food and those you love, even if the former brought on a few tears!

  6. Hi Petra, that would definitely be memorable for me :) Hope the drunk guy is now sober! Kitchu, glad to heat that you had a peaceful start to the year too. Robin, Elizabelle and annalyn, if you're brave enough to try, just put 2-3 chili padis in your pasta and then have a good cry! Nice to meet fellow spicy eaters :)

  7. I used to, when i was in Singapore, we ate a lot of spicy food, their culture is so diverse as well as their food too. I still do eat spicy once in a while, I just don't want to hurt my tummy so much :)
