at least dinner was good..

while i was cutting up the chicken for my paneer curry, i found myself slicing out all the chicken fat before sending it into the hot evoo. for a second, i remembered the days when i used to stand on the opposite end of the kitchen counter watching my mom cook. i used to ask her why she'd cut out all the fat on her chicken when clearly, that was the bEst part that made everything taste so delicioso.

that was before i spent 4 years in college and a year in grad school learning that limiting excess fat intake is actually a good thing. my mom knew that.. with her extraterrestrial mom-sense - knowing the things that are good for me even when i was still fighting over the chicken butt with my siblings.

as i slid my diced and de-fatted chicken into the pan, the phone conversation i had with my parents over the weekend still stuck in my mind. there are very few things that make me mad. and one of them includes talk of a boy and a girl and like.. stuff. apparently this is when my 牛脾氣 comes out = p boo.

but maybe they're right. just like slicing out the chicken fat, mom knows best?

listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the lord's purpose that prevails.

summer movies

wow. i'm thinking i kinda want to go see twilight now >_< i mean.. what's better than true love, chivalry, and a manly man?? hahaa just kidding.. sort of. i don't condone the obsession that's grown from this saga, but like they say, it's obvious why its become so overwhelmingly popular: mr. pale-face is a protector, always there, has only her best interests in mind..

i know someone greater who does that in real life.

next up, TOY STORY 3!!!! wow. sO good. the best part in the movie was when andy introduces the gang to bonnie in the end. basically the tear duct dams malfunctioned when he pulls out woody. no movie spoilers here ..but such a perfect ending to the toy story trilogy. ^_^

who wants to watch the karate kid next tuesday??

ta daaa!

ever want to do something so bad.. like everything within you and everything around you was set up to do just that? so much so that you're like busting out of your pants because you're so excited?

..but then, at the same time, everything about it freaks you out? so much so that you think maybe you'd be better off just staying home and reading a good book. i mean, who else is gonna feed the bunny??

and so when we pray, we pray for courage that comes from above, boldness that comes from the one who conquered the grave, and humility because his mercy covers all sin.
