1. Birthday dinner at Cabbages and Condoms. A friend put up with my fondness for dining out and exploring restaurants. C & C supports social development programs of the PDA, an organization that complements the Thai government's effort to promote family planning.
2. Cafe de Tu. We took the sky train to get to a posh mall for dessert. There's a lovely ambience for a slice of chocolate banana cake and a long glass of iced lemon tea. It was sheer relaxation verbalizing ephemeral wishes. From the high ceiling pretty lamps cast off a warm, soft glow making the place conducive for twilight dreams.
3. Work over lunch at Fuji. Now comes a hard, raw bit. I had to carry work to one lunch but it helped that I like Japanese cuisine and cracked 80% of the job right there on the table. Thanks to the Giver of blessings: the untouched 20% spared me indigestion issues.
4."Everything smells so fresh after a storm." It's been raining on my nook. I've been musing over these words from one of my favorite films, Ladies in Lavender, starred in by two of my favorite actresses, Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.
5. Mommy Moments. This is a brief account of some of my fave moments with CJ, integrated as my fifth Friday fave and entry for today's Mommy Moments theme, Wacky right below -
As I lamented CJ's stance against being photographed, I realized that my constant attempts to click away anyway have gained a few wacky results.
On board a yacht in Hong Kong, a weary single mom was hoping to experience a lovely night watching the famous Symphony of Lights while cruising Victoria Bay. Soft music, butter cake, mint tea, silver strappy heels, it was her moment.
Fat chance. A little brat decided to grab her crowning glory.
That's how my tiara ended up on his head...
It made me determined to snap more shots. But at The Peak the next day, CJ's stance didn't waver. Well, they say if you can't beat them, join them. I did and with Auntie Chette's perfect timing, we got this moment together.
