A Little Time Off

It is very rare that we both get to have afternoon dates. I can count on one hand the number of times we end early enough to have a late lunch outside together.

Yes, contrary to what some people may think, we do not have a half a day of work. That is soooooooooo old school!

Anyway, we managed to have one during that last lap of Mid year exam marking.

We didn't really know where to go so we just drove around for a while and eventually ended at up at The Royals Cafe along Siglap Road.

We have been here once. Besides their already famous cakes, The Royals Cafe is also known for their Mee Siam . I had that for my first visit so I thought I wanted to try something else from the menu.

In the end I decided to go for some chicken meatballs. The fish and chips did not look too appetising on the menu and I did not want mee siam.

It was not bad actually. The home made sauce was tangy and a little sweet at the same time. Maybe not as great as the meatballs at Fika Cafe (ok , drooling at the thought of that!) but enough to satisfy me then.

There isn't much to rave about this place... I guess they should really just stick to what they are good at - cakes! Thank goodness for the great company.

You know, times like this (rare dates with the other half) often make me reflect on life and count my blessings.

As humans, we are never satisfied. There is always something that we wish to have or yearn for. We tend to complain about every single thing; packed restaurants, slow transportation, busy working life and the list really just goes on. We forget about those less fortunate than us and how we are so so blessed to be living here and enjoying the comfortable lives as compared to others. 

Life has not been easy for the two of us; a little more challenging the past couple of months. However, I am really thankful that Allah has blessed me with someone who does not only understand my woes, but to actually go through my hardest obstacles with me - never letting me down , never leaving me unprotected, always, always ,always there for me and showering me with so much love. 

My husband.

I pray to God to always keep him blessed and healthy . Just keep him happy here and  after we part the world.

As for now, I also hope God answers that tiny little prayer of ours :)

I love you, husband.
