Jamie Oliver 15 minutes n 30 minutes meal is very popular here. Actually, it gives us a lot of good ideas.
No matter how much you love to cook, need to do it 5 days a week lunch and dinner plus working full time, it really feel headache.
Watching his show few times, i learnt this one -homemade garlic bread - simple and easy.
I just need to cut few lines horizontailly n vertically on the top of bread, chop some garlic put in inside and few drops of oliver oil, salt. Then put in oven 180 to 200 degree until golden brown.
Smoked salmon salad - salad veg from garden + smoked salmon from supermarket + olive oil
Perfect summer meal

This is what i learnt this year, seamless crochet start from neckline.
why it is so special -- because all in one pieces, no need to sew the side edge, save some time.
I still haven't work it out how to knit from neckline. My mum and auntie said it is very easy, but they are so far away from me. So it may take me another year to learn that.
Here it is, I loved both styles. The orane /red one is cotton material, suitable for spring and autumn.

This parttern is from Vogue crochet magazine. I have followed this magaize making couple items already, love it.
This is from Yoko Hatta - V-neck lace top, material is Stella bamboo.
It is a magic top, no matter me or my mum do fit perfectly.
As my mum knit so many tops and jumpers to me, this is my turn now.
I have brought it back to home and she can wear it in next summer.

Honestly, how many of us could remember what to do during that particular time - mind went blank.
This week, I pick up this "Treasure Yourself" by Miranda Kerr.
Do you think I am her fans.. NO... but I heard a lot about her and now is new spring/summar fashion seasons, she is in all DJ advertisment. By accident, I found that book.
It is very good to see someone working in a very complicated industry and still know how to take care herself and understand "Dignity".
Life has a lot of up and down, every turn has a lesson to learn. It is an universal message from the date we born - do you remember how we learn walking, we fall again and again and then able to walk and then run.
From her experience " I have the choice to be greatful for the time I had with him, instead of dwelling on losing him, and it made me realise that life is so fragile that we need to really live and appreciate every moment. It also taught me that no one can heal your pain but yourself and through the power of gratitude and acceptance I was able to move forward"
Of course, no one want to lose our loved one. However, when the time come, we do have to say goodbye without a choice.
It is our destiny to meet each other, know each other and have a lot of good time. It will always live in our hearts and memories.
