Best Being Single vs Best Being Parent

As I was scrolling my FB timeline to find something interesting to read, (I have very less interest to read on other people’s personal updates, hence sorry to say that I have unfollowed many of my FB friends’ timeline post), “thanks” to the latest FB ios app feature, that somehow let you see the latest comment of a post, and I came across this little comment that went ~ “Best kan jadi mummy and daddy.. bla bla bla…”

That darker side of me, got me wondering, as I am single, being single ni, tak best ke? Untuk couples yang belum ada rezeki nak dapat anak lagi tu, tak best ke? Siapa yang bagi and tentukan criteria-criteria best, or tak best-nya tahap hidup seseorang tu?

Then, it got me thinking a little bit more. Since I am single, for sure lah I would bagi point betapa bestnya jadi single. Contohnya, I can travel around the world more and freely as I have less commitment and responsibility.

And untuk parents pulak would do the same ~ give out point-point yang best after married and have kids. Tu belum termasuk hujah-hujah tentang life and iman kita ni still incomplete selagi kita belum berkahwin bla bla bla…

But pernah terfikir tak, layakkah kita nak decide which one yang paling best? Since bukannya kita dapat experience and live both situations and condition at the exact same time!

So I sincerely think, untuk both situation, or any other situation pun, it’s all about being thankful with what you have, live it, and be happy while living it!

Please don’t easily judge or look down on others just because “you think you are living a better life”. Cause all of us are living a complete different lives! Cheers!

Summary of the Day

First Visit to Tous les Jours

After seeing many of my friends went to this place, I wonder what is the fuss is all about. And since I’m a bread and coffee lover (or should I say cozy-kind-of-cafe lover), I really feel like going too (pengaruh rakan se-sns?)

And after reading some blogs (wanting to know where is the nearest outlet I can find), then I got to know this cafe is origionally from South Korea. Then it hits me “Ohhhhh no wonderrrr” lol

So far I know there are 2 outlets in KL – Bangsar and Bukit Bintang :)

Managed to go there with my friend today~

Had TJ breakfast meal for my dinner, lol

Together with my all-time-fav drink ~> Iced Cafe Latte!

This cafe certainly brought back the cozy n nice feeling like when I was in cafes in Korea~ if only an outlet is available somewhere nearer my place, I’m sure you can see me hang out there quite often!!

This Isn’t Goodbye. I Hope.

Yesterday was my final Korean language class… after almost 3 years of attending it, if I am not wrong, since November 2010! Our beloved Ms Kim won’t be staying in Malaysia anymore (due to some inevitable reasons), and I guess the language centre couldn’t find any better teacher that can teach well for higher level of Korean language class.. that we have come to this :(

I am surely going to miss her, my classmates and all the lessons I attended almost every week! Ms Kim is one of the best language teacher I have ever met in my entire life! Seriously. She is so kind, cute and a very sweet person too~ I am so going to miss her teasings, her stories and many of her motivational advises :’)

Learning by yourself and having a native speaking teacher to teach you the language is a wayyy different feelings you know (yes, cause I tried!). It’s better and personally I think it’s important for you to understand the culture too while learning a foreign language. Saw when I highlighted the “feeling” word in previous sentence…? That’s also another reason why depending too much on Google Translator sucks big time. Cause some sentences, can only be expressed and translated if you know the feeling and reasons behind, of why it is being said (hopefully my sentences made a little sense!)

….And I can’t help wondering now, of how and where I can implement and keep practising all the things I have learned :/ It sure will get way rustier than it is now, if I don’t get to use and practise it more!

My Home-made Ddeokbokki

I tried making one about 2 weeks ago, it wasn’t so bad actually. Except that I didn’t have much additional ingredients other than the rice cakes, fish cakes and spring onions :p

– 2 x fish cakes
– 5 x fish balls
– 1 x tofu
– 1 x hard boiled egg
– spring onions
– cabbage, kai choy (or carrot, or any veggies you like~)
