Too much talk

I’m lost in a world heaped with thousand of feeds.
I drown in them.
Regurgitate tried surface.
Lost with endless options that try to shovel and suffocate.

I need air, need to find my balance.
So I dive into my books.
Take comfort words, woods.
I need to walk barefooted and get drenched in life.
Let me breathe again
Get lost in the moment of life once again.

Have you Shabued?

20140726-215805-79085865.jpg

I have far too many pictures to upload so I’ll just start with my recent dinner at “Shabu Shi”

It’s located at changi city point. A favorite Haunt of ours.

It serves 2 kinds of soup in a pot and a variety of Japanese vegetables and local ones. I particularly enjoyed the fish paste and meat with lotus paste :)

There are 3 types of meat to choose from chicken, pork and beef. You can mix your own sauce to dip the meat or dishes in.

We used the sukiyaki broth and tonkatsu bone broth (pork bone broth)

The taste was very authentic :)
