sun peeks through violet sky
we look at it and wonder why
it looks so peaceful we can fly
against the velvety sky stood in shadow the skyline
indigo clouds cover up the first stars that might shine
the chill of twilight and a promise of a night divine
trees on the sides that go bold
faded highway that lay cold
all was dark as we strolled
we’re on our way home
world so monochrome
and we say shalom
till we meet again
it was nice to ken
time to say amen*

Follow your inner moonlight
Things you do is such an excite
Don’t hide the madness
That’s you and what’s the fuss?
You are the soul of the universe
Take a hint from the verse
Fresh and lingering as the new day
The colourful chameleon that’s not grey
It tends to change its colour as it sees fit
It’s stress-free just like changing an outfit
Fine range of drinks for urbane palates
Good quality wine like gold with 24 carats
Spend some time in the sun till toasty brown
Life is good, go and have some fun uptown
Mix with the cool people of different sex
You can assess them, don’t even need specs
The subtleness of pastel colour suits you
You charm them, men are always in a queue
Reading classic fantasy yields rich imagination
Create your own wonderland and have some fun

Yet, love, mere love, is beautiful indeed
And worthy of acceptation. Fire is bright,
Let temple burn, or flax; an equal light
Leaps in the flame from cedar-plank or weed:
And love is fire. And when I say at need
I love thee . . . mark! . . . I love thee—in thy sight
I stand transfigured, glorified aright,
With conscience of the new rays that proceed
Out of my face toward thine. There’s nothing low
In love, when love the lowest: meanest creatures
Who love God, God accepts while loving so.
And what I feel, across the inferior features
Of what I am, doth flash itself, and show
How that great work of Love enhances Nature’s.

Hi everyone. Last weekend, we celebrated our Pearl Anniversary and we had fine dining at Das Kranzbach. We dined for two nights and here are some of the luxuries in life that we’ve tasted. They were all exquisite!
These were our starters.
Our main meals.

There’s a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire–
He likes it ’cause it’s cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He’s nibbling the noodles,
He’s munching the rice,
He’s slurping the soda,
He’s licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he’s in there–
That Polary Bear
In our Fridgitydaire.

On our last evening before flying back home, my brother cooked this delicious paella and we really enjoyed eating it. From the looks of it, he put seafood like mussels and prawns with chorizo, peas, paella rice,tomatoes and red peppers.
