Murphy’s Kitchen/Rapha’s Back

I cooked two pasta dishes today and both of them are a BIG FAIL. I don’t know… They just tasted blah. No amount of spice  can save the big mess that I’ve created. Ironic since I was really excited to prepare them as a surprise for Christian. 😦

Actually, I planned on cooking just one dish: a simple spaghetti. But I wasn’t satisfied with the taste so I set it aside in the far corner of the fridge and resorted to cooking the usual spicy tuna pasta. The one that he loves. But even that I couldn’t get right!

Oh well. There are just those days that Murphy’s Law is strongest. This is one of those.

On a lighter note, I filed a leave from work to free up my night. One of my good friends, Rapha, is back from Singapore so we’re gonna meet up later for dinner and coffee. There’s a lot of catching up to do so I’m really excited.

Yes, this early kitchen episode is such a bummer but I’ll feel better later once I’m surrounded with friends.

Sometimes the little things in life are the greatest. Like cooking up a decent meal for yourself (after months of kitchen dormancy) and enjoying a hot cup of tea while hanging out in your veranda on a rainy, windy day.

I enjoy the company of my friends and my relationship with Christian, but I always make it a point that I allot a small time where I can be alone and do the things that I love. Having “me time” helps me to be more secure and in touch with my inner self.  🙂
