I felt a "growing" wisdom tooth and was so sure that I needed to pull it out. Hence I made an appointment at the dentist and even announced to the entire world (ie. my boss and my students) that I was going to pull out my wisdom tooth.
We cancelled one class tomorrow - thinking that I wouldn´t be able to talk after my extraction.
Turns out that there was no wisdom tooth! What I thought was there was actually not there and had been taken out before!
Boy, I ended up going to the dentist, being worried and scared for nothing! Plus I had to wait another 30mins before the train came to go home.
Anyway, I am happy that I don´t have to go through the pain now! I still have 2 more wisdom teeth on the top of my mouth but I shall just pray that they will never come out for the rest of my life!
Moving on to something more lighthearted....
Its back to experimenting with food.... We recently tried Spanish dates covered with bacon slices. The most greasy stuff, but so super yummy esp. with green salad.
Asparagus with beef and black bean paste.
Asparagus season is here. For the first time, I decided to try cooking this vegetable. Its the yummiest thing ever! It´s crunchy, tasty and so full of vitamins and minerals and one can cook it either the Asian or the Western way.
The hub bought me flowers last Saturday. We had an argument (over some minor thing that escalated because both of us were so mega-exhausted from our long work week). He then said something about having to go somewhere for a while. When he came back, he gave me over 20 roses in a bouquet. I was so pleasantly surprised that all that pent-up frustration was gone in a second! Sometimes it really takes a small something to say what words cannot say! Thank God for giving him the idea to do that! And roses never go out of date! I´m happy to still receive flowers even after we´re married....no doubt its less frequent than it used to be, (since we´re no longer having any long-distance relationship) but that makes it even more special!
And flowers do brighten up everything! That´s what we had for a simple Saturday dinner when we decided to take things easy and just relax. We caught up on our housework, sleep, time together and even had time to go swimming and spend with the in-laws. I really enjoy not having any social appointments sometimes and just enjoying the simple life together. :)
