A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was an amazingly,practically perfect book in my opinion. I am so impressed. I wish I had this book for myself . I was completely lost into their world and loving the characters. I loved the sincerity of Ove and how his mind worked.The fact that good was always good and there was no excuses for wrong. He was like a secret, all of our secret. we know how awesome he is but no one else does except for the people who grows to love and know him. I loved this book and goodness the ending was well crafted and so not forced. IT just seemed like a natural ending to a good story. I didn’t feel like it should change, it just felt right.

To celebrate our 300 day celebration we chose yet another Asian restaurant called Rituals Sushi. We set our budget for the night and headed out, me giddy as usual. I had always wanted to taste sushi and was bubbling with excitement. The scene was set near the Marina, and everything was beautiful including my date.
My Dimpled Chin Chocolate,YUM.
Our appetizers might have been one my favorite meals.I enjoyed it so much that I forgot to take pics of it. We both chose Spring roll appetizers which we dipped in the most delicious sweet sauce. It’s rare to have a vegetarian option taste so good! I was craving more of that one dish when I woke up this morning.
I also chose a Miso soup which was common in anime and other things of that nature. Naturally I had to taste it and gosh was it good. At first I was surprised wondering what is this watery brown thing. The very first sip was like traveling to another continent in one bowl of soup. It was also my first time tasting the famous seaweed which I adore in my Korean Dramas. I also forgot to take a pic of it as I was too busy sipping away.
Devouring The Spring Rolls Vegetarian option
Finally came along our highlight dishes. Tevin my love chose a salmon roll which I enjoyed more than my choice which was a tuna roll. His was drizzled with the most delicious sauce ever and then i chose to try it with the side soy sauce. SIGH . I love when eating becomes more than just eating and instead you have an entire experience in your mouth.It was so good that I already hoped to go back to the restaurant sometime in the future.

via Daily Prompt: Plop
Plop may just be the word to describe my year thus far. The disappointment is real. We have 3 months remaining in the year to get “it”done. I started of well like many, yet after te 6 month mark things began to really just plop.I still have 3 months remaining if God allows.. I can still give it a go. I look forward to the time where the successful me can look back and wonder why I couldn’t attack my goals as much as I would have liked to. Nevertheless, it isn’t over till it’s over. 3 months remaining and a lot can happen within that time.Continue working toward those goals everyone and maybe, just maybe, I’ll see you at the finish line.
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Hebrews 12 NIV
I want to remember this. When someone tests me. When someone tries to turn me as ugly as they are.when someone tries to make everyone think I am weak. Peace is strength. Peace is my strength. When they are all blinded by their anger. I want to remember this.
