Sushi and Celebration!

Just a random food post.

Two days ago, me and my family went to Sumo Sushi and Bento, a Japanese restaurant located in Dubai Media City, to have our dinner after Iftar. At first, I didn't really intend to post it here even though I had a bunch of photos taken while we were eating. But somehow tonight, I suddenly felt the urge of blogging. And besides, I haven't published anything since the 30 Day Challenge so I, surprisingly, missed the feeling of typing and babbling here in my site, haha.

Actually, this family dinner was held for us to celebrate. Our IGCSE exam results came out and I couldn't contain my happiness seeing I got gratifying grades. With all the stressful days and sleepless nights I had before while preparing for the test, I can say that my hard work definitely paid off.

Back to the food. This is probably my third or fourth time eating in this restaurant. I had chicken gyoza for appetizer, and beef teriyaki bento as my main course and had a platter of california maki. The gyoza was a bit bland, on the other hand, the teriyaki bento was really great-- the beef was tender and the flavour is strong, just how I like it. 

These are my opinions, I'm not doing a review or anything because I don't think I'm fit for it yet. Pardon I am not a 'pro' nor an exquisite gourmet blogger. However, I feel that I should try posting about the places I go to-- why? well, I just love going out, eating here and there. To keep it simple, like a journal to keep track of places where I've been to. But hey, it's my blog; I post what I want, haha.

Day 30: A Picture Of You From Last Year And Now. How much have you changed?

Picture of me taken from last year, 30th July 2011

Picture of me taken today, 30th August 2012

Hope everyone does not mind seeing my face again and again.

I sure am lucky to find a photo of me that was taken exactly a year ago. It was just a picture I took before going to a YFC meeting which I never had guts to upload to any site except this blog since it is essential for this post. On the other hand, today's snapshot was taken few hours ago when we had a family dinner at a fine restaurant located inside a hotel (where my mom is currently working at).

As for the question-- how much have I changed? I personally think not much. Other than having a fringe now, I don't really see a drastic change. At a glance, you might think my cheeks got chubbier, but it's only because of the angle. My dark circles and laugh lines aren't that apparent on the recent photo but again, I think it's only because of the quality of the photo, haha. However, my skin condition has improved. You might not be able to see it but I actually have more faint acne scars last year than now. Touch wood that it would get more and more better. And that's pretty much everything that I could notice, looks like I haven't much changed; I have no clue though whether that's a good thing or a bad thing. Hope it's not the latter but improving oneself for the better is not so bad either, is it?

Now, this is the final day challenge, right? I am feeling glad yet somewhat wistful at the same time. Honestly speaking, I am well pleased that I completed the challenge, because to tell you, I initially thought it was undemanding to post everyday for a whole month without fail but it's actually not. I had a lot of posts that wasn't published on time. However, it's really fun; I reminisced my childhood days, talked about my preferences and even disclosed what's inside my bag. And even though I admit that I felt that my blog was getting out of hand and messy, I still don't regret doing it. Not at all, because it was a really great experience.

I wish everyone a blessed August ahead. :)

Day 29: Your Favorite Song

I will bring You more than a song.

Instead of posting a pop song, I decided to present my favourite worship song of all time. The Heart of Worship is one the worship songs that first heard and I loved it even more when we had to play it for Music Ministry (I was in charged of the keyboard) in our YFC  National Conference last year. Now, I'll stop babbling here and I hope that you'll spare five minutes of your time to listen to the video above. May God be praised. :)

"But I will sing your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and refuge in the day of my distress." - Psalm 59:16
