"The world is like a mirror; frown at it, and it frowns at you. Smile, and it smiles, too..." - Herbert Samuel
Tonight, we celebrated the blessing of good health and wealth with our wonderful family.
By popular demand, we had our family dinner at Victoria Station for an early celebration for our 31st Anniversary and Iwan’s birthday which both fall on 1st September. We had not called for a reservation but were quite confident that there will be seats available. We reached the restaurant a little late and way after iftar hour. And we were not overly hungry for we already had our ‘berbuka puasa’ with some kueh mueh at home.
Each of us ordered our favourite dish and by the time we finished we were full to the brim and some of us were contemplating not to bersahur later on.
As for me, I have always berbuka puasa with simple light meals. So tonight, my ravenous indulgence in chillie spare ribs and banana split for dessert has resulted in me lying wide awake in the wee hour of the night while the whole world is past asleep.
I should have known better not to over eat. There are a few things that I should have learned from adversity.
