Bob Marley Quote

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” — Bob Marley

Star Wars [Funny conversation between Luke and Darth Vader]

(Got this from my niece’s FB account. Not sure if she got is HERE. I think she did. Open the link since it’s funnier hehe)

Darth Vader: Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father.

Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!

Darth Vader: No… I am your father!

Luke: No, it’s not true! It’s impossible.

Darth Vader: Search your feelings… you know it to be true…

Luke: NO!

Darth Vader: Yes, it is true… and you know what else? You know That brass droid of yours?

Luke: Threepio?

Darth Vader: Yes… Threepio… I built him… when I was 7 years old…

Luke: No…

Darth Vader: Seven years old! And what have you done? Look at yourself, no hand, no job, and couldn’t even levitate your own ship out of the swamp…

Luke: I destroyed your precious Death Star!

Darth Vader: When you were 20! When I was 10, I single-handedly destroyed a Trade Federation Droid Control ship!

Luke: Well, it’s not my fault…

Darth Vader: Oh, here we go… “Poor me… my father never gave me what I wanted for my birthday… boo hoo, my daddy’s the Dark Lord of the Sith…waahhh wahhh!”

Luke: Shut up…

Darth Vader: You’re a slacker! By the time I was you’re age, I had exterminated the Jedi knights!

Luke: I used to race my T-16 through Beggar’s Canyon…

Darth Vader: Oh, for the love of the Emperor… 10 years old, winner of the Boonta Eve Open… Only human to ever fly a Pod Racer… right here baby!

Luke looks down the shaft. Takes a step towards it.

Darth Vader: I was wrong… You’re not my kid… I don’t know whose you are, but you sure ain’t mine…

Luke takes a step off the platform, hesitates, then plunges down the shaft.

Darth Vader looks after him.

Darth Vader: Get a haircut!

Hello MONDAY!!!

I don’t think I hate Mondays. I used to dislike it, but these days, it doesn’t really matter. There are even times when I get confused with the days of the week. I guess it boils down to different shifts per client plus working even outside of my shift…

This particular Monday, I started early since I had a scheduled meeting (via Skype). After the meeting, I decided to just cook. 🙂 I was going to cook last night but I ended up sleeping o_O.

I decided to make Creamy Mashed Potatoes. I got this recipe while I was Stumbling (seriously, if you don’t know Stumble Upon, please get to know the app/site). As usual, I didn’t (entirely) follow the recipe of  The Pioneer Woman. Made some changes mainly because of the availability of (some) the ingredients.

I truly think that the picture does not do justice to the actual taste. Or I’m just biased.

Ahhh… I love pepper…

But wait! There’s more! I’m Filipino. I love my meat. So aside from the Creamy Mashed Potatoes, I made Chili Con Carne. And yes, I also got the recipe when I was Stumbling and yes I made changes to the recipe. For the original recipe, check out My Glorious Food.

My version turned out to be extra hot! Instead of putting chili powder, I used chili flakes. And lots of it! My mouth was on fire! But still managed to eat a lot. *burp*

Again… Happy happy Monday!!!

Thinking about posting what I did different with the two recipes… Will add those later… Feeling lazy.
