That Rainbow, Somewhere.

I never once looked at a rainbow and thought of the prism theory. The scientific explanations do not do justice to the brief appearance of a rainbow. To me, it's there for a reason, it's there for us to see and to experience the short stance of happiness it brings.

Rainbow influences everyone in a beautiful way. It calms the crying soul, it remedies the blemished aura, it nurses the wounded heart and it balms the bruises of any falls. It's those seven colours we seek after the rain, be it in our heart or outside our window pane. It is also a present we wished we could bring and give to someone whose life is a little bit troubling.

I did a rainbow cake wrapped in a Van Gogh piece of artwork. It's a gift from a dear to her dearest. The colours of the rainbow present in the cake were supposed to ease his sorrows and I do so hope the taste would mend his broken heart too.

Thanks so much Natasha!

It's a far cry from the original work of Van Gogh. I was indeed crying when I did this! To achieve the same palette of colours was almost impossible with buttercream.

Another rainbow cake I did was for a one year old. At that age, everything is a rainbow :o)

Thanks so much Ita!

Rainbows are not difficult to find, it's that pot of gold that's been luring us away from the true beauty of the sky tapestry is! ;o)

U Want Anything?

Thanks so so much Emy!

He texted me the other day asking if I needed anything. I was at home preparing dinner and chasing the kids to take their baths after school. He was at Mydin's getting things he didn't tell me about. He likes to buy things right after he gets his salary. It is his way of celebrating his family, I can feel it sans so many words.

I texted back " thanks, saya dah masak dah. What I want, you can't give, so I shall not ask.;o)"

I knew he would call me back to decipher my message, and so I waited all ready with my answers.

"...What things that you said, you shall not ask from me?" he sounded bemused with my answer.

Impossible things, I said, like a tree house, a trip around the world, an island in my kitchen and my impossible list went on and on. I wasn't trying to be a spoilt one or the ungrateful one, I was just being silly for the sake of initiating a response from him other than the usual greetings and everyday predictable conversations.

There was an eclipse of thoughts in his silence and just before I wanted to say "gotcha! saya main2 je la" he breathed out "...if I can afford it, I would give the world to you, your tree house your trip around the world, anything,you know I would kan?" I know he knows that I know. And I said "...just come home already!"

But he got me better things. Better than the tree house, better than the trip around the world or any of those silly stuff I wished for. He came back with a tub of Walls double dutch ice-cream, which he carefully hid from the children's view, and a plastic bag of mangoes which I love. The mangoes we all shared after dinner, the ice-cream, we had to wait for the kids to hit the hay before we took the tub out and just spent some quality ice-cream time together, kekekeke.

As we were about to enjoy our ice-cream, him with the spoon and me with my index finger, just the way I take my nutella, I said to him, you know what sayang?


"...I am sooooo into this Groupon thing and they help little people like us enjoy cool things we know we would never consider of buying on any normal day. I think I have sent you a couple of emails regarding all the deals, some of them that I like very very much." hinting mode on.

"I'd buy you the tree house if they ever have discounts on it at Groupon!"

Set! I said affirmatively.
ermmmm.... If only he knew the things I have already bought or plan to buy via Groupon!

Thanks so so much Marissa!

Super Something

Thank you so so much Zurina!

You see, I haven't been feeling super lately. It's like I was sitting in the midst of something, when everything just seemed to pass me by. Just like the song, I was watching my dream only from a distance with little allowance of guilt. I spared some time and waited but nothing came out of it. Perhaps, I didn't know what I was waiting for. Perhaps, I missed it when I wasn't looking.

For right now, I feel the need to be a Super Something so I could go on feeling super in need. I need an agenda, a new wardrobe, and maybe a whole new world to save.

And whilst I am at it, better pack an extra cape and some disposable masks, just in case. ;o)

Up up and away!
