I'm in heaven





























I thought this was a rather strange title - no, I didn't supply it - until a friend pointed out it could have been extracted from an old pop song:

Pity the picture didn't come out too well in print.

Here's the haul for the rest of the day:



















The institutional yong tau fu stall in Madras Lane



















The out-of-this-world linguine carbonara I was salivating over a few hours later at Carmen's. Thanks for the tip, Samantha Fong!

All in all, a great day that kind of paid off for itself, although I DID haul myself out of bed at 7.30am and only got back home at nearly midnight after squeezing in 7 appointments in a single day.

Who says freelance shake legs only?

Thanks for the kind words, Keef. It isn't always sunshine and rainbows either. Many times, it's reminders like yours - that the little observations and life lessons I've picked up along the way might be of use to somebody else - that sustains my belief that I did the right thing taking that leap. Having a strong belief and support system has pulled me out of many tight spots :)
