There was an article from CNN Travel this week '10 things Taiwan does better than anywhere else'. Nearly half of the topics were food related. I could not have agreed more. The Taiwanese food scene has pizzazz or 'bozazz' :) After the jet lag torment, I finally bounced back higher and greater making these delicious sweet yam gnocchi in ginger soup - a Taiwanese favorite for combating cold weather.

2013 is coming to an end with the final farewell to my beloved grandma. In the midst of consuming grief, I am reminded by my favorite character from Harry Potter, Professor Dumbledore:
“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
向來欣賞格友V文筆影像, 讀她網誌Measurement會心微笑, 緣起緣滅自有定數, 我也是個不執著的人. 有心有緣, 人生往往何處不相逢.
My first christmas present this year, an Alex And Ani phoenix wrap. Thank you, Dr. C!
十月底在香港和大學同學A相聚, A剛卸任某知名品牌設計總監, 品牌復古東方揉合現代歐風洋溢奢華. 老朋友高䠷白皙如昔, 歲月未曾留下痕跡, 倒是舉手投足多了幾分所屬名牌的精緻嫵媚. A侃侃而談多年高低起伏, 爽朗一如學生時代的她, 然風光亮麗的背後我聽得出她吃了不少苦頭, 聊至夜深我們舉杯互祝下個十年平安如意！
Light does come from many sources: loving family, heart warming friendship, wonderful art and great books.

多年來赴印度出差無數次, 卻總沒能安排一趟朝聖之旅, 奔往那蒙兀兒暴君為亡妻誓愛, 耗費二十二年人心國庫, 以雪白雲石建成的憂傷傳奇, 這是'相思欲寄無從寄, 畫個圈兒替'的壯烈版.
外婆年輕時是府城出名的美人, 當軍官的外公驚艷她的美麗停馬暫借問, 成就ㄧ輩子快樂良緣, 外公二十年前去世. 親愛的外公外婆, 相隔了漫長的二十年, 盼望您倆在天堂幸福團圓.
此趟出差啓航心情沈重, 我去年主導的企劃案公佈設計時佳評如潮, 今年本該豐收, 卻因合作廠商品管失誤, 造成公司莫大損失, 也是我重回職塲首度挫敗, 這次巡迴亞洲其中ㄧ項重要任務為協商賠款條約.

Reflective very, see I. The pent up forces of Halloween have turned my little boy Darth and me, Master Yoda :) Being a cookie(the action counterpart of foodie), I must admit the Malle W Kitchen Trousseau shot me right through with a bolt of blue. Yes, I would choose Shun knifes and Sarpaneva cast iron casserole over lingerie and silk slippers anytime!
這ㄧ箱四十三件的Malle W Kitchen Trousseau正中我心, 幻想自己穿著牛皮圍裙, 揮舞旬刀懷抱Sarpaneva鐵鍋便醺然. 此套廚具的統籌者據說靈感來自女兒大了離家成就這另類妝奩…
