I write songs, I sing them... I play the piano and a little bit of the guitar.. I've released 5 albums of music, I love the scent of freshly fallen rain and the scent of lavender on bedsheets. I would drink tea all day long if the caffeine didn't keep me up at night. I hate driving in L.A traffic. I would love to one day catch the squirrel that steals the plums from my tree and make him a pet. I don't watch TV anymore. My 3 year old daughter is more entertaining than any TV show could ever be :)

Time slows in Seremban, Malaysia

We've spent the past few days after the completion
of the 'Beautiful Seed' concert, here at Kavin's
parent's house in Seremban, Malaysia.
It's been a good relaxing time...quite a
good change from the busy schedule we've had
for the past month or so.

In the quiet, slow-paced, rural-like atmosphere
where time seems to be tip-toeing along,
it feels like we can finally breathe.

We've eaten our fill of favourites like
the Liang Ji Noodle stall where we've downed
at least three servings of wanton char siew mee
and we've had a serving of the famous fish ball
noodles.

And this morning, we headed to the Ya Zhou Laksa
stall where Kavin and his parents had their favourite
laksa, whilst I had the Lo Shu Fen with a bit of
minced meat and a piece of chicken.

It's such a change from the busy, ever-changing
pace of Singapore. Here in Seremban, the same
food stalls that Kavin grew up with are still in the
same spot, now taken over by the sons or daughters
of the original owners.

The roads have remained mainly unchanged.
There is an air of tranquility amidst it all.
Breathe...

Hi Corrinne, the picture of the "Bee-tai-bak"/ "Lou Shu Fen" looks delish! I prefer it in soup though. Hey, do you know that there's an ice-cream parlor that sells locally-made flavors like Teh Tarik, Puloh Hitam, Ice Kachang etc? Or maybe you already knew about the place? I'm a regular patron at "Island Creamery", located at Serene Centre or Great World City's basement level outside Cold Storage. You should try it when you're in Singapore :)

Heh, the cat looks meaner than most cats here in Singapore. Guess they make it earn her keep over there.
