Food Business in Mind

My friend Raqs and I discussed about food business again just awhile ago. But before today we already discussed of franchising some burger business. This is what we do always :), we talked about food and business.
I just hope and pray that this business in mind will indeed come to pass and the good Lord may indeed bless the desires of our hearts and the works of our hands.
God bless everyone! happy weekend.

Here are some pics.
Happy drooling to all of us!

B-day food! :)

This is a bizarre arrangements of the food we had on my birthday. We really don't have  a party at our house because I felt like I do't want to have many people. So we did not invite other friends but only my closest one. Every dish came from my visitor friend.
I am so thankful that God has given me beautiful friends not only the outside appearance but most of all their inwards one.

Party at our house :)

we have crab with coconut milk, grilled blue marlin, a roll of red ribbon chocolate cake, mixed vegetables, corn soup, orange fruit, rice and a wine or just a coke in a wine glass (lol!).
This was during valentines night 2010.
There were three couples in our house. Two were married and the other one are just dating/engage(?). We don't have enough money to go out for a date coz valentines is not that a bi deal with us. And so we decided to have a fancy dinner at our house.
