Just when the catepillar thought the world was over...

It became a butterfly!

I love this quote. It basically means don't give up. It's a great pick me up quote and now I found the perfect pictures for it at

You can have this quote on your wall too with this stick and peel wall decal with quote.

I've read so many quotes I can now start writing my own. So here is one love quote just for Valentine's Day.

“Love may start quickly but love that is patient, slow and kind survives in the long run”
Just like the tortoises which I chose to represent this quote. Love that is slow is enduring like the tortoises. I like it that one tortoise appears to be protecting the other in the image. In love, we look out for each other and take care of each other when the rest of the world seems unkind. In love, it is wonderful to have a mate who will always be there for you.

Happy Valentine's Day.

I've got some leftover Chinese Fortune Cookies from Chinese New Year. I love serving them to my guests during Chinese New Year because the 'fortune' within are usually in the form of Quotes which make a nice ice-breaker conversation with my guests. After all, most of these guests only visit once a year! Sometimes, we need to warm up a bit to get the conversation started and a fortune cookie can do that very well indeed. I usually serve my guests some lunch, so the fortune cookies also double up as a snack while waiting for my lunch to be ready...

The Chinese Fortune cookies come individually wrapped up. Very nice.

Here's how a complete Chinese Fortune Cookie looks like. It is very crisp and rather sweet.

Here's a Chinese Fortune Cookie with a quote inside. Normally you have to eat the cookie to get to the quote but this one had a gap at the side so I pulled the quote out. The quote or "fortune" is written in Chinese and English.

Today, I had two leftover Chinese Fortune Cookies. Here are the Quotes from my Chinese Fortune Cookies...

The Secret of Getting Ahead is Getting Started 
Hmm... Well, I haven't been blogging for a long time and I feel kind of stuck so I guess I will just have to get right down to it and start.
Loving Words From the Heart Are Never Forgotten
February is the month of Love so remember to utter words of love to all your loved ones. They will always be remembered in the heart and never forgotten. Happy Valentine's Day!

Perhaps I will eat more Chinese Fortune Cookies tomorrow and reveal more quotes from my cookies on this blog.
