I celebrated Thanksgiving for the first in my life and was weirdly excited about it.
My friend made a huge lunch and invited us to her home (thanks Queen), and it was bliss. This is just the kind of thing that moves meA cosy home meal surrounded by friends and festivity. I’ve always read about Thanksgiving in America, but we don’t have that in Singapore…instead I have Chinese New Year with lots of mandarin oranges and red packets and noisy Chinese music
I’m not that familiar with Thanksgiving, but I like the simple purpose of giving thanks and having something or someone to be happy for.
I was also happy for dessert
Pumpkin pie has always been an object of the internet, and finally getting to see and eat one in real life was a surreal experience (do you use the word surreal when you eat food for the first time?). It was exactly how I imagined it to taste like, all soft and creamy with a flaky, chewy crustSomehow in my mind I’d made it out to be a symbol of Thanksgiving (followed by turkey and mashed potatoes).
By the way, I brought pineapple tarts from Singapore
Also shoutout to Manatsu and her oatmeal bars because they were great
The last couple of weeks have been rough, but having friends and occasions to look forward to every once in a while keeps me goingPlus, I just got my extra warm Heat Tech (shoutout to Uniqlo too) and I’m all ready for the cold too.
It’s going to be 2016 soon!
