BUY, PICK, LUST!

Every day I am confronted in the road by screaming billboards. Reminding me that I have yet to own the latest in fashion and technology; that I have yet to achieve the silkiest skin and society’s dream body; that their cake is chocolatier and the chicken is crispier.

It made me breathe less or shall I say that my breathing is heavier, harder  — “Chocolate cake or dream body? Latest in fashion or crispy chicken?” It’s hard to satisfy advertisers at the same time — more so if you are not at all interested but somehow compelled to want it.

I dream of regular road travels that will leave me breathless of nature’s beauty and abundance. And today I want to thank Artist Stephen Glassman for his dream of putting a crack in the urban skyline and allow us to take a breath despite the traffic.

Urban Air will transform existing old urban billboards to breathing spaces with suspended bamboo gardens.

 

To make this come true at least $100,000.00 pledges is needed — and then the project will be funded. Please check the team behind the project in their  KickStarter page.

I can’t wait to see similar project here in the Philippines.

I can’t wait to see a whispering billboard reminding me to BREATHE, PRAISE, LOVE.

Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD. – Psalm 150:6

Not Alone

born to parents

left to aunts

passed on to grandma

back to parents

forwarded to hubby

stayed with kiddos

back to me

back to You

You who will never give me up

You who will never leave me

You who will never stop loving me

You who is ever faithful

*

As we journey through life it is inevitable that we will be left behind; that we will be left out — but never left alone.

It is cold in here

But not one with cold shoulders

Warm heart is working

 

Thursday Poet Rally is cool — and so too The Tickly Turtle!

 

Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. – Hebrews 13:5

asparagus and mushroom dress by Melissa

Yup that is inspired by my favorite veggies!

I simply requested it from Melissa

and the talented fashion designer was gracious enough

to came up with it here in Pink Spilled Paint!

And for my recipe, here try it.

Ingredients:

2 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups 1/2 inch cubed firm tofu
200 grams asparagus, sliced into 1-inch pieces
1 cup sliced shiitake mushroom
3 tbsp oyster sauce mixed with 1/4 cup water

1. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté garlic and tofu together until the tofu turns light gold.

2. Add the shiitake mushroom and the oyster sauce mixture. Leave for about 10 minutes.

3. Toss the asparagus with the tofu mushroom. It will take about 4 minutes for the asparagus to cook.

4. Transfer to a serving plate.

BURP!

hmm I think a red bell pepper dress would be lovely.

How about you, what veggie dress do you have in mind right now?

Let’s IMAGINE it altogether!
