New beginnings..

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, January 01, 2011
A new year is a new start, a new beginning to things. New year to me is like hitting the reset button. All those past 'mistakes', that become great learning opportunities, are all gone starting from now. Its time to try to make things right. Things like how I can be a more effective teacher? What strategies should I adopt to help my students get their As?

I do not know how this 2011 year will end, but I do hope that along the way, I will make little adjustments to whatever problems I might face so that I can correct it there and then. My new year resolution is to be make a more conscious effort in the things I love to do and want to do..to stop giving myself excuses. To put in simply, "Just do it!"

Tonight, I specially prepared steamboat cum BBQ for my family so that we can all dine in together at the comfort of our own home.

I always believe in a family sitting together around the dinner table and having a good meal as we fellowship and have meaningful conversations. But of course, right now, Caleb and Danielle just loves to stare at the TV while eating and have not learnt how to make conversations yet, but I am hoping to change all that and inculcate great and meaningful family time every day.

Here's our simple New Year's dinner! I prepared beef (marinated with Japanese BBQ sauce and garlic), pork, fresh prawns (marinated with wine, ginger and salt), threadfin fish slices (marinated with sesame oil, ginger, pepper, salt, soy sauce), shitake mushrooms, veggies, egg beancurd and homemade meatballs.




This is my version of comfort food!




The beef and prawns was the highlight of the dinner. Even Vicky who doesnt eat beef, enjoyed eating a slice of it!

Happy 2011 to one and all! May this year be a meaningful and purposeful one!
