Spicy Chicken Mince Tofu with Bean Paste Sauce on Mung Bean Vermicilli

And so we have been married for just over 1 month. =)

Some may say argue that marriage should not change a relationship- but I beg to differ. It's funny how our brains work- despite being a dating couple for so many years, marriage just bring us closer. Another step ahead. Ee are family now. The responsibilities, future planning, fianaces is just a notch higher than before. AR even speaks like a husband... just the way he stand, the ideas he brought forward and when I asked what changed, he looked at me and say.. well, i'm a husband now.. I am responsible for the family too. No longer me you but it's always us.

Our jobs for instance has been a topic of discussion lately. One of my closest colleague has decided to resign. Well actually, I'm the last person standing at the moment till more ppl decides to join us. AR raised a very good point that my horrible working hours are affecting him as well- that made me really think hard. It's no longer about what my career choices are but what each decision affect us.

And what about food you say? According to AR, his colleague said that his lunches look and smell better now that he is married.... hey! that's unfair.. it has always been me making his lunches..how can they be different? LOL =)

OK, I know I have not been blogging about food lately so I'm going to end this super long post with a dish that is really quick but yummy to prepare.
