Friday's Feast #13

Feast One Hundred and Thirty Four
What is your usual bedtime? Do you like that, or would you rather it be different?

I usually sleep past 1 a.m. It would be nice to have an earlier sleeping time, say 10:30 p.m. I usually have more time to blog at night when my son is sleeping so I tend to sleep late.

When it comes to advice, do you give more or receive more?

I think I give more advice than receive. I give advice to family and friends who seek some guidance and help. But I'm more often there to lend them an ear. I learned that sometimes listening alone means so much to a person. I'm careful about giving unsolicited advices because I don't want people to think that I'm sticking my nose in their personal business.

Describe a memorable meal you've had.

On our recent beach trip, my husband grilled some fresh fish, squid and pork. We had some grilled eggplant as well and some salted eggs (which I recently featured for my photo hunt). We were able to buy freshly caught squid from the fisherman we encountered at the beach. It was a simple meal but it was so memorable because of our beautiful surroundings.

Main Course
Name a work of fiction that affected the way you think about something.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

This line is from the Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I'm sure many of you are familiar with this book. I love the story and how the author reminds us of the simple truths that we seem to forget as we grow older.

What is your favorite type of fruit juice?

I love fresh mango juice. I prefer ripe mangoes but occasionally I order green mango shake at the restaurant.
