I wish I could fit in one of the quail dish and Fifteen's chocolate mousse, but at the same time I'm glad I didn't! I don't think I can afford the repercussion. :P

I've uploaded a series of food pictures in my Facebook account, Facebook | My Photos - Taste Festivals 2008. But, of course, Facebook won't let you view it unless you're a member. Ick! So, I uploaded a selected few into my flickr account. :) Check them out here! :P


Now... I really should restrain myself from going to the Festival Indonesia 2008!!! Especially seeing that I have DWS NAB team lunch this Wednesday followed by DWS Social Club subsidised SouthGate Progressive Dinner! But, they might have some of the Indonesian food that I'm craving at the Food Fair.... x( Wacks!

Yup - even the mighty falls... Therefore, to reach a goal, the most important thing is to have a plan to pick ourselves up when we trip over. The worst thing we could do is to give up when we fall! :)
