We watched a Nat Geo documentary celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Telescope in orbit. It's such an inspiring human feat. And of course I love this picture of "The Pillars of Creation". (Read this if you don't already know about it: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pillars_of_Creation). 
The cosmic brilliance of this picture makes one wonder:

How can we not marvel at the enormity of the empire He orchestrates,
An explosion here with molecules playing havoc giving birth to entire galaxies,
And thousands of light years away, at the same time,
A little child's silent prayer to make the rain stop so he can play.

The Bangkok Weekend

K & I went to Bangkok this weekend to see our cousins. A lot of good food, a lot of reminiscing about childhood, a lot of water activities for the kids (first time surfing for little K)...a wholesome family weekend :)

The Star Wars Party

Little K's 6th was more fun for me than him! Loved making the Princess Leia cupcakes, the Luke-Darth Vader cake and well, um, the very deformed Yoda parathas.
I don't mean that...he definitely had more fun than me :)

Dubai Calling

Dreamt of a manakeesh last night. Fresh out of an oven. With zaatar topping. Must go back and visit Dubai soon.
