Work has been mad busy of late with so much more on my plate with the reorganisation and all. I had, several times almost chose the out option. Somehow life here is really taxing and stressful. Not a conducive country to live in. Life should not be just about work ya? I tend to think lots more about life nowadays. And so people says one gets wiser when older? Hahaha!
Soup heals the soul, doesn't it? Well, at least for me. With this period of stressful moments in office, I try to make it up to our bodies and health by making more soups. No other food comforts me as much as soups do! Easy to cook, yummy to consume. Slurp!
