Push on..

Something worth fighting for never comes easy. If it came easy, we wouldn't treasure it as much as it wasn't worth fighting for.

Being focused on the goal requires energy, determination and dedication to achieve it.

I hope that everyone in the world will achieve at least one of their dreams, and be happy.

Life is passing by so quickly. It is short so make full use of it, make a difference and be a blessing to others.

Life is great. :)

God is good. :)

Here's the law of success that keeps me going:

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but you think you can't
It is almost certain you won't

If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man.

But, sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can!

Dine LA 2012

We went to two Dine LA restaurants in a day - Bouchon @ Beverly Hills and MEET in Paris @ Culver City.
Here's the menu for Bouchon :

 Bouchon has a class on it's own- simple elegance that pleases the taste buds :)

Next is MEET in Paris.... and here's their menu:

 Overall, the experience was not a terrific one as we had to wait for a long time for our food, and the fish was not cooked thoroughly in the middle. The manager was apolegetic and gave us extra desserts, teas, and coffee. I think I like their desserts best...
Between our two dine la meals, we had a nice treat- eating gelato while enjoying the beach! It is one of the best gelatos I've eaten in USA! Although it is pricey, I'll still go back for it as the quality is top-notch. All their ingredients are air-flown from Italy. In some sense, it is cheaper than flying to Italy for gelato. :) It is called Grom Geletaria in Malibu Beach. It has a list of flavors separated into categories for people who have certain nut- allergies, lactose intolerance, want vegan options, etc...
 Saw a ghostbuster's car along santa monica coast and malibu beach. Super cool!
I am so blessed...thank you Lord for everything  :)
