Last night`s Iftar and

this mornings Suhoor!

We went to Aux Epices last night for iftar. It is a French Malaysian Fusion restaurant in Chinatown, that boasts of tasty cheapeats. Malaysian cuisine is remenicient of Indonesian cuisine, so Dexter and I were excited to try it. http://auxepicesnyc.com  

I was very impressed by the decor, food presentation and ambiance! I ordered Chicken Curry and Dexter ordered Chicken Rendang. The spices and flavors were excellent, but both meals were over salted. The coconut rice had excellent flavor, but was a bit too soft/over cooked. 

I would give Aux Epices one more chance to “wow” me. Everyone deserves a second chance, don`t they?

We then went to Cha Chan Tang for tasty tea! http://chachantangnyc.com

For Suhoor we had grapes, pear, cheese, multi grain and seed bread and Brambleberry Tazo Tea. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

A Bird`s Song

A birds song

and the flutter of wings

I look out of the window

three blue birds sit in the same tree

blue birds!

I am enchanted by their beauty!

Why would anyone want to put her

in a cage?

Her wings were meant to fly!

Beauty lies within that freedom.

So, spread your wings wide,

fly!

I do hope that you will visit again, someday.
