exposing yourself to yourself has been an introspective journey I’ve been going through in my martial arts journey. being self aware has been crucial in my improvement as a student and as a coach.
knowing my limitations and weaknesses has allowed me to be more accepting of mt realities. this often leads to that extra push / motivation needed in order for me to spend more time working on them.
it is always easier to have excuses not to work on your weak sides. working on them requires a mind set that starts as humbling and ends as empowering.
i fight the urge to make excuses. it is a constant battle… I’m glad I’m winning so far 🙂

A good stare at this wide bowl is in order as light bounces of the olive oil herb infused dish. Properly seasoned and sauteed the best they could.
Tender shrimps (not those gummy bear types you eat at other joints), that pop with every bite. Addicting until the last piece. Fight the urge to have another one, a main course is in order here — Gambas at Cafe Enye

As the plate is lowered, our scrutinous eyes dissect this vessel of crispy swine in our midst. Meat is tender, portions are heavenly, just the right amount of fat lines, crispy crackling top layer skin — a MUST with this kind of dish.
Our love affair with porky chunks are satisfied. Cooked just right, no oily after taste and the enye rice is the best dancer for this one. — Pork Pancheta at Cafe Enye.

Noodles and bean sprouts bathing in a lush coco creamy soupy mash up. The ensemble has a hearty mix of squid, shrimp and clams. Needless to say this bowl of seafood goodness was a welcoming tone to other dishes we ordered.
Served hot and yummy. Be ready to slurp it all down. Personally, had they made it spicy, would’ve been a step next to perfection. — Malay seafood laksa from Banana Leaf Curry.

A western favorite with an asian twist. Smoky, sweet and sour savory tenderness lathered in sauce. My skepticism overturned and my belly full, the approach to this dish was acceptable.
Best way their hainanese rice – Baby Back Ribs at Banana Leaf.

The spirituality that runs deep in the culture of this country is almost the same as ours. Temples are abundant on every other block as a clear indication of its people’s devotion to the realm of our souls.
Very intricate lines play with attention to detail as these places of worship are an expression of life, culture and art. I can’t help but feel the oneness of humanity in the presence of these monuments.
