Lifes' Happy Endings

I have been caught in a sweeping number of weddings and festivities this season. With my weekends all lined up with weddings to attend for the next few weeks. It seems as though, toasting the couple and packing that sacred (yet dammed) ang-pao (red packet) will become second nature to me. Besides having to deal with wardrobe malfunction crisis, there's also the many dinner parties to deal with. Menus to plan, budgets to fix, turkeys to stuff... It's funny how that morbit smile is still sneaking across my face.

Seeing my friend and beloved senior from ODAC wed his girlfriend of 10 years in the church followed by a lovely wedding lunch the next day. It occured to me, the trials and tribulations one has to go through to finally be with mister/mrs perfect. Through the endless days of scrimping and saving. The couple have finally tied the knot, with not only a lavish wedding but a cosy love nest of their own. Yes.. it take that long. Perhaps.. just perhaps its time to tighten the purse strings.. but the dilemma is strong. So many dreams yet to be accomplished, so many things I want to do. Perhaps, someday I will be bestowed with the same gift. only time will tell...

That bit of saltiness would work well for me =)

LIC: it's not reallie that sweet. when sugar is caramelised.. there's this deeper flavor to it.. almost toasty and smoky.. deeper than just sweet. It's a reallie good combination! i did add a few flakes of sea salt to the top. and used salted butter in the caramel. But not too much. Salted caramel is still a rather subjective liking.

Weili: I think so too! the burst of flavors.. the melding of two distinctivly different sensations is simply mindblowing!

Lovely tarts! I know what's the great mistake in my tart making. I misread the amount of butter used!!! It's double the amount, that's why it was so greasy. Argh...
