Happy Valentine's Day 2011!

Here is a poem (not written by me but I wish it was) dedicated to my wonderful husband Khoa:

Valentine Treasures
Valentine treasures are people who
have often crossed your mind,
family, friends and others, too,
who in your life have shined
the warmth of love or a spark of light
that makes you remember them;
no matter how long since you’ve actually met,
each one is a luminous gem,
who gleams and glows in your memory,
bringing special pleasures,
and that’s why this Valentine comes to you:
You’re one of those sparkling treasures!
- Joanna Fuchs

These love cakes are red velvet with whipped-cream cream cheese frosting! These are made for Kenny for his girlfriend Chi, and for An for his girlfriend Linda! I hope you guys enjoy these along with your chocolate covered strawberries and I hope you guys have the sweetest day with each other! =) All the decorations are made of fondant with gold luster dust and edible pearls painted gold. I also wanted to say happy Happy Valentine's Day to my sweetie Khoa, I love you and thank you for making me feel special even when you don't have to! =)

So are you stuck on what to write on your valentine's card? Well here are some cheesy but witty quotes that you can use to help put a smile on your love's face! Enjoy!

- To the world, you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.
- Love me and the world is mine.
- Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.
- The most beautiful view is the one I share with you.
- Love is friendship set on fire!
- Come live in my heart and pay no rent.
- Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
- Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!
- Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness.
- Love is the greatest refreshment in life.

Chúc Mừng Năm Mới!

Happy Vietnamese (Tết) and Chinese New Years everyone! This Lunar New Year is going to be the lucky year of the rabbit, so everyone please go pet and adopt our cute cuddle long-eared critters now! Or...just don't eat them haha. So my office had this awesome New Years party and they totally went all out with decorations and food and really got into the spirit of things, and they asked me to make some cupcakes for this special occasion! So, I decided to make red velvet cupcakes with whipped-cream cream cheese frosting! I used some chocolate gold coins for money cupcakes, and the bunny rabbits, Asian boy and girl, flowers, oranges, and lanterns are made out of fondant. i also used metallic pearls for the center of the flowers and top of the firecrackers. I added some gold lucky luster dust for added shiny details as well. Biting into one of these sweets will definitely bring you good fortune... for your tummy at least! I want to give special thanks to my sweet loving hubby Khoa for helping me get to the supplies and ingredients for these cupcakes. I cannot have a happier new year without him! Thank you for always supporting me, loving me, and making my life wonderful!

Now some words of wisdom for your soul:
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.
Aspire to the principle, behave with virtue, abide by benevolence, immerse yourself in the arts.
A life with love is happy; a life for love is foolish.
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
A conversation with a wise person is worth of ten years' study of books.
A diamond with a flaw is worth more than a pebble without imperfections.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
A bad word whispered will echo a hundred miles.
Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.
Now for some light-hearted Chinese Proverbs:
Passionate kiss like spider's web, soon lead to undoing of fly.
War doesn't determine who is right, war determines who is left.
Man who run in front of car get tired.
Man who run behind car get exhausted.
Man who drive like hell, bound to get there.
Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement.
Chúc mừng năm mới & Gong Xi Fa Cai/Gong Hey Fat Choy everyone!! =) I wish everyone good health, great happiness, and prosperity for this lucky year of the rabbit/cat!
