Dreaming through the Noise
I lower the needle. The opening line of soothing jazz wafts into the kitchen as the Sunday morning ritual commences. Life is a hodgepodge of sacred ceremonies.
I get in the car, stinking of hot oil, fried chicken, and whatever else got on me during my longer-than-normal shift that day. My legs are cramping, I have a mild headache, and I’m still irritated from being shorthanded at work and trying to figure out how to help cover shifts at work after too many people have called in because they were sick… or because they didn’t realize that their shift started and they needed to be in for said shift, despite being told when their shift was. I don’t know it but I’m going to get in the shower later in the evening and feel a mild stinging sensation as warm water hits several new grease burns on my forearms. I sigh and rub my temple, and my husband Pat looks at me.

Have you ever heard of UFO tarts?
These past few days, I have been craving for UFO tarts. You heard me correctly! UFO tarts. Lots of people wanted to know what a UFO tart was. It's a tart that's meringue-based and filled with egg custard. My family used to have these pretty frequently back home in Sandakan, a small city in East Malaysia. Traditionally, East Malaysia was known as Borneo, the land below the wind. It brought back sweet memories of the UFO tarts my grandmother always gave me when I did something right. All the way through my teenage years, these were regarded as a sign of great reward.
