Things have been busy around here…

Fruit skewers with warm chocolate sauce

Things have beeb so busy around here. There’s personal and family matter to attend to, decisions to be made…

My flat is in a mess, and I struggle to find the time to balance between work, study, and other things in life. Sometimes I wonder if it’s time I made a decision to focus on what I want to do rather than running around meeting others’ expectation.

Hopefully things will light up real soon.

I leave you with a simple dessert that I styled and shot recently: Fruit skewers with dark chocolate sauce, warmed up with some cinnamon and nutmeg. It was so good, really.
