Hey everyone! Things have been quiet around here lately. I apologise. I do have a few (late) manis to show in the coming days. But today is a special day, so I want to post on time! :)
Today marks the day where most of us celebrates Mother's day! A joyous occasion indeed; for us to remember and reminisce on how much love our Mother has poured out to us over the years. So, in conjunction of today's occasion, I've made a simple nail art to celebrate the some of the many similarities we shared.
Every Mother's day, it is a tradition that my church gifts each Mothers with carnation flowers. I have often pondered why specifically this flower and questioned my Mum about it when I was young. To which she answered that she wasn't sure either. But we both agreed on the fact that this flower is lovely and we do love it's fragrance.
Growing up, Mum and I shared a lot in common. Not just in looks, but also in taste buds. As to not overwhelm the mani, I've kept to a few simple flavours in life that we shared. Depicted on index finger, is a cup (mug) of coffee. We love coffee. Haha~! In Malaysian terms, we're Coffee-kaki. It's sort of like Coffee-partners-in-crime kinda thing. Hahaha! XD However, we're not coffee experts. To us, a good cup of coffee means rich in taste and not so sweet. Quite simple, no? :P
On the ring finger, a simple 'M' monogram to represent 'Mother'. Three chocolate hearts for the love of bitter chocolates. The bitter it is, the better it taste. I guess it's rather obvious we don't like to consume stuffs that are too sweet. Besides, dark chocolates are healthier too :P Haahaha! Oh by the way, raise your hand if you see mango! No? Aww, surely you can't miss that cheerful colour on the background? Well, the other flavour we share in common is the love for mango. Mango ice-cream, mango desserts, mango cake, mango pudding, mango... everything. Even the fruit itself is so juicy and tasty. We like it sweet and we like it sour-ish too. Natural sweetness in fruits are always welcome. As long as it's not excessively added sugar.
There have been many occasions where my Mum and I ended up calling the same stuffs off the menus. It's all good though. Sometimes, we get to each call a different flavour if there happens to be two that we want to try. Hahaha!! And having someone so close to me like Mum sharing so much in common with me, I really couldn't ask for a better companion in life. :) So here's a quick thank you:
Thank You, Mum.
For having such great tastes.
And because I'm somewhat your clone, I have great tastes too ;D
Happy Mother's Day! ^.^
....and Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers out there! Have a wonderful time!
