Chow Chow

The hubs and I were passing a parking lot when we spotted this friendly chow chow in a pickup truck.

The owner was nowhere to be seen.
We hopped into a pharmacy nearby to pick up some meds and according to the pharmacist who was attending to us, the dog in the truck is a familiar sight in this part of the neighbourhood.

Apparently, the owner stops by regularly to run an errand while the dog waits patiently in the truck!

Taiwanese Braised Pork

Turns out, many of us were channelizing our inner master chefs during the lockdown and I must say my recipe repertoire has certainly expanded, thanks to the myriad Youtube videos that kept popping up in my feed.

It took a pandemic to help me rediscover the joys of home cooking!

I found my zen garden in the kitchen.

A recipe to share

There you go  an amazing rice bowl that is topped with aromatic, toothsome, caramelized, melt-in-your-mouth pork morsels and a braised hard-boiled egg!

Last night, I was over the moon when I had the amazing opportunity to witness a moonbow for the first time in my 58 years of life!

There are some things you just can't capture in a photo. This shot on my phone  couldn't possibly do justice to what I had witnessed.

I was bewitched by the spectral sighting.

Never had I ever seen a rainbow haloing a moon!

Ghostly and alluring, it was like gazing at a portal into another realm!
Several conditions have to be just right for a moonbow to occur

Upon googling, I learned that a moonbow also known as a lunar halo or lunar rainbow, is a rare natural atmospheric phenomenon that occurs when the moon's light is reflected and refracted off water droplets in the air.

In other words, it is a rainbow produced by moonlight rather than sunlight.

It is believed that a moonbow brings good luck to the localized area it is viewed in.

In these strange and uncertain times, I have been looking up at the heavens a lot lately for signs of good things to come.

Perhaps this is a harbinger of something great on its way?
