Vegetable Stir Fry | #UyaisKitchen x #OhahaEats

Last week, I teamed up with Vanessa of Style By Ohaha to create a simple but delicious meal that anyone and I mean anyone can pull off.

And while we prepped and stuff, we had a light but great conversation and for the moment, I missed my friends as they don’t stay in the same state as I. It’s a vision of mine to be able to have light convos over a good meal and a glass of wine some day. And I really missed gisting with Seki while ‘forcing’ her to cut vegetables at my kitchen table (inside joke).

Something about cooking that I love is the process and for me, it reminds me of the way life progresses. It’s a journey.
From the raw ingredients being purchased at the local market or store, to being washed and prepared, to being put together with oils and spices via whatever cooking process chosen and some minutes later, a whole meal ready to be shared is made.

Inasmuch as this is a food post, I’ll be sharing a few nuggets on life too;

  • Life is a journey, so make sure you enjoy it every step of the way.
  • Learn to enjoy the highs and the lows because honestly, life gets dull with only highs.
  • Be kind, don’t use the safety of the screen/ internet to bully people. This has been increasing at an alarming rate recently especially on the streets of twitter.

See what I said about it here.

Going Back to the Basics

Looking back at when I started “blogging, I remember I enjoyed sharing my day to day experiences, while making them sound like stories worth telling, I also created consistent and original ‘stuff’.

But as time went on, I got caught up in the bug of finding a niche to define my work such that if I went out, I could say;” Hello, I’m Eno and I’m a life and beauty blogger”. When I should have just stuck to being a blogger.

I literally just spent the past 2 hours reading through my favourite posts all from 2016 and wondering why I let myself get this far.

It is a huge disservice to not only you, my reader, but to myself as well.

I’ve let down myself because the joy that comes from this, is barely there anymore. And so, I have promised myself, this year, to go back to the basics and find that joy I got whenever I sat at my laptop to put so.ething new put.

So, get ready for my 800+ words and my usual digressing and tons of photos because, the Uyai family is going to make a comeback this 2019.

And on that note, I wish you a happy New year and I hope you join me in rediscovering my passions and on this journey called life.

Love and light,

Uyai.
