Clam chowder. Sadly, I can’t claim this is a great bowl of chowder. In fact, I personally wouldn’t call this a chowder. It was too thin and watery, way too many onions for my taste. A lot less of everything else. I get what you were trying to do, but not feeling it. That said, plating was nice, but the pita (I think it was pita) croutons were too dense to work as a crouton for this soup. #clamchowder#chowder#soup#clams#dinner
Good food and good Company in our stop over at Townsville, just hanging out now while we wait for our next flight ✈️ we don't touch down in Brisbane till tonight🛬
So a couple of beverages is going down nicely while we have an uncommon uninterrupted conversation.🍻 It is nice! Still missing my little loves though. ❤️ @vector_adman

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: "The one who guides to something good has a reward similar to the one doing it" (Muslim)
The Prophet ﷺ said: Convey (knowledge) from me even if it is just one ayah [Bukhari 3461]. May Allahﷻ have mercy on them and us. May Allahﷻ help them and every single Muslim suffering across the world. Ameen.
I’m saying this to men, to women, to married people, to gay people, to colleagues, to acquaintances, friends, family. I’m going to treat every meeting with you, like it’s a date.
If you were going on a date with someone you liked, you’d prioritise making it happen. You’d be too excited about the prospect of meeting them to keep them hanging. Work, life, health and other people would be valid justifications but you would make sure they didn’t become excuses. You’d ensure you didn’t need an excuse. You’d be on time.
You’d treat the meeting like it was conscious manifestation of what you wanted. Not a tolerable alternative when you had nothing better to do & didn’t feel like the effort of saying no. You'd not turn it into free therapy or professional advice to be more productive because meeting them would be gift enough.
You'd bring your best self. You’d dress nicely. You’d speak with consideration and thought. You’d care about their wanting to meet you again, not assuming that it would be default. You'd make the effort to be good company.
You’d care about their opinion of you. You'd show them. You’d acknowledge the effort they made to please you. You’d be respectful of the thought they put in and that they could have been elsewhere but they chose to spend this time with you.
I promise to treat every meeting with you like this. I expect you to do so too. If you don’t, I can write you off as a bad date rather than internalise your inability to treat me well, as reflection of my abilities. This means I will not have as many dates but that’s okay. I’d rather have one great date with you in six months than ten lousy ones in a month.
My time is precious and so is yours. My emotions are valuable to me. I invest both carefully. If you do as well, maybe we'll have a great date soon!
