In the movies there is always one with red red lips who is beautiful and cruel. She is the one who drives the men crazy and laughs them all away. Her power is her own. She will not give it away.

I have begun my own quiet war. Simple. Sure. I am one who leaves the table like a man, without putting back the chair or picking up the plate.

I enjoyed the crab, mango and avocado rolls so much, I made them again using prawns, avocado and soba noodles; equally delicious!
