One half each and the relationship will not sour

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”

The saying goes, “One-half each and the relationship will not sour.” This line is a translation from part of the lyrics in the popular Hokkien (a dialect of Chinese) song, One Half. There is also the version sang by a stage singer, Liu Ling Ling, and the Chinese duet version (my favourite).

This saying reflects the belief of sharing that entrenches deeply in my culture. Sharing is a way of life, as people live in communities and do things together. It is in this light that I have chosen pictures of drinks that I had enjoyed together with my partner for this photo challenge. 1. Two cups of soya bean curd in brown sugar. My partner and I were shocked yet delighted to find this in The Philippines. Surprised because soya bean curd in sugared water is a Chinese dessert that is readily available in our country (and Malaysia, Taiwan, or Hong Kong) but is hard to find even in China itself. Delighted because it gave us comfort amidst the tasty seafood and simple grills. It was something light on the palate. IMG_47022. Yoghurt drink and mango yoghurt drink. Both my partner and I love thick yoghurt drinks. IMG_45063. We were having cocktails on the beach. IMG_4536 4. Two glasses of chilled drinks to welcome my partner and me at the resort. An honourable mention goes to the little bouquet of Ixora flowers by the side. I have a soft spot for Ixora flowers because of they are so cute and bright. You could eat the saps of Ixora too!

5. Orange juice and ice coffee (if I recall correctly) during a meal at Boracay.two drinks orange juice and something

Enjoy!

Cheers to sharing half and half, and to an enduring relationship. Enjoy!
