One is the milky Western version while is other is an Asian version that I often make for dinner.
In the wee hours of the morning on this date 5 years ago, Canterbury was struck by an earthquake that led to a chain of aftershocks including the devastating 21 February 2011 quake.

You know, in case I forget what it was like – highly doubt I ever will though…I hope.
