There will always come a time when you want to whip up something special but you don't actually have the resources to do so. Special meals at special places will no doubt leave a hole in your wallet, or worse, if you already had an existing "hole" in your wallet, it will just expand and … Continue reading Homecooked with Love.
The only downside to celebrating these National and International Something or Other Days is that Malaysia is always a day ahead of the United States, so whatever National or International Celebrated Day will always and only be known about the following day. The only way to overcome this is to constantly check the calendar on … Continue reading Happy National Cat Day!
My voracious appetite for books and reading has earned me a number of interrogative questions, especially by my relatives on how many books I've read, how many books do I buy at one given time, and how is it that I can go for long periods reading and not falling asleep. Because many people I … Continue reading To Read, Or Not to Read.
Different people have different ways of dealing with stress. Some people go to bed. Others indulge in a little retail therapy (though, the money spent is hardly ever 'little'). Some bury their noses in their favourite books (I do that too). Others will bury their faces in exclusive facial spa sessions. I used to read … Continue reading Because Sushi, Because Sashimi.
In four days' time, you will have the perfect reason to break out the candy bars, restock the chocolates and sweets and all manners of tasty treats in your kitchen. Not because it's football season (although the Barclay's Premier League 2015-2016 has already began), but because in four days' time, on October 31st, it will … Continue reading Fright Night on October 31.
Now, I'm not one to talk about anything political or economical. Because I'm not interested in either topic. But I feel that as a Malaysian, I should perhaps make mention of either topic to show my support for the nation. And because I believe that one day, we can be a better nation too. The … Continue reading The Malaysian Budget 2016.
It was what every fan was dreaming of --- their team scoring goal after goal, defeating rival after rival, week in, week out. It was what every critic needed, a prolific striker silencing the naysayers with the right substance. It was what every manager was hoping for --- their players to shine when the time … Continue reading EPL Review: Arsenal vs. Everton.
It is probably not wise to have dessert for dinner but I wasn't in the right mindset to make a decision. Because I wasn't hungry when dinnertime arrived and I wasn't about to rain unnecessary blows on my bowels. I've suffered from bloating and tummy discomfort before, especially when I'm not hungry but I'd eat … Continue reading Little Bites of Delight.
When I enrolled in college, my first laptop was a Dell. And it was Hell. After a year, the laptop began to show signs of wear and tear, and the battery life started draining by the chunks on a regular basis. And I only used it for college assignments and basic web surfing. I rarely … Continue reading The Dell from Hell.
I believe Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may have discovered a pot of leprechaun's gold beneath a rainbow before the match between his team and Bayern Munich. Or maybe his wife could have pressed a four-leaf clover into his management diary a few days prior to the big game. Because the two goals that were scored … Continue reading Arsenal wins UEFA Match out of Sheer Luck.
With a little honesty, people will tell you that they don't enjoy competition. They will tell you that they wished they could run their business, or study for an exam without the heat of a bright spark whose brain is bigger and with a faster processing speed than yours. Wouldn't you wish you had no … Continue reading Rife with Competition.
Arsenal continued to keep the heat up on Premier League leaders Manchester City with a well-played, and well-deserved 3-0 victory over Watford. Taking all three points from this match is crucial if they want to maintain second place and to ultimately seize top spot, if they can. Apparently, Santi Cazorla was the 'Man of the … Continue reading EPL 2015: Watford vs. Arsenal.
