EPL 2015: What’s Shakin’ This Weekend.

The Barclay’s Premier League returns this weekend after a host of Champions League matches played throughout the week. The results clocked in for four of the big English clubs left critics wondering which club has what it takes to finish the season in first place. Previous table-toppers Manchester City slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Juventus….

Oh, ‘APP’ solutely!

Who would have thought that Waze could help so many drivers today, to locate their destinations and avoiding as much traffic congestion as possible. Whoever came up with the idea for Waze was one helluva genius (geniuses, ‘app’ arently, because it was created by Israeli trio Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai, and Amir Shinar)!…

Macaron Mania.

Remember when I talked about macarons and macaroons, and finally laid out the differences in plain sight for everyone to see? Well, the spotlight today is on my favourite little things called ‘macarons’. I finally found a place where I could get them for a comfortable price. I say comfortable because it is not expensive…

EPL 2015: West Brom vs. Arsenal.

As Arsene Wenger described it for the press, it was a ‘perfect nightmare’. Everything that came together on that fateful Saturday night was a recipe for disaster and a perfect nightmare. Poor passing. Poor defense. Missed opportunities. An own goal. Recurring injuries. A growing list of injuries. And a missed penalty. If Wenger was in…

Going Clutter-Free.

“Oh my God, no, I can’t give this away! My ex-boyfriend gave me that teddy bear!” Does this sound familiar to you? There is a reason why your boyfriend has become your ex, someone you don’t see anymore, but the teddy bear he gave you for your fifth anniversary of being in a relationship with…

SEO is the Future.

There are way too many abbreviations, jargon and technical terms these days, especially in the world of social media and internet marketing. And especially since social media is a big thing and many companies have their own in-house teams or have acquired the services of a specialized agency. I feel confused just listening to people…

Book Review: Deep Down Things by Tamara Linse.

I’ve read this book earlier, and finished it within a week. Only because I brought the book with me to work and spent some time reading it on my lunch break. I realised that I missed out on a post of my thoughts and opinions about the book, so here it is. Today. We will…

Solidarity in Football

In 1914, a truce was unofficially called out by both the German and British soldiers on Christmas Day. Thus, the Armistice Day football match took place at Dale Barracks between German soldiers and Royal Welsh fusiliers. Click here for more information on this historical day. There was a show of solidarity in sports, especially football…

Gotham vs. Krypton.

Warning: Lost blog post ahead. There have been a lot of movie remakes lately, especially the ones with Peter Parker in it and the fairy-tales of Walt Disney. I vividly recall Kristen Stewart in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. Oh my God, please, no. Her acting was stiff and wooden in the Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight…

#PRAYFORPARIS

I woke up this morning to some really terrible news. That France had been on the receiving end of several deadly attacks. Was it the work of terrorists? I have yet to find out. So far I’ve read, 43 were killed with dozens injured and the French police are in the midst of their investigation…

The Evolution of Cups and Mankind.

Controversies keep us on our toes. That’s what I think. Because when there’s a controversy, there are all kinds of people who suddenly become geniuses overnight. They spout nonsense, thinking that they look or sound smarter. They start acting as if they know everything and that other people don’t and therefore, need to follow their…

Football: Fans vs. Managers.

Guilt is an emotion we feel when we have done something wrong and realised it enough to regret it. I’m sure we have all been guilty of something. You might be guilty for yelling at your mom last week. Your friend might feel guilty for lying to his or her spouse. Your parents could feel…

A Public Holiday Paradise.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Deepavali yesterday. I know I did, even if I didn’t visit any friends or attend any open houses. I had a friend return from Roswell, New Mexico for a few weeks’ holiday in Malaysia. Her husband is coming later this month but while she was here, I made some…

Happy Deepavali!

Here’s a shoutout to everyone in Malaysia and all over the world in every corner of the planet — Happy Deepavali, everyone! Hope you have a great public holiday and a wonderful celebration to boot! Credits go to my colleagues from my company, The Edge Media Group, for the colourful kolam (above).

EPL 2015: Arsenal vs Spurs.

Arsenal were made to fight hard for a draw last night in the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspurs. Sloppy defense in the first half enabled Harry Kane to take the lead for Spurs, but thankfully, Kieran Gibbs was lucky enough to rescue a point for the Gunners. Gibbs’ fluke shot hit the goalpost before…

Tipping Point of Relaxation.

Hello Friday, welcome back! We’ve been looking for you since Monday and expecting your arrival since Wednesday. Please stay a little longer this time, okay? Because we all need a longer break. Well, depends on how you see it but this weekend can be a long weekend because Deepavali falls on this coming Tuesday, 10…

Movie Review: Spectre.

I had the privilege of watching the premiere of ‘Spectre‘, the new James Bond instalment (courtesy of my father-in-law, who won four tickets to watch it at GSC in One Utama. So I went with my husband, and both my in-laws). Daniel Craig returned as the troubled, rule-breaking Agent 007, with Ralph Fiennes as ‘M’,…

Are You A Regular Customer?

Do you often eat at the same place? Or would you prefer to rotate your dining destinations? If you’re a regular customer at some eatery or diner, how often are you actually there? Until you reach a point where the restaurant service staff remembers you? Whether it is for your complicated order or that one…

Gone, Are The Hazy Days.

The haze in Malaysia now is a thing of the past. Roughly two months ago, the haze caused a lot of distress to Malaysians. Schools were closed. Children and the elderly fell sick as they were more susceptible to bad atmosphere. Venturing out of the house was a chore in itself. Everyone feared for their…

EPL Review: Swansea vs. Arsenal

With 3 points on Saturday, Arsenal are proving themselves worthy Premier League title contenders this season. The club’s manager, Arsene Wenger, watched his men secure all 3 points from 3 brilliant goals scored by 3 different players in the second half against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium, while goalkeeper Petr Cech helped himself to yet…
