Sometimes it is easier to satisfy a craving. Because if you don't, you will turn into a very grumpy cookie monster. That was how we solved the "What shall we have for dinner?" question last night. I had a culinary itch to satisfy. I wanted appetizers for dinner. If my husband can have breakfast for … Continue reading Food Review: Betty’s Midwest Kitchen.
There are days when you know what to have for dinner. But there are days when you don't. Before you start writhing on the floor out of hunger and desperation, what I would do (and suggest you could do the same) is go to the nearest shopping mall, because it is a place where all … Continue reading Food Review: Nyonya Colors.
Two days ago, I attended an interview with an agency for an executive role. The interview would have gone well if it wasn't for the interviewer's persistent intrusion into my private life. The interviewer did not just ask about my experience, previous, and current work employment; the person even claimed it was to the "best … Continue reading Preparation is Key.
Tell me, regardless of where you live, how often do you really and honestly mingle with your neighbours? I'm not talking about an early-morning nod-and-wave when you go out to the front porch to pick up the day's newspaper. I'm talking about good and proper conversations, including the exchanging of names and contact numbers. No? … Continue reading Emergencies Bring Communities Together.
It was a rainy day that drove us into the open arms of the Strangers at 47. A torrential downpour that left us stranded at a row of shophouses, restaurants, and cafes, with our car parked a little too far to reach if we walked in the rain. And so, we found ourselves at the … Continue reading Food Review: Strangers at 47.
Good news always calls for a celebration, and with it comes a reason to splurge and enjoy. I gave my husband a wonderful dinner treat at Rakuzen last night, a somewhat expensive and high class Japanese restaurant in Oasis Square, Ara Damansara. Because he had finally secured a new and much better job (the office … Continue reading Sushi, Sashimi, and Me.
A situation occurred a couple of days ago which prompted me to think about how times have changed, and how the generation today is so different from that of our parents and grandparents. One day, I had gone to work without realising that my laptop cable wasn't in my laptop bag. I had fired up … Continue reading You Have to Disconnect to Reconnect.
Just a short post today, detailing our joyride within Petaling Jaya last night after dinner. For my husband and I, it is a daily challenge to head back home after office hours because both main highways that we take to go home are always clogged with cars. It would take us hours before we would … Continue reading A Joyride in the City.
We never thought that we would actually adopt a cat one day. A friend had rescued him as a stray, had two existing ones of her own, and decided to find an owner for him. When we saw him as a kitten, we fell in love with him and decided to adopt him. I've never … Continue reading Reasons Why We Own A Cat.
Ever since my retrenchment on January 15, 2016, I haven't been lucky enough in being re-employed and joining the rest of the corporate world. I sat for two and a half months at home, blogging daily, drinking tea, playing with my cat, gaming, and reading my books. I must admit, that wasn't exactly the kind … Continue reading Don’t Let Your Dreams Die On You.
. Today, I'd like to introduce the newest addition to my family --- the Samsung NX Mini. Giving Up At some point in my life, I gave up photography after enduring a rough few years trying to break into the scene. I stupidly did a service for a potential client, only to have the client … Continue reading Tech Spec: Samsung NX Mini.
It was another one of those days when a new cafe sprouts like a wild mushroom in the middle of Klang Valley, which is already over-populated with many new and existing hip and independent cafes. Well, this cafe had already been opened for awhile now until a friend told me about its existence. Sudo Brew … Continue reading Food Review: Sudo Brew.
