What to Do with Friends Over the Weekend.

There are many ways to enjoy the weekend. You can read your book or start a new one. You can watch some movies or catch up with your drama series. Or you can finally do your spring cleaning with a hint of jazz. But the best part about it is that you’re now free to…

First World Reader Problems #1.

A bibliophile is defined as a “lover of books; one who loves to read, admire, and collect books.“ You can find many book lovers and avid readers on Tumblr who constantly share their readership and kinship with their books with you through their pages. I, for one, am like them, and I share the same…

Mmm… French Toast…

What happens when you run out of breakfast ideas? You’ve had pancakes. You’ve gobbled down all the ham sandwiches. You’ve even gone as far as to having various toppings on your oatmeal for the last three days! The last thing you want is more oatmeal. After doing a quick comb-over of your kitchen, you realised…

What Happens When Your Throat Hurts.

Imagine that you’re at a dinner buffet, your eyes darting left and right, observing the entire delicious and beautiful spread right before you. Should you shuck some oysters first? Or maybe you should start small with a garden salad. No wait, there’s sushi and sashimi. You’ve been dying for some Japanese since, like, forever! You…

Don’t Lose Sleep Over It.

How many times have we welcomed the weekend only to come back to work on Monday feeling like we still needed more hours to unwind? Do you often feel that way? That you were so hyped up on Friday, and going over your plans with your friends to paint the town red. Only to realise…

Emotions at the Mere Touch of Decor.

Hello everybody, aren’t you glad it’s Friday already? Yes, I tend to make my lines rhyme sometimes. And it actually sounds nicer too. Not to mention, a little poetic as well. Since it’s already the end of yet another harrowing and busy work week, here’s a little something to read that is easy on the…

Food Review: Madame Waffle.

Let’s call this e-pressure. Short for internet pressure. Because I’ve seen so many photos and reviews uploaded by people on their Instagram feeds and their blogs that made it all the more tempting to try out. And I finally did last night. Madame Waffle is its name, and Belgian waffles meeting Japanese flavours is its…

Spring Cleaning, One Box at a Time.

In view of yesterday’s post and all the previous articles I have ever written on minimalism and de-cluttering, I decided to go on a de-cluttering spree myself. The condo that I share with my husband was not just a home but also a storage for all sorts of items that we no longer use or…

Adopting a Minimalist Lifestyle.

Let me ask you a question: Would you be able to live in a home like the one above? No, really. Would you? Or will you think that your home is so threadbare that you need to fill it up with all the knick knacks that your family and friends have bought for you over…

My Weekend Review #1.

Here’s a roundup of how my Saturday went: Finally did my first spider plant propagation on Saturday morning. 😎😎 I snagged a bunch of spider plant blades plus the roots from the existing pot, and secured it with potting mix. It was a back-breaking and ankle-busting chore as I had to squat most of the time…

A Little Dessert Will Go A Long Way.

People tend to think of the correlation between health and desserts as being negative. That desserts can be destructive to your health and diet. Come to think of it, perhaps only our parents would think and say that, right? We were all brought up with the idea that desserts are bad for you. Too much…

Definitely #firstworldproblems.

The arrival of new smartphone models and the creation of new mobile phone gaming applications are things we cannot avoid. It happens everyday, no matter where we go, whether we like it or want to be involved or not. You can bluff yourself and say that you’re not interested. You can tell the world that…

Building a Mini Balcony Garden.

When I bought my first condo with my husband, we were given a unit that had already been lived in by two previous owners. That made us the third owner-generation of the place. When we finally moved in, the place was filthy. Dust bunnies and dust mites had parties all over the condo unit, in…

EPL Review: Leicester City Makes History after 132-Year Wait

A short blog post and update on the current English Premier League that is about to end very soon. Only one match left,and then it’ll be a long break before the entire transfer window saga starts again. The curtains for the 2015-2016 English Premier League is slowly being drawn now, with most clubs playing their…

Food Review: Me (Mee) and My Laksa.

Our weekends are normally saturated with lots of sleep. So it is quite common for us to wake up at almost noon, practically in time for lunch. The problem with that is we would miss out on having a proper meal at lunch time and we would end up eating junk instead. Thankfully, there are…

Money Matters on the Millennial Front.

The stuff of nightmares brought forth during our childhood years were often intensified by Hollywood movies, from clowns to witches and ghouls. If you’re a fan of Japanese horror movies, you will be plagued by many sleepless nights. But the stuff of nightmares that we, millennials, face are more frightening than a sheet of white…

Food Review: Second Sunday.

Thus begins our gastronomic journey to yet another cafe. I’m going to blame this on long working hours as I only left the office last night at 8:30pm. By the time we got out of traffic, most decent restaurants have delivered their last orders and were not going to stay open for long. So we…

It’s A Millennial Madness Out There.

I’m pretty sure everyone is familiar with the scene above. Rife in the corporate world with millennials hoping to secure a job that would actually allow them to sit outside somewhere besides the office and get work done. But I’m sure you are also aware that it is not possible. This post is based on…

Food Review: Flingstones Cafe.

A three-day weekend is normally a time for me to go on a road trip or get busy with finding new cafes to visit. Or, it could just be a time for me to relax at home, gaming or reading. Sadly, I spent my long weekend hibernating because I had a mild fever. Mild yes,…

Movie Review: Captain America – Civil War.

I know the poster says that May 6 is the official release date for the movie, somehow, it is already out here in Malaysia, and I saw it last night. Also, since many of you may not have seen it yet, I won’t be leaving spoilers in my review. I just want to say how…
