Food Review: Portofino, Bangsar.

It was a truly enchanting and delightful dinner that I had last night with my parents, my husband, and another friend. It was my dad’s birthday yesterday, so we decided to have the celebration at Portofino, an Italian restaurant located at a corner of a row of shophouses in Lucky Garden, Bangsar. Upon entering the…

The Last Kitten Rescue Update

Remember the little one that we plucked right off the middle of a busy residential road? The little kitten we rescued on Father’s Day? Yes, the very same. Just to be clear on what’s been going on, the little one has passed away. She has gone to join her Maker in cat heaven (and maybe…

No Oven, No Problem.

When my husband and I first moved into the condo that we bought together, we were torn between getting a microwave oven, an oven, and a toaster. Should we get a microwave oven so we could have our instant meals when we’re too lazy to cook? Or should we get a toaster so we could…

Thanks For Following Me!

Hi everyone, just a short and sweet post to say thank you for following me! I hope you have had a wonderful journey on my blog, reading posts that you (could possibly) have not read before. I hope you enjoyed yourselves. Is there anything you would like to see more of )or less of) next…

Be Green, Eat Clean.

Well, being green doesn’t mean you go vegan and leave the animals alone. My definition of being green was to include as much greens as possible into your meals. Like what I did for dinner last night. We often have rubbish meals on a daily basis; meals that aren’t balanced and don’t always contain the…

My Public Holiday Shenanigans.

Weekends and public holidays are meant for our overworked minds to sleep in and wake up later than we normally do on working days. Which was what my husband and I did on Wednesday, 22 June 2016. It was yet another public holiday for Malaysians. We have so many public holidays in our calendar that…

Book Review: The Mountain of Light.

I’ve often been a fan of historical fiction, but so far the titles I read under this genre were pretty gnarly and gruesome. Most of the books that I’ve read had all been based on the World War II and mainly involved either the Nazis or the Japanese. Both who were pretty sick when it…

A Cat Rescue Mission on Father’s Day.

Life always dishes out the most unplanned and unexpected events for you, and most of the time, there are no indications on what the events will be about. My husband and I woke up way past noon on Father’s Day. We just wanted something to eat before going to Digital Mall and then come straight…

The Adventures of Working Remotely.

If you’re anything like me, you will probably have the option and the flexibility to work at the office or remotely from home. Oh, and if you’re anything like me, you will find that working remotely isn’t all that it seems to be. Once upon a time, when I took on my first job, I…

My Heart Goes Out to the Orlando Victims.

A short post today, after reading all the reports and post-mortem articles on the Orlando shooting: My condolences to the victims of the shooting, and their families. I pray that they will find some calm and peace amidst the rocky waves of terror and fear. No human being should ever have to go through this….

Should Parents Bring Their Children to the Cinema?

This is something that’s been on my mind every time I watch a movie at the cinema. Caution is necessary —> it might get a little controversial. Depends on how you look at it, and whose side you’re on, I guess. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Now, here’s my topic for today: Should children…

Food Review: Epicuro Uptown.

Another weekend, another cafe. My husband and I decided to try a different one this time. We’ve been to a number of new cafes, we have a list of our favourite joints, but we still have many more to go to. So we chose Epicuro in Damansara Uptown (they happen to have another branch in…

What to Get for Dad.

Father’s Day is not very far away (oh look, I managed to rhyme that line) now. Have you guys thought of anything to get for your dads? Well, neither have I but it would seem that my dad (and my mum too, on her birthday and for Mother’s Day) has forbidden my sister and I…

Hardcover vs. Paperback.

So I’ve been wondering last night, after taking another look at my mini library, why I’ve never bought any hardcover books. Two shelves in my master bedroom were dedicated to a variety of titles and they were all in paperback format. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate hardcover books. I just find them a…

An Eco-Friendly Way to Pest Control.

More often than not, you will find yourself drawn to a tiny red dot on your skin. Regardless of where it is, whether it is on your leg or arm, that tiny red dot looks kind of angry. That’s because you’ve done nothing much but scratch and poke at it. But it’s itchy, you argue….

A D.I.Y. Project using Discarded Tiles.

What happens when you have a box of dusty, discarded wall or floor tiles in your home? Do you get rid of them? Or turn them into a D.I.Y. project? Precisely what I did. Some years back, my uncle noticed a pile of discarded items on the front yard outside my next-door neighbour’s home. Famous…

Writing and Beyond.

Hello readers, It has certainly been awhile since I’ve published something here. Well, let me put your minds at ease (though I’m sure you all have better things to do than to sit and stare at your laptops 24/7 and waiting to see a post go up). I was quite occupied with doing some research…

When Life Gives You Lemons…

A whole bunch of quotes exist where lemons are concerned. You have probably heard of some, like: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you lemons, ask for tequila and salt. When life gives you lemons, throw them back (really, really hard!) When life gives you lemons, keep them because hey, free…

Hello, June.

Wow, it’s June already? Time really flew by quickly. And what have I accomplished lately? To be honest, nothing much. Which makes me feel a little depressed too. Here’s what happened in my 2016 that I am still not happy about: I was jobless in January. I fell behind in my 2016 Reading Challenge on…
