It's definitely a unique craving and you kind of have to have some mental preparation for what is about to appear in front of you. Here are some of the more common weird food combinations … Continue reading Would You Really Eat That?
Have you ever wondered what to pack for a 3-day vacation, only to realise that you have over-packed your bags despite planning early and ahead of time? Yeah, that happens to me quite frequently. Also, I don't travel often so each time I make a mistake, it would be the same mistake I'd make when it comes to packing … Continue reading What to Pack for a 3-Day Getaway.
When I saw this book on the fiction shelves in Borders, I knew I must have it. The cover was attractive enough, the back of the book told me enough to know roughly what the story would be about, and also because I've begun drinking tea (Lipton, to be exact) more so than coffee. Of … Continue reading Book Review: The Tea Planter’s Wife by Dinah Jefferies.
As it so happens, we do try not to go overboard with our cravings for culinary cafe cuisines, but it's hard to avoid them at all costs when they're everywhere! The operating hours of some cafes is the reason why we go to them in the first place. And we also have a tendency to eat when we feel … Continue reading Of Savoury Crepes and Matcha Desserts.
I'll say this frankly. I've never been much of a history buff. I do like a bit of history here and there, but an overloaded and overwhelming truck of historical information can drive me insane. Especially if the book contains more historical facts than fiction plots. Below is the synopsis for the book by Goodreads: … Continue reading Book Review: The Hornet’s Nest by Jimmy Carter.

Who else agrees with me on this? That no matter where we are, it will always feel like we have been transported to a new destination whenever we pick up a book to read. I feel that way all the time when I had my nose buried between the pages of a book. Carlos Ruiz Zafon … Continue reading The A-Z of a Book Lover’s Glossary.
"Raindrops keep falling on my head..." Who was the singer behind this song? As yes, B. J. Thomas... But the song wasn't for a rainy day, and neither did it mean that it was raining. It just felt quite appropriate for my post today. I also remember the nursery rhyme that I used to sing as … Continue reading What to Do on a Rainy Day.
Weekends have always been our favourite time of the week, especially if you have a busy work week and all you want to have is some downtime. Weekends are also our favourite time of the week to sleep in and wake up only in time for lunch. Most of the time, we miss the proper lunch … Continue reading Food for Thought: Managing Expectations.
Did you know that there are two types of olive oil, and each type has its own specific purpose? One is the regular olive oil, while the other is the extra-virgin olive oil. No, I didn't know either. Or, at least I knew the basic difference but until last night only did I realise that there … Continue reading Know the Difference: Olive Oil.
Do you know what piques your interest? Do you know what tickles your fancy? Do you know what catches your eye, and makes you go "Ooh!" and "Aah!"? For me, it's books.

There are at least 3 playgrounds within the immediate area of the condo where I live with my husband. Every morning when I join the rest of the corporate zombies on the clogged-up highway, I pass 2 out of the 3 playgrounds. When I return from work, I pass by the third playground. Yet, these playgrounds … Continue reading Play Store vs. Playground.
