Honouring the Women in Our Lives.

This isn’t my first time celebrating Mother’s Day yet, I got the dates mixed up. I thought it was the first weekend of May and we went out for dinner to commemorate the day. It turned out to be the second weekend of May! Oh well. At least we celebrated it early and didn’t have…

Of Easter and Christ on April Sunday.

Hi folks, it’s Easter today. I hope I’m not too late to wish you guys a Happy Easter Sunday! Is everyone sweating it out in Cadbury’s Easter Egg Chocolate Hunt? Or better yet, your own Easter egg chocolate hunt in your very own backyard? Perhaps you’re participating in your neighbourhood church’s Easter Sunday mass. Whatever…

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

So it was Christmas for us yesterday (it’s Boxing Day today for Malaysians as I write this blog post). I would have loved to update my blog much earlier but I was busy preparing my R&R for the long Christmas weekend. I wanted to make sure that I had enough time to do all the…

Drive with Your Eyes on the Road.

The time has come for the children to get up to mischief again and start monkeying around, and with reason too! As Chinese New Year falls on Monday and Tuesday, Malaysians are looking forward to yet another long weekend. Unfortunately, long weekends mean that many will be on the road either for a long weekend…

The 10 Types of Christmasses.

Here’s a running joke that often finds itself on the pages of social media: Q: What do you normally get on Christmas? A: Fat. I get fat on Christmas, or pregnant with food babies. Hello, everyone! Sorry about the absence of posting for the last two days but while I don’t celebrate Christmas, my family…

All I Want For Christmas…

I don’t know what I want for Christmas. I don’t know what I don’t have at home to want people to buy it for me. I’m not much of a shopper, and I don’t really give off vibes that I need something and therefore, someone should buy it for me. Actually, I’m not a Christmas…

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…

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…

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…

Mid-Autumn Lights.

It’s that time of the year again… No, not the haze. That’s actually a rather depressing topic to talk about. I’m referring to that time of the year where people eat mooncakes and make paper lanterns to light up and float them around. For the children, it really is for the fun of it. But…
