The Perks of Staying with Your Parents.

Photo by Lisa Fotios from Pexels. Whenever my parents go for one of their round-the-world vacations, they usually get me or my sister to stay over and watch the house for them. House-sitting, you know. And unlike baby-sitting, at least I don’t have to mop up after a terrible meal session, change diapers or watch…

A Double Birthday Celebration at Kim Ga Nae.

So last night my husband and I had a double celebration dinner at Kim Ga Nae, a Korean barbecue restaurant in Damansara Uptown. The dinner celebrations were in conjunction with my dad’s belated birthday (the actual day was on 29 June) as well as my aunt’s (my mum’s sister). My sister and her male companion…

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…

Ushering in the New Year with Food and Friends.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already the new year, guys! It’s January 1, 2017 today. How did you celebrate New Year’s Eve? With a display of fireworks in the sky? By popping the wine and champagne bottles? Getting drunk and teeter-tottering along the sidewalks, singing ‘Auld Lang Syne’? Regardless of how you celebrated the end…

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…

Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson: A Resort Like No Other Above the Sea.

Hello readers, I am finally back in reality after being AWOL or MIA on my blog for the past four days. I had been tucked away in a hidden cove in Port Dickson. My husband’s company had organized a weekend trip to Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson, a resort-styled sanctuary offering unparalleled superior surroundings with private…

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…

February 29. Once Every 4 Years.

Yesterday was Monday. Yesterday was February 29, 2016. Which meant that Monday was that one extra day given to February this year, and it was a leap year. For most of us, so what? But for the minority of those who were born on February 29, it is a big deal to them because they…

New Year, New Me… Really?

Is it just me or is everyone still nursing a Christmas hangover? Because it looks as though the New Year’s Eve celebrations are about to kick off but it seems as though everyone’s still in a Christmas mood. Christmas doesn’t feel like it’s ready to leave yet, with some people still exchanging belated presents and…

Happy National Cat Day!

The only downside to celebrating these National and International Something or Other Days is that Malaysia is always a day ahead of the United States, so whatever National or International Celebrated Day will always and only be known about the following day. The only way to overcome this is to constantly check the calendar on…
