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…

Tune In To Your Audiobooks This June!

Some of you may already know this but I most certainly didn’t! Did you guys know that June 2017 is Audiobook Month? I didn’t even if I happen to have the complete works of Dale Carnegie in audio format. I just haven’t found the motivation to listen to him tell his story because audiobooks aren’t…

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…

There is a Time for Teetotallers Like Me.

10 months ago on August 4, 2016, I joined the company I’m currently at today in a bid to escape the humdrum of unemployment. Last year (2016), I was out of a job (and out of sorts!) for 5 months! 5 months is a long time for someone who graduated with a degree, is well-read…

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…

Four Birthdays at Portofino and a Crying Child.

Seriously, what are the odds of celebrating your birthday on the same day at the same place with three other people? With mine, there were FOUR people celebrating their special days that same night! Last Friday, December 2, had been the first significant turning point of my life. Many of my friends had already turned thirty…
