My Fuss-Free Vacation to Malacca.

They say travelling broadens the mind, nourishes the soul and heightens the senses. They also said that travelling can reduce stress because it is something we enjoy doing and an activity that doesn’t kill us like our jobs do. Except that it does drain your bank account if you don’t plan carefully. The whole of…

Killing Me Softly with Soft Serve Ice Cream.

When I think of soft serve, immediately McDonald’s comes to mind. Chocolate and plain vanilla. Were they the first to serve this? There are many independent start-ups and hipster cafes these days selling soft serve ice cream and touting them to be the best. But these delectable dairy treats cost a limb (at least RM10.00…

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?

Little Bites of Delight.

It is probably not wise to have dessert for dinner but I wasn’t in the right mindset to make a decision. Because I wasn’t hungry when dinnertime arrived and I wasn’t about to rain unnecessary blows on my bowels. I’ve suffered from bloating and tummy discomfort before, especially when I’m not hungry but I’d eat…

Of Coffee and Macarons.

When I think of relaxing with a cup of coffee and my book, I always ask myself, “Where should I go to have my daily cuppa and maybe something to nibble on while reading my book?” That question never fails to escape my thoughts before planning my day. Sadly, not many cafe joints here can…
