Month: August 2011

WE LIKE IT HERE!

30 August 2011, Tuesday.  We left our place in Butterworth at around half hour past 6 in the morning to catch our flight scheduled at 12 noon. It’s a holiday that I planned several  months ago, when days were less troubled and airfares were sold at discounted rates. Time check: 1:30AM, I have to doze off now. In a few hours, we shall…

DURING OUR TRYING TIMES…

PRAYERS are all we can offer against all trials that our family has been experiencing. Unbelievably, things have been emotionally, physically and financially draining but it is only through prayers that we gain strength and could keep our sanity intact amidst things that are happening beyond our understanding. Just last Saturday, I was informed that…

IT’S ALL ABOUT FAMILY.FOOD.FUN!

PROLOGUE : A lot of people perceive this site as an entirely food blog or a foodie’s virtual home. I cannot blame them, photos of food are apparently present in most, if not all of my posts. Although I really don’t mind to be tagged as a food blogger or a  foodie, allow me to remind everyone…

FROM BULLETIN BOARD DISPLAYS & POSTER MAKING CONTESTS….

….to appreciating paintings, furnitures, sculptures, photography and any forms with art, I know I have my own eyes. A month ago, during the celebration of George Town Festival here in Penang in one of the premier hotels here, I chanced upon an exhibit of glass sculptures of a local artist whose name I failed to note,…

HOT POT. CHINESE FONDUE. SHABU-SHABU. STEAMBOAT!

If gastronomic indulgence is a sin, then my family and I are always guilty as charged, hahaha! Apparently, gluttony is one of the deadliest sins, but gastronomic indulgence isn’t. I believe when you only try to please your palates with a digestive feast without eating excessively, you are just being a foodie. Enough with the defenses. Great…

On our second day in Hat Yai, Thailand, my family and I started the day by eating a hearty breakfast (for us but not theoretically & practically for the heart) at the Food Loft of New Seasons Hotel. The morning meals were inclusive of the 3D2N accomodation package we availed. Guests were provided a set menu…

NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

I’m going through trying times the past week and although regret and putting blame on me may be useless at this moment, I’m still taking all the charges. Lessons are definitely learned the hard way. On top of a private issue concerning me and my parents, our almost 7-year-old son, Gabby has been having loose watery stools and occasional vomiting…
