Wow. So it’s that time of the year again. I feel like I blinked and whoosh, another year has gone by. 2020 hasn’t exactly been a great year, what with the pandemic and all. Still, I’m grateful that my family and I have managed to weather it so far, despite the uncertainties and challenges – like the Hubs being stuck overseas. There were also some … Continue reading 2020 In Pictures

As much as possible, I try to use my own images on this blog, because a) it sucks when people steal my photos without even crediting where they got them from, and b) I want to avoid potential copyright infringement suits because you never know when you might get ‘unlucky’.

11. An Adventure In The Kitchen First things first: I am not much of a cook. When I was younger, my mother ruled the kitchen with an iron-fist, and would often shoo me out because I wasn’t cutting something right or wasn’t quick enough to take the pan off the heat, etc. Over the years, my interest waned, and while she did eventually try to … Continue reading 30-Day Writing Challenge – Day 11: An Adventure In The Kitchen
