I am inspired to highlight this recipe again as I made a batch for a vegan friend & got a thumbs up from him! Of course, I ate more than my fair share in the process so it’s safe to say it’s still one of my favourites! Continue reading “Revisiting the Best (Vegan) Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!”
I love running through city streets! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good trail as much as anyone else, but a couple of years ago when I was fortunate enough to be in London for a couple of months, I discovered that I really love exploring bits of the city by running through it.

Loving Husband has always perplexed me with his insistence that we have the correct sporting equipment. When we started playing tennis as a young courting couple, he insisted that I buy a pair of tennis shoe and a new tennis racket even though I wasn’t very good.

I love smoothies & milkshakes & bubble tea & just about any beverage you can drink through a straw. I have never had a smoothie bowl before though, that is, using a smoothie as a base and then piling lots of goodies on top. So, this is a conservative first attempt at The Smoothie Bowl.

Some folks have lofty aspirations to climb big mountains, real mountains. I take my hat off to those who are brave & fit enough to attempt running Mt Kinabalu in Malaysia, the MacLehose Trail in Hong Kong, or Ben Nevis in Scotland.
I have my own list of heights to conquer. These are certainly not mountains, and not even really hills. They are my personal mountains, my list of up-slopes I want to run up instead of walk up. Going uphill is difficult for me – I have been told that my problem is mental more than physical. So, this list is also my training plan & motivator, challenges to overcome.

I’ve never had sweet potato in cake before. So, when I found myself with 1.6kg of sweet potato to use up, I searched through my recipes for something we could make. I found a gem in one of my favourite cupcake resources: Cupcakes with Attitude. Continue reading “Sweet Potato Cupcakes: an unexpected deliciousness!”
Younger Daughter & Loving Husband really enjoyed swimming pool at The Haven on this previous holiday to Ipoh. They were in the pool/jacuzzi religiously twice a day, every day we were there.
I adore outdoor art!
Some 10 years ago after visiting the Hakone Open Air Museum, I decided my favourite sort of art would be found outdoors. Don’t get me wrong, I would jump at the opportunity to revisit the National Gallery in London or the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, but there is just something about a sculpture garden, or a tromp l’oeil, or a mural. Continue reading “Murals in Ipoh”
I love breakfast!
Never thought I’d hear myself saying this as I really am not a morning person. I still can’t eat first thing when I wake up, but a couple of hours later, I really enjoy this first meal of the day. And breakfast foods, I could eat them all day long: pancakes, oatmeal, omelettes, French toast … what am I saying, I do eat breakfast foods for lunch, and sometimes, even for dinner!
