Summer 1983 was a season of firsts: it was the first time I visited the United States of America; the first time I had sour dough bread; the first time I visited the Magic Kingdom.

I was very much at a loss to name analog passions I engage in as I came to the realisation that I have embraced many things digital, and in fact, if not for technology, would find it difficult to enjoy many of these activities. Continue reading “Analog to Digital: yay or nay?”
Daughters & I enjoy going on Food Adventures.

This is the story of how I became Choosy Chia, a superhero who is able to clear huge mounds of salad in a single bound, to snarf a bowl of oatmeal in record time, and to eat around non-vegetarian dishes with grace & aplomb! Continue reading “Choosy Chia: a Superhero Origin Story”
