This wasn't a recent bake TBH. In fact this was in November 2016; almost a year ago. 

My dinner date with my friends last Wednesday night reminded me to dig up my archive for these photos. We went to a coffee shop after our dinner; ordered some tea, coffee and some dess...

Hey, guys! Here's an entry on my gastronomic experience last weekend, which I almost missed! Eat The World Dubai -- "A street food festival like no other". 

Our company offered discounted tickets for employees, but I missed it; I completely forgot. S...

One of the things that has changed in me growing older is the love for breakfast. I used to not like the idea of waking up early to make and have breakfast and go to school or work. I used to skip it and that's partly why I've been having stomach problems since my earl...

I am quite new at growing succulents. It's only been two (2) years, and while I am beginning to feel confident about growing my little fat plants, I am still learning a lot. I don't even know their proper names yet. But I have been asked by friends how I take care of m...

This isn't the first time I've been to the Dubai Garden Centre, and it certainly won't be the last. My friends and I went there for the first time in 2015 when I got my first indoor plants, and I've been hooked ever since. I can think of a lot of reasons to keep going...

I just had the sudden craving for pudding and I found this recipe with a high rating of 4.7 (114 reviews). I also happen to have all the ingredients. This is, perhaps, the easiest dessert I've made by far. 

Here's Tyler Florence's Ultimate Chocolate Pudding recipe....

I find I use body oils a lot more during the colder months. It’s difficult and ineffective (at least for me) to use regular moisturizers and body butter/creams/lotions during winter; especially in the morning when it’s too cold. And they just don’t seem to work as well...

I have to admit, I spend a lot of time watching YouTube videos. I'm getting how and why creative YouTubers who come up with fresh, innovative content get a lot of money and loads of freebies from small business owners and big companies that sponsor or would like to be...

I shamelessly missed seasons 3 and 4 (2014 and 2015) of Dubai Miracle Garden, because I kept waiting for my friends to be available to go there with me. Unfortunately, something always came up and we never got to go. So this year, I thought I would take myself to...

I went to a Typo store for the first time in 2013 when I was in Melbourne. I instantly liked the Aussie store for its cute novelty items.

The store sells stationeries and cards in cute designs and colors, various gift items (perfect for the holidays or last-minute gift...

Rats! 2020 really threw a huge curve ball no one saw coming (except, of course, for the scientists and epidemiologists). 

Nothing much to share at this time. What's important now is we: 

   Stay home. 

   Wear a mask.

   Practice social distancing. 

   Stay safe. 

We will get to see the world soon, my dear friends.
