Flo and I being awesome friends decided to crash Alex's birthday dinner on Monday. Of course, Amanda knew that we would be gracing their otherwise romantic dinner for two at Osaka Kitchen where Alex was keen to try their Teppanyaki Omakase set - the Okonomiyaki course in particular. I was anxious already since the night … Continue reading Facing Food Fears.
Today meaning Monday, 25 April, is Alex's birthday so Happy Birthday Alex Cadby!! His birthday being on a weekday meant that we took the opportunity to celebrate it yesterday instead. Apparently, in some parts of Europe (Germany *cough cough*), celebrating or wishing a person a happy birthday before their birthday is considered to be taboo. … Continue reading Tasting the Tropics.
I've been seeing Dr. A quite regularly now, about once a week pretty much. I assume that once I start to put the tools she is equipping me with to practical use in my every day life, and my ED thoughts lessen, I will be able to see her less frequently. My most recent session with … Continue reading Taking Control.
Flo's friend Chris just left to Phuket yesterday after spending 5 days with us from Germany. Flo's leaving tonight to join him for a long weekend break so I'll be all by my lonesome the next few days. It's been a busy week so far with baking and meetings and health-checks, and later this afternoon, … Continue reading Chicken Tonight.
It's been a few years since I started seeing Dr. C, my gynaecologist. I know that most women wait until they are 30 while others wait until they fall pregnant before they see a gynae. I didn't wait for either namely because I wanted to know whether I would be able to conceive because I … Continue reading The Annual Smear.
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,” John 11:25 It's obviously not Easter Sunday anymore but writing back on it, Easter Sunday is the day Jesus rose from the dead. The truth is, as much as I try to have … Continue reading YEaster Sunday.
The long weekend has just about come to a close, but more than that, it was a weekend of remembering the death of Christ, and His resurrection. Good Friday and Easter Sunday are reminders of how sinful we are as human beings, and still, by God's grace, we have been washed clean and given the … Continue reading T’was a Good Friday.
One thing about baking countless banana breads and banana cakes for various cafes as part of my livelihood is that I often find myself with extra bananas. As we all know, bananas ripen ever so quickly especially here in the tropics where the weather is warm all year round. This means that I either have … Continue reading Mi-So Bananas.
Remember the 'homework' I mentioned Dr. A giving to me to do after our first session? I returned it to her during my second appointment and Monday being our third, we went through my 'results'. Basically, the statements or questions I had to answer were tabulated to create mean scores relative to different schemas. Schemas, according … Continue reading Of Tom Yum & Schemas.
It's always love having Flo come home at the end of a long day to me. We don't always get time to do anything special on weekday evenings so when the weekend comes round, it's nice to be able to spend quality time together. On Saturday, after weeks of anticipation, the World Snack Fair finally came into … Continue reading Saturdate.
