Just over 20 years ago, my family and I were living in Bangkok. Dad was posted there by his company and boy! We loved it there. The amazing food, the lovely people, the crawling traffic... Ok maybe not so much the crawling traffic. What I loved most was schooling there. Kor and I attended an … Continue reading Half the world away and back.
Following my back-to-basics Blondie Recipe, I decided that I wanted to make a basic paleo blondie recipe so that I can always have a recipe to run to whenever I want something quick, simple and indulgent, but one that would leave me feeling good about myself, especially after a heavy meal, or a few days … Continue reading Ultimate Paleo Blondies. No. Really!
Just this Thursday past, I turned 30. I remember hitting twenty and laughing with my friends about how we were 10 years to thirty. And now, here I am. Here we are. 30. I remember my 21st. Just before turning 21, I was diagnosed with Anorexia. I had my 21st birthday celebration the week after, … Continue reading Turning Thirty.

Cheesecake without cream cheese?! Cake without eggs?! I've said this before and I'll say it again, I've never quite believed in … Continue reading Vegan and RAWR!
So my last post one life before Flo was incredibly wordy so I'm making sure to put add lots of pictures into this one to make up for it! Prepare your eyes for a whole lot of Nat and Flo aka #rennetan so don't say I didn't warn you! Picking up where I left off, … Continue reading #howimetmyboyfriend.
BUT FIRST. Recently, littlesunbear sweetly requested that I share about how Flo and I met. It's not a story I am shy to share since it is, after all, our little story. But first, I thought it'd be best to give a bit of an introduction to how things were before I met Flo. Then … Continue reading #howimetmyboyfriend…
Since I had a recent request to blog about how I met Flo, I decided that a little booze before hand should lighten the mood and put us all at ease for an epic long post about our relationship which should turn up as my next blog post. I'll probably break it up into two … Continue reading Nothing Like A Little Booze.
A couple weeks back, before I made my solo getaway to Hong Kong, I shared in a random post about my first time trying a Poke Bowl from Aloha Poke even though I've blindly tried my hand at making one before. After finding all sorts of deliciousness in that bowl of greens, sushi brown rice, … Continue reading Alohaaaa.
