Celebrating nine decades with granny

I have stumbled upon many quotes on life – many mesmerizing at the fact that life is too short to waste, musings of a beautiful life and reflections of how unexpected life’s journey can unfold. And I have recently pondered on thought of aging gracefully even as we celebrated my grandmother’s 90th birthday. What a […]

My prayer warrior turns 89!

My grandmother turned 89 on Monday thirtieth November two thousand and nine. We didn’t throw a big party inviting friends and family – it was just an intimate affair.

Our Christmas tree makes its debut

One of many things I love about Christmas is setting up the tree. There’s something warm, magical and fuzzy about it. With Christmas jazzies playing at the background, the entire room just evolves into a big sparkle! Perhaps it was the memories I grew up when setting up the Christmas tree. Either mom or dad […]

Our lil garden has grown!

Calamintha… hyrangea… calla lily…spiky cactus, our green thumbs has gotten the better of us. Now the porch has an array of natural beauties to greet us.  We had initially thought of transferring our sprouting brinjal plant into another pot, hence we needed more soil.

Discovery Rangers in the teeny little town called Taiping

I’d be the first to jump at an invitation to visit a zoo if I was traveling in another elsewhere. I’ve been to several in Aussie, one in Central Park, NYC and another in Singapore. Ironically, at the mention of Zoo Negara, I can’t help but cringe and pass on the offer. Sadly my past […]
