Penang Food

Clockwise from left: Chinese Fried Rice, Nasi Kandar, Roti Tissue
Nique and my sis are finally back in Penang for Chinese New Year celebration! - Yay! It's been a long-awaited arrival. Nique decided to have his first meal in Penang at Song River restaurant. We ordered a pot of flavourful Bak-kut-teh and a plate of tasty fried rice to satisfy Nique's craving for (a list of) local food. Next item to check off the list was the famous Nasi Kandar at Kayu. The following day, my sis requested to have Roti Tissue for breakfast upon her arrival, so we made a quick stop at Kayu again to fill her stomach.

Chocolate Indulgence

It was a perfect Saturday afternoon spending some time with loved ones and indulging on a piece of rich and moist chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice-cream. What a lovely (yet sinful) indulgence on a hot day!

What does it feel like today?

Sometimes picture paints a thousand words and it could be interpreted differently. This photo of the Orang Utan was taken at Taman Safari Indonesia Cisarua Bogor during a recent vacation in Indonesia. Doesn't it seem as if the Orang Utan is saying ...

- "Where are you people? I'm so bored...."
- "Stop bothering me, I'm feeling lazy today...."
- "ahh....I'm so tired after a long day at 'work'..."

Fruit Bruschetta

My attempt to make cute and delicate fruit bruschetta failed miserably but the only consolation was that it didn't taste as bad as its appearance. It was an easy-to-make snack and healthy finger food (ahh, I love finger food!) I like the hints of saltiness from the butter and cheese, sweetness from the succulent grapes, and a little sourness from the crispy green apples. The oven-toasted baguette slice gave a crunchy texture to complement the snack too!

Invisible Wings

Last Christmas night, my sister belted out her rendition of Invisible Wings by Angela Zhang in a karaoke session. I watched her sang in awe the very moment she began to sing. It was such a meaningful song sung so beautifully and I was completely immersed in it. Certainly a song that I hold close to my heart and it almost bring tears to my eyes.

Another year has come and gone yet again. All in all, despite some ups and downs in 2011, I thank God for a year of blessings. It was a great year - happy times and sad times, sweet memories to cherish and lessons to be learned. Hopefully 2012 is going to be an exciting year ahead. I look forward to usher the new year with new hope and new attitude. It will be a year of change - I shall put my trust in God and let the breath of the holy spirit blow me to where I will be. Happy New Year!
