So, what do I … Continue reading Easy peasy and cheap!
All my life, I have never been a dessert person but as I grow older, I have an appreciation for them. Perhaps my taste buds have changed. I enjoy them more now than ever. Having said that, as a kid there were a couple of desserts that I liked a lot. Both of them are kind of bold, colorful and loud. Kinda like me! One … Continue reading Bold, colorful and loud!

When I used to live in Kuala Lumpur, I would frequent my favorite coffee joint every morning so I can have a large cup of Americano and a TEC. Well, that’s what they call it there! It’s actually a Turkey, Egg and Cheese Croissant. Since I was kind of missing it yesterday and thinking thin is the current goal, I made something similar but different … Continue reading Similar but Different!
