Breakfast is my favourite meal

Cheerful persimmons from New Zealand

Ham & Cheese in Korean pancake mix... served with fresh kimchi and garlic chili sauce. We tried to be inventive with the combinations ;-)

未係端五節, 但我地吃粽先


<-- 阿媽又話狗狗牠很聰明,這麼多地方都不去,選擇在廟裡定居。清靜環境裡可睡得好。大事大節時亦可吃得好。人人好像叫牠做「旺旺」...

Let it go

We are all flawed beings... 別固執到問一切為何

Mark Haddon: A Spot Of Bother

I got this book January 2008 at discounted price and to be honest, I didn't expect much excitement as compared to his previous book. It was in fact rather flat in the beginning. I even rested it for a couple of months before picking it up again. Nevertheless, the plot got 'bloody' amusing as George (the main retired man) got out of control with his life and he attempted to remove a lesion on his hip by himself! At the same time, other characters (Jean, the wife, who was having an affair and was thinking about leaving George; Katie, the daughter, who was getting married to a man whom she was unsure of loving; and Jamie, the son, who was struggling with being an out gay man and getting committed with his lover) learned to look deeper into their chaotic family and started to rebuild closer ties among themselves.

I do agree with
Independent on Sunday's comment– "A witty and subtle family drama." The beautiful cover art was created by
Marc Boutavant (illustration) & Tim Marrs (illustrated type).

Until we meet again

My late father was born on this day. He had a carefree, adventurous spirit which I find inspiring as I age. I always feel this is what my mum needs sometimes to balance herself up a little. May good health be with her.
