OMG, it is summer. I have been neglecting this blog big time. I still intend writing posts but never seem to get around to actually doing it. Maybe this post will be the start of a flurry of activity. I really don’t have any excuses. It is just that I have been writing this blog for nearly 7 years and wonder whether anyone really cares whether I write a post or not. Are blogs still popular? I don’t even know that.
Another reason for my lack of activity is we haven’t been cooking many new things lately… but last week we did. We had two nice Asian-style salads in anticipation of summer. And this recipe, in particular, was very nice. It was so delightful, in fact, that I decided to made a grand effort and take a photo of it. Continue reading
This one, I think, is a Chinese Wisteria, Wisteria Sinensis

We have tried a few new recipes and I have even snapped photos of them but, to be honest, they weren’t stand outs so I didn’t bother preparing a post. Continue reading
I know it has been a long time but my life hasn’t been that exciting of late. My cooking, in particular, has left a lot to be desired. Oh, well, at least, I have been making soap. Continue reading
We are back from our wee holiday and I am sad to say I am going to bore you all with some holiday shots. I have hundreds of photos but I will spare you. I know other people’s holiday shots are no where near as interesting to others as they are to those who took them. Continue reading
Hello, everyone. Not only did I trick you, I tricked myself. I thought I wouldn’t have time to prepare this post before we went on our holiday but, as it turns out, the day before we left was wet and I was stuck in a small flat. Anyone who knows me would know that is cabin fever material, so I decided to prepare this post. Continue reading
