A Lookback at 2011

Overall, 2011 has been a 140% better (see what I did there) than 2010 and I'm very thankful for that. In fact, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. Sure, I started the year unsure and almost afraid of what's to come after a very bad year in 2010. The first few months were a bit of a struggle Read more [...]

Ice Cream Making Class at Tom’s Palette

A group of us went for an ice cream making class two weekends ago at Tom's Palette. It is actually surprisingly easy to make ice cream by hand - without any ice cream maker thingamajigs.

The staff offered bright sincere smiles and the Read more [...]

Flying with Jetstar Airlines

It is a big deal because I never thought I'd actually have to ever take a budget flight. You see, I'm a self-proclaimed Read more [...]
