2013 was the year of firsts.

My daughter's first solo dance at a school performance.  

My son's first preschool experience. 

A new role at work. 

A new home project. 

And the first year for my blog. 

So thank you for encouraging me to keep blogging and for a great first year. This blog has had over 20,000 views, or around 50 visits a day - and for me - that's a big deal. 

Hoping 2014 proves to be a soaring source of happiness for you.

And that is precisely what she did.

New to the fitness scene, she set the bar high - figuratively and literally.

Wok Works

I am a sucker for easy delicious food. I was craving a rice dish recently and a quick look into my pantry and refrigerator told me I am can cook a serious meal.

This is the easiest dish I have in terms of its full flavor and tummy-capacity.

I Love My Car - I Hate the Dealer

I know it's been a while and I truly apologize.  I have one word to explain what's keeping me from my blog - life.

However, I don't want you to think I am giving up on my blog because I wouldn't.  I love it and love what it has become, and what it represents. 

Anyhow, I've been cooking up this blogpost in my mind for a while.  Specifically, since last August, when I bought my car.  The terrible experiences with the dealer in Bahrain are not subsiding and I thought I better vent off all my anger before I forget.

Let me start from the beginning.  And this is going to be a long post so please bear with me...
