Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting. What if there were Guard Dogs?

While out on my daily walk this morning, thoughts about Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School came into my mind. Most of us would have heard, read or saw the news about the latest mass shooting in the USA (on 14 Feb 2018 - Valentine Day). Over here in Singapore / Johor, most people view it with detachment as USA is a far away land. Maybe, the mass shootings bothered me a bit more because I have family over there.

ESCAPE Penang Adventureplay & Waterplay. Take Back our Childhood


After eating lots of famous Penang food, we had plenty of calories to burn. Shopping doesn't help much as it is often combined with snacking 😂 Fortunately, Penang has many sports attractions that burn calories while having fun.  We spent an entire afternoon at ESCAPE and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

This is the garlicky peppery style of bak kut teh (literally meat bone tea) commonly sold in Singapore. This dish which is very popular with tourists, is relatively simple to replicate at home whether in China, Europe or North America as the ingredients are widely available in supermarkets.

Golden Carp of Trio Prosperity by Mad About Sucre. Birth of a Chinese New Year Tradition?


I was walking past MAD About SUCRE and just wanted to pop my head in to say hello to Eric and team, then pop out again. But, Eric wouldn't allow that and insisted that I sit down for tea and a cake.

Then, this golden carp caught my eye. It's MAD About SUCRE's newest Chinese New Year offering. "All sold out for this year" Eric told me 😮
