Chowder the French Bulldog

This 3 year old french bulldog was up for adoption and meeting his potential new owners. He was a bundle of energy, so excited to be out and about that he was pulling and tugging his leash this way and that as he sniffed the grass, greeted other dogs and peed at the legs of […]

What your groceries say about you?

 My supermarket trips are often touch and go. I go in, grab the few necessary items I need, and I’m out. But the rare occasion where I can afford the time to loiter, I’d grab a trolley and make my way through the aisles, randomly grabbing stuff that I think I may need. While I […]

Small but definite differences

Bryan is confused as to whether I like eggs or not. He noticed that I left out the scrambled eggs fried together with my carrot cake so he assumed that I didn’t like eggs. 10 points for observation. So the next time he cracked an egg into his Maxwell Road chok (porridge), he didn’t crack […]

Oink, Pulled Pork Sandwich

We chanced upon this little gem on our climb up to Edinburgh Castle. Framed in pretty pink with an unassuming name Oink, it attracted a long line of hungry people that snaked out through the tiny shop and out onto the pavement. * we ventured closer to see what it’s about. It didn’t need much […]

Glenkinchie is a lowland single malt, one of the three remaining lowland distilleries left. Lowland whiskies are marked by their light, fruity and […]

Cats have scent glands along the tail, on each side of their head, on their lips, base of their tail, chin, near their sex organs, and between their front paws. They use these glands to scent mark their territory. When the cat rubs you, he is marking you with his scent, claiming you as “his.” […]

What are babies doing on my Facebook?

I’ve been noticing an alarming trend these days. Pictures of babies and children appearing on my Facebook news feed. To my knowledge, Facebook populates your news feed based on certain priorities: 1. important people of your life (those marked as partners or family) 2. people you marked as Close Friends 3. people whose Facebook posts […]

Iris, Edinburgh (Day 2)

Iris was truly a serendipitous find. We were walking along the river aimlessly wandering in and out of shops when I found a city map that plotted out sections of the new town. There was an area that promised hip restaurants and cafes so we wandered around looking for it. With my amazing sense of […]

Edinburgh Castle, Scotland (Day 1)

Truth be told, we went to so many castles in Scotland that after awhile they looked all the same, except for Stirling Castle where they spruced it up with furniture and characters walking throughout the estate. Edinburgh Castle was at one end of the Royal Mile, opposite the more popular Holyrood Castle. It is located […]
