Where have all the flowers gone?

I’ve been like a caveman lately hunting around for good food and new places to eat. There are definitely far fewer places serving good food than ever these days. Parking spots are limited and portions are shrinking but prices are skyrocketing.

My patience is wearing thin as driving around in this heat only to find that an eatery that people are raving about is serving only mediocre food, by my standards. Where’s all the good food gone?

Definitely not meat

These have been weeks of hunting for good food. Been reading reviews trying to discern between which ones I should trust. Let’s just say another one bites the dust lol! I actually drove out to try two of the places she highly recommended and both times, the food was (how should I say this nicely) unpalatable, inedible, and I’m being kind. Not entirely her fault. One man’s meat is…. well, you get the picture.

Mr Musical

This lunar new year, my uncle invited 30 family members to his house. If you can believe it, he single-handedly cooked the entire dinner himself. As usual, it was an unforgettable spread of his best cooking. After dinner, he gathered everyone in the den, flipped a mini switch and started singing to his electric guitar. Just when we thought he’d tired himself out cooking for hours, he turns into Mr Musical and surprises us with his impersonation of Tom Jones.

Too pretty to eat

Tis the season of chocolates wrapped in silver and gold. I walk along aisles filled with seasonal chocolate gifts and I wish I could buy them all. Seriously, can anyone have too much chocolate? Those wrappings too get prettier every year, and some of them are absolutely irresistible. To be honest, some of them are too pretty to open. If only we could frame them up and hang them on the wall for a year.

The talented monkey

Did you know we’ve just entered the Year of the Monkey? As usual, the malls have been decorated to the nines for the occasion. For some strange reason, not many malls featured the monkey in their decor. But the ones who did, have been really creative. There was one with a giant monkey hanging from a tree. If you look and listen closely, you will notice the mechanical fingers of the cheeky monkey strumming a recording king guitar to the music. I must say that’s one talented monkey.
