The food we were told was mediocre. And this was wrong. I enjoyed all the three meals we had. Consistently good. Service was good too. ( The last wedding dinner my parents attended here ....was slow so I'm guessing they've picked up their pace a whole lot since) The place was packed on a weekday. And I met my old chemistry teacher and his wife there.

Here are my bags travelling back to KL with me. I was more disciplined this time around ...and practiced my scales and chromatics and pieces almost every day. And you can just about make out the 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle we completed in less than 24 hours at the bottom left of this picture. Next scheduled break: Chinese New Year at the end of January 2014.

So secret recipe , if you're reading this, please maintain your standards.

She is Irish. She writes well. "This is how it ends" should be on everyone's bookshelf because it is good. It is a love story which is so touching you find yourself cheering the the couple on and towards the end you find yourself wishing hard for things to turn around.
This is a story about Addie and Bruno. How they met and fell in love. In the background is Hugh ( Addie's father who is easy to hate but MacMahon makes him vulnerable too so he's not a typical villain but a believable one) , Addie's sister Della, Della's husband Simon and Addie's dog Lola. The story starts at a nice pace and remains at that gentle cantle throughout making it a addictive read. The climax is at the end of the book and as you read the last sentence you can't help but want more from the author. For me, this is a sign of a very good book

In London she met Lord Tyron and as his fiancee she was brought to Buckingham palace and met Prince Charles. Dale was known a a vivacious lively young lady. I imagine this captivated Prince Charles and they became and remain close for many years.
During this period, Charles remained close to Camilla and some believe he shuttled between the two women. Both got married, Camilla to Andrew Parker Bowles and later Dale to Lord Tyron. I believe the tabloids made them out to be enemies both vying for Prince Charles' affection. Camilla made Prince Charles godfather to her son Tom Parker Bowles. Dale did the same thing and Charles became godfather to Charles Tyron.
There is a rather tragic ending to Dale Lady Tyron. She used the media and would slip little nuggets of information which made her unsafe to the royal family. In stark contrast, Camilla remain silent. Desperate to remain important, she later became rather erratic in her behavior and had a mysterious fall from an open window which left her crippled an wheel-chair bound.
Lord Tyron divorced her later and she eventually died from septicemia. She is survived by her 4 children. Prince Charles did not attend the funeral.
We headed to KLCC on Sunday. Not our usual destination and THIS is the reason just why we should shy away from this place. It was swarming with people. We sat outside to enjoy the water fountain. ( SO did most other people) The weather was nice….just mildly warm and there was a slight breeze

Oddly enough, I have a plan to do a spot of cross stitch this Christmas break. I bought the set in Jakarta and it's small ( yay) and looks easy enough to finish in a week if I sew diligently through the day. Other great plan is to paint….and I hope that works too. Oh yes and in between all that, I promise I would practice my scales and arpeggios on a daily basis with EVERY note at the correct pitch. Now that's a lot of work to do!

It rained this evening. One of those slow drizzle which crescendos into a bigger rain intermittently. I had a hair trim and parked the car in a open space only to realize I have no umbrella in the car. And so I arrived at the hairdressers with big spots of rain drop marks on my baju. I weaved in and out of the rain but it was determined to get the better of me. And after the hair trim…it continued raining.
I shouldn't complain. I believe the rain in KL has reached its peak a few weeks back. I hope the flash floods are a thing of the past. The school holidays has also helped the traffic. Despite the rain this evening, the traffic moved at a decent pace and I got through town in a decent time.

One best answer ( otherwise known as OBAS) are easier to answer and much harder to create. A creation of one may well induce a mild headache and a sense of frustration when you reread it only to reject it yourself.
I'm a little behind this year. (Boohoo)
Priced at RM35. Some might say it's pricey. But when you open the box there ail definitely be some oOs and Aaas. Worth the money spent.

Just got my Advent Calendar!!!! #xmas #festive #chocolate #advent #late #cadbury #calendar #adventcalendar #santa #december #feelingchristmas #jolly #christmas, originally uploaded by PayalC.
I've succumbed to temptation and since last week I've my own advent calendar hanging. The last time I had it was in university where I would pop a choc in the mouth just before leaving for lectures. Brings back memories.
Advent is a season of preparation as we await the birth of Christ. It marks the new year in the Christian calendar. And more importantly ,it should be not only about preparation of the home and tree and cookies but the preparation of our souls to receive Christ.
"Joy to the world, the Lord is come "
( I'm going to pop a chocolate in the mouth before leaving for work)
Jo Malone is owned by Estee Lauder companies. I think we're more familiar with that name. Jo Malone started mixing fragrances at the age of 15. She left school then to look after her mum who had a stroke and her 10 year old sister.
Jo Malone is also a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in 2003 and underwent double mastectomy. And as a child had to overcome dyslexia.
She parted ways with "Jo Malone" the company after initially staying back after the acquisition to be creative director. After leaving, there was a clause to state that she couldn't produce any new fragrance for 5 years. This was up in 2011, and Jo Malone has launched her new on-line business Jo Loves.

The weekend was spent at the Academy of Medicine which is just off Jalan Pahang. It's a new-ish building with a lot of parking spots in front of it. This is unique for any building in the city centre.
A group of us were roped in for some work for a workshop and this is the desk as we left it for tea break. Quite a mess yes?
