More Reading.....

Note to my Valued Readers:
I have been experiencing server/internet problems for the past couple of weeks resulting in me being unable to reply to comments here at my blog and me also not being able to leave comments at all the blogs I visit!!! ;(((  So its the server and not me being anti-social! ;)  Being able to post here is heaven sent!

Sonia: Thanks for visiting here ever so often and Happy Belated Birthday Gurl!  I can only see the picture of your birthday cake decorated so well with the macarons!  But alas cannot see the picture of you with the cake ;(((  Will visit all your postings when the server is up again!

Sharon: Aiseh! no worries about the book.  Not working till end of May 2010 so plenty of time to meet up yet! Not sure about Bookexcess on Friday but most likely to be there on Sunday!

Javapot:  The last product I ever used to 'wash' my vegs and fruits was something that was Aussie made and from bee pollen.  and it was really expensive for way back then like two decades ago?  RM30++ for a bottle!  I normally soak my washed and picked vegs in filtered water with a sprinkle of salt!  So far I only use the new product for dish washing!

Pauline: Re tiffin container.  The outlet is a 2nd hand product outlet and the piece was the only piece available! It was a promotional piece as it has 'Guiness' and 'made in India' embossed at the bottom! I have seen similar containers going for RM11.00 (cheapest) at some Chinese shops selling crockery and flatware. 

Below:  Started this book today and I must say its quite entertaining!  The story is about Kyle MacDonald, who until recently was 'between jobs', sick of sponging off others, and on the verge of being dumped by his girlfriend.  He had to do something to get out of that rut.  It was then that he remembered a childhood game 'Bigger and Better', a way of trading old stuff to get bigger and better new stuff.  And then he saw it, a red paperclip holding the pages of his CV together, ready to go out into the world and help him find a job.  He decided that he would start with that.  And promised to visit whoever would trade with him, wherever they were, swapping each time for something bigger and better until maybe - just maybe - till he got a house! And so with a small piece of stationery he began his great big adventure!!
Above: as you can see, I am totally enjoying my non-working life! a good book, coffee, cable tv and pineapple tarts!

Above &Below: Wantan noodle curry laksa and red bean with orange peel tong sui from my favorite stall in Taman Maluri!
Above and Below: DH had completed his radiationtherapy and on the way to recovery, from the radiationtherapy that is! Everything else is still too early to say.  Progressed from blended food to solids!

Sounds like a comfortable and fulfilling life to me! So good to know that DH is recovering. I will pray for his continued and speedy recovery!

Thank you also for your generous gift to me. What a surprise it was for me to come in to the SPCA and be informed that you had dropped by with cakes and an angpow! I am very touched and grateful. I'm putting the angpow to good use buying treats for the dogs and cats to make it easier for me to give them baths and medical treatment. The animals thank you too.

Take care and have a great week!
