Sketching for travellers: reasons to swap your smartphone for a pencil or paint - Lonely Planet July 27, 2016 at 10:52AM

I sketched the "Winged Victory of Samothrace" in the Louvre 2 years ago. Till today it leaves a profound and lasting impression (as opposed to photo-snapping) of its beauty in me :) Being a new mom had switched off that personal passion in me for one full year! As motherhood becomes less physically demanding these days, I wish to rediscover that part of me again. And hopefully in the near future, Abby and I will enjoy more art and craft together!

JOHN MALOTT, former US ambassador to Malaysia, opinion piece on what will happen next in the 1MDB saga July 24, 2016 at 09:33AM

"But how will the Malaysian people react? Will Najib get away with this, back in Malaysia? I fear that the answer is yes. If so, it means that Malaysia is now in Mugabe-Land." An enlightening essay that speculates outcome of the 1mdb scandal. But will Malaysians prove him wrong on the narrative above?

Sugar Butter Flour on Yelp July 15, 2016 at 08:32PM

Really delicious almond burnt cake. Custom cakes are too pricey. Dry and crappy cup cake is not worthy of $3.00 each.
