We started the day with breakfast at our hotel which was satisfying and delicious – it was an “English breakfast” (eggs, […]

We have just arrived in beautiful Sri Lanka today* for a week’s holiday during Wee Scotch’s school break. In our 6+ years traveling from Dubai, I have never seen such long lines at the Dubai airport.

With the arrival of September this year, Scotch and I entered a new chapter of our lives – life as parents of a school kid!

The problem is, lately, I just don’t experience food as enthusiastically as I did before. It’s a terrible thing because I want to like love my food. But I just don’t. I now understand […]
