Today is Paul’s birthday, and I couldn’t think of a better post to write than this one! I do not drink a lot of alcohol, because I don’t like how it makes me feel, but every now and then I do enjoy drinking a special beer. My first introduction to craft beer was in 2014. … Continue reading It’s my round!
The last couple of months have been very chaotic on different fronts. This doesn’t really help with writing. Sometimes I sit down, ready to write, but end up staring at my screen and nothing comes out. It’s not that I do not want to write anything, but I just can’t think of it. Stress or … Continue reading Writer’s block
You probably know those days, weeks or even months where everything seems to go wrong. Well, we are experiencing those months right now and let me tell you, I have learned a lot!

A short post today, because friendship for me is very simple. What I’ve learned about friendship is that not all of them will last and that’s okay.

I expected Paul to struggle a bit more (he really loves bacon and fish), but he is also doing very well. I … Continue reading My journey on becoming a vegetarian – Part 2
A negative mindset is often a build up of things. Maybe a bad situation you are in, things that bother you but that are not talked about, or things you are annoyed by. How can you keep a positive attitude towards things when sometimes it feels as if there is nothing to be positive about? … Continue reading A positive mindset
A smile can say a thousand words! I always loved to smile, but I noticed that the last couple of years I started to ‘pose’ my smiles. On almost every picture I took in the last 2 - 3 years, I have the same posed smile. As almost every person, I have my insecurities, but … Continue reading A beautiful smile
The first time that I went to Malaysia was in 2009 and I fell in love with the country! I loved the people, nature, and the food, although back then I wasn’t very adventurous when it came to trying different foods. Luckily that changed as I got older, because if there’s one place in the … Continue reading Malaysia: Food heaven!
It’s funny how taste can change. As an adult I never really cared for cakes and sweets. I always preferred savory snacks (still do), but there is something about cupcakes that makes me feel happy inside. My obsession with cupcakes started a couple of years ago.
