Today in UK, we celebrated Mother’s Day. My daughters and I decided to prepare and serve the three meals of the day for my wife, so she could have the break she deserved from looking after her family. The plan was for my oldest daughter to prepare breakfast, my youngest to prepare lunch and I would prepare and cook dinner. I had also bought some special tequila to make her favourite cocktail – Margarita. Continue reading Mother’s Day

This Valentine’s day is fairly significant for my wife and I, as it is the 20th time we were celebrating this as husband and wife. Hence I took the day off so we could share the day together. And with Valentine’s day sandwiched between Pancake day and Chinese New Year’s eve, this week is certainly going to be a very busy week for us. Continue reading Valentine’s Day 2018

Happy New Year to all my readers. As I was working on New Year’s Day, I have not been able to post about the New Year’s eve dinner my wife had prepared for us. Now while she was preparing the meal, we also decided to have a gin and tonic tasting to compare the aromas and taste of 5 different gins – just to add some fun to the festivities.

Recently we were made aware of a quaint little cafe along St Clement’s Street in Oxford, called Rachel’s Cafe, as one of our neighbours bought us some moon cakes from there around the Mid-Autumn festival. Hence we decided that we would go visit there to get lunch and more moon cakes late last Saturday morning. Continue reading Rachel’s Cafe in Oxford

Recently when I went on my weekly grocery shopping, I went to the freezer section to buy my usual frozen blueberries and strawberries for my fruit-protein smoothie. While there, I noted that there were plenty of other fruits and vegetables available to purchase – clearly healthy eating and smoothies is big business, which is why there are so many options available. I noted that there were wheatgrass and acai berry pellets for making smoothies, and hence I bought these as well. The wheatgrass pellet pack costs more at £3.00 per 100g, while the acai berry pack costs £2.00 per 100g pack (same as the other fruit packs). Continue reading Wheatgrass and Acai berry Pellets

When I was walking down the aisle of Tesco supermarket browsing the spice section, I noted that they had packs of the Carolina Reaper chilli available for purchase. One of the things I do like to do is to buy things to try with my wife. And Carolina Reaper being one of the hottest chilli in the world (and in fact was the hottest chilli in the world a while ago), I felt it was worth a try. Continue reading Carolina Reaper Chilli
