The Grilled Cheese Diaries : Celery and Cheese


I cant believe that it took trying a really delicious Celery Cream and Cheese pasta at an Italian restaurant in Singapore to make me realize that Celery and Cheese actually taste amazing together. It's like only just realizing how these two such common ingredients are so meant to be together. And I can't believe it took me this long to try the combination on a Grilled Cheese Recipe.

Top Swimsuit Picks for the Summer



Asos

It's definitely summer here and the heat could not be more intense and humid. Everyday is a perfect day for the beach, and I wish I could do that instead of waiting for weekends. Nevertheless, I  can look (and shop!) for swimsuits any day of the week and I've found several really cute ones that I think are so perfect or the summer's planned beach outings. Check them all out after the jump!

Miri Arab Madrasah

A few months ago I took a trip to Uzbekistan with my family. I know, I know, it took me sooo long to write about it here - forgive me for that but as the cliché saying goes, better late than never right? Anyway, Uzbekistan. This country is located in Central Asia - bordered by Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgystan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan ( lots of 'tan countries!). It was my first time to visit any country in Central Asia.  I will be doing my Uzbekistan posts in three parts. Since we visited three cities in all (Tashkent, Bukhara and Samarkand), I will be doing one city per post. Today's post will be all about Bukhara. P.S. This a really, really, reaaaallly long post with lots and loooots of photos! Click through after the jump if you're still interested! (I also have an article on this in our local newspaper, a very short version of what I'm going to put up here on the blog. It's up online if you want to check that out)

A Super Simple, Easy and Healthy Dessert that's Delicious : Berry Banana Yogurt Sorbet

Healthy dessert ideas Berry Banana yogurt sorbet

I've been drinking a lot of smoothies lately, usually one that has lots and lots of berries. Berries are soooo good and so healthy for you too! One day I decided to try blending yogurt in to a berry banana smoothie and I realized that it tasted like a really good ice cream / sorbet. I was thinking that it would be amazing if I froze it and ate for dessert. I wasn't wrong - it turned out to be so good an so refreshing! I added in some lemon juice to the mix and it made the whole thing taste even more wonderful! The taste really reminded me of a bubblegum ice Popsicle that I used to love as a kid. This version is so delicious and way more healthy too! It is so simple and easy to make as well. Check it out after the jump!

Will You Be My Bridesmaid? Gift ideas For When You Ask Your Favorite Gal Pals to be Your Bridesmaid

Will You Be My Bridesmaid? Gift ideas For When You Ask Your Favorite Gal Pals to be Your Bridesmaid

Last month, one of my very good friends just asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. This would make it my fifth time being one! Though I've never been a bride (haha!), I can give you ideas on what to gift your bridesmaids when you ask them to be one - based on my experience.  What my friend did was to fill up a box of goodies that had a  note card inside with the most touching message and the question "Will You Be my Bridesmaid?"  at the end. She had a whole Alice in Wonderland theme going on so you can see at the front of the box a photo of Alice falling down the rabbit hole. Inside the box, she filled it with a mini bottle of champagne that had a tag that said "Drink Me', some chips and lollies that said "eat me" (in keeping with the Alice theme) and other wonderful goodies, like a scented candle, personalized cards, a champagne glass (to accompany the champagne ofcourse), a mini perfume roller, nail polish and so on.  Check out the photos below to see a closer look at everything.
