Guess what? The big cat (that’s me! Winello and Perdita being the small cats) has learned a new trick.
That’s me on my pyjamas randomly playing the first piece I memorized >>> none other than Love Me Tender (by Elvis Presley). While my fingers are still a little uncomfortable, I’m happy enough. Not bad for a (super) beginner. I’m also enjoying how the process of notes reading, etc. nurtures my patience. And of course, no matter how trapped we may seem by busyhood, if we want it, we can make it happen.

Craving for BonChon while in the UAE? There’s a solution. And it goes with finding KIMCHICKIN.
I am one of those who thought that the only franchise of BonChon in the Middle East has long disappeared. I am glad that it has just been re-branded as “KimChickin”. The move isn’t surprising since its franchisee is a Korean architect, Ryan SungHaak Chung.

He brought BonChon to Dubai instead.
We have recently visited St. Regis, a 5-star resort hotel situated in Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.The main purpose of the visit was to try Sontaya, a restaurant overlooking the Arabian Gulf. The name of the restaurant fairly gives an idea that it offers Thai dishes since “sontaya” means “sunset” in Thai.
The request for the feature was first communicated to me by its founder in March of 2012, however, I was able to address the request only recently. Those who frequent this blog can probably tell that I have been caught by ultra busyhood. Again, I thank the team for the patience and gentle reminders.
