No Exceptions!

A friend shared this photo on FB.

Hope this will bring a smile to your face in these grim times.

Lockdowns, hospitals and morgues overwhelmed. empty shelves, xenophobia, a masked society, world chaos...

Our lives are thrown out of whack...


It's like waking  up in the middle of the movie "Contagion"...


I  am inclined to believe that there is a silver lining when adversity knocks on the door. Things always happen for a reason.

I believe too, that God allowed this pandemic to return us to our true priorities — to the God who loves us, our families and the friends He has given us.

Mother Earth is given a chance to reboot  — to purge off  human pollution, to heal and  to rejuvenate.

"Since the lockdown: Venice's canals have become crystal clear. Italy coasts have dolphins coming nearer and nearer. Japan now has deer roaming free in the streets, and Thailand: the same with monkeys. China has record breaking pollution cuts. The Earth has already began showing signs of amazing things that are happening from the absence of human pollution. What if- and hear me out..- what if the entire human population used this as an opportunity to restart society on a greener, more environment conscious foot. What we're seeing in the span of a couple of days is amazing. A pipe dream "    - Gina Mayer

Swans have returned to the canals and dolphins have been spotted in the port.

In the meantime, sometimes the only things that can get you through these uncertain and  tumultuous times are a little laughter and a whole lot of friendship.

Fortunately, here in blogosphere, we needn't adhere to social distancing rules —  we can send virtual hugs and kisses as much as we'd like!

Sharing my go-to hymn whenever my head is in turmoil.

The words and melody never fail to sooth me.

Let's get through this together. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Awww Monday!

Guess whom I met this evening when I was on my way down to my sanctum to spend my quiet hour with the Lord?

This adorable poodle was waiting patiently for his owner who was chatting with a neighbour.

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee at Comedy Plus.

My Sanctum

It's hard to find solitude when you share a home with 3 other family members in a cluttered 1208 sq ft condominium.

So, whenever I feel like I'm snowed under by life's demands, I would head on over to the poolside on the ground floor late in the evening.

The pool is always deserted at this time.

My sanctum  where I spend my quiet time with the Lord.

Where is your sanctum?

Onde Onde

Q. What is  green and furry and literally bursts in your mouth in a sweet liquid explosion of flavors and textures when you take a bite?

A. Onde-Onde!

My all-time favourite dessert – traditional Nyonya (Malay-Chinese) green-coloured rice cakes filled with liquid palm sugar and coated in grated coconut.

What is your favourite dessert?
