Spent my Winter on the beach!

2010 was a fantastic year, filled with unforgettable memories.  My husband and I, kicked off the year by spending a couple of weeks in pure sunshine and tropical weather. We managed to run out businesses remotely, but still had plenty of time to relax.


Are you eating FAKE blueberries?

Sometimes you really don’t get what you pay for.  In today’s news on LA Times.com, I came across a very disturbing article about major food companies cutting corners by putting “fake” blueberries in their foods.  People are usually  buy a cereal or snack that contains fruit, because they automatically think it will be healthier.  Blueberry has gotten really popular over the years, because it is very healthy and contains antioxidants.  It’s a shame that big and well known food companies are clearly taking advantage of consumers.

Oh, How I’ve Missed You, MOS Burger

Home to the famous crispy rice patty burgers.  I used to visit you in Hawaii, but one day, you left me.  MOS Burger, I’m so happy we reunited all the way in Singapore.



Thailands Newest Gem – Tachai Island

With pure white sand beach, green foliage, hiking paths, and crystal clear waters, Tachai Island ranks among one of the hottest new places to visit in Thailand.  This serene and picturesque beach is a rare gem that has not been flooded with visitors like the Similan Islands.

You’ll have plenty of uninterrupted R&R time to sunbathe, snorkel, hike, or just float around in the ocean.  You can get to Tachai Islands by speed boat, which takes 1 hr and 20 minutes each way.  Trust me, it is well worth the time.
