Do you like taking photos of your food or are you annoyed by this trend?
About six years ago, I invited a few BCU students to our home and I made a number of mouth-watering dishes, as usual with a strong Sichuan flavour, hot and spicy. I remember a Malaysian Chinese stu...

Food, flowers, cats... whatever wanders in front of my lens gets shot. And I enjoy seeing into other lives as much as I like to share mine.

“It’s a beautiful day outside. Let’s go somewhere,” I said to my better half. “Is there anywhere in Birmingham we have not been yet?” “Of course, there is,” John replied, “south of Birmingham.” Of ...

Story
Tagline
Love Books, Love Life!
Introduction
I love a lot of things - good people, reading & writing, and travelling the world, I enjoy socialising/interacting with people from different race, gender, religion and culture etc, as long as you are generous in spirit, treating fellow human beings with respect, giving to people in need, compassionate, helpful and genuine. I love great food, both cooking and consumption. Most of all, I love life! If you are positive, optimistic and enthusiastic, if you live an exemplary life, be kind to people and to our environment, you've got a friend in me :) 
Bragging rights
I have published 3 books under my name on Amazon: http://authl.it/tp; http://authl.it/tm; http://authl.it/da, and Smashwords & iBook. I am glad to be alive after several life-threatening accidents & illness.
