  1. Watch Be Home For Dinner TVB Online

    April 26, 2011 by barbara

    Be Home For Dinner looks like a very good show which I would enjoy watching.  This not-so-new TVB sitcom replaced Show Me The Happy.   This 80-episode drama stars some of my favourite actors and actresses such as Ngok Wah, Kristal Tin and Queenie Chu.   This drama is about a traditional Chinese household and the love for fine food.  Have you watched this drama?

    Here are the synopsis.

    In a Chinese household, the dining table is the place where the family’s relationship revolves upon on. The CHUNG family is the traditional model Chinese family. The father CHUNG KWOK CHYU (Ngok Wah) is the supplement chief editor for Ko Jim Daily. He enjoys a famous reputation as a food critic. Loving the taste in the food markets, CHYU ensures he’s home for dinner every night. He believes the best home cooked dishes are made with the world’s highest quality ingredient…..love.

    At the Chung household, CHYU has to face the dough kneading bickering younger brother CHUNG KWOK TUNG (Stephen Au) and his son CHUNG SI HON (Jason Chan), whose values differ from his. His wife BO KWAI SUM (Helena Ma) also fears that she’s not doing enough as the stepmother. And finally there is the half-siblings (same father, different mother) SI HON and SI NA (Katy Kung).. who do not understand fine foods. How can fine foods be drawn into each member of the Chung family and open the window?

  4. Summer Wedge Shoes 2011

    April 19, 2011 by barbara

    While my spouse is busy looking for the cheapest davidoff cigars, I have been scanning my favourite online stores to shop for a pair of black casual heels.   I need one which would go well with shorts, denims or 3/4 pants.  I just threw away my 3-year old wedge platform from Nine West because the leather has cracked and started to peel.   I intend to get another wedge shoe because they are so comfortable and versatile.  I was at Nine West just now and saw a few wedges that I really like.

  8. Birthday Gift For A Six Year Old

    April 7, 2011 by barbara

    My daughter will be celebrating her 6th birthday next month.  I still have not decided what present to give her.  My spouse suggested that we get her a bicycle since she has been asking for one with a basket when she saw it at a bicycle shop in the mall.  Oh, she also prefers one that is pink as pink is her favourite colour.  I wonder if we could find a folding bike too.  It would be easy to bring along to the park.  If not, we may need to get a thule bike rack for our car.

  9. The Ultimate Juicer

    April 4, 2011 by barbara

    Check out this cool kitchen gadget from Royal VKB.  It is a double-sided hand juicer which allows you to juice without any mess.  Just place the Citrange juicer directly on the glass.  It has a built-in funnel which will guide the juice into the glass.  Another great thing is that the Citrange also filters out the seeds.  The rounded side is for bigger fruits like grapefruits or orange and the pointy side is for lemons or limes.  I love to have my juices in the morning before I pop some pre workout supplements. The Citrange is just what I need.

    I just discovered Cath Kidston recently.  A friend was using a pretty floral tote bag and when I queried, she told me it’s a Cath Kidston.  I checked her website as soon as I could and I fell over heels in love with her collection. Designer, Cath Kidston is based in London and is known for her quirky, floral print.  Besides clothing, accessories and bags, she has expanded  her products to homewares and kids.  Today, Cath Kidston is a unique global lifestyle brand.  Here are a few things which I really like.
