    Should I Write in British English or American English (Or in Other Flairs)?

    Dear Beautiful Readers,

    In today’s WIP (Work In Progress), I would like to share with you another part of my writing journey. It was a dilemma, which took so long to decide. In the end, I did make a decision based on a few criterias and let me take you along what it is. Do bear with me as it’s not a long-winded post. 🙂

    It’s a rather intricate question for authors when it comes to writing. How do you choose which version of English you’re going to write in? British or American? Or maybe Canadian. You would probably say, “Well, it depends on your audience. If you’re targeting the American market, then go with the American English.” Right.

    2021 Project And Work In Progress

    Dear Beautiful Readers!

    It’s been way toooo long since my last post. How long has it been now? 3 months? Or more? Wow, time flies when you’re working on a project. A lot of things have happened over the past 3 months but I’m not going to bother you with the details.

    What I wanted to share with you is, sometimes life gives you inspiration and you don’t just sit on it. You take that and do something with it. I believe, life is too short to – just ponder. And if you need to take a pause to give way for other priorities, then that’s what you should do. For me, it’s always been my girls, my family and now – my new project.

    Easy Homemade Creamy Mushroom And Chicken Pie With Shortcrust Pastry

    One of the things which reminds me of home is my mother, working her magic in the kitchen making delicious meals – from her famous ‘sambal ikan bilis‘, ‘kangkung belacan‘, ‘mee goreng‘, chicken in peanut sauce, ‘Pongteh‘ chicken, to her ‘kari Debal‘; just to name a few. Another one of her famous recipe, which made me always go for that extra serving, is her homemade creamy mushroom and chicken pie.
