The other day at the market, while I was eating delicious homemade chocolate crepe, I told le hubby who drank coffee and ate his bacon and egg sandwich, that I think I have mental disease.

don’t judge me

Hello again internet! As usual I haven't been blogging since....maybe last January after my Vietnam's post . I'm lying if I say I don't have time or I was busy.  Yes, my life is busy enough even though I don't work in "the real working place" like most of you do.  But, trust me, running [...]

I used to think that gardening or plants are just for old people.  I mean, when you are 60 and above, then it's the kind of thing you would do to kill time.  I often admired my late mother in law's  garden and amused with all her colourful petunias.  I always love pretty garden though, [...]

In this part of the world where I live, spring is in the air.  Although some mornings and nights are still chill, but at least the sun shines and the flowers bloom.  I can say bye bye to turtle neck and thick jumpers, finally! I can't believe that more than half of the year has [...]

have you ever felt like this way

Have you ever felt that no matter how hard you try, you still can’t fit in in the society? Have you ever so wanted to be in the circle that you thought they were a cool bunch of people and had similar style, interest, and philosophy of life as you but no matter what, they [...]

6 years in blogging + giveaway

Apparently according to WordPress, today is marked my six years of blogging with WordPress.  Yaaay, happy birthday to http://www.ohdearria.com I suppose! In these six years of blogging, I probably just started religiously writing or posting in the last 2 years, I think.  Before that I was on and off, more off than on..tee hee... So, [...]
