My Favorite Ways To Say Thanks

I love traveling, and I love food. Quite often I choose to travel to a destination just to sample the local cuisine. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to travel and enjoy all the gorgeous meals I’ve had without the hospitality of some wonderful people I’ve met. And when people do those lovely things for you, I love to say thanks in my own way. Here are some of the best ways I’ve found to say thank you:
Flowers
Sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a lovely way to say thank you when someone has put you up in their home. It takes time, effort and lots of extra cleaning and tidying to have a guest stay in your home. I really do appreciate all that extra work when I stay at a friend’s home or with my family. Arranging a flower delivery by Flowers For Everyone offers a token of thanks after I’ve left. It says I’m remembering having a lovely time.
Wine
When I am invited to a home-cooked dinner, I think it is polite to bring something for the table. Lots of people like to bring a bottle of wine. Not all my dinner parties include alcohol, though. I’m just as happy bringing the dessert! Sometimes it’s nice to bring a fruit basket. They always look so beautifully presented as well. It all depends on how healthy I’m trying to be!
Card
Sometimes when I’m on my travels, I find I’m offered extra help here and there. Most people are really generous with their time and go out of their way to make sure I’m comfortable. It’s really sweet, so I try to remember that with a thank you card. It’s always nice to receive a thank you after you’ve helped someone. I’ve even sent them to companies whose staff have gone the extra mile to make me feel welcome.   I love music and I will check out how much are keyboards are.  After purchasing one, I will learn up and dedicate a song to my love one!  That would make a great gift too!
Reciprocation
Of course the best way to say thanks is to reciprocate. If I’ve had a lovely meal with a friend, then I want to invite them to my home to enjoy the same. I love spending time with people. And best of all, I love a good meal! I do my best to cater to all tastes. I try to provide the same good accommodation when I can too.
Gift
If you know the person well that you want to thank, then you might be able to select the perfect gift. Perhaps they’re into horse riding? A crystal ornament of a horse can be a lovely way to say thanks. My musically minded friends always love it if I find them a rare recording of a much-loved artist. Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. After all, it’s the thought that counts.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
