No Q For Book Lovers

Besides being a food lover, I am also into books!  But not all kinds of books, only selective ones.  Before the computer was "born", I was an avid book reader. When I eat alone at home, there would be a book beside me... when I go to my "private small cubicle", I would be holding a book too... and yes, before I go to sleep those days, I would be reading some chapters and sometimes when the storyline gets more and more exciting, I would be reading even when it was after midnight.
Books pending... yet to be read...

Well, as time goes by and the latest gadgets come to "live"... I spend less of my time reading books but more into reading blogs and social media networking (the one that starts with a capital F).... but nevertheless, I still manage to squeeze in some of my day's time to read... 
I received a small package sent from Singapore recently. 
My books which I ordered through this online store called noqstore.asia has finally arrived!
My favourite author is Sidney Sheldon but since he has passed on, 
Tilly Bagshawe is the one I am following now.... 
Her writing style is almost the same with the Sidney Sheldon.
Here's her three books that I have ordered and arrived!

And now to benefit my readers... you can also order books in this website here by quoting REANA and get an exclusive 15% discount on all purchases at NoQ store... valid from 11 August till 31 December 2014!  More than 14 million books are in store for you... No Buy never mind, at least go and take a look!

  1. Ahhhhh!!!! Good convenient way to buy books but I do enjoy browsing around the stores to pick the book I want plus the added bonus of the nice smell of brand new books.

    2. Won't buy if I have a choice. Last week a small piece of plastic fell off from the hole that I insert the charging connector. It's been going downhill ever since. Now I charge the phone overnight, can get 40% capacity only :(

    3. Oh really... then must get one.. 40% can only last a couple of hours if using watsapp.. or even less if surfing.. Chinese saying... old one don't go, how to get new one leh?

  9. Me too! I love to read, and when I was growing up, I would even bring a book to the dinner table. That made my mom mad. But now there is laptop, ipad, Smart phone, and my books stay in the bookcase. There are not enough hours in the day, Claire!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
