HOW IT ALL STARTED?
Out of the blue, I decided that I want to start a blog. I figured rather than I drive my darling 'Captain' aka husband crazy with all my antics and tireless chatter, might as well I put them in words and share them with others in a blog. Now, what should I blog about? Well, normally people blog on topics of which they are credible of, for their expertise on certain field or for what they are passionate about. Well, I am not an expert on anything nor do I have any formal qualification on anything that I am passionate about BUT I have a lot of passion. I have passion in everything - fashion, food, travel, healthy living, fitness, music.. you name it and chances are I know about it BUT still, I am no expert. I am what you call 'Jack of all trades' hence the title of my blog. What I know are based on self-experience and experiments.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I am a 43 year old (2013) mother to my fabulous 3 sons and a wife to darling 'Captain'. We are currently residing in Dubai where 'Captain' is flying with one of the airlines. Ever since I quit my job as a TV Producer and moved to Dubai, I have been a 'stay at home mom' or better known as Lady of Leisure ; ) and during my spare time I love to browse the net while listening to the music, browse the malls, keep fit, travel whenever I can or just hang out with my boys. Being an expat in a foreign country that hosts expatriates from hundreds of nationalities, I am privileged enough to witness many amusing, inspiring and appalling scenes around me of which I will share with you along the way, so, stick around!
My outfit posts might not be fancy and magazine center spread material but they are what I wear on the day to day basis depending on what I do on that particular day. I am trying to be more practical and wear more of what I already have in my closet and buy what I think needed to compliment them. My New Year resolution for 2012 is to Wear more and Buy less! It's a test and lets see if I can manage! Most (if not all) of the pictures were taken by my 13 year old twin sons.
The recipes posted on this blog are the ones I have tried many times and 'mastered' or the ones I tried for the first time. So bear with the 'trial and error' bit and mind the pictures, they might not be pretty!
We are privileged to be able to travel a bit and we hope to share some pictures and information on the places we were able to visit with you!
