Sea Queen Presents Dim Sum by the Sea @ Straits Quay

In Penang, it is hard to find a Dim Sum place with a decent environment. Hot weather and mostly overcrowded and chaotic coffee shops (aka kopi tiam) don't really allow one to indulge in the pleasure of eating dim sum with one's family and/or friends. 


What if I tell you now that there's a new place in town that offers a choice of outdoor seating with seafront view or indoor seating with air conditioning, a variety of made-to-order dim sum choices, and abundant parking spaces? Now, that sounds like a legit place to enjoy dim sum now, doesn't it?

30 Ways to Cheer Yourself Up

I was in a horrible mood yesterday. So I did what any sane girl would do. I picked up my phone and called up one of my best friends to get it all out of my system. Luckily, she picked up (which was something rare) and we found ourselves talking about a lot of things for the next 2 hours. 


One of the topics that we discussed during that phone call was happiness. As we recalled from our childhood memories, we realized that happiness was easier back then. A box of new crayons could keep us happy for probably the whole semester. Back then, it wasn't hard to answer the question "what would make you happy". Cheering yourself up meant an ice cream, a new bottle of glitter glue and a packet of stickers. 

Now, as adults what could we do to cheer ourselves up when we are feeling down? Glitter glue and heart-shaped stickers definitely don't cut it anymore. Maybe a unicorn as a pet might be the answer to all my prayers? Who knows...
