Happy Father's Day!

Cakes are a must at social gatherings and this yellow delight is a delicious creation of sponge, cream and hazelnut. Places where European influence is strong have always been the hub of cakes. Malaysia is no exception and western-style cakes have been adopted and adapted on a grand scale. The world's first cake traces its history back to ancient Egypt.
  
Cakes are regarded as treats and party planners recognise their ceremonial importance at social events. This cake was served at a recent gathering, which was held on the eve of Father's Day, to celebrate my brother's graduation day.


This leftover chunk is so tempting. Who should have it? It seems only fair that the host, my sister, should keep it. This is a really great cake. Thanks are due to the party sponsors -- Elene and Achid.

Many are treating their dads to lunch today.

Others are spending time with their fathers in search of that special bonding session.

Yet others are holding prayer gatherings to remember their old men who have passed on.

Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever -- Author Unknown.

Happy Father's Day!

I will not be able to attend my friend's wedding because I will be in Kuching, Sarawak on the day of the reception. When duty calls, ...
That is so sad. I will make it up to you Koh Soo Ling, who is pictured here with husband Michael Howard.
Soo Ling has found happiness with a wonderful Irish man who loves her with an intensity that makes her heart flutter.

Yes, Soo Ling will continue to write for New Sunday Times and she promises to share her activities with readers in Malaysia.
Theirs is not a whirlwind romance. They started as pen pals, two teenagers who were eager to learn about foreign cultures.
Pen pal relationships are so mysterious. Some write to their friends abroad for only a short time; others continue to swap letters and gifts in their old age.
Yet o…

Follow the trail

Nature trails such as the one pictured above make me want to go for long walks. It is a joy to take a path through countryside, along which interesting plants, animals, among others can be seen. When was the last time you got out of the city to enjoy the countryside? When was the last time you reflected on the state of the environment? Do you even care what happens to our green areas? There is nothing better than treading a new path with congenial company and savouring the sense of freedom that it gives us. Equally important, the activity allows us to assess the extent of damage we have inflicted on our natural world, which biologist E.O. Wilson says "is in deep trouble". "Scientists estimate that if habitat conversion and other destructive human activities continue at their present rates, half the species of plants and animals on Earth could be either gone or at least fated for early extinction by the end of the century."
