Authentic Chinese Dining at A Taste of Mandarin


Authentic Chinese Dining at A Taste of Mandarin
I've been to various Chinese fast food restaurants but never have I tried dining at an authentic one. And then the opportunity came when I was invited for another Zomato foodie meetup at the first ever authentic Chinese restaurant here in the metro. A Taste of Mandarin started in 1997 which is operated by the Gaisano and they really hired a head chef from China.

My First Sunset Cruise Experience

My First Sunset Cruise Experience

But through the years, my list grew and grew until I couldn't keep up and I got tired of writing them all. Now, I still have a bucket list but it's kind of " imaginary ." I know what I want to accomplish and I just want to tick them all off randomly. And of course, riding in a yacht is definitely one of the things I included in my imaginary bucket list. So when I received an invite to go on a summer yacht cruise, I eagerly said yes!

Mommy Diaries: How I Spent Mother's Day

Mommy Diaries: How I Spent Mother's Day

They say that being a mother is the epicenter of a woman's power. And I have to agree with that. From carrying a child in your womb, to giving birth with excruciating pain, to raising that child well; it all takes loads of patience, sacrifices, and of course, unconditional love. Being a mother at a young age is honestly very hard for me. It's one hell of a roller coaster ride but it's just all worth it. And last Sunday, as we all know, Mother's Day was celebrated worldwide. I'm not really the kind of person who celebrates special events but I thought that day has to be an exception. Zayn and I had our very first movie date together and we were both so happy!
