Retired no one told me and Orienthailiving weekly roundup…Fruity Fridays, The Secret Bunker and Strawberry Daquari…

Boy, don’t the weeks fly by???

The first post out of the starting gate was my new Fruity Fridays which kicked off with the delicious Pineapple…Full of Vitamin C and the perfect accompaniment to many a dish.

It was then over to Bridget for her delicious Irish Soda Bread I was straight down to the kitchen as with only 2 ingredients how could I not make them…I threw in a handful of raisins and they were soon cooked and buttered while hot…think 20%…haha….Bridget then tells me I could add syrup or cheese…Oh yum!

Then it was a trip over to my other blog Orienthailiving and the conclusion of the Lantern Festival and Chinese New Year and the food they eat traditionally Tang Yuan…Beautiful Chinese balls with lots of different filling and sauces…Another Yum! And not only do you get delicious food but look at these little children’s clothes and tell me they are not so cute…

Next, we had my Healthy Eating post… Eat what you like and lose weight…Oh yes… you can if you choose wisely. And after those delectable Tang Yuan and that Irish Soda Bread… I did only have half of one farl…honestly… But I still feel the need for a good walk and get back to my 80% and practise what I preach…haha

Then it was back over to Orienthailiving for my first post of the week which was Travel England as it is my birthplace and the other secret place I found..not so glamorous but very interesting and a piece of history ” The Secret Bunker“.Creepy though!
