Hello my dear readers,
I cannot believe that I’m saying “Hello September” already!
We are in the last quarter of 2022! It’s incredible how fast the time flies!
As the days grow shorter and the leaves start to change color, it’s hard not to get excited for all that autumn has in store. Here in Singapore, being near to the equator, sunrise and sunset do not differ significantly throughout the year, so the days have almost the same length, around 12 hours of daylight. Even if Singapore doesn’t have the 4 seasons, I can still feel that autumn sensation when I see the leaves falling and changing their colors.
Whether you’re a pumpkin spice lover or an autumn leaves admirer, there’s plenty to enjoy this time of year. So let’s get ready to soak up everything September has to offer!
How was your August?
I hope you all had a great August! Mine was packed with work, as usual. I am glad that despite the fact that I’ve not really recovered 100% after COVID, I was able to get back to my regular routine. For me, that means, besides office work, fitness training and exercising, outdoor running, and cooking, of course.
What about you?
My book for August?
In August I’ve read an adrenaline-filled, action-adventure thriller book called The Vatican Secret by David Leadbeater.
I’m not a very fast reader, and I don’t have time to read the entire day, but this book hooked me from the first pages, and I finished it in 2 days despite the fact that it has more than 400 pages.
Synopsis (as mentioned on the book):
When ex-MI5 operative Joe Mason is sent to Rome to guard an elderly professor and his daughter, he thinks he’s in for an easy ride.
But on their first day in the Vatican secret archives, a masked assassin gains entry, shoots Joe’s client in cold blood and steals an ancient manuscript. Giving chase, Joe can’t imagine what could lie within those pages that would make someone willing to kill.
The search for answers leads Joe and his comrades in a race against time, across continents and into treacherous mountains. Only they have a hope of rescuing the Vatican Book of Secrets before centuries-old enemy can succeed in bringing Rome – and the world as we know it – crashing down…
It is a fast-paced page-turner book!
As for the cooking part, I’ve developed lots of delicious recipes in August. Below are just a few:

Wish you all a wonderful September, filled with health, happiness, love and lots of accomplishments.
