My first blog!

Hi everyone! Well, I am very new to this blogging society. I’ve read a lot of other’s blogs in my lifetime but when it came to owning one myself, it was an inner debate which I just surrendered to – eventually.

So, a little about me. My name is Sharlinie, Malaysian by birth and currently reside in the UK. I am a writer and currently on the verge of finishing my first book titled Courage, which I am going to publish next year – 2018. ( Celebrations on the cards!!! )

I wanted to get it published this year, ( I’ll just keep it short..)  but being a perfectionist, a book enthusiast, avid reader and with some wise editorial advice, I am perfecting my baby as it grows!

This website is about anything and everything. Sharing a lot of my travels, food and recipes, family traditions and customs of my birth country and adopted country.

So, please stay with me and feel at home while I type away my daily anecdote. You are always welcome to join me with a nice cup of hot tea or coffee and pen down your thoughts, opinions, feedbacks or even if it’s just to drop a – Hi!

The Years before Brexit.

All relationship needs mutual respect and trust to build and grow.

If you can’t work it to make it, then by all means break it!

We’ve enjoyed being a part of the European Union since 1973. As all good things come to an end, so did Britain’s relationship with the EU.

What a phenomenon Brexit has stirred!? Although, we still have a year to go before we leave them definitely. I do not want to get into any political debates on this matter but rather just share some of my favourite moments of Breunion!

Some of  my European travels that I’ve enjoyed immensely. I hope you do too!


Dubrovnik, Croatia.

A beautiful sunny day in an Island at Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Waking up to crystal clear Adriatic Sea, the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the colours of life.. it’s a blessing.
