It was designed to cater to clients with assets starting at 250,000 Singapore dollars, or about $186,000. It felt more like an upscale lounge than a bank.

We had some dried chick peas in the pantry for a while and decided it was time to use them. Ken cooked them, and there were quite a few; more than we needed for the North African chakchouka he made just over a week ago. Four flavors of toasted chick peas. A tasty snack! The recipe is simple: rinse and dry the chick peas (the recipe calls for canned garbanzos), coat them light...

Along with detailing my wife’s situation, I also mentioned that the time now devoted to care, and also simply being together, would inevitably mean a reduction of photographic updates from the usual three post...
