I’d like to consider myself a foodie, especially when I lived in Philadelphia for four years while completing my undergraduate degree at Drexel University. Philly is one of the greatest cities for good food and I ate that up (literally) in my time living there. Since I moved back into the suburbs, I’ve made it a point to get to the city to return to my favorite yummy spots and explore new ones.
Last year, when I was unemployed for a bit, I had to think of ways to make some quick, easy money. I tried surveys that paid, but they did not pay well enough to cover even the smallest bill. Through the suggestion of friends and family, I found a couple side-hustle jobs that require little to no effort but still bring in some money.

Now that we're into the month of May, farmers markets that shut down over the winter months or were operating with a reduced number of vendors and products are opening up.
I love, love, love macaroni and cheese! If it’s on a menu, I’m usually eager to try a taste. I was recently reading about a new partnership that introduced me to the World Famous House of Mac, with three locations in Florida. I had to peruse the menu, and my mouth was watering. I can’t wait to get back to Miami to try a taste for myself. However, I don’t know how I could ever choose just one type of macaroni when options include Pizza Mac & Cheese; Beef & Broccoli Mac & Cheese; Chicken, Turkey Bacon & Ranch Mac & Cheese; and more!
It’s crazy to think it has been nearly two years since I wrote this blog about getting familiar with Philadelphia. We moved from New York City earlier that summer, and though we have been constantly in and out visiting family and friends, we wanted to make Philly feel like home.

For all its cosmopolitan trappings, Singapore remains, at heart, a tropical island. The city planners determinedly preserved gennery and the high groves of concrete and glass, and for a complete escape from urban bustle there still remain patches of the jungle and mangroves that covered the island when Sir Stamford Raffles first established a trading outpost here in 1819.
In this era of 6,500-passenger mega-ships, any cruise vessel conveying fewer than a thousand voyagers is considered a small ship, including high-end luxury liners, deluxe expedition ships and the world’s riverboats. The focus on many small ships is the destination rather than the conveyance, the expert chat rather than the Broadway show, the watersport rather than the casino, the scenery and culture rather than the full-service spa and specialty restaurant. Passengers make a travel style choice, forgoing the options and pleasures of a resort-sized vessel for the deeper, more immersive experience of a yacht-scaled ship.
