My friend Courtney of Mela and Roamwas recently featured in Vogue, and I couldn't be happier for her! Her dohars (Indian summer blankets) are a dream to sleep with. The texture is like a slightly thicker, dreamy, layered topsheet. We've had ours for over a year, and not only has it held up to multiple washings (the bed is sort of a family hangout these days), it's the only blanket we use year-round here in Charleston.
Before Gravy Too was born she also sent us the most adorable block-printed bloomers. I think every little girl needs ruffled, hand-printed fish covering her bottom, no? Now if only they made these in adult sizes ...
A friend pointed out over the weekend that a few food bloggers from Kuala Lumpur were featured in the New York Times recently. I've been a fan of Masak-Masak since my first days back in KL, and was so happy to see her featured at the top of the story. Congrats, boo!
(The only surprise to me was that one of the bloggers took the reporter to my beloved Imbi Market but that they ate Sisters' Popiah, which can be found even in Pavilion KL mall these days, and not the amazing pork curry laksa, which still keeps me up at night.)
I've written a guest post about The Gravy Baby's transition into big boy underpants for the Charleston edition of Macaroni Kid, a national community and events newsletter for parents. Check it out here.
