Me & the girls at the beach on a cold, breezy day.

Hello! My name is Patricia. I’m a realist and a fan of simple living and mindful eating.

New Bloggy Cat (NBC) is a mixed bag of all the things in life that matter – quotes, epigrams, life-lessons, tributes, anecdotes, jokes and delish recipes that I believe would make a memorable and priceless gift to my daughters.

Life isn’t picture perfect. Sometimes, it gets nutty and kind of chaotic, living with a meticulous hubby and two gorgeous but very demanding daughters. One is precocious & perspicacious and the other loquacious & vivacious. I love my perfectly imperfect family. With them around, there is never a dull moment and certainly no shortage of melodrama.

The artist – always in deep thought
The little princess aka drama queen

I’m passionate about coffee, tea, chocolate, art, books, ideas, comedy, beaches, movies, homemade stuff and all furry creatures big and small.

Thanks for dropping by, liking my post and following my blog. If you are a mom, may God bless you with overflowing buckets of love, joy, peace, laughter and patience. (✿◠‿◠)


Peace & blessings,
Patricia Chew

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m glad I found your blog but it will take me a while to go through all your posts.
      God bless you & family & Mutley dog too *(^___^)*


    1. Hi Gillian, thank you for the likes and follow. I’m glad you found my blog so I could get to know you and your blog too :).

      Have a great day & happy blogging!

      Cheers, Pat


  1. So you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…



    1. Glad to be part of the clan, Uncle Spike ;). Your blog is very entertaining and refreshing…and the picture of the camel is just perfect :). With 2 young children, it will take me a while to ‘crawl’ through your posts. Blessings to you and happy blogging! Cheers, Pat


  2. Hi Pat,
    Thank you very much for visiting my blog and your very warm and encouraging feedback. I could use a few overflowing buckets of love, joy, peace and patience dealing with my kids at the moment. The ups and downs of parenting…all within the same day…can be rather perplexing but rewarding, enriching and the stuff that makes you tear your hair out.
    Blessing to you and your family,


    1. It’s a pleasure, Rowena. Yes, the ups and downs of parenting. I always joke that whenever I feel like I’m going insane it’s time to prepare the next meal for my family. Blessings to you and family too, Pat ʕ•́ᴥ•̀ʔっ


  3. Until our recent chain of comments over on Victo’s blog, I was unaware of your blog. I don’t know how I’ve missed it, but I’m making up for it now. I’ll be following you so I don’t miss future stories.

    Also, I have chosen you as one of my nine blogs in That’s So Jacob’s Ninth Month Blog Challenge (http://www.thatssojacob.wordpress.com)! I challenge you to find nine blogs you find interesting and give them a comment to brighten their day…well, eight other blogs and mine 🙂 Copy this message in your comment and enjoy your new blog friends!

    There is absolutely no obligation, of course – accept the challenge or not, as you wish – but if you happen to find new blogs to follow, that’s always a plus.

    BTW, I noticed that you’ve liked or commented on a number of the posts on my blog. In appreciation, I hereby award you the Cordelia’s Mom Enthusiasm Award: http://cordeliasmomstill.com/2014/07/31/award-fu-follow-up-you-smut-minded-people/

    Yay, to both of us!
