About Sweetlee

ABOUT SWEETLEE

Sweetlee interest in cooking has been influenced by many diffirent cultures having lived and travelled in 3 continents including her own country. She had worked in the hotel industry for over 15 years(not food related) a corporate executive until cancer came into her life but it didn't stopped her from traveling and working. As a survivor of 17 years (peri-ampullary) she was able to adjust her daily routine like cooking, baking, internet business, travel, and blogging for many hours (complaining of eye strain & poor eyesight - lol). The main reason why she made this blog is to talk about her recipes, cooking, baking and travel. She incorporates her cancer experience in this blog to let people know specially those who are "survivors" that there is hope, chance of survival and be normal again and do the things that you want to do while you are alive. You can say at the end of the day thank God you are alive. I need to live without regrets... to live the remainder of my life to the fullest and appreciate the simple things that sorrounds us, whether I will last for a number of years or for many decades more.
