Bed and break­fast

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Editor’s Note - EMMELYN CINDY MAH EDI­TOR

I’ve grap­pled a lot with the con­cept of break­fast, and I’m not go­ing to lie – most days, I can’t be both­ered with more than a ba­nana with my non­nego­tiable cof­fee. Still, it’s a well-known fact that break­fast is the most im­por­tant meal of the day. It’s how one ‘breaks their fast’ of the night, and it’s sub­se­quently how one kick­starts the sys­tem for the day, lend­ing strength and en­ergy with which to com­bat the on­slaught of chores and work.

A quick smoothie or a slice of toast not­with­stand­ing, the ul­ti­mate king­pin of break­fast foods has got to be pan­cakes. Thank­fully, a good pan­cake doesn’t need to be made fresh; I’ve shared here three of my per­sonal favourite recipes, and they’re great for make-ahead break­fasts if you’re so in­clined. Turn to page 102 to get cook­ing, and get snug­gling – be­cause let’s face it: the best break­fasts are break­fasts in bed.

On that, we’re cel­e­brat­ing Spring with a fan­tas­tic fea­ture on beds! From our favourite bed­room fur­nish­ings and ac­ces­sories in Pan­tone’s Spring colours to our picks for bed­ding and beds, we’ve got you cov­ered. Check out the fea­ture, which starts on page 38! And to keep your homes and bed­rooms snug and cool, check out our story on how to keep cool with lower costs – both for Mother Earth and for the good of your wal­let. Turn to page 32 to see how!

As al­ways, we’ve got a great se­lec­tion of homes for your pe­rusal. I hope you’ll find in­spi­ra­tion and joy in them.

Have a great May ahead, and to all moth­ers – my own amaz­ing, strong, and much­beloved mother in­cluded – Happy Mother’s Day!
