It’s been long since I’ve blogged! Another year is coming to a close and once again we are into fall.
It’s not that we get different seasons in Singapore. Disclaimer: leaves pictured above are handpicked by my parents on their Japan trip! But I do enjoy the relatively cooler weather here towards year-end. Fall — or what little I know of it — has always been my favourite season (I think) because it’s not overly cold and yet comfy enough to layer on the clothing (again, I am relying on imagination ha ha). Fall colours are always pretty too; warm, inviting, and the kind you’d want to be all snuggled up in. Think dark greens, mustards, greys…
The semester has ended and the holidays have begun! I decided to try something different today before I delve into all that baking and posting more food recipes. Excited?
Inspired by the many shopping haul vlogs I’ve been seeing on YouTube, I’m going to start sharing my purchases too. Yay! The whole idea is somewhat like the “what’s in my bag” trend that started a few years back, except this is probably a “what’s in my SHOPPING bag” version 🙂
I don’t have a video channel as yet, and besides I’m plagued with stage fright so being in front of a video camera with an imaginary audience pretty much freaks me out all the same, so I’ll be sticking with just writing for now.
Read on if you’re interested to find out what I got from ASOS this fall/winter! I hope all of you will enjoy this new section I’m introducing onto the blog (especially the girls)! x
Granted it could be a biased opinion, since I adore anything that’s cream cheese cheesecake-y. But this one… I made them for the first time to be served at my birthday party recently, because blueberries and lemon went nicely with my theme colours: blue, white and yellow.
To my absolute delight and surprise, IT WAS A HUUUUGE HIT.
Getting compliments for my own bakes at my own 21st? It’s like the icing — or the blueberries? — on the cake!
Usually I find it a bother to search for an outfit to put together, but I often end up really satisfied with the outcome. Like this one.
My girlfriend’s 21st birthday party was last Saturday, themed “AHOY!”. Instead of the mermaids she suggested girls to dress up as (since she was a sea goddess), I decided on being a little sailor girl.
I’ve been told one time too many lately that I take these themed parties too seriously. It’s probably true.
Mother’s Day came a day earlier for my family this year.
Last night, instead of heading out to a fancy restaurant, we had a quiet and simple celebration at home. No party, no frills — just home.
Crowds aside, love was the reason we all chose to be at home. And I’m sure home with those whom we love the most (and those only who can love us the most) was where everyone most wanted to be.
Full colour grilled vegetables.
My Dad’s really fond of what we’d call “Western food”. To him, that’s simple cooking. It’s true, sometimes; Asian food is a whole different ball game. So since he was in charge of dinner for the night, Western was on the menu.
