Hello hello

Hello, how are you all?
I have been away so long… more than a year!!! Ohhh my…. time passes by so quickly these days, a year ago feels like yesterday.

I am writing this post from my phone, using the wordpress app I downloaded ages ago. I hope this post will turn out correct :)

For my first post in 2014, and after disappearing for more than a year… I want to wish all of you out there in the world wide web a ….

Sleep and 2 new projects

For those of you who read my FB status, you would realised that recently I have been sleeping really late and waking up considerably late in the morning. I am usually an early riser, 7am at the latest; but I have been waking up around 10am these past week. The reason for this is because I’ve been hooked onto watching sitcoms on YouTube and playing online games. It’s a wonder with modern technology and social media, everything is so accessible from the comfort of my home. Not only that, I get updates via twitter on news and upgrades for the movie or games which I subscribe to. All I need is internet connection and a laptop… ^^

Meanwhile, I got 2 projects in hand, using these 2 combinations of fabric. What do you think?

The pastel peach colour is so soft and sweet.

I find the umbrellas very kawaii, and purple is just royal !

I will share the outcome of the projects soon. Have a nice day!

This was the “scene” in my kitchen last night.

The layer cake I mentioned I was baking then

My sister said “macam factory” (like a factory) at work. Hehe…

Then after this cake was completed, we decided that we should make another cake – a simple one – Butter Cake with Choco Chips! Yum!

Well, factory closed past midnight last night. It was all worthy.

Come back tomorrow for my giveaway post. Go here to sign up too!

hello churros!

My last post was slightly more than a week ago.

Not much of sewing was done – just one (will share later), but I manage to do quite a lot of cooking. I made Assam (Tamarind) Prawns just 2 days ago, but I don’t have a photo for it. Was too excited to dig in and wallop the prawns 😛 Yesterday I made Wholemeal pancakes. Also no photos. :(

This morning, I decided to make Churros for breakfast. Recipe from here. I saw it on AFC (Asian Food Channel) and it looked easy enough to make.

Turned out good ! Slightly on the sweet side which I don’t prefer, but overall it is yummy!

My Churros turned out VERY crispy because I use a very small piping tip – which is the only one I had.

Oh ya, there this Sew Mama Sew Giveway happening on 21st of May, and I have decided to join! You can read more about it here and maybe decide to join too?

Ok, have a great day. I’ll be back later today (hopefully) to blog about my new space at home.

New Etsy Shop: OurLadyOfGrace

I opened a new Etsy shop today. It is named Our Lady Of Grace .

This shop is mainly to sell all my “handmade Catholic/christian religious products” such as Rosary beads, photos, etc.

I’ve listed 3 items today. They are my handmade wooden photos of Mother Mary in different representations.
Our Lady of China, Tong Lu church

Our Lady of Vladimir or Virgin of Vladimir

Click on the photos to go to my Flickr where I have some explaination about the photos. Thank you for reading :-)

chocolates!

I simply love them.

chocolates

Ritter Sport is one of my favourite chocolate brands. I bought these when I was visiting Germany last year end. Kept them like treasure in my fridge 😛 Finally, I had to eat them before they get expire.

They are so affordable overseas… barely MYR5. In Malaysia, we get them in duty free in the airport for MYR9, or MYR7 in duty free states like Langkawi. Not many places sells them. In Village Grocer (aka the expatriate grocery shops.. expensive! MYR 13) on occasions we can find them. That being said, it is also hard to find a variety of flavours. These winter range cannot be found in Malaysia.

Ok. The reason for this random post is because I tried editing this photo in pixlr express. As we all know picnik is closing very very soon… like this Thursday *sad*… so this pixlr express is the most recommended replacement. Frankly, I don’t know why they have to shut down picnik. I don’t know what I will do if flickr decides to close too 😛

Anyway, I hope you all are have the bestest of the weekend!
Cheers!

Happy Easter!

I hope it is not too late to wish you a very Happy and Blessed Easter.

I have been MIA (missing in action) lately, due to work commitments and just being brain dead after that.

I have been continuing with my “spring cleaning” though, albeit not as I planned i.e. one thing a day. I spent last Wednesday and half of Thursday (yesterday) cleaning the whole day away. It was to catch up after lasping for a few days (notice I stopped after ‘day 3’). I must say I’m proud of myself, I so many things done, among them is getting my craft cupboard tidied up, and the stationery drawer cleaned! The room looks neat and spacious now! Yay!

Anyway, I wanted to show you these really wonderful food we had for our Easter lunch.

day 3 of spring cleaning

It’s almost 4.30pm and I’m just going to start my day 3 of spring cleaning. It’s been a busy day. I don’t even know why I call it a “spring” cleaning seeing that there is no Spring in Malaysia. It’s hot and humid all year round. We don’t have 4 seasons. We perhaps can say we have rainy season and not rainy season.

Some time in the year are much more wetter than other, while some time in the year can be slightly cooler than other time, the temperature ranges from 28 to 38 degree celcius. But don’t get me wrong, 28 degree celcius is still very warm (and humid)! It’s not like in Holland or Scotland where 28 degree celcius you can still be shiver without a light windbreaker.

Anyway, I have a secret. Actually I have a few secrets. I can’t share now because it is a secret… but I will soon. It’s some things I am making. Soon.

Meanwhile, I will leave you with this…

Mango Salad:

Pork + beef burger (it’s named Aussie burger):

This is from a shop named Andes (I think!) located in Aman Suria. More info soon.. as I plan to visit them again after Easter!

rambling.in.manglish.

Completely random and in manglish (malaysian-english).

I think most of you already know that google retired the Google Friends Connect for wordpress in Nov 2011, and in replacement created this thing Google+. So guess what yours truly here didn’t know about this until just a few weeks ago.

Yada yada yada… to cut the cerita (story) short… I lost all my network on my Google Friends Connect. See the box on the right of this site that says “my friends”… KOSONG!!!! (empty!!!)… my beratus-ratus kawans all lost… :((( don’t know where to find them back… macam mana oooo????

And because of that I created the FB pages lah… want to use the Google+ also don’t know if can trust or not… nanti kaput like the Google Friends Connect apa macam? So I think FB more stable and at least I know how to use it mah…

Google did say can import my network using API… but WHAT is API… api? fire? Ini yours truly mmg not savy in all this stuff so lantak lah I don’t want to try. Biar cam tu sj, I will use my FB to network.

So, this is what I made for dinner yesterday. Cinamon pork ribs (lots of sauce cos my family loves sauce, a true nyonya way of eating is to drench your rice in sauce! )Cinamon pork ribs

And okra in oyster sauce with lots of garlic.

All that cooking done while I baked my Kuih Lapis (layered cake). Bila senang nnt I post the recipe for the cake. Yo people, good night!
