Rain rain go away

Normally you can see the walkway here.... now its all under water. That's how much rain there is!

Its been raining all night and all morning... in fact, all day!
On my way out this morning, I noticed that the area around my block was flooding already.
I like the cool weather, but I don't think I can say the same about the damp surroundings and slightly gloomy mood it brings.

Line in the sky

Woke up this morning and saw a strange sight in the skyline...
Although it was really blue, there was stretching right across the horizon, a black foggy line. How weird. I watched it slowly move upwards. then blur out...
Hope its not the haze lurking around...

New Kitchen

Oh yes, the kitchen was up and ready for quite a while.
Real glad the reno was over.
Here's some 'before-during-after' pictures of the revamped kitchen!

Tried out the new oven over the weekend and made a small batch of cinnamon cupcakes.

Kinda missed my good old oven a bit while I was baking. :S
I think it made the best cakes still.
The new one is ok, but I think its takes a little getting used to the temperature, timing and stuff. Anyway, the cakes turned out ok though! :)

Hazy morning

Hazy day...

A nice clear day!

Woke up to a hazy morning today.
PSI was 103 they said, but I thought it looked worse.
Here's a comparison on a normal clear day...
Looks bad eh? Wonder how long its going to last.... :S

How cute!

Over the weekend we went to get zoo supplies at the pet shop.
Look what we saw there that day!
Here's 2 month old Bubbles the little Shih Tzu!
He was sitting on the cashier counter enjoying all the attention.
Hehehe.. so cute, this tiny little fur ball! :)

Makes anyone feel like having one too! Hehe...

Dust! :(

Sigh... lately there's dust everywhere...
There's dust in the house and haze outside.
The kitchen and bathrooms are being renovated and we're living in dusty times now.
and just when you thought opening the windows would be good ventilation,
there you have bad haze outside...
Dusty days ahead! ><

Cuppy cakes

Decided to try making fancy cupcakes for a mid-autmn festival party that I was going to. Also, was inspired after having seen pictures of pretty cupcakes of late in magazines and online. It was fun decorating the little cupcakes and thinking of what to put on them and how to make them pretty. But its tough to make pretty decorations while having to stay off the food colorings and fancy colored bits. Hehehhe... :)

Anyways, there's nothing like baking up a good batch of cupcakes!
It might also be the last batch that I'll be baking with my trusty old oven. *sniff*
So that makes it all the more memorable.

Azaru Sabo

Have been wanting to try out the food here and finally got to last weekend.
I tried the Soyabean milk udon. Hehee... weird eh? But actually, it tasted quite good.

The soft ice-cream in the dessert was a bit too sweet, but i thought it was still rather yummy with the chewy rice dumplings and agar cubes. :P

I like looking at the plastic food they have out in the display at the front of the shop! everything looks so real and yummy... Hehehe... it kinda makes the real food they serve seem a little pale in comparison.

Illustration Friday- Skyline

Here's one for this week's topic, Skyline.
coincidentally, this is from a job I was working on this week for a TV program's publicity promotion at a music event this coming weekend. This portion which I've chosen to show, is cropped from the promotional poster.
I changed the color for this one from the original, coz I actually liked this colour combination better than the one that the client picked out in the end.

Oh yummy...

Oh look! A new flavour of Kit Kat for summer... Fruit Parfait.
I haven't tried it yet... but it sure looks yummy! :P

The Question

Yesterday he popped the question!
And now, it all seems a blur. In fact, at that moment it didn't even register what he said. Or at least I didn't seem to hear anything! Just remember looking at him down on one knee, holding the ring with that earnest look on his face... he was saying something... I turned to see the people nearby looking...

Ha! I should have whipped out my handphone and snapped a shot of him before I said yes!
Damn, why dun my brains work in times like that! :P
