Happy 21st BFF!

You know I would sing you a birthday song if I was at your party in NZ!
Hell. you know I would do more than that!:)
Happy birthday my dearest friend.
I love you way too much for words.

P.S Hope you like the present and the handmade card! :)
P.S.S If you have not received the parcel, :(, well, at least you can see snippets of the card here!

Simple mornings

I feel especially loved today :)
The bf bought me breakfast:)

I insisted the night before that he should buy me breakfast another day when he would not be deprived of sleep but he forgo-ed his sleep and turned up with a mountain of food:)
After breakfast, we watched my sassy girl and the poor boy was sooo fatigued but wanted to finish watching with me:)

I do not think he knows that my 'dream' is to be able to wake up next to my 'lover' and feed each other pancakes or scrambled eggs naked/clothed (doesnt matter) and well today he just kind of fulfilled part of it:) (even if it was not pancakes or scrambled eggs and we were both clothed-duh)

Although I have always secretly wished the bf was romantic and would have a surprise waiting for me at every corner, but on mornings like this, I realize i do not want a romantic bf but i just want him:)

Rainy cupcakes!

The weather has been sooooo erratic nowadays!
you wake up feeling superhot,10 minutes later, the rain just pours!

Anyway, just a short little post to complain about the rain and show you this lovely looking cupcake i bought at the arts walkway!

oh yeah. i squashed it abit!
i had to put it in my bad because of the stupid rain.
in case you cannot see it-its the left side, the hard icing kind of crumbled.
i thought it looked sooooo pretty! the lovely color gradient and all.
i came back and immediately googled about color gradient in icing only to find nothing:(
anyone who knows something about 'gradienting' icing, pleaseplease tell me!:)
the taste was disappointing:(
the choc cake was not moist nor choclately and the icing was wayyy too sweet:((
oh well, it looks really very pretty though!
and i guess cupcakes ARE supposed to look pretty if anything!:)

sigh.need to bathe and start on work!

food,books and friends


1. Sweets

Whenever NUS have their a mil and one bazaars at the forum, if i happen to walk by, i would definitely grab some sweets from bonjapan even though they are VERY expensive. I have found a new favourite! The soda kids candy which you see in the v first picture are fizzyyyyy and not too sweet- my kind of sweet! My favourite is the 'blue colored' one which is 'sprite flavour':) The last time bonjapan was here was last year i think and among the array of sweets/chocolate which i bought, the changing color sweet was the cutest. The sweets are shaped like a gingerbread man packed in purple packaging and i think i bought like 4 packs to give to my tution kids and the bf. Last but not least, i have 'discovered' the wonderful-ness of Daim sweets! To quote my sis: "wah lao, now then know got this sweet." ha. YES.


Just some cupcakes i made yesterday night and frosted today! they are rich chocolate cupcakes filled with chocolate-mint ganache topped with mint buttercream:) They were for the birthday boy JOHNNY and birthday girl YIBO! Happy birthday again to you two. Hope you guys had as much a great time as i did! Even though we ate freaking alot!seafood, b&j's and cupcakes?!?! Never again. i think i gained like 5 kg. ha. lucky no peking duck. oh! and i have quite a few left after giving 1 to yibo, 1 to hwanliang, 4 to johnny and 3 to the bf (GAT7), so i would be giving those to the people i am going to meet tomorrow!:)

1. toast catalogues

I love getting toast catalogues in the mail! The pictures are just lovely even though i cannot really afford anything in there. AND i am pretty cheapo. I will enter my address twice on the website just to get 2 copies. Hehe.

2. Haruki Murakami books

I know i really should stop proclaiming my love for his books but here i am again showing you my very small collection of his books. As i mentioned in the last post, i went to catch "Dinner with Murakami" at the substation and it was pretty awesome! I bought these 2 books! I had wanted to buy all of them but obviously they didnt have NETS and i did not have enough CASH. So 2 it is. Although my birthday is in JULY which is like months away,i guess it would not hurt if i started writing my wish list now..haha.This would definitely be on my wish list : Whole collection of Haruki Murakami books minus those 2 i have (duh). *HINTHINT


I love meeting up and catching up with friends whom i have absolutely no time for. Be it eating yuzu ramen and canele's cakes, grabbing dinner and Starbucks, pigging out on crabs and ice-cream and cupcakes, simple lunches (usually fish bee-hoon soup) at the deck or just talking about everything under the sun in the coziness of Fosters, it really makes me understand the meaning of how little things can bring about great happiness. i do not know if that makes sense but whatever. I guess i am also grateful (gasp!) for school assignments too for giving me a chance to talk to my grandparents:) i realize they are not that scary and very adorable after all.

Oh yes.Thank you Y, for giving me those little gifts, i really love it and the scent of le b. (bay) is awesome! i have been using it ALOT!

Finally. nothing really to do with food books or friends, i just "holed" my pocket by buying this:

Gawd. i really suck at saving money.

This is a very belated birthday post but...

I hope you liked the card i made and the present!:)
AND we will go have your birthday lunch/dinner soon ok?

This is the year of the 21st birthdays for me and speaking of which, I am so looking forward to your Hawaiian party Weini! :P
OK. Besides the fact that i have been busy essaying last weekend. yes. last minute work! (At least i finished in time to catch 'Dinner with Murakami' at the Substation:)) i had my nails painted. yet again in red. so no GAT the week before. And GAT last week was this:

Those are the haystacks the bf got.
Then i decided, they do not look very pretty.
And so...

(FYI. The teacup was not attempting suicide of any kind. Even though it very well might have since those haystacks were so cute! ok. lmao.)

Just in case you kind of miss my face. i cam-whored a bit i think on Tues night and here are the spoils:

(no makeup no makeup no makeup)

Right now, i just want to be in the middle of my TOAST catalogue cover.
Even though as you know, i cannot swim.
P.S I slept like 11hrs+2 and i am still sleepy. GAWD
