Nip, Knead and Nibble

July seems to be a month of celebrations, festivities, homecomings and farewells. Usually what that means is that there’ll be a feast! An ongoing, perpetual feast for this month particularly. Dinner parties, tea parties and lazy weekend lunches… It’s a dinner party at ours last night and we made homemade pizzas and chicken wings. Decked […]

Taking a closer look at our trash!

Believe it or not, since the introduction of recycling bins in our kitchen, we have just been constantly surprise (and appalled) at the mounting recyclable waste accumulated over time. Almost every product we buy off-the-shelf has an element that can be recycled.  Everything from plastic wrappers, plastic bottles or cups, old newspapers, cereal boxes, juice […]

Our Christmas tree makes its debut

One of many things I love about Christmas is setting up the tree. There’s something warm, magical and fuzzy about it. With Christmas jazzies playing at the background, the entire room just evolves into a big sparkle! Perhaps it was the memories I grew up when setting up the Christmas tree. Either mom or dad […]

Now the porch has an array of natural beauties to greet us.  We had initially thought of transferring our sprouting brinjal plant into another pot, hence we needed more soil.

We got cow spots!

I remember a conversation Sarah and Terence had a long time ago on MSN. Sarah: Eh, Ter choose one. Cow spots or zebra stripes? Terence: What are you talking about? Sarah: Just choose one! Terence: Cow spots. The conversation was left hanging and Sarah went offline. When Terence told me about the weird chat he […]

Exercising our green thumbs

We adopted a new hobby last weekend. We visited a nursery in Section 17 thinking of buying a plant for my office space. We ended up with 2 packets of soil, fertilizer, brinjal seeds and a pot of daisy. There’s always a first for everything – this was our first try at gardening. I’ve heard […]

A peek into our habits and lifestyle

Busy busy busy! I’ve been writing a lot these days, staring at the computer for many hours, planning for upcoming projects and multi tasking between current projects. While exhausting my brains, I try very hard to maintain 8 hours of sleep a day, eating lots of fruits and veggies and exercising regularly. Thankfully I’ve not […]
