That Yellow Flower

Can’t help staring at that pic on my blog. Even when I was browsing for different blog themes yesterday, this one caught my attention in a way the others didn’t. It wasn’t because it was the most aesthetically pleasing per se…but something about the photo spoke to me. And now, after having made it my blog theme, I’m trying to understand why it struck a chord with me. Here’s what I’ve come up with: On my 18th birthday, my mother gave me []

I’ll be looking forward to that coming from you. *grin*

Welcome!

Hello there! Welcome to my new (probably temporary), very humble, blogabode. There are more links on my blog now, including some of my favourites. More may still be added over time. If you’re thinking that this new template looks very similar to my old one you’d be correct :P I couldn’t find anything I liked better among the templates at WordPress and I am unable to customize or download other templates unless I first find a webhost. So, if you know of []

New 'Home'

Hello and welcome to my new blogabode! Thanks to Hui Xuan (for recommending WordPress & negimaki.com) and to Steve Caturan of Negimaki (who gave my blog a new home in record time), my blog has a new and improved home. I’ve added some of my favourite links to my blog, as well as new access to photo albums. At least for more general photos now, you won’t have to sign in to Snapfish to view them. :) Please remember to update your []

Get Thee A Self-Cleaning Oven

After inviting HM to roast a whopping 16lb rib roast in my kitchen yesterday, I decided it was high time I tried out the self-cleaning function of my high-tech oven. What a joy it was to behold its interior this morning after having it self-cleaned. All those sticky, stubborn gravy/fat/goodness-knows-what-else spatter and stains were GONE. All that was left were some ash that was easily wiped off with a damp kitchen towel. Amazing. Unfortunately I couldn’t leave the oven racks inside during []

I Won't Grow Up

Today was MSSA’s Games Day, and the theme was Reverie…university undergraduates fought it out in Pepsi-Cola 123, Zero Point and more. Feet were flying, limbs flailing, people yelping and screaming while stomping others feet and/or balloons in glee. For an afternoon, it seemed we were all 10 yrs old again, and boy was it fun! I played five-stones for the first time since maybe 1990. And it was amazing to see how high some people can still jump at zero point (hats []

To A Forever Friend

Received a belated birthday card today from Yinwei…and it’s so funny that the first line was “Every year I always want to send a card to you on time, but every year I am late =) I am really sorry, but I know you won’t be angry right? =)” You’re right, Yinwei…I’m not! I wasn’t expecting anymore birthday cards this late (ha ha)…so your card really made my day! The card you chose this time for some reason reminded me of those []
