Hello! …

hello peeps! it’s been another long long pause since my last post in apr2013.

in between then and now : i fractured my wrist, made only a few bentos, made some cute sandwiches and baked for a charity donation drive, still obsessed and buying typewriters and other vintage stuff, got interested in cafe hopping (is it wise to buy an espresso machine just to do latte/coffee art?), started a collection of owl rings and pendants just because they are so cute.

below is a quick recap of the above and more, summing it up with my favourite photos!

my right hand was in cast for 6 weeks.

baked these (before i fell and fractured my hand) for a charity donation drive.

i love hello kitty! trying out fondant for ribbons and flowers. 😉

i love my kopitiam kopi and cappuccino but i love latte art more!!

my latest typewriter acquisition, a teeny robotic lookalike typer with glass keys.

diy manicure with nail stickers. hello kitty ones are my favourite. ;P

this is the same watch that tom hank wore in the da vinci code movie (2003). i am  totally in I love this fat-boy, pie-eyed Bradley Mickey watch (vintage, made in 1970s). this one is rare because mickey has purple hands.

i’ve been bitten by the baking bug again lately – this time, chiffon cakes! i had so many failures..sigh… my love hate relationship with chiffon cakes could probably fill a few blog posts! after 20 or more attempts (yes, 20 ~blush~, so if you failed 5 times, press on!!), i have better success rates now. phew! i’ve tried a few recipes but my favourite are  from cuisine paradise and small small baker.

love the soft, light and fluffy texture, recipe is without butter so healthier too! *wink . if only we can make them cute or bake them in hello kitty moulds…that would be soooo cool. hmm…possible? have anyone tried or came across?

my chiffon cakes are not the prettiest but i am working hard on it.  i am happy as long as the cake is standing tall and not khatek (collapsed when cooled).

i bought a (another) hello kitty puncher recently, another impulse guilty splurge! i’d like the idea having a hello kitty punched seaweed wrapping my sushi. 🙂

image

made rocket themed bentos per a media company request. they ordered  30 lunch boxes but cancelled the order last-minute.  wasted some effort and time.  a lesson learnt is to request for a deposit first. oh well…
