the little big sis

I've been meaning to post this up sometime ago but as usual, I forgot about the photos. It's the tennis masters, the year end sale, yadda yadda yadda...and I simply got distracted by the lovely UGG Bailey!!

So, anyway, I'm done selecting my favourite shots and as usual, I'm gonna share them with you here. This is Ash feeding (or attempting to) Em. Too cute :-)

Em seemed to have enjoyed her session with sis

Not enough

think my feet tastes as good...if not better

there are 2 of us

yes, there are.

and, make that all the drive me kakakaraizzzzeeee!!!

And if you think you think that you can run away from home at 16 to 'find myself" or move out of the house at 18 or get married at 21....have a kid by the time you're 22. Although, I must say that the idea of me being a GLAM-MA at such a young age sounds very tempting...but, clearly, you don't know your mama well enough because...

You will have NONE of the above. It's payback time honeys. I carried you for 9 months in my belly and it took me a combined total of 2 days to get both of you out so I can breath, not have heartburns and get rid of my big fat arse.'s not so easy for you to leave me. You are going to stay in this house, teman your old folks till we are 6 feet underground.....*evil laugh*....

See...I told you, I am kakakakraizzzzeeee!!! *evil laugh...again*..

a page a day

My very first attempt at creating photobook pages for EMily's 1st year album. Hmm...what happened to Ash's photobook? I'm ashamed to say that it's still not done yet because even though we do not have a rackmount lcd, I am still hooked on the tv!!

What happened was that the past couple of days, I've been frantically selecting and processing photos of Emily. And this afternoon, I took one of Emily's finished image and created the page you see above. You can call it a prototype of some sort. So, what do you think? I do plan on creating one (or more) page a day but as always, we'll see how it goes cos as you all know, I'm not very good at keeping up with my urm..resolutions.

Well, you have all weekend to think about it..heheheh...kidding!

Be good and you guys have a good weekend soon!

Lil Em

I can't believe it myself but this little girl is getting cuter by the day. Of course, I am only saying that because she's my child. Surely I have to be a little bias. hehehe...No, really she is the cutest thing...hahah...there I go again!

Anyway, this collage of photos were taken a couple of weeks back. Pardon the lighting and all but really....seriously...don't you think she's super duper cute??!!! with sugar coating on top??!!

Ok ok..I better stop, lest you stop visiting this site :-)

yummy chili prawns

I am going to do something here that has never been done before *gulp* (pardon the lighting in the photo, my light fixtures wasn't as good as I thought it was).

Lately, I've been surfing recipe/food blogs, sites and whatnot's. The reason is because I, this totally noob cook, have been slaving behind the kitchen lately and I need more variety dishes. And, believe you me, my "cooking" list is getting longer by the day (will tell you all about it in another post).

And so, today, I tried out something new (yet again). Surprisingly, it turned out tasting really good. The "new" is the chili prawns you see above. We had them for dinner and thankfully for me, it was a hit.

Also, I'm particularly happy because it's really simple to make and the dish is so versatile in the sense that, you can have it as part of your main meal or as an appetizer if you're throwing a party. I am pretty positive that this will go down really well with beer :-)

I am all about the simple. Simple but tasty.

So, what's this about me 'doing something different' on this site. Well, I am going to share with you this simple recipe to this dish!! I can't believe it myself. wayyyyyyyy!! But, yes, it's true folks, better believe it.

You'll need prawns (duh!). Don't remove the shell entirely. What I did was, I left the tail-end bit of the shell intact.

Marinate : chili powder
chopped garlic
chopped fresh red chili
salt (to taste)

leave it in the fridge for about 20 - 30 minutes and then, pan fry it (or if you have a grill, just go ahead and do that).

That's it. Easy. Now, just sit back and enjoy it with a glass of beer..:-)

another header change

Ahhh...this new one is something that shouldn't be.

Huh? Allow me to explain. If you remember, when I started to upload my own headers to this blog, the size usually covers the entire header space. But, for this particular image, I couldn't get it to fit no matter how I did it. I tried cropping left right and centre but it just didn't look right somehow. And so, I had to improvise with a note with handwritten fonts.

Then, I got carried away. I loved the font so much, I wanted it all over the place hahah...buuuutttt, luckily for you guys, I settled for just the post title..*snigger*.

I am almost afraid to ask you what your thoughts are (about the new header)..So, what are they? hehehe...

You'll get me re-arranging my blog template once a while. Especially when I get bored looking at it myself. Oh and incidentally, the "hands" are Ash and Em's :-)

color - part II

If you'll recall my recent post about me making the "homemade play-dough" for Ash. I only too the photos of the dough but didn't post up photos of what eventually became of the dough.

Well, without further ado, here are some pics of..the time where both father and daughter had fun playing with those ewwy and gweey dough...

Ash's favourite cartoons :

Gimme Mouse (the way Ash says it)

Quite honestly, I feel that the father may have had more fun than the daughter..;-)

We were busy the past weekend. Well, apart from our usual, getting-the-family together, it was my baby sister's graduation ceremony. It's funny how these things work here -- having graduated months ago but the ceremony's being held now. Anyhow, it was great fun for all of us, including lil Em.

Here she is with her urm..cap (I don't remember what they are called LOL). In a way, she's "graduating" herself. How's that so?

Well, for starters, she has started solids. Amazingly, it wasn't so difficult starting her off. And she's beginning to find her own back support. She's gonna "sit" anytime soon.

Most importantly, she'll be turning 6 months in a couple of days!! Imagine - 6 months?? Where did time go?? I can still remember how it felt when she decided that it was fun while it lasted in mommy's tummy and came out that fateful night. Seriously..I can feel the pain...even as I type.

I realise I have been slacking re : blog updates and what-nots. I am. I'll remember to put a note for the coming new year's resolution - to blog more!
