Furry patch

Bobbi likes to sit with her butt stuck up against the grilles of her cage resulting in fur bunches poking out :D

A Bobbi binky

An attempt to photograph Bobbi binkying. Really quite blurry but at least we can tell which way she is facing :D Hehehe!

A busy day!

Darlink went to watch the Australian Open today with his colleagues so I had to entertain myself for the day. Spent the afternoon baking a banana walnut & chocolate loaf and also made my first stuffed bunny. I am quite proud of that one! :D

Banana, walnut & chocolate loaf

Stuffed bunny

Mission impossible?

Here you see Bobbi bunny sitting on the 3rd floor of her cage. She likes to sit here to get my attention and pokes her head out of the gap to get head rubs. We always thought she would not be able to get out through that gap because it only measures 8cm wide but just now she did! She was excitedly trying to follow me around in her cage and somehow leapt out through the space! Then she gleefully ran around the house...:S

Strawberry & almond tarts

Just tried out a new recipe I saw in the Sunday newspaper magazine. These looked really yummy and they are too when you eat them warm from the oven! :D The sides of the pastry didn't stay up like they were supposed to though. I think it was because my cutter was smaller than 8cm.

* 1/4 cup almond meal
* 1 tablespoon plain flour
* 30g unsalted butter, melted
* 1/2 cup caster sugar
* 15 strawberries, hulled and halved
* 2 x 200g sheets ready-prepared shortcrust pastry, thawed
* unsalted butter, melted for brushing
* caster sugar, extra for sprinkling (optional)

Method - makes 10:
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Place the almond meal, flour, butter and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a bowl and mix to combine.
2. Place the strawberries and remaining sugar in a bowl and toss to coat.
3. Use an 8cm cookie cutter to cut out 5 rounds from each of the pastry sheets.
4. Spread the pastry rounds with 1 teaspoon of the almond meal mixture and leaving a 2 cm border, top with three strawberry halves.
5. Fold up the sides to partially enclose the strawberries. Brush the pastry with butter and sprinkle with the extra sugar.
6. Place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.

A quote

Saw this quote on TV just now - He who has a strong enough why can bear almost any how -- Fredriche Nietzche. Thought it made a lot of sense once you think about it.

Enjoying her new home

How she tries to get my attention...or maybe she is just happy to see me. :D

Giant rabbits

Received an email from an ex-colleague today with a link to news about giant bunnies. I get remembered whenever anyone sees rabbit-related news :)

Many me

Wonder why there seems to be 5 of "myself" on my Tag Friends....:S

A Bobbi pic

It has been a while since I've put up a Bobbi bunny pic. Our dear bunny came home from the bunny sitter (my nice colleague who agreed to bunny-sit her) 2 days after we came home. She was a little unsure of her surroundings at first but in a while she was flopping all over the floor again :D

Note her pretty eyelashes :D

She has also got some extensions to her cage. Bunnypapa built her a new floor so now she has 3 storeys to jump around on.

Happy New Year!

Another year has passed quickly by and it is now 2007. We spent the New Year countdown in my office photographing fireworks and not in the crush of people down in the city.

It's a rather quiet day here in the city but tomorrow life will be back to normal again for me. It will be back to work officially after more than a month of break! A new chapter for work as well because one of my colleagues (who has been a great help to me) has left the company and it will possibly be different without her around.
