Dark chocolate M&M

I spotted these today. They must be quite new or I just haven't been paying attention at the chocolate areas in the supermarket.


Beer education day

Today was a fun day at work. No real work but being educated on the beers in our company. Really drinking on the job. Hehehe! We got to taste 12 beers and I even have a favourite beer now :D Always thought beer was just beer and wine is probably better but there are a couple I would drink again if I have the chance.

The Hoegaarden White that we tried was yum! There are hints of orange and coriander that makes it different to other beers. There is also fruit beer that has morello cherries infused called the Belle-Vue Kriek. Beer does seem less boring now.

I found 2 more new Caramel Corn flavours yesterday - sweet potato and a milk one. :D Woo hoo!

Ladybug prototype

Developed a ladybug softie today from the ball pattern. I used plain fabric in case it didn't work out but it actually turned out quite well I thought.

Guess what will come next?

I thought I would try to make a 3D shape this time so I tried sewing a ball. I'm now in the process of a new softie. Guess what it is?

A new chapter

Today is the last day of my long holiday from work! The past months have been great! I've got to hang around and do whatever I want when I want to and watch people go to work and not have to be part of that. Well, it is time to get back to normal life and go out to earn $$ again. It's sort of a bittersweet feeling.

Furniture day

We went to a sale of 1940s & 50s danish furniture today. There were quite a lot of nice stuff (which I know someone would love). We were so tempted to get this table. It's a rosewood coffee table with tiles inlaid on one corner. We spent so long deciding and left in the end with the "if this is meant for us, it will still be there next week" thought. I hope it will still be there...:S

Lovely days

Subsequent to the bleary Sunday we had, the past few days have been quite lovely.

Fluffy clouds and blue skies

Rainbow sunsets

Hello Rosie!

Take three of an attempt to make a stuffed babushka doll. It was good embroidery practice as well.

Woo hoo!

Running home after having fun

A new bunch

3 new bunnies stuffies! Some of them were sold at Mikes! Hooray!

Scary weather

This was the wind blowing over a puddle outside on the balcony. The rain probably accumulated overnight.

There was really scary weather this morning. I thought it was about the worst wind I've seen. Although there wasn't very heavy rain, the wind was SO STRONG. I could feel the building vibrating. We didn't dare go out to church even.

We managed to make it out for church in the evening when the wind eased. Got this giant bag of M&Ms from Big W. :D

High-speed shutter shots

Decided to try out the high-speed shutter function on the camera on Bobbers this morning. Every morning as soon as someone walks near the balcony door, she gets all excited and starts dashing all over the place. The repertoire includes running around in circles, dashing into her cage, playing with the fleece hanging there frantically, dashing out again, running in circles again and flopping upside down. It's a joy to watch but very hard to photograph.

Here are some attempt to catch her "at work".

Leaping out of her cage. This is the best action picture I have. Pity it is not clear at all. I was on the other side of the glass.

Leaping out - Take 2

Running back into cage

Playing with fleece

Oooh! I need a rest!
