it starts with a green ribbon


Its thursday! (:

After 3 continuous nights of working late late and late, I finally decided that it is time I will knock off on time today.Work can never be finished.

But after knocking off on the day, it puts me in a delimma.. cos it is too early to go home, and I'm not used to it! So I drifted around and bought myself a deep green hair pin, which triggered my camwhore photos, because

1) I haven't camwhored for a long time ( a girl should take more photos when she is young, i know right!)
2) i was too lazy to drag my lazy bones to shower
3) I was watching TV with my dad
4) and that means family time

Which allows me to be excused for not going for a timely shower :p

Knocking off on time means I have time to upload my random shots for the week (:

Today was a fruitful night, spending quality time with my dad, playing draw something, watching teevee, and laughing at him for not having a timely shower.

Its in the genes, i know right!

*totally exploiting my friend's pet phrase; I know right!

when the food greets you

Good morning sunday morning!

A backdated post over the weekend.
Couldn't sleep late despite is a sunday morning. Sniff.
Due to the obedient bones that woke me up by 8plus

And so, an impromptu breakfast morning at Chong Pang.
There was an overload of food, with white fried carrot cake (cos the brother insisted the large portion to be ordered-guys just don't listen eh), chee cheong fan (which wasn't tasty cos the skin was too thick and the sauce was diluted and not savory enough) and chwee kuey (which the brother ordered too much). Dad satisfied himself with a healthy diet of fish porridge.

Oh and there was the sugar cane juice. How long have I not taken it! I don't remember.
It must have been ages such that my brain cells decided to let it diffuse out of my brain.

Food wasn't fantastic, but its the company that is (:

2,578km apart

It's his first birthday since we first got together 4 months ago.
but though he is 2,578 km away,

happy birthday love (:

and tomorrow would be our

felices los cuatro, meses!

I used to not understand how couples want to meet everyday.
I used to ask my guy friend: don't you get sick of it?
and he replies: no

and i'll go: how come?

But now I can understand (:

Can't wait for 8pm tmr,
cos, we will no longer be 2,578 km apart

crabs.spagetti.and an ancient teapot

Flower crabs, steamed with ginger, garlic and finished with some chinese wine

and isn't that teapot really ancient.

Love the handle, its as if it has been teleported over from previous centuries

How has your week been!

Reminiscence of the past

Our old printing shop. Remember those days where dad parked his car along the road and put in coins into the machine for parking, the coffeeshop where I bought barley sweets from, the giant drain across the shop that I had problems crossing when I was young, the GINOMOUS printing machine surrounded with stacks and stacks of paper, that narrow flight of staircases to the 2nd floor which I was always afraid of falling of, and the super old school phone which winds at grandma's pace back to the starting point at each turn of number

Old school chocolate biscuits

Very innovative way of tying hot tea and coffee 

Angry bird

A recent short trip back to malacca reminds me of the childhood memories when I was young.

Its so amazing how time passes so quickly and everyone has grown up now.
The old printing shop has been sold and replaced with the new little nonya shop,
but memories stay

It's still quite amazing that the old provision shop near my cousin's place is still there, and still looking the same. For more than 20 years

oh i have aged
