Old Recipes

Can't believe I used to be so conscientious about writing down whatever I used to cook and bake last time. Lol.

Doing Well

Hahahaha I just realised I typed the phrase "doing well" a lot in the last couple of blog entries.

In A Gushy Mood

The grasshopper makes me so happy. I feel so blessed to have him in my life. :)

Blogging.. Or Rather The Lack Of

I have noticed that I blog much less frequently than I used to and I guess it's only natural since I'm much more preoccupied living and enjoying my life these days.

An update on how things are: my relationship with the grasshopper continues to grow strong, despite the long distance between us. He'll be coming over for Christmas and then we'll head over to Krabi to countdown to the new year. In fact, all the details are being finalised right now as I type this entry out. Tanu and Soubhagya will be joining us as well, so I hope we have a blast.

My family is doing well, and I'm now an aunt again to baby Gideon. My sister-in-law went through quite an adventure, and I'm glad that everyone is doing well. My parents are doing well, but I do wish we could spend more time together, maybe for a holiday. My sis and Mark finally got married, and she will ne moving to the States some time next year. :( I'm sure I'm going to miss her.

Work is fine. I've been enjoying what I do and do not feel that sense of utter reluctance to go to work every morning so I can't really complain. Have a good boss and fun colleagues, and the working hours are fantastic.

Went for my fair share of holidays this year and renewed my travel insurance haha. Been traveling quite a fair bit for work too. I'll be heading to Bangalore for Diwali, and I'm so excited!

The girls and I still try to make it for our weekly walks around McRitchie and now Ching and I have found a new thing to do. We've tried walking home from the office and I must say it's quite enjoyable! We get to pass by a number of interesting sights along the way and also get to eat at some really awesome eateries too. Slurp.

Anyway, I guess my point is that I've been too caught up with life and everything that is going on around me and I haven't had much time for this little piece of online space. Ah well, as long as I'm happy. ;)

Why You Shouldn't Sleep At 7.30pm

Woke up at 12.30am and four hours later, I'm still wide awake. I guess I have just effectively screwed up my sleeping cycle.

All Set

Yaaay! The grasshopper has downloaded Whatsapp on his phone and now we can sms each other for free! So with Truphone for our calls, and Whatsapp for our sms - we're all set.

Anyway, I'm heading to Bangalore on 4 November over the Diwali weekend, and I'm so excited. Fireworks, here I come! I hope I don't blow off any body parts though. Heehee.

The grasshopper was originally supposed to come to Singapore this month, but with flights and hotel costs so high, we decided to save the money so we can splurge a little on our year end holiday. Whee!

I'm in such a good mood now thinking about it. :D

Aah brinner. The person who came up with the idea of having breakfast for dinner is a genius.

Got back home last night and didn't have anything to eat. I wasn't feeling to cooking something complicated so decided to open a can of Heinz baked beans and whipped up a portion of scrambled eggs. Ate that with two slices of bread and a glass of soy milk and I was a happy camper. :)
