When life knocks you down you have two choices – stay down or get up.

rock buns

Mum just made rock buns a couple of hours ago.

They’re studded with mixed fruit. They’re also crunchy, crumbly, moreish and have a nice mouthfeel.

tower of brownies

Yesterday was my dad’s birthday, so my sister made him a little tower of brownies!

The pieces of brownies were cemented together with chocolate, and then dusted with icing sugar and star sprinkles.

And the best thing was that they tasted much better today! :D


So the PSLE results were released this morning.

Which reminded me of the day mine were released, way way way back in 1999. I can’t say that I remember that day with perfect clarity, but I can still remember much, if not most of it. All the Primary 6s had assembled in the hall, restless and excited. Teachers stood next to their classes. And parents waited anxiously outside. Everyone took a long time to quieten down.

A long tense suspense…… and then relief.

(Actually there was more suspense to come because there was still the release of the Secondary 1 posting results, which was still a month away. But that really is another story.)

But that was more than a decade ago! Goodness I’m getting old! :P

So the Lanvin for H&M collection was released in US and Canada on Nov 20, and the rest of the world, 23 Nov.

Naturally, massive chaos ensued.

Was waiting for parents at the void deck earlier this evening.

And then I saw a house lizard eat a bug for the first time in my life.

It was on a wall, and moved very quickly towards the fly, and suddenly swallowed it!

And its jaws vibrated very vigorously!!!

dotting the eyes

In July 2005 (I was in J2 then), Singapore Management University (SMU) moved (‘SMUve’, as they called it) from its original Bukit Timah location to its new campus in the city.

The move was going to be a pretty grand affair. Naturally, lion dance was to be part of the festivities. But SMU Lion Dance didn’t have enough people. So their coach, who also happened to be our coach, asked if any of us would like to help out, and a dozen of us did.

harry potter and the deathly hallows: part 1

Went to watch HP by myself yesterday afternoon. Watching movies alone can be extremely cathartic.

spoiler warning!!!


The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.

周伯通大吃一惊,道:“你……你……”过了半晌,才道:“你从前学过的么?”小龙女道:“没有啊,这又有甚么难了?”周伯通搔着满头白发,道:“那你 是怎么画的?”小龙女道:“我也不知道。心里甚么也不想,一伸手指便画成了。”随即左手写了“老顽童”三字,右手写了“小龙女”三字,双手同时作书,字迹 整整齐齐,便如一手所写一般。周伯通大喜,说道:“这定是你从娘胎里学来的本领,那便易办了。”于是教她如何左攻右守,怎生右击左拒,将他在桃花岛上领悟出来的这门天下无比的奇功,一古脑儿说了给她听。
