Happy Chinese New Year from me and my flower arrangements!!! :D

Made them for my home…… aren’t they sweet? Simply love the colour scheme! :D

Arrangements: (from left) mini kumquats, red cockscomb and pink carnations;  purple hydrangea; and pink roses, purple eustomas and some greenery and berries……

Flowers: Tiong Bahru Market and Candy Floriculture (with a couple of items salvaged from what I made during my flower arrangement class  by Wonderland for Detailed Planners last Sunday, 26 January)……

Vases: Sia Huat (left and middle; they’re actually large drinkware) and Ikea (right)……

Special thanks to colleagues G and L, and friend M, for braving the madding crowds with me to purchase the flowers on Wednesday and yesterday respectively!!!

you only live once

I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.

great minds think alike

Had ten jiaozi for lunch at Tiong Bahru Market this afternoon. Bought them from a stall selling northern Chinese cuisine.

When I got home after work a few hours ago, I immediately asked my mum what she cooked. ‘In the oven,’ she replied.

So I went to the oven, opened the door, and lo and behold! Couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise when I saw what was inside……

It was a plate of mum’s jiaozi!!!
