no onions and pickles

Cheeseburger, fries and coffee.

i never forget to ask for cheeseburger without onions and pickles until today! i blamed it on my always-pre-occupied-with-work-stuff-and-no-room-for-other-stuff mind. Because of this, i am also becoming more and more oblivious to the things around me. Bad.

fresh green & yummy brown

Coffee, kiwi & raisin toast

i was at the printer’s place today when a stranger walked in and sat down on my laptop. i wasn’t mad at that instant but he started blaming me for leaving the laptop on the chair. It was a tiny room, it’s either the chair or the floor. i don’t blame him for not seeing it (even though it was a 15" laptop with full brightness set on the screen), but can’t he at least say sorry?

Now my laptop cover couldn’t close and open properly. Arrggghhhh!

dad’s birthday

Coffee and fried vermicelli.

i’m never good at numbers except for remembering a few birthdays. At the cake shop today, the lady asked how many candles do i need for the cake and i mumbled 1944... yes, i always had to do this little mental calculation when asked about age (even for myself!). She took a calculator and started tapping on the buttons. i thought she was doing the maths for me but when i reached home, i realised she had given me 4 big and 4 small candles. Haha!

Happy Birthday Dad!

xl’s birthday

Chocolate swiss roll, potato chips and coffee.

XL is one of my ‘oldest’ friends – not in terms of age, but of the number of years we’ve known each other. She was my classmate in Primary one, which means we knew each other when we were 7 years old. So, x years minus 7... Unbelievable! 

Happy Birthday, my dear friend! xx

goodies from penang

These green bean and water chestnut paste pastries taste so good i wish i had bought more.

left over from lunch

Beef pastrami in ciabatta, coffee

Current reads: The Lost Executioner by Nick Dunlop
i’ve been reading this book for weeks and each time i can only finished one or two chapters. The book reminds me of my visits to Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields two years ago. It’s just too disturbing and depressing to read.

nothing fancy

Steamed pumpkin kueh and coffee in a mini tin cup.

Mum made this for the first time and it turned out quite good. i’m sure we will have more of this and other kuehs in future.
