Chocolate chips scone with butter, coffee

Had the most annoying dream ever this morning. i was with a group of friends (they are all nice people in real life) but in the dream they became very arrogant, selfish and uncooperative. In the end, none of the voluntary work that we were supposed to do was completed. i woke up feeling super pissed. Duh!

i’m back

Peanut butter on raisin bread, coffee

Hello! i’m back from my Nepal and Central Java trip and to this much neglected blog. Will try to blog about my trip in my other blog if time permits (and before that i think i might need to finish Trekking Mount Rinjani Day 3 first, that was in June!). i’ve got 6 projects on hand to work for now and November. Wish me good luck!

all that pandan cake

3 p.m. breaks has been around for about 4 years now and i suddenly have this thought of whether i’ve incidentally took any images that might be exactly the same. Well, not so much as in 100% exact but based on the probability of the same type of food and crockery used at the same time, it is possible. And so i did a search for today’s break, pandan cake, on 3 p.m. breaks.

There they are, a total of 12 pandan cake breaks since 2009, some plates or mugs are the same but they are never the exact combination. Good to know that i haven’t been repeating myself. Yet.

colour blocks

Pandan cake, coffee

i’ve been eating more than before recently... but i think that’s because i’m exercising a lot more now and not that i am being gluttony... ok but why does it sounds like i’m trying to convince myself?

French toast, coffee

So hot today i thought i was going to faint from the heat just now.

Tuesday, 16 April 2013


Tuna toast, pear, coffee

i’ve been thinking of my much neglected (other) blog recently and thought maybe i should start updating again now that i’m not that busy. One of the reasons why i stop updating was also because Blogger once again changed their template/setting and messed up my layout. i was contemplating whether to migrate to some other blogging website then and ended up stop blogging totally.

It’s been 5 months since i last updated but i have no idea where to start... and i know the longer i put it off the more difficult it will be to pick up again. Well, we’ll see...

last year

Chips, chee cheong fun (steamed rice roll) with pork floss and chilli, coffee

Finally did my accounting (i have no choice since income tax filing deadline is very near) and realised that i only worked for about 6 months or less in total last year, mostly from June onwards. Meaning i had been busy with a lot of non-work stuffs. How fun!

one a penny two a penny...

Hot cross bun, coffee

“Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns!
One a penny two a penny, hot cross buns
If you have no daughters, give them to your sons
One a penny two a penny, hot cross buns”

How many of you sang this song when in nursery? i probably didn’t understand... or didn’t bother to think about the meanings for half of the songs that were taught then. Anyway, many of the nursery rhymes have strange lyrics (especially the chinese ones). For example this song, does it mean that if i have daughters, then the sons won’t get to eat it? Or why can’t i eat the buns myself, or give them to my grandma or my friends instead? 

Alright ignore me, i was just spouting nonsense and i blame it on my headache.

i just googled this song and guess what? It says on Wikipedia: “this song is performed to summon satan”. 
Yeah you’re right.

sweet like ice cream

Curry chicken bun, coffee

i guess if life is just sweet like ice cream, it would be boring and dull. So i would say it’s okay to feel troubled some time... furthermore, if you have not tasted bitterness, you probably wouldn’t know the taste of sweetness after all.
