can't hardly wait


Recommendations or reviews anyone? Fire away!

crayfish party!

I got a box of crayfish from IKEA (super affordable!) and figured why not share the joy and throw a crayfish partayy!! *does a rodeo lasso hand-gesture*

Everyone's thinks marriage has turned me into a domestic goddess but I actually do love to cook (since my UK hey-days). I just never had the opportunity or the facilities to bust the wok or fryer. I mean I'm no Jamie Oliver but hey I do a mean dish once in awhile (or at least I hope to think so!). Anyhooters, I've been obsessed with Nigella Bites lately and post-You Tube overload, I decided to whip us some Lawson feast:

You're looking at boiled asparagus, lemon-cheese pasta, baked maply syrup chicken in apple juice and...

.. IKEA broiled crayfish in existing dill sauce.

With Jumbleberry Pie for dessert! Served with heavy cream :)

Miss BellaBella brought back some Dove chocolate treats and we discovered there were special messages hidden in their foil covers. Sweet!

have a break

He’s young. He’s ambitious. He told you he is not ready to be married. And even though the both of you get along and have no issues with fidelity you feel empty inside ‘cos you’re dying to get married. Your married friends tell you, don’t rush it... enjoy your life detached from responsibilities. You refuse to heed advice from ‘the other side’ because what do smug married couples know?? What do they know about the insecurities of a 30-year old spinster? How can they possibly comprehend your void and loneliness when they have someone to come home to everyday.. someone to embrace them as they drift to sleep, someone who is their advocate and confidant, someone who listens about their daily-nothings? You look back on your dating history and shudder. It is not something you’re proud of and now you want to escape from what you feel are dark memories by creating a new album: the married collection. The pressure to settle down builds and without noticing it you sublimely drill the thought of it in everything you say and do. You sound almost deluded. He thinks the both of you should take a break.

What is this thing called a break?

It is a momentary pause in the relationship to re-evaluate your priorities that got shoved under the pillow or forgotten in a musky drawer. At 30 a break isn’t a break-up.. it’s just a break. And the beauty of a break is that you can wander about the forest and if you find that the chanterelles you were lusting after turn out to be poisonous mushrooms you can always return back to the toadstools. What I don’t get is why won’t you allow yourself a shot at happiness? If marriage makes you happy and not getting married makes you unhappy, then why won’t you go out and find someone who could and would.. make you happy. Or maybe you just enjoy being tortured ‘cos well some people do... yeah well sadist. Is it too hard to start over? Hey if you can learn how to work a new microwave or pick up a language you can always get to know a person.

I’m not saying this one isn’t gonna work. I’m saying if you’re both not on the same journey then you’ll always be travelling on parallel paths and it’s gonna be a long while before you meet in the middle. So take that break. Use it and if you don’t find what you’re looking for out there, perhaps what you were really searching for lied in what you had all the while.

Have a break. Have a KitKat :)

i'm in love with anna dello russo

... and her Piers Atkinson Hyper-cherry headband!!

Aaargh this invokes such fruity pleasure in me :O

During the fashion tour, many people asked me why I was wearing my CHERRY or WATER MELON hat. Why not?”

She's LEGEN... wait for it... DARY! LEGENDARY!

I told ADR that should she ever get tired of her hat I'd more than eager-beaver accept her hand-me-down... here's hoping *fingers+toes crossed*

what's on replay today?

I love this. I loved it ever since they opened in 'Sex and The City 2' and I love it even more now as they accompany me on my way to work at dawn.

Y'feel me??

So ironic that they sang it for a wedding even though it's the most melancholic and heart-wrenching song on earth...

"Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly go the days..."

chic pop market 5

Did any of you go to the Chic Pop Street Market hosted by Tongue in Chic the other day??

I was supposed to bring Miss KhaiKhai but she couldn’t make it so it was just Miss KosKos and me. I just love indie bazaars like this... what with everyone in quirky-kawaii outfits and style overload. I’ve actually been to the very first Chic Pop Market. They only had afew vendors back then and I missed most of the action as I arrived pretty late (from TI) and most of the stalls were packing to leave. What I really regret then was not purchasing a bell-sleeved silver Nurita Harith dress which was seriously da bomb! This time I was not going to let a gem go if there’s ever one.

It’s so fun to register at the TiC booth ‘cos there’s always SWAGs to cheer you up even if you can’t afford anything or can’t find something you like.

The first booth we popped by was Whisper’s Happy Overnights where it’s all about the gratis! You get a free sample of their overnight pad along with a pouch to keep it discreet.

The pouch of course is available for diy.. that’s where the streams of ribbons and pots of buttons come in handy and are eagerly rummaged through by crafters. I cannot sew so I couldn’t do much with my pouch. Bleh :P

I dropped by Sara’s booth: Zikkos. Remember Sara here? Isn’t she smashing in her neon pink dress from H&M?? ME LOVES IT big time!! Reminds me of my tribute to Christopher Kane.

Me likes the Playboy bunny rings but my chubby fingers couldn’t fit any of ‘em.

Miss KosKos spent some time at The Aura. You can create a personalized charm bracelet or necklace with their gazillion (OK I’m exaggerating) charms.

This is my favourite!

Oooh Hello Kitty at The Click Shop! But I do have enough cameras as it is. Now when I think about it... aiyaaa *regret*

I bought a ‘diamond’ ring at Soak Republic. It’s so rad!

Awesome tanks!

Where & Wear?

How about some decoden to prettify those dull whatevers?? Me likes her skirt!

I bought some g*d knows why. I figured I'd find a use for them someday. Get your stash at The Sticker Monster.

Last and never least the ultimate hidden agenda... a spree at Mimpi Murni! Miss KosKos said I practically emptied her booth. That's half not true! I can't help it if Mimpi gets me weak in the knees...!

Till the next Pop Chic Street Market!
