Day 27.Lunch #JANphotoaday

A day behind but this was for yesterday's post...

Today's  Photo A Day Challenge  is Lunch.

My due date is almost here and so I've been trying out some chinese confinement dishes for when the time comes. This is the Fried Rice with Ginger and Egg and it's suppose to be one of the first solid food that I have to eat after I have given birth. It's suppose to get rid of the "wind".... or the bloated feeling you get when you give birth. It's just fried ginger in sesame seed oil with a 1 egg Omelette and a bowl of cooked rice seasoned with a bit of salt but since it's Chinese New Year I added a bit of chinese lap cheong (sausage) for extra flavour.

Today's  Photo A Day Challenge  is Something You Made.

Something I made last night and just playing around with my bag design that I've been working on. I couldn't figure out what to do with the handles but I think this will do. I might use it for a baby bag or try to tweak it again.

Day 23.Something Old #JANphotoaday

Today's  Photo A Day Challenge  is Something Old.

I struggled a bit with this one trying to find a photo of Something Old. I mentioned the challenge to hubby today about trying to find Something Old and the first thing he said was not to take a photo of him!! lol 

Anyway I did manage to find something old and it's this Fisher Price toy which believe it or not is 27years old. It's been handed down from my second brother when he was a baby. It's traveled halfway across the world and back again from the time we lived in Holland to Sydney and here in Malaysia. My mum had stored it away and brought it back out when I had my first born. I guess it goes to show that Fisher Price makes toys to last or it did 27 years ago!!!

Day 21. Reflection #JANphotoaday

It's a day late but Day 21:  Photo A Day Challenge  is Reflection.

I had thought of reflecting upon all the photos that I've taken for this challenge but since I've only just joined I decided to take this photo for Reflection.

I've had this beautifully carved wooden frame mirror for about 12 years now. It's a other half of a pair that my mum gave to me. It's on the wall by the hallway and gets a little dusty now and then but something that is special to me.

My one day dress.

I got this lovely dress for Christmas from hubby and it fits perfectly so I was inspired to come up with a pattern to make another one with some batik that I had kept for something just like this. It was a pretty simply design and just had to take in the measurements and allow for the seams but for my pattern and had to included enough fabric for french seams... 

so ta dah ... my one day dress that took about 3 hrs to make from drafting to sewing and it still fits over my bump.

Day 16. Morning #JANphotoaday

Today's Photo A Day Challenge is Morning.

My mornings usually start around 5.40am but today I got to sleep in because my older boy hasn't been feeling to well so I kept him in this morning but I woke up this morning to find my youngest at the foot of my bed snuggled up with a pillow all sound asleep.

Goodbye 2011 and hello to a new 2012!

Goodbye 2011 and hello to a new 2012!

Oh what a year 2011 has been for us. A year that started out with a sad goodbye to our daughter on her journey half way across the world to further her studies overseas. Sad not to be together as a family but also knowing that there's so much to look forward to in her own journey of discovery as a young person embarking on the next step of her education, making new friends and having a chance to live with our family in a beautiful country. I really miss her but I just want the best for her. I know she's been having the time of her life and I'm just so happy to be able to talk to her and share her new life and that just makes me the happiest mum in the world to know she's doing okay.

Well that would be one of the main changes in our lives over here but we were soon to discover an unexpected surprise after we had settled down back to our old routines... a new addition to our family... a new baby due this new year 2012 in February. A complete shock for us all but a welcome new addition to our lives. So in less than 6 weeks from now I'll be able to introduce our little one :)

So it's a hello from me again for 2012 and hoping to stay in's been a while but I'm back again.
