Did everyone have a good holiday? I was back in my hometown for Christmas, to celebrate with my family. As usual we would put all our presents under the Christmas tree.

The haul this year

My nephew received this activity book from my brother. So I was flipping through the book and found it very interesting! It teaches kids to make crafts, paper planes, friendship bands, origami and so on. As my nephew still needed some guidance on how to make the crafts, I decided to make some for him.

I started off making some airplanes and then after that turned to make some origami animals. Started off with this crab. A song from South Park comes to mind which goes like this: 'Crab people, crab people, taste like crab, talk like people'.


My masterpiece, minus the eyes and colour

I remember folding this one at school last time. The jumping frog. It hops in front whenever you hold your finger on the frog's back and then slide your finger off.

Ta-da! My jumping frog

Pretty interesting huh?

Ready for Christmas

After weeks of scouting and shopping, I have my presents all wrapped and ready to go!

I was at Toys R Us the other day to buy my presents, so I was watching how the staff was wrapping my presents. I went home to try to imitate......but failed! There goes any chance of me being a present-wrapper-person..... Oh well.

Here's to wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Cakes these days...

Have you seen the extravagant birthday cakes these days?? The younger you are, the more awesome the cake is. I attended my niece Cheyenne's first birthday last month and her cake was so 'woahhh'.

Here, let me show you my first birthday cake. Big and round with a huge '1' on it. Though some people have their cakes shaped as the number.

Now here's Cheyenne's cake. So detailed and pretty.

Cravings for Sizzling Steak

One fine evening, me and the bf were craving for a nice juicy sizzling steak. This was not long after having one at The Ship (forgot to take photos of that). After some scouting around, we settled on Victoria Station.

We ordered the escargot as our appetizer and both had the sizzling steak. The escargot came with lots of garlic piled on top and it sure was yummy! The steak was.....sizzling! It was not as tasty as the one we had at The Ship and the sauce was slightly tangy. But nonetheless, satisfied our cravings for sizzling steak. MmmmmMmmm...

Here's a better look at the snail

A closer look just in case you couldn't see

The sizzling steak!

I don't get it though, why must sizzling steaks be served with tomato? Sorry, not a tomato fan here.

More cheap thrills

Few months back, I posted up about some cheap thrills we indulged in. Well this month we (as in the bf) indulged on a few more. :D

We have been visiting Toys R Us quite a lot recently, and if you noticed there are a few 'capsule stations' in front of the store. The bf will be eyeing the machines each time we exit and would then succumb to try his luck on the capsule station. He would make a beeline for the Dragon Ball ones.

First off, we got Bulma and baby Trunks (Ok, so I had to ask the bf for all their names). Let me tell you, this is one mean looking baby.

Cracked the egg


Even in the manga he's mean!

Next time we were there, we got Goku (in a different form) and Piccolo. I found Piccolo's pink-reddish parts of his skin a bit 'geli'. Looks as if he has some flesh eating bacteria or skin disease going on there. We tried to mismatch the bodies and limbs, but turns out they only fit the correct character. Bah!

Disembodied parts

Piccolo: I Choose You!

Goku ready to fight

And then today, the bf went happily again (without me!) to get more figurines. He got Frieza and another bigger figurine of Goku together with Kamesennin.

All pinky


Bigger eggs costs more

Now we got a whole collection of Dragon Ball characters. Got them all lined up in front of our Gundam characters.
