At this moment, it is unsure how long I will be in Singapore this time around. If I can get all my work done by Thursday then I can leave for home on Friday but if that is not possible, I think I would have to spend the weekend there as well.

tartlet class

Looking forward to a tartlet making class

I hate travelling over the weekend as the number of cars going into Malaysia, even though I will be on the second link, is horrendous over the weekend. It’s as if, all Singaporean escape to Malaysia during that time causing the coach that I’ll likely be on to be stuck in a massive traffic jam. I had the same experience twice and like they say, once bitten twice shy right. I mean a 10minute ride can last as long as 2-3hours and I don’t think I want to go that that torture! Yeah I can probably watch a movie on my phone or day dream of a fantastic spain holiday  sightseing soaking in all the wonderful things that I’m sure I can find in Spain while the coach go through the jam, but I rather spend the 3hour in Singapore doing something else. My BFF, who is a fantastic baker, is having a class on tart making session on Saturday so I reckon I can attend that one. It would make a more fantastic blog post then a 3hour jam right?

Holiday Deals are popping up everywhere, in my email, twitter stream and even my physical mailbox. It’s like the whole world is telling us to go for a vacation (lol). From overseas trip to local trip, all the locations and prices are definitely tempting and making me heady with all the choices. I also just found that the vacation spot of my dream is also having a special promotion next month!

Unfortunately, although we did plan a trip for March since it coincide with my birthday and our wedding anniversary (12years!), I just don’t think that it’s feasible now. Something personal just popped up and it seems that I have to make another trip back to Singapore to get it settled tomorrow. Then when I returned next week we got to bring Vievie, who has gone into heat last week, to the vet to get her spayed, That plus recovery would set us out till just about the end of March.

Anyway, I am definitely not complaining as things just happens and I believe it’s happening for a reason. I just got to believe that dream vacation is gonna materialized very soon and just thinking about it is making me smile from ear to ear!

sexy lingerie

Soooo Sexy!!

Valentine’s Day may be over but womens lingerie always make great gift for your loved one. Whether you are the giver or the wearer, a hot piece will surely set the mood for that romantic moment.

Speaking of lingerie, check out the Lingerie Diva for some awesome pieces below USD25. I’m eyeing a few pieces myself. After all, next month is an extra special month for me and Azwaj 🙂

giftFebruary is going fast and March is approaching and though it will be my birthday and anniversary month, I am not expecting any anniversary or birthday gifts this year from Azwaj as I already got my awesome gift last December. It is of course my super wonderful Samsung Galaxy Note. Because of this wonderful gadget,  I no longer need a calendar this year as I am making full use of its notes features to keep keep track of all my jobs and tasks. As my eyesight is also failing in my “old” age, I am so loving the huge screen which makes everything so easy to see.. lol!

Loving my advance present for sure.. Thanks Azwaj!

chandelierNow that mommy has gone home, it’s just me, Azwaj and the kitties once again and time to get back to work (vacation mode over.. boohoo). It’s raining now and once again my laundry day is pushed back yet another day. It’s just as well I guess, I am in no mood to handle the massive load and I desperately need to get more hangers so I can get them out to dry.

In the meantime, I just want to switch on the small chandeliers in the living room, make myself a cup of my favorite coffee and catch on some tv watching. Speaking of tv watching, need to remind myself to call Astro on Monday as the decoder seems to have a life of its own. It sort of turned mute on us each time the show gets interesting causing me and mom grief when we were watching a tv drama the other day. I keep having to softly knock the decoder so that the sound will come on again…. lol.. me and my knocking right? (well if it works…).

Anyway I love the chandelier lighting in the living room because I can dim it to as low as I want. You know me and darkness. At least this way I can enjoy watching tv but still with a little illumination.

Have a great weekend all!

Women and jewelry always go hand in hand. I don’t know about you but I always love a little bling bling on my neck, fingers, ears and wrist. Sometimes a plain outfit can shine with with the right jewelry or accessories making you a hit at any event.

diamond ringWhile a lot of ladies opt for new pieces of jewelry with the latest design to add to their collection, sometimes vintage jewelry can really make a statement too. Some of the vintage jewelry online that I found screams history and so gorgeous that I will definitely consider if I had the money.

Take this piece for instance, the “Embraceable You Diamond Engagement Ring”. This ring mount dated back to 1935 and has been lovingly preserved for its next owner. The description for this piece is “It is set with an H color brilliant cut diamond, with VS2 clarity, the gem is an .80 carats in weight. Its platinum mount of filigree is hand engraved in script to the interior, “W.I or J.H. to A.L. 1935.” On each side of the central diamond are 3 single cut diamonds set into arches, for a total other diamond weight of .06 carats.” I think any woman would squeal in delight to accept this an an engagement ring or even a Valentine’s Day Gift.. (ahem ahem)

What qualifies as vintage jewelry, you may ask? Well according to the Wiki “Jewelry which is termed ‘vintage’ includes many decades or eras. Each era has many different designs. These eras include Georgian, Early Victorian, Mid-Victorian, Late Victorian, Arts and Crafts era, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro. People confuse Retro with estate jewelry. The word “estate” in “estate jewelry” does not refer to jewelry coming from the estate of the deceased. Estate simply means previously owned”

So, if you looking to get more jewelry, Vintage ones might be a nice change to your collection.  Have fun!

connection speedI just realized something while surfing on my laptop today (No, not the samsung netbooks but my very reliable and old notebook). Anyway I realized that if I were to use my usb modem (the dongle version) and connect to the net, I get a 3.6mpbs speed but if I were to connect to the internet via wifi hotspot using using my Samsung Galaxy Note, I get 54.0mpbs speed. Isn’t that crazy? I thought all this time it was 54.0kbps and I was switching to the dongle each time I come home to work on my laptop when it was actually easier to connect via wifi hotspot and get a much faster speed. Duh me!

I’m going overseas people for a somewhat cheap holidays people.. hahhaaha.. Well Singapore is overseas right? And that is where I am going.. back home to the loving arms of my mother. I plan to do stuff tourist do when they go on vacation. I want to relax, do some shopping, catch up with friends and eat! lol! Of course my loyal laptop will be with me for emergency work but I hope that will be kept to the very minimal, thus the last minute crunching with my client in the States.

Anyway, joke aside, this trip is way overdue as my mom meds is up to the very last dose and if I don’t go back this week, she could very well get her asthma attack again and that is definitely a no-no.

I still have not packed a thing but I have bought all that mommy wanted me to buy. I am also carrying some very precious cargo this time. A friend of mine has ordered some macaroons here and requested me to bring them back to Singapore for her. So I will be getting a box myself and I will write a review about that at my food blog, hopefully before I go.
