Bali Revisited: Ubud 7-13 Jun 15

I went back to Bali recently. This time round, the focus was more on Ubud. I simply love the place. I wouldn’t deny that part of the reason was due to the movie, “Eat, Pray, Love”. However, I did not visit most of the place which Elizabeth Gilbert went to. Instead we explored Ubud on our own. Just me and Mr Choo.

One of the more exciting thing which we did were signing up for a cooking class. How cool is that right? Ever since we shifted in together, we had the opportunity to cook together. I’m lucky that Mr Choo loves food and cooking as much as I do.

We went for Balinese Farm Cooking and Organic Farm. It’s almost an hour drive out of Ubud, located on the higher grounds of Bali.

An update of my life

This is way overdue.

I don’t remember when was my last post till I check my blog that it happened more than a year ago. Major Oppsie!! And WordPress had a major overhaul.

The past one year had been moving in really quickly in a blur. I was really kept extremely busy.

I gotten married to Mr Choo. (That makes me officially Mrs Choo). My work was busy too and I took on a part time course which nearly killed me as it showed me how bad my time management was to juggle so many things. I shifted house to the north-eastern part of Singapore. My 7 year old Acer laptop died and I upgraded to MacBook Air recently. (Yeah!!)

I’m currently 4 months pregnant. It was horrible at the first trimester – morning sickness, nauseating, poor appetite, lousy mood swing, giddiness, tiredness all kicked in. I’m so glad that it is all over. To date, I have live in my new house for less than a year. But I have to redo some parts of it due to the arrival of the baby. Within the one year, I traveled too. (Turkey, Phuket and Bali recently) I did a lot of reflection as I read and traveled. Having a child takes a lot of responsibility, effort and time. Of course, not to mention $$ too. I cannot wait for share my trips with you guys soon.

Stay tune!

Recipe: Char Siew Sauce Baked Chicken wing

20140421-184751.jpg

Perfectly glazed chicken wing looks really yummy. When eaten, it is really heavenly. I obtained this recipe from my canteen auntie. And like what she told me, it is really easy.

I made 12 pieces for trial and the recipe is as follows –

– 12 pieces of mid wings ( fresh or frozen, up to you)
– 2 tablespoons of Lee Kum Kee Char Siew Sauce
-1 tablespoon of Oyster Sauce
– 1/4 teaspoon of black soy sauce
– 1/2 table spoon of sugar

1. Mix them up and marinate for 1 whole day ( it’s best to do marinate it overnight)
2. Preheat oven to 230 degrees
3. Bake it for 25 minutes on a wire rack ( this way, you do not have to flip the wings over)

Easy? Extremely easy

My Wedding Bella Box

My Wedding Bella Box came. I begun ordering the Bella Boxes since the month of March. 

These are the items.
The Wedding Box

The Wedding Box – Honestly the packaging isn’t as glam as it was on the picture due to the delivery.  But nonetheless, all items are in.  

Wedding Box2
As you can tell, it comes with quite a number of items such as Wotnot Facial Wipes, Dr. Morita Facial Mask, Seductive Elixir shower foam and scrub,  Vaseline Moisturizer, a Lanvin Marry Me Perfume, The Balm Manizer Highlighter, Wine Wipes, Lanienge Snow BB Cream, Veet Hair Removing Cream,  Dr. Ci.labo Aqua – Collegen Gel and the Fat Lash Mascara.
I’m particularly excited about the Laniege snow BB cream. Partly because my sister bought one from Korea last month, and I saw it. The package is rather unique, unlike the normal bottle or tube type.
I bought the highlighter from the Balm in January. I love the item therefore when I have this mini version I totally adore it. It’s so convenient when I need to travel. This is no doubt a great item. I love how so little can illuminate my skin. The only regret of buying this is not knowing when I can finish this because it can really last for a v long time.
But still, I’m pretty excited in trying out these items.

Easter Sunday

Easter weekend is coming!! 

I grew up attending Methodist schools thought I’m not a Christian. Thus my art lesson for many years would be decorating eggs during this period. We were required to bring an empty egg shell to school. There were classmates who broke theirs on their way to school and the teacher will always have extras to go around for everyone to have try.
Easter Eggs

Music Festival

It’s Coachella weekend!!. In Singapore where I’m residing, we do not have Coachella Festival. However, we do have other form of music festival which would either be indoor or outdoor. This set is inspired by the Coachella Festival suitable for our local setting as well.
