feeling *vanilla*






















i have been trying to look for vanilla scented candles for awhile but in vain....
actually i should say, i did find them but none of them smell strong enough....
a shop in central used to carry a particular scent:  vanilla + mint leaf.
it's the best one i have ever had.... the scent is strong enough to feel up the whole house...
however, the shop has stopped carrying scented candles....
and since then i have been very very reluctant to use the one i have.. which only have half left....


in my recent trip to bangkok, while the girls were luring me to buy lemongrass tea....
my eyes caught sight of the booth selling candles and stuff...
there!  i saw this vanilla scented candle flakes....
as i open the tin jar, a strong vanilla scent came rushing out....
yes!  this is the one!


they also have vanilla scented soaps and body cream,
but because we were to board the plane in a few hours time
and that my bag is already fully packed,
i only got myself the candle flakes....





(i like the reflection of the candle flame....  looks like little hearts to me)


i have been using them to fill up the house with vanilla scent almost every day...


i like vanilla,
i like its woody scent
the scent makes the house feel warm and cosy
and most importantly,
it reminds me of xmas...  my favorite favorite season....


talking about xmas, it's time again to pull out all the decorations!
xmas is just a month away!  hohoho......

xmas is always my favfavfav season too!!! its always a wish-comes-true month.
it reminds me of christmas carolling, esp during the olden school days, decorations everywhere.
and my fav thing - christmas tree

(when i was small, and christmas trees were tall...)

scented candle... ive always looked for a full scented ginger lily. apart from the shop at the peak, i couldnt find a really good one. btw, chocolate is a good one too, to make myself happy in a gloomy day=]

arsa ~ oh yes, amongst all... xmas is my favorite... those days back, i used to be the one responsible for decorating the xmas tree for the family... while listening to old xmas songs.... now, our place is so small for one... except for the songs... which i will play non-stop hahahaha....

ashlee ~ yes, i didn't know there is such a thing... no need to add water... the scent is released when they melt above the tea light candles.. oh really, where in central???

oh it does look like little hearts how lovely :)
a candle always gives me such a feeling of hope with its little flame, i have a burner very like this too.
i burn lavender, or camomile and just lately i like jasmine.
