this & that




coffee time.....  by myself.... quietly....

rose creme brûlée cappuccino

mocha







two of my babies.....  having sweet dreams






looking cheeky

say cheese!





my sweet godchildren cuddling with their mom






sakura?????!!!!



first homemade jam








first time making jam!
what's even better?
it's made with fresh strawberries picked by little bb!!

the strawberries were quite big and sweet....
however, on our way back that day,
most of them were smashed by little bb....
and so were the blueberries i brought along for the outing...
then,
i thought of making jam out of them.... 

as it was my first time making jam,
i read about jam making and came across one recipe
which calls for a bit of orange peel to make the mixed berry jam less sweet...

i prefer jam with chunky pieces of fruits
so, instead of crushing all the berries,
i left some in bigger pieces

and so,
here comes
our first homemade jam!
chunky strawberry + blueberry + orange peel jam!
we are loving it!

happy birthday batman!









we had a super great time at our godson's birthday party last sunday....

the theme picked by our birthday boy was batman!

honestly, didn't really think a batman theme would be "my cup of tea"
but it turned out to be one of the best party themes i have seen!
the mommy, joanna, has miraculously turned it into an amazing one
with the gorgeous home baked cupcakes, birthday cake, party favours, etc etc!

i particularly like the photo booth made by our goddaughter!
she did a great job with cutting out the buildings, the windows, the batman sign!

black + yellow + white + blue combo isn't that unattractive after all!

i was very happy that i got to help out a tiny part....
with the batman cupcake toppers and batman birthday banner.....

happy birthday didi!!!!
kai ma, kai yeh and little (naughty) bb wish you happiness, health and love as always!

little phrases

when brownie goes on hunger strike
(our boy likes to go on hunger strike every now and then),
little bb goes,
"brownie mum mum !"
(brownie, eat your food!)




when little bb is given big pieces / chunk of food / snack,
he goes,
"wah, 好大舊!"
(what a big piece!)
followed by 
"wah, 好味 yummy!"




when i talk on the phone,
he goes,
"mami 做乜嘢 gae?"
(what are you doing mani?)

"唔好講嘢啦!"
(don't talk!)

and he tries to take my phone away....




some nights ago, 
i was talking to our nanny about little bb's potty training,
we used a very soft voice as we didn't want little bb to hear us,
while we were whispering,
little bb said in a loud voice,
"mami auntie 做乜嘢 gae????"
and in a very nosy manner.....

we all paused and laughed out loud.
