ONE SUNNY DAY

When I started blogging, it was to document all things that happened in my life so that friends and family could log on from wherever they are and see what I was up to. I know a lot of blogs veer away from these things these days but I couldn’t share pics of my friend’s

MERRY CHRISTMAS

As I am writing this, the turkey has just come out of the oven and the smell of roast potatoes fill the house. My sister’s have Christmas songs on repeat and my parents are singing to their hearts content on the karaoke machine to some good old Cantonese pop music (it sounds bad guys…!) I

ONE LAZY SNOWY SATURDAY

Don’t worry – this is about all the snow you’ll get to see in this blog post this weekend.

I contemplated against posting yet another food post after the cakey

TWEED AND PEARLS – A CLASSY HEN

It was my friend Heather’s hen party (bachelorette party for all you US and Canadian folk!) and my friends and I started off the weekend in classy style with a surprise afternoon tea. We organised a big spread featuring lots of cake including some very girly and pretty cupcakes made
