Indulgent Saturday

I finally signed up for my own iTunes account and for the first time
in my life, paid for a game (all of 99 cents) rather than just use the
free versions.. And I am having oodles of fun with the (free) photo
apps! Super fun. Samples will be shared in due course!

I love a man with a sense of humour

It was from the blog of the stylishly entertaining Ms Spinach that I first heard of the White House's flickr photostream (Impressive!). What caught my attention though was this hilarious photo and all the comments it attracted. LOL.

Just so you know, it's a bright and sunny day...

Minorly bored

10am and my hair has held up pretty well I think :) inspired by a
video that Stella sent me, bless her heart...

Update: Here's the video!

Heart heart heart

I really get a great kick out of drinking a drink with a heart in it.
My frequent lunch time treat :)

Mixing business with pleasure

I wonder what it feels like to do craft all day ... for work :P
Does it feel a bit like being in some strange land at the top of the faraway tree?

Why I Blog

  1. To capture the enjoyment / happiness I feel
  2. To help me remember things, like when I last met some friends, as I did tonight at the extremely charming & affordable Pasta Brava. I met Chelle & Steph for dinner. And oh Steph, last time we met was in Feb :)
  3. For fun
  4. ...and for other reasons I'll talk about some other time when I'm less sleepy :)

Things to give thanks for

...namely, people in my life who swoop down on me at lunch time on a day in which (1) work is taking its toll (2) it is a very wet day in which it is near impossible to get out for lunch and the prospect of canteen food seems dreary (3) I need cheering up. Thanks gal :) This is at House at Dempsey Road. This is truffle pizza and some delicious squid concoction on the right.

Sweet Surprise

I was talking to a colleague on the train this morning and mentioned
that I was feeling panicky about some deadlines. After lunch he came
by with some cheesecake to cheer me up. How sweet! That's the kind of
thing I would do for someone so I hardly know what to say when I'm on
the receiving end. Um, except a very big Thank You.

Tea at the Raffles

It was a pleasant afternoon off.

Though the photo doesn't suggest it, it is now night as I write this.

It was a beautiful day. Joe and Mandy got married. Little boy Joe, a kid who I recall was a terror in sunday school. The kid whose favourite t-shirt for a season cheerfully proclaimed "I'm here for the beer!" It was a very sweet wedding. My brother was busy scampering about helping the couple, in his new suit and with his brand new ties which I take some credit for. Oh he looked very nice :)

It was a nice hot-but-windy-day.

Dinner was nice too. Good food and it's always nice to see everyone dressed up.

And beautiful thought, the weekend is starting!

It is night. I have had a good day and am satisfied.

My noticeboard, May 09

I brought my stamps home from work where I've been doing craft stuff with a colleague at lunch. This being a long weekend, and with my new stamps, I thought I'd have time for some craft. Made a card for Joel & Mandy who got married this May Day.

I've been playing with my friend's Polaroid camera. I wasted one shot at lunch with Stella, Jac and Sheena when I accidentally pressed the wrong button. There went $3. I stuck it up on my board as a reminder of lunch, and I tried stamping on it to see the effect.

A giant A by Adobe which I love. I tore it out of a brochure.

Christmas card from Sheena. We made our cards at Chelle's store, I mean, home :)

Some Lomo photos that I cut up.

A little pen and marker thing I did after seeing Jacob's website.

And things that have been on my noticeboard for ages... what I have previously described as a decorative thing, and a toothpick-and-macaroni-letters painted over with nail polish from a secondary school fun fair made by my one of my classmates. Someone once said that things in my house don't change that much, which is pretty true!
