Cookie Box + Candy Tins turned YUMMIER~!

I'm BACK! :D Took out the stash of faux desserts; sweets, ice creams and cakes, and started off decorating 3 cases with zeal. :D Recently, I found a better substitute to the faux cream that I've used all this while. This new one is really good, as it gives me the benefit of adding my stuff on at my own pace --> it dries off pretty slowly, but the end product is flawlessly beautiful!

{ Handmade polymer clay lollies surrounded by pretty sweet cabochons, pearls and teenee fruit slices --> ♥! }

{ I like this one more much more than the previous one. :P }

{ Okay. This DA BOM! XD Actually made this one first then proceeded with the smaller two. This one was done on a Famous Amos gift container. :) }

{ The sides all dolled up with brown polka-dotted pink ribbon. :P }

{ LOVE the KABOOM of sweetness~! ♥ }

On the side, I was working with this pretty-ness on my side cupboard the whole time :P :

{ White bird cage and roses bought during my Bangkok trip. Laced and beaded clear jar and pink tissue rose ball made for our batch dinner. Rings and stuff worn to the dinner :P }

{ Shallow bowl of potpouri with tealights and shiny string of disco beads. This was also assembled for our batch dinner. }

At the new place now, I feel quite inclined and free to decorate the room as I please. :P

Picking things up again

{ Some lovely finds on Etsy to brighten your day with. }

I just came back from a 3-week holiday in Jakarta. Now it's time to get back on track and start pumping out more kawaii. A pity that I don't have a toaster oven anymore - that was the previous landlady's. So I guess there'd be no new polymer clay nor shrink plastic creations at the moment.

Been looking at stuff on Etsy and I must say, the variety has increased. So many talented people! :D Hope to gear up and produce some good ol kawaii soon. :P

The Funnest Month of My Life

Hey... Another long long hiatus from blogging. Readers have been questioning when's the next post since the last one in April. ^-^" I'm really sorry about this guys but I was really busy with travelling, moving and getting ready some things for our batch so-called large-scale last dinner. For that one month, I was more happy than I've ever felt. :P Those moments will be treasured and fondly remembered always.

{ 1st stop --> Ipoh, a quiet town up north of West Malaysia. Must-try local food include dim sum, bean sprout steamed chicken, Ipoh old town white coffee, mixed fruit ice, chee cheong fun and Chinese pastries. Ipoh is a hidden gem of natural beauty --> blue skies and green hills are its virtue. I LOVE this place! }

{ 2nd stop --> Penang, Pearl of the East, a historical place scattered with old buildings and ancient landmarks that signified its cultural diversity. An ideal place for a challenging gastronomic adventure. :P Penang's famous for its street food like char kuey teow, rojak, asam laksa, curry mee, ais kacang, and the list goes on.... I've been to Penang quite a few times, but this trip was the best, being always on the move. And being with fun people. :P }

{ 3rd stop --> Bangkok 13th - 17th May. In the midst of anti-government protests going on, we ventured into heart of the city where riots went on and off. All went well as we were unharmed and had our fair share of fun. Love Chatuchak market! We went there 2 days! THAI FOOD was HEAVEN! I love the tom yam goong and coconut chicken. Pad Thai was very nice too. :P }

{ 4th stop --> Krabi 17th - 20th May. Krabi is part of an island of Thailand. After the urban experience in Bangkok, we headed to sun, sea, salt and fun! We took 2 tour packages for 2 days. One of them was the 4-island tour (Tub, Chicken and Poda Islands, Phra Nang Beach}, and the other was the Phi Phi Islands tour. The experience was AMAZING! Aqua blue sea and clear blue skies, sand and a spot of hot sun --> invaluable FUN! }


Ok, to top it all off, you wouldn't be surprised to hear that I'm now in Jakarta. :P I came here about a week ago, which was right after my graduation dinner and convocation. The past weekend saw me in Bandung and Puncak. We spent some lazy days there. :P Will be updating about this trip soon... hopefully. >.<
