kitchen makeover

Hello ! Just popping in to let you know I'm still here. I just seem to have nothing new to say at the moment.

How about I show you my new blinds for the kitchen.

Dry kitchen.

Wet kitchen.

And since I did some tidying up around the dry kitchen, I show you the new arrangement of my vantage collection.

This is before. The new cake tray not visually attractive with the dark background. So I moved it inside the cupboard together with blue&whites.

There. The new look. Color coded. What do you think?

Happy weekend !

thursday treat

the foodies gathered around on thursday for the usual (eat,relax,news-catchup) at the usual venue. we feasted on 'jawa-themed' menu - soto ayam and rojak , the side being sandwiches and cakes. we're not so much about food nowadays. tidak kuat makan sudah kami. what with the gals intent on slimming down. kurus banyak sudah c shabbymom o ! c whimsy pun maintain slim.

i baked a chocolate cake with a new recipe i found in it turned out moist and delicious, if i'd say so myself. i'm thinking of baking another & doubling the recipe this time. the kids really loved it.

oh there's another reason for thursday party. my belated birthday present from Whimsy and Shabbymom.

pandai kan dorang? nda sah dorang dua saja ada ini cake tray. mesti kasi cukup korum tiga.

after all we are the 3 musketeers. all for one and one for all !

the trays are lovely. i could so use it for Hari Raya. thank u very much frens !

did you all enjoy the long weekend? what did you do ?

i'm sure (and hope) you had a better time than me. didn't go nowhere except to weddings and endless weddings from 30th may up to yesterday. B-O-R-I-N-G. a planned vacation had to be cancelled because my son has to attend extra classes during the holiday.

attending weddings = migraine. always the case for me. not because of occassion. because of the weather. and the weather is extreme these days. ridiculously hot in the mornings and rain & thunders in the afternoons. so when i don't attend wedding, i wander about the house trying to stay indoor as much as possible.

i end up doing this. decoupaging an old basket and a biscuit tin.

have a cheerful day !
