Baking workshop

Attended a Chocolate cake baking and Chocolate Fondant Roses making workshop... this being my very hands-on baking workshop and I'm enjoying it :-) had fun making the roses.
It's a two days workshop... first, learnt to bake a solid chocolate butter cake and make chocolate fondant roses. on the second day, learnt to put the fondant over the cake... not an easy thing to do :-) very tricky... but to decorate it ... is FUN :-)
stayed on to learn about shortcakes :-) a very long day but enjoyed every minute of it :-)
gonna attend the cake pop workshop tomorrow :-)

have signed up for the PME sugarcraft workshop next month... so looking forward to it :-)

engagement ring box

Was asked to make an engagement ring box...
Used glitter paper to make the box, glued a Prima flower in the center of the box (the ring should fit in the center of the flower snugly). Covered the box with flower and tie with ribbon.


PROPS! i just love making props for musicals ... these are some of the props that i've made for the school musicals...
The dresser and stool plus Jail cell is for "The Best Little Theater in town"
The whale is for "Night of Young Stars"

diaper cakes

Diaper cakes - thought i compiled them together ... I do enjoy putting them together.
so far, i've only did two diaper bikes, one trike and one cake!


Murals... it's something really fun and challenging.
Did two murals - one in the school library reading corner (which was a personal project) and the other - a major project cause it's the entire room with the theme 'under the sea' and i had lots of other parent volunteers and teachers who pitched in to help complete the mural.

a sad day indeed

received a call on Thursday afternoon that my dad had just passed away... it's just too sudden, i called him earlier on his birthday to wish him happy birthday (which was on 19 July) and he wasn't feeling well that day. He was admitted to the hospital that evening as he was vomiting blood and blood in his stools. He passed away at 3.55pm on Thursday, 21 July 2011

Drove up to KL on Friday (afternoon). Booked into Empire Hotel at Subang Jaya. After checking in, went to Nirvana where the funeral was held.
it's kinda sad but at such occasion, is the time where i got to meet up with all my cousins (from my father's side) ... which i have not met for many years. Brings back such good memories of growing up together, the gatherings during festive seasons...
and friends too, which i have not met for a long time...

Dad was cremated on Monday, 25 July 2011 at Nirvana Memorial Park in Shah Alam. One of the rare occasion where everyone of us were there... even though there were just the 4 of us with our families and mom. After the cremation, we went out and bought lunch and had a good time bonding at the Memorial Park. It's a time for our children to bond with their cousins too.

Drove back to singapore that afternoon, with a heavy heart...

Time has certainly gone by quickly

hi still unable to find time to scrap, craft and even blog...
Leaving tonight for Melbourne, gonna send my eldest girl
there for her foundation studies at Trinity College... not
sure what to expect but at this point of time, i have too
much on my hands to think about not having her around
at home! will be there to help settle her in and then i'll be
back and another madness starts... as i have to start packing!'s like a vicious cycle with no end in sight!

Hopefully this will be my last time having to pack and move...
cos we are finally getting our own apartment...smaller than the
current place that we rented but then again, it's easier to manage
especially when it comes to cleaning :-)

hope to squeeze some time to craft as i pack too :-)
