I Like Cute Guys + Cute Dogs

He meant to say "brunch" but he kept saying "breaklunch" instead. He's really so super cute in so many little ways and I ♥ him so...

I have a gazillion photos (450 to be exact) of Mathias' trip waiting to be edited and uploaded. This will take a long long time.

I Like Funny Cats

Taken on Mathias' first day in Singapore. I never would have imagine a cat could sleep like that.

I Like Making Prints

This is meant to be an 8" x 10" print; 1 of the 3 prints I have been working on on and off for a year (and by this, I mean according to mood). I think this one is not quite near perfect yet. There will probably be minor tweaking here and there - you know how it is, there's always room for improvement. (PS: I somehow think Mr. Turtle shouldn't be there)

Still thinking if I should have this on my (yet to be opened) Etsy shop. Not many people may know this, but one day I wish to have my very own stationery shop, selling cute things like self-designed wrapping paper, postcards, button pins, greeting cards, ribbons etc.


Well, here's the latest, and well, I think I'm pretty much done. It fits an IKEA Ribba frame too:

I Like Days With My Father

Just wanted to share this beautiful story by Philip Toledano.

I Like Cute Guys

I've been waiting for this for like ever... It will only be 3 more days before Mathias' arrival; his first time in Singapore! Haven't really got anything planned, but on the day of his arrival, we have a lunch date with Ember at Tampines Street 21 (my old neighbourhood). I'll be asking Kate along too as she's been wanting to converse in French with Mathias ever since she started learning the language.

And this is what he said about it:

Matyu says: (11:22:59 PM)
i almost forget french already lorrr...

Matyu says: (11:23:16 PM)
can speak only singlish, haha

And just the other day, the cute boy sent me an "oxox" (Yes, not xoxo) via SMS... It's was really cute but also strange because he's never used that term, and I didn't think he knows what it actually means. So I asked him about it and he told me he accidentally found it online, thus decided to try it on me. Hahaha! I thought it was really funny so I teased him about it, saying it must be some girl who "xoxo" him.

To which he replied "non lan dearie! I just xoxo with you only lor. jing jing (really really)... jup jup!" (non lan is his way of saying no lah; he even invented his own Singlish... Really advanced.)

I Like Triangles

I've been diligently cutting little triangles using Muji coloured paper (the range of colours in that one pack is fantastic) to make buntings for my room.

Walls are painted, useless things thrown out/donated away, craft supplies are organized... I just need to fix up the shelves, organize my wardrobe (good time to filter out clothes I no longer wear, or better yet, try to mix and match old pieces to create a new look) and of course, set up an ideal work area. Using the laptop on my bed is giving me serious back problems.

I Like Blue + Florals

Bangles I wore to match my cheery floral printed dress, which was bought for $3 at As much as I love the fantastic print and colour of the dress, I don't think the cutting of the dress is suitable for me at all.

I Like Big Breakfasts

Looks like the perfect yummy breakfast to start the day off. When Mathias gets here, I'm going to attempt to prepare this for him...

I Like Postcard Aeroplane

I like this postcard aeroplane (and anything with the fantastic red + blue stripes combination).

I Like Cute Hats

I Like Free Fonts

Font Squirrel has taken the liberty to compile a list of decent-looking fonts; 100% free (the magic word) for commercial use. These are a few of my favourite fonts... (in the tune of "A few of my favourite things")

I Like Rainbow Pastels

I really like this watch from Mod Cloth, US$39.99. Seems like good quality too - water resistant, genuine leather, eggshell white band, and stainless steel back.

Would have gotten it in a heartbeat if not for the horribly high postage cost for international orders (which is more than half the price of the watch).

Any generous souls out there? Hehehe
