Children art - Christmas

I m quite surprised to see these grade 3 kids was so excited with their Xmas drawings. And they drew creative stuffs!
Comparing to them if I ever given "Free drawing about Xmas" I d just strolling, doodling dunno what to do. Maybe nothing s so fun for me about this festive season.
Well, enjoy their drawings =] Still have many in store.

Right : this is the only Xmas drawing with baby Jesus. The girl who drew it really has high self esteem, that she drew her own idea, one n only

all about snowman, snow and trees

drawings below, she drew about her grandma's dogs 

this group [from different classes, they draw about activity together, so sweet isn't it

girly drawing, still very pretty ones

our big gulp

If american in american serial, always seen drinking soda [which I have found nothing fun about it since a kid].
The europian drinking beers [especially germans]
sweet tea.

Everyway u turn, rich or medium, young or adult, holding this tea big glass.
Only 5K idr....okay u may say, 3K idr u can get 25 pcs bags of teh celup. But  is convenient already, I m so content with this product.

The tea producer who had this idea is truly genius :D
I usually go for teh gopek brand. Tong Tji is famous for its jasmine tea. Me n my cozin had bad experience with this brand, got stomachhache after having this cold jasmine tea, maybe too acid for my stomach or the tea was just not fresh. But it is not the brand, now just look for a crowded stall, there u can find the tea is always fresh :)

"One grande jasmine tea without ice please,,, n less sugar please."
"Do you want it warm or normal?"
"ah, warm please"
And i m enjoying to the last sip for the next hour :D What a content !

another shot : fried rice

I haven't managed to make a yummy simple javanese fried rice. Which I believe I miss one ingridient: shrimp's head and or terasi. That one thing makes the street fried rice yumm....

So I tried another simple white fried rice this noon.
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2-3 cloves of scallion
- margarine
- salt n pepper
- salt sauce [ see...i mix it with hongkong fried rice]

And top it with quick melt cheese in the scrambled egg.

I also sprinkled dried herbs [sort of oregano]...
And...the result is not bad....
The fusion is not the result of creativity but more of by "I want a good taste, don't fail me"
[cheese barely fail me, last time I made aglio olio n just sprinkled on it, n taste good]

Picture? Sorry, too hungy to take pic.....

Hainan chicken rice

It's kinda [simple] food that woman [hard]workers from Hainan used to cook. My fave dish ever, especially when I was in Singapore, and cheap, u can have it on 2 S$ only [average food price range on 3.5 S$ above] and still taste good.

It is so easy to prepare! I m not being smug but all the basic ingridients: ginger, garlic and chicken stock are just here!
But what I m gonna to say here is not HOW to make it, you can get DIY in youtube. It is about the all years gone not trying to make it after 1 incident. Let me start the story. So, one day I found a pack of instant spice at the shelf. I didn't know who bought it and didn't want to waste it either. So I tried to cook based on the ENGLISH instruction using rice cooker. It ended to a disaster. I couldn't find a name to what the rice came out. Sigh....
Ever since I was so afraid to cook even only using INSTANT paste recipe!
Years after, when I was craving I tried to make one, good thing now the instruction is in 2 language :D though now I don't have the difficulty to read english as I had back then.
And tada! So easy, just need to put some soy sauce =D now I m ready to try the from scratch recipe!
Thanks to youtube, my good instructor ever! :P

Mari menjahit : coffee date dress by Elaine Huang 2009

Saya pikir menjahit kali ini bisa mudah dan menyenangkan.
Terakhir saya ambil kursus menjahit sungguh memusingkan dan membosankan, masi tahap diajarin bikin patron, bukannya teknik jahit yang praktikal [padahal itu harapan saya, plg tidak saya bisa menjahit kancing sendiri lah dengan teknik yang benar].

Dimulai dari saya melihat gadis kecil itu memakai gaun dengan motif bunga2, segar dan cantik. Sayapun bercerita ke teman saya dan dia membantu mencari patron gratis di web. Ketemulah patron ini di .

Selain kain dan jarun dkk ternyata juga diperlukan karbon jahit. Singkatnya lihat aja deh di bawah, foto2nya.

1 set benang, lengkap dgn gunting, meteran, dkk. 3-4 sgd beli di watson , singapura
butuh jarum pentul supaya kain tidak lari2 waktu memindahkan patron
butuh karbon jahit dan rader skalian kapur jahit
nah...setelah merekatkan smua. bingung selanjute piye

nah ini biang kerok juga, slain masang zipper, ini bodice facing front / back, gmn masange....zzzzz
Kalo uda selesai PASTI aku pamerin di burdastyle!!! hahaha. haeh....
