Simple pleasures

After a great spinning class, I made myself a piping hot bowl of homemade comfort. Ground pork porridge (aka congee) with scallions, garlic and fried shallots. YUM! A perfect end to the day, without compromising my good workout! :D I'll consider making this more often. As a child, porridge was always seen as a meal taken when I'm sick. But as I get older, my appreciation for a good piping hot bowl of porridge is greatly appreciated!

The secret - use old rice! And I like to season the meat before cooking and throw in the rice after the meat is half cooked so the juices will soak into the porridge, rendering it tasty! :) And my favourite toppings? Scallion and a must-have, deep fried onions straight from the motherland!

Healthy and happy me! :D

So I went to CVS and on a whim decided to check out a self spray tanner. Lo and behold, my 1st attempt was splotchy and patchy. much for spray tanning in the bathroom...Time to exfoliate!!! :D And perhaps next time I'll opt to go for a moisturizing cream-type or just go pro ;)

Either that, or I'll simply embrace my porcelain pale complexion.. :P

Home Sweet Home

Ah, its good to have some quiet time. It's been a busy the past few weeks and I'm finally
alone in my apartment and I'm enjoying it.
A little packing, organizing, cleaning and pottering around the apartment is something I never thought I'd enjoy. Ha! But look at me now! Surfing Crate & Barrel, West Elm and for cute pieces I can add to my new home
and for decorating inspiration.
Lazing my Saturday morning away with a hot cup of "teh tarik", with
Dog Whisperer on the telly PERFECT!

Here are some snippets of my work-in-progress pad:
