Day 056 - Stare



I like this picture of Thierry! Very sharp, very intense eyes. Hahahaha. I woke him up while trying to get some pictures.

And I'm tired. =( Sorry for not updating regularly (who am I talking to?). My #Project365 is lagging wayyy behind. I think after the massive phototaking during CNY, I suddenly have a phobia of taking pictures. =.= Less enthusiastic? I don't know. And I haven't even hit Day 100 yet. Oh my sky. How can I lasttttt?!?!?

Oh and.... is there anyone out there reading this? LOL

Day 055 - A Little Bird Told Me...



Heard some chirping outside my window and peeked out to see a bird sitting on the ledge outside. Went back to get my camera to snap a picture of the myna! Hahaha. It was totally staring back. =)

Day 054 - Iconic Octopus


Seriously iconic.

Was testing the 35mm lens I rented during the CNY weekend, and I absolutely love this picture!!! See the blurry background!! So chio.

Anyway, like I said, this Octopus is iconic. Hahahaha. It's now in Sis' car. =( No longer in Grandpa's car. Everyone remembers the car by the 'red round thing on the dashboard'. I need to go buy something new for the dashboard!!!

Wonder if I can fins something similar to this octopus??

Day 053 - Wet Cat


Thierry trying to sun himself.

Bathing Thierry is quite fun, but troublesome because you need a sunny day. He refuses to be dried with a hairdryer. =.= So sun it is. Lol.

Cafe Cartel

Had dinner at Cafe Cartel @ Junction 8! Hurhur.


Fish & Chips

Mine! Not bad! I like. I just didn't like the tartar sauce. Too diluted.


Cartel's Pan-fried Macaroni

This is his, and it's awesome! Haha. I wanted this too, but but. Weird when 2 people order the same thing? Need variety. Hahaha. But this is very very nice! Must make mental note and not miss this again next time.

Love going out on dates. Hurhurhur.

Day 052 - Zomgosh Beautiful Sunset!


I LOVE SUNSETS LIKE THESE!!!

Wished I was at the beach or somewhere with full view of the sunset without stupid buildings blocking my sunset. =(

Day 051 - Teenager


I wonder if he's eating well. =(

Thierry reallllyyy dislikes him. But then again, Thierry dislikes all other animals. =.=

McDonald's Breakfast Deluxe!


*drools*

How can you not want to try this?!?! Hahaha. Okay I know it's not much (like one less hotcake, 2 extra bread + scrambled eggs from hotcakes with sausage), but to me, this is awesome!!


Because everytime I have Mac breakfast, I cannot decide between Hotcakes with Sausage or Big Breakfast. Although Hotcakes with Sausage always wins.


So now I have a choice of the Breakfast Deluxe, which is like the best of both worlds, why not, right?

So we (Mum, Sis, Bro, me) woke up like really early for breakfast. LOL.


Tadah!!!

Very very fulfilling + filling. =.= Fattening! I think I'll just stick to Hotcakes with Sausage from now on. LOL. But at least I had my 'dream' of eating both in one breakfast sitting, at least once.

=D

Day 049 - Bracelet


Handmade bracelet.

I made this more than a year ago. And I still love it. It was supposed to be for sale but I couldn't bear to part with it, so it's still mine. =) On and off, I still make earrings, but not bracelets and necklaces. Hahaha. Earrings are the easiest. =X But I don't think I can make enough to sell, thus Sis gets to have them most of the time. =.= Haha. Maybe I should make a few more. BUT NO INSPIRATION!!! T____T

Oh and Mum lost my gold bangle Grandma gave to me. =( WHERE IS IT?!?!?!
