01.10.2014 - An Update

Hi there... It's been a tiring week and I've been busy especially since Hiraku left an impact on me. Read on to find out what I've been up to...

I managed to get an order from a dear friend of mine.
She would need 50 x cards on a monthly basis and it's only starting from Year 2015 since she purchased ample cards to last her till end of Year 2014.
Hence, I'm doing preparation work now. ^^
I did create quite a few birthday cards and the photos are all posted on my Instagram account.

I watched Maangchi's videos on YouTube and decided to give Korean cuisine a try. ^^
This is Cucumber Kimchi. I couldn't find the kirby cucumbers and hence, I used the long type of cucumbers. I've no idea what they're called. It turned out just fine...

I left the cucumber kimchi covered and in room temperature to ferment it.
The next day, this is how it looked.
That juice...
I opened it and it smells lovely!

I attempted doing another type of kimchi and this is Mushroom Kimchi.
It turned out fine except that it's a tad too spicy as I didn't follow the recipe diligently.
The next round, I followed the recipe and it is good. ^^
Next time, I'll add in more mushroom.

My helper was telling me that leftover onion is really bad as bacteria grows really quickly.
That's what a doctor told her.
With all the onion and asian chives left from my kimchi making, she made some onion fritters!
Goes really well with beer though this is not my favourite beer. Ha ha...

I went to see my Horlick and he's still just as chubby.
He loves sunbathing here.

He looked up and I managed to capture this moment.
I think he looks really good here. ^^

Last week in the office is really tough.
I didn't get enough sleep, was tired and cannot focus at work.
My boss was stressed up and he was more demanding than usual.
As mentioned on my Instagram account, when I'm stressed, I craft and if I can't craft, I do Candy Crush.
This time round, even candy crush can't do the trick.
Thank God for a good ex-colleague who offered me a cupcake from Twelve Cupcake.
Choc Red Velvet Cupcake. That sure did the trick! Ha ha...

Well, this is an update from me! I will still be busy making cards in the next coming months...

I hope you did something happy today...
