Budding Baker

Kaira has been bugging me to bring her for baking class for quite a while ..... i think she misses those times in netherlands when we were pottering around in the kitchen.

If there is one thing i am looking forward to in our new place -- is the OVEN!!  i miss baking too!!

since i have time and it's school holidays now (which means more of such classes are available) decided to bring her for a cupcake session today and she was really thrilled.

I think the next time, we will should be baking in our own kitchen :)

Hazy Singapore

the haze this week is terrible. i have forgotten what it means to be "plagued" by the haze....  until now.
apparently the worst was in 1997 (or was it 1998) when the PSI (pollutant standard index was over 200).  On bad days, it's between 100-150 now .... bad enough. :(

and sadly, we have no "control" over the haze as the cause of it is forest fires in Indonesia.....


If the weather is cool, i can imagine that it is fog.  unfortunately it is hot and humid!!!

WIP - our renovation journey

We bought our place in early 2012  (around 15-year old), a few months after we returned to SG. We bought it with tenancy and when the tenant moved out in Dec, our intention was to start renovation then.  That was when i started asking around for renovation contractor contacts.

However, we had a friend who needed to a place for short-term stay, so we delayed our plans.... but finally, we are starting on this exciting journey (although with much trepidation! since we have heard alot about renovation woes).

Pray that it will be as smooth as it can be! with minimal hiccups!!

to help us in this journey, i have set up the following :
1) renovation budget worksheet
2) renovation worklist
3) photo record -
4) pinterest board - for ideas 

hope things will proceed as planned and that i will not overlook anything!!

Will probably blog a few posts about some of the stuff i have learnt in this journey! e.g. toilet bowls!!! hahahaha.  anyway, this is my FIRST time renovating a place -- so alot to learn!!
