How to Get Started

The project won`t take much of your time nor immense resources, the most important aspect worth mentioning is that white roses should be freshly cut. Coloring roses that have been harvested a week ago and have absorbed the water of a vase ever since will hardly absorb the water that you`ll now serve colored but more on that later on; keep In mind, freshly cut white roses.
The process broken down into steps follows:

Every rose should have his thorns remove and the stem should be shortened to 7-8 inches.

Prepare the food coloring. Take four or five glasses and fill them with water, drop different hues of food coloring in each one and make sure that ink dilutes well in each recipient.

We will now split the stems, refer to the illustration above for graphic aid. You can split the section of the rose however you consider fit but to start with a knife that would split the stem into four pieces could do the job very well. It is important to make this cut as precise as possible as the water transport system must remain intact for the process to work properly. Repeat the process for all your roses.

It is time now to feed the roses. Place each part of the four into a different recipient in the attempt to gain 4 hues on each rose. Play with their position. A useful trick is to use scotch tape to ensure the stability of the roses.

In 4 to 48 hours changes should occur as the roses are slowly absorbing the colors. This process is influenced by numerous factors from ink`s quality to the rose`s size so be patience and don`t give up if your first attempt fails.

Once your roses have absorbed the colors harvest them from your coloring workstation and plant them in your décor, these will become a brilliant focal point.


Decorating With Rainbow Roses
The process is simple enough to encourage one to get creative with colors. From black to green and purple roses could wear a wide variety of colors and hues, all can be obtained through the same method making the process very interesting and intriguing for the mind. One could associate this process with various holidays to create the ideal centerpieces through different colors.
Dried roses can become part of your potpourri alignment and in a similar manner a beautiful pack of dried roses, still intact can be preserved in a mason jar, their legendary look can emphasize your bathrooms décor for  a good amount of time.

Rainbow roses can also become extraordinary gifts to family and friends, loved ones. Nothing compares with a unique rose that you`ve colored yourself.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
