A New Semester Begins...

My girl is going to her new hostel soon, each year the students are allocated to a new block and the more senior they are, they are given better choice of rooms.  I remember during her foundation year, the room was kind of dreary, cemented floor and bricks on walls.  Then after her foundation, she was given a better room in another block and she decorated her room with these cheery cartoons on the wall.  It brightens up the room giving it a welcoming back look, she feels more at home than in college after pasting up these on her wall.
 This side of the wall was pasted with Spongebob by the former tenant...
And she added her favourite Disney cartoon on her side... 
Each time she wakes up, this cheery character more or less brightens up her day...

And now she has to give up this room for her juniors.  She is going to register for a new room next week and she told me that she will be getting some cartoon posters again for the dreary walls.  I know what she is going to choose again this time, she is very faithful to her Winnie!
I like these posters on my wall... 
My girl will also love these vinyl wall art...
Each day is brightened up with trees and flowers ..
and it looks like spring for the 365 days!  LOL... 
For her room, I think this one is cute too 
Perhaps I shall get these vinyl wall stickers for her... 
 She loves anything that is cure and sweet!
Well, as long as she feels comfortable in her room... 
I do not mind getting her any posters and stickers...
After all, she is the one going to stay and study there for the next few years....

  2. Nice. Not like my daughter's place in Sg Petani - they destroy everything before leaving, all torn, damaged...and to think those people would go out into society as...teachers!!! So disgraceful! The admin there are absolutely useless. Should do like khidmat negara - check, repair or pay for any damage before allowed to leave.

    1. Yes, if the paint is nice and not in patches... some are left overs from previous years leaving dirty marks on the walls... so covering them with vinyl stickers are fine.. they can easily come out without leaving papers on the walls..

  7. Hmm ... Some decors are good but get her to exercise frequently to release stress. That will help her sleep better.

  11. I have something like that cute pink tree and owls-on-the-trees wallpaper at home, which I bought from Groupon about half a year ago.. I bought three actually: birds chirping on a tree branch, trees with stars and leaves with bird cage.. At one time, very "hing" birds and trees and bird cages, hor? Hehehehe..

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
