New Shoes For Me, New Bags For You

Nowadays I never do much shopping except for groceries... shopping in this sense means buying something "vain" for myself... hahahaa... I was thinking that since I am going to retire in another six months time, I do not need working clothes anymore.  My cupboard is full of them and it is such a waste to buy some more and hang them there.  If I am not careful, the metal bar in the cupboard will go "sengat" and fall due to overloading...
 
 I was sitting here waiting for my friend who was trying some sports shoes....
Nothing here interest me actually.....
But when it comes to shoes, I just couldn't resist buying one pair...
(Well, at least my shoe cupboard still has space!)

Since I am on shopping subject, here are two new bags given by my colleague...
 



She bought these two bags from Beijing...
New ones ... never been used before...
But she gave them to me when she found out that they are made from "pig skin"
It is such a waste if I just chuck them away in my store room...
If anyone like these, please let me know...

  5. Hello darling! I'm still awake.. Oh yeah I know wat u mean.. Too many clothes hanging there can make that metal bar drop anytime.. My wardrobe is not built in, so it can get kinda shaky too sometimes.. Those nice expensive bags could make a nice Christmas exchange gift if you do not have anyone to give to..

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...
