You can say that I may be too advanced for my own good.
It’s a good thing — at least in my perspective — I wanted the coming long weekend to be free just in case my parents had something up their sleeves. Ever since I told Ria to stop planning my birthday parties (she’s a dear like that), I’ve been taking them out for dinner instead. My treat of course, I think it’s the best way to bribe them — with free food. Continue reading
The design on this ticket is just beautiful.
Talk about being one week delayed.
This week was full of due dates, labs, tests, and basically — it was quite hectic. But there was something about last Saturday that is worth talking about — regardless of the delay in tale-telling: I went to a fashion show. Yes, a fashion show. In fact, it was my first fashion show in my whole entire existence! Was I excited? Yes, I was more than excited — I was thrilled. It was an event full of glamour and creativity! Being part of the fashion industry was an old dream of mine, and going to something like this was pretty awesome. Continue reading
Aside from my pretty successful lemon cupcakes, I decided to embark on another journey. But this time, it’s easier. No bake, just a little heating of certain ingredients. Core theme? Oreos. Yes, Oreos. It all started when I saw my friend Ariana’s truffles on Instagram, and I was piqued with curiosity. My first question was, “How did you make that?”. It was an interesting-looking treat!

Let’s start off with something straightforward and simple: I ABSOLUTELY love TED videos.
TED videos are absolutely inspiring, thought-provoking and purely interesting. It’s not your regular awareness speeches held at school or whatever, they… They always seem so interesting. Is it because it’s TED? The comfy seats? The variety of topics? I don’t know, but it was always something special to me. In fact, it’s something I’ve been watching for a few years now — and it never loses it’s charm. Continue reading
Okay, maybe after a while… I decided to make another Tumblelog. Continue reading
The Rec and Read team of Ecole James Nisbet Community School — we’re too boss.
Yesterday was a very bittersweet day.
It was the last day of the Rec and Read — an after-school program aimed to elementary students in which where we let them engage in low-organised gym games, and also some reading activities. The program runs on Mondays and Wednesdays; Mondays are reserved for planning and prep, while Wednesdays are the days we get to be with the kids. In the first few weeks into the program, I have to say that the feeling was nerve-wracking. None of us (in general) had a thorough hands-on interaction with children — especially me, this was a totally new setting. Kids weren’t my speciality. Continue reading
The finished product.
In a very much random kind of thinking, the urge to bake erupted.
It came out of the blue, but the drive was strong. During the course of the ride home my stylist’s assistant offered me, I suddenly told her to drop me off to the nearest grocery in the neighbourhood instead of going straight home. As soon as I got inside, my mind started working. I began walking around from aisle to aisle — grabbing things here and there while bearing one thing in mind: I want to bake. Continue reading
