on my birthday...

I'm feeling more and more blessed. A special thanks for the birthday wishes over at facebook and the lovely note from the husband as he came home from the office today. Isn't it magical how happy birthdays make you feel? 

This picture was taken a few years back at a new years party. But for todays occasion, yes, I hope my dreams and wishes do come true :)

celebration of fabric

The celebration is for overcoming a bunch of articles and copy writing deadlines (and still breathing) these past weeks and the fabric is my way of spoiling myself for doing so. It's these batik fabrics I ordered from Amesh . They're just too pretty to pass. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the pink and green one. But the dark grey will be my attire for a relatives wedding. Can't wait for that!

smoked salmon and scrambled eggs

Because it's my favorite month, coz it's my birthday month (yippeee!), this is an Icip-icip favorite. This one is kinda climbing up the charts in terms of flavor and food styling. Both recipe and styling were very simple but made a great output. Thanks for the help of photographer Adi Nugroho, my partner in crime for most of my Icip-icip pictures, we got the morning kind of breakfast light I requested, whereas the picture was taken in a gloomy studio. He makes magic! Miss him dearly. This recipe is one of Jamie Oliver's . It's a must try for all you salmon lovers. Guaranteed.

scandinavian love

Hello October! Blogging land has brought me back to these lovely scandinavian sights since my absence for a month or so. Sorry! Scandinavian design is what I mean and scandinavian homes look just about perfect. I'm so drooling to have a home looking something like these pics. Of course my home mix would be scandinavian - vintage, so it would probably would be a mix of IKEA stuff and garage sale wonders :) Enjoy the scavy shoopin'
