These photos were taken a year ago in January 2015. 365 days just flew by and I wonder what impact it has left on me. Have I changed mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually? My character is still pretty much the same but my attitude to life may have differed. I’m still at crossroads now and there are possible huge storms in 2016 that my blow the course of my life in different directions. So I guess now is good time as any to put a little marker. Inspired by some Australian bloggers, this is a post to take stock of my feeling and thoughts at this point in time.
Making : lots and lots of tea. I have always had a tea drinking habit with camomile and honey ginger tea on the top of my lists. My dear friend, Clara, brought me some new tea flavours from Australia to try recently and I’m intending to savour it this weekend.
Cooking : Maple Brown Sugar Oats. I usually have condense milk with my oats and can easily turn a healthy breakfast into a sinful one so this new formula helps to reduce my morning sugar intake.
Drinking : Nekisse n2 cold drip coffee. Recently Raphael got his hands on some gorgeous Ninetyplus single origin coffee beans from Melbourne and he creates magnificent cold coffee for me by ice dripping them in geeky science lab looking devices over 6 – 8 hours. Flavourful and clear, these are almost the only kind of coffee I drink.
Reading: A Hakka Women’s Singapore Stories by Lee Wei Ling. I have always found her a fascinating character who echos a lot of ethical values that I admire.

Enjoying: the company of my cocker spaniel, Louis. It’s so comforting to have him snuggle up when I’m in bed, greet me enthusiastically when I wake in the morning and settle himself at my feet whenever I’m at my computer.
Waiting: for lives on pocket mine 2. This strangely compelling game I started playing on my iphone.
