“To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.”                              — W. Somerset Maugham

Couldnt agree more to the above.
As much as i am aware of the need to read constantly, time is not always at my end. Maybe thats something that i need to relook as well- time management.
Cowboy, lets enjoy the books at the NLB this weekend, shall we?

Self invited myself to my sa yee’s mummy’s place over the weekend for mooncake making party:)
Have been pestering her since July! Kept asking her when is the session. Her mummy is an expert!! In all things! No kidding- bakes cny cookies,makes dumplings(Ba zhang),kueh lapis, baking , n of cos moonies!

I had so much fun!! We r like factory girls(across all ages- m the youngest, heehee.oldest is a 88 yr old grandma!) each in charge of a station-making of skin,weighing,stuffing,rolling,molding n packing.

I swear I m not going to buy anymore moonies! It’s super overpriced!! By 500% at least, okie maybe 300%, still u get miserable fillings, very little melon seeds n the paste super sweet. Homemade is different!! U add what you like to eat n how much!
Goona dream of moonies in my sleep tonight!

Enjoy the pics! Cowboy u had fun too right? Playing with ur Owen Gu Gu, Ian Gu Gu & Jan yi yi. Sorry no pics of u today, I was super tied to the mooncake making:)

My loot from the buffet!
Woot woot lurve all of it!

Cowboy, we will kickstart the awesome weekend with a mooncake making session!! Snow skin! Mummy’s fave.

Mummy can’t resist this buffet- clothes buffet, pay a price for a carrier n stuff as much clothes as the bag can hold !!!
Wooot wooot!! Excited! Such a cheapo u might say, but in times of raising inflation n uncertain economy, mummy has to make every dollar worth it while indulging in my favorite act- shopping.
Smart shopper eh! 😉 I try.

We might go to sentosa to check this out, busker festival with a Gd cause.
