2nd scrapbook page

This layout was done during a scrapbooking class that I attended with Valerie last year. But I never get to complete it with photos until last Sunday. Still love to use my nephew’s photos ‘cos he’s really adorable. I’ll try using some other pictures for my third page which I hope will be coming up soon. 🙂


Another wonderful crafty blogger!! Tree Fall Design by Manda McGrory. She makes these super duper cute sock pups and fraidy cats. Aaaahhh……..they look so soft, I wanna hug them in bed!! 😀

Cream of Mushroom Soup with Rice & Oat Bran Cakes

My Saturday lunch – cream of mushroom soup with rice & oat bran cakes. From Marks & Spencer. Taste great together and very healthy! 😀

Nian Gao

Loosely translated as Year Cake and is a traditional dish for Chinese New Year. Different families have different ways of eating this. For my family, my mum always had it panfried. It’s really yummy when it’s hot ços it’s slightly crispy on the outside while still gooey on the inside. 

I first came across Toni’s blog last year while browsing around some crafty blogs. I love to read about her children, thrifting, etc but most of all I love to see her crafty creations. From pillows to needle books to tote bags………just a look and you will fall in love! (^o^)

Just a question, Toni – why the name Simple Sparrow for your blog?

Has anyone tried BeardPapa cream puffs before? I love their vanilla cream puffs and recently I found that there’s two new flavours  – chocolate and strawberry. I tried the chocolatey one and I must say, the filling is really smooth and it doesn’t taste too sweet. Yummy!! Will try out the strawberry one soon.  😉

Also tried out the Vinco Donuts that had a pretty good review by the local papers. But I was truely disappointed after tasting the cinnamon caramel one. The texture was quite soft but I can’t really taste the cinnamon or caramel. And the size was a tad small to me. You will need at least three or more of them to really fill your stomach. 😦

Fluffels?? Who or what is that??

“They are soft designer toys that put a smile on your face. They are very adorable, soft and a little bit crazy!” said Mariska, who is the artist behind Fluffels. She currently resides in The Netherlands and is also a dutch graphic artist who makes videogames models.

So exactly how cute are the Fluffels?? Take a look at the pictures below and you will know.   🙂
