she's looking at you

A couple of cats came into the garden to say hello. Meow meow!

baking away

We spent the past few days churning out the last batches of cookies ready for the year of the dragon! Little jobs of rolling, cutting, brushing and careful handling of fragile dough.

I tried the beef prosperity burger set (Malaysian McDonald's limited?) yesterday and found the sauce too peppery for my liking. It was an alright meal, even though the prosperity mcfizz was 90% Sprite and 10% orange juice. It occurred to me that I should take a photo after I have eaten half my meal.

the snow country

I spent the year end in the snow and the new year on a flight back to my grandma's. Speaking the local language made the trip more fulfilling and enjoyable. I would love to go to Hokkaido again when I save up enough money. Hopefully by then I will be able to speak Japanese like a native! Let this be an incentive to work harder and study more.
