Monday photoshoot #22

Karen wants to see magazines, since I don't usually buy many magazines I decided to hijacked a few of my son's magazines. Mostly sports magazines. I don't have the habit of keeping old issues unless really important, most are send for recycle since I hate a cluttered home. There's one particular magazine that I still kept because I was an accidental model in one advertisement.

I didn't notice at first until a sister in law made a comment and I began to scrutinise the advert. And true enough it was me, I recognised that headscarf, that hand bag and that top. Then I remembered, I was queing to buy food at a food court and there was a photographer taking shots of the place. I didn't pay much attention to it, I was more interested in getting food to fill my tummy.

Look closely, you can see a lady in green and red headscarf carrying a black handbag, the third from the left, that's MY BACK! Anyway people don't pay much attention to the 'models', not when there's plates of yummy food in the foreground! believe me, the food are delicious!

Monday Photo Shoot #21

The task by Karen is to show something that can be considered "special." It can be a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, a special outfit you only wear to parties or job interviews, a special soap you can only get at that store across town, or a special meal you make for your kids when they're sick (or bring home a great report card). Celebrate the specialness with a photo or two! And yes, you can dip into your archives for this one, and show us something special that happened weeks, months or years ago.

Here's my take, something given to me by a very dear girlfriend. It's a scrapbook layout, using my picture. I love the little details done and the journaling, fits me to a T.

The one in the pink is my little niece, celebrating her 5th birthday just last weekend. Her maternal cousin will also be celebrating her 5th birthday next week, since we visited her in Johore Malaysia, the adults decided to throw in a surprise birthday celebrations for both of them.

Round Robin Challenge : Norwegian wood

The challenge was to capture anything wooden, well I got one here.......the floorboard is made entirely of wood, do this pass?

I know I'm suppose to post it on Saturday 17thMay, but since I will be away to Malaysia this weekend and might simply forget about the challenge when I come back so I decided to post it a day early.....wait, make that a few hours early since where I am now, it's just 2 hours away from 17th !

Monday Photo Shoot #20

New Monday Photo Shoot #20: You're busy. I'm busy. Everyone's busy. (Well, almost everyone.) Show us a photo the represents one of the demands upon your time.

I miss out on last week challenge due to the lack of time in reading Karen's and somehow other works keep cropping up and I simply forgot to log in here. So this week it's a MUST to do for me...

Here's what I have been busy with........until I leave the house for my part time job and more works will be piling up at home.
The sons have always insisted on home cooked meals daily and guess who's has to do it?
After cooking, there's plenty to wash up ....including the kitchen younger son and I are allergic rhinitic sufferer and one biggest culprit is the dust/dust mites, hence it's an uphill battle of cleaning, wiping, dusting all the time for me. That really takes out most of my times, since I have to clean the home on a daily basis.

Restful Sunday

So, what did I do on the weekend? Saturday there was a parent and children workshop which I had to facilitate. Being the first of the 6 weeks session, it was a busy day testing the preschoolers , organising maths related activities and making sure the low income parents follow what is being taught by the trainer during the parent-child activities.

Sunday was spend what else but cooking for the hungry-hippos and chilling out in front of the tv. With weather so hot at 27degrees Celcious , it's heavenly to just stay at home out of the scorching sun.

D is for......

A-Z Photo Challenge from Perception
due by May 14th, before I forget to post I better do it now...

D is for Dragon Fruit, a tropical fruit popular in Southeast Asia, belongs to the climbing cacti (Cactaceae) family. Vietnam is the main commercial producer of dragon fruits in this region. The fruit, apart from being refreshing and tasty, has loads of vitamin C and is said to aid digestion.
Just cut the fruit into half and scoop of the red sweet flesh and they are ready to be eaten.

This is known as the King of Fruit in Asia, it's the durian. the fruit is distinctive for its large size, unique odour , and formidable thorn-covered husk.. The fruit can grow up to 30 centimetres (12 in) long and 15 centimetres (6 in) in diameter, and typically weighs one to three kilograms (2 to 7 lbs). Its shape ranges from oblong to round, the colour of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale-yellow to red, depending on the species.

The hard outer husk is covered with sharp, prickly thorns while the edible flesh within emits a distinctive odour, which is regarded as either fragrant or overpowering and offensive. The odour of the ripe fruit is strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Due to the unusual odour, the durian is forbidden from certain establishments such as hotels and public transportations in Southeast Asia. The odour has prompted many people to formulate evocative descriptions with views ranging from those of deep appreciation to intense disgust.
