I made icecream! I bought an ice cream maker a few weeks ago and after some trials, I found the best chocolate ice cream recipe! I’m telling you it beats store bought ice cream!

The recipe can be found here. You can make it with or without Oreos. If you like dark chocolate like me, use as high percentage dark chocolate you can find and the flavour will be really rich and intense. I used Lindt 85% dark chocolate. Mmmm…. So good!

Now I just need a really good vanilla ice cream recipe.. Preferably without the use of eggs. Any recommendations?

HAPPY DAY! February 9, 2013

In Singapore, it’s not necessary to own a car nor drive myself around because:-

1. Singapore is really small,

2. Public transport is available EVERYWHERE,

3. Cars, vehicle and road taxes and road entry charges are bloody expensive.

But, we have a car at home. As time goes by, I do feel handicapped not being able to drive. If I could, I would have been a lot more helpful for emergencies and other situations.

So, after many years of procrastination, I decided to learn driving and get a driver’s license. It took me more than 1.5 years and 2 tests to finally do so (including 4 months break between lessons because of busy work and 4 months wait for a 2nd test)

And now, I am very proud to announce that I have finally passed my driving test on 8 February 2013 and I can now drive legally on the roads of Singapore!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!

It’s gonna be a good good year! 🙂

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Wan Shi Ru Yi!

Favourite Places in Singapore December 18, 2012

This is one of my favourite places to explore in Singapore. No fancy stores/brands, cheap toiletries, a bit tacky and old fashioned, along with my favourite local craft store (Golden Dragon) ….People’s Park in Chinatown. 😀

I went there after a medical appointment at NUH today. Bought yarn :p, cheap toiletries and spotted a shop that sells self-assembled bean bags!

I was curious about the price so I went in to check it out. Then the lady boss who was there saw my bag of yarn and said “Oh you crochet!”. I said yeah! 😀

And we started talking about crocheting and knitting and how fun it is. hehe. Then she had a customer in the shop, so I told her it was nice meeting her and left. Forgot to ask her for her name. I’ll say hi to her again the next time I’m there. 🙂

It’s so nice to be able to talk about crafting with someone who has similar hobbies! 😀

Finally, my ribbed lace bolero November 9, 2012

After a few years of procrastination, I finally decided to try knitting the Ribbed Lace Bolero which I loved so much as to make a crochet version of it (because back then, I didn’t know how to knit. :P)

So, here it is! Alas, it became bigger after 1 wash. LOL. I used TLC Cotton Plus, I guess I should have made it slightly smaller because this yarn has a bit of drape and the design is very stretchy.

I will give it to my friend Suanie now because it is too big for me to wear!
