Comfort food to comfort the soul for back to work mondays. moo.
I think I'm spending too much money on food and now I've not enough for clothes!
Anyway, it's justified I guess. My grandparents say I better put on weight before my wedding. I'm going to get my dress measurements taken on tuesday!

That's my birthday cake. It's a blueberry maple cream cheese cake. Everyone says it tastes like mc donald's pan cakes drizzle in maple syrup and blueberry jam. I guess I got to agree!!! I'm craving for it now.
with bunny love. (aren't those pastry bean filled rabbit delicacy lovely?)
Off to play some badminton or ping pong with andreas right now!

Essentially my past few days were about work and in my free time the best of the red velvet everything hunt from whoopie pie to ice cream to slices of cake. Red stimulates appetite.
I shall restart filing all my photos and blogging them chronologically with less randomness!
now i'm off shopping with my mother dearest to look at fabrics for tailoring clothes for the wedding.

"Not much time left now; not much more to endure. Just a few more short weeks, she tells herself, just a few more weeks to freedom. She squares her shoulders and gathers up her things to work, pen poised above paper just so, textbooks splayed open to the appropriate pages. She purses her lips in concentration, telling herself that she needs to focus, she needs to focus so she can get this done and get on with her life. The words in front of her eyes blur into meaningless squiggles across white paper, her pen refusing to flow across the page to make sentences of meaning and insight and analysis. Her head hurts, a dull throb in her temples that refuses to go away. She sighs and throws her study materials away, cradling her head in her hands. When did it get so hard, she wonders, when did it get so hard to do this? When did her motivation leave her? When did she stop caring? She sighs and frowns at her books. After a moment, she reaches over and picks them up again, setting herself to work. Not much longer now, she tells herself. You can do this, you can do this, you can do this."

For the past month, I've been working harder than usual and i get home everyday feeling so drained out! Right now, I'm doing a revision posting at the psych wards so it really is a lot more relaxing and I have time to look around for more wedding ideas and inspiration and well also a lot more time to bake and eat loads of cake, chocolate bread and cookies. I've got a confession to make, I like instant cookie mixes as well, like the betty crocker kind just that I bake it 5 minutes less than what the box states so it is crisp on the outside and cookie dough like inside.
