the disappearing act

Sorry for the silence on this end.

Been trying to get things sorted so that I can somehow maintain blogging in the next two months of assessments… it’s not going to happen *sigh*.

Before I make my bi-annual disappearance (the very last one of its kind I hope) I just want to say a special thank you to those bloggers who volunteered to guest post for me – thanks for being so understanding about the postponing of the lovely recipes that you’ve sent over!

To keep a bit of creativity going, I’ve jumped on the #fmsphotoaday challenge on Instagram so you can find me there in the meantime :).

Take care and I’ll see you on the other side!

some pretty spring flowers for you :)

P.S. Planning a trip to HK and Singapore soon so if anyone has any must-visit locations, please let me know!

not tonight

Hey little blog (and readers as well)! 

Apologies for abandoning you this past week… I feel especially guilty since I said “be prepared for some exciting foodie adventures” and haven’t posted since >.<.  It’s been a week of replacing uni work with full-time work (though it’s mainly been training and inductions this week, the long days have been tiring) and catching up with friends/shopping after business hours :).  However, by the end of each day, I feel like I’ve used up my word quota = no impulse/desire to blog.  I’m sorry.  That will change.  Soon.  But not tonight. 

Thanks and welcome to the followers that I’ve seemed to have gained in my blogging absence.  I hope to be back in action sometime next week :).

Have a great weekend!

The inevitable hiatus announcement

Yep, it’s that time of the year again.  This is the official notice that I’ll be MIA for the next 5 weeks on account of the only downside of still being a uni student… exams, of course.

Though having said that, this blog was birthed during the last SWOTVAC period (has it been that long already?) so I guess it’s possible that I’ll be lurking around these parts… but hopefully not procrastinating so much that I’ll be writing anything substantial.

There is happy news though, blog-o-sphere as the wait is finally over AND I know what I’ll be doing next summer and winter if you get my drift ;).  PtL and thank you for those who have sent up prayers on my behalf because I know that the return rate for application-interview-offer was against me so I’m astounded with the favourable results!  By the grace of God is all I can say.  I’ve signed my first work contract and am waiting on the rest to come through this week :).

We celebrated over dinner:

The top two are favourites from Kambo and mum whipped together some pork mince and spinach… delicious!

Posts to come after exams:

Sam’s 20th birthday dinner (seriously can’t believe we’ve made it to twenty years!) and…

A lovely belated Saturday morning breakfast with Ms. MoreBlindDates (isn’t the colour of that beetroot feta just gorgeous?) where she gave me the courage to make a very tough decision (more on that later).  Can you guess where we ate?  No ideas?  Find out after my exams haha.  You can check out my first and last foodie outing with Ms. MoreBlindDates here ;).

Best wishes to all uni students for the upcoming exams!!  Stay positive and smile, the end is in sight :).

Catch you on the flip side!
