a little update on this mama’s life

Hello blogospheres! Gosh, it's April already! 2019 goes so quick. Please slow down a bit. Well, life's been hectic enough for us. As you probably know that summer's finished in this part of the world. We're entering autumn, though the weather is still a bit warm for autumn I reckon. Summer sports (rowing and basketball) [...]

So, my girlfriend and I went to Perth Garden Festival 2019 this morning.  It's my first time to visit this event.  The weather this morning was pretty good, warm enough for autumn season in this part of the world, that you still need to slip, slap, and slop ☀️ We bought our tickets online with [...]

How are you people?  How was your week end? It''s been a beautiful summer weather here in Perth.  Average temperature is just below 30 celcius, until yesterday it reached 38C OMG...hot...hot...hot! But I think it will go down to around 30s, which is still bearable for my liking.  Good time for some beach actions, I [...]

chilli crab (singaporean style)

The other day DH and my boys and friends caught some crabs. So, chilli crab on the menu for dinner. This old recipe of Singaporean chilli crab is always handy so that’s why I reblog again and thought it would be useful to share too. Sorry no recent pictures of the crab, as I didn’t get a chance to take a pic, the chilli crab gone in 60 second 😝

The Shallow Kitchen

my green lovers

I used to think that gardening or plants are just for old people.  I mean, when you are 60 and above, then it's the kind of thing you would do to kill time.  I often admired my late mother in law's  garden and amused with all her colourful petunias.  I always love pretty garden though, [...]
