Despite that Mr & Mrs Twit are mean, nasty, cruel, smelly and ugly (haha). I'm still a fan of this particular Roald Dahl title. I have this exact first edition published in 1980, when then I was only one year old. My brother and sisters must remember this book too since we grew to quarrel over it a lot. Thanks to my mum and dad who cherish our childhood stuff - including books, work sheets, toys, and drawings - The Twits we own is still in one good piece in our little library at my parents house.

how can you not want to dine here?

Anyway, thanks to both of those films, Serendipity has found itself another fan. I've fallen for the atmosphere and interior I think, but checking out the menu and variety of ice cream on the website is certainly a bonus. Plus, I just love the meaning of Serendipity – fortunate discoveries by accident. This is a dream destination. Oh, could someone please fly me to Manhattan, New York, already?
I was so inspired by this book. I can't agree more with Elizabeth Gilbert that you HAVE to figure out yourself and what you want or need in life and just DO it – in order to make you HAPPY. Totally inspired! And though I finished this book last year, the euphoria of it continues once I knew that they've already started to film it. Julia Roberts is on the cast and I bet it's going to be great. Can't wait to see it!

Instead of sticking them on to the fridge, I thought it would be nicer if they could be a part of wall decoration. Now, not having found the right stickable board, I came across this.
This is actually the inside compartment of a pan steamer used to steam rice or potatoes. The great thing is, it's made from stainless steel so it draws magnets, it's sold separately (without the pan) in different sizes, and already has holes so that I needn't bother to ruin it by making a hole in it to hang up on the wall.

interesting stuff here
Mission accomplished! I didn't get the laundry basket, but I did get the rest for a really good deal. All together, it didn't cost more than 12 dollars. Now, how great is that? I'm planning to paint the chest white and add fabric to the inside. Hmm...we'll see how that goes. Meanwhile, I'm just plain happy with this trip to Cikini.

I have always liked to cook and try out interesting recipes. When I get the time that is. Therefore I was lucky to be handling the 'yummy article' called "Icip-Icip" at CosmoGIRL!Indonesia Magazine for about 4 years. I loved the idea of coming up with simple recipes, create the photograph concept, and had so much fun styling the food so that they looked way more tastier than they really are. Yup, food-on-print have to make you drool. Here is my first favorite, Choco Lolyna, and I will continue to post my other favorites that were once published.
