Happy New Year!

As I'm writing this, I still find it hard to believe that 2012 whizzed by so quickly! It has been an exciting and fun year for me and here's the highlights of 2012.

January - Went back to Singapore to celebrate Chinese New Year with the family and met my baby nephew, C for the first time.
February - My hubby and I got ourselves a second dog.
April - My childhood friend came to Taiwan for holiday and I spent two weeks sight-seeing around the country with her.
May - My hubby went to Hiroshima, Japan for business trip and I tagged along.
June - Went back to Singapore again to attend my brother's wedding.
July - Went to Hokkaido, Japan with hubby, my brother and SIL for holiday (In case you're wondering, yes, it was my brother's honeymoon and I was thick-skinned enough to tag along).
August & September - Started watercolour painting lesson.
October - I played tour guide again when my mother-in-law and her sister came to Taiwan for 2 weeks.
November - One of my lifelong dreams is to travel solo at least once in my life. I'm glad that I finally had the courage to do so when I went to Kyoto, Japan on my own for 8 days!
December - Had a short getaway to Hong Kong with my hubby.

While I was busy travelling and attending Japanese language and art classes, my blog has taken a back seat and I haven't been updating as often as I would like. I've been cooking/baking and snapping pictures of my food regularly though. Here's a collection of food pictures that I did not manage to post in my blog.


1. Pan-fried fish with miso sauce | 2. Cheese & bacon buns | 3. Ispahan-inspired layered cake | 4. Orange cheesecake with chocolate Glaze | 5. Apple and walnut cake | 6. Sweet potato buns | 7. Linzer torte | 8. Mango tartlet | 9. Banana chocolate cupcakes with Swiss meringue buttercream | 10. Marble cake | 11. Banana chiffon cake | 12. Black sesame marble cake
