My adorable kids



Picture taken in December 2005, Toronto

This is one of my favorite pictures of my kids... I just love it when they are sweet and loving to one another.

My son actually doesn't want me to share this picture with anyone... he claims "its embarrasing." To me, it was a sweet gesture and I love to share it!

I'm planning to delete my scrapping blog since I don't really have the time to scrap anymore... so I just thought I'd re-post some of my favorite scraps here.

Wordless and Watery Wednesday: Beach and Sand

Photography class


Whew! My basic photography class is almost over. This Wednesday will be the exam day and that's it. This basic class is a prerequisite for all the other photography classes that I wanted to enroll. The class is definitely very informative with too much information to digest. I still get confused sometimes, but I'm learning how to shoot in manual mode.

My next class will be about "Scenic and Wildlife" photography [Nov to Dec]. After that I will be taking up "Intermediate Photography" and "Wedding Photography" in January. Each class is 6 weeks long.

To get a certificate on photography, I have to take at least 8 courses. Still have a long way to go...

Isn't it Ironic?

"We ignore those who adores us... adore those who ignore us...
Love those who hurt us... and hurt those who love us!"

Human nature? Ironic indeed!

Wordless Wednesday: Roses

Just celebrated our 14th year anniversary. And these roses came from my loving hubby.







Wordless Wednesday: 50th birthday cake





I went to a party a couple of months ago, and this cake was made by the wife to the husband who was celebrating his 50th birthday.

Everything you see in the cake, except for the candles, are edible! Isn't it cool? And it taste really good too!

3-tiered Diaper Cake

Today, we decided to throw a surprised baby shower to a friend of ours. It's her 3rd baby, but ever since I saw this diaper cake in several blogs, my hands has been itching to make one. So I decided to make one for her, hence the baby shower.

First, gather up all the materials that you will need -- at least 70 pieces of medium diapers, ribbons, baby bottles, toys, spoons, bibs, mittens and socks... and whatever you may think of...


Then, start rolling up the diapers... this part takes time...


Start decorating...


Move things around...


And here's the final outcome. I was able to convince my friend to show her tummy while we were at the park 2 weeks ago, and I'm sure she will treasure this picture which I decided to add to her diaper cake.
