DIY edible fingerpaint :)

Aside from music, Iya also loves the visual aspect of arts. I already bought her washable markers for coloring stuff and making art but it didn't seem enough for her. I thought maybe Iya needed to 'get down and dirty' to truly enjoy the art experience. And so this fine Sunday morn, I made her edible fingerpaint ^__^ If dipping her fingers into bright colors won't make her shout with glee, I'll go back to my medical career and forget being a mom. LOL!Ü

Anyway, here's how you make edible fingerpaint:
1. Mix 1cup flour with COLD water (variable amount, just add little by little). Mix until there's no more lumps.
2. Slowly add HOT water to the flour mixture until desired consistency is achieved. If you want it more runny, add more water and vice versa.
3. Separate the mixture into different containers and add food coloring to each. I used my mom's Wilton stash and the colors are absolutely brilliant! :)
4. Now you're ready to fingerpaint with your toddler! Remember that it will be messy so just relax and let the good times roll, hehe!Ü

Birthday Challenge Day 8 & 9


Generally, I love me! Hehe! I'm not someone who pities herself or wishes I'm somebody else ~ more rich, more beautiful, more smart, more whatever. I am contented and happy the way I am ^__^ That's why, if you ask me what's one thing I love about myself, I can't give you a single answer.. Coz I love ALL OF ME! Imperfections and shortcomings included :)

I love all of me but that doesn't mean there's nothing I hate about myself. Does that sound contradictory? I suppose it does but then we all have a love/hate relationship with ourselves at one time or another, hehe! And the one thing I hate about myself is that I'm a (relaxed type) procrastinator. I have lots of to-do things that are finished half-way. Now that I'll be turning 30, I'll really really try to abolish this horrendous habit of mine :(

Birthday Challenge Day 6 & 7


I can't think of any song that makes me cry these days. However, when I was in my teens (hormones!!), I often shed a tear or two when I hear romantic ballads. Hehe! Love songs about waiting for love, being in love, breaking up, etc, etc always leaves me in tears. I most especially like 95.5 WRock's Sunday program when they play classic and popular love songs.. Sigh, I miss those simple days when all I did was listen to music while reading a book :)


Only one crush?? Can it be crushes?? Hehe! But then this post will never be finished as I have TONS of crushes! ;-) Anyhoo, my fave right now is BRANDON ROUTH, he of Superman Returns fame ^__^ But I love him more in the TV show Chuck (as Agent Daniel Shaw in season 3) and movie Dylan Dog -- both of which he has scenes where he was topless and wet!! Waahh!! I was literally drooling with Labsie giving me the evil eye, LOL! Below is a Brandon Routh wallpaper (click to enlarge) for you to ogle, hehe! ;-) If you want more pictures of this super handsome guy, you can go to his unofficial Facebook page HERE and official FB page HERE. Oh right, you can follow him on Twitter too. For Brandon's topless photos, click HERE. Don't blame me if you'll get addicted to him! Hahaha!

is it July already??

DANG! That means its been a month since I mobile photo blogged! Blame my nearly 4-year old SE k800i, it's so unstable (and frequently lost coz Iya kept hiding it, LOL) that I can't post my photo blog posts without it suddenly turning off T__T Really have to buy a new phone, haayy!

Anyhoo, July is my birth month and this year I'm turning the big 3-0! WOW! For the longest time, my age has been 18 years old as I feel the 20s are nothing but an intermission between 18 and 30 ~ the ages that I consider important to my life :) If you frequent my wedding blog, I started the 30-day Birthday Challenge there to celebrate my 30th birthday. Below are the links of the previous Birthday Challenge posts. Thanks again to Wilkin for coming up with a 30-Day Challenge. Days 6-25 will be hosted here. Enjoy! ^__^
