Simply put!!

A few simple pleasures...



Turning 36 and realising it feels just like 35...

Finding out how lucky i am to be turning 36, from my 5 yr old..you are so lucky amma, you have so many candles to blow, not fair!!...

Realising that we have a long 4 day weekend just for my b'day...(actually it was for Chinese new year but that is really beside the point!!!)

Having a surprise lunch date with G, with kids at school...and then splurging on doughnuts to keep the guilt pangs away.

Spending a day out at the beach with kids and G, biking, building castles and of course eating...

Missing a deadline, realising that Singapore is a few hours ahead and salvaging the day! .(*Phew!!)

Seeing my little one practice his lil Cha Cha dance-hops...

Having a birthday hangover!!!

Finishing that book which i started weeks back and reaching out for another

Blogging just because...without wanting to be politically correct, perfect, funny or profound...

Finally changing my template and realising that i am not so dumb after all... i can even tweak around with the code now. (be prepared to suffer more experiments...)

Getting the net to work long enough to post this...

Err...ummm...getting to the point now, how's the new template, anyway? :)

i love the pic at the mast-head! but i think i still need some to get used to the color theme of the rest of the page. but then nobody depends on me for choosing color and such-like :)

i think these simple pleasure are the source of profound peace in our lives. give me these simple pleasures any day!

Err. I actually forgot how your previous template looked like. Some memory I have got! But blame it on your posts, they are such a delight to read and everything else blurrs out.

Glad to know you had great b'day. It is difficult to have a 2 week B'day hangover after an age of 16. You have experience something remarkable.

First of all A very Happy Birthday!!

What more can one ask for..such simple pleasures that give us so much happiness!!

And the template looks really cool! Very soothing to the eyes.

i love the template, it looks very peaceful.. i would experiment with the color of the tagline, as some of the text gets lost in the lovely graphic...and everything here is so beautiful,,, i would hate to see any of it passed over....

Great masthead, but the background colour for the body text is not as good. Either that, or I have poor taste :-)
