holiday baking + answers

Friday, December 10, 2010


hi my lovely little reindeer!
so cheesy, i know ;)
well it has definitely been too long since i last blogged. oops! 


not too much has happened since i wrote about halifax - except i went home for a week and it was so so amazing. 
i baked, and cleaned, and ate homecooked meals, and saw a santa parade (i didn't take my camera though, which is a shame because it was a really nice parade!).


i cut out my gingerbread houses and glued them together, but i'm saving them to decorate for when my brother is home. our gingerbread houses usually end up looking kind of crazy, but i looove them.



i made some big decisions that i'll probably share after christmas. they are good decisions though, and i'm a lot happier because of them.



i almost forgot about the questions you asked me! 
here we go:

emma asked: who's your ultimate style icon?
to be honest, this is kind of a tough question for me! i admire a lot of styles. i do love rachel bilson's style though, as well as vanessa hudgens. i like casual styles, not too much fuss, but still cute and put together!

sarah asked what's your favorite snack?
this is a hard one too. i'm totttttally a snacky person. i love cookies, pretty much any kind. i love ice cream in the summer. i love dark chocolate, especially mint. i love peanut butter + nutella wraps too. fruit is always a yummy snack, especially bananas and pineapple. i could go on and on haha :)

answer my dream asked 1. who do you look up to/who inspires you?
2. what's the best book you've ever read?
3. what are your favourite things to do on a lazy day? (apart from the obvious of being lazy)
1. i look up to people who do what they love passionately. people who are honest, and strong, and know who they are and the type of person they want to be. i strive to be that person some day. 
2. the best book ever? my go-to answer for this seems to always be extremely loud and incredibly close by jonathon safran foer, because i find something new every time i read that and as cheesy as it sounds it really moves me. but of course i'm going to have to mention harry potter as well, i grew up with that series as i know so many others did, and i really can't not mention those either.
3. on lazy days i love reading blogs, watching tv/movies, journaling, napping, creating things and baking!

rebecca asked if you could visit anywhere in the world for a week to explore and discover the culture, where would you go?
there are so, so many places i want to go in the world. i have not done nearly as much traveling as i would like, and i'm hoping my twenties will allow me to do much more. i think i would have to say greece, though. i am fascinated by greek history and mythology, and would love to have the chance to experience it firsthand and see the sights i've read about in books and learned about in school.

that was a lot of typing!
if you have more questions, feel free to ask whenever and i'll make another little post like this sometime again! i love answering questions.

i'm off to go to a wine and cheese/ugly christmas sweater party now! i don't like wine, but i'm very excited.
hope you're all well and that the season is inspiring you and warming your hearts <3 

love, love

lovely little reindeer - cheesy but i'm liking it! it's so cute, hehe! :) you're constantly baking and making and trying out food. love that! the dough photos look amazing. i'm actually really hungry now, and it's already 2.45am here! haha. brilliant huh. can't wait to hear about those decisions. :) happy that you're much happier because of them - that's the way it should be anyway!

i love dark chocolate too! and oh yes, peanut butter and nutella. scrumptious! hehe. and fruits! i have to agree, but not about bananas. i'm not a fan of bananas. i love snacking on seedless grapes though!

btw, do you happen to have twitter? would love to follow you. :) it'll be great to keep in touch further.

have a beautiful friday, sara! much love from malaysia. xx

hi dearest sara.

i hope you've been coping well and that the week got better for you. :) christmas is approaching and i'm getting a little excited. didn't manage to do much shopping on saturday - only got a gift for the boy. but that's the major headache. i'll be hitting the mall tmrw to complete my list of gifts to be bought.

you're in my thoughts and may this week be one that's filled with heaps of love and joy. :)

i'm sure going home to your family would be very much fun and comforting during this holiday season. take good care, love. xx
