Donuts - This is what a lot of singaporeans are crazy about now. It seems that there is a craze on donuts especially those from Donut Factory. The queue is always super long. People are queueing at the store before it actually opens for business *faint*. Finally I got a chance to try the donuts. All thanks to my diligent and hardworking bro...Thanks you.

The donuts taste quite nice. But a bit too sweet. I had this one white chocolate one that has a layer of milk chocolate inside the donut. Nice but a bit too sweet for me. :D

The package includes a woolly sheep, a knit notebook, one ball of sock yarns (for my climate here), a skein of yarn that she personally spin it, 2 pouches, 1 ready made magazine and some post cards.

Tasks assigned!

Remember some posts back, my mum requested me to do a scarf or shawl for my relatives. But end up there is really a short of time. Hence the request is not fulfilled. However this time round, my mum assigned me another task. The task is to knit/crochet FOUR shawls/scarves for my relatives so that she can give it to them the next time she visit them which is going to be next year around march or april.

So I have a longer more time to knit this time round but more items this time round. So what am I going to knit for them. Hmmm, I had decided on two patterns. One is the black clapotis (yes, I am going to do another one for myself next time), another one is Montego Bay Scarf from IK summer 2007 (I had started a shawl version for myself). For the other 2, do anyone have any suggestions? I wanted something simple and nice.Of coz something that I can do it first. :)

Project Spectrums

Here are the projects for PS for the month of June / July.

The colors themes are red, black and metallics.

Redgina - an orangina in red
Finally I had completed one side of my redgina. It seems to take so long as I am using 2.5mm needles. I really start to wonder is my knitting really that loose. Well I had also cast on the other piece. Hopefully I can completed it before the next quarter.

I casted on this with an intention to have a shawl for evening purpose. However, it turns out to be a bit too small. Maybe because I used 3.25mm needles. So I thinking to complete this and give it out as a gift. It looks more like a scarf now.Coincidentally, the color of this shawl fall into the color theme for project spectrum for June/July.

It had been a long time since I last make pastry like cookies, cakes etc. It so happened that I came across a chocolate cookies recipe from wokkingmum blog and its clear and short instructions. Hence i decided to buy the ingredients to try it out. Oh ya and I finally bought a weighing machine to make the cookies. Most importantly, the weighing machine shows ounces too. *blink blink*
The cookies taste nice. I love them despite that they were a little black. But I think I left it out to cool down too long. I should keep them in the container earlier.

I had been a movie craze recently watching movie almost every weekend. Now I am waiting for Harry Potter- one of my favorite movie.

I went to watch the hottest movie
in town - Transformers with hb and r&r last week. Before watching the movie, what was in my mind was that this is going to be any childhood cartoons that movie makers can changing it into a movie. All about robots that all.

However after 2hours +, I totally changed the way i think. The movie is a must watch. The animations is awesome. I am totally amused by how the movie is made. The movie is so fast that at moment I missed some of the scene as a lot of things can be happening at one. At the end of the movie, I was still asking around with the others. Hehehe but I guess I would be watching another time. Maybe would just rent the DVD when the DVD is out. ;)

A highly recommended movie.
