scott pilgrim

I bought myself box set of Scott Pilgrim. I enjoyed watching the movie so I was curious to read the original story. I have a bad habit when the story is completed I read all of them in one go. So I finished reading this in one day~ Great book!

Scott Pilgrim has same birthday as me~

bookhou

Continuing from my last post I went to Bookhou for the first time. I knew about them at One of the Kind Show few years ago. When I first time went to their booth at the show I loved their felted hot plate mat. I told myself not to spend money for myself until last weekend, I finally pushed myself to purchase it~

Bookhou is having Ornaments Group show at their store! Lots of adorable ornaments you can see and purchase~

watercolor

Everytime I meet with Celine we always plan what activities we should do for the day! This time we decided to do object painting with watercolor.
It's been so long doing object painting, doing this re-acknowledge how important to use traditional medium. I keep telling myself to do painting again but I've been not putting that as my first priority....

So this is one part of our day, more posting coming soon~

xmas tree

Sir Charles and I bought a little christmas tree for our apartment~ I like miniature objects, especially ornaments when they're so tiny and cute! Tree top is my favorite! Simple shaped silver star always makes the tree look beautiful~
Someday I want to get bigger tree with bigger star.

Happy holiday everyone!

i love pasta!

Pasta is one of my favorite food! I can just eat plain pasta with salt and butter! I grow my own basil and it goes so well with my quick-to-make tomato sauce.

Simple tomato sauce recipe:
- 4~5cups of any kind pasta
- 6-8 sliced tomatoes
- sprig of fresh basil (or whatever amount you like)
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter(more the better taste)
- sea salt and pepper
- 1/2cup grated Parmesan cheese
- grated Parmesan cheese for garnish

optional ingredient: roasted red peppers or zucchini/ sun dried tomatoes/ garlic

1. Put butter in heated sauce pan, throw in sliced tomatoes and sprinkle salt and pepper.
2. Let it simmer for 15-20 min, stir occasionally.
3. Add basil and leave some for garnish.
4. Add any optional ingredient at this point and simmer another 5-10 min.
5. Stir in 1/2cup Parmesan cheese until thickens.
6. Pour the sauce on boiled pasta and garnish with cheese and basil
