Cati and Tiny Blooms

Tiny things can be really intriguing to me.  I love looking at the details and enjoying the finer things in life.  Bigger is not always better when it comes to macro photography.

Cactus is one of the hardiest plant that I know and it is really low maintenance. I have yet to try looking after a cactus. I hope that I don’t kill it instead.

“cabbage like” cactus

This cactus reminds me of a cabbage head. It sure looks looks like a great  plant to add to  garden to give it a  rustic theme.

This bloom must be from the same family as the one pictured above. It was  on a branch instead of on the ground.

I personally prefer the cactus green then dark brown/ purplish.  The petals are more define in the 2nd picture above then the third one.

This cactus reminds me of un-riped bananas minus the spikes at the end.

Do you have cactus in your garden?

Yummy Foods

Ramen Noodles
Ramen Noodles

Ramen is the kids favourite food. We have it every week if possible as they love it. It is not easy to boil the stock for the ramen as it takes hours to achieve the rich taste. It is really yummy and I have yet to learn how to create my own soup stock at home.

I guess that I have to do more research before I can attempt making my own ramen stock.

Fried Omelette

One of our hawker center favourites is this dish- Chai Tow  Kuay
( Fried Raddish Cake) .  Sometimes they add oysters together with this dish and it becomes an oyster omelette ( Orh Luak).

I don’t eat this that often as it is high in carbs and being deep fried it has way too much calories then I should be taking.

Sushi Mixed Bento

One of my favourite bento- cold noodles, sushi and sashimi. These are some of my favourite Japanese foods which I eat quite often.

What have you been eating lately?
