Weekend in Instagram

Valentines’ Day weekend was really special for me this year. This year I finally get some couple time to spend the weekend with R without the kids.  We  were lucky that our parents were willing to take care of the kids on our behalf so that we could get the weekend off.

I flew off to Taipei to meet up with R and spend the whole weekend with him.  Our first destination was a private Sakura Tea garden where one could admire the flowers.

On Valentines’s day itself we went to Tam Shui and visited the World Chocolate Wonderland which is situated at Tam Shui fisherman’s wharf. It was the first time that we tried out making chocolate lollipops and it was certainly fun.

It was the first time that I tried chocolate infused pasta and chocolate curry rice. It tasted really unique and I’m sure the kids would have loved to have chocolate in everything that they eat too.

Besides  going to the seaside we also went waterfall viewing. I was fortunate to be able to experience this magnificent view  at Shi Fen.  The last time R and I went waterfall viewing was back in 2013 when we went to Jeju on holidays with Tiger girl.

It was off to the seaside again on Sunday as we went to view the unique rock formations off the port of the seaside town of Keelong.

We  visited a few different mountainsides and seasides and were fortunate to see many many different flowers over the weekend.  It was certainly better then only getting a bouquet of flowers to admire.

Will be uploading the rest of the hundred of pictures which I took with my camera over the Chinese New Year break during the end of this week.

How was your Valentine’s Day weekend?

Fancy an ice-cream Sundae?

What would be your favourite flavor?

Tiger girl and I started doing Hama Bead Crafting last month. Since then we have done a couple of new pieces and as you can see her current obsession is on ice-cream.

Tiger girl has been having a cough so I have made her refrained from  eating ice-cream. We have been “making” ice-cream though using the beads.

A Ballerina

Besides food related items that we made this ballerina which Tiger girl spotted on Pinterest.  My little girl loves pink and insisted that we started creating this particular one after printing out the template.

Pink Horse

My girl really loves Pink. You can see the color here in this horse which we created. I added on the “Cutie mark” to this creation as it was suppose to be a relative to the My Little Pony series of Ponies which we created earlier on.

Rainbow bear and Love -A-Lot Bear

Besides ponies Tiger girl loves bears too. We create Rainbow Bear and Love -A-Lot bear based on the templates we found. I remember back then when I was  a child we used to watch the Care Bears on TV and I had a Love- A-Lot soft toy to cuddle.

Holding the Hama craft creations to play with is so much more fun then just seeing them in 2D. We created this mask using disposable chopsticks as the “stick” to support it. Surprisingly the hama beads were quite heavy and we required two sticks instead of one for the handle.

Totoro Keychain

Besides creating Hama crafts with the girl I made this Totoro Keychain above as a Valentine’s Day present for another friend of mine.

What have you been creating lately?
