APEC long weekend

some long weekend....all it did was rain. :/

really digging photography right now. it's amazing how the little details just pop right out when you start paying attention. made a ham & cheese quiche for lunch and tried to snap a few shots then, but there was just too much activity in the kitchen and i couldnt get the lighting i wanted. So instead of getting in the way of a couple of hungry guys preparing lunch, i wisely decided to venture into the garden to practise on the plants there. didnt think they minded the little bit of attention lavished onto them for a few minutes. heh.

geez, the close-ups make me feel like i'm somewhere in Asia. sighs.

the quiche turned out immensely moist and satifsying, but i suppose baby was a tad overzealous when adding the salt. see, the recipe called for smoked ham (which is really quite salty), but all we had in stock were some slices of virginian ham, so he decided he should rightly compensate for it. well if there's one thing i've learnt, it's probably to be more cautious when handing him the salt shaker again. into the grilled ham went salt. *shake* hmm, probably more in the egg + sour cream mixture. *shake shake* actually make that heaps more since the salt in australia doesnt seem salty enough, he reasoned. *shaking vigorously now* well you get the idea.

took a lesisurely walk to QVB via Darling Harbour after our dejeuner to buy the suit he had on hold for his conference. picked out a subtly-striped light blue shirt and a fetching checked silk tie in a darker tone of blue. the ensemble came together beautifully...must say i've got pretty darn good taste. hahaha!

alright, back to King Arthur. Clive's on! woohoo! :D
