Durian Christmas Tree, Anyone?

The most popular Christmas image spammed in messaging services this year -- the Malaysian Durian Tree!

This two-metre tall durian tree was constructed by parishioners of  The Good News Fellowship Church in Kuching, Malaysia.

200 durians were used to create the masterpiece!

'Twas The Night Before Christmas

Cookiefying my favourite bit from my most favourite Christmas poem.
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse....

Krabby Patty

This rather unusual burger was on the menu of a seafood joint that newly opened in my neck of the woods.
The Softy Crabby Burger consists of a couple of deep-fried soft-shell crabs that are topped with a pomegranate and mango salsa and sandwiched between a charcoal sesame seed bun. It comes with an interesting pink side salad! I was told the dressing is made of Dragon Fruit, hence the color!

The taste was rather unique and I must say, I really enjoyed my meal.

I couldn't help thinking that this could be the secret ingredient in Sponge Bob's Krabby Patty - crabs! It does make sense. Crabs are cannibalistic and there are no other crabs in Bikini Bottom other than Mr. Krabs himself and his mom! And he is, after all, cheap and would do anything for money!

Food for thought?

I was clearing out a closet when I found a box containing several skeins of yarn and a work-in-progress sweater — a project I had abandoned when my eldest son was born. Back in those days before my boys came along, I knitted quite a bit.

 I took out the sweater from the box and thought I could just pick up where I left off.

I gave up after knitting just  a few rows. God knows how many stitches I had dropped!  All that concentration and counting was making my head spin! And I itched each time the mohair sweater came into contact with my skin. Seriously, knitting in the tropics where the temps are in the 90's is crazy! How the hell did I do it in those days!??!!

I am so done with knitting!

Ha! Then I found Sonja's video on YouTube.

Who needs yarn when you have royal icing!

Showing off my 'knit' projects!
