Wiener Chriskindlmarkt--The Vienna Christmas Market



A few years ago, we found ourselves in Vienna during the first week of December. Despite the freezing weather, I think this is one of the best times to visit Vienna because the streets are filled with holiday cheer. It is quite an experience specially for us who live on the other side of the globe.

Last Baking Day

 
Today was our last baking day! It's been a tradition for us to bake lots of pound cakes every Christmas using an old buttercake recipe that we always enjoyed while growing up.  Come to think of it, I've actually been baking all these cakes for the past 25 Christmases! (No, I'm not that old, I just started baking at 10 years old--hehe)

The whole mass-baking production started when I was single and living at home. There was one year mom and dad were abroad until December 23 and  nothing was happening in the house in the 3 weeks leading up to Christmas.

My New Look!


I wish I could say that the "new look" referred to me, but with the Christmas holidays, no way. I should be eating this healthful delicious salad here--haricot verts with thin curls of foie gras--instead of all the poundcake that is being baked now at home (it's called "pound" cake for a reason!). Nope, the new look is an experiment on the blog!

I've been in touch with fellow bloggers who have been critiquing my blog (I know, I know, a proper blogger should be linking at this point--but I'm rushing out the door so I'll do a proper post on this later), and wanted to do some changes right away.

If you are one of my ten loyal readers, can you please tell me what you think of this lay-out? Those of you who get my posts by email, tsk tsk, you are missing so much!! I still have to design my header and all the fun design stuff. But kids have to be picked up from school, lunch with a girlfriend, Christmas shopping, workers in the house, visit the office, Barangay Xmas party tonight... I have to get off this computer ahora mismo!!!

I'll get there...hopefully in these last two weeks of 2010~

The Room at Marina Bay Sands


Here is the room at the new Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.This is a Horizon room facing the water. 
I forgot to take a picture of the wall facing the bed but you can see that there is a flat screen TV across the bed, and to the left of the TV is an executive desk. I prefer taking daytime shots of rooms, except that if I waited till the next morning, the room would be too messy. This was taken the evening we walked into the room, so it's still at its neatest!
