why does putting on a band-aid give a nice feeling? i've always thought this ever since i was a kid.

(not from the obvious fact that it's a comforting protection for the wound, but more that it's there and you can see/feel the stretchy plastery fabric)

why can't i make the right decision on the spot!!!?!?!?

i always have to change it and then feel stupid cos the person i have to tell will probably think i'm the most indecisive person in the world..... *tear....T_______T*

there was even another person who had the same decision to make RIGHT INFRONT of me on that day. and still i didn't realise to do the same thing she did...

my possible outcomes: unable to reach, missing out on something for an alternative that is wasting time AND money.. :(

*update: solved. have to meet the person i've been bothering next monday though -___-"

(since it's really late and i just watched life on mars...)

"life on mars" is this new tv show about a police/detective that after getting hit by a car, wakes up transported to the past to the year 1973.
and when he looks at his new surroundings, he thinks to himself (not these words perse..), "if this is not real, how can there be so much detail?" - not believing how he could perceive so much of his new 1973 world - the people, clothes, look, feel.

and can't that be said about the 'real' world he was supposedly living in? ie. the world we're all living in?.... if this wasn't real, how can we possibly imagine things that we ourselves don't comprehend? like the incredibly complex scientific discoveries that physicists make about the world.

in other words, if we (ordinary people) don't even understand it (like these new discoveries), how can we imagine other people capable of knowing/explaining them?

this is hard to explain.
i'll stop my (probably non-sensical to anyone other than myself) rambling now.

DAIGO / ペンペン

my new phase: Daigo☆Stardust and his appearance on tensai shimura doubutsuen (the animal show with aiba from arashi)

someone commented on youtube that he has a "glitter complex" ahahhahahhaha!! ahhh...

(somehow both songs are space related. but anyway can't stop laughing at the first video when he unflaps the batwing/cape thing lol)

now he's in a rock band "BREAKERZ". kakkoi

and here's the link to my youtube playlist with the tensai shimura doubutsuen clips.

(all this from watching love shuffle)

puffin muffin

recipe from BILL GRANGER

120g unsalted butter (at room temp.)
225g caster sugar
2 eggs
1½ tsp vanilla extract
170ml sour cream
210g self-raising flour
¼tsp baking powder
sea salt
150g mixed berries - strawberry, blueberry, raspberry (tossed with flour so doesn't sink to bottom of muffin when baked)

1. preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
line 12-hole (probably more) muffin tin with paper cases.
2. cream butter and sugar using electric mixer until light and fluffy.
3. add eggs one at a time, mixing.
4. add vanilla, sour cream and mix.
5. sift flour, baking powder, pinch of salt and mix with wooden spoon until almost combined. (don't want to over mix in the next step)
6. add berries, gently fold.
7. put mixture into cases.
8. bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

seriously this is the best muffin recipe (according to me) ever since it's not too heavy, and you can really taste the fruits, and the slight sourness of the berries is OISHIIII. and plus the batter tastes like cookie dough before it's baked mmmmmmmmmmmm.

fimo suprimo!

finally posting the pictures of the "face badges" that i made for last christmas out of fimo polymer clay

the final products
top left is a magnet, and bottom right is a diana f+ lomo badge

the hairstyle-making process which looked funny hahahhaha:

everyone starts with an afro

then with an alien/idiot hair style

then tadah!

il était une bonne journée

finished my to-do list for today! : )

cleaned the rabbits' hutch, and got them to return inside without much complaint. and gave them new fruit - cherry - which they ate willingly!

went to maroubra to finally print photos from the japan trip
two years ago hehe, and while waiting went to blockbuster - rented blood diamond;
deposited money at the bank which took a few seconds : )
went to the library and found the miyako kanamori sock & glove book, and also rented the rain man dvd (just realised they HAVE dvds!);
saw vanessa working at baker's;
coles to get cat food, and found a bonus on-sale shampoo!;
the photos came out clearer and larger than expected! so attempt to cut costs didn't seem too desperate : D

got home, took a cold shower which made me smile,
et c'est tout : )

i'm sleepy, but can't stop reading this food blog:
and i feel like my fingerprint's disappearing from scrolling on the laptop pad for too long.
