on one of the trip to singapore, i came too early to the airport. i decided to take the earlier flight. i arrived a few hours before the meeting. after browsing what to do while waiting, i went to mint museum of toys. a walking distance from my meeting place.
i thought it would me a big building with outdoor area, but it turned out to be a narrow shop house, almost invisible from the street. most of the collection are toys from the old times. i’m not sure the children nowadays recognize them. some of them reminded me of my childhood.
it’s a collection of short stories that have connection to each other but can be read separately. the theme of the stories is about music industry and around it. i don’t love all of the stories but what i love the most is when the stories tell about the future.
and i finished reading partikel by dee in a day. i’m not a fast reader and i still had to take care jingga and did my work in between. the book didn’t let me down.
it’s a still as great as the previous supernovas. i love the theme about human and nature. and the mystery part hold me from stop reading the book. and the traveling! moving from bogor to kalimantan to london to african countries and south america.
now i can’t wait for the next one. i hope i don’t have to wait for another 8 years.
ps: i lost my supernova 2: akar. i was still living in bali when a friend borrowed it and i never get it back
i’ve been wanting to create a garland for jingga’s room. one night, when jingga was already asleep and i’ve done all the work for that day, i began to make the garland. i just used all the things i have at home.
the green pattern paper was bought in tobucil more than a year ago, the pink pattern paper was from jingga’s birthday last month and the orange paper was probably from the wedding day. i used wool thread for the string. and after drawing the letters one by one, it’s finally done.
when i was drawing the letters, i kept thinking why oh why i gave my kid a long spelling name. 6 letters. why not just simple 3 or 4 letters. but hey, longer garland looks better.
i hang the garland by the window. since it’s against the daylight, it’s only can be seen during the night, when we turn on the room’s light.
risoles is one of my favorite snack. but somehow i’m just too lazy to make them. i hate to cook something twice, like for risoles, i have to prepare for the skin first.
i was blogwalking when i found this recipe. the risoles doesn’t need any skin making! i can use plain bread. and the filling is just cheese, smoked beef and mayonnaise (i didn’t add egg, don’t like the smell). and voila, my first ever risoles. not bad at all.
