trying to be more creative with jingga’s meal box
i’m reading skenario remang-remang by jessica huwae.
jessica is an old friend of mine. i met her through this blog years ago when i still lived in bali. i haven’t finish reading the book but this collection of short stories are so much better than her first book. most of the themes are unusual for short stories and gloomy. but i like this more than the predicted happy ending story.
i was so in love with the chocolate muffin i made the last time, i made it again in cake version.
now, i can’t stop eating it!
i made these flowers out of felt fabrics for jingga’s costume. she has a fashion show at school with clothes created by parents.
at first, i wanted to make this jelly belly costume (photo from here), which i think is super cute. but jingga refused to wear it. maybe it’s just too hot and heavy to be covered with plastic and balls.
in love with this ikat pants.
lately pattern in pants is back into trend. but this ikat is so indonesian. my favorite ones are the tosca and the khaki.
which one is your favorite?
flowers for algernon is such a good book with unique theme. it’s also very touching. after finish reading it, i still kept thinking about charlie’s life.
the next book i’m reading is reconstructing amelia, another book i got from book depository. the movie of this book is in the making now. this is also an interesting book. a bit like lovey bones but in more present time.
i’ve been baking so often lately. this time is carrot cake with the same recipe i use from time to time. and like the last muffin, this one is also popped up nicely. i suspected is the new baking powder i used.
this chocolate muffin popped up nicely. happy!
recipe from here.
*i didn’t have yoghurt so i just used more milk*
the book i’m reading now: flowers for algernon by daniel keyes.
i got the book from book depository (yay for free shipping). the book was published in 1960s, but i didn’t know about this book up until a few months ago. it’s a famous book, and turned into a movie.
it’s about a retarded man who went through a surgery and turned into a smart guy. a very touching book. i wonder how the end of the book…
