Crafty Art Market 2


I woke up early on 19th February to get ready for the Crafty Art Market 2.


Since I have been down with a nasty flu, I had second thoughts as to whether I should attend as a vendor.

I am glad that I did!!!

Almost all my Owl Keychain pouches were snapped up!

The crowd

It was a BLAST!

The weather was perfect.

Great crowd and sales was pretty good.

The vendors

My only regret was not having the time to check out all the other stalls as I was alone manning my store.

Cupcakes for Lunar New Year


This Chinese New Year is a bit different as the first day of the Lunar New Year coincided with my daughter’s birthday. Yes!!!!! my little girl turned 13 on the 1st day of the Lunar New Year.

Instead of the normal Chinese New Year cookies, I baked some cupcakes for this occasion. Reckoned it might be a challenge buying a cake on Chinese New Year’s day as most bakeries will be closed.

So… I baked 80 chocolate cupcakes and brought them all the way back to my in-law’s place in Johor. I love this cupcake recipe as it uses yogurt and it is not too sweet. The yogurt makes the texture of the cupcakes really fine, soft and moist. Yummy….


I normally do not like to frost my cupcakes as I am not a fan of icing and cream. However, since this is a specially occasion, I frosted the cupcakes with butter icing. My girl and I frosted them till midnight (all 80 of them).

We tried to arrange the cupcakes in the shape of a Rabbit (as this is the year of the Rabbit). Hahaha.. looked more like a dog to me ;)

Anyway, we had a great time and my girl had a very memorable birthday.

Since Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days… it is still not too late to wish everyone
