Pj abbey's

And these, my friends, are the actual yummy pictures from the oh-so-comfy pj abbey's in orange. This is how you do brunch right :) I was very happy with my smoked salmon eggs benedict :) it's soooo good!! We went there last Saturday. You can see my previous wishful post about pj abbey's here.I'm so glad we get to go there finally.

While we were there, there was a group of round 15-20 ladies with pearl necklaces and fancy Easter dresses... it turns out to be the Ladies of Orange association! Boy do they know how to have fun!

Roses are not just red!

One of the good things that came up from the kitchen sink fiasco last week is that I found a square vase under the sink that I forgot I had.. All the roses were blooming so beautifully in the garden, so I thought I'll try making a multi-color arrangement to celebrate the earth day :)

Island Clutters

I felt really good this weekend! I overcame my laziness and finally got around to do some serious cleaning around the house. I'm still kinda recovering from my flu, so I tried not to get out so much... I think the spring wind does not have quite a positive effect with my health... but I mopped the floors, cleaned some counters, and scrubbed the bathrooms. Clean house feels so good.

But.... on the downside, the kitchen sink was clogged. again. Boy, the plumber must've not done a not so good job! Plus, when I called them up again, they said that there's no warranty with the service that they did on Friday. So that means that they will charge extra for coming back to re-fix the sink. Oh... these are just some of the joy of owning a house, right?

Good thing we still have some loquats on the trees to sweeten the bitterness of paying extra $120 for re-fixing a sink. Pictures and stories about loquat coming soon :)

Anywayyyy.. originally I wanted to post about the 3 tiers servers that I wanted to purchase for the kitchen island. Here's some that I'm seriously considering to buy:

I kinda like the bamboo one better.... but... the 2nd one is so vintage that I can't help but to swoon all over it...

One of those days

This is one of those days where everything is just not going so well...
The kitchen sink that I just cleaned on Wednesday got clogged, couldn't wake up this morning, and got into a minor accident on my way to work. Nothing major, thank God! Just some scratches on the back bumper... but still enough to kinda ruin my Friday. Got to work late because of the accident. Have to make up the 30 minutes of lateness by having a short lunch. Didn't bring lunch. Hungry and cranky and sad and mad at the whole situation.

So, the best thing to do? Plan for a nice Saturday brunch and hope things will go better from now. I had so many plans for this weekend... Disneyland tonight maybe... brunch tomorrow at PJ Abbey's.... go to a friend's baby shower... and go to the pet expo on Sunday.

I found some pictures here from PJ Abbey.... looks delicious, right? Hmm... brunch... I feel better already. :)

 I can't wait!

Power clean

My stove never looked this good since my mom left last June!! I had to enlist the help of Mr.B to scrub the toughest spots coz I couldn't do it no more, but boy... The satisfaction of having a nearly new stove again is endless :)
