Gaston Luga Backpack

When I was contacted by Gaston Luga to do a collaboration, I did not think twice to say YES! Even though I'm not a lifestyle blogger but I really love the design of these backpacks

I love the Praper range! It was love at first sight with the Olive & Black backpack. Other than Praper, they have Classic and Classy design. Do check out their website at for the full range of backpacks for men and women.

Birthday Cakes 2015

I made a resolution in 2015 that I will try to make as many birthday cakes as possible for people around me! So as the year 2015 is ending soon, time to reflect! Yes I did fulfill this resolution as I baked 16 cakes in total which break my own record since I started to have interest in baking many years ago! A summary of the birthday cakes I made in the year 2015 for family, friends and colleague. Though not perfect and far from professional but really took lots of effort to do it. 

Strawberry shortcake. A special request from Aunt Peggy for her cousin!
