Last year, I shared how I was inspired by Attraction, a shadow theatre dance group. Recently, I stumbled across another artist – Queenie Liao who adds her spin to photography. A mother of 3 children, she wanted to capture the precious growing up moments of her children. She did so in a creative way by using clothes to create fairytale like backdrops around her child while he is sleeping and take amazing, adorable photographs.
I was unable to attach Yahoo’s Flickr moment video so here is a YouTube Video on Queenie’s photography collection.
If you like Queenie’s video, do check out Adele Enersen’s video who Queenie list as an influence for her wonderland collection. Equally cute!
Enjoy! And may you have sweet dreams in wonderland!
To join in the spirit of love, I have created Cupid printables for decorating gifts. For anyone who may be interested, it is free for download over at www.mrpartyideas.com.

Hooray on my first comic strip for 2014!
Valentine’s day is coming in a few days. And while it is all lovely dovey, being single on Valentine’s day can be a rather miserable feeling. So here’s a shout out to all the singles (including myself) – Remember, some bunny loves you!
And if you have abundance of love, do share a little bit of your love to your single friends by sending them the above little comic strip to let them know you care about them in a bunny funny way.
Chinese New Year came so early this year! It is not even February! This short time frame means that I have been rushing to clean and pack my house ever since I came back from my Bangkok holiday. Phew! I think we are almost ready to let the relatives visit our house. Just don’t open THAT cupboard in the corner!
Last year, I shared how my family always have a steamboat reunion dinner to usher in the new year. This year is no exception! Here are pictures of what our steamboat dinner looks like. Don’t be mistaken! We are not vegetarians! It just so happen everyone in our family loves vegetables.
And because I did the grocery shopping and I have a picky stomach, I get to choose the ingredients for the steamboat. Which means my favourites like mushrooms - shiitake, button, hon-shimeji, enoki (also known as golden mushrooms), shabu shabu thin pork bellies slices, tau pok (bean curd puffs) and tofu! The rest are my dad’s favourites – prawns and squid.
This year, Mum remembered (after constant nagging by Dad) to make fresh spicy Chilli dip which is so appetising! It consists of chillies (big and tiny variants), lime juice and garlic blended together into a paste. Add light soya sauce and sesame oil to own preference. So there you go, my Mum’s secret recipe of sorts.
Happy Chinese New Year! Wishing good health to all! And may your wishes come true!
PS: Rusty is suppose to be a year older but it seems that he just got younger in the doodle. Subconsciously rejecting age. Haha!
My mum has this tradition of getting Chinese New Year cards for my aunt which we will all sign and add out little well wishes in the card. It is a good practice and this year is no exception. This coming Chinese New Year, we are ushering the year of the horse and the following are the cards this year!
I took a look at the cards and I was like “Mum, why are you using last year’s cards (which is the year of the snake)?” And my mum is like, “Aren’t they horses?“
My mum never fails to make me smile.
PS: I will have to give it to the shopkeepers for pasting on a small horse picture to pass off the card for the year of the horse.
