Candle Light...





Saturday night...just quiet and beautiful candle light...perfect.

Glass Noodle Salad...

This a dish that I loved in Thailand, I've improvised a bit...
If you want the basics, just Google the recipe.

Made with 'Mung Bean' noodles, Herbs, Spring Onions and Shallots,
Black Fungus, Celery and Tomato...
Shrimp and Shejimi Mushrooms.
And of course Fish Sauce and Lime and Chili dressing.

New Camera Lens...

On the last day of my holiday, my old 18-55 lens took a fall and is now unusable.
So meet the replacement, a 50mm f/1.8...just purchased this morning.

First snaps around the house...my lovely pashmina.

Red candle and lace.

Carved arm of my cherry wood chair.

I'm going to have fun getting to know how to use this new lens.
