Sorry for quite a vague introduction as I just found out that I will have to move next weekend and start my new job on 8th September, which is a good news for me but I'm never an organised person and packing & moving are always stressful for me.

Red Thai Curry

Red Thai Curry
Red Thai Curry with Cauldron marinated tofu pieces

I got this recipe from the carton that comes with Cauldron marinated tofu pieces. It was originally called 'Jungle Curry' and I added coconut milk to it and twisted the recipe a bit. It was my first time cooking curry dishes with coconut milk and it turns out to be edible. I'm never a cooking person. To most of my friends, whenever we are in the kitchen, the best job for me will be cutting up vegetables. Even Miky thinks I'm trying to murder garlic cloves, as I always try to crush the garlic with the side of a knife really loudly and it scares him.

I'm trying to include lots of brocolli and carrots into my diet as they are the classic food that can help prevent cancer and also food that contain high anti-oxidant such as blueberries. I saw photos of this 27 year old girl having tumour in her breasts on Flickr and it worries me. It was really sad to read that she tried to go to a cancer support group and she found no one there at about her age. I've been reading some articles online on cancer prevention and been telling about it to my aunt (who's a nose cancer survivor) and my mother. I will try and stay as healthy as possible and eat less junk food, fried food, food containing sugar, salt and dairy products.

Cover of Cotton Time Magazine Issue July 09
I've received my first every issue of Cotton Time magazine about two weeks ago on a Friday. I was over the moon, even though it cost about £26 including postage from US, which is a bit ridiculous as it's a Japanese sewing / craft magazine published in Japan and I had to get it from US. I think the price is fair enough considering that if I had bought it from someone in Japan, it will cost almost the same with longer waiting time for the post to arrive. The following pages are some of my favourites craft projects featured in the magazine:

I felt amazed to see this cutie cat being featured in a craft / sewing magazine. It just reminds me of Jelly, the cat I used to have. She likes cat grass as well and will go crazy for cat nip toys.

Cotton Time Magazine July 09
It brings back a mixed feelings that I have for Jelly. She's a darling and a hard work too. I didn't have the energy, patience and ability to take care of her by myself. It was my first time living by myself, the bills and rent had eaten away half of my monthly salary. I felt so lonely, even with the companion of Jelly. I could tell that she's lonely and desperately in need of the attention that I couldn't give her most of the time when I'm at work. I had trouble litter-train her and most of the time I end up coming back from work having to pick up poops under the bath room sink. She wasn't like that when I was living in a shared house. There's no cat flap for her to roam outside whenever she wanted. I know there are people who can keep indoor cats perfectly fine but I really didn't anticipate that I am not that type of person who can do it and have it all. I keep hoping that one day, when I have a home of my own and a family to come home too, maybe I'll be able to have pets again.

Blythe Doll (Sold) & a page from my Moleskine

Enchanted Petal Blythe Doll - PM me if you're interested
Blythe Doll Enchanted Petal (Sold)

I'm selling one of my girls (Blythe Doll), Enchanted Petal as I'm trying to downsize my blythe doll collection and gain extra money while waiting for my work permit to get processed. She has been neglected, unfortunately. I still love her a lot and this is quite a hard decision for me. I'm her first owner and she's in the UK. All her original stuff are included...original box, shipping box, all clothes, boots, stand, blythe doll trading card, original pull ring. I've included a light green frog pull ring for her which I think will suit her well with her hair colour. Her hair has been washed with fabric conditioner once and no other customisation has been done on her. Her right foot is slightly bent when she came to me in her box. She's a lovely girl, but I've never brought her outside my home before and I hope that she will go to a lovely home soon.

I did some drawing in my Moleskine last night before catching up with my sleep. Miky has returned from his New Jersey, New York & Niagara Falls trip and bought me some souvenirs. The Niagara Falls snow globe is one of the souvenirs. I hope to visit it one day. I re-watched Spirit: The Stallion of Cimarron as the scenery of the cartoon movie reminds me of water falls, grand canyon and most of the landmarks in the US. Maybe one day, I'll get the chance to actually step on American soil.
