To Do List

I'm back from Japan and these are the things on my To Do List, all equally pressing.

1. Get my dreadful skin back from scaly to smooth.

2. Get my equally dreadful hair back from straw to silk.

3. Get my body back in shape. Belly begone!

4. Stock (almost) empty fridge with food. Kids need to eat even if I don't.

5. Sort the insane number of photos I took. Where do I even begin?

6. Unpack, unpack, unpack.

7. Pass gifts to family and friends.

8. Pay credit card bills. Oh my god ... this one I'm not looking forward to. Sigh.

9. Find a way to replenish the cash after I pay the bills. Anyone wants to hire me?

10. Recover from the holiday.


  1. 11. Post up all those glorious food photos and make us jealous :D

  2. Japan !!! jealous! Can't wait to see the photos!

  12. A Big Hi from love2cook!!!

    Hi Ju, I feel really good have discovered your lovely blog! I'm simply amazed with your recipes and photography! I'm just learning with dlsr.
    Since I'm a newbie to baking world, I wish to try out your cake recipes soon. I see most of your butter cake recipes are similar, except for some addition like orange, lemon etc. Simply loved it coz it'll be easy for me to master butter cakes! visit me if U have time ;)

  13. Welcome back Ju! Looking forward to some interesting stories! And maybe some Japanese infused recipes!!? ;-)

  14. Japan is one of my favorite places... I'm sure you took amazing shots and we will be seeing them shortly. As for straw hair, egg and yogurt always do the trick... puts the zing back in dull hair!

  15. You're all so funny!!! Thanks everyone, for dropping a note. :) Great to be back!

  16. Haha I know what you mean! Happy holidays and good luck with all of that :).
