Capture the Everyday: Feet

Capture the Everyday from Adventuroo

Capture the Everyday is about getting you to capture those everyday moments in your life! Each Thursday, Mel from Adventuroo issue a simple challenge to capture something that’s a part of your daily life. You can post just a picture or add some words to go along with it. You’ll have a week to get it done and then she’ll issue another. It’s a quick, easy way to start capturing those little parts of life we sometimes take for granted.

This week’s assignment: Feet

There’s nothing better than a pair of tiny pink feet of babies. These little feetses are oh so cute and oh so dainty, and it reminds you of the fact that one day, these tootsies won’t be so tiny anymore.

I may not have a bub of my own but I certainly have one that I can borrow. In this picture, my nephew Rai is all of 10 weeks old and sleeping in his stroller. I love that little tyke.

But! Although I don’t have a human baby, I do have two feline ones whom I love as much as I would my human baby. I love Emi’s little feet-paws because of the adorable pink padding on the underfoot.

This week’s assignment: Summer food

This little red dot that I am living on sits snugly near the equator so everyday is a Summer day for me. And what better to quench the summer heat than to indulge in a ice-cold drink?

Lemonade it is!

Lemonade

Nothing feels quite as awesome as a refreshing cold drink sliding down your throat on a scorching day. Which, in Singapore, is practically everyday. Gah.

I had quite a bit of pain making this jug of lemonade for a picnic with the friends because I don’t have a juicer and was manually squeezing the juice out of those pesky lemons. I think there were seven of them altogether and my hands went sort of numb.

Needless to say, I stopped making lemonade for a while.

Okay, so it’s not quite a summer food but I daresay it counts. Heh.

Capture the Everyday: Celebrating Freedom

I have always enjoyed the Capture the Everyday series on Lady J’s blog and thought I’d jump in as well. It’d be a nice repository of memories and moments. If anything, it may very well force me to take more photos, which is always a good thing!

This week’s assignment: Celebrating freedom

I come from a pretty traditional Chinese family, where the Self often comes second to the Family or the Society. It’s rather Confucian in that sense, which is hardly surprising given that I live in Singapore.

When I got married and moved out of my Mom’s flat and into our own, I felt a certain sense of liberation. Oh, it’s not that I didn’t love my Mommy or that living with her was a pain. Having Mommy around definitely had its perks: breakfast was lovingly prepared every morning, dinner was kept warm for me after work, I always had freshly laundered clothes. But moving out made me a more responsible adult and suddenly, I could do things that I couldn’t do in my mama’s house.

Such as cook. Bake. Play music and dance in the living room. Walk around in my underpants. Buy clothes and shoes without sneaking around. Enjoy a glass of wine in solitude. Put up a Christmas tree. Adopt two crazy funny cats.

So yes, everything that I do today which I never did before is a little celebration of the freedom that I got from moving out and growing into my own person.
