Two of Us

Kitchen

It’s been a fabulous weekend and I’m feeling a little bummed that it’s going to be Monday in a matter of minutes.

We hit the Pixar: 20 Years of Animation exhibition at the Singapore Science Centre yesterday and I’m so glad we did. We are both huge fans of Pixar and being able to see the hard work, blood, sweat and tears that went into creating films like The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille and Up was an amazing experience. It’s a little like the Ghibli Museum, although not half as charming.

Pixar was, ironically, followed by Shrek Forever After. Which was funny, fun and very clever. Go watch!

Anyway, I just wanted to put up pictures of our kitchen at east end because we’ve changed it up a little. It’s probably one of the smallest kitchens you will ever see, which is why I am constantly finding ways and means to store our things. Thanks to husband and a handy power drill borrowed from my father-in-law, we’ve added rails from Ikea and made the kitchen walls a little more useful.

Up goes the new spice jars
And that's how tiny the kitchen is!

There’s a nice little story to share about the spice jars. Every time husband and I hit the nearby Ikea, I’ve always picked up the jars, sold in sets of four, and think about buying them. I’m anal about organisation – thanks to reading blogs like Apartment Therapy – and wanted to have identical jars for that neat, Stepford Wives look. But I never did buy them because I wasn’t sure it was absolutely necessary.

One day, when I was over at Squirt’s place, she plonked me in front of a few paper bags and told me to pick out whatever I wanted from the bags. Apparently, a friend of hers was shifting to a new place and was getting rid of some stuff, which were either new or near new. And in those bags were three sets of the very same jars that I had always wanted to buy.

Score!

And that’s the end of the post.

  1. Is that a toaster in the corner by the sink? How does it work? I think we had one when I was a kid – a 1970s brown and orange one! 🙂

    I love looking at other people’s kitchens, and yours is so cute! It’s small but so well appointed.

  2. Reminds me of the kitchen in Julie&Julia. She had a space rack over her stove!

    How do you create so much goodies with a small space? My stuff are everywhere and I feel like it’s never enough space. OMG. I must learn from you… organization and all! XD

  3. @ Dotz – Thanks for the spice jars! 😉

    @ melly – the key phrase is “every now and then” heh. BUt really, when there is a will, there is a way.

    @ hannah – yes that’s a toaster oven. It’s kind of like a mini oven – you can toast bread in it or even “grill” meat in it.

    @ Sarah – I want Julia’s kitchen. It’s super duper cool! All those pots hanging on the rack…sigh. Haha sometimes I don’t buy stuff cos I know I don’t have space. 3M hooks help – my cabinets are full of ’em, with things like roasting rack, colanders, pans…etc hanging off them!
