chinese new year rush

today is chu(1) 4. *thinks* ya.. i'm so tired. omg. we've literally been out of the house for the past 3 days, and there's another place to go later. well, i intend to be fashionably late. having a car means you want to cover as many places as possible. we've been around the whole island, from tampines to woodlands to bukit batok and back into hougang again.. all in one day. either that or its hougang to bukit timah. today we go toa payoh. *dies*

on the flipside, having a car is great! i got to visit the nurseries at thomson even though it was pouring but we got to play pretend at being romantic while looking at flowers. the chill room at far east flora is a must go if you love to 'frolic among the roses'. i got me 2 bunches of roses at $14 for 20 stalks and hydrangeas blooms at 6$ each! w00t!

the ones in front are pink and cream while the taller ones are yam (like the ones we had for our wedding last year). i had such a long time choosing the hydrangeas cos they had all the lovely colors like pinks and purples and whites and in between antique blues. OoOoOoOoooo.. the DH left me in there cos it was soooo cold.

the place was so worth the visit that we went back again after having dinner on tuesday night :P just for a after dinner stroll...and i got a pot of lavender plant, after thinking long and hard.

see exhibit B on the right. that's the one we bought. apparently it's been imported from italy. the sad looking lot on the left (A) are the ones i've been trying to grow from seed since last year augest. those are the hokkaido variety, but i think they smell better.

we also saw rosemary plants. it was very tempting but i still have a boxful of the dried stuff at home. maybe next time.

we also got a pot of chili plant at another nusrsery on sunday near my mums.

it's really cute but i think the plant is dying. the leaves are shriveling up and i'm am sure that it's well watered. maybe it just doesnt like the house.

random note: my braces are cutting into my skin.

all these plants are cluttering up the place. and contribute to my CNY decorations. time to say ooooo.....

new curtain ties in yellow with little oranges

the pussy willow flowered so i quickly poured the water away. i like them to stay white and fluffy.

mao mao was sleeping happy on the freshly laundered table cloth till she puked on it.
