Him Indoors has always wanted to have this kind of chest of drawers since he saw them in Big Bang Theory. He searched and searched but couldn’t find the right one, so he recycled our old cabinet to this new cool one, amazing!

I express myself by making this delicious leche flan, following my big brother’s recipe (10 egg yolks, 2 cans of evaporated milk, 1 can condensed milk, rind of lemon). Everyone enjoyed eating this yummy dessert!

I express myself by taking photographs – this one was our garden taken this morning. As you can see, the snow is melting, it’s getting warmer here. It has rained all day, snow’s all gone – yay!
