King of Fruits

Not everyone I know loves Durian. Some has neutral feeling towards them. Some can have them as meals and some just can't even stand the smell of it.

As for me, I'm not a HUGE fan of durian but I don't mind it either.

My brother-in-law likes durian and I decided to make some durian cupcakes for him as his belated birthday celebration!

Topped with Cream Cheese...

It was good! The taste of the fruit is rich. My husband prefers it without the cream. (Generally, he don't like cakes with cream.)

King of Fruits Cupcake.. anyone? :D

In four months, he'll be TWO! how do I ensure that he's still as adorable?

James has been attending play school since last month. The teachers LOVED him and I have to say, sending him to play school at 1.5 years was quite a difficult decision to make. Many said that he's too young. I guess we decided to send him because he is a lot "stable" than his age. He could speak.. not very fluently but he can at least tell you what he wants and oh.. did I mention? The teachers fell in love with him when I brought him there for a "trial".

My adorable little monster melts the heart of many but I have to warn you, looks can be VERY DECEIVING! The amount of stress that I have to go through and the amount of tolerance that I have to put in is just so.. so.. I seriously don't have a word to describe it. One moment, he can drive me up the wall with his demands, fightbacks and crocodile tears. Another moment, he can be an angel that would make me go.. "Awwww.. I have been blessed with the best."

Being a mum has made me a lot less patient but at the same time, I have to be patient! How does that work? Parents will understand what I mean and if you are going to be a parent, trust me.. you will know what I mean!

Well, he is still one of the best gift that I've received from God and here's to show you why..

 He gives you a fake smile when you ask him to smile for the camera...
(with Anthony Tan.)

 He sits on the walk way when he's tired from all the walking/running around like he's the boss!
(with Elisha Lim.)

 He talks to a cat.

 And lectured a puppy for not "playing" with him.
(in actual fact, he doesn't dare touch anything furry. He seems brave here cause the puppy didn't bother about him.)

 "I give Mummy a headache because.......

.....I stuck stickers all over the sofa!"



Many asked what it means. I've tried explaning but I can't. It's something that came up when my hubby and I were in courtship. It's stuck to me and I find it special.

I've been using it as my blog name and now I've expanded it to my baking "brand".

If you are wondering what Ciku may read more about it here.
