With the baby starts settling into a routine, I am also starting to
get enough sleep lately – yups, no more brutal nights of waking up for
feed spurs and occasional cries.  There’re still a few hiccups here and
there that puts her off her routine, but nothing we can’t handle. So
these past few days, we’re sticking to the routines. And here I am
flooding my blog with new postings, cooking lunch/dinner or both,
taking photos again and actually getting out for some air and a bit of
shopping. Phew! I needed that…..

A few days ago I experimented with margarita in cupcakes, with
recipe that actually works from VCTOTW (*thank you*).  I love it –  a
note to myself to sneak in a few more shots of liquor next time.

This afternoon, I managed to whip up a different version of cuptail,
the one with Baileys around lunch time. Mind you my lunch was a bowl of
instant noodle cooked in a microwave. I fed myself in a run while
standing up in the kitchen, warming up baby’s milk, sifting flour and
trying to wake myself up with a cup of strong coffee. As far as I’m
concerned, my day hasn’t started until I have my cup of coffee. A
little bit fussy about the brand of coffee. I would be very happy with
Illy brand or Douwe Egbert – and both are unavailable here.
