Orange Skies & Lavender Swirls

It was another quiet evening at home, which couldn’t have been any more ordinary if this didn’t happen.

I have never seen Singapore’s skies so vividly painted with colour before!!!


It was BEAUTIFUL.

The intensity of the bright orange was crazy. I only upped the contrast in this picture a little bit, but it looked almost 100% like this in real life!!!!!! You shoulda seen it!

(or maybe you did, if you live in Singapore and looked at the sky the same time I did)

That moment when I suddenly decided to stop browsing twitter and look straight out of my window… I saw this. I think my heart kinda skipped a little beat when I was greeted by this unexpected view.

Needless to say, I immediately snapped these pictures and tweeted about it!!

“Omg SG people, look out at the sky now!!! IT’S SO ORANGE I’ve never seen the sky tinted so orangey before wtf?? Why like that?”

Lolol I sound so bimbotic in my tweet. Like “OMFG it’s a sunset and it’s orange oh wowww cool.”

But in all seriousness, I have never seen sunsets look like this in Singapore. When it turns to dusk, the whole sky slowly dims away into a blue-ish grey sort of tone. Super boring, no psychedelic colours to marvel at.

The bright orange soon faded into this purplish blueish hue… ♥ ♥ ♥ I love.

I still can’t believe I captured these gorgeous pics from my bedroom window. You’d think I would have to be located at the beach side or something to get this view. I just stared at the sky for almost 10 minutes before it all completely disappeared and darkness fell.

Dude, I came across this picture of me taken some time ago, back when I still had light orangey long hair and I just realized HOW MUCH I MISS MY LONG HAIR!!!!

I knew this was going to happen. I’d love short hair for awhile, then suddenly go back to missing it heaps again. I think it happens to every single girl. You’re either hopelessly obsessed with keeping your hair long, or you like to have it short, then long, then short again like me. Indecisive much?

Dunno why I thought my hair colour was so awful last time. I actually think it’s nice now!!! I might go rebond my hair to get rid of old-perm-frizz, and then dye it a light shade like this.

Milly’s, here I come!!!

So what have I been busy with recently?

Busy handling all the stuff for Shiberty’s Sweets of course!

Here are a couple of my recent orders that Sam and I have created together, for your viewing pleasure. (and for the lucky ones, for your nomming pleasure too! yay!)

A batch of brightly colored flowers made for a girl who’s been feeling down recently due to relationship problems..

Her lovely friend ordered these cupcakes to cheer her up ♥ Isn’t that sweet??

My customer (omg feels so weird saying that) simply said, “6 brightly colored flowers to make my friend happy, I’ll leave the details / designs up to you” and that made me all excited because I love it when people give me room for my own creativity and trust my skills / taste to come up with something good!!!

You can read about her awesome blog entry RAVING of Shiberty’s Sweets here!!!

I was grinning like crazyyyy when I read it… Thank you so much for the amazing response and feedback!! ♥

This is why I do what I do, to bake pretty treats for people who’d really appreciate it.

It was my first time attempting the purple flower, so it was kinda messy.. but I’m hoping to improve tremendously with my future flowers :)

Elephant cupcake!!!

LOL we got our first animal-themed cupcakes order. And I personally think these turned out faboo. -nods-

Happy elephants and tigers sitting in a box!!!

Sam made the tigers all by himself.. What an old looking tiger :P

Just something about tigers look very experienced and old… who’s with me?


Oink oink.

ROAR!!!!! Pigs and lions!!!

CUTE ANOT!!! Yes yes, squeal some more plz!

I would offer you some but they were already gobbled down by people.

In fact, if you haven’t already seen this picture in the review I linked above, you HAVE to look at this pic of a bunch of friends happily posing with ma cupcakes!!!! It is such the cutest picture ever.

Aren’t they adorable? ♥

These following cupcakes were made for another blogger!

Can you guess who? :)

First time trying out fondant cupcakes too. Gotta love the pastel colours!

Sorry for the poor lighting, pic was taken at night without flash because fondant doesn’t look that great with bright flash.

I nickname these following chocolate cupcakes… “Lavender Swirls”

Am I imaginative / artsy enough?

Tumblr worthiness, anyone?

Someone suggested to create a Tumblr blog for my cupcakes because Tumblr girls LOVE to reblog these sort of pretty pics and I think I should but that’d be one more website for me to keep up with wtf. I am already super busy these days!!

Hopefully I’ll find the time to do it really soon.
