    Christmas card 2023

    It’s that time of the year again. The terrible Photoshop card. And oh boy — did Ila grow this past year. As always, Tofu playing “bande apart” — hanging out by herself, minding her own business, and definitely staying away from Mumu and Taro. Them two boys, on the other hand, lovers as always. And…

  • Christmas card 2022

    I know we said that if we adopted a 3rd cat, we’d skip getting a kid. Oh well. This year Ila joined us and, as if all stars aligned, it was the perfect set to create baby Jesus’ birth. My grandma (bless her) would’ve been proud… 😉 The cats as the three kings, Joseph and…

  • Christmas card 2021

    Mumu (née Mullet) officially joined us in the 2021 card. While he was alive and well the year before — we hadn’t decided to adopt him yet — so not officially part of the family just yet. His mummy and 2 brothers got adopted shortly after Christmas, and we decided to keep him as a…

  • Christmas card 2020

    Right in the middle of Covid (linking to the Wikipedia article because 20 years from now this will be but a very distant reminder). With all the lockdowns and travel restrictions, all our travel plans in 2020 (and most of 2021) were cancelled (yes, I book flights sometimes a year in advance). Trips to Paris,…

  • Christmas card 2019

    This year, Taro joined us. Taro was an abandoned cat that we found the day before we moved out of our condo in Potong Pasir. To this day, Taro is the scared one, although he doesn’t shy away from bullying Tofu. After this, we figured two cats was enough.

  • Christmas card 2018

    As our family grew, we had to start including more into the card. This year, Tofu was introduced. Tofu was a 6-week-old kitten when we got her. She was likely abandoned by a breeder for her crooked tail. She lacks some social skills and has quite the temper. But nonetheless, she’s our Tofu.

  • Christmas card 2017

    Every year, we, Shan and I, send a Christmas card to people we care about (so yeah, sorry if you didn’t get one ;)). The idea is quite simple: bad photoshopping meets something relevant and/or funny. I just realised we never posted these online, and so maybe it’s time to create an archive. In the…

    Ikea Tradfri with Philips Hue

    Recently visited Ikea and had to get a Christmas star-light like I used to have during my childhood. Most of my (non-track) light at home is smart using either a TP-Link Kasa smartplug or Philips Hue (and I want to avoid adding more brands, more apps, and more shit). However, Philips Hue is quite $$$…
