About me

* I now have an 'about' button so I created this 'about' page. Sorry it's come 4 years late, but I figure it's better late than never.

Hi I'm Trish, but I'm more affectionately known as Trishie.
I was born and bred in Singapore but have been calling Sydney home since 2000. Prior to moving to Sydney, I was completely useless when it came to domestic chores. When I realised this was nothing to be proud of, I taught myself everything I needed to know about household affairs. I am now very fond of home life and list as my passions, cooking, baking and crafting.

I started this blog as a way of documenting the things I love. I love travelling. I also enjoy a spot of thrifting. I collect vintage plates and crystal glassware. I'm very fond of dresses. I like to sit out in the sun. I enjoy time spent with my friends. I love movies that make me laugh or cry. I love watching the change of seasons. I adore flowers - if I had a fairy godmother, I'd ask for fresh flowers everyday.

On 11.11.11, I married my best friend Stu. It was the happiest day of my life.
In April 2012, Stu and I welcomed to our little family, a mini long-hair dachshund. We named her Frankie (short for Frankfurter) and we love her to bits.
In September 2013, our first born child, Alexander arrived and I experienced first hand the best kind of love in life.
Thanks for visiting. It's lovely to meet you! x Trishie

I'm very glad to know you much much better now =) You reminded me of an ex-colleague with the name of Amanda. She's pretty like you and very feminine too =)
You not too good with household chores previously? I AM still!! LOL! I don't think I'll ever have any interest in cooking but I'm great in doing dishes! So my bf cook and I'll wash up =)
