Just watched Julie & Julia on DVD last night while TheOtherHalf was out with his workmates.

No surprises that I absolutely adore the movie! Love the storyline, Meryl Streep's portrayal of Julia Child, the determination of Julie Powell, lovely French-y music (my soft spot), the lurve, and the supportive loving husbands of both women.

Yes, it is total chick-flick.

Towdaaallly love it!

Plus, how can you not love a movie with food? I'm Asian after all. Food is our life and you can spot us from far because we will be the one taking photos of food at a food establishment or anywhere that food is available.


Kinda inspired by the movie, I would like to one day go through all the recipes in my collection of cookbooks.

One thing I would utterly love to do, and have been thinking like forever about it, is to prepare an English Afternoon Tea, with scones, cakes, biscuits, and sandwiches.

Actually I could do it this afternoon since it is such a horrible day out there: wintery showers, rain, sleet and snow. And TheOtherHalf is in bed nursing his hangover.

But then, he would not have an appetite to eat all those food. And it is one reason I don't cook/bake as much as I would love to because there is only so much one or two of us can eat.

So I will be contented to make my first batch of scones later this afternoon: plain and cheese scones.

Watch this space!
