another perfume

I got this one today called Drama Nuui.  It is from Parfumerie Generale.  Bitter jasminade with a fusion of absinthe highlights.  Allegory of dawn, o floral temptation of tragic fragility.  Sensual stickiness of wood infused with spices... A spell arousing a libertine musk.

Tea Time Treats

This is the perfect eclair!  The french style.  Inside is filled with chocolate mousse and outside is not just dark chocolate but a beautifully done glossy layer of glace only french chef can do.
Then also the Italian nougets, so nice and soft and full of nuts and fruits.  I love the tin with chocolate chips cookies inside.  The design of the tin is so pretty.

Vietnamese shrimp cake

This is the deep-fried shrimp cake I love.  Inside is filled with green beans and carrots.

new painting of wayang dancer

This is the character Jatayu.  I like the blue colour costume with Garuda symbol.
