Rocking a studded tee

Ok, first off let me tell you that this post is an overload of photos! Today is my dad's birthday and I had in mind to bake him a cake so after class I asked Mr. Penguin to come buy the ingredients with me. We brought the camera and took pictures on the way to the grocery store. On the way, we passed by this area behind the building where I live that I've always wanted to take pictures at but never had the chance to since it was a private property. Inside the area, there is something like a greenhouse or whatever you call a place that grows herbs and flowers and well, plants i guess. The back is an open space with lots of greenery and rusty metals lying about. Its a lovely place to take pictures. We were supposed to snap shots outside of the property but then I saw that the lock on the gate was unlatched. I looked  at Mr. P in a you-know-what-I'm-thinking way. Of course we went inside, sort of trespassing and shot inside. We made it quick before anyone came to shoo us off. But despite us being in a rush, we were able to take lots of photos that I had a hard time choosing which to post... (read more after the jump)

Anyway, went off to the grocery and got the stuff I needed. Yesterday, I helped Penguin baked a cake for his mum too because its her birthday today as well. Yep, my dad and his mum were born on the same day. Coincidence much?

This is how the cake turned out. And now I'll stop typing cos this post has become longer than planned. Until my next!!

Cheers, Carla
