One very early morning, can’t remember if it rains the night before, the garden smells so fresh from the morning dew.
They say early bird catch the early worms. Even the ants was seen collecting the pollen. (Huh? You mean ants eat pollen too? Aiyah, nevermind.)
Ah then…. don’t know what to crap now.
You know, in certain country for example Harbin, during their freezing winter season when the temperature drop below 40C, what greeted you in the morning is not dew. Everything was frozen up.

Isn’t this a beautiful sight? One day I will make sure I have this picture taken by yours truly punya Canon 400D. You just watch this space la. Dunno when is the day. haha!
I’ve know some petite size man who is dying to build that muscle and six pack on their body. No matter how much they spent in the gym, nothing help as most of the time, Asian man are born to have smaller build. Supposedly adding Prohormones, a legal steroids to your daily diet on top of all the work out would enhance muscle growth even faster.
If you think the checkered apple is tedious, you should try making this sunflower sausage (just simply name them. ). This is how you do it:
Step one is like this…
The pressure you put on the knife while cutting has to be even. If not, you will get this result:
Can you imagine how frustrated I am when out of 12 pcs of frankfurt only one is perfect? The rest kept on breaking when I curl them. Step 2 should look like this:
Fasten both end with toothpick.
Step 3 – Heat a little olive oil in frying pan. Brown one side of the sausage, flip them over and break a quail egg on the centre. Reduce flame if you want a well-done egg. The finishing product looks like this:
Using a fork (in my case, I used my hand!), remove gently the excessed egg at the surrounding.
The Princess bento. I filled up the empty space with a cup of cornflakes.
This is how I shaped the rice.
Sprinkle a little furikake on the top or dab all over the rice.
The Prince bento looks like this (without the cornflakes as everything fit in nicely):
The sunflower sausage is a bit cacat because it is faulty. On the right is sun-dried pineapple. They are very delicious! Wuching courier them to me all the way from Melbourne.
Itu je. Too lazy to have lengthy post today. Maybe I will experiment with Weiner the next time. The frankfurter seems to be a bit soft and too fragile.
Every year during the PC Fair event, I will not miss the chances to attend the fair. At times when I have nothing to buy, I will still ended grabbing something during the fair. Most of the items like blank CDs or DVDs are sold at rock bottom price. The most exciting part would be hopping from booth to booth to get some free promotional items.
When I was holidaying in Port Dickson, I notice the hotel maintained their outdoor furniture very well like the patio furniture. Some hotel I went to are using the plastic furniture to cut down cost of maintaining the lifespan of wooden furniture from rain, especially. In Port Dickson, they uses patio furniture covers to protect their furniture at night that helps a lot to keep the furniture from the night dews.
This is how I carved the checkered apple.
Cut your apple into quarter or any bite size that you prefer. Core them too. In a bowl, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt into cold water. For my case, I’d prefer to used ice-cubes as I like my apple really chilled. Place apple into salt water.
Using a carving or any knife that you are most comfortable with, lightly cut criss-cross line on the apple’s skin.
This is the most tedious part. Skin the apple’s skin using the knife’s tip. Working alternately around the apple to form a chess board.
Once you have finished, return the apple to the salt water. Start working on the next piece by repeating step 1 to step 4.
Some curious readers is worried that the apple might turn brown. To kill the curiosity, I did an experiment by leaving the apple in a bento box outside room temperature for 24 hours. Want to know the result? Experimented them yourself
What is the things that you would not wish to see on your face a day before your wedding photoshoot? Pimples!!!
Usually there is no immediate solution to it but to let them matured slowly by itself. I would recommend the application of blemish acne cream for faster result and drink more water and also eat less oily food. Another easier way to diminished the pimple is by photoshopping your pictures. Hehehe..
We are a simple family that doesn’t live in a household with latest gadget. While most people had upgraded from DVD to Bluray, we are still using the VCD player. Where majority had a home theater system, we are still using the surround sound from the mini combo. But life still goes on as the one hogging the television is the kids and not the adult!
For us, our Saturday is usually spent lazying in bed till late morning where we only managed to catch our brunch at 11.00am. Last Saturday being a schooling days for most schools to replace the upcoming Hari Raya break, I prepared hot porridge for daughter’s bento – something that I don’t get to prepare for her on a weekdays.
We have here ABC dry scallops porridge which consist of diced carrot, potatoes, onion, dry scallops and some fish balls. I season them with concentrated chicken stock and written here on the labels is a bold “NO MSG”. How true can that be? For dessert, we have red dragon fruits and checkered apple.
We manged to fit everything nicely into a insulation bag. I was moved when Daughter blurted this, “Mummy, you don’t go to work so that I have hot and nice lunch to bring to school.” I also wish lor.
According to Daughter, she took a longer time to finish the porridge as it is still hot (but not piping hot). The poor girl only managed to finish half of her apple as the “Prefect-Has-Blew-The-Whistle” and “We-Must-Stop-Eating”. *sigh… Talking about which, I have prepared a tutorial on how to craft the checkered apple. Stay tune for my next post.
Previously I used to have a bad walking posture like hunching my back and my back would hurt after walking for a long period. MBT shoes solve my backache problem after my first encounter wearing one two years ago. MBT shoes is not a normal shoe. The sole of the shoe is like a moon shape and not flat. They are also known as the physiological footwear.
