iWant iPhone


This is what it looks like during the Lunar New Year.  These ladies sure need portable phone batteries for their gaming addiction!  But seriously speaking, the iPhone4 battery can last me two days on standby mode.  The super fast battery charging time is about 2 hours if I am not mistaken.  Recently I’ve installed Whatsapp.  They work like MSN.  You get to send text messages as long you have wi-fi connection.  Apps is not free but it is worth the $1.99 I am paying!  Nowadays, I don’t pay for SMS anymore.

iHave iPhone!

“iF you don’t have an iPhone… well, you don’t have an iPhone”

That quote is catchy right?  Apple recently release two campaign advertisement posted on Youtube. The starting of the ad goes with “If you don’t have an iPhone” and ends with “… well, you don’t have an iPhone”.  After watching the end of every video, I shouted (in my heart), “Yes! I have an iPhone!” *sticking out tongue*

Bento #102 – Udon & Tempura

Sometimes you must make your kids remember names of food they like.  For example, the ‘fat’ noodle is called Udon.  While the ‘thin’ one is soba.  After a few times of drilling, finally it stick to their brain.  Cleber girl!

This is the first time I bought pre-packed udon from the supermarket.  The verdict?  They are yummilicious!  The pre-pack noodle contained udon only.  What you see on the packaging is for illustration purpose.  See, they forgot to mentioned that on their packaging! :p

Just follow the cooking instruction at the back of the packaging.  They are ready to eat under 3 minutes.  I throw in some mushroom, scallop and artificial crab claw. And on the side dish, a udon is not complete without tempura. I don’t ask me if this is a rules but the Japs always serve udon with tempura. I just follow suit. *shrug*

From left to right:  Prawns, sweet potatoes and lotus roots.

With all the cooking and frying, I kinda cheat thru dessert.  They may look nice (and delicious!) and sophisticated, but to tell you the truth, it is yogurt layered with cut strawberries and some passion fruits.  They kids love them!  My daughter said that I am qualified to compete in “Top Chef”! LOL!  Quick, quick!  Where is my trophies then?

Bento #101 – Mr Piggy Bear?

Ever since we moved in to the new place,  I have this obsession of making pancakes for breakfast and goodness, the kids has never get bored with it. Yet!  Sometimes I would make a big batch of pancakes and frozen some for their next day lunch box.  To spice up our weekend morning, the Little Munchkin would request for a piggy pancake.

To make a piggy pancake you need 1 large circle for the face, 1 medium circle for the nose and one small circle to be cut into half for the ear.  Now the tricky part is the medium circle.  If you make it slightly bigger, they will look like a bear after assemble.  That is how the supposedly piggy pancake now looks like a bear.  It is important to get a right size for the nose.  Lots of trial and error but they are still edible none the less.

Dog and Water Fight

Belle, our 10 months old pet dog love chasing after golf ball and she heart them so much!  So much that when she wants to bite something, she tend to forget that the golf ball is still in her mouth.   And her biggest enemy is the water.  Whenever we water the garden, she will come charging at the water and tried to bite it (with the golf ball still in her mouth!) LOL!  Good thing is she won’t chew our  designer upholstery fabric sofa.

There is one thing that I don’t understand about Belle.  She loves to jump on us.  I was told that Belle spent too much time in her cage and is lack of obedience.  Hence the moment we let her roam, she tend to jump on us.  *shrug*

But generally, cocker spaniel is regarded to be more active.  No?

Bento #100 – All Things Sweet

Left to right: Marshmallows, grapes, cold cut ham and cookies

Wow, this is my #100 posts on Bento!  As you can see, most of the Bento posted here is for my two older children age 9 and 11 years old.  I do make bento lunches for the Little Munchkin who is 6 but usually they are not in the presentable form to be photograph and blog!  The Little Munchkin is very fussy when come to food.  She eats very limited type of food and dislike greens.  For me, bento without green is very difficult to assemble!  It can be done, but like I’ve just said, they are not so presentable.  Somehow with the type of food available in my fridge, I managed to come out something nice for her this time.

Baby Alive

While loitering around the airport during our recent holiday trip to Bali (will blog later) Minka Aire, we was fascinated by this new toy called “Baby Alive”.  They are made to react to touches, call out for attention and is able to drink and wet! After months of pestering by the Little Munchkin, finally Daddy bought one that says:  “I Drink and Wet”.

The set came with a toothbrush, toothpaste, biscuit, a real drinking bottle(!!!) and a real disposable diaper (!!!).  This is where the fun is.  Just simply fill bottle with juices, milk or any liquid.  Feed the bottle to the doll.  You will be surprised to see that the tongue actually retract and liquid goes in through the mouth and out it goes to the diaper.

As we did not have a spare diaper, I refrained the Little Munchkin to feed the doll any liquid.  Maybe will tailor made a cloth nappy.  That way, we can wash and reuse. Another way to save the diaper is to removed the diaper and sat the doll in the basin.  But I won’t encourage anything like that.  You know, it is not very appropriate to feed a baby naked while sitting in the basin. We don’t do that in real life, so we better not do that even if they are unreal.  Kids tend to pick up thing very fast.

The only thing the doll doesn’t do is poo and making sound.  Well, if you want ‘her’ to poo, try feeding ‘her’ some yellowish liquid.  That is the closest to poo colour *wink*.  There are a few version of Baby Alive in the market.  Little Munchkin preferred the one that “bounces and babbles”.  When we first saw it, the doll was bouncing in her crib and making gurgling baby noises.  Daddy made a bad choice this time or else we would have request him to get one that is more interesting. Lesson to learn – kids doesn’t like anything quiet.

The Little Munchkin actually commented:  “Mummy, the YouTube bluff people wan.  How come my Baby Alive can’t talk.” Call this a technology advancement or what?
