Another class at JLSM

Today I taught Mochi, an Italian dish with fettucini and Green Tea jelly (Harumi's recipe - tweaked) at JLSM.

Store bought anko.

Plain white mochi.

Macha flavored mochi.
The students were very good at making mochi. There are plans to color them pink and give away for Chinese New Year! So cute!

The Italian dish. This was a hot favorite.

Forgot to take pictures of the delicious green tea jelly!

Bento 311

This was #3's lunch yesterday. Homemade burger patties.

Fresh meat patties frying on a pan.

I covered the pan with a lid and allow it to cooked over minimum fire.

Mini burger buns laden with sliced cheese.

Yummy, delicious and juicy burgers!

Three burgers and some bananas topped with cinnamon sugar.

Bento 310 and fresh meat patties

Everyday there's extra classes for #3 and I've decided to send her lunch. She's grown a whole lot over the last holidays and looks more 16 than 12!

Her appetite is revenous and a third of her school bag would be filled with food if I didn't send her lunch!

This was her lunch today...(clockwise from the bottom) fried rice with bacon bits and egg. Some chicken nuggets with cheddar cheese, a bowl of hot ABC soup, a quarter of an orange and some Japanese chocolates.

After much cajoling, I finally agreed to make some meat patties for burgers. #2 and #3 helped me make it in the middle of getting dinner ready tonight.

It was really quite easy with their help and we finished it in a zippy.

The ingredients were roughly the following:
1 kg minced beef
500g minced pork
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs
5tbsp of milk
1 white onion - chopped in bits
pepper and salt to taste
8 slices of bacon cut to bits and fried till a little crisp

Mix all the above well together and pack them in sizes which are suitable for your use.

The two girls had five burgers between them and it was "yummy"!

Goma Ice-cream

My mum decided to spend Chinese New Year in Penang at my sister's home this year. Before she left, we took her for dinner at Sushi Tei in Tropicana City Mall.

The food is pretty decent and the price is reasonable. I had this for dessert that night. It's black sesame ice cream with some anko and glutinous rice balls.

It was quite enjoyable!

More Books! Insanity is setting in...

My husband wanted to get something from One Utama last night but didn't because it was not available.

Instead, #2 and I had a blast of a time picking books to our hearts desires! I bumped into the Popular book store and found that they were relocating and books were going for a ridiculous 70% discount. Newly published books were available at 30% discount.

The prices were so ridiculous that #2 and I couldn't stop ourselves from picking and picking and picking books of our choice.

All these Japanese cooking books were bought at a fraction of their original prices!

Some books for #3.

General interests and specific needs.

#2's choice of books....I think these were 30% off.

More 70% less books!

These were a mix of 30% and 70% discounted books.

I couldn't help myself! I had to buy two of each because the price was just too good a steal to ignore! Perhaps I will plan to give them away or something via my blog. I need more time!!!

Bento 309 and Affogato

This was #3's bento for yesterday. Just fried sausages with wholemeal bread drizzled with some kewpie mayo and Oreo. #3 is really picky and hard to please.

Sometimes she can just eat the same food day after day. Admittedly, she's improved this year, trying new food stuff and acquiring new favorites. Problem is, it's at snail's pace and takes a toil on the patience!

This is our latest 'fix'! Affogato! After paying RM8.50-RM12.00 for this sweet taste of paradise, we decided to make it ourselves.

I used " coffee" with a plunger! Yummilicious!

Shopping at Daiso

#1 had some things to pick up at Daiso. As always, I'm excited too!

Picked up some carving tools. I know I won't be using them because I don't have the passion for Charaben. Just letting my blog readers know that it's available at Daiso at The Curve.

Have fun shopping!

#1's last two days at home before returning to the grind of self sufficiency! We're on a gastronomic tour of local food and favorite deserts!

I the "technologically challenged dork"

I've been without internet access for the last couple of weeks. Nonetheless, the world of 'possibilities' is quite large! Making good choices result in good returns.

Three months ago, the whole family invested in a Blackberry each because #1 was going off to UK to study. I'm technologically challenged so I just went with the flow. Three months later and quite a satisfactory owner of a Blackberry Bold with an unlimited access plan under my belt, I've found that I can still just plug in my Blackberry or BB in short to access the internet.

Hubs says that the Unifi plan is accessible to our area soon and we're going to subscribe to it. Beats me, but I'm fine with that!

The fact that I'm back blogging and having posted two posts already makes me happy!

Since #1 left for UK to study, nobody has been using the Canon EOS40D which hubs bought. I found it clumsy with the zoom lens and #1 suggested we invest in a smaller lens...okay I'm game for that too.

Hehehe! My new toy! (If I can figure out how to use it first).

Kids day out baking!

We started out early to the God sister's house for a day of fun and baking. Made some scones, Apple pies and Tiramisu. Days are packed with activities and programs until #1 flies back to UK for her second semester.

Pictures says them all....
