Baking Green Tea and Chocolate Snow Skin Mooncakes

The completed mooncakes from the top.
 Bryan's godma Eileen came over to try making mooncakes with Ade yesterday morning. It was both their first tries. I brought Bryan to take refuge at his grandparent's, so that the ladies could whip up their snow storm.

The results are as shown i.e. delicately printed powderd little medallions of creamy paste made of three different flavours:-
  • Snow Skin Green tea and mango paste
  • Snow Skin Chocolate almond nips lotus paste
  • Snow Skin Green tea almond nips lotus paste
Fit for royal consumption. Excuse me while i go sink my teeth into one of them, before the little prince ravages them all.

Rochester buffet breakfast play

It was a feat getting a nice big group out of their beds on early Sunday morning, as we all met at 7 Rochester for a morning toddler gathering. By 10am, all the individual families have arrived and were digging in the breakfast.

everyone was donned in red in the national day theme.

Behind the jar of apples lie the breakfast buffet counter, which laid out the food which could do with more improvement, like softer pancakes for example, and better hashbrown. However, the nice greenery and outdoor location made up for it slightly.

The playhouse was lovely. For a nominal fee, our feisty little children got their hands and bodies real busy in the clean and organized playroom, perfect for leaving mummy and daddy with a little solace for a greatly yearned together time without having to juggle a squirmy worm with breakfast sausages.

When time was up in the playroom (they charge by the half hour after the first hour), Bryan's expression above says it all on how much he wanted to get back inside.

Ketchup slurping monster

Bryan newly discovered the joy of dips. At mos burger Jurong point, everything edible went into the ketchup tray first, including his fingers. After a while, mummy realizes that he ain't eating the French fry at all, but the sauce dish was starting to empty out.

We tried giving him a piece of bread to distract him, but it turns out the bread was like a better sponge.
