I made おにぎり when I was watching CSI last night. So all of us had おにぎり for breakfast today, and I have an extra one for my dinner :)
I pan friend it with sesame oil but hungry-after-jogging-girl just didn't have the patient to wait so my おにぎり turned out like that :P
I've been wanting to make onigiri since donkey years ago, I've even got the mold for the rice shape from Daiso... I think that was 2-3 years ago. But I've never got the correct rice, so I always make excuses.
Yee Hau had finally bought this Japanese short grain rice! I'm happy! I can't wait to cook now, even though I'm still full from my Starbucks breakfast platter :P
It's so simple to make your girlfriend happy, isn't it?
I almost had an heart attack when I read Ying Ying's email yesterday.
Her flight on 30th April morning was being retimed to 9pm on the same day. That is when, Yo-Yo Ma is playing cello in Esplanade!!!! OH MY GOSH!!
I believe she had an even worse heart attack when she was informed. And I know she will try all the means to get to Singapore before the concert. And finally she made it, and I can now smile with relief.
I didn't manage to get good seats for us as the tickets were sold to the members before opening to public on February.
But having a seat is always better than none. It's such a funny phenomenon that the newspapers is doing a write-up of Yo-Yo Ma interview for the upcoming concert, but tickets sold out! I'm glad I have 3 with me! :)
I am already dreaming... Maybe I get to ask autograph from Yo-Yo Ma?
我的晚餐，是两片面包。一片配Brown button mushrooms sauté with butter, garnished with dried parsley；另一片配荷包蛋，还是用牛油煎的，也是撒上了parsley。面包上，还涂了一层牛油！一个晚餐，都是牛油！不肥都假！
We went to kayak at Bedok Reservoir, it's really a good way to spend a weekend morning with a bunch of crazy friends. Bedok Reservoir was unfortunately having event, the area to kayak was pathetically small, but no problem, we always find ways to entertain ourselves. Throwing slippers around, robbing paddles, chasing etc.
I didn't have my camera with me, so I thought I could come back and take some shots that represent what I have done for the day.
Cameron Highlands is definitely proud of the strawberry, though it's not even sweet. Maybe it's plainly because it's the only place in Malaysia that is producing so much strawberries and contributing to it's tourism. I guess.
Strawberry farms are all over in Cameron Highlands. Souvenirs, in form of t-shirt, balloon, key chain, hair accessories etc. etc. are taking forms of strawberries... Don't they feel tired looking at them?
But still, as a typical tourist, I was still lured to this little dessert shop called Strawberry Moments in Brinchang. We had strawberry chocolate crepe. The food was just okay. The menu made me dizzy, because I kept seeing strawberry and not knowing what are the differences between the items :P
Visiting to strawberry farms are just one of the thing to do in Cameron, since, there's nothing much to do except for relaxing.
And I found a gigantic mutated strawberry!
One of the attractions that Cameron Highlands claimed to have, is bee farms. Lots and lots of bee farms....
I've learnt from Discovery channel, that bees are very important to the balance of our nature. Although I've learnt to appreciate the bugs and insects more after the show, but I still don't love them. Visiting bee farms can be a scary business for me...
But nonetheless, I still took some photos. The close up +4 filter that I bought last year, is the best investment I made for my camera last year. I can take close up photos of flowers and insects, without paying so much for a macro lens :)
On the day we reached Cameron Highlands, my plan was to go Boh Tea Plantation, and have a afternoon tea there. However, when we checked into Bala's Chalet, it started to rain.
We wandered around in Bala's Chalet until the rain stopped. By the time we reached junction to Boh Tea Plantation, I found out that it closes at 4.30pm.... It was already 3.40pm at that time. So we turned around, and went to Bharat Tea Plantation.
If you'd ask me, I still like Boh better. But, the weather was very good on the day I went to Bharat, hence, the photos were better :)
