fruity break

Butter bun, watermelon and lychee juice (from Mogu Mogu).

Mogu Mogu bottled juice came in few different flavours, each with lots of chewy nata de coco. Lychee flavour is my favourite!

late break

There was once when i was addicted to this kind of chocolate roll. i had to have one almost every afternoon which lasted for about two months. Scary!

toast love

The most common food i had when i was staying in London was bread. It’s the most affordable for me then and of course i wasn’t much of a cook either. Also, i hated using the shared kitchen as it was always dirty and i HATE doing dishes. Anyway, besides instant noodle, i can cooked only a few simple dishes like: 

Chicken Rice (not the authentic kind)
Add marinated chicken and vegetable (chinese cabbage, carrot and button mushroom) with rice into the rice cooker and simmer together. That’s it, DONE! This has become my signature dish, and it’s OOOH-SO-YUMMY! i made this for my family years later and they love it. 

Vermicelli Soup 
Basically everything is the same as cooking chicken rice except to replace rice with vermicelli and add lots of water.

Spaghetti with Grilled Chicken Wings
Marinate and grill chicken wings for about 20mins. While waiting, boil spaghetti and heat some bottled ready-made sauce from supermarket, add some button mushroom, stir in the cooked spaghetti. And TADAH! Both will be done and ready to eat at around the same time.

Back to bread.

Raisin toast with butter.

i didn’t get tired of eating bread like most of my fellow asian friends. Instead, i grew to love it. i made all kinds of sandwiches for my meals:

The common ones
Ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce

The lazy ones
Peanut butter, strawberry jam, nutella, butter, canned soup

The fusion ones 
Luncheon meat, vegetarian pork floss with lettuce, bakkwa with lettuce. Sounds weird but they are really yummy.

choice of

For me.

For everyone else.

Today, (besides eating) i’ve also updated my full set of stationery design, including the blog’s maskhead, to go with my new namecards.

healthy vs sinful

i had both because it’s impossible to resist either. Oooh so yummy!

Zespri Golden kiwi vs Minamoto Kitchoan chocolate mochi

Golden kiwi is still in season, so get them quick before it’s over! The next seasonal fruit to look forward to will be white cherries, i think it’s in August, very soon :-)
