The reason why this blog is created is because Multiply.com is shutting down & all posts will be removed. Some posts here are back-dated from Aug 2004 - Aug 2012! I'm just doing a screen-shot & re-posting slowly cos it ain't easy to import every single photo. Therefore, only thumbnails are available for viewing, which also explains the white background & the little note at the end.

ABC Cooking Studio - Bread making

ABC Cooking Studio, Japan's popular cooking studio. Aunty Lily went for a trial bread making session and joined as member. She then brought us for trial break making session.  
Apart from the baking tablesThere is also a waiting corner where members can sit back, relax and enjoy the bread/cooking they just did. Or relax while waiting for the bread/ cake to be ready. Lockers are also available for members to keep their bag, but the locker is quite small, so if you're going, don't bring big bagLessons here are done in small groups (1 - 4 participants) so that everyone in the group is able to raise any questions as & when they need. As there are 6 of us, 4 of us (Aunty Alice, cousin Trixie & Cherilyn & myself) took the bread making while auny Lucy & Lily went for Hamburg Steak.Recipe is for all participant to bring home for practiceA wefie while waiting for their food to be cooked, and while we'r waiting for our bread to be proofed. Aunty Lily with her cook of the dayHamburg steak with Japanese rice & Onion SoupOnion Soup taste very normal. No wow factorHamburg steak is good. I never like onion, but the carmalized onion doesn't have the onion taste & the brown sauce is very delishInner of the hamburg steak.Meanwhile, here's from our table for bread makingIngredients are already measured & prepared by instructorsHaha.... wefies after wefies ... lolHands are dirty from the process, so didn't manage to pictures. Also, the instructor that teaches aunty Lucy & Lily was quite hostile and told us not to take pictures. But our instructor told us to feel free in taking pictures when we asked if we can take pictires. The trial class for bread making calls for Cinnamon Raisin Roll & Ham Mayonnaise Roll.The "before baking" look of our breadAnd there goes our babies into the ovenThe "after baking" lookAgain, pictures time.. lolSelfie with bread =DWe were famished after the class, so we went Lucky Chicken Rice at Lucky Plaza for late lunchTrixie just got her bonus, so treated us lunch=)We had an enjoyable bread making session & lunch. Thanks aunty Lily for bringing us =)

Durian Hunt | Sindy Durian

Met up with Anthony & his wife for Durian Fest 2015 at Bugis Street. It was stated $20 for durian buffet with t&c but... ... t&c wasn't stated on the pamphlet. Thus, we decided to take a look 
There was a "stall" right at the beginning of the event and it's $20 for take away. A big plastic bag is provided to you and you can take whatever quantity you want, as long as it fits into the plastic bag. However, you have to choose the durians on your own & seller will not help u to openAh.. the place where you choose the durians for the eat-in durian buffetBut no.... that's not the start of queueThis is the start of queue for the durian buffet. The $20 buffet doesn't includes Mao Shan Wang & other premium durians. For premium durians, it's $45!The queue went all the way to the end of Bugis Street & even longer. Thus, we decided to not join the queue and go somewhere else for duriansAnthony's friend recommended Sindy Durian at WhampoaWe were lucky enough to be last in the queue cos those who came after us are stopped from queuing as there are no more durians. Whatever durians here are mostly reserved. We queued for close to an hour just to get hold of 4 durians. The queue took quite a while cos the owner "QC" each & every durian before letting u decide if you wanna buy. Those of lower quality will be put aside & return back to supplier. Very good qualityWahaha... even the thin side had mini flesh tooThe aftermath of it from me alone =)
Durians here are of very good quality and worth the wait. But do note that as quantity is limited, it's best to call & reserve to avoid disappointment. Also, they are not open during off-peak season.
