where am I?

Mork says: Let me out. Help me someone please!!

Mork says: A little bit more and I am free. Why isn't anyone here yet. Where are you?

Mork says: At last I am free but where am I? I am lost.

eight ninjas want to have reunion meal too

Mork has been staying with me for exactly a year today.. I still remember clearly when I took him back from the Aquatic shop together with the late Mindy who has gone home to be with the Lord last year. Mork was still so tiny and small then. Cutie and adorable he was. Now he has grown much bigger but still consider not too big for his age. He is still cute and attracts my attention most of the time for his naughtiness as he sometimes acts like a big bully during feeding time. He is leader of the seven other ninjas.

Mork says: I am so clean and fresh again after a short bath under the running tap and now I am hungry. Where is my reunion meal?

The rest of the ninjas whispering to each other: Lets make loud noise by scratching at the wall of our home to get more attention.

The ninjas: Yes!! yes!! she heard us.. now we can have a good nice meal. Let's go see who is the fastest to get the food.

The eight ninjas (terappins) are enjoying their meal after fasting for three days.. I will feed them once in three days so that they do not grow too huge in size.

spring flowers need a shower too

It has been a year since I last washed the spring flower that I bought from Green Gallery. After I had my lunch I soaked them in the water and shower them with a big tub of water. Then I left them to dry on the tub before i create my own design flower arrangement. I am never good at flower arrangement but I tried to get the best design I can in simple spring flower arrangement for Chinese New Year (spring festival) that is just a day away.

this flower arrangement is design by: sapphire blu at

At last I finished cooking for the day. Here are two more dishes to share during Chinese New Year Eve:

Recipe: Stiryfry Cauliflower With Mix Vegetables

mince chicken breast meat
french beans
prawns (optional)
button mushroom
chopped garlic
oyster sauce

first of all cut all the needed ingredients and placed them in a bowl or on a plate so that it is more convenient to cook later on

pamper my stomach with thong yuen

I said a no no to myself when I woke up lazily this morning and wanted to go back to sleep again. Rushed myself to the shower room and had a splash on myself. I am no more sleepy but very fresh already instead. Today is just a day before Chinese New Year and it is known as a reunion day.. Everybody will be sitting together and have a meal together especially during night time for Reunion Dinner.

I had "thong yuen" for breakfast. In english it is called glunious rice ball with fillings inside. The chinese believe eating this dessert for this festival season is a reunion for the family. Normally it is eaten with ginger in plain sugar water.

Hoever, this morning I ate "Thong yuen" cooked in red bean soup in cantonese "dai hong dai zi' which means a bright future. Nowadays this type of dessert is simple to make by yourself as it is in many ready packages that are being sold in most supermarkets and hypermarkets. Have a good yummy breakfast and pampering your stomach with thong yuen will be a good idea too.
