Long Weekend Again!!

Last week was a long weekend for all of us, New Year plus Hari Raya Haji.
So we had more time to spend with our kid.....
Last weekend, we brought our son to Bishan Park for a walk at 4pm as the weather was quite good. My boy was so happy and excited!
He wanted to pick up the leaves on the ground, he wanted to play with the dogs, he wanted to come down to kick soccer with the boys...... so active!!
In fact, he was very sleepy coz has not been sleeping after he woke up from his 10am nap. He just could not bear to blink his eyes.....

As we need to clear our leave by 31 March, so i will be taking 2 days leave on the coming Mon and Tue to spend time with my boy.
So i am having another LONG WEEKEND this week!!! Hurray!!!

Will be back on Wed......
Meanwhile, if you have any questions on our recipes, please leave a note in your comments and Auntie Irene or i will reply lah.....

Seeya!!!

Hi fenying

Regarding the stain dress, last time i have tried this method n it worked. Maybe can try. Go to the supermarket like NTUC to buy a product call "COLOR RUN" (i think they have for color clothes n whites one). Just follow the instructions on the package. That product is a bit costly though but for a $180 dress, i think it's worth trying. Another way also can try, go buy the beach for color clothes n soak the dress in it for a day. I think it may remove the stain color n keeps the original color.

April, 腐竹 must pre-soak first. Must buy that type which is thinner type n not that type which crumble up one. N must cook the 薏米,腐竹 first then add the 白果 when the 薏米 is well cooked.

Violet, I had tried baking the muffin with my daughter on Sat and the taste turn out to be good. But I have 1 question is that some of the shape of the muffin turn out well especially those that I place at the corner of the tray but the ones that were placed in the centre of the tray, turns out to a very funny shape. Why is that so?

Cheers

Hi Fengying

Do you have any recipe for pineapple tarts as new year is coming and I hope to learn how to bake as my family loves it very much.

Dear Violet,

I wanted to try baking the fruit cake but I do not have brandy, can I replace it with other liquor or what can I put in to replace it?

Hope to hear your voice today.

Cheers

Hi fenying, regarding the hp drop in water, it really depends on the types of hp. My daughter used to have a very old model of SE, she dropped in the toilet bowl in her school and surprisely we left the phone off for a few days, on it and back to working condition.

I have another incident where my 3 days old hp was in my jean's pocket and my maid washed the jeans and the hp together !! Partly my fault too lor, I did not take out the hp. :-(

oh forget to put my name (hp drop in toilet bowl). I am cheesecake :-)

Hi Kaypoh listener,
粉樱说她看到你的留言, 知道你一些平时不下厨的朋友, 也开始做起糕点来, 令她又是感动! 又是安慰! 这单元能引起共鸣, 是她最大的收获. 就是听众给她最珍贵的礼物.
Hello Anonymous,
如果你要bake strawberry muffin,你可以用chocolate muffin的配方,不要用cocoa powder,把plain flour 加到300g,你可以买strawberry pie filling,
方法
1.先放一些蛋糊在muffin杯里
2.加入1/2tbsp.的filling
3.再加入蛋糊盖住filling
当你烘好时有些strawberry会流出来,好漂亮哦!不喜欢filling太甜,可加一点柠檬汁.

Hi Irene n Fenying
You 2 sure make my day beautiful by mentioning about me.谢谢!
For saving the file in the computer, here are the steps:
1) Double click on the name of the recipe
2) Use the mouse to drag n highlight the recipe portion only
3) Then right click the mouse n click copy
4) Open your Mircro soft words or power point program
5) Right click mouse again n click paste to paste recipe in the program
6) Now u can click save in the computer by selecting "save as"
Hope this helps anonymous Jan 12 8:59:19 am

Dear Violet

I have a 5 yr old girl and she is the only child in this family. When she plays with her toys, she will be talking to the toys. At first we just ignore, but recently I found out that she like to talk to herself when she sit in the car or she walk in the street. Is she normal? Pls help. TQ

hi violet,
i have a boy 16 mth old. he eats a lot but is skinny, not much flesh, you can touch and feel his bones.


i bought him to pediatriation, they say maybe he may be active.
But my mother and other old folks said that he has a disease called "monkey sickness". A kind of sickness that no matter how much my boy eat, he will not gain weight cos' the monkey is eating everything i give him. And also if i do not cure it as soon as possible, he will grow up with lower mentality as time passes by. It sound stupid, but i seem quite true as they said anyone got this kind of sickness the buttock have not much flesh (Sharp in shape) and the stomach is round. I check my son and found it the same as what the old folks said.

I tried shower him with the "leaves" my mum said, eat whatever they say it will curse my son condition, but still in vain.

I'm very tired and stress. i really don;t know wat to do now.

please help me ask is there really such a sickness or not such thing at all? i try not to believe but my son really have all the syptom like what my mum have mentioned.

please help asap.

thanks very much
desperate mum
