Simple chocolate cupcakes


Just now my daughter requested me to make cupcakes for her to bring to orphanage house tomorrow. Her school teacher will bring them there. I have been thinking to make cupcakes for large amount because I want to try the 24-holes muffin pan that I bought from Melbourne’s trip. I was so happy to accept this order ^_^

Bamboo forest of Sagano 嵯峨野竹林, Kyoto Japan



Bamboo forest of Sagano 嵯峨野竹林 is one of the place that i like the most when visited Kyoto..remind me of the fight scene of the movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (卧虎藏龙)..The atmosphere there is so calm and peaceful..

Stir-fried Squids with Pineapple


Just came back from a short trip from Melaka. Once returned home, start to busy purchasing, packing and making delivery for My Kedai Runcit orders (Hokkaido cupcake case, Puteri ayu mould and skewer are selling hot!!)...just realized that quite a lot of works just to manage this small kedai runcit, hehehe...but it is a good experience and exposure to business world..
I cooked this stir-fried squid with pineapples few weeks ago. I have almost forgotten this dish which my mom use to cook for us when we were kids..if you like sweet and sour dish, you will love this..The important tip is do not overcooked the squids otherwise it will turn chewy and hard..
