Living In Twilight

That is exactly how I am feeling right now.

The days seems to pass by in a haze with only my To-Do lists keeping me in focus.

I'll be back here when I can find a path beneath my feet again.

But let me leave you something interesting to look into. I chanced upon an article writing about Raffles Culinary Academy, unfortunately I can't save myself with my Chinese so I didn't bother to attempt deciphering what the article was about. Happy clicking.

Lunch Hour, Rush Hour

Since our little princess start school in Sep-07, I have been faced with lunch hour challenge every weekday. Our attempts to get her to eat lunch in school hasn't gone very well, but I am not giving up just yet. We are now working on getting her to go school on time and the lunchbox can come back later.

Having lunch at home is nice but the preparations never fail to stress me out. While most working parents ask "What's for dinner?", I can be heard asking "What's for lunch AND dinner?". Okay, I shall stop whinning here.

Yesterday, while walking aimlessly around my supermarket with little princess, I chance upon the deli section selling prepared salads. Thai shrimp salad, quinoa salad, couscous salad, pasta salad and potato salad just to name a few. So instead of yielding to cries for a burger, I managed to convince her to try the pasta salad. It cost me S$2.70 for 100gm. Pricey? No doubt, but at least she is eating natural food rather than processed burger…

Do You Twitter?

I don't.

And I haven't the faintest idea why people do so until I read this article from WSJ. And after I was done with the article, I haven't the faintest idea why would anyone wants to follow minute by minute what happens in another person's life? Check out the link provided in the article and try it for yourself.

Let me know your thoughts. Am I resisting technological advancement? Is blogging now third world?

Little Green Shop

Are you someone who remember a restaurant for the food rather than its name? I didn't think I belong to this category until we went Vivocity this afternoon for lunch.

It had somehow become a routine for my little princess to have her ice cream treat whenever we lunch there with my mother-in-law. She would finish whatever that we put in her bowl and in turn hurry us to finish ours. Then off she goes, skipping and hopping to the "Little Green Shop" to start her selection of ice cream. Their ice cream selection is pretty decent and it is not tooth-achingly sweet. Earl Grey chocolate ice cream, hazelnut ice cream and plain vanilla are my little princess' favourites.

Today, when she happily skipped ahead of us to the "Little Green Shop", she was greeted with a closed shop. The glass panels were shut tightly and she announced to us disappointingly: "It is closed!" We peek inside and saw that the place has been gutted. The "Little Green Shop" is …

Links From All Over

There is a book on bento boxes coming out on 14 Mar 09. Here is a link to Amazon. I wonder how different it would be from those bento books printed in Japanese.

Here's another interesting link on how to make Beef Stew. Their version is slightly different from mine, but it gives a good idea on how process.

Then there is this article on NYTimes about how food magazines are targeting the cost conscious market these days by giving advice on how to cook on a budget. Sadly, what is lacking in this part of the world is the lack of interest in cooking for most families here. Guess it is still hard to beat a S$2 chicken rice from ANY stall at anytime.
