An early Xmas & birthday gift...

I took part in a facebook contest organized by 'Sugar Inc' recently. The criteria is to upload a photo of something that we baked or decorated using their recipes on our own at home. The photo with the most number of 'likes', wins a 2-tier cake stand worth $52.90!

Many thanks to my friends who supported me. I am proud to announce that I am the owner of this beautiful cake stand now! *3 cheers*

I am going to bake some goodies soon & serve them using this sweet little cake stand for my afternoon tea. Stay tuned for more updates.. *^_^*

I'm addicted to creamy scones


Call me 'mountain tortoise' if you want. Why? The truth is... I had never eaten scones before! I finally pluck up my courage & tried baking scones after reading Bakertan's blog. I totally agreed with him that these scones were so good that I could eat them on their own without any jam or butter. I baked my scones slightly longer in the oven as I love them to be crispy on the outside.

The scones are simply delicious. Soft & moist inside with a sweet & buttery taste. I guess I am addicted to eating scones now...

We love Jap food


I had Japanese lunch buffet at Zen restaurant with my hubby today. I was so looking forward to it & even told my hubby that we need to have some 'strategy' when eating buffet..... which is to take only sips of tea in between the dishes. Why? This is because I realized most buffet serve food which were slightly salty & we had to keep hydrate ourselves. I wonder is that their real motive so that we will drink more water & eat lesser food? Hahaha ;P

Take a look at their menu. It is a bit 'compressed' as they squeeze all the pictures into two pages.
Chawanmushi - with prawn & mushroom inside, excellent eaten with a dash of chili powder
Salmon Sashimi - thickly sliced & fresh
Sirloin steak - Juicy & tender, makes chewing minimal
Tenderloin beef cube steak - Very Juicy & tender, good combination with the sweet sauce.
Ebi, Yasai & Kisu tempura - Deep fried to a nice crunch
Salmon aburi sushi - Our favourite! It 'melted' in our mouth
Kani cream croquette & Kaki fry - Very fresh oysters while croquette is too soft
Curry chahan - Very fragrant curry fried rice with big scallops & crunchy fried prawns
Beef shabu shabu - Looks are deceiving. Beef were too thickly sliced
Agedashi tofu - All time favourites
Cold Chasoba - Refreshing after eating so much meat stuffs, I love it
Age Gyoza - Nothing special, almost the same when compared to sakae's Gyoza
Yakitori , Enoki Gyu maki - Chicken is slightly dry while the beef mushroom roll tastes great
Kabocha pumpkin - If you love cheesy stuffs, you will definitely love this dish
Coconut cream brulee -Excellent with a strong coconut taste. Smooth, soft & melts in your mouth
Cheesecake - light & refreshing

Overall, we had a gd lunch in this quiet & cozy restaurant. If you want to try their food, this is their location:
