7. Men are like Department Stores . Their clothes are always 1/2 off!
8. Men are like ......Government Bonds .... They take soooooooo long to mature.
9. Men are like .....Mascara . They usually run at the first sign of emotion.
10. Men are like Popcorn ..... They satisfy you, but only for a little while.

Bakerzin Northpoint

Had a dessert with Evangeline at Bakerzin Northpoint.. The first thing we ordered was Bailey’s Souffle.. Evangeline loved the Illy Coffee from Bakerzin and it went great with the soft Bailey’s souffle.. But I felt the interior of the souffle was a little too watery… Probably I don’t like thinks to be wet and dry at the same time? PC090660   PC090663 PC090664  PC090666 
We ordered the warm chocolate cake too.. It was really warm… The chocolate was good… I preferred this over the souffle.. :SPC090668

2am Dessert Bar

I went to 2 am Dessert Bar for the second time.. And I tried a different dessert this time round.. First was the chocolate tart with orange sorbet… I think the tart base was one of those ready made ones.. So I didn’t really like it.. But the sommelier introduced really good wine.. I really liked it… I like my sweet dessert wines…
The other dessert was Tiramisu with some coffee based ice cream… I think the shape of the ice cream is such a delight.. I’m so influenced by Evan… Lol… But the Tiramisu was quite authentic with its lump of mess there…

Brie Cheese was really good though… Brie is a soft cows’ cheese named after Brie,a province in France..
There is a layer of crusty white mould… Yes… mould…. It reminds me of the smell of ammonia from chemistry lessons back in school…
Adapted from Wikipedia:


Brie may be produced from whole or semi-skimmed milk. The curd is obtained by adding rennet to raw milk and heating it to a maximum temperature of 37 °C (98.6 °F). The cheese is then cast into molds, sometimes with a traditional perforated ladle called a "pelle à brie". The 20 cm mould is filled with several thin layers of cheese and drained for approximately 18 hours. The cheese is then taken out of the molds, salted, inoculated with cheese mould (Penicillium candidum orPenicillium camemberti) and/or Brevibacterium linens, and aged in a cellar for at least four to five weeks.
If left to mature for longer, typically several months to a year, the cheese becomes stronger in flavour and taste, the pâté drier and darker, and the rind also darker and crumbly, and is called Brie Noir (Fr: black Brie). Around the Île-de-France, where Brie is made, people enjoy soaking this in café au lait and eating it for breakfast.[1] Over-ripe Brie contains an unpleasant, excessive amount of ammonia, which is produced by the same microorganisms required for ripening.[2]

Charity Fashion Show

Kate offered me to help out with a charity fashion show.. I’m still horrible with my stage walks though.. Something about me.. I just couldn’t do my cat walks… I’m rigid, and the harder I try, the worse I get… No rhythm.. Its like I have two left feet…

Our make up artist for the show…. He got everyone in the show good looking… I like the pink velcro he used to hold our hair away from our face while he did the make up… :D

17 Nov 2009: Jasmine Mont Blanc

Following one of the Japanese Websites, I tried to make a Jasmine Mont Blanc..
PB170603   PB170606PB170602 PB170607 PB170608
The whole thing was very difficult… So I won’t write the recipe.. The Jasmine mont blanc cream was very tough because it melts very easily… But the best part was the lemon curd in below the d’amandes sponge in the tard.. It was lemony and fresh… Delish… :)

Rat Invasion

The renovation from the neighbours seems to have destroyed the homes of the rats living there… And one of these “ratatouille” seemed to have escaped into my kitchen!!! EEEEEEKKKSS!!!! Grandma caught the rat with a rat cage trap… And look at this creepy thingy!!!! :S
