In preparation for Pancake day 28/2/17, my wife had bought pancakes from Sainsbury. These were not just any pancakes but Abra-ca-Debora Diddy Dutch pancakes costing £1.49 for a pack containing 24 Diddy pancakes. Continue reading Pancake Day 28/2/2017

Now when the generation 2 Pokemon came out and there was the release of the Special Items, I had noted that I received the King’s Rock which evolves Poliwhirl to Politoed and Slowpoke to Slowking. Naturally I thought that this may be a phenomenon which would be repeated, and hence I waited until the second week to see if I manage to get another special item.

After my busy week at work where things have been pretty much non-stop, I finally have the time to rest up. That is also the reason I’ve not had a chance to post anything new in the last few days. But TGIF (Thank God it’s Friday), and I can now rest and enjoy the meal my wife prepared for me. Continue reading Friday Meal

When I had completed the Pokedex with all the Pokemon that were available in England, I thought that it would be the end of Pokemon Go for me. But the day when my post came out, Niantic released the 80 Generation 2 Pokemon. And with these some new items as well, which made the game all interesting again.

It has been a long time coming, but I’ve finally collected all the Pokemon I can in England. I have caught 151 different Pokemon and seen 154 (includes the 3 regional Pokemon). The last Pokemon I managed to get was Togetic (evolved from Togepi using 50 Togepi candy). Continue reading Pokemon Go – Togetic and Completed Pokedex

As this Valentine’s day fell on a Tuesday (my normal day to cook) and is during school half-term, I was able to put in some extra time and effort to prepare the meal, just to make it extra special for my wife. I decided that I would prepare 5 dishes for the meal. Continue reading Valentine’s Day Meal

On the last day of Chinese New Year, we had friends visiting us from London. As usual, my wife wanted to prepare an evening meal for them – this time would be to celebrate the last day of CNY. The brief was fairly simple – it had to be vegetarian but also gluten-free. My wife was up to the task and set out to cook quite a few dishes. Continue reading Vegetarian and Gluten-free meal

Today being the last day of Chinese New Year, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to post about the goodies that my wife’s colleague had made for us for Chinese New Year. It was a great gesture from him, especially since he is not Chinese.  Continue reading Chinese New Year Goodies

I have always been fond of cookies since a very young age. I often reminisce about the cookie that my grandmother’s friend had made and given to her, which she had saved just for me; as you can tell, it was an experience that I will never forget. It was the nicest, loveliest cookie I had ever tasted – and is the yard stick by which other cookies are measured against. None have ever quite lived up to that standard or taste, although the French Galettes came close. But recently one of wife’s colleagues baked and gave us some cookies for Chinese New Year which brought back memories of that cookie I had eaten so many years ago. I knew we had to get that recipe.

As I have posted before, I am a huge fan of pineapple tarts and it is usually around Chinese New Year time that I get to eat these (although not necessarily every year). This Chinese New Year, my wife decided she would make pineapple tarts for me to enjoy. She managed to contact our friends who had returned to Malaysia, to get the recipe for this.
