A Sugee Cake Just To Say Thank You.

29 Jun

I recently stopped work and really wanted to thank my boss and I knew from the very start sugee cake was her facourite cake of all time. So I couldn’t not bake it for her. I never really baked it before, and was a little nervous to be giving her my very first attempt to be honest. But as I was leaving for Melbourne very soon, I didn’t have much time to bake another. So a successful first attempt was what I was praying for!

Thankfully, I read Ju’s post on The Little Teochew (yes the same awesome person who baked and shared her Japanese Cheesecake recipe, thank you!) a couple of months ago, and bookmarked the recipe of the sugee cake she baked (adapted from Cherry on a Cake) and hers looks amazing! So I took a deep breath and plucked up my courage and gave this a try.

Ju did use almond silvers but I didn’t have that, and used pumpkin seeds instead. However, they didn’t stay on top and sank all the way to the bottom instead! hehe I must say it didn’t look very pretty, but it did taste pretty good! and goes well with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Thankfully, my boss enjoyed it very much! (: So thank you Zurin, for sharing the recipe, and thank you Ju for giving the tips!

Breakfast At The Quarter

28 Mar
The Quarter
27 Degraves Street
Melbourne VIC 3000
Tel : 03 9650 6156

did I tell you? Baby’s got a job! One that he is really excited about and looking forward to start. A health club instructor. yes I know, it sounds weird. But really it’s just a name and he is in fact a gym instructor. haha. I think this sounds better! He took his first spin class this morning and is a personal trainer after which! (: I am very sure he will be awesome in this, cause he has been working out since forever and is also MY personal trainer in our garage, I mean, gym. haha

so CONGRATULATIONS sweetie! hehe

His training started last week and his shifts, I must say, is at the weirdest hours of the day. Not all the shifts, just one. haha 6-9am! Cause it’s a corporate gym hehe so he has to be there before they start work. So my poor baby has to be up at 430am during these shifts! But I guess, when you like a job, it doesn’t really matter what time you have to wake up. hehe

So I went to meet him after his training last Friday and he was so sweet to treat me to breakfast! And because he knew I have been craving for pancakes for the longest time, we were on the hunt for a place with pancakes besides Pancake Parlour. hah

so we walked to our favourite lane to have breakfast. and found The Quarter! (:

and yes! they have pancakes!!! hehe

yummmm. fluffy buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and strawberries! Who’s a happy girl? hehe

and breakfast won’t be complete without a cup of chai latte!

baby ordered the big breakfast and it was a plate with everything : eggs, sausage, bacon, spinach,mushrooms and tomatoes!

it was a good spread and the scramble eggs are really yummy! though I do prefer mine to be creamy and soft. but this would also do! hehe

Thank you sweetie for the yummy breakfast and all the best for the first the of work!

i love you.

all smiles.

missing St. Gerard’s

31 Aug

time really flies.
it’s been a year since I taught at St Gerard’s
and I celebrated this special day with the other teachers and Ms Vasugi.
and boy do I miss them.
I miss the super adorable and cheeky children
and I miss working with the teachers as well.

It’s such an honour to be able to work with all of them
and I can’t wait to be able to catch up with them when I’m back at the end of the year.
I’m just so blessed to be able to work there
and gain the experience of a life time.

Happy Teacher’s Day!
you all truly deserve it.


Just want to say Thank You

Knowing that my time working at St Gerard’s is coming to an end.
for now at least
till i come back from my studies.
I decided to bake for my principal and the teachers.
just to thank them for making my work there so enjoyable (:

so i made for them my carrot cupcake with orange and cream cheese icing
and I am so glad they all loved it! (:

i baked a total of 25 cupcakes! (: hehe
and they are almost all gone in a day.

Although I had a bad start at work yesterday morning
But my principal was awesome standing up for me infront of a parent.

Really spoilt the whole day at work.
But well.

I’m sure you’ll see why after the photos that follows :

Always a class favourite activity of the day

Picture talk also gets their attention (:
