I have given myself a big present earlier, received birthday wishes from friends and colleagues, played with the thoughtful gift from S, spent the day with my loved ones and baked coffee butter cake and cinnamon cookies :)
I cooked this simple dish for lunch which was made up of pumpkin noodles, corn, curry leaves, spring onions and soup using dashi stock, lime juice and light soya sauce. I like the sweet, sour, herby and savoury tastes in every mouthful :)
I have been trying recipes that don't require the dough to be chilled and sliced, but it seems inevitable as the cookies from 3 recipes didn't turn out well. They are either too hard, taste too healthy or have no cinnamon kick. I'm not daunted and shall try chill/slice recipe in my next experiment :)
Parents usually don't cook dinner on weekends. However, sometimes we get sick of eating outside or asking Dad to buy take-away home. Today was such a day and mom prepared the peanut soup and stir fried zucchini with prawns while I baked shepherd pie.
I enjoyed the Hunger Games movie but I prefer the book, as the book made me feel more for the characters. The movie does flesh out certain scenes in the book and I think Jennifer Lawrence played the Katniss Everdeen character quite well. After the movie, we had lunch and tea @ TWG @ Ion. We browsed at the malls for a short while before satisfying our sweet tooth @ Paul @ Ngee Ann City. I'm happy to know that both sis and I had a nice time together :)
