Konnyaku With Blended Pineapple :) Yummy!


I remembered those days I used to make  konnyaku jelly for the Sunday school kids. The kids love them and you can see they finished them real fast . Yesterday Wild Boar made them for dessert. He loves pineapple and whoa, I don't mind chewing a few of these springy jelly . He blended fresh pineapple and added to the konyaku jelly for a refreshing flavor.  I like it especially if I don't have to prepare them LOL!  Thanks WB for these addictive jelly.  When you hold the fish shaped jelly in your hand, it feels exactly like the real fish...the slippery feel :p

Facelift For The Porch

I am thinking of giving our porch a facelift by having an outdoor wall fountain installed.  It would be nice to hear the sound of  running water outside the house , of course not from the garden tap but from  the wall fountain :)   It will definitely soothe our souls after a hard day work in the office.  And Wild Boar is supportive of this idea. There are many types of outdoor wall fountains to choose from and I think I know which to choose.  One that will suit the side of our porch :)   Our next bonus will be spend on this outdoor wall fountain for sure.  I love the sound of running water from fountains. It gives you a sense of relaxation and tranquility.

2  mangoes
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup plain simple syrup ( I cup water:2 cups sugar )

Method:

1.Cut mangoes into chunks and put in the blender. Add 1 tbsp of simple syrup and puree until it turns creamy.

2.In a large measuring cup, add 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt.  Then pour the mango puree on top.

3. Add enough simple syrup to the mixture so that you have 2 cups total.

4. Pour into a large bowl and whisk it all together.

5. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2/3 cup Greek yogurt and the leftover simple syrup.

6. Now you have yogurt mixture and mango mixture.  Place both mixtures in the refrigerator for 30-60 mins until they are a little more firm ( for nice marbling )

We have two cell group members whose birthdays fall in the month of August. Wild Boar and Alice. So we decided to have a dinner for them and celebrating both birthdays together. Isn't it wonderful to celebrate with another sister in christ? And truly we had a wonderful time not just feasting on the delicious food but also a time of wonderful fellowship together. Building up relationship with one another and upholding each other in love. Cutting cakes together and blowing out the candles together is fun , makes you years younger...LOL! I would love that when my birthday comes.   Well, Wild Boar had a great time this year. He is a year older younger and he had 3 birthday treats this year.....(  I will post up in my next coming posts what he had for the 1st and 2nd treats :p  ) Wild Boar is truly a Wild Boar ! nom nom nom away !   This post will be on his 3rd treat.

Musang King



Wow....managed to get some nice durians for Piggy Josh :)  He was looking for  Musang King durians and finally afer I called Claire of Caring Is Not Only Sharing , she recommended me this old man selling by the road side along Canning Estate.  Musang King costs RM26/kilo ...we bought 2 musang king for RM80 and one D24 @ RM12 a kilo ....I have stopped eating durians 4 years ago but seeing this thick creamy durian, I could not resist and took two seeds LOL!   Temptation is great and I really need to pray....Heavenly Father, deliver me from temptation of these king fruit, Amen !







Do not be deceived by the regular look of the seed. But as you savor the pulp , you will notice the meatiness and the creaminess of each bite. For durian connoisseurs , they will immediately notice the exquisite taste as you swallow the creaminess down the throat. Therefore it was money well spent on an earlier thought of extravagance.


Happy Holidays !

Durians And Termites :)

Last weekend, WB and I visited an old friend of ours who stayed alone since his wife died a few years ago.  We had lunch together and after which we adjoined back to his house for some durians. Mmm talking about durians , it is durian season again and there are plentiful this season :) WB is a great fan of durians so you can imagine how much he ate that day :p   As we were enjoying the fruit, I noticed that Derek's stairs were given a new coat of shellac polish.  I asked him whether he had his stairs repainted with a coat of shellac .  He told us that his stairs was given termite treatment a few months ago. He realized that the wood were starting to be infested with termite and he straight away bought a 510ml can of premise foam to control termites from further destroying his timber staircase.  Premise Foam termite pest control is a non-repellent insecticide available in an instant portable application. It is a simple and unique way to deliver spot treatment of foam to control termites and ants and other wood infesting pests.  Derek was fast to act on it before the whole staircase was destroyed by these wood infesting pests. Great job Derek !
