The latest gadget that caught my eye was the Apple Soundstick. The acoustics is fantastic and the set looks cool.
Check out the note book stands with attached coolers.

Unfortunately for me, I am not that cook at cooking peranakan cuisine as I learned to cook from my late father and my late Aunt May. Both of whom are Cantonese. My mum knew how to cook the nyonya dishes but then the food she cooked for her family were mostly Cantonese cuisine.
I am not sure about others but Ginger Ale does wonders to help get rid of the bloated feeling in my tummy. I will usually be fine after drinking a can or two.

My sister's family had dim sum for breakfast and they Whatsapped me a picture of the Har Gau (蝦餃) that they had at a restaurant in Singapore. Looking at it, I can already tell that it is delicious.These shrimp dumplings are transparent and smooth. Traditionally, har gow should have at least seven and preferably ten or more pleats imprinted on its wrapper. The skin must be thin and translucent, yet be sturdy enough not to break when picked up with chopsticks. It must not stick to the paper, container or the other ha gow in the basket. The shrimp must be cooked well, but not overcooked. The amount of meat should be generous, yet not so much that it cannot be eaten in one bite.
Unlike my uncle, I am very bad when it comes to playing any musical instrument. During my college days, I had to learn the recorder and had to really labour to pass the test.

If the Shroud is the actual burial cloth of the Messiah then it will bear witness to the fact that a man named Jesus actually lived and died in ancient Palestine, but it may also present physical proof that a miraculous event took place after his death which caused his image to be imprinted on the Shroud.
When I saw this painting, the first thing that crossed my mind was that Jesus reminded me of Keith Urban (see pictures below). Do you agree with me?

I saw them at the De Garden Craft Trail which is held during the last weekend of each month. Each sells at RM10. Initially I wanted to get one but then decided against it as it would only end up in my display cabinet which is already very crowded.
By the way, the strawberries were not grown by her. She bought them from Cameron Highlands.
