where am i?

where am i??? can you guess?

here's a clue:

yup that's us painting our office floor... and yes we're in our li'l office-factory-warehouse-now-school-too. woohoo!

here's a snippet of our upcoming classroom. first day of school is on monday :)

of course, all our things have to go somewhere... so imagine the mess. (spot the assistant!)

more on our school later :)


i wasn't going to snap a photo of this, but the hub insisted that i blog this since it was, in his words "excellent".

meet my grilled chicken garlic-pesto panini with onions in multi-grain bread (as inspired by his fave chixmosa sandwich from terry's).

i attempted to make something a bit more complex in the kitchen this time...

the hub's favorite: "tsukune" or japanese chicken meatball yakitori

and "chahan" or japanese fried rice...

and for me, baked cauliflower

they look good... but as for taste? not so much... hwe hwe.

i shall try and try until i succeed...

but before i sulk, here's my real pride and joy:

it's my little bowl of fresh chicken stock that i keep in my freezer.

i made it myself (!), and i use it to replace those msg-ridden knorr chicken cubes.

and while we still can't stand to eat my cooking everyday (hwe hwe), we continue our sunday lunch habit in seryna.

and yes, guess what the hub had:

as for moi, this is what i had: MY NEW FAVE SUSHI ROLL. (it beats my ol' fave since it's a healthier-but-still-with-crunchy-bits version)

it's a salmon roll -- with salmon, salmon roe and salmon skin. not too much rice... super tasty. mmmmm.

and while i'm at it, i'm sharing with you my other healthy faves that i hope one day i can make at home...

1. ebi puri puri harumaki -- japan's version of our fresh lumpia. this time with miso sauce. mmmmm.

2. my latest discovery in terry's: salmon tartar. but this time, instead of mayo, they use fromage blanc...

and that's not a parmesan crisp, it's a manchego crisp... underneath is chopped egg and capers.... mmmmmm...

cool costumes

hiya sis :)

while the hub and i came matching in his outfit-to-take-me-seriously-while-i-give-my-speech,

wanted to share with you the way more creative groups that came to the multiplicity party...

that's all :)
