Annabelle's Arrival

Mom and Dad went for a holiday to Pulau Redang recently. When they returned home, they brought along with them a green turtle! Since we are such ardent fans of the green turtle (read about our stay at Chagar Hutang), they decided that they would give it to us as a holiday present.

We named her Annabelle. We think it is a 'she' because of her short tail.

Solvita Success

Last Tuesday (11 July 2006), we made another attempt at bread baking. This round it was with the Solvita bread-mix. We put in only half of it and topped-up another half with plain bread flour. In the past, we've always got non-springy, non-fluffy and non-chewy-starchy bread.

This time round, it was practically a complete success! The best we've baked so far. What we did differently this time was:
1. We baked a loaf instead of buns.
2. We switched to a more expensive (and softer) margarine. Being misers, we previously invested in a cheaper margarine that was slightly softer than a brick.
3. We used a little bit more yeast.
4. We kneaded the dough more vigorously for the second rising.

We were involved in the 61st Catholic Engaged Encounter Weekend which was held at College General, Penang from 30 June-2 July 2006. We were on the presenting team with Fr. Edwin Paul, and Chris and Lina Baptist. This was Fr. Edwin's debut with CEE Penang and the fifth weekend for us. 23 couples participated in this weekend.
