Easter in September

Today we baked some Easter cookies. Finally tried out our new Australian cookie cutters (Thanks again, Yee Yee!). Check out the shapes!

[Angel, Bear, Kangaroo, Rabbit and Koala Easter cookies :-)]

I think we could have chosen a different recipe to do more justice to the cutters, though... the raisins really got in the way! The poor little bear even lost its arm... Anyway, that's another baking project in the bag... :-)

Rich Kaya

We bought some kaya (egg jam) from Tanjong Tokong yesterday. It is reputed to be one of the best kaya around. It has a coarse texture which gives it a homemade character. It tastes really yummy!

It is made and sold by the owners of a little coffee stall at the small foodcourt area of the Tanjong Tokong flats (if you're coming from Gurney Drive, the junction to the flats is at the traffic lights just before the Chinese Swimming Club). The coffee stall is apparently famous for its toast bread and kaya. They proudly displayed a newspaper article featuring the stall.

Bak Kut Teh in Ayer Itam

We have been reminding ourselves to try different places to dine at but we always seem to end up at somewhere familiar.

A Bak Kut Teh shop we usually patronise is the Cheng Heong Restaurant in Ayer Itam. It's located near the Ayer Itam roundabout, three shops away from the Esso petrol station.

Buying Dryness

Last Saturday (9 September 2006), we bought ourselves 36cm x 31cm x 44 cm of dryness. Purpose? To prevent mould from growing onto our precious camera lenses. Yup, we got ourselves a Sunpod dry cabinet.

Matters of the Heart in KL

We were in KL from 31 August until 5 September 2006. We tended to various matters - visiting loved ones, learning new bus routes, attended concerts, shopping, photography, attended a work-related course, and matters of the heart...

Sixth Encounter

We presented at the 62nd Catholic Engaged Encounter Weekend held from 25-27 August 2006 at the College General, Penang. 20 couples attended the weekend. We were on the presenting team with Fr. Francis Andrew, and Chris and Lina Baptist. This is our sixth weekend on the presenting team whilst it was the first for Fr. Francis.
