Working Out

30/04/2016

So we don’t have a helper at home. It’s a good weekly workout for me! These are the equipment I use! haha!

My favourite is the mop. The head is flat, and the cords are long. The stick is flexible enough for me to push down on to the floor. Love it!

I am almost tempted to just continue and not have a helper… But. ah well…..!

What an amazing day. Three sets of curry puff from three different members of staff in one morning. image

It’s kinda fun.

It also shows our similar tastebuds Haha!

What’s more, two were purchased from the same shop!

Don’t you just love such folk?!

 

Edible Scales

25/04/2016

Who would have thought such things existed for fresh-water fish? I certainly never knew!

We were told that this particular fish, the Empura, is highly prized and very expensive. Hubby was gifted one and so we decided to take it to a restaurant to check it out.

When we showed it to the chefs, they immediately recognised it! Then they wanted to charge us extra to cook it! Hubby decided to walk away, and I joined him, grumbling as we did. That got the manager on duty worried because there were other guests. Good tactic eh?

Next thing you know, we got a good price for it and settled down with some friends to wait for it.

The wait was certainly worth it!

The fish was sooooo nice! You have to taste it to know what I mean. The flesh melts in your mouth! The scales are nice to eat – they have an unusual texture – firm yet not rubbery. Yummy…. The simple steamed as is was the perfect way to cook it, bringing out the full flavours of the fish. Well done chefs!

I am now waiting for Hubby to be gifted with another … I hope it will be as soon as possible!

Sound of Music!

23/04/2016

Around this time last year Hubby and I were in Europe, enjoying the weather and the scenery there. Together with some friends we made a quick hop over to Austria. The place where we stayed was where the famous Von Trapp Family lived! thumb_IMG_1317_1024

Seeing the lifestyle there made my mind wander to the famous musical/movie Sound of Music which is based on the Von Trapp Family. It made me wish I had a guitar with me to play those songs, like the Major did Ha! Ha! With hindsight, perhaps if I had squier guitar sold by Musician Friends I would not have been left wanting! As it was, I had to be content with just watching musical displays and reading history.

Still, it was a good holiday indeed. So good, I still look back on it with fond memories; music-filled ones!
