Just for you, to be a wonderful lady

Long time no see….

Posted by icyelite on February 1, 2014

It’s been a long time since I had last posted. Been very busy with work to marriage to house to work and all the way till now, my resting day during 2nd day of chinese new year of 2014.

Though I had been taking pictures of foods but none were posted :p

Work has been piling up a lot and I do not have any spare time for baking. Every weekend, I just want to have a good rest.

However, this year, despite the busy work during cny, I took a day off and started my usual cny baking. Hope that this continues and I should continue sharing…

Granted my wishes

Posted by icyelite on December 20, 2010

As per previous post, I had finally managed to attend baking courses while I’m clearing my leaves for the year.

This time, I had attended 2 classes. 1 class is baking cookie and decorating it with royal icing while the other class is decorating cupcakes.

It’s my first time attending baking class, I hoped to attend more of such classes. Although the class seems to be simple but its enjoying cos I had  learn how to decorate a cookie and cupcakes.

Hehe.. since its near Christmas. I baked cookies and decorate it with royal icing as Christmas pressies for dear’s colleagues and my colleagues. This is the first time I gave someone a Christmas presents.

I baked an original butter cookies with mild orange scent and chocolate cookies. My colleagues commented that the cookies are cute.. with gingerbread man/women shape and Christmas tree shape. I’m so happy when I received feedbacks that I can sell my cookies to other people. Lolz. Hope all my friends and colleagues enjoy the cookies. =D

Should I go for baking courses?

Posted by icyelite on May 28, 2010

I had been thinking about this question for quite sometimes. Surfing online for all places that provides baking classes. Places that are more well-known: Phoon Huat and Shermay’s Cooking School.

Phoon Huat is cheap but location and the food taught doesnt seems to be what I want. Shermay’s Cooking School sounds good, opened by Mr Lee’s granddaughter, but the course is quite expensive.

Maybe I should go back to basics, surf online for recipe or from recipe books, that would be the cheapest method.

Few more days to Taiwan..

Posted by icyelite on April 20, 2010

Just few more days to Taiwan but the vegetarian places I found doesn’t seems to be near to where I’m going to. Most of the places needs to travel by bus, quite a distance away from the MRT.

Most of the places found are restaurant style, seldom see any stores that are located at hawker centres (or maybe those are found in hawker centre won’t even have a link in the internet).

Had been browsing the forums and there are raves about the modern toilet restaurant, cafe grazie and tamogoya (egg-themed restaurant). These are not vegetarian restaurants but they do have at least 1 or 2 vegetarian dishes. So if you are visiting these places with your friends and you are not a very strict vegetarian, you won’t be hungry.

Anyway, here’s the link of the vegetarian places I had found so far (mainly focus on Taipei):

While browsing through the above links, it seems that most of the stores had buffet and you pay by how much you take (calculate by weight). I still have a big question mark about these places, whether the food is without onion/garlic, are the food really suitable for vegetarians, etc.  I also need to find out the exact location of it and whether it is near to where I’m visiting.  But I hope these helps for those who are going to Taipei.

Begins to start praying hard that I won’t need to eat breads and cup noodles everyday. Hope to find the restaurants above.

Planning Taiwan Itinerary

Posted by icyelite on March 16, 2010

About 1 more month time before I depart for Taiwan. This is the first time  I’m traveling overseas with Andy.  Everything is free and easy, so we need to plan our itinerary ourselves. Will be taking Jetstar (with extra leg space) and staying at TS Hotel @ Ximending.

Of cos! Our itinerary will include eating at vegetarian stores, which I will review abit though I might not have the chance to visit the place again.  But for those who are traveling there, you can consider those places.

Planning of our 7 days 6 nights “深度之旅” and searching of vegetarian stores begins now…
