We finally got to meet Mr Helios today! Like Waverly, Helios hails from a special place in Australia. Missy feels a particular affinity with this little guy because she feels somewhat responsible for his being here, having bridged Helios' Mom and his breeder. For that, she thinks Helios is a bit like a Godson!
Oooh are we a foursome now?
N-ah. I think Helios will be quite happy to go home to his loving MM, M and big brother, Herbie.
So Aunt HL had us over yesterday for a much belated housewarming. While the folks shared lots of fun and laughter in the kitchen decorating their Chocolate Strawberry Cake (which we had no share of because it was chocccolate), we were kept out of bounds to the kitchen (read: separated from Missy), a rather peculiar house rule set by a certain crank that was our Uncle LP. That made my little sister, Waverly, cry.
"But...but...but...we always get to join Missy in the kitchen!"
Here’s a step-by-step illustration on How To (Over) Decorate A Cake:
1. Half the cake to make two layers. 2. Whip up some fresh cream. 3. Spread whipped cream on bottom cake layer. 4. Line with strawberries followed by more whipped cream. 5. Top with remaining half of cake and frost all over with whipped cream. 6. Pipe little flowers all over cake. 7. Top with more strawberries and voila! 8. The cake turned out pretty decent, hey?
Just when Missy thought enough of food pictures…oooh but doesn’t this remind you of myyy anniversary cake?
So we didn’t get any cake but Aunt HL did cook us a yummy dinner of macaroni, chicken and veggies......except it was two hours late!
"Gimme it! Gimme it! Gimme it!!!"
And here’s what the folks had. Uncle LP cooked it!
Looks yummy! (Missy: It was yummy!)
Later on at night, Aunt HL helped us break another one of Uncle LP’s nutty house rules when she let us into the TV room so we could snuggle with Missy as we were accustomed to. We really thought we were doing Uncle LP a favour because we didn’t think he would like us to make scratches or break his glass door panels like Fee did!
Thanks for having us over, Aunt HL! We still love ya’, Uncle LP!
We started the day with our teeth-cleansing routine gnawing on oxtails....
Must . keep . teeth . clean .
We didn't get to go on any outing this weekend because Missy was much too tired from a whole week of work. She's got to adjust her internal clock to get used to work hours after a restful three weeks. She did find some energy though to bake us one of our favourite snacks, Madeleines!
Since pandan seems to be all the rage now, Missy decided to make some pandan-flavoured Madeleines too! They're the ones in green, see?
Can you tell how soft and fluffy they are?
Milk and Madeleines for snacks!
Later on in the evening, we had Grandmama's wholesome Corn and Carrot Soup for dinner, with minced meat and rice.
7. I have a way with my jie jie (big sister in Chinese)despite her iciness and temper!
This is fun! We're tagging Dino, Zuiko, Leica, Kennie, Kyra, Luna and Fable!
Afternote: We had missed out Brandee and are glad Aunt HL included her. We hope it's not too late to tag Zaccheus now. We think this would be a good time to reminisce all the wonderful pawsomes that was Zaccheus.
