Waffles, Pancakes and Noodles

I love Sundays. The kids and I do not need to wake up at 6 am for school and we can sleep in to about 8 before getting ready for church.    It’s nice to be sit down at the dining table and have a leisurely breakfast with them.

I recently bought a Hello Kitty waffle pan after the Kenwood Multi-snacker died on us. I had that machine for three years and it suddenly decided to go to the electronics heaven above.

I’m so loving this new waffle pan of mine. The waffles come out crisp  and tasty and it is very easy to clean after use.

Besides waffles the kids also love eating pancakes.  Sometimes we eat the pancakes with ice-cream for breakfast. Who says that  ice-cream has to be paired with waffles only. :)

 

Ton Toro  Ramen from a Japanese Restaurant

Ton Toro Ramen from a Japanese Restaurant

This is one of my favourite dishes to order when we are eating out in a Japanese restaurant. I love the tasty soup stock and that the pork is really tender. This is one of the dishes that I hope to be able to make at home when I get the time. I guess that I need to find the recipe for good ramen stock first.

Birds and Flowers

Yellow Hibicus

Brightly colored flowers are what I love looking at.  I’ve seen many red  and pink hibiscus but this one really caught my eye. A yellow hibiscus. I  seldom see hibiscus in this color and it was certainly worth a second glance.

I saw this flower in a hanging pot while walking up the ramp to Penang Hill from the train station.  Doesn’t it look lovely? I wouldn’t mind  to have some pots hanging outside the house.

I saw this flower as we entered the Ginger garden at Penang Hill. It was our first time seeing so many different types of ginger. There is a ginger garden too at the Singapore Botanic Garden and maybe I should revisit the place with the kids  during the next holidays.

There was a  bird enclosure at the Ginger garden and were fascinated by the birds we saw.  The kids spotted this peacock in an enclosure.

It  was a pity the peacock didn’t open up it’s tail feathers when we were there or it would have been an awesome to be able to snap such a shot.

I saw this interesting looking red eye bird called a crowned pigeon at another enclosure. It was the first time I saw a bird with blood red eyes.  It looks really ominous to me.

I do love the sky blue of its feathers as it’s a really lovely color.  However this is not a bird which I would like to admire in an aviary.

I love the vibrant colors on the parrot’s body. The different colors of Red and blue make it pleasant to the viewing eye.
