Hama Bead Crafting

The kids have picked up a new hobby this year~ Hama Bead Crafting. It has been the ” in thing” since 2014 and we are slowly catching on to the latest trends.

I’ ve been  pining a lot of pictures on my  Hama Pinterest Board and love the designs that I have been seeing.  The kids too have their favourites and have picked up a few designs to start creating.

They were inspired by the tools that they saw in the game Minecraft and attempted to make their own version of the diamond sword and pick axe.

Monkey boy chose a mixture of blues for the sword and gave red accents to represent a blazing sword.  He named it Fire  & Ice.

Tiger girl has no interest in Minecraft and drew inspiration from her favourite show  My Little Pony instead.  Both of us worked on creating one of her favourite ponies – Rainbow Dash.

Tiger girl had so much fun that she requested to create another pony. This time she decided on Pinkie Pie. I on the other hand tried my hand replicating a famous Sanrio character- My Melody.

I decided to make my creation into a key chain as a Valentine’s Day present for a girlfriend of mine who loves My Melody. I hope that she enjoys her little present from me.

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

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.
