First post on WP official! Meaning this is not a Dayre-exported entry haha. Feels good to come back to a familiar space. Although the contents I blog about is quite different from the days before Dayre.
It’s throwback Thursday today so I shall update about February’s cake cutting at the office. There are 4 Feb babies but all but one turned up. 😒 it’s okay we get to eat more cake lol.
We get to eat cakes from different places every month – kudos to J who is in charge of buying them. This month we are trying Boufé! I’ve heard much about this cafe but never tried their cakes before so I was excited!
There were 3 Galaxy cakes. Unfortunately idk if I’m getting old or what, I find them too sweet for my liking.
Also, I pondered for a while how much colouring were on those cake glaze? I mean, they look too Instagram worthy they don’t even look like cakes.
Should have taken a cross-section picture of them.
K was obviously very happy nobody to snatch the cakes! She was the only birthday person around!
This cracked me up!!
A friend shared in our whatsapp group and I immediately lol when I saw it.
My friend’s EDD is today!! Which is a vvv good date because (1) she and her hubby are from Scouts ⚜️AND IT IS FOUNDER’S DAY TODAY!! (2) it’s 人日 which is everybody’s birthday so it’s very apt.
Happy Founder’s Day to all my Sister Guides and Brother Scouts! 🤞🏻(don’t have the salute hand sign so this is the closest)
Praying for a smooth and safe delivery. Can’t wait to receive her good news!!
After 38 long days of waiting, I finally received my steamer!! 😪 even lodged a ticket on Lazada and they gave me $5 back so this steamer is less than $20 hehe. Okay lah cheap stuff I don’t complain.
It was totally worth the wait though! Built is good, quality is like quite sturdy. Seller even gave an adaptor cos the appliance came with China plug. I like how compact it is. Easy to clean and keep too!!
This is the double layer Bear brand steamer. I have heard of this brand before, quite a lot of people use it. Originally from China I suppose. Taobao has tons of different variation from small to big. But after we convert and add shipping charges, it’s cheaper to buy locally from Lazada.
But I think the seller also import from overseas that’s why it took so long!Within a couple of mins, it heated up. Yay! We tested some frozen dumplings. Done in 15 mins! No need to watch over the fire too! So happy!! Don’t have to use my Happy Call pot to steam anymore! I’m looking forward to steam rice, fish, pau, egg, milk, etc. Shall test and review!
In the box, we found a measuring cup. At first glance, I was like I don’t need another measuring cup and wanted to throwaway. Upon a closer look, I found a needle sticking out from the bottom.
Tried to remove it but it was impossible to yank out. Showed hubby and he went “ohhh this is the injection mould pin which they forgot to remove aiyo. Defective!”
I got scared!
After all I’m not confident with MIC products. I replied “isn’t it dangerous?? They never check one ah. Hmm okay better dispose asap before we hurt ourselves.”
And upon an EVEN CLOSER look, hubs went “alamak!! It’s supposed to be there lah!”
At the bottom of the cup it’s written 小心伤手 or something. Which means be careful of the needle lah?
Then hubs very cleverly exclaimed “it’s for you to poke your eggs before steaming so they won’t explode!!!”
Me = 🙄
Anything also he say. Didn’t believe him and went to read the user manual. Which took quite a while because my Chinese comprehension not very good. Then I found it!!
It really says to poke eggs!
I swear hubs gave the biggest smirk ever.
Proof that he’s right. Kept repeating I have to “trust an engineer”. 😅 hubby and I have this long standing bicker about how he’s an engineer so he must be good at things lol. Super stereotype.
