Hello Kitty Pancake Breakfast & Bangkok Trips Photos

I'm back from my family trips to Bangkok ^_^ Had a great getaway with shopping, eating, walking & sweating!!! Haha...yes was super HOT!!! Today I'm at home with my kids (still school holidays) so thought of making breakfast and also update my blogs ^_^ Looks like I had gone away for long..... Well, to make up I will share some of the Hello Kitty House Bangkok photos after this breakfast :) Hope you could enjoy reading.
To make a quick breakfast, I use Cornell Hello Kitty Sandwich Toaster to make pancakes ^_^ It's been awhile have not use :D Just mixed the pancake mix flour and pour to the sandwich toaster if you have it. Easy and perfect pancakes turned out ^_^ Lovely right?
Pour some caramel syrups and decorate some salad & fruits. Ta-da...yummy breakfast is done!

I started queuing at 9.45am and the shop open at 10am but.....the staff came out apologize to wait for another 15minutes. So overall 10.15am we're inside ^_^ We got our table number and what we did was taking pictures before heading our table! Haha....Since we're the 2nd one who go in and no customer sitting around, better grab the chance to take photos!!! Let's enjoy the photos below :)
Let my kids sat down at our table number first and I need to queue up to purchase yummy drinks or cakes. We had our heavy breakfast at our hotel so this round will just light snacks. Most customers I saw mainly to eat their breakfast sets! Hmm....too bad our tummy can't filled in more foods =_="
After purchased they will served the foods to our table. So let's explore more.....hubby's job to take pictures ^_^
Yay, here's our ordered: From the left Iced Latte; Red Velvet Cupcake; Green Tea Cupcake & Kitty Smoothies ^_^ The cupcakes were yummy and I loved the green tea :P
After the foods, we went to the ground floor to explore the Hello Kitty Shop & Spa. Sadly, nothing much things to see...

Kids helped out making this Black Sesame Pancake芝麻麥煎 for their tea break but after done almost ate it all :D Looks like they can't wait to taste!!! Anyway, I followed this recipe by 厨房一只柴 mobile dodocook多多开伙 App or you can view at this LINK ^_^ I changed the flour to Pancake Mix since I don't have Low protein flour at home as well I didn't add peanut花生 :p So basically just simple ingredients that I'm using with little changes (lack of ingredients at home =_=")

Pancake Ingredients: *Recipe by 厨房一只柴 at dodocook.com
  • 150g    Pancake Mix Flour
  • 1          Large Egg
  • 15g      Castor sugar 
  • 25g      Honey
  • 120ml  Cold water
  • 15ml    Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp   Green Tea powder (optional)
Fillings Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp   Black sesame powder
  • 1 tbsp   Brown sugar (I don't have black sugar so use brown sugar instead)
Methods: *You can view the tutorial pictures from the link*
  1. Mix egg, castor sugar, honey. Beat until bubbles.
  2. Add cold water then mix well.
  3. Add pancake mix flour then mix well.
  4. Divide the batter half and one half mix with the green tea powder if making double colours pancake.
  5. Low heat non stick pan (I still spray some oil on top), pour 1st half of batter then 2nd half of green tea batter. Cover and maintain low heat.
  6. Mix the black sesame powder & brown sugar.
  7. Wait until the batter have small holes can spread the fillings on top.
  8. Once the bottom batter brown can fold it half to close.

Hello Kitty Star Wars Princess Leia

Today's lunch at home, I made Star Wars theme foodart and this round is Princess Leia ^_^ Once again I made Hello Kitty dressed up as Princess Leia :) I don't quite like Kitty-chan's hands as they look so thin and don't match the body =_=" Oh well.....my daughter already can't wait to eat!! So skip redo the hands...

Shape two onigiri, one for Hello Kitty head and the other one as body. Red dress made from crab stick. Hair bun made from rice wrap nori. To let it stand, I insert double spaghetti for head & body but still will drop =_=" In the end, the chicken & mini mug handle support Hello Kitty :D

Lastly, the plate looks plain so I decorate Hello Kitty faces by sprinkle some cocoa powder at side (using HK gadgets view picture below).

Ta-daa......lunch is serve!!! Nom nom nom....Happy Monday!

CuteZCute Cuddle Palz : Koala Bear Foodart

Received my new cutters from Bentousa CuteZCute Cuddle Palz and finally open ceremony for tonight's dinner foodart. There are so many animals designed cutters and to view it can just click the pictures after end of my post. I choose Koala Bear for my dinner plate (end up my daughter eats it =_=') Home cooked simple dinner dishes for my family so just did some arrangement and shape the rice using the cutter! Pretty and easy!! Loving it ^_^

To shape the rice as Koala. I put the rice on cling wrap then wrap up and put to the cutter mould. Just pressed along the rice after the shape of the Koala head done. Same method goes to the Koala body. For Koala face features, I use kombu or boiled seaweed so that you can easily cut out the shape using CuteZcute cutter.
Stir-fried some french beans with mini squids/carrots and pan-fried mackerel fish.

Mushroom soup with organic alphabets (sink to the soup) and I toast a Cutezcute Cuddle Bear using wheat bread and lay on top of the soup. 

Well, I hope you have a wonderful long holidays with your loved ones if you're from Malaysia ^_^ As well Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri for all Muslim readers!

Bento2014#Jul17~Hello Kitty Trooper

When I introduce "Star Wars Movie" to my daughter, the only character she likes was the Princess Leia then after watched the "Star Wars Phantom Menace" she prefers Queen Padmé Amidala ^_^ As long the movie has princess or lady roles she will liked :) I think this is my first bento creation for "Star Wars" theme. But more to Hello Kitty transform hahaha.... I find it cute! Meet Hello Kitty Trooper for today's lunch. 

Here is the close up Hello Kitty Trooper ^_^ Rice and chicken floss inside then cover up with rice on top. Next, draw the Hello Kitty Trooper picture onto baking paper then put on top of nori sheet and follow the outline using penknife (Bought new tool kit so give it a try without using scissor but honestly I still prefer scissor). Red bow was red food gel and didn't turn out well after adding =_="

Side dishes: gyoza, broccoli, carrots, grapes and orange.

Hope you like this Hello Kitty Trooper and perhaps I will try out making other Star Wars characters during my kids school break. No bento for school but lunch bento at home ^_^ Happy Thursday!
