Hello Kitty Moods~Breakkie & Lunch

Chinese New Year getting nearer and most of the Chinese family will do spring cleaning. Instead of bored to do all the cleaning..... I start out with cute breakfast!!! Yes!!! Cute means HelloKitty ^_^ Haha.... Well, I don't want to eat toast bread so I made pancakes, using the Cornell Hello Kitty sandwich maker to toast it! I don't really have the confidence whether it will work?? But I'm surprised that my pancakes turn out pretty good :) 

I loved to ordered green tea latte whenever I'm outside so today I'm going to tried out JustOneCookBook green tea latte recipe ^_^ Simple and yummy!!! Just click the highlighted words to view her recipe :)
So what's for today lunch?? Kitty-chan again.... :D
My kids craving for fried rice so I cooked it for today's lunch. To made this HelloKitty, you need Hello Kitty mould. Put the mould on the plate then filled in the fried rice and pressed firmly. Remove the mould and use it to cut out the eggsheet to put on top of the fried rice. Finished up all the details with kombu and crabstick ^_^ To make it nice, I sliced some cucumber thinly and applied it around the kitty rice. Also add some cucumber leave/roses. Lastly slice some oranges and apple for dessert.

I hope you will enjoy reading my today post and hope to hear from you ^_^ Do followed my Facebook page & Instagram for latest updates! Happy Weekend :D
