BRAVE Dinner Foodart

Finally I made BRAVE!!! It's been on my list-to-do ever since I saw it from dear talented Samantha Lee. I love the way she used pasta for hair but since I still have some left over organic red yeast ramen, why not I use it as BRAVE hair ^_^ I cooked all the left over ramen for tonight's dinner and took some portion out to made into foodart. 
Here is the closer look of BRAVE. Shape one round onigiri for face and another triangle onigiri for body. Then I cover the body with veggies as her dress. Arrange the organic red yeast ramen as hair and finish up with nori details. The arrow made of toasted spaghetti and cheese for arrow.

Simple dinner plate with some eggs, fish floss, parsley on top. Cut out cheese for BRAVE words using letter cutters.

Hope you like today's dinner foodart and wish all of you happy weekends.

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...

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 =_=")

  2. Add cold water then mix well.
  3. Add pancake mix flour then mix well.

  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.

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 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!
