2. Combine water, vanilla extract and coloring in another bowl and add into mixture 1.
3. Mix the dough then divide them to 25g ball, same goes to the filling. 
4. Flatten the dough with palm and wrap the filling inside.
5. Place the dough into the mould (I do not have mould so I just shape them with hands)
6. Place in air tight container and chill in fridge before serving.

This is the second batch actually, the first batch was not very successful.......





I put too much food coloring xD
I think nobody dares to eat also, LOL!

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

I am fine...

... just busy 😅

I really want to blog and blog hop every week but time is really not enough!

I remember when I was working few years ago, I could at least blog during lunch hour, or when workload wasn't that heavy, or when boss was not around.
But after being a full time mum, it seems almost impossible because both kids and house chores have taken most of my times!! 😱

Anyway, just wanted to show face and let whoever still reading this know that I am doing fine =)

I dedicate most of my times to them, no regrets no complaints ;)
Notice the necklace I was wearing? It was a craft work from Aden at school for Mother's Day. There's a number 8 written on it. I asked him why 8 and not other numbers? I was thinking he might says that because his mummy is 'sam pat' (三八) xD But his answer is, because 8 is his favorite number! Phew! Lucky! Hahaha!! (I think too much xD)

Ever since he went to kindergarten, he has improved a lot and I am really thankful and relieved!   Though …
