Chocolate Chip Flapjacks

Participated in the first bake-out organised by Sweet and Simple Bakes.
It is my first attempt at making flapjacks and I feel that the looks are not so appealing. Taste wise, a bit too sweet for me (as I don't really have a sweet tooth). SH likes it and commented that it is very chewy, akin to that of a "sinful" muesli bar. As I have never tasted how an orginial flapjack is like, so not really sure how successful I am in this bake-out.


Saw this beautiful Thai snack at the Singapore Food Expo last Sunday.
I was attracted to it by its bright and shiny colours. Didn't see this in Bangkok during our recent trip there. SH was equally mystified and so we bought some to try.
This snack showed me the true meaning of the phrase "Looks are Deceiving". The first bite gave me such an electrocuting shock as I totally didn't expect it to taste like this: the skin was extremely QQ, whereas the fillings made of green bean (I suspect) and coconut was sweet, soft and melt in your mouth.
Sad to say, after devouring 2 boxes, we still do not know what is the name of this lovely Thai snack. We called it "Sawasdee" which is the restaurant's name.

Swiss Culinary Class

Attended a Swiss Culinary Class on 10 May 2008.
A total of 8 dishes was taught over a 3-hour long session. Very interesting and interactive class conducted by Swiss nationals. An eye-opening session for me indeed!
The best part: I get to eat all the fantastic dishes and was so full after the class that I completely skipped dinner that evening.

Smoked Pork Sausage with Leek and Potatoes

Oven Baked Grated Potatoes with Bacon

Sliced Veal Zurich Style
