Confuse with…

I don’t know about your kids but Sarah is easily confused between these two animals - lion and tiger.

Daddy has hard time telling her the obvious difference, one has stripes and the other doesn’t; yet she still says “Tiger” when she saw a lion or vice versa.

I think she got it from me. It was funny to know even her mommy also has the similar confusion. But after some “re-education” by hubby, now I no longer mixed up the tiger with female lion.

13, 14, 16, 17… That’s how Sarah recites her numbers. She started good from one up to 14, but later she will skip 15.

When told to read out the 15, she was puzzled; she will then said 13, 14, 15, 17…

I think her mind has way to play tricks with her somehow.

Steamed Sponge Cake

My dread feeling strike every time when I failed to control the oven temperature; it is such a disappointing moment seeing the cake turned dark that deterred me from frequent baking.

Therefore, I now prefer the simpler method - steaming. My two attempts with the recipe turned out quite satisfactorily…but maybe because I did not use cake flour, the texture was not that spongy. I would say it is like “Ma Lai Gao”.

Me and my family love it, and thank my friend Chui Lee for the recipe.
