Out n About (3) 7th-9th of Sept

Whilst I waited for my bf to arrive.. sipped a delicious mocktail from the Schweppes drink stand.
So deliciously refreshing!! It sang summer! ^___^!!

Gloria Jeans!! The one we go to.. the staff are sooo adorable!! >W<
 So friendly!! Its overwhelming!! And the mochas are made to perfection! :3
 mmm White chocolate mocha is my current fave! :3

yummmmers! ;P 

After my failed attempt at making pan fried herb crusted chicken (dont worry niether of us got food poisoning.. just presentation wise.. A MESS! ><  )
I finally made some pancakes for him!! Originally wanted to make them on Saturday morning..
But .. he was being very cheeky and I didn't get to make some >< :P tmi?? ;ppp 
And gosh he's so picky with the toppings .. he wanted Pineapple jam (it had to a particular brand mind you!)
And I didn't get a chance to buy some...  =.=

Me:"Here you go" bf: "What's on it?" Me: "Nothing.. just pancakes.."
bf: "Spread some butter with a even sprinkle of sugar" 
... -.-' 
This was the guy who didn't want anything on his pancakes
 after I told him I didn't bring any jam.-.-
<3 :3

went a tad crazy towards the end.... ;pp 

FINALLY WE BOTH TRIED TEH  TARIK!!! (malaysian pull tea)
SO DELICIOUS! We ordered the hot tea.. But next time I want to order the cold tea! 

 But yeah... so yummy.. My bf was very impressed.. definately going there again!! :D
Store bought pasta salad... was pretty delicious.. as you can see..
And like 2 hours before we had to leave the apartment.. (he had to fly back.. -.-)
I quickly whipped up an omelette!
I KNOW! It looks horrific... but it was very yummy! :3 
Yeah I need to cook more often! -.-' 

Anyways... ahh must have bored you to death with my rambles...;p

take care,

Kiwi And Blueberry Bliss!! ;)

Oh. My.God  Best juice I've ever made! Juicing has been something I've been wanting to do! And it's the first time I made juice without turning into a smoothie by adding dairy. Early spring cleaning the body! So proud of myself! :P :D

Strawberry Coconut Loaves

The recipe makes 8 small loaves. I just made one big loaf! It's really up to you. Also you can experiment and use different fruit! The skies the limit! :P Oh another thing.. you can use greek yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt. 

Strawberry coconut loaves (courtesy of Better Home and Gardens Aus)

Melted butter  for greasing
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup light olive oil
200g vanilla yogurt
1 punnet of strawberries, washed, hulled
1/4 demerara sugar

1 Preheat oven to 180C. Brush an 8 hole non-stick mini loaf tin with butter. Sift flour into a bowl, then stir in coconut. Beat eggs and sugar in a separate bowl until pale and creamy. Add oil  and whisk until combined. Make a well in centre of the dry ingredients and pour in egg mixture. Add yoghurt and stir with a wooden spoon until combined and smooth.

2 Thinly slice half the strawberries and set aside. Chop remaining strawberries, add to mixture and stir until combined. Spoon mixture and stir until combined. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared loaf-tin holes.

3 Top mixture in each hole evenly with strawberry slices, then sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake for 30mins or until loaves are cooked when tested with a skewer. Stand for 15 mins before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

Just what I need after a crazy weekend! (it would've been even crazier if I (1) Didn't have strict ass parents and (2) My boyfriend had joined in the booze dept (he had a crazy night with his mates on that Friday so he didn't have a sip of the devils drink! Such a good boy; being in control! .. Sometimes.. :P
Anyhoots enough of the excess rambles... So my darling of a boyfriend bought me a delicious chicken and leek pie (MMM TWAS DEELISH! :PP) and a glorious cup of lentil soup.. darn forgot the exact name! But yes.. it was such a lovely treat especially after a tiresome day. Ohh yummy! Grr this is all making me very hungry! Must go to beddd!!
