23rd Of August. Breakfast At Tiff..Heaven.

TADAAA hehehehe 
I ate it through my DSLR :P hahahaha.. 
Once I calmed myself a bit managed to have some of this stunning,powerful concoction.  How pretty is it? 
My handsome enjoying lunch at 'Touche Hombre'; you out did yourself Mr!!  :')

.... I was oblivious. Totally oblivious. There I was thinking it was a birthday brunch for my beautiful other half...... only to find out that.. *speechless* The photos speak for themselves! haha  I am still struggling to put my words together... I was shaking,I could barely eat any of that cake (dw I had some when I got home and it was just yummy! :3). I was just in utter shock. I mind just couldn't process what was happening. Surrounded by our friends... it was just beautiful.. (so underrated) I can't thank them enough for taking part of this momentous occasion. Truly grateful! Much love.

Look out for more posts... (loads of catch up posts also) of my many wonderful food adventures before and after this wonderful moment.

  Take care,


Bread Pudding

Such a easy dessert to make;great way to use left over stale bread. Here's the recipe I used.


6 slices day-old bread ( I used raisin bread; just whatever stale bread you have laying about)
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup of raisins (Optional)
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
3/4 cup white sugar (personally prefer using brown sugar)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped

My mother queen's 50th! (Bring on the long weekend devoted to eating)

Last Friday was mother owl's 50th birthday!! (If you didn't figure it out from the photos! :P) So we had to do something for her!! But instead of the typical huge birthday party many people organise; decided to just spend it with the family;just how we like it! And conveniently fell on the Queen's birthday long weekend!!!!! Meaning devoting the whole weekend  :P It sure was manic in the kitchen; trying to prepare dinner before mum came back from a appointment. 1.5 hours to prepare dinner. GAH. Anyway long story short.... it all worked out in the end and my brother and I managed to surprise her (to some degree :P). All that effort sure paid off!

Minus the roast chicken (thank you dad for bringing home take away for the sake of mum not finding out about the dinner AND so I had some extra little time to cook!) :P  I cooked and prepared it all! :3 Being such a slow cook; I was proud of what I managed to get on the table in such a short time! :3

(Will post recipes soon! and photos of what else we got up to that weekend!)

...Happy Birthday Mum

Faluda and friends

Faluda/Falooda.. how ever you spell it/say it.. those you have had this drink know what it is! A perfect summer beverage; so refreshing and filling. And not to mention how pretty it is!!! :O There's something so pretty about those casa casa seeds (basil seeds) floating on top of a beautiful sea of pink and hints of glistening green from the jelly. It just cheers me up and takes me back to sunny Sri Lanka and the various drinks that were whipped up at family functions.

So about two weeks ago I got hold of the necessary ingredients needed for this drink; waiting for the perfect opportunity to make it. Then one Sunday I decided to invite my primary school best friend (such a sweetheart she is!!!) over for a yummy Sinhalese lunch (the original plan was to go out shopping but the scent of my mums cooking just tantalised her taste buds.. I definitely had to invite her to try our food instead! :D) And of course this drink came to mind; and she truly deserved
it! The funny part was that she too already knew about the drink (because in Mauritius they make it as well! And they call it 'alouda' :O

So whilst sipping this refreshing drink out in sunshine; we refreshed on good times and our plans for the future (and planning a possible trip to Mauritius in the near future!) :D

 (I love you so much sis!! Can't wait to taste the lovely dishes Mauritius has to offer! )
