When You’re Gone… Pt1

for everyone who is wondering

why for so long i never blog about anything

but Stephelle Kitchen

hello, i am back

 

i am pretty busy

working on KR Rag

from 2pm to 7am everyday

including Sunday

 

therefore i don’t have time

to do anything else,

just for cooking and blogging

on average, i sleep for 2 hours everyday

 

actually i was supposed to stay in this room

till 2nd Aug and move to PGP,

(another hostel)

 

but today something happened

i was supposed to empty my room

because the next tenant had checked in

 

i didn’t explode

because ultimately, sooner or later

i have to move house, why not earlier now

 

secondly, i had just received a call from

Create Talents,

a scheduled interview for me tomorrow

 

started to move at 12 a.m

but napped all the way

till almost 2am

 

obviously, this is not the right timing to move

especially when i just did painting

most of the things i touch

get some taste of the choc syrup

ew... even my Seiko is tainted and guess what.. it's real thick paints 

i was so efficient that

i managed to move everything

within 1 .30 hr

without trolley

everything was nicely packed

 

except my clothes

all in a trash bag

omg

my MNG, Topshop, Benetton, Nike and all

in a trash bag

 

the water dispenser in our pantry

was leaking

obviously, saddened by my departure

 

my room on 17.07.08

our corridor my room  i like this feel the most i have spent almost a year on this bed the blinds

 

after i emptied everything

final clearance.. my letterboxyeah.. i am readyP7212305

 

where am i heading?

camping at Recreation Room, the Rag Office

my properties are all here got a mini corner for myself it's in between an office table and the sewing corner my living room cum bed whole view of my suite private corner food stash vanity chest i got loads bags huh

 

this place is not so bad after all

  1. air-conditioned
  2. fridge
  3. lots of power plugs
  4. sofa
  5. tv
  6. near to toilet & water dispenser
  7. distant away from my work place

 

so basically this is a studio apartment

but no bathroom

i will still shower at D block

my toiletries are will Siao Chuen

my printer, MR. Sam too

and some other stuffs

thanks a lot

 

kept thinking of these two songs

我來自一個充滿灰色的地球 身上沒帶什麼的感覺好輕鬆
我聽說這裡是個美好的星球 充滿著色彩陽光溫暖的氣候
我想嘗試去探索 這個全新的感受
跟帶給我痛苦的人揮揮手 我告別了他們所有 跟那世界
say goodbye say goodbye say goodbye
我不回頭一步一步往前走 我找回了我的自由 對這世界
say hello say hello say hello

當你離開的時候 / 蔡健雅

作詞:蔡健雅

作曲:蔡健雅

 

只能低著頭發呆 讓回憶滲透腦袋 漸漸變空白
把他當作個意外 但內心還想不開 因為我明白
其實你都還在

 

我想起了遇見你的時候 想起你眼神中的溫柔
我想起了我們第一次牽手 我閉上眼
想起當時你懷裡的顫抖 似乎那麼害怕失去我
然而 到後來我什麼都沒有 當你離開的時候

 

我可以裝作已釋懷 他對我也算關懷 他看不出來
我知道這樣不應該 在他身上找依賴 算不算是種出賣
因為你一直在

 

我想起了遇見你的時候 想起你眼神中的溫柔
我想起了我們第一次牽手 我閉上眼
想起當時你懷裡的顫抖 似乎那麼害怕失去我
然而到後來我什麼都沒有 當你離開的時候

 

我想起你親吻我的時候 想起你眼神中的沉默
我想起了我們平靜的分手 我閉上眼
想起當時你美麗的承諾 把你整個心都交給我
然而到後來我什麼都沒有 越是沒有你 越是心痛

 

我想起了遇見你的時候 想起你眼神中的溫柔
我想起了我們第一次牽手 我閉上眼
想起當時你懷裡的顫抖 似乎那麼害怕失去我
然而到後來我什麼都沒有 當你離開的時候

Stephelle Kitchen – Pumpkin Rice? Rice Pumpkin?

i have been wondering

how to cook my pumpkin

after consulting my mom on Sunday

(the only chance to communicate now)

finally came out with idea…

 

ingredients

  1. unprocessed pumpkin 300 mg
  2. rice 80g
  3. carrot
  4. seasoning

action time

  1. steam the rice till it’s half cooked
  2. add the seasoning
  3. pour in the sliced pumpkin and carrot

skin the pumpkinshredded pumpkin, in 3 designsit's more like a rice pumpkin, rather than pumpkin rice

 

the 2nd serving at night

the rice and vegie are not in proportion

too much of vegie, too little rice

 

gave some to my neighbour, Small Boat

it’s edible at least

wow!!! the lighter shade is baby carrot 

conclusion

brightness

sweetness

warmness

homeliness

back to the days I didn't know how to use Macro mode

Stephelle Kitchen - Weekend Retreat

Project #1: Whollie Greenie BeanieWholy Green Bean

been hearing about ideas of

effective bean cooking

finally this post is out on 943’s blog

so decided to follow the method

steamed the green bean

superb…

it’s well-cooked

the bean is intact

and no hassle in washing Ms. Elle

 

Project #2: Yogurt Palette

Yogurt Palettebreakfast is always inspiring to

generate wonderful idea

especially on weekend

yogurt palette consisting of

oat, apple, whomeal bread

simple, soothing taste

yet it’s filling

reminded me much of

my ideal afternoon tea

 

Project #3: SeaweeveeSeaweed BeeHoon

just like the green bean

i steamed my vermicelli too

along with some seaweed

just “Keep Warm” mode

and it’s ready

there’s no need to

catch all the swimming, slippery vermicelli

 

Project 4 St. Wichoreo

Oreo Sandwich light dinner

yet supper is Nasi Briyani

sounded not right at all

nevermind, it’s okay

it’s weekend retreat

anything is possible

Stephelle Kitchen – Stephelle Set Lunches

tried out with

my first ever Stephelle set lunch

Muschilli Soup & Rice

it’s very very warm

the soup

mushi + brocolli muschilli soup & rice 

VegeVermicelli

the bee hoon is so easy to cook

Ms. Elle used “Keep Warm” mode only

then there

the bee hoon was ready to be served

 

now only i know

one piece is for one serving

so the bee hoon lasted me till dinner

Vermicelli and Vegiessoothing smooth

Vegie Beanie

I don’t know what is this thing called

it’s call taoziam in Hokkien

roughly means.. bean sticks

bean sticks

 

instead of throwing everything in

i steamed the vegie instead

to retain the freshness

and i ate the carrot with its skin

main ingredients

 

after googled the nutrient value

it’s better not to overcook vegie

and best to eat vegie with the skin

but not sweet potato of course

P7091991

 

four vegie for a meal

it really makes me feel good   steamed carrot and brocolli 

coming up next

vegie porridge

全食物營養 Whole Food Nutrients

衛生署委託台灣營養學會修訂的「每日飲食指南」草案,

強調原態食物攝取,

全穀取代五穀,每

日應包含一份堅果與種子類,

低脂食物及蔬果類。

 

近年來極力推廣「全食物」飲食觀念的陳月卿指出,

新版指南符合全食物營養理念,

較貼近現代人飲食需要。

 

新版飲食指南六大類食物為:

  1. 全穀根莖類
  2. 豆魚肉蛋類
  3. 蔬菜類
  4. 水果類
  5. 低脂奶類及油脂
  6. 堅果種子類

 

陳月卿表示指出我們要「吃食物不吃加工食品」,

要吃全食物的全穀類(雜糧),

而非白米、麵粉類;

另外應多素少暈,比例約為8比2。

還有,油炸及烤、煎食物應避免,

食物處理以水煮及燙、蒸為主。

 

 

她也鼓勵多吃生機飲食,

以生菜及有機食物做為主要營養來源,

可打成精力湯,吃進所有的營養及纖維素。

精力湯的內容,可以有水果加蔬菜及堅果,

依個人喜好每天加減樣及變換,

例如蘋果、蕃茄、奇異果、胡蘿蔔、小黃瓜、

美生菜、芽菜、葡萄、藍莓、梨子、

西洋芹、苦瓜等,都是可以利用的種類。

 

陳月卿表示,樂活飲食的原則其實不會多花錢,

把握當季當地盛產、

全食物飲食、穀類菜食及彩虹飲食(多種顏色),

可以吃得好又健康。

 

全食物再發現全食物密碼

Experience India! Shopping Marathon

Guide to A Pleasant Shopping Experience

(1) pack light

ample luggage space 10.25

 

(2) keep your money at different places to avoid excessive spending

Kotex loaded with USD

 

(3) spare bag to carry your shopping loot back.  I had forgotten about this.  Ended up carrying my stuffs in plastic bag.  This is quite risky because i don’t know when will the bag break, or i may just forget to take the bag along.

 

(4) hire a personal shopping assistant

my PSA, personal shopping assistant he is not machine...

or a big bag allowing us to throw our items inloaded with girls' loots

My Treasures

can be classified into 4 categories

  • Fashionable stuffs
  • Indian flava
  • Souvenirs
  • Just for fun

 

(1) fashionable stuffs

i bought this pair of shoes

because i am just thrilled by white sneaker

my Adidas Superstar is retiring soon

and i am not satisfied with

an ordinary pair of Stan Smith

 

the bargain for this

is buy 1 free 1

Kenneth was trying out some shoes

hoping we can share the bill

 

unfortunately he couldn’t find any

so i was forced to give up the shoes

but when i was paying for the two tops

the salesperson offered to

sell it to me

at 50% discount

 

however SGD 100

is still not a very cheap price

to pay for a pair of sneakers

 

but then only i discovered

this is actually a pair of golf shoes

so cool

it’s worth the money i paid

puma jetsetter white sneakers vs dark legs

 

Puma top that doesn’t look too Puma

more like MNG

that’s what i am looking for nowadaysviolet Puma top the sexy back

 

never own any sporty spag top like this

SGD 10 is quite reasonable i guessOrange Puma Spag an Indian word printed on there.. Mahasumtin

 

celebrate the color

i was attacted by the colorful top

but it is supposed to be a girl dress

but i managed to fit in

rainbow top

 

these are actually from a guy

vending the clothes

by carrying it around the street

jacket

 

this is either a long skirt

or a tube dress

it’s pretty angelic

but not if it’s worn on me

P6211035

 

hand made stuffs are always coolsoaked and washed.. prevent discolourization

 

a Nike watch i got at B’lore airport

for 50% discount

i was always looking for a sporty watch

can’t expect me to wear Seiko or Titus

to go jogging

Nike digital watch, on our flight to Delhi

 

finally this one

and it’s black in color

doesn’t it look a bit O.D.M.?

p/s to the guy who criticized i am wasting my money away

please compare and contrast the watches properlyMr. Chong's Giant

 

(2) Indian flava stuffs

wooden handdrawn bangles necklaces.. anklet.. wristlet... as you like it wat cha flava 4 dozens of thin bangles Punjabi suit the whole set: top, scarf, Aladdin pants shoes collection flora.. Anna like beige.. retro checkered typical Indian from Rajasthan ethnic print skirt peacock hairclips

 

(3) souvenirs

i like the house portrayed on this rug

the color combination is good too

somehow i sacrificed it

gave it to my uncle

because in my dad’s eye

this is not a collectible

it’s just any other souvenir

handsewn "Homecoming" 

a pair of peacock motif mini plate

it reminds me of the pair of peacock lamp

we have at home

i think they will be perfect match

bronze peacock platesthe prints are duo-sided

 

this is a hand-drawn elephant drawing

we were quite amazed by those

fine drawing similar to this

we saw else where

but they are way too expensive

 

i think finally Kenneth and Jia Loon

bought those fine drawing

ok lo, didn’t jio me

 

i brought this to Daiso

bought a frame

and presented it as a gift

to my rag teamP6261375

 

somehow dad is always looking for

a bronze horn

at flea market

so i got him this

but i got the feeling that

he will still get one of the

hand-pressing horn

bronze blowing horn

 

Siao B will always laugh

when i blow it

but her daddy said that

we shouldn’t blow it anymore

it will injure her ears

okies…

 

animal prints

can print my own shirt

or they are just fine

to stand on the shelf as decorationsP6261373

 

my dad was thrilled by this pair of elephant

he put it on his collection shelf immediately

my original intention for this pair of elephant

was back-up souvenir

just in case i miss put any V.I.P.

marble elephant book stands cum paper stoppers

 

and the price offered was too great

to be turned down

but the weight was something to be considered

and on my way back

i kept thinking of my dear elephants

whether they will break

 

luckily they were not hurt

otherwise i would be heartbroken

for being cheated

 

at first

i didn’t feel like buying

who would want to carry such heavy marbles

i casually asked him whether he had got

peacock print one

gosh, he managed to take one out

and they are so cute

 

since dad always complains that

we are spoiling his tables

by putting hot drinks on them

this is an ideal home improvement item

 

i have to admit that

i am a vain girl

peacock always attracts memarble peacock cup coaster she is so adorable

 

free gift from the shop

somehow i like the photos of Lord Krishna

hanging out with his GFs

may i be blessed

for …………………..

Lord and Lady of Love

 

(4) just for fun

Siao B likes to play with them

that day Min Wey and Teck Thye

were playing air ping pong

using these bats toomini baseball bats from Reebok

 

my lovely ferris wheel

look out for more photos

featuring it

coming up very soon

gosh, i haven’t named it yet

my ferris wheel

 

SIao B said this is a

noodle-making machine

……. swt

 

got this at the airport

how can i miss out M&M

whenever i am at an airport

M&M's Mr. Yellow clock

 

left it on the bus on my way

back to Melaka

waited for 2 hours

since the driver had gone for his lunch break

 

but so grateful that i found him back

that’s why this clock is precious, isn’t it?

 

i left it on my dad’s writing table

so that he can think of me

whenever he is working

 

Cases of Shopping Failure along the Journey

 

(1) Shrek from Macs… run out of stock 

envious of Kenneth who got the Hippo

Happy Meal Disney toy collections 

(2) Mango trees

innocently thought that i can transport some

Indian mango back to plant at backyard

go give it to my grandpa or uncle

basically our family enjoy planting mango trees

mango plants

 

the gardener kindly bought them for me

but they are so huge

forget bout it

left them at the hostel

 

(3) Reebok legging

i never own any legging

i fell in love with this pair of Reebok legging

it was purple stripes

with a mini skirt

 

my desire to own it heightened

when the dance instructor

who taught us Bollywood dance

was wearing something similar

 

but can’t find it at other Reebok outlet

 

(4) M&M figures

i like this

but it’s a bit ex

so gave up the idea

but i am happy

with the mr. Yellow alarm clock

the price is half of this

i want all of them!!!

 

(5) Vodafone sim card

it died out after a few days

stating that we failed to provide the address

there was still some credit in it

and the good thing about this sim card is

i couldn’t call sg number, but msian one worked

i could send smses to both countries,

but couldn’t receive smses from both

 

the packaging is nice

perhaps designed in UK

but the service provided

is still Indian standard

no choice

Vodafone campus pack
