Summer’s Barbie Doll

Summer’s newest toy is a dancing Barbie Doll.  It was a giveaway by a colleague of mine.  So I wrapped it in pink paper (Summer’s favorite color), and surprised my daughter.  I gave it to her when we were in the car, and told her to wait until we get home before she can open it.  So to divert her attention, I made her guess instead.  She said that it was a “Christmas tree”.  It made us laugh.  It was such a funny guess.  She just shrugged, when asked as why she thought it as such.

When we got home, she opened it, making “cartoonish” gestures and faces.  Those are her ways of showing her excitement.  It warms my heart to see her smile with delight.


Were you a Barbie Doll fanatic when you were young? Is your daughter enamored by Barbie dolls?





In my hand luggage I always have my camera,
iPod, make-up bag, tooth brush, cleansing products,
clean underwear, socks and a change of clothes in case
anything goes missing at the other end –
and of course my passport.

In my Jacob bag I always have my antique and durable Nokia cellphone.  
It has surpassed the wrath of both my daughter and son.
I have my wallet and coin purse.  I also have a booklet for my business.  
I keep all sort of bills.  It gives me security to know that everything has been paid.
I have vain travelling kit, all keys from the house to car.  I have thumb drives, soap, umbrella, comb, bankbooks, 
work permit, and passport.  I also bring with me my daughter’s Thai book.  I need to study as well.
Can you tell my personality now?

Jelly with a twist

Gratify your sweet tooth with this easy to make Jelly with a twist.

A fellow expat introduced this to me.  I loved it immediately.  It is not the usual jelly that we buy from the grocery.  It looks like maja-blangka, but it tastes like ice cream at the same time. I have attempted to bake, cook, or make sweets before.  I failed most of the time.  But this one, I nailed it! That’s according to my husband and he is super blatant about what he thinks of things.  So I was so happy.  I want to share this with you. I used Mr. Gulaman, which my sistah has sent via EMS.

Jelly with a twist


1 sachet of Mr.Gulaman (any flavor will do)

6 cups of coconut milk

2 cans of condensed milk



1. Put 6 cups of coconut milk in a pot.  Bring it to a boil in a low fire. Stirring constantly.

2.  Add in the condensed milk.  Heat the solution for another minute.

3.  Gradually pour in Mr. Gulaman. Continue to heat it until the solution has already thickened.

Nota Bene:

Make sure that you are using low fire all through out.  Constant stirring is essential to make sure that Mr. Gulaman is totally dissolved, and to make sure that the solution at the bottom part of the pot will not get burned.  Do not use the ready-packed coco milk from the grocery as they have preservatives although their ads say otherwise.  Go green! Help coconut farmers.  Buy grated, freshly squeezed coconut milk.

Here it is…. 


Treat your loved ones with this. And let me know what you think about the recipe.

I’ll Return Back Your LOVE
