Indoor Herb Garden - Progress report

Look at my herb garden! Looking all good and healthy. For now, I am still waiting for the basil, coriander and chives to sprout - aahh cannot wait!


Weekend Projects

Doing other stuffs apart from drafting my review paper is, sadly fun and therapeutic. It is easier to get lost in time making something good in the kitchen rather than sitting in front of my laptop for hours until my eyes go all dry. Is it just me or have I broken the first rule of being a research student?

Anyhow, this weekends I certainly cannot pass myself not to make/bake/cook something that I have already pinned in my Pinterest or Pocket. So I started off going all crazy in making the tau fu fa which I had been craving since last year. Little did I know, the shortcut version of making the tau fu fa is actually shortcut enough and cannot get any simpler than stirring in 1 tsp of gelatine for every 300mL of soy milk. Or if you are using agar-agar powder, try mixing 1/4 tsp of the agar-agar powder for every 300mL of the soy milk. "Easy, peasy, Japanese-y" right? - as according to Iris. 

So yeah, go on try it! Oh and if possible try using homemade soy milk or if you are like so beyond the valley of laziness, you can use the store-bought ones instead (I tried mine using the organic soy milk). All in all, I am so happy with the outcome of my tau fu fa and had been making it like more than 4 times within the span of 48 hours. Crazy, isn't it?


Oh, oh, and I also baked banana and zucchini muffin for my lunch just now. Result: super good, moist, not to sweet and the rest is just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Will definitely make it again with more zucchini bits in it. Till then, take care xx
