HOMECOOK : CHILDREN LUNCHBOX

These are the morning add ons! Yes, after a long discussion (in fact since last year) we decided to stop paying for the school catering food and that means they have to buy their own food during the break time or the other option is bring from home. Well, obviously they would choose the latter one.

I don't need to wake up extra early to prepare the food since I still have ample of time to do the cooking after my dad comes to fetch them. I will drop off the lunch bags at the designated area where parents can put the children's food so they can pick up during their break time. (of course I have to put a tag with their names as big and visible as possible) It is easy for me since I will pass by the school every day. Yea, it is the same way heading to my office.

1. Fried noodles with eggs

2. Hashbrown (their favorites and don't mind eating it every day).

3. Fried rice. I cook more rice and the left over can be used for the next morning. This is the easiest and fastest recipe. Just need to add some meat and eggs. No fancy or artistic bento box though since I never good in it.

Yeah, you will not find any greens inside their lunch box. That shows how afraid of them to see vegetables. Nevertheless, the only way I can incorporate the nutrients from vegetables is by cooking soup.

I do keep a portion for myself too especially when there is lot of left over from the night before. Just heat up and pluck some greens from my garden. Very obvious, this lunch box is mine.

I think kids nowadays are so fortunate ehh..unlike our 'zaman', if I tell my mom I want to bring food to school, she will ask my dad to buy a loaf of bread with a can of kaya. Yup, kaya sapu roti! That's my 'zaman' lunch box.Haha

Double Fromage Cheesecake at LeTao Pathos Cafe, Otaru

I have read much hype about the double fromage cheesecake by leTAO and not hesitate to add into 'must eat' list during our trip to Hokkaido. When we stepped down in the New Chitose airport, I can spot leTAO at every single corner, retailing and offering sample of their signature cheesecake.**sweat* We did try it though.

Did not buy it immediately. In fact, I waited patiently for our day trip to Otaru. Oh well.... I want to 'makan' at their specialty cafe.

That how it is packaged if you wish to purchase their double fromage cheesecake back to your homeland. It is meticulously stored in a wooden box.

Cheesecake! And more cheesecake.

To be honest, I am more keen to proceed up to the second floor (the cafe) and make my order.

Greeted by a tall croquembouche!

After going through the menu, we have decided on their famous trio signatures. It also comes with a drink, choice of tea/coffee or a glass of juice.

Double Plate with a Drink - ¥1,404

Double Fromage which is the masterpiece of leTAO. Italian mascarpone cheese,camembert produced in Hokkaido and cream cheese are the finest and key ingredients use to craft this sumptuous dessert. The upper layer is formed by creamy smooth no-bake cheesecake, and the bottom layer is rich, tasty baked cheesecake which instantly melt in your mouth.

Chocolat Double - I thought this one stood out the most. The bitterness from the fine cocoa and chocolate crumbs used to blend with the rich and milky cream cheese delivers a fine concoction of sweetness for the palate. I devour it!

Venezia Rendezvous - Mascarpone crème brulee which is another simple yet elegant dessert that one should pick up. The crust is light, delicate and crispy. It makes the rich cream stood out. When I mentioned rich, it means the cream that leTAO used contains 42% milk fat made in Hokkaido. Now you know why Hokkaido is one of the best places to enjoy their dairy produce..

I always trusted the photos displayed or printed in the menu when we were in Japan. You get what you see! No misleading ad unless it is specified! This is the exact same millefeuille I saw in their menu earlier.Another reason to love Japan..ahaha

Strawberry Millefeuille with a drink -  ¥1,816

You have to capture the ecstatic moment when such a beautiful dessert appeared in front of you.

Taste wise? Ahhahah...not so ecstatic though. The vanilla custard not as smooth and light as expected. The puff pastry was slightly over done. It was a tad heavy but the flakiness is there. Nevertheless, the fresh and vibrant fruits make it happened. I guess I have set the bar high after I had the best millefeuille in a two michelin stars restaurant in France.

Thank you for spoiling me with the eye candy and delicious desserts. I thought my dessert selection cost a bomb!

le chocolat, the chocolate specialty store.

leTAO main store is located at The Amiable Tower of Otaru. It is situated at the end of the Sakaimachi street. I should have come here instead, nevertheless, I think is more a less the same.

Pocky Midi x Gudetama - Caramel Latte

Oh well, it is SNACK TIME! Today, I am munching this. Very obvious I gotten it because Gudetama is featured.

It is another new flavour I found at Okashi World and grabbed one to try. RM11.50/box.


The stick is coated with thick latte cream and once you bite into the stick you can taste the coffee flavour.

It definitely wakes you up...Hahah

NICKELODEON'S TMNT REUNITES - TRANS-DIMENSIONAL TURTLES

What's your reaction when you are send back to the past and meet back your counterparts? Flabbergasted, perhaps? Well, that's exactly what happen to the Turtles when they are transported to another dimension where they meet their '80s alternate- reality comrades!

To make it even more nostalgic, it has to be the original voice actors. The voice cast of the 1980s Turtles, Cam Clarke, Rob Paulsen, Barry Gordon and Townsend Coleman joins focres as Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo, respectively, in "Trans-Dimensional Turtles," a brand new episode of Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles airing only on Nickelodeon Asia at Channel 612 on Friday, 29April at 6pm (MY).

I manage to take a glimpse of the first look at the episode and I have to say it has bring back some childhood memories when I used to watch this cartoon with my brothers. I always enjoy the witty part of the Turtles and as usual those funny scenes are still as witty as they are. I still remember how they order the pizza (that's when I first get to know pizza..heheh), at times the pizza end up as a weapon during their ridiculous fight.

Now, who said girls cannot watch and play with Turtles..

Unbox the TMNT minifigure...Oh it's Raph with it's skating board.

Time to assemble the skating board.

It's done! #booyabunga 

Let's PLAY!

Do you still remember their epic catchphrase? Which one is your favorite?

Don't forget to catch the “Trans-Dimensional Turtles” airs on Nickelodeon on Friday, April 29, at 6.00pm (MY)

COWABUNGA!
