When I moved to Canada, I was lucky that my mom in law taught me to cook some dishes. One of them being a soup – Pork shank with carrot and green radish soup, I know it as 青红萝汤 in Cantonese.

I find this particular soup quite easy to make, just need some time to prepare, and a “space pot” – 太空锅 , I mean a “Thermal Magic Cooker”. XD

I documented most of what I did when I prepared the soup this afternoon, must mention tsunamidelta for poking me for it in the first place — I hope this will help you out if/when you do try to make the soup! ^^

Had the pleasure to join in an early birthday bash of my friend bluestarbaby and it was at Torarenbo Japanese Restaurant ^^/

Husband and I had not ate there before, but we saw online many good reviews and praises as well as our friend’s recommendation, so was curious to see what it’s like :D

With my husband’s encouragement I got a set of SD gunpla to work on last week (when it’s not so hot lol)

Husband said I should pick the one I like the least to work on first in case of mistake… I picked Gogg as I’m not sure if I like his oddly long arms out of the three, but I must say this little fella grew on me after I snapped him together ^^;

A few years ago I tried some organic strawberries at Wholefoods supermarket in Vancouver, and was shocked/surprised that they were naturally sweet o_o!  The strawberries I ever had in Singapore are imported and are always very sour or tasteless ^^;

Since then I have been trying to catch the strawberry season — which is supposedly the main reason why the strawberries are sweet?  I should have trusted my nose when they don’t smell sweet ^^; Below is from the haul of today ^^; Unfortunately they’re not sweet… lol They look fantastic tho :P

I wonder if I missed the season again? ^^; I hope I am just too early (LOL)

A friend from Singapore was visiting and stayed with us for a little bit :) Thankfully the weather was very cooperative, and we had a nice time hanging out :D

Her stay was rather short so I was also trying to spend time catching up with her since I have not seen her in years!
