Cabbage and Pork gyoza

My husband and I love gyozas, and sometimes have cravings to eat it, the ones we purchased often taste like they have a lot of MSG in it, so after I learnt how to make it, I decided to make my own version of the fillings :)

I made gyoza skin/wrappers from this youtube tutorial by ochikeron.

The fillings for the gyoza I made this time are cabbage, carrot, minced garlic, shallot, salt (to draw out the moisture) and pepper. I will be readjusting the amount to see if more vegetables would work out.

I used the food processor we got last year to grind the pork, I used 2 pieces of pork chop loin (I think?) I may reduce the amount of meat and see if it works, as husband remarked that more vegetable will be better. Read more


I biked out on Strida Mini to run an errand yesterday, but the star of the show is ducklings!

We’re extremely tempted to take this adorable tabby kitten home :P

Autumn bunny finding

I noticed that there are bunnies out and about these days, the weather and temperature seems to be suitable for them I guess :) And guess what I think we might have come across the bunny which induced a lot of “AWWWWWWW” when it was a bebe!!!! I embedded the video below the photo ;3 Video was uploaded in March 12, 2009

Cat show

Checked out a cat show with husband over the weekend, kinda a last minute decision to go as the traffic around the area on the day before was HORRIBLE! ^^; We got stuck in the traffic for almost more than an hour when we were trying to run some errands ^^;

Richmond Olympic Oval

Chanced upon the near completed Richmond Olympic Oval in the middle of some errands not long ago, but didn’t have time to look thru pix until now. ^^; While I personally think it’s not as cool as the life size Odaiba Gundam — by the way loads more pix/links at, husband and I were quite impressed by our quick visit with how  it looks so far ^^!
