Ok, i know this is a really backdated post, i better do now. Lately just too busy with work and also school homework and acitivities. :(
Remember i mention in my previous post, i said i rushing to another place for an activity for my boys after the casting? Two of them want to become a master chef for the day! I register them for the Marche holiday baking program, I missed the one year before. After i read Barb brought Ashley to her first cupcakes bake in the first week of December and i check with her, is Ashley going for another one, she said yes, she will go for another one on the last week which is buns making. Right away i told Barb to make booking for my two boys too, i want to let them try.
Tada!! Now...look at the three master chef for the day...Cruz, Ashley, Fearles.
After they put on their apron and hat, their "cikgu/teacher" lead all the master chefs to washroom to get their hand wash then only start their project.
firstly, the teacher taught them what to add in the flour... some yeast, egg, butter, then mix them up.
kids are looking carefully how the Main Chef knead the dough.
while wait for the dough to raise, they got one ready one, he cut it and divide to all the kids. Every kids get to get three dough.
Fearles got his share...
Cruz got his too....
After few knead and roll.....now time to add some raisins and chocolate chips..
one of the assistant come and help/teach how Fearles how to add the raisins inside and how to close it back.
Fearles enjoy baking!
this is Fearles's buns with neatly arrange chocolate chips on top.
look at this messy Cruz with all the raisins on top of the buns!!
After sent their buns to the oven, they are doing some coloring while waiting for the buns.
color pencils and art picture and a small cup of coke was served.
When the kids are busy with the coloring, what did the two mummies doing? Since the two daddies are going for some window shopping in the Mall. Me and Barb decide we had something to fill our stomach.
we order a baked potatoes for sharing.....
a slice of fruit cake, very yummy!!!
and Panna Cotta, my favourite dessert!! But this one so so only, nothing to shout about. :(
After 20-30 mins, the buns were ready......
we saw this on the table....strawberry jam ...
Fearles proudly showing his buns!!
Cruz said "nom nom nom" i want to eat it!!!
The buns smell really good and soft, especially freshly baked from the oven. Now, they need to squeeze some strawberry jam inside the buns, or you can dig a small hole on the bun on top to do do like donuts, any way you want.
poke a hole on the bun with the butter knife, then squeeze in the strawberry jam.
daddy help pumping the jam into the buns.....
Ashley with Barb's help...
Fearles want to try his own baked bun..he said Nice and Yummy!!!
Last but not least they got a cert for that!!
Cruz with his Cert..
Fearles with his cert and some free meal voucher..
and one with their "teacher" for the album!
I can see Fearles enjoy himself very much, he told me, he want to come again, he want to learn baking. hahahhahahhahha
And yes, we bring back 5 buns with us!!!! (one eaten by Fearles already)
outside the restaurant, three of them took a pictures together...
After spending two hours at Marche for the baking, then we continue with some window shopping at The Curve. It didn't end there, we even went for a 6pm movie, we are watching Trons and this is the first time the boys watch a 3D movie.
Show end at around 8.30pm, we had a quick bite at A & W, since all of us already dead tired, this is my first time spending almost 8 hours in a shopping mall!! A bad experience at A & W, i am not really like A & W, but hubs want to have their root beer, so we went. It was quite empty, not much patrons, only 5 -6 customers. At the counter, there was only a lady staff serving us and she is having a bad flu!! Maybe she is not well till the suppose smiley face we also can't see, we only can see a sour face. That doesn't matter, we just want to have a quick bite and go home. We order two kids meal for the boys, me and my hub had our meals, but the kids one took so long to prepare. When the Corney Hot Dog serve, it just a plain bun with hot dog inside, no sauce at all and it look so dry. I am so tired, i open the paper and just pass it to the boys, lucky hub is quick, he said he saw some black mildew (fungus) on the bun, ask me to check. I had a closer look, there was a small patch, when i turn the bun i saw another patch on the bun. I went back to the counter and told the girl. She apology and said will change another one for me. I should have took a picture of it, *big regret* :( It's a long day, i don't have anymore energy to make a scene. I think i will ban A & W for a while.
What a fruitful and tired day! ~ 27/12/2010
