It was a Martha Steward recipe for no-bake cheesecake, but everything started melting when I took it out of the fridge. I put it back in the freezer, and now it's like half ice-cream, half cake. I need to relook at that recipe! Watch this space. The crust was delicious though.
Back to the kids. Angelica was a mermaid, and Lauren was the prima donna, I mean, ballerina. Same difference.
So, that was Halloween weekend.
Today, we got a fresh batch of pearl corn from Cameron Highlands, thanks to my friend V. Thank you, V! The girls love this corn. The perfect rows of corn kernels remind me of cartoons that I used to watch, where the characters would eat the corn like you type on a typewriter. Right? Right? Ahh...nostalgia.
Last week, it was pointed out to me that when you have two girls, they are usually polar opposites. Wise words from my friend B. I've always known my girls are different, but total opposites? No way!
After work today, I sent them out to the front porch to play, in my constant effort to reduce their screen time. Angelica grabbed her origami paper and started practising her newfound hobby, which I just taught her, cutting patterns in folded paper. (I think there's a name for this, so please enlighten me.) Lauren made a beeline for the weeds in the garden and started gathering her "treasure". And of course when Mr Putu Mayam came tutting, she looked longingly after him through the gate. Angelica didn't even bat an eyelid.
Total opposites? You think?
