Another Parent's Day

I've made these chocolate brownies for another parent's day
celebration dinner.

I was informed by them these brownies will given to everyone
especially for the parents who have attend to this function. They
were requested me to pack the brownies into a nice small gift boxes.

Since this is a charity work and have to save the cost, I've decided
and sponsor these gold and silver small boxes for their celebration.

When I'm packing this, I've think of my dad, did he blame to me
or unhappy because I not celebrate this father's day with him?
Anyway, I hope all the parents who were attended to this dinner
will have a happy and lovely night.

Konbu and Chicken Feet Soup

Konbu (海带) is a type of seaweed found in cold waters. A large
seaweed plants belonging and classified to the brown algae and
in the order of laminaria.

I was understood that konbu contains iodine. Over consumption
of iodine, can cause hypertrophy of thyroid gland, this can slow
body growth and development. I was started to taken this in 7
years ago when I got the disease of thyroid gland.

Konbu is used extensively in Japanese cuisines, but also important
in Chinese and Korean cuisine. It may be pickled with sweet and
sour flavoring as a snack.

Share this to all, who are interested:

1 sheet dry konbu/ seaweed
10 pairs chicken feet
5 slices fresh ginger

2.5 litter water
some salt to taste

1. Soaked the dry konbu in water for an hour. Clean with a brush
and rise with water.
2. Cut the cleaned konbu into thin slices and drained.
3. Boil the 2.5 litter water with ginger slicer about 10 minuets.
4. Add in the remaining ingredients and boil over low heat for 2
5. Add salt to taste.

Cake for Parent's Day

I get this order from my auntie Candy for her society, Parent's
Day Celebration Dinner.

This is a 2 tier chocolate sponge cake covered with butter cream.
The cake side with 2 strawberry gold fishes.

I've found that the cream was frosted on the cake is not smoother
and nicer. I also never done this type of occasion cake before,
maybe this was made me so nervous and pressure.

父亲之前有了一次的轻微中风. 当时他和弟弟在工作,就突然觉得

到脑细胞坏死;再出现的症状为半身不遂, 口眼歪曲, 手脚麻木等.
若不及时进行治疗, 后果则不堪设想.

从父亲的病例中,我们得到了一位中医师的教导和提示, 凡是有中
风现象的患者, 千万别移动其身体,一定要让他平躺着再深呼吸放
排出使血液畅通.如果患者的脑细胞没有坏死, 血管畅通后脑细

小时后, 可以起身活动了.当然这是我本身所经历过和所看到的
情形, 真正的急救方法还不了解.

fondant cake. She was mentioned to me the cake must comes
with a cartoon character and asked me to decided for her.

and challenge to me by my niece. Finally, I've started for this -
