little sweet hearts








received a valentine's day chocolate basket from a dear friend 
with the silicone mold that comes with the basket,
we made little sweet treats together...

the whole process was very simple...
just melt the chocolate
spoon the melted chocolate into each mold
add any fillings to your fancy
cover with more chocolate....

wait overnight...
done!

for this first batch,
we added mini marshmallow....
then wrapped each one with wax paper...
done!

am thinking of crushed graham cookies with marshmallow (s'mores!!!)
or
chopped candied orange 
as fillings for our next batch...

bitter sweet indulgence






candied orange peel

orangettes

some for myself

some as little chinese new year gifts

the color is not too appetizing as i have used brown sugar instead of white this round.
supposedly to be a little bit healthier and less sweet.

yummy....

the ferris wheel






































that saturday,
was a great one.

in the morning, we celebrated didi's 6th birthday.
we re-grouped for dinner to continue with the celebration.

the fun didn't end when dinner was over.
we walked over to where the ferris wheel was and took the ride.

the kids were thrilled at the height and how small everything looked from up there...
they counted the number of turns we had and were very excited when the 5th turn came....

the night was ended with somotu "showing off" his new toy.....
didi did a great job with his first trial!

the carnival ...3





this super giant slide, honestly speaking, looks quite scary....
the slide itself goes round the light tower lookalike and is quite narrow....

to ride it, you will need to first grab a mat (for sitting on it to slide),
walk up the spiral staircase to the top...
then zoom you do down...............

we didn't really think he would dare to go for this slide...
so we asked...  thinking he would say no.
but no, he said yes right away...

as he wished, he went for it by himself.

watching him grabbed one of the mats,
he slowly walked on the stairs... without looking back...

staying on the ground,
we couldn't tell his position inside the tower...  no sound at all...

before we knew it,
some one at the back said, "hey the little boy is getting ready to slide down"....
within seconds, he landed in front of us...

i didn't even get a chance to take a video of it....
*laugh*

we asked him what was it like inside and how did he feel...
"a bit scared when i was alone inside the tower" he said!
*laugh*
