Whipped up this simple salad for dinner recently, something light and refreshing after having a heavy lunch.  I  enjoyed it tremendously and look forward to concocting  more of  such one-dish meal in future.










Isn't it colourful?  Every mouthful of these crunchy vege with some protein is just wholesome, healthy and nutritious, more so if you're on a diet!

  16. Hi Cheah,

    You just reminded me of one of the most delicious salad!! This is my favourite summer salad because it is so light and tasty. I add julienne celery, sesame oil, chilli oil and crunchy jelly fish and loads of roasted sesame seed and fresh coriander leaves to the one I make. Oh, I can taste summer though we heading into winter here in Sydney :(

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
