A Surprise Visitor!

I just had an adorable surprise visitor, lovely and gorgeous Mishu. She is now in Kuala Lumpur spending her vacation over the Chinese New Year with her mummy, aunt, grannie and family. Mishu is incredible friendly, speaks mandarin and I end up being the “Big Koko (brother)”. I caught a photo of Mishu through my lense, the little princess!


Lovely cookie cutters and stencils from mummy Mishu! So lovely, we love it, something that we can use this Valentine’s Day. And we got our cupcake holder too!




Today, Mango Moussecake is something that I would like to introduce to you. It may not be new and maybe common but I really adore them as it is creamy, fragrant and juicy! In Malaysia we have various type of mangoes and plentyful too. So I had this baked over the weekday.
