月饼竟然可以做成这样!

12 Sep

中秋节快乐!

image.jpeg

上星期六在家办了一个中秋趴,拿出一盒朋友送的纯榴莲冰皮月饼,直接惊艳四座一扫而空!话说我也不曾吃过这么好吃的榴莲月饼呐~

image

总觉得今年榴莲季榴莲开得特别好,就连平时不怎么爱吃榴莲的我都为之动容呢~

今天就为大家介绍100%纯榴莲月饼!

image

我很喜欢冰皮月饼,喜欢那种咬下去软软QQ的口感。第一切开的是猫山王榴莲(当然要从最好的开始吃是吧!)

image.jpeg

粉红紫色的冰皮是甜菜根做成的。

image

切开的瞬间,榴莲芬芳的扑鼻溢出。果然是纯榴莲制造!

image.jpeg

冰皮很软很Q,馅料是100%纯猫山王。太匪夷所思了!

image.jpeg

真的很美味呢!关键是,必须在解冻后5分钟才切开享用。因为这样的话,冰皮吃起来是软的,榴莲也不会硬邦邦的。记得不要等太久哦,否则榴莲果肉会变软,不易切开。

一口咬下去果然香气扑鼻,口感醇厚。平时不爱榴莲的我也觉得异常美味!

摄影师在一旁一直逗我,让我也给他尝一尝。

image

接下来继续切开绿色的抹茶D101榴莲月饼。

image

此时整个房间已经弥漫着榴莲的芳香…

一边切月饼我就一边在想,榴莲的颜色看起来都一样,制作的时候究竟是怎样来分辨品种呢?

难不成,厂里有个榴莲达人?

image.jpeg

我不知道是心理作用还是怎样,全手工制造的月饼吃起来就是与众不同。是怎么样不同嘛,我又说不上来…

一盒月饼内有四种不同口味的榴莲月饼:

– 榴莲王 红肉 红茶榴莲冰皮月饼

– 精品 苏丹王 D24 竹炭榴莲冰皮月饼

– 小王子 D101 抹茶榴莲冰皮月饼

– 至尊极品 猫山王 甜菜根榴莲冰皮月饼

image

如果你也喜欢榴莲,那你一定要试试这盒紫薇Purple Glory四大天王纯榴莲冰皮月饼。

好处是你可以轻松网购,然后冷冻快递到你家。又或者你也可以送给爱吃榴莲的亲友们,肯定让他们受宠若惊!

由于要宴客的关系,我就只介绍了其中两款(不好意思哦!)关于其它详情或直接订购可以点击这里

image

四种不同口味的纯榴莲月饼会被装在特别的食品级保丽龙和冰袋中,加上精美的粉红金盒,保证在送礼的路程中能够安全送达,大方又安心。

image

中秋节遇上榴莲季,多么完美的巧合!要订购就要手快了!

订购紫薇四大天王榴莲冰皮月饼

农历八月十五中秋节:小的时候是灯笼节,因为可以提着新奇特别的各式灯笼去园游会;长大了是月饼节,因为懂得人情世故以后,知道必须准备琳琅满目的月饼送给顾客亲戚朋友;在大一点儿才发现,中秋的意义,其实在于一家齐齐整整,团团圆圆。

今年的中秋,希望大家过得平安快乐!

6 Unique Ways To Start Having More Fun

9 Sep

So the story goes like this, one day when I was working at my desk, trying to re-design the interview form for my company. I wanted to include a question about “what the candidate does for fun”, to further understand how the candidate spend his/her free time enjoying life. I then turned to my colleague and asked her: So what do you do for fun? 

She looked at my for a moment and burst into tears. She told me she doesn’t have fun anymore. She is a wife, mother, and a working woman. She forgot how fun looks like.

Unfortunately, too many of us are just like her. We are busy for the children, taking care of the house, career, house chores… And we forget to have fun. 

Therefore I decide to have some fun every now and then. It can be as simple as eating my favourite chocolate ice cream, hanging out with friends, work on a passion project, or do something I have never tried before.

I notice that I become a better worker, spouse and person if I have fun in my life.

So today I would like to share with you six ways to add fun into your life:

1. Count Your Blessings

Be thankful for what you have in your life. People who count their blessings rather than complain about their troubles just naturally have more fun. Prevent negativity in your life and start writing down all the blessings in your life. You would realize life becomes more fun without much effort!

2. Daydream

Daydreaming is my favourite. I use to think that daydreaming is your mind’s way of sending your soul a message. It is the starting point of all wonderful things and inventions. If you daydream in a positive manner, you will be amazed at how creative your mind can be and the secrets it will tell you.

Take some time off to sit and be quiet and just let your mind wander. Daydream about the kind of life you would like to have, things you want to do. Anything is possible in dreams. Pay attention to what your mind is telling you, write it down in a journal.

As the saying goes, “If you want to know where your heart is, look to where your mind goes when it wanders.”

3. Design A New “You”

Oftentimes we can’t imagine ourselves stepping out of our comfort zone and doing something new and different. We get so locked into what we know that we can’t let go of who we think we are.

So this exercise is simple, think about designing a new “you”. Make up another self that you wished to be. By doing this, you will be more free and able to be anyone you desired.

This should be fun and freeing, so take it easy and make the new “you” to be anything you want. What characters would the new “you” have? What does the new “you” do for fun? How does the new “you” dress?

4. It’s Okay To Have Fun

So many people don’t give themselves permission to have fun because they think it will detract from their responsibilities.

Life is meant to be fun. What kid doesn’t love to see their mother or father having fun, especially if it’s with them?

Yes, we all have things that we are responsible for—kids, parents, house, job—but we need to remember to add in fun and give ourselves permission to have it. You’ll be a better person for it.

5. Yes You CAN

What we tell ourselves becomes our reality. If we think we can’t do something, then we can’t or won’t even try.

For example, let’s say someone suggests surfing as something you might find fun. If you tell yourself that you can’t even swim and you will never find balance on a surf board, you probably won’t even try surfing.

Stop reinforcing these limiting beliefs and start telling yourself you can do it.

6. Dress Up And Show Up

We all have a personal pool of quicksand inside us where we begin to sink and need friends and family to find us and remind us of all the good that has been and will be.

Take on every opportunity to dress up, put on your favourite jewellery and perfume. Go out and meet people, observe how people are having fun. And learn how to genuinely appreciate the good things and good people in your life.

Below are the snippets of my first little 4WD adventure with my husband. One of the things I feel fun doing🙂
