Who wants some vanilla ice cream?

Greetings! Kopivosian!

Do you know what this UFO-like thing is? Well, that's my mini ice cream maker. Hee! :)

I've long thought about how nice it would be that when we move into our "mansion", I can do lots of desserts and enjoy at home. So when we finally got our refrigerator (after almost 2 years of living without one), last night was "the" night to make some home made desserts while watching Crime Scene Investigation (CSI): New York at Channel AXN. 

The recipe was very simple given by a kind lady, named Grace, who sold me this cute gadgy at You can check here for more details. Grace also gave a copy of her English translated ice cream recipes which are super easy to make. I chose to make the simplest recipe -- Vanilla ice cream. 


1 can of NESTLE cream (approx. 300g) 
1 small can of condensed milk (approx. 400g)
2 tsp of vanilla extract

Mixed all the ingredients with my fantastic kitchen assistant's help -- PHILIPS food processor, then poured into mini icey-creamy maker before patiently waiting for it to set.

I wished I could tell you how it taste like. But the chilling and hardening process took longer than I expected. I started making the mix at 10PM last night, and by 1AM, then only it started to get hardened. The reason? Yeah, I kept it at the fridge, instead of freezer, which was suggested by hubby in the 1st place.

Okay, my mistake. But mistakes are meant to be made so more ice creams can be made, right? ;) 

I shall reveal the answer by this evening. So anyone wants to be my "food tester"? :) 

p/s: I've also made mango pudding last night, but I'll save your appetite for next post. ;)

  1. special delivery to Charley's residance....pls!!

  2. No problem. If cannot wait for delivery, just drop by at The Manson's Lil Mansion for some dessert after dinner. :)

  3. hahaha... the joy of owning one's new home... I thought ice cream takes at least 5-6 hours to set properly??? 2 years without a fridge?????

  4. Bea, was I just being desperate to try out or what? ;) I can tell you after we finally owned a fridge, it really took us a while to "learn" to fill the fridge with food. Ha!

DIY Birthday invitation card for Rosanna Ku

Greetings! Kopivosian!

Remember my niece Lil' Rosanna? Or we would call her Mei-Mei (The little girl) in the family.

Mei-Mei with her birdie eyes
Well, it's her birthday coming. She's celebrating her birthday on Monday, 19 July 2010 at school during school recess. She has asked her mom for a "homemade" birthday cake so she could bring to school. And my job? It's to design her birthday invitation cards for her little friends and teachers at school.

Mei-Mei is turning 6 this year. Since she loves Disney characters so much, especially Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, I've decided to design her invitation card with the theme she loves most. :)
I stumbled on a fantastic website that creates Mickey and Minnie invitation cards for sale from Lisa's handmade invitation cards. Since it's impossible for me to order from Lisa, I decided to do my own version of DIY birthday card for Mei-Mei. There was no tutorials in Lisa&#…

To my love, thanks for everything...

Life is great having a special man like you. God bless you, dear... Xoxo

Happy Birthday, Den-Den! 17012015

My little Den-Den has turned 2! Yeay! Woohoo!

No, I never wrote about Den-Den. He was born in January 17, 2013 in Sibu, Sarawak. He's the only son of my only brother Canny & Kristy who got married in 2012. Time flies so fast!!

It's a great fun having a little one in our family. (FYI, Den-Den is a master frequent flyer between KK & Sibu, often travel back to mom's hometown to see his grandparents)

Being a 姑姑 Gugu a.k.a. Aunty, I've been learning to keep up with him too because we haven't had a little baby in the family for quite a long, long time, consider the youngest one, Mei-Mei is now 10, going to 11. :P

This is technically a "belated" birthday & I've just missed the birthday cake... (my bad for being late from a meeting)

Yesterday, we had a steamboat dinner to celebrate sister B's birthday (coming Jan 20th) in advance & I did a little impromptu set up for a photo corner with colourful garland strings as backdrop. Simple, it…
