Rice Krispies Snack!

Being in Perth, my cousins are at school at this time so I don’t have much to do so I was on the Internet looking up easy, quick sweet recipes, kind of like the stuff you find at your school bakesale, if they have on at yours. So I found this delicious recipe! Enjoy ūüôā
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients/items
1 1/2 table spoons of butter
20 Marshmellows
3-3/12 cups of Rice Krispies/Rice Bubbles
Hundreds and Thousands (optional)
Cutting board
Knife
Some sort of cooking spray/baking paper/butter to grease tray
Spatula
Spoon

Steps.
1. Over a low flame, melt some butter. When melted, add some Marshmellows, stirring until melted. The consistency shouldn’t be like a soup.

2. When done, remove from flame and allow to cool. Once cooled, add in Rice Krispies and mix with the spoon until well coated.

3. Taking a greased/buttered/baking paper lined baking tray, spoon mixture onto it. I used a square baking tray. Use the spatula or your fingers to flatten it and shape it to fit the tray, or if the tray’s too big, shape it yourself.

4. Sprinkle hundreds and thousands to make it look prettier and have more colour. (optional)

5. Place it in fridge for 20 seconds. Remove it and place onto a cutting board. Chop it into 2inchx2inch pieces or to your liking.

Enjoy!

Hi everyone!

Essential Japanese Words

Hey!

I recently came back from the beautiful city of Tokyo, it really is amazing! But that is another story.

You see, in Tokyo, not many people speak English and if they do, it probably isn’t very good. I can’t speak much Japanese but this was enough to help me get around. In Tokyo, my family and I stayed at my mum’s friend’s house and they aren’t Japanese but they can speak a bit and they taught me a little so I have to give them credit! ūüėÄ I don’t know how to spell it correctly but I’m just gonna write it like how it’s pronounced.

2 or 3 eggs                                                                  Tamarind or Tamarind Paste

Brown Sugar                                                               Fish Sauce

3. Chop the Garlic into very small pieces

4. Chop the Chives into 3 center meter long pieces

5. Soak the rice noodles and bean sprouts in  water

6. Crack the eggs, whip them until the Yolk has broken, it doesn’t need to be whipped much!

7. If you’re using Prawns, peel them. If you’re using Pork, cut them into cubes. Season both with a bit of pepper and salt.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

~You don’t need much of this!~ If you don’t want to make it, buy tamarind paste, you only need a teaspoon of paste.

To make the Tamarind sauce, first pound the tamarind. Next, over a stove, put some room temperature water into the stove and place the tamarind inside. Add 3 tablespoons of Sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons of Fish Sauce. Add a dash of salt and a teaspoon of soy sauce. Wait for it to heat up. Taste it! It should have a sharp, sweet, sour and a little bit salty taste. If you don’t like it, add more sugar or something until you are satisfied.

______________________________________________________________________________________

The Cooking Bit! USING A WOK!  Cook on a medium flame.

1. Put in 2-3 tablespoons of¬†vegetable oil, it’s going to be used for everything, so don’t worry about unhealthy ūüėČ

2. Chuck in the  garlic and wait until it turns a bit golden, then add in the meat (prawn or pork) and wait until it is cooked.

3. Remove it and place it in a bowl but don’t turn off the fire! Next add the Eggs in and scramble them.

4. Remove and place in a bowl again!

5. Cook the tofu until it turns golden, should take about 2-3 minutes

5. Pour in about 2 cups of water and add the noodles in, let it sit for about a minute then add in the tamarind sauce/paste.

6. Add some soy sauce and a tablespoon of fish sauce.

7. Put in the things you cooked before! (Eggs, Meat and Tofu)

8. Stir and add in Beansprouts, grated carrots and chives. Don’t forget to season!

9. Mix it around the wok and keep tasting.

10. For the Final Part, Taste, Add half a lime juice and (add crushed peanuts and chilli! (optional))

10. If it tastes good and you like it turn off the fire and serve when ready! It tastes best when you just finished cooking it!

Enjoy ūüėÄ

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe tomorrow is 2012! There are rumours that the world will end on December 31st 2012 so I guess that¬†2012 is the time to find out ūüėÄ

Where am I know? You may wonder, well I am in¬†Pattaya which is a bit outside of¬†Bangkok which is¬†the capital city. I’m at my most favourite hotel (this is the first time I’ve been here). It’s called Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya. It’s really cool because it has a rock and roll theme and there are many important artifacts (real, of course) to the¬†world of rock and roll! They have the original¬†Michael Jackson¬†suit, The Supremes’ dress and many more. The pool is so awesome it’s really big! The rooms are really cool too they have¬†pictures of famous bands and singers from the 70’s to 90’s!

On Tuesday, I am off to Taipei which is in Taiwan so when I get back, I shall write about the interesting city of Taiwan!

Such a busy year next year!¬†I’m going to be visiting many places like Japan, Taiwan and Perth¬† (again!) so expect some stories ūüôā

Anyways, wishing all of you the best for the coming year ♥

Hey guys!

I haven’t written in a while and recently I just felt like writing this.

I made this lip balm with my friends Keri, Liza and Ilaria when they came over to my house yesterday!

Be careful! This DIY can get a little bit messy so I recommend doing it in the kitchen, outdoors or on newspapers.

You will need

– 1 lipstick (non-scented) in the color of your choice (it can be a cheap one as we only need it for the color)

– water

– vanilla extract or vanilla essence

Рpetroleum jelly or Vaseline (preferably in a tube)

– a small plastic container which you will put your mixture into!

– a bowl which you will mix the mixture in

– something you can use to mix up the mixture (I like using a cheap bamboo chopstick)

– A ladle (metal)

———————————————————————————————————-

LETS BEGIN!

1. Add one and a half teaspoons of water into your bowl

2. Squeeze in about 2 or 3 cm of Vaseline (one full teaspoon)

3. Mix up what is in the bowl so far

4. Cut anywhere between a quarter to a half of the lipstick depending on how much you want to make

5. Add a drop of Vanilla Essence

6. Mix everything together

7. If you think it is too hard, slowly add drops of water until you are satisfied

THE NEXT BIT CAN GET REAL MESSY IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL

8. Empty the mixture and put it into the ladle

9. Over the stove, on a low fire melt the mixture until it is liquid

8. Pour the mixture into your plastic container(s).

9. Put it in the fridge for about half an hour

10. When the time is up, remove it and check if it has hardened to your desired consistency, if you want it harder put it back in the fridge for another 15 minutes. Take it out after the time is up, and you’re done!

PS. It applies best with a lip brush but finger application is also good!

———————————————————————————————————————-

Hope that you will get to try this out and it will be successful!

Good luck,

Yasmin ūüôā

Getting Hyped Up!!!

Hello dear dedicated people,

ITS ALMOST THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, it’s Christmas but this is ALMOST more exciting!

It’s that time of year when WordPress will review my blog and tell you all the stats and all that blah-de-blah-de-blah.
Okay, so it may not be THAT exciting but still, it is something to look forward to, well for me anyways because I’ve been working hard all year long writing up posts, taking photos, recording videos and exploring the big world called Earth!

Lastly, I would just like to say Thankyou! Without you guys, the viewers, this blog would be NO WHERE. Last year my blog had about 1,5000 views which is quite a lot for a kid’s first year blogging, during that time I was 10 years old. No matter how many views I get this year, 0 or a million I will keep on blogging and I hope that you will keep on checking back here for more!

Stay Safe Everyone!
