I googled YouTube and followed the steps in making the coffee house scones.
I must say I personally love the taste. Crispy brown on the outside and soft on the inside. They have the nice butter aroma and I must say they taste better than scones sold in some cafe.

It's a ceramic sculpture of a little frog on a lily leaf.
For the first time in more than 40 years, my coursemates and I went to the Lin Chu Kang area to explore. There are many farms and nurseries there. Bought this in one of the nurseries and had goat milk.
It was really an eventful day.

found himself surrounded by children most days. So he decided to play
a little game with them. He managed to get candy from the nearest town
and put it all in a decorated basket, at the foot of a tree.
Then he called the children and suggested they play the game. When the
anthropologist said "now", the children had to run to the tree and the
first one to get there could have all the candy to him/herself.
So the children all lined up waiting for the signal. When the
anthropologist said "now", all of the children took each other by the
hand ran together towards the tree. They all arrived at the same time
divided up the candy, sat down and began to happily munch away.
The anthropologist went over to them and asked why they had all run
together when any one of them could have had the candy all to
The children responded: "Ubuntu. How could any one of us be happy if
all the others were sad?"
Ubuntu is a philosophy of African tribes that can be summed up as "I
am what I am because of who we all are."

I've given many to friends in nice pots but a lot of them were murdered by drowning.
They survive with little water, so don't drown them with excessive watering.

I'm trying to start a photo a day programme taking things around us at different angles and posting them. Of course with some effects from photo apps, these mundane objects get a new lease of life.
