hahaha…. did the title of this post catch your attention? It’s not about the dramas in my life (not that I have many of that). The dramas that I am talking about are the TVB ones which I am chasing after right now. My brother-in-law downloads the latest TVB dramas for his mom to watch and I also get to watch them too. Bliss. I don’t know where he got them from but I’m not complaining. Don’t have to buy anymore dvds from my vendor. I get to watch them for free now and best of all, I can watch them on my tv and not the computer. I find it hard to watch the dramas on the computer. Not good for my eyes. Ok, I just finished watching Ghetto Justice II. Going to start Witness Insecurity or Divas In Distress soon
Are you a die-hard TVB drama fan too?
Every day when I come home from the office, I would rush to do all the necessary things like prepare dinner for Ashley, wash all the bottles and food containers, whatever housework that need to be done, exercise and then have my salad dinner. I also get Ashley to do her maths homework right after her dinner so that if she needs help I can guide her because by 8pm, no one can disturb me That’s the time when I have my ‘Me’ time to watch this…
Lives of Omission
This 30 episode TVB drama premiered in Hong Kong and Malaysia on 1 August 2011 and ended early this month. I got the DVD from my regular supplier recently and have watched 11 episodes so far. Michael Tse is one of my favourite actors and I like his “Laughing Gor” character So besides pinning on Pinterest, I de-stress by watching my TVB drama, one hour a day. Are you a TVB drama fan too?
I have just started to watch The Stew of Life online, one of the latest TVB family comedy drama. During Episode 1, Fala Chen asked her mom, Louise Lee if she could have some Papaya and Snow Fungus dessert. Ahhh…..after watching her savour the dessert, I decided to make it myself I googled and found the recipe here.
2. Snow fungus
3. Sweet and bitter almonds
4. Cane sugar (I used Rock Sugar)
1. Soak the white fungus in cold water. (Take note, they will expand in size after soaking.)
2. Cut and deseed the papaya
3. Put everything into the pot and boil. (I boiled it under low heat for over 2 hours)
4. Add in desire amount of sugar to taste
A medium-sized papaya, rock sugar and sweet/bitter Chinese almonds (available at the Chinese Medical shop). I totally forgot about the snow fungus till an hour after I boiled this dessert. Luckily I had some in the fridge
Put everything into a pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 2 hours. You can even cook them in a crock pot. Serve warm or chill.
The Papaya White Fungus dessert is one of the more nourishing Chinese desserts. Show fungus are good for nourishing the lungs and the sweet/bitter almonds heal cough and expel phlegm. Can’t wait to drink this dessert while enjoying The Stew of Life
Glittering Days is about Ling Fung, played by Roger Kwok, who is a famous singer in a nightclub and kinda snobby too. Ling Fung keeps bumping into Kam Yin played by Lisa Wang. They get at each other’s nerve a lot and it is hilarious to watch the 2 of them together. Kam Yin has been searching for her long lost son and parted with a lot of money to a crook who told her that he had found his son. In actual fact, Ling Fung is her long lost son and they did not know until much later. Very entertaining and fun to watch.
