Everytime after I have come back from travelling, I would pop down to West End Camera shop to get my rolls of negative developed. I will always make sure I get some time to pop into this coffee shop, enjoy my short personal coffee time with my travel journal or skim read some paper…. love how they use different teaspoon for their coffee or a jam jar for their cold drinks!

Her ears | 是時候

RubberBand最新大碟終於推出了。 最喜歡的是這首歌,很mellow,很輕快,但歌詞很有意思。

浮沉於 抑壓的 呼叫中 負苛委屈與創疤
彌留的 戀愛都 枯竭中 是時候要說真話
限期逼緊了 活埋那落差
緩緩的 不刺激 這終結
眼淚偏將你我 完全浸沒嗎 

心愛裡 是否有你
緊扣雙臂 心卻在遠地 總想哪天撤離

不夠細密 不要顧忌
灑脫講句 不要在一起 完全忘記

Cook | lamb rack with herb crust

IMG_5500 IMG_5506

Happy Easter =D Time for some lamb…..

Lamb rack with herb crust
Adapted from Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word

2 large racks of Lamb cut in half with 3 bones per serving
Salt
Pepper
Olive Oil

4 slices of stale bread made into crumbs. **I use Japanese dried breadcrumbs instead, did not have bread at home.
7 Tbs. grated parmesan (roughly 1/2 a cup) **did not used much of this, or did i sub this with grated mature chedder
Sprig parsley
Sprig thyme
Sprig coriander
Sprig rosemary
**all the herbs, I used a mixture of fresh parsley and dried thyme, just because I want to used up what I have at home instead of keep on buying fresh herbs.
splash of olive oil
2 tablespoons English mustard (or sub with dijon)

Pre-heat the oven to 200C
Place lamb on cutting board fat side up. Lightly score the fat layer with a sharp knife. Next, generously sprinkle the lamb with salt and pepper. Mop up the excess seasoning with the rack of lamb, ensuring it’s thoroughly coated.

Heat some olive oil in an oven safe pan. Seal the lamb by holding each side in the oil long enough to develop color (careful not to burn your hands). Transfer the pan with the lamb into the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes.

At the same time, prepare the crust while the lamb is cooking. Place all of the ingredients for the crust except the mustard into a blender and pulse several times until it looks nice and green. Make sure you don’t over do it with the olive oil, just a splash that’s enough for the crumbs to just about to hold together. Pour the mixture into a deep dish (bowl or plate) and set aside.

Remove the lamb from the oven and brush generously with mustard. *no brush, used a spoon and spread it on. Dip the lamb into the crust mixture coating it completely. Dip several times to ensure an even coating. Allow meat to rest for a bit. Place it back into the oven for 3-4 minutes when you’re ready to serve.

My rack gone a little overly pink, which I think I could do with a few more mins in the oven, I find it a slight undercooked. I served mine with roasted veg and plain mash.

Her words | 迷

有沒有人剛剛迷完了《來自星星的你》?? 很感人的韓劇,我啊,好久沒有追過韓劇啊。應該是高中的時候了。現在都沒有那個美國時間去追看。發夢還是要發一下。。。 無條件地付出的愛情啊,你在哪裡啊?

上年看見很多instagrammer拍下很美很美的花朵,給花朵的美吸引了。 今年,不但去了Columbia Flower Market之外,趁有郁金香花買的時候,也買了些回家放著。花美,心情美,人都美一點。 終於買了我要買的ranunculus花了。 美美美。。。

噢,迷上了中國版的《爸爸去哪兒》後,便接著迷上了第二季的《我是歌手》。 好友說,你是唯一我認識而又會看國內電視的朋友。 嗯,只因我聽得懂,不用看字模。其他韓國的都要看字模嘛。加上國內的節目近期也真的做得挺不錯,起碼,比較某些節目,娛樂性更高!

因迷上了花,連帶也迷上了想收集不同類型的花瓶。花瓶不便宜啊,在H&M買了九個小花瓶給我老爸說要幫我的桃花陣。。。 我喜歡的是LSA International的東西, 貴但品質很好的東西,有自己的家時一定會買他們家的東西。   嗯, 說真的,不用刻意去買花瓶。也可以用飲料的玻璃瓶,而我最近碰巧喝掉兩瓶一高一矮的lemonade…  收集收集去。

而約上個星期開始迷上的法國小鎮Marseille製造的奶酪La Fermiere。天,實在太美味了。我喜歡比較濃厚的奶酪,而他們的真的很棒。 解釋不了了的,個人口感喜愛而已。 今天下班,還特地跑去Harrods買呢。 噢,今天還買了瓶creme de chocolat吃吃看,很潤滑,啊。。 看起來又迷上了多一樣東西了!

週末愉快哦~~

Coffee talk | Latte at Recipease Jamie Oliver

IMG_5609
Was nearby for a hygienist check up by my dear friend but i was naughty enough to get a latte at Recipease before my check……

Nice smooth coffee but beans are slight bitter for me, needed some sugar. Worth a visit with an open kitchen for teaching.

Recipease Jamie Oliver

Her words | a sunset flare that makes you smile.

IMG_8778
da ta….. sunset is shine, so should be our mind and heart.

keep smiling.

是這樣的,人生苦短,如果要活,還不是做快樂的那位來得比較劃算。 快樂讓任何事物的回報更高,所以做人啊還是快樂點好。。。。
