Made some lime jello salad today since I had a craving for it ever since they mentioned it in the Middle Thanksgiving episode recently ☺️
Here’s the recipe – I used almonds cos I didn’t have apricots at hand.
1 box of lime jello mixing powder
1 block of cream cheese
1 cup boiling water
½ cup pineapple juice from pineapple can
1 can pineapple, crushed
1 cup of chopped almonds
2 cups of whipping cream
1. Pour 1 cup of boiling water into the lime jello mixing powder; stir until all the powder is dissolved. Add ½ cup pineapple juice and stir a little.
2. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until half-geled (took about 30 mins!)
3. Cook the crushed pineapples in a pan until it boils.
4. Take out the half-gelled jello and mix in the softened cream cheese. The cream cheese formed a lot of clumps- so I blended the cheese and jello mixture to get a consistent creamy rich green cream.
5. Whip the whipping cream until fluffy. Fold the whipping cream into the jello-cheese mix. Fold in the almonds as well.
6. Pour the entire gravy in a pretty bowl to chill. After 2 plus hours in the refrigerator, it’s ready to be eaten- just slice it up like a really soft cake.
And there you have it! Lime jello salad! Calorie-rich dessert- so, consume wisely!!
Happy holidays! 😊
Equity paper was such a blur. It felt kinda screwy because we couldn’t really identify the issues. But nonetheless, everybody had the same sentiments so I guess it was okay – with faith, I can definitely get a decent GPA.
After the paper, I went bag-shopping, which Bhu kindly came along with. Happy with the purchase – and it turned out Bhu bought the bag for me (what a nice turn-out of events):
Went for lunch with mom and Bhu at City Square Mall. So happy to just have 3 girls hanging out. And then went home to clean up my wardrobe and watch Pong’s wine show.
Turning in earlier than my usual bedtime; planning to wake up early tomorrow and kickstart with a good morning workout and then go to work. Excited for internship tomorrow, well, kinda.
Met Pong for lunch today and we decided to go cheap and eat at my favourite charsiew place around school – Fong Kee Coffee Shop.
Together with one plate of rice each, we ordered assorted meat (charsiew [BBQ-ed pork, glazed with fats and sauce], roasted pork, and roasted duck) as above, and wanton soup as below:
The total bill only came to about $18 ($9/pax) despite ordering a lot.
Pong and my planned visit to the Sushi Bar on Wednesday got brought forward to today instead, and well, let the photos talk first before I ramble, eh?

It’s been a (really) long while since I last wrote something, so here’s a little DIY-project to keep you company for the week!
As you can see, it is a mini-safari themed zoo contained inside a jar. So here is how I did it.
It’s been a week since I last posted something – got a little caught up with internship.
So, day 3 started with a visit to the Coles warehouse managed by Linfox Logistics. It was pretty impressive learning about how the ‘picking’ and packaging systems work in a warehouse. Since Linfox’s warehouses are a little out of town, we ended up having a stop at Williamstown, a fishing village/town just a stone throw away from the Melbourne city. My camera started working again (somehow) but the pictures are not as focused as they are supposed to be! So, please bear with them.
Williamstown is one of those places that you would call beautiful, and paradise at best. According to our tour guide Robert, the town has a beautiful weather – 18 degrees temperature throughout the year, with showers at most twice in a year. We toured the place on a coach most of the time, with Robert stopping the bus for us to go down to take photos at some of the attractions.
We spent the second day mostly on corporate visits. We visited Monash University, CPA Australia and ANZ Bank. The visits were enlightening and of course enjoyable. This post will have no photo since my poor D5100 kinda broke down that day. So I wasn’t exactly in the mood to take photo! But I will just highlight the food places that we ate and highlight some of the places that you should check out!
Lunch was at Monash’s canteen at the Student Council’s building, it had really good pasta and five of us ordered two large boxes of different sauces, and we could hardly finish it! Asians being small-eaters! But it was really delicious pasta and real cheap too!
And then we had our corporate visits around Melbourne’s CBD, we were getting awed by the revolving doors, the lift that took mere seconds to go from the first level to the thirtieth, the beautiful skyline of Melbourne, looking down at the Yarra River from the ANZ’s building, and feeling all so smart in our blazers and coats. It was an eye-opening experience! (more on that later!)
