Oreo-Cookies Cheesecake

With 2 blocks of creamcheese, I decided to make a cheesecake for ds' cell group on Saturday. Knowing the children except elder ds, love anything chocolate, I was set on making a chilled Oreo-Cookies Cheesecake for them. I am happy that all of them like it very much. In the end, elder ds was tempted or I should say 'force' to give it a try by eating a small piece of it:)

Fishy Fishy!!

A simple dinner for all at home. We had fish and chips! But 'Ah Gong and Ah Ma'(my in-laws) not use to eating this (just fish and chips), I cooked some rice for them to eat with the fish instead. Well, I m glad that hub and the children love it. Oh btw, I bought the sutchi fillet at Carefour for $2.50/pkt. There are 3 big pcs in a pkt. I bought 4 pkts altogether. Think is on promotion then..

Here is my FISH AND CHIPS!

What we had for Christmas Day?
