Mango Lover

Any Mango Lovers out there? 
Most of us love this tropical fruit.  Out at the supermarket or market, you can easily get mangoes during its season.  If you are lucky, you might get sweet ones.  The last round we had very sour mangoes, yucky... !
I am a crazy mango lover!
Usually we sliced the mangoes, chilled in a tupperware before serving.
Most of us love mangoes.  Today, we are not only eating the sliced mangoes, but is a nicely baked Mango Cake by Ling!  She layered slices of mango on top of the cake.

Simple Egg Mayonnaise Sandwiches

Ling prepared this egg mayonnaise sandwiches for her hubby's breakfast.  Today, no request from her dearest princess, she just had a small portion of this sandwich before school.
Ling used Glico Pocky Strawberry Sticks (hair) and smiley nori punchers (expression).

Egg Mayonnaise & Fruits

Time flies 时间不饶人!  Another Monday morning ~~~ After the long weekend, a fresher day to start with a simple egg mayonnaise with veggies, mini sandwiches with butter spread and some fruits.
This is my 7th day at work and managed to make this charaben.
It's no exception a busy Monday to move on for the rest of the week, lots of documents to be sorted out and I was home late again! (Missed the yummy pumpkin soup that Ling prepared today)
It's been awhile I have not worked longer hours for a 5day week, but simply enjoying this new environment.
