Actually i have printed it out some times ago but have not tried it out yet and also i find that it is quite simple to do. Suitable for people like me, as i 'm only interested in doing simple item. Too complicate item will be bye-bye.
I have raisins at home, so i add in raisins, i forgot that i should have add in the raisins into the flour, instead i add in last, that why the raisins sink into the bottom.
Last sat, Sally sms me, asking me whether want to go over to her place as Kate and family is going over to her place. Because i have something on in, so i went over to her place after i settle with my things. Sally has prepared 八宝粥, but i forgot to take picture of that.
