After this trip, I finally knew.

This is where we learned how to make Ice Cream.  Hokkaido Ice Cream is really good.  This is gelato type of Ice Cream.

We have been here last year.  We have our wonderful Ice Cream here.

It is nice to re-visit this place.

When we came here last year, we only buy the ice cream and sit at the barn there and watch the cow and Mt. Yotei.

We didn’t know there is a short course teaching you how to make Ice Cream.  

Thanks to the private tour agency and the tour guide who brought us here to experience something that is different.

Wow, this girl looks like 广末凉子.

IMG 6959

When she is teaching, every one watch.  The lady in the middle is Tomoko-san our private tour guide.

It is nice to have a tour guide who speaks perfect English.

I pity the next table, whom I believe the family is from Malaysia, they too have a private tour guide, but the tour guide was not doing any thing or explaining.  As for our Tomoko-san, she explained and translate every sentence the pretty girl is saying so that we know what to do.  And luckily for that, the table next door got huge benefit and fun by listening to her explanation in English.  :)

Let’s get on to it.

First we need 380cc of Milk.  Hokkaido Fresh Milk.

IMG 6970

Then, you add 120cc of fresh cream in it.  Mix it.

IMG 6973

Next, you will need to put 40g of fine sugar and mix everything with a stirrer.

IMG 6974

It’s time to stir and mix the milk, cream and sugar together.

And then, the cube ice are placed in another aluminium bowl.  This is to cool down the milk plus cream.

IMG 6976

And then, you need to place the salt onto the ice.  So that it has lesser direct ice to ice frictions and keep the temperature low.  I think.

IMG 6978

Yup… just put all the salt in it.

IMG 6979

Kay can do such a simple task.  Put salt onto the ice.

IMG 6982

Meanwhile, our ice cream mix is already ready.

IMG 6985

Place the milk cream on top of the ice bowl and start spinning.

IMG 6988

While spinning, scrap the ice cream off the bowl.

Then, scrap more ice cream of the bowl.  keep spinning.

 IMG 7001

Your ice cream is almost done.

This is how cold the bowl can be.  Very cold.

IMG 7008

And it is done!

IMG 7012

A few more spin.  And it is completely done.  Our first home made ice cream by hand.

Now she teaches us how to make the waffle.

IMG 2943

Place the Ice Cream on it.  Yummy.

IMG 7013

And our successful home made ice cream.

IMG 7015

Of course, kids learned and have lots of fun!

IMG 2946

Time to say good bye.

Kay Kay Completed His Kindergarten

Date:  Dec 29, 2015

Finally, since 18 months old, Kay Kay has finally say good bye to his pre-school - Lorna Whiston.

Next year, he will be joining his brother for Primary 1.

Just after he got his blue belt in Taekwondo, he attended the Pei Tong Primary School orientation.

IMG 4191

He felt happy on that orientation day.

IMG 4207

He gets to wear his new uniform.  Looks a bit big.

IMG 4213

He is funny.  So, he will definitely survive in his Primary School years.

IMG 4230

When he was in K1, we were a bit worry about him, wonder when he can grow up.  But K2 seems completely different, and he grew up fast during that year.

IMG 4244

His bodyguard will be protecting him for the first 3 years in Primary School.  Jay Jay!

IMG 4256

This will be his new school bag.

IMG 4264

On Nov 28, this is the day Kay Kay for the first time will not be sleeping at home with parents.

That day is his K2 Camp Night.  This is the traditional day where K2 students spent the night with the teachers at school.

But this year, LWPS did it differently.

Instead of having the school camp in Lorna Whiston Pre-School, the school camp is held in Sentosa Underwater World.

IMG 4960

Yup, he is going to stay overnight at Sentosa Underwater World.

There are a lot of activity for them to do at Underwater World.  And they don’t get to sleep until 12 mid-night.  Wow.
