I am Mrs Toh

Had an awesome lunch last Friday! Colleague ordered Nihon Mura via Foodpanda. First time we are using their service and it was quite good. Delivery was fast, took about an hour and the food was yummy!

The side dishes were delicious. Loved the egg, the octupus and the jelly too! Salmon was overcooked, to be expected for delivery but tasted good. Am feeling hungry just looking at this. O.O

Met Mr Toh after work at Gugu’s shop where we had dinner then headed home. While on the way home, I asked Mr Toh if he wanted to watch a movie, he said yes but no movie that he wanted to watch. So I decided on The Fault in Our Stars! Booked the tickets but didn’t tell him what movie. HAHAHA. =P

Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

Hmmmmm. What should I say? I’ve read the book before but didn’t really LOVE love it. I thought it was pretty touching but that’s it.
Mr Toh thought the movie was OK.
I, however, cried like a baby. I thought the movie was very touching and well acted. I don’t really fancy Shailene Woodley as Hazel though. But I LOVED Ansel Elgort as Gus! Just the opposite of the Divergent movie where I preferred Shailene’s casting to Ansel’s. Hahaha. I thought Ansel was really great in this movie, very lovable.
Oooh, I also thought the actor cast as Hazel’s father was really hot. =X

More salmon craving on Sat. Mum went out early, Mr Toh and Sis was at work, so I decided to cook my own lunch. Cooking mojo is back!

Headed to Punggol Plaza to buy salmon and mushrooms for my pasta~~ They didn’t have any white button mushrooms though. I ended up buying these Swiss brown mushrooms that looked similar, and after googling, it seems they’re quite similar.

Decided to cook salmon & mushroom cream pasta.

Start boiling a pot of water and add salt for the spaghetti.

Had to pan fry the salmon in butter first. Goodness….I hated it! Made the whole kitchen floor and wall so oily. T_T

Looked really good after pan frying, I was so tempted to eat it just like that.

Add spaghetti to the water once it boils.

Then add more butter to the pan and fry the mushrooms. I forgot an important step here…..I forgot to add salt!! My pasta ended up quite bland. =(

Shredded the salmon, then added the whipping cream to the mushrooms, let it cook for a few minutes until cream is thicker then add in the salmon. Because I like my pasta spicy, I added 1 small chili chopped.

After a while more, add in the pasta. Stir to mix the whole thing together and dish on your plate.

And the final product! Showed the photo to Mr Toh and he said it looks good. Hee. Really looks good huh?? But portion was so big I couldn’t finish the whole thing. T_T I think my estimation skills still need more work.

Mr Toh bought some cake mixes when we were at Mustafa. Finished my housework after my meal so then I decided to bake a cake!

Looks good too. HEHEHEHE.

But while removing the cake from the pan, it broke in half. OH MY GOD. Managed to salvage a big piece that resembles a cake shape, then added dark chocolate frosting but the end product looks damn ugly so no pictures. HAHAHA. Mr Toh said the cake was a bit dry but taste wise was still OK. Not bad lah~

Finished reading Nora Robert’s The Collector over the weekend. Hmm, I liked the story but I realised I don’t like her writing style. Just not appealing to me…

Attended an ex colleague’s wedding at MBS on Sunday~

Wore the new maxi that Huiyi bought for me from Bangkok~

Didn’t manage to take a full OTD. I loved the maxi! Too lazy to wear heels but the length was perfect for me, no alteration needed at all.

The food was really good and they even hired Kumar for entertainment!

We had a really good time! He was hilarious, occasionally even laughing at his own jokes. LOL.

Wishing the lovely couple happiness forever~~
