Konnyaku Jelly

I like to eat jelly so much, today I prepared these in within 15 minutes.  You can find "Tim Willie" Konnyaku Jelly powder at any store and the cooking instruction will be at the back side of package, it's very clear and simple to follow.  
What I needed to prepare were 250 g of sugar, different flavor of juice, a can of de Coconut, and mold.

With the shapes and crystal clear look of them already cool down your day!

Happy Valentine's Day

My hubby and I have read about The Five Love Languages  by Dr. Gary Chapman.  We really impress for how he helps many spouses to understand how to have better communication by using the five love languages.  There are the Chapman's five love languages, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service and physical touch.  I always searching myself if I have done enough or showed the "right" love language for him at that day.

Even though "Gifts" is my last from the five, but my hubby still choose to show me his love whatever, wherever he can.  Surprisingly, he gave me a tulip bouquet for Valentine's Day, and he knows I like tulip flowers.
