Anti gambling Singapore - Andy's Daddy was right after all!

While the rest of the world was making memes with Christ the Redeemer after Germany's win over Brazil, Singapore was laughing over her own anti-gambling ad.

Don't cry Andy, your daddy was right! Esp after Germany trashed Brazil like nobody's business before half-time, and this was played on tv again (yes, we get to watch semi finals on tv for free... *subdued yeah*), everybody was laughing....

and laughing and laughing...

I shared the commercial with the Bloke (as well as the one from Germany):
Someone did, and won S$15,000 for S$100 bet.

This little girl was from another anti-gambling campaign by the same org
Even Jimmy Fallon joined in on the fun...

Tower of David

I think traveling to other countries is good because it broadens one's horizons. Everytime I come home I appreciate what I have here a little more. Here is a story about the world's tallest slum, the Tower of David in Venezuela. The building was abandoned mid-construction with the death of the primary investor David Brillembourg (building was eponymously named), Venezuela plunged into financial crisis where they had to bail out 17 of their banks. 

So some 2000 homeless people moved into the building and called it home.

巧克力熔岩蛋糕 Chocolate lava cake ... Not

Came across this recipe, it was really easy for a molten chocolate lava cake. So decided to give it a try after dinner today. I cooked very small portions for dinner tonight, to Bobo's shock. Naturally he was enthusiastic when I said I was going to bake molten lava cakes.
Don't look too closely at the expiry dates :D

Oops, didn't have any ramekins, so I used cupcake shells to hold the cakes (note to self, should reduce the baking time. I also used chocolate chips leftover from the time my neffe came over to bake cupcakes (that was a terrible nightmare). As it was, I actually increased the time to 15 min, instead of the required 12). No wonder when they came out they looked like erupted volcanoes.

Chocolate lava cake
50g chocolate
40g cream
35g Caster sugar
1 egg
25g Low gluten flour/ cake flour

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over boiling water. After it melts,  add the cream to the chocolate and continue melting.
Beat eggs,  add sugar to it then pour into the chocolate mixture.
Mix the flour well  into the mixture. Pour into a ramekin and set aside.
Set oven to 200 degree Celsius. When hot, put cake into oven for 12 min.
