Farewell bowl of laksa and new toy

Had a lovely, albeit very hot walk around for free cardio on Saturday. Went with Namrata M from my KB group and we caught up about our summer activities then commiserated on the diet. We split up for lunch as she is on program and I went to my favorite laksa place in Central. Yum! Omg, the laksa is good there.

My kids start school on Wednesday so we are enjoying the last few days of no structure. I batch cooked some veggies last night, including severely over baking some sweet potato after not setting the timer and I have fruit in the fridge. Ready for the next 5 weeks here.

Last but not least, my lovely neighbor brought back this yogurt maker from Europe for me! First batch went in last night, I made it with skim milk and no sugar so let's see what comes out.

That looks excellent. I’ll be interested in following along with the yogurt trials.

    That looks amazing! Let us know how the yogurt goes. I might need to get something like that!

      Mine don't go back to school till NEXT Wednesday and we don't do so well without structure so can't wait for school!! Laksa is a great indulgence and homemade yogurt is the best!

        That is a fancy maker. One of my sons has begun making his own yogurt but he is sticking to the old fashioned way, no fancy machines. Of course he is making it with 4,5% milk (not homogenized) he gets straight from the dairy so that might have an effect. Have fun with your new toy.

          Enjoy the final few days vacation. So weird that everyone goes back in August. We always started after Labor Day as kids. Look forward to hearing how the yogurt is.

            Ooh - need more info. What's the laksa place?!
            And curious on the yogurt. I used to make my own but starter died and I haven't been able to recreate. Maybe need a machine...

              Off to an awesome start with week 2, Kim! Let us know how you get on with the yoghurt maker!

                @Kathleen, I have made yogurt with no machine but not so easy in my HK apartment as it involved getting the cooler box out and insulating etc. etc. This little machine does it all!!
                @Janet--August is not ideal to start back in HK due to typhoons, I think it has something to do with the IB exam schedule at the end of the school year. Who knows?
                @Elissa--it is Affinity on Gilman's Bazaar, it is probably closer to Sheung Wan MTR now that I think of it. Don't be put off by the hole in the wallness of it.

                  I was so tempted to jump onto Sculpt a week late but I'm going to do it properly in October.
                  Nice neighbours!
                  Have a great program Kim!
