It's great to have my daring girl back from her school camp, the house is so quiet without her. She slept 5 hours straight after she came home. Her gift to me from the trip was loads and loads of washing! Hahaha...
I would make some fresh juice at least once a week during winter to help boosting our immunity. My favourite choice includes apple, orange, pear, lettuce, carrot, celery, cucumber, tomato and capsicum. I usually put in 4-5 varieties with half and half portions of fruit and vegetable. I also throw in some parsley or wheatgrass if they come in handy. I find this Dutch carrot at the supermarket and it makes a really nice colour and taste good in juicing. In an actual fact, carrot is originally purple and it is changed to orange colour by Dutch about 300 years old. Whether it's purple or orange, carrot is a good for our health.
I am joining the Guardian Angel Knitting Program for the first time. Over the past 12 years, more than 2 million knitted garments have been donated to families in needs. This year the program is supported by Variety, the children's charity to give warmth to the children in need not only in Australia but Christchurch in New Zealand where children are affected by the earthquake. I am planning to make 2-3 garments by 31 August, that's about 6 weeks left. My sister joins the program every year and she is so good at knitting.

My marble cake topped with profiteroles is listed in Petitchef's daily menu. Yay!
