What you CAN do with snow

In my earlier post today, I said I had something to do with the snow. Well, I raided my pantry to look for some proper ingredients. Zilch... Nada.... No colouring whatsoever for this special project.


Well, I'll let you in what it is. You know how people joke about having some snow for ABC. Snow is not for consuming, so it's just a joke. Still, I'd love to just decorate a bowl of snow just like what you'd get in most stalls or restaurants back home. Frustrated because I didn't have the ingredients to fix my bowl of ABC, I flunked back into my chair to (supposedly) work on something. Low and behold, there was mamasarah on the line!


I pleaded her to fix a bowl of ABC for my sake because I know she has syrup in her larder. Whatmore, she's such an artist in the kitchen and with the camera! She'd be the perfect person to help me out with this favour.


So here is the picture of the Coventry ABC. Any orders????

at this point, malaysia is moving towards the really panas season. it is forcasted that draughts shall take place till oct, starting may. and it's already fever season.

Puan D,

TQ for dropping a line.

Wales snow? 32 months kat sana (1996-1999) tak pernah snow tebal. Snowdownnia (betul ke eja) yang selalunya nampak putih melepak.

Pengalaman pertama kali bermain snow semasa menuntut di Dundee, Scotland (1992-1993). Kami pergi ke Aviemore!

Sekarang, Scotland tak ada Snow?

Dunia berubah!

Take care and salam perkenalan.

Hi d,

Thanks so much for hopping over my blog and thanks for your sweet comment.

What a lovely concoction that ABC. Am salivating now. Got to get some real one today..ha ha. I would think if mamasarah did that in past non-pollution days, perhaps that would be palatable..eh? So sad about our pollution today!

I experienced the first heavy snowing in London a couple of years back. I was at a nearby shopping center (walkable from my home, a 15-minute very brisk walk, you know how it is in UK) and got trapped as there were huge jams (and I panicked) and my hubby was worried sick he insisted that I stayed put and he walked to the shopping center (as taking any other form of transport would have been futile then) to navigate me back home. But walking in snow seemed forever for him. But that's when you realised some gallant true character in your loved ones.

Once I got home and the panic subsided, I started to be excited as it was ages since I last experienced snow. Ha ha ha. How crazy things can be with snow.

hanie,
even in hot Malaysian weather, you can still get ABC - spesel lagik!!!

Kaklong,
Err.. didn't know it was a challenge for me. I went to Tesco last night but was too tired to fix the ABC then. Today, it has been raining... so, snow dah cair!!! sob! sob!

mki,
not wales, but midlands.. ;)

mulan,
sorry, we're out of snow. kena tunggu next winter!

ruby ahmad,
tell me, how did the ABC go??

kaklady,
bila jalan dalam lecak snow yang mula cair, diorang dah teringat kat Slurpee 7-Eleven!

Kak Teh,
You've been here longer. Never fixed your ABC snow (for show, of course!)

ajzie,
yeah... I prayed so hard after seeing the snow in your blog!!

I think no ABC can taste better than ABC made of snow (edible snow, as the shavings of snow is super fine..he he).
