Red velvet cupcakes and cheesecake are getting very, very popular. My friend, Audrey said I still bake the best red velvet cake. So happy to hear that.
It was also my staff, Carmen's birthday. I brought a box of these cupcakes to office for her to share with our colleagues. My colleagues like it but some said its not sweet enough.
I baked for the whole 3 days from Good Friday to Easter Sunday. It was tiring but satisfying.
Need to shelf the baking activities for a while as Jared's mid year exam is just round the corner. I am more worry and stress than Jared for his exam. I don't remember my parents have to worry about my exam during my school time.

Thereafter, Hubby and I dropped off my car to car service workshop in our neighbourhood for service.
Finally, when I got home, I started to whip butter cream to ice those cupcakes. Since I still had some time, I decided to rush some cupcakes for Jaden's kinder teacher and also some for Jared to bring to school to share with his classmates.
I also shared some cupcakes with our neighbour and Jaden's mandarin teacher. The mandarin teacher was so nice. She shared the 4 cupcakes that I gave to her with all of her students.
It was a fruitful morning, achieved 3 things in the morning ... baked cupcakes, did Jared's revision and car service. I've made appointment for my spa manicure and pedicure. They are having promotion at special price of RM95 for both. I needed pedicure badly, my feet were very dry and they need a good pampering session. The last time that I had my mani and pedi done was just before CNY in Feb 2011.

|Crumbled Tim Tam biscuits|
After I've crumbled the tim tam biscuits, I added cream cheese to it.
|Jared helped to roll the crumbled biscuits.|
At the end, I did not bring these cake pops to Jared's Yamaha school concert as I do not have small plastic to individually wrapped these cake pops.

Jared has a sensitive nose. His nose will bleed every now and then, especially at night just before his bed time. This has caused much inconvenience and disturbance to his sleep.
I used to have nose bleeding too, especially during my pregnancy period in 2006/2007, which is common for pregnant women. However, I still had my nose bleeding after given birth to Jaden. It was very scary to see blood flow from the nose and all the tissue papers full with blood.
My sister in-law, Jaydie recommended me to drink lotus root juice. I tried and the taste was awful. The miracle is my nose bleed stopped. I hardly have nose bleeding now, except when I was in Hangzhou during spring time where the air was dry. I had since forgotten about nose bleeding and lotus root juice.
When we went back to Segamat for Cheng Meng, Jared stayed overnight at Jaydie's house. Jared had nose bleeding again. Jaydie advised me, again, to let Jared drinks lotus root juice. I remembered the awful taste of the juice and worry that Jared may not drink it. Jaydie advised me to add honey to give some sweet taste to the juice.
On Monday, after dinner, we blended lotus root and added honey to the milky look juice. I explained to Jared that the lotus root will stop his nose bleeding. He obediently drank the one third glass of the lotus root juice and didn't complain much about the taste of the juice, except for the funny face look after he drank it.
It has been five days now and so far so good, there's no nose bleeding from Jared.
