His name is RED



hehehe i have the patience of a monkey when trying to sew. Awful sewing hahah... at least i had fun making him.. *cracks up laughing*

THAT"S IT!!!!!!!!!! NO MORE SEWING THIS YEAR... i had enough lol






sometimes you just got to do something silly even if it's a little embarassing.

Bit tired now... I"m sitting here trying to figure out what to do about Chinese New Year which is on the 7th of February... We're having my chinese friend and her husband over to celebrate next weekend and we are going to have steamboat for dinner.

What is a steamboat??? Well... it's basically a pot powered by gas or electric which has soup stock in it. And the entire table is filled with a variety of fresh raw seafood, meats and vegetables. The idea is to put the food you want to eat into the soup stock and cook it and then enjoy the food with a variety of yummy sauces. Pretty interactive and fun. I googled 'steamboat' and found a picture. http://oz.tranzfusion.net/Recipes/SteamBoat.htm By the end of the meal, you get the yummiest soup ever from cooking all the food. Not too sure where it originated from. China? Mongolia? The Koreans also have their spicy version probably with kimchi...

Your little "Red" is gorgeous.

That steamboat sounds delicious, sort of like a fondue, with broth, from what I understand.

It's funny, I caught a half hour of Survivor last night (haven't watched this one at all) and I think this is what the reward meal was (served on a section of the Great Wall too!).
