It’s my boy’s birthday today and yet, we’re not around to celebrate it with him due to some undesirable last minute changes made to the trip. Poor him! :(
Boy1 is sensitive and sweet, too sweet sometimes. Grin. I remember when i was feeling down a couple of weeks ago.. he said, “I rather you’re angry with me than being sad like this. At least, when you’re angry, you’re not so sad. You’re just angry. Seeing how sad you are now made me sad too, mom”. Then, he continued, “Why not i make you angry now? That way, you won’t be sad anymore?”. LOL!
When he got to know that we will not be around during his birthday, he was a little upset. Still, he quietly told me that his ultimate birthday wish is for the husband and i to have a fantastic time in Japan, Like a Honeymoon, he said. He requested, Mom.. do check out the hot spring for me please and my eyes twinkled a little. Little did he know that we will indeed be at the onsen on his birthday! I’m so gonna surprise him with short videos which i will send over on today. :)
So yeah, this Blueberry Cheesecake post is specially dedicated to my firstborn, who loves me so much so that it pains me when i fail to reciprocate (physically) sometimes. Bad mom, i am. I am.
Why blueberry cheesecake?
Because my mom loves cheesecake.
She was staying at my place for about a week when i decided i wanted to bake her something she loves. Usually, the only bakes that i can tabao back to her is butter cakes, which can withstand rough journey. She ever requested for cheesecake but i told her that it wasn’t possible. When she got to know that i was gonna bake her a blueberry cheesecake, she was as pleased as punch. :)))))
for 8″ cake
Digestive biscuits 140g
Butter, melted 70g
Finely ground the biscuit. Pour warm butter over biscuit. Toss well to coat mixture with butter. Press firmly into an even layer on the bottom of pan. Refrigerate for an hour.
500g cream cheese
110g castor sugar
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp lemon zest
3 large eggs
30g homemade yogurt/ whipping cream
zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp cornstarch
1. Beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Beat in flour until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing until just incorporated. Gradually add yogurt or whipping cream and lastly, add all other ingredients until well mixed.
2. Bake at 150 (depending on your oven) in water bath for 1 hour 30 minutes or till the edge of filling is set and centre is slightly wobbly. Cool on rack for 5 minutes.
3. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and cornstarch and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and stir in lemon juice and cornstarch mixture. Stir until the sauce thickens slightly. Cover to keep warm and set aside.
Please, please let your blueberry sauce to sit around, cooled and thickened before pouring it over. I didn’t have the luxury to wait at that time i shot these photos as we were rushing out so, i didn’t wait and poured it straight. Result? Watery sauce which isn’t so pleasant to the eyes. :(
The blueberry sauce is more than enough to cover the whole cake.
So, what do you do with leftover?
Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce of course!!! *wink*
You know i love cheesecakes. Of course i’ll say, SO GOOD!!!! Hahaa!
Mummy loved it so much that she had 3 slices on that very day, followed by 1 more slice the next day. Dang, it’s truly a joy to bake for good people who enjoy your goodies hor? :)
Hopefully boy1 is having a great time with his grandparents and aunt… & brothers… Gawwdd, i feel so awful as i draft this pre-Japan. SO AWFUL!!!! :`(
Nope, not a food post unfortunately though i’d love to make pretzel one day. :)
I used to be quite chillax over my practice. It was always an on & off affair for this mother of 3.
I started practicing at a not so tender age of 21 with my mother (in law). She’s really flexible and still is at the age of 60!
Initially, i practiced because i felt the pressure of needing to please her — she was always roping me in to practice with her. We just got acquainted then and of course i needed to get into her good book! HAHA! So every morning, without fail.. both of us will be practicing for an hour, with her coaching me all the way — almost like a private class if you will. Not too long after that, i stopped because i got preggy.
3 years later, boy2 came along. I still didn’t resume my practice. But, I concentrated on cardio exercise instead. I didn’t lose that much weight but what i noticed was, i no longer have a waistline after 2 pregnancies! *horrorsssss* My waistline was like a log! Straight down just like that. It was mortifying! But still, i continued with cardio — kickboxing etc.
For the record, though visibly trimmer, the body was flabby, and not exactly… nice.
When i delivered beepbeep in 2007, i finally signed up for yoga, together with the cardio classes. My love for yoga rekindled. I love yoga! To my (pleasant) surprise, i was one the instructors’ favorites. I often get asked to do demonstration to show the class on the correct postures etc. In 2010, i decided to leave the all woman’s fitness centre. I had a talk with my favourite instructor and he told me that i should totally upgrade myself and so i did.
But i picked the wrong school!
I sillily committed myself to Bikram Yoga for the 12 whole months without even trying out their classes!! What an idiot. Hahahaha! I truly hated Bikram. Bikram made me nauseous. Bikram made me sick. The 90 minute class was a torture. As i like variation, Bikram bored me to tears with its repetitive sequence. Out of the 50 passes i bought, i only utilized a grand total of 20. LOL! Yes, 20 classes for the whole 12 months! That was like less than 2 times a month??? Kekekekeke!
Needless to say, when the last day of 12th month came, i punched the air and screamed, YES! :P
Before i signed on the dotted line with my current school, i tried out 2 other centres. Though pricey, i knew i had to pick this school because as corny as it might sound, the heart told me to. 14 months later, i still love practicing at my current school. In fact, recently, i got so serious over my practice that i am there at least 3 times a week!
Since last November, i got inspired to take photos of my poses to see the improvement. So. The above 9 photos… were taken sometime last year, between November to January 2013. Let’s see how much i can improve by end of this year yeah? ;)
As for the waistline, well.. let’s just say, i’m not complaining though an even tinier waistline is preferred. The secret? Plenty of twisting poses!! *wink*
Disclaimer : i was never a trained gymnast or ballerina.. so, if if can do it, so can you! ;)
