green tea ice cream, originally uploaded by pearlyn83.

I love green tea ice cream but have never found one which would give me the ultimate “feel”…not until a friend brought us to this jap restaurant in Sydney. It was in my mind the most ideal way to serve green tea ice cream – vanilla ice cream topped with green tea sauce and a dollop of red bean paste. Prior to this, all the green tea ice cream I’ve had somehow or other would have a sort of icy feel to it. Call me picky, but ice CREAM should be creamy. If it’s icy, it might as well be called green tea sorbet or granita. Green tea ice cream serve the way it was served in Sydney was the best because the blend of sweet vanilla ice cream with the bittersweet taste of green tea sauce was PERFECT! Creamy, sweet but yet retains the bitter sweet taste of green tea.

When I successfully made my vanilla ice cream, I decided to make a bottle of green tea sauce to top it. I told CY it was the best way to have green tea ice cream but he was really apprehensive and thought I might have been a bit too arrogant in promoting my own food. After he tried it, he had nothing but praises – he couldn’t help but agree it was the best green tea ice cream he’s ever had.


  • Green tea powder
  • Caster sugar
  • Double cream
  • Vanilla ice cream

I just want to apologise to those of you who’ve left a comment on my blog but have not seen it approved. Being new to this whole blogging business, I didn’t realise that there was a spam comment filter built in. Accidentally today, I stumbled upon it and only then did I realise that the spam filter has flagged some of your comments. And since I only found out today, a lot of the comments have been erased permanently as the filter will only store them for 15 days and then they’ll be deleted forever! I’m really, really sorry! I wasn’t being rude or anything…just being “a frog in the well” (katak di bawah tempurung) – this is a malay proverb which means one who is behind times and does not keep up with current affairs very well. Guess, I’ve proven I’m a technology and Internet idiot and would really sincerely like to apologise for those of you who’ve left a comment but never got posted. If you don’t mind, please feel free to add your comments again, or ask any questions and I promise to check my spam filter from now onwards!

In addition, you’ll also notice I haven’t been blogging much and as frequently as before. This is because I’m really busy with my CA exams and can’t afford the time to. *sob sob* I don’t really have a life till Dec so will be looking forward to sharing with you guys then!
