Milo Agar Agar

I slept really badly last night.  Somewhere in the neighbourhood, a dog was barking way into the night.  I guess hubby by now is used to such barks but for me, I am still coping with it. 

Then I was hit with cramps again.  It must be the bad sitting posture I had yesterday while researching on the internet.

Anyway, this morning, we were blessed with awesome weather.  A great morning for my boy to do his cross country event in school.  Yes, he was among the top 10th and gotten a medal!

For me, I volunteered my service, selling ice popsicle!  Nice to be connected once again with these group of mommies and daddies.  These days, it is a common sight to see daddies being involved in such events.  Awesome isn't it?  Some days, I wished my hubby can find time to do so too but unfortunately this is not the case.

I came home slumped, totally drained.  Trying to nap but since it is not my habit, I couldn't.

With such fine cooling weather, I decided to make some Milo Agar Agar for my girl.  She loves Milo!  Always craving for Milo Dinosaur that she will prepare herself.

It sure been a while since I last done jelly.  This recipe was tried out way back in 2005.    I seriously had no idea whether it came from me or taken from somewhere.  If so, I am sorry that I didn't credit you back then and till now I still don't know who is the original.
