Vanilla Pannacotta with Raspberry Coulis

This post came a wee bit late... not actually late, late! Just over a week after Mothers' Day celebration.

'Mothers and Daughters' ~ the movie, have you seen it?
I'd avoid (like a plague LOL) any movie that has many plots, for example: Love Actually or something similar. I prefer an easy to follow, single plot movie without trying to figure, who's who, and what's what...
Movie time is supposed to be relaxing, not thinking!!! Agree? ;P

This indie movie was an exception! It has many plots but I sat through the whole length, without me dozing off mid-way.
*Spoiler Alert*

The movie was based on four families or to be precise 4 pairs of mother-daughter.
The plots that makes me want to reach out for Kleenex was about this mother-daughter that was in estranged relationship, the mother has to tip-toe and be careful what NOT to say her daughter. Whatever she said, the daughter took it in the negative light!

Another Kleenex moment ~ was about the daughter's relationship with her Alzheimer mom. This was touching too...  she was afraid to lose her mom, wanting to preserved that beautiful image of her mom but at the same time, she was too busy with her own life to care for her mom.

Raspberry Coulis

Sometimes we forgot who had our back all the time since the day we were born.
She is the one who had to go through the excruciating pain to push us out into this world. She is the one who spent many sleepless nights, making sure we are warm, comfortable and not hungry. She is our Florence Nightingale when we were sick. She is always by the sideline cheering and encouraging... She is the one who put her children before herself and everything else.

And yet, when we grew up, we put her on the sideline. We took her for granted, we conveniently forgot that she was always there for us. We forgot that she was our first teacher, the one who taught us to walk, talk and almost everything we learn about life, and yet we stand proud, thinking we knew better!!
We are proud to have many friends yet we forgot who was our first true friend... 'friend' who stick by us through thick and thin. We found new love and we forgot hers :(...

We only have ONE mother (and father... more ramblings about father when Father's day is here :D ), lets celebrate mom in every way we can, lets show her our love and appreciation, everyday if we can... spare some time to be with her.
Our days and hers are numbered...and one day she'll no longer be by our side.
I miss mine much! She's in better place since 2 years ago :(...

Enough Kleenex moment!!!

Vanilla Panna Cotta with raspberries coulis was my Mother's Day treat from my favourite daughter in the whole wide world ;P.
An ardent fan of Masterchef and My Kitchen Rule, she was over the moon when she tipped her panna cotta onto the plate... it jiggled.
This is what I learned from Masterchef... panna cotta should be jiggly :) was her happy remark.
I was happier... that I get to eat beautiful, rich, silky dessert and I didn't have to clean the kitchen after.. ;P

It was executed to suit my taste bud (less sugar), with whatever ingredients we have in our fridge section and pantry. The words in the recipe below was 98% hers...
but photographs are all mine :P
