It's not the usual sushi maker coz the set consists of moulds of different shapes, like heart and flower shaped ones. There were even instructions on how to make pig sushi, bear sushi and so much more. It's so cute that I wanted to try it right away.
Out of excitement, we planned a Japanese themed party at home. My flatmates aren't really much of Japanese cuisine fan. I think I am the only one who loves it so much that you can leave me in Japan for one month without craving for oily/calorie loaded food such as Pinoy dishes.
Anyway, since I was too excited, I already bought the ingredients for sushi even without looking at the instructions of this sushi maker. I don't usually follow instructions because I believe I'm too smart so I can figure things on my own (Hahah! Joooke! :P ) but when I got home from the supermarket, I realized that this one's too complicated.
Good thing my sushi "students", Lendl and Nheng were patient enough so we were able to pull it off. :) Lendl's 'creativity' was proven when Nheng looked for mangoes (I only bought cucumber, eggs, crabsticks for the filling). Since there were no mangoes, she said, "may peaches pa ata sa ref, pwede na yon." It was such an 'experiment' that became an instant hit coz our flatmates liked it so much. The sweetness of peaches is perfect for the salty taste of eggs and the inexplicable savor of cucumber and crabsticks. :)
Anyway, here goes our product. :)
The following day, while busy Facebooking, Nheng gave me a plastic bag containing these:
Haha! It seems that her first sushi making experience was really that hard. :D
