White Chocolate Sponge Cake with Fresh Cream and Strawberries
(yeh yeh shut up you’re right that’s Alannah Hill tissue paper on the table)

So unfair how our offices in China get a week off for CNY  :(( which also means we have to do more work over here as well :((

Anyhoo my family doesn’t celebrate Chinese New Year … for obvious reasons but Helen’s family invited us over for dinner at her place and omg we had a FEAST of Lobsters, two Whole Fish (farmed themselves), Chicken, Pork and more Lobster .
Prior to that we had a Ping Pong match at Jase’s place (losers get hit with a Nerf gun), but even before that I started doing some Valentine’s baking for them…
