Recipe for Banana Split

Step 1:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop strawberry ice cream
  • 1 scoop chocolate ice cream
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1 whipped cream
  • some chocolate sauce
  • some strawberry sauce
  • some butterscotch/ caramel sauce
  • 1 tbsp chopped nuts
  • 3 glace cherries
  • 1 ice cream scoop
  • 1 knife
  • 1 tablespoon
  • 1 serving dish

Step 2: Split the banana

Peel away the skin and carefully slice down the length of the banana. Arrange the 2 pieces side by side with a gap in-between on the serving plate

Step 3: Ice cream

Take a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and place it in the centre, over the two banana pieces. Next, put a scoop of chocolate ice cream one side of the vanilla, and then strawberry on the other, running down the length of the banana

Dip the ice cream scoop into a cup of warm water before you dish out the ice cream. This cleans the utensil and also makes the ice cream easier to scoop

Step 4: Sauces

Squeeze a little butterscotch or caramel sauce over the top of the vanilla ice cream,… chocolate sauce over the chocolate ice cream… and lastly strawberry sauce over the strawberry ice cream.

Step 5: Cream

Give the squirty cream can a good shake and hold it upside down. Put a dollop onto each of the ice cream scoops. Be as indulgent as you like!

Step 6: Topping

Sprinkle on some chopped nuts. As a finishing touch place a glace cherry on the very top of each of the 3 scoops.

RE: Encouraging Letter

Dear Nick,

I am writing this letter to you to comfort you for being one of the survivors of the terrible and violent earthquake. Do not feel so sad. Singapore and Taiwan are raising funds to help Japan in financial needs! You must go on! However, radiation in Japan is increasing, you should stay at home to avoid.

When the earthquake happened, many people thought it was a normal one. However, as it did not stop for a few minutes, and books in a bookstore start falling off the shelves; the lamps dangling on the ceiling, ready to drop any moment. Everyone start hiding under the tables; get out of the buildings to an open field for safety.

Death tolls have been increasing every day. Many people were killed in the disaster while many still remain unfound. I hope this would come to an end for good.

Although I have never experienced an earthquake before, I sympathise with you for the destruction of Mother Nature. As I watched from the news, the tsunamis and earthquake destroyed buildings and vehicles everywhere. In one day, the whole piece of land turned into a scrap yard. I cannot understand the feeling of losing your homes and many others with missing family members. The disaster had brought a lot of mishaps in family which I could not do anything to help but to donate as much money as I could.

I am happy for you that you manage to escape safely from the deadly earthquake and I hope your family were unharmed. There are many organisations set up to raise funds for Japan! Be it a few cents or a few thousand dollars, it came directly from their heart.

The days ahead for now may seem bleak, but hand in there! Things will get better! Hopefully the power and water would be restored to affected homes. Stay strong! I know Japan will pull through the ordeal!

Best Regards,
Chua Wen Feng
