More Friends Have Arrived!

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Greetings, Keroleen here. I really appreciate those who are helping me and giving me encouragement. As of the moment, Baku is looking for my bracelet. I hope he finds it soon. Also, there are new residents in SanrioTown! I’ll be making nice goodies for all of them when I feel happier. I don’t want to make now because my recipes might not taste good when I’m feeling down…

Anyway, cheers to the new residents! There’s Cinnamoroll and his gang, give them a wave! ^_^ They’re so nice to even help in the search for my bracelet. Pochacco’s also here! Don’t worry, he doesn’t bite. ^_~ Uh-oh…Kuromi’s going to be annoyed since My Melody is also here. Last but not the least, Hello Kitty!!! Please welcome them all!

Something is Missing…

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

I went to Kuromi’s place awhile ago to give the cake I made for her. I didn’t want to stay long since she wasn’t feeling well so I gave the cake to Baku and left in a hurry.

As I was jumping home I noticed that the bracelet Keroppi gave me was missing from my wrist!!! *panic mode* I quickly retraced my steps, from our house to Kuromi’s doorstep and back, but I couldn’t find the bracelet anywhere!!! *cries* I also checked my room, the kitchen and even the bathroom, but my precious bracelet is nowhere to be found. *sob hiccup*

That bracelet means a lot to me. Keroppi gave it to me when we made-up. *sob* How will I tell him that I lost the bracelet…? *croak sob*

Please, please, has anyone seen my bracelet? It looks like this:

Keroppi and Keroleen’s Kitchen: Flourless Chocolate Cake

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

I haven’t posted recipes in awhile. Heehee. Anyway, this recipe is a thank you gift for Kuromi. I hope she’ll like it, it’s low calorie after all.

Ingredients:

7 1/4-ounces dark chocolate (65% to 70% cocoa), room temperature & chopped into pieces
1/2 cup butter, cut into small cubes
6 large
eggs, room temperature and separated
1/3 cup
sugar
1/3 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Powdered sugar, for garnish

Procedure:

Cake1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large metal bowl set over a pan of hot, not simmering, water (bottom of the bowl should not touch the water), combine the chocolate and butter and let stand, stirring occasionally, until smooth and melted. (The mixture can be melted in the microwave on high power, stirring every 15 seconds. Remove when there are still a few lumps of chocolate and stir until fully melted).

In a medium-size bowl, combine the 6 egg yolks, sugar, and Splenda. Add the melted chocolate/butter mixture and vanilla extract and stir to combine. IMPORTANT: Be sure to add the beaten eggs to the chocolate mixture and not the chocolate to the eggs. This will insure a moist airy texture.

In a large bowl, whip the 6 egg whites until firm. Add 1/3 of the whites to the chocolate mixture and stir to lighten the batter. Gently fold in the remaining egg whites until just blended and no streaks remain. Finish by using a rubber spatula to ensure that the heavier mixture at the bottom is incorporated.

Scrape the batter into a non-stick 10" springform pan and smooth top with the spatula.

Bake approximately 20 minutes or until just set (do not overcook). Remove from oven and let cool.

To Unmold:  Run a thin metal spatula around the side of the cake and release the sides of the springform pan. The chocolate cake will store up to 2 weeks refrigerated. Do not freeze because it changes the texture.

FlourlessChocCake2When ready to serve, bring to room temperature. Cut into narrow wedges with a thin sharp knife that has been dipped in hot water. Dust with sifted powdered sugar before serving.

Makes 12 to 16 servings.

A New Beginning

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

easter donutsI woke up this morning and was surprised to see Keroleen by my window holding a basket…full of Easter DONUTS!!! But that was not the only thing that caught my attention…Keroleen was crying as she hopped through the window and gave the basket to me.

"I’m sorry," she said. "I didn’t mean to hurt you. I didn’t mean to throw things at you. I want the two of us to be together again…just like before…no more arguing. I’ll try to open up to you more. I need you. Please love me again."

I wiped the tears from her eyes and said, "Stop crying, I’m also to blame here… I was very mean, too. I should have been more confident of our relationship. Ribbit!"

I got a small blue box hidden under my pillow and gave it to her. The box contains this:

We hugged one another. Today’s Easter Sunday, a symbolic day that means new life. It is also a new beginning for both of us, with a lot of helpful memories and lessons from the past.

Keroleen’s Thoughts

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

I really have a problem expressing myself. Why can’t I tell Keroppi how I’m feeling right now. I know he’ll understand, but why can’t I say the words? Am I afraid?

I have growled, yelled and threw things at him. It was very unlady-like of me. I remember last Valentine’s season, we also argued and it was  because I never listened. I always try to close my ears when he speaks or cry out loud or just run out of the room.

Everything that we argue about is due to the fact that I don’t open up to him or not listen to him. I should have told him from the very beginning that I was making a welcome gift for the new boy and not quietly drag him to the kitchen as if I’m on a secret mission.

I think I need help to boost up my confidence and self-esteem, and I need Keroppi for that…

Keroppi’s Thoughts

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

I love Keroleen, I really do. I know she’s just being friendly to the new boy, but I couldn’t help feeling jealous…I always tried to tell myself that I’m the one she loves, but that bad feeling always creeps up on me. >.<

As for the pretty lady issue, what other people commented were true, that I was rubbing it on Keroleen, especially the desktop wallpaper and the staring part.  It’s like my way of letting her feel how I was feeling. I know it was the meanest thing to do and I’m really sorry for that.

I think I need help to boost up my confidence and self-esteem, and I need Keroleen for that…

Jump! Stomp!

angry keroleen HRMMMM!!!!

That was pretty annoying. I’m so mad! He ate all of Hiiragi’s gift for me! Not only that, he used Kurumi’s picture as his desktop wallpaper! >.<  ZRIBBIT!

Keroleen: *picks up a rock and throws it at the pond*

Gruff Voice: *gurgle hem hem* Watch it Keroleen! *gurgle gurgle*

Keroleen: *gasp* Ganta?

Ganta: The one and only. What’s the big idea throwing rocks around? Good thing I know how to swim.

Keroleen: *looks down* I’m sorry. I forgot that you were still hiding…

Ganta: *cough cough* You don’t look so good? What happened?

Keroleen: Well…Keroppi is picking on me. He’s making such a big deal about me admiring the new boy in SanrioTown and now is staring at some pretty lady from who-knows-where! It’s so annoying! I can’t stand it! *hops around*

Ganta: Whoa there! Take it easy. *hem hem* New boy? Pretty lady? I don’t know what’s going on but is this a case of jealousy? I think you two really need to talk and stop those stomping and throwing rocks around.

Keroleen: ZRIBBIT!!! *glare*

Ganta: *hops a few steps back* O_O Scary…I guess it’s time for me to embrace the real world once more…I think I’ll talk to Keroppi first…I also need to get the stories straight *ahem cough* I think I swallowed a trout…*gack cough*

Frog vs Frog

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

*sigh* White Day is over and Keroleen and I didn’t accomplish anything at all. We didn’t have any heart to heart talk yet. I immediately fell asleep yesterday when we ran away from an angry pretty lady…

Oh yeah…the pretty lady. I kinda understand why Keroleen has a crush on Hiiragi…humans really look wonderful…Ribbit! I’d better think rationally about this. I don’t want to jeopardize our relationship, we’re already having trouble as it is…

Also, I just realized, Keroleen is scary when she’s jealous / angry. She reacted differently compared to how I reacted when I found out that she has a crush on the new boy.

Here’s our morning drama:

Keroppi: PRETTY LADY GOOOONE!!!! :( RIBBIT! *sniff* :(

Keroleen: *glares at Keroppi and throws chocolate gifts at him*

Keroppi: WAAAAAAAAH!!!!! *chocolates land in Keroppi’s mouth* *chomp chomp* Hmmm…those were pretty good. That pretty boy Hiiragi sure has sophisticated taste.

Keroleen: Hrmm!!!

Keroppi: Ribbit! What did I do?

Keroleen: *points at Kurumi’s picture being used as the laptop’s desktop wallpaper then at empty chocolate box*

Keroppi: *sweatdrop* O_K, so now I’m the bad frog…when it was you who started staring and making those secret gifts for the new boy!

Keroleen: Hmph! *and storms out of the house*

Jealousy is a really scary feeling, but an angry lady frog is scarier. This one also makes weird noises when trying to reason out. No words heard, but it seems she has said a lot to me. =_= Keroleen and I should really have a talk soon. I don’t want to prolong this conflict anymore.

Confused Keroppi

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Pfft…White Day…I don’t feel like celebrating it. Besides, I already gave a gift to Keroleen last Valentine’s Day (westernized tradition). Ribbit! I still feel bad about what happened the other day.

Hmph! Cake…that must be Keroleen’s late Valentine’s gift for Hiiragi…..LATE VALENTINE’S GIFT?!?! OH MY GOODNESS!!! If that’s for real, could that mean she likes him….? :(

@_@ This is bad! I’m thinking of so many things. I should snap out of this. Deep inside, I know that Keroleen loves only me and she’s just being friendly to the new boy, but what is this other feeling creeping from inside me? I don’t like it at all…

Look at me! See how my emotions drastically change. A moment ago I was angry, now I’m depressed. I feel so confused now.

KEROLEEN!!! T-T

*sigh* Love is so mysterious. It brings both happy and sad moments.

Cake Madness

Monday, March 10th, 2008

*drinks milk*

Just when I thought it will be a great day, everything fell apart because of a crush. Here’s how it all started:

I was cleaning my room when Keroleen knocked on the door and invited me to cook in the kitchen. Ribbit! It’s rare of her to suddenly invite me to her special territory. We usually cook together if there’s a special occasion, but most of the time she wants to be alone when cooking as if she doesn’t want anybody to witness the magic that she does on her menu.

So I followed her to the kitchen and saw all the ingredients for a cake! "Yummy!" I thought and gladly helped her make the cake. As the minutes ticked by, I kept on asking her about the cake but her answer was only a soft giggle. "Hmm…strange reaction. She’s usually talkative on those rare cook-together-moments," I said to myself. "Oh well, she must be concentrating."

After awhile, the oven timer stopped and she suddenly jumped with her kitchen mittens ready and effortlessly brought the hot pan to the table. She then worked her magic on decorating the cake. Her hands were so fast, from an ordinary chocolate cake came a really marvelous decorated one. Complete with freshly whipped mallow icing and candied fruits on top, but what shocked me the most was the message written at the center of the cake…

WELCOME TO SANRIOTOWN, HIIRAGI!

My jaw dropped! Ribbit! Why would she make a cake for the new boy in town without telling me?!?! O_O

I was still wide-eyed when she kissed me on the cheek as she packed the cake in a green box. Then she left, off to deliver the cake to the new comer.

I’m back in my room now. Sadly writing about my sad experience. I have mixed feelings now, I know it’s only crush but I still feel jealous. I don’t know how I will react if I see Hiiragi. He’s a pretty boy with nice hair and…I don’t have hair to start with…

*gulps a whole glass of milk*

Ribbit! She made cake for him…=_=

…she didn’t tell me it was for him in the beginning…

*slumps on the keyboard*

Zzzzzzzz…….
