Honeydew Sago Dessert

They say "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade". Mmmm!!! I'll take it with a pinch of salt because lemons (Lemon Tea Loaf) don't fall from the sky anyway, and this tagline has been use once so often until it is so tiring to read about it over and over again. Boring. Neither is honeydew melon (Honeydew Cake) thrown down by god, you still have to pay from your hard earned money (Chocolate Cheesecake, Chocolate Rum Tart & Cream Puff) should you decide to make this Honeydew Sago Dessert. Easily assembled and certainly a fit perfect dessert for the heat wave which can extremely kill us. Moreover, you can made and chilled it (Coconut Grapefruit Jelly, White Fungus Ginkgo Nut,  Pandan Poached Pear & Coconut Mango Jelly) before serving especially when you have guest coming over.,

My family on the other hand like to catch me off-guard. When I feel like lazing around, they insist on coming over. Impossible to tell mum I don't feel like welcoming them because she will flip upside down. So as an obedient daughter, I had to agree. Never mind I was akin a mad cow, trying to cook before they arrive. Thank god I managed. Fried ricefried chicken which is a must before kids also flip-flop and dessert was this Honeydew Sago Dessert. Utmost refreshing!
