Deco Choco~

Hey guys. Long time no blog. Working life has officially made me into a routine-follower --> 8 to 5, with a merciful hour for a quick jog, and then home for shower and sometimes dinner, then quick glance online, and then bed by 10pm. Weekends are like an overseas holiday --> I look forward to them as much as I would have of a trip to Singapore during my uni days...

Much as I hate admitting, I just can't find contentment while working in the hospital. Especially now that I'm doing clinical. I just keep getting these thoughts that I'm an 'extra' in the ward --> totally pointless for a pharmacist to be there, except for checking out the list A/B/C drugs before the yellow scripts are sent for order, and device and discharge counseling. Other than that, I feel like I'm always in the way of either the doctors or nurses. T-T The only way to make your presence useful is to have knowledge at your fingertips so that you may provide correct answers to every question directed to you; whether it's stock availability, drug doses and frequencies, or antibiotics coverage. Gawd... Absolutely STRESSFUL!

I just lack that inquisitive nature, pin-point sharpness and enthusiasm, all core requirements for surviving in the medical field. T-T

Anyways, I'm supposed to be looking up info on some boring stuff like how to convert gliclazide MR dose to plain gliclazide. But weekends are just too precious to be wasted on such nuisance. Moreoever, I'm sick of facing stupid medical stuff for straight 5 days. So let's look at some eye candy.

Have you heard of Deco Choco? Apparently, this is the term used by the Japs for chocolate/candy decorating, whether real or fake (correct me if I'm wrong). So I was browsing some blogs and then I saw this...

THAT is actually edible. The. Whole. Thing. Can. Be. EATEN.

So can this :

These amazing candy slabs can be gifted as edible greeting cards! The recipient would die of joy because it would be a sweet bonus for the stomach too! :D Meiji, a Japanese confectionery giant even described this fun fad on its website with tantalizing examples :

Maybe I'll try making this one of these days...

Wah... J think during valentine's these would be everywhere. :P Heard that during that time, there'll be lots of chocolate/candy making kits for sale in supermarkets and stores. :P How's your trip to Osaka? Sure had lots of fun. :)

I usually hate getting cards (because, let's face it, they're just fancy packaging for money, and without money, they're meaningless), but if they were like this, I'd never complain again!

I love the decorated chocolate bar on the top!

It looks like more like jewelry than food.

Has anyone else seen the Pocky you make at home (with sliced bread) and decorate? Those look cute, but I imagine they're not too tasty...Making a chocolate treat like these would be great though!
