According to many source this is the traditional KIWI DIP recipe.
1 can of nestle reduced cream + 1 packet of Magge onion soup mix + 1tsp vinegar (or lemon juice).

Honestly? I like mine but it will cost little more.

Whipped cream cheese block (or spreadable one)
+ chopped cold smoked salmon bits (almost to be minced)
+ lemon juice
+ Very finely chopped shallot 
+ pinch of dill
+ bit of salt & pepper for your taste

This is a miniature size Japanese maple tree.  Its hight is about 50cm (we keep it small) and each leave is about (+ -) 4cm.  I remember, it s usually start with lime green but as you see, it's quite eye catching red.   

Rain makes a colour looks more vivid.

And Wondering

My tiny lettuce patch was cleaned and tidied last week.  The empty spaces now have red lettuce, marigolds, soy, and one more kind of seeds I can't remember.  I'm not sure, though, how many of the them remain in tact after the torrential rain on the weekend.  Fingers, toes and eyes crossed!
