IPEX Edible Architecture Competition 2009

Here's the update for the recent competition I've join, the IPEX Edible Architecture Competition. It was held at Sabah Trade Centre, Likas on the 14th March. Our group, which consist of Samantha, Jane, Eileen and of course moi decided to make The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. So we've been doing this 5 days or sort before the competition or you can say....finished it within only 5 days *sigh* The same quote, too much things for too lil' time. Guess I'll just shut my mouth (not literally :P) and present to ya'll the pictures ey? So.....PICTURES TIME! XD

The process of making our babylon :D

And the preparation continued following by Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Didn't really help them out on Wednesday, well for a lil while only cos' I was sick & absent to school on the Thursday. So, sorry guys! Eheh. So went sleepover at Sam's residence on the Friday where we stayed up late to finish up our Babylon cos the competiton is on the next day. Let the pictures talk again shall we? XD

Outside the kitchen. DOUBLE messy. Thanks Aunty Ju for letting us do the project in her house! Appreciate much.

The DOUGH with some beans, errr susu kacang beans.

Our still-under-construction Babylon

Used almost 20 packets of Tiger Biscuits

We had to use books to tahan the biscuits cos' they were about to collapse due to unstable matters. hahaha. Well, the biscuits masuk angin bah.

Painted the brocolli red using the colouring for decorations

Aunty Jennifer rocks! (Eileen's mom) Very supportive mom. She stayed up late with us.
Nicole & moi played with the dough to make it like a huge cupcake. Isn't it cute? Ngehehe just to kill the sleepyness :D You need something fun when staying up that late okay?
Nicooooooleeeeee~~ :)
boredom~ You can see how serious was Eileen in the pic. Good job XD
It's edible yo! haha made by one and only Nicole Michael :D

busy touching up our babylon, crowded kan? everyone's there :D

As you can see, there's a 'pond' . We boiled the jelly up & add some blue colouring. & Wala! You have a blueish pond~~~ :)

Final product! :D THE HANGING GARDENS OF BABYLON by The Builders

Went there by van, and thanks Sam for that. We reached there at 1pm and our vege started to wilt already :( hmph. Not to mention the judging time was at 3pm. Freak. Results was at 5 ++ pm. We nearly rotted there, seriously. Went to Likas Square to kill the time and went back at 4-ish. We saw Teacher, I mean SIR Brian with his friend also. LOL. Puan Pang was there too! Ahaha didn't expect that she would turn up :)

Overall, it was fun & exhausting and this is once in lifetime experience you can have. Builing up a structure out of ONLY food. Woooh it was hard. I want that damn certificate! :( Just like what Eileen said, eventhough we didn't win but the konwledges and experiences gained matters most :) I wanna thank Sam, Jane & Eileen for making up The Builder and all parents' support throughout the whole process till the competition :DDD I had the greatest time working with them. Love ya'll loads:)
