Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an

My review on the commissions widgetAs most all of you probably already know, recently a Commissions widget was released to Beta Testers. I've heard a lot of negativity towards this feature, specially because of the 20% that DA takes from the artist's earnings. But I've always thought that before saying anything about any feature on DA I would prefer to test it first, so I recently installed this widget in my profile offering some simple comissions and now that I've had the oppotunity to test it, here is my opinion.My review on the commissions widget2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First, the 20% deduction from your income. Yes I'm not a big fan of it either, in my opinion, the biggest negative of this feature.
I'm not an $admin or a developer and I'm not an economics expert either, so I don't understand the reasons for this deduction, however I know there must be a reason for it besides the obvious that DA needs money to keep itself running. Yes, knowing this doesn't help much, but at

a poem for u, i want to do.all my friends, i'm so glad for u. all i can say, i hope u do too. i'm a bit down, but its fine, all i want is what is mine. and with mine i mean, all i can get. as long as its dry, and hopefully not wet. comissions and requests, i cannot do. i hope its okay, and u forgive me too. i will try my best, and get u all. but i'm not as fast, and neither tall. my internet is a pain, i hope u understand. cause it hates me for real, and i can't hand (handle). it teases me badly, and think its fun. i just want to chase it, and make it run. "screw u bastard" i must have to say. but i can't live without it, so it GOT to stay. i'm too antisocial, and that is the worst. i can feel it hurt, like my chest is to burst. i love my friends, but do u like me? i love u as my buddys, and it will always be. if u want to comment, u r welcome to do, but remember to rime, and i do too ;D this is the last, this is the end. but not as friends, but the rime u just went. have a nice day, and now u know about me, i wa poem for u, i want to do.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Nintendo’s MiiversePrior to E3 starting up, Nintendo has done something unusual for them... they've given us more information about the Wii-U before their press conference! Specifically they've gone over the online capabilities of the Wii-U and how social networking works with it.Nintendo’s Miiverse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nintendo showcased a video of a guy struggling to beat a Zombie boss. He uses the Wii-U Game Pad to look up other users who have had trouble with it. He even posts a note saying he's stuck. His friend sees the note on his mobile device and calls him, but instead he decides to contact another Wii-U user using the built in camera to communicate with video. He talks to an elderly grandpa who tells him how to beat the Zombie boss and instantly he goes right back into the game and succeeds.
Cheesy though it was, it showcased a number of cool features. The first of course being the fact there will be message boards surrounding specific games which you can communicate on, share screen shots, post questions and answers, etc. The second
You Should Be Reading Kamala Khan (aka: Ms Marvel)If you haven’t heard yet, Marvel is branching out quite a bit lately and introducing a bunch of new characters to their roster. One of whom is a Muslim teenage girl who takes up the mantle of Ms Marvel.You Should Be Reading Kamala Khan (aka: Ms Marvel)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Necessary Background Info
If you’re like me and don’t follow 100% what’s going on in DC or Marvel comics right now, some of the events in the story come across unexplained. So here’s a quick little explanation for the main reason of how Kamala gains her powers.
During the end of the “Infinity” storyline, a Terrigen Bomb was detonated in Earth's atmosphere during the Inhumans' fight with Thanos, releasing Terrigen Mist upon the planet. This caused anyone who was a descendant of an “Inhuman” to develop powers of their own.
In Ms Marvel #1 (part of the All-New Marvel NOW! Point One series), we follow the exploits of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager born and raised in New Jersey

It's over when I say it's over.Hello! I'm back. You may have already come to that conclusion when I posted page 13 of Moff and Flame on friday and subsequently stabbed a majority of you in the feels and bathed in your tears and sobs of "NUUUUUUUUUUU!!" and "WHHY!!?" and (my favourite) "YOU F**K!".It's over when I say it's over.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For that I hollowly apologise, because, like the nature of the comic, the pain was unavoidable, but there is still more to come. I'm still in the process of torturing myself, my characters and most of you. There were a few comments where people assumed this was the last page in the story and I just want to assure you it's not, don't worry, I'll let you know with a big THE END at the end of it. Sorry in advance, but thank you all for for your comments and your emotions and numerous icons of crying. They make this worthwhile.
I had a lovely time in the Pyrenees last week! I've been so busy since I've been back though, but the good type of busy. Hopefully if all goes well I'll have another page to you by this evening.

First off, we just wanted to say that our hearts go out to the friends and families of those poor kids (and adults). What happened today was a terrible, terrible thing. I have no idea what went through that person's head that made him want to do that, but our deepest condolences go out to those involved in the shooting.
Please be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
And yes, we are back to giving away a free key. This week we will be giving away two free keys to one person. The catch is, you have to give away the second key to someone else! A friend, a family member, etc. Because it's the holidays and giving is a wonderful thing
