Rice Cooker Cakes: Steamed Chocolate Banana Cake

delicious simple Rice cooker cake steamed banana cake

Darling bought me a new toy. The rice cooker that I have been using to cook porridge for Ethan and now Ayden has finally died so he bought me a new one. It comes with a CAKE function so today I excitedly tried to bake a cake using it as my oven at home is rendered unusable for ages. For a mother of two, you’d think that I would have everything in my kitchen but […]

Our Weekend

Shangri-La Putrajaya

This coming weekend is a looooong weekend right? But we won’t be going anywhere. Darling’s siblings have been taking care of their aging parents and they will be going for their own little holidays during that duration of time so Darling told me that we should go back to accompany his parents while his siblings are away as we rarely spent time there. OK.  Darling was very nice though. Eventhough he had to work on […]

Applying Saliva to Mosquito Bites to Relief Itchiness

Mozzie bite

Ayden woke up from his nap all itchy and restless. He kept scratching his legs and when I checked, there were 3 red dots from mosquito bites. Darn. Immediately I applied my saliva onto those dots to stop the itch.  Do you believe it? That applying saliva on mosquito bites will immediately stop the itch? I do as I have been doing that since I got Ethan almost 8 years ago.  When I was younger, […]

Angcle Peoh’s Perfect Char Koey Teow

Angcle Peoh char koey teow

We were in Penang late last year. Wanted to try the asam laksa at Ayer Itam market but did not manage to do so due to the kids spending too much time at the beach. That is what happens when we travel with kids. They prefer to play eventhough I prefer to go out food hunting. Imagine my delight when I read in several blogs about the asam laksa in Ayer Itam being available not […]

Secret Garden @ 1 Utama Upper Roof

Vines at Secret Garden 1 Utama

It is no secret that there is a secret garden in 1 Utama. Located on their upper roof, it is only open to public on weekends and public holidays. I’ve blogged about this Secret Garden in 1 U back in 2010. It is actually my secret hiding place when I needed some peace and tranquility but I’ve not been back there since the arrival of Ayden.  Today, we brought Ayden to check out the Secret […]

Constipation relief : Papaya and corn soup

Papaya and corn soup

Ethan doesn’t eat fruits. If I don’t make him eat enough fiber I’m afraid he’ll get constipated one fine day. What I can do however, is to boil papaya soup for him regularly. He doesn’t know it is papaya soup though because I boiled it with corn and the sweetness of the corn actually camouflage the papaya taste (if any). Papaya is one of the best fruit to eat if you suffer from digestive problems […]

Drawing on walls

Ayden painting

I left him there barely a minute just to go into the kitchen to wash my hands. I came out to see this: Argh! He ‘conteng-ed’ the wall! Reprimanded him and asked him where else he conteng and he steady only show me ALL his ‘artwork’. There were some on the floor too! Why oh why? Big brother Ethan has NEVER, I repeat NEVER vandalized our walls but this little creature did today! Thank goodness […]

Ethan’s Drumming Journey

Drummer Ethan

Ethan first started learning drum in October 2012. He was 5 years old then. And by October 2013, his drum teacher featured him on the cover of his first book ‘Play With Colours’ Volume 1. Through the music school, Ethan got the chance to perform in public. Fast forward to 2015, Ethan is now waiting to sit for his Grade 4 exam somewhere in May or June. And this is one of the exam piece […]

One of Ayden’s favourite hang-out place is at Kids Zone, The Curve.  Kids Zone @ The Curve But today, […]

A fruitful weekend

Malacca baby boom

We were back in my hometown last weekend and it was indeed a fruitful one as we got to meet many of my relatives. My mom’s place is special as most of her siblings live nearby. By nearby I meant they live right behind or next to her. The entire neighbourhood is made up of her siblings except those that sold off their house.  The first relative we met was my mom’s brother’s daughter’s children. […]

Battle of the Sweet Potatoes

Japanese vs Indonesian potatoes

Last weekend while doing our grocery shopping, we saw sampling of some Indonesian sweet potatoes. We tasted it and it was very nice. Sweet and fragrant but then again, don’t all sweet potatoes are sweet? Looking at the price, I just brushed it off and proceeded to get my usual Japanese potatoes that is much cheaper BUT this Darling is a sucker to all these promoters. I don’t understand why. They are not even sweet […]
