Little Chefs: Onde-Onde

If you have had the opportunity to dine with me especially during hi-tea buffet, you’ll know that I always, ALWAYS, eat onde-onde first. I love the feeling of the melted palm sugar that floods my mouth when bitten into. But good onde-onde is rather a rare find these days. The ones I ate are mostly just flour with very little gula melaka filling inside. What do you do when you are craving for one of your […]

Thank goodness I know of a simple recipe to make murtabak the easy and hassle-free way. We call it Murtabak Popiah. Murtabak Popiah Ingredients: 100gm minced chicken […]

Resipi Khas Bulan Puasa: Ayam Percik Pressure Cooker

As you have viewed in many of our past videos, Lil’ Chef Ayden had been using our rice cooker to cook a lot. Though the rice cooker does wonders, it takes a longer time to heat up especially when Ayden needs to saute and stir fry stuffs. Hence we decided to get a multi-cooker for him.  We got the new PHILIPS All-in-One Pressure Cooker as we read rave reviews over it online. It functions as a […]

Learning Mandarin: Ayden’s Reading Progress @ 3Y9M

Ayden has been attending Mandarin enrichment class for over a month now. This has totally changed our routine and I am still trying to adjust having to go to bed earlier at night so that we can wake up early for his class. This also means I now have less time to work on my blog and it kind of driving me crazy a little but it’s okay. I’ll find my way to make this work […]

Since our Muslim friends are observing the holy month of Ramadan, the dish we’ll be sharing today is one that is popular during the fasting month – Roti John Sardin. Roti John is an omelette sandwich. Meat is usually added but we prefer to use sardine since my mom has been making it this way for us since young. This hassle […]

Cook with Ayden: Sichuan Ma Po Tofu

Over the weekend, Ayden cooked something that got him sweating buckets. What is it that he dished out that made him sweat? It is his first time cooking Sichuan food – Ma Po Tofu. As we all know, Sichuan cuisine is well known for their bold and fiery flavours resulting from the use of garlic and Sichuan chili peppers but that did not deter Ayden from trying. He dished out this Ma Po Tofu the ‘cheat’ […]

Cook with Ayden: Sweet Potato in Gula Melaka dessert

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carotenes. We need carotenes as our body converts it into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for good eye vision and healthy skin; especially beneficial for school-going children. I try to include sweet potatoes into the boys’ diet as often as possible. Sometimes they eat it steamed on its own but at times when we have more time to spare, I’ll prepare this delicious Sweet Potato in Gula Melaka drink for […]

To The Dentist We Go Again

If you have been following our progress, you’ll know that Ayden has been to the dentist numerous times as his teeth are very fragile and chips off easily. He had filling done on his teeth a couple of times but some eventually dropped off.  Last weeked we were at the dentist again.  This time Ayden needed to get only one filling done, thank goodness for that.  Since Ayden was done rather quickly, the Daddy took advantage […]

Ayden’s Audition

I received an invitation on Friday night to bring Ayden over for an audition for a local Kids Talk Show today. They were scouting for kids aged 3 to 8 years old. I believe it will be a good experience for Ayden as he has never attended an audition before so I agree to it. I am also eager to see Ayden’s reaction to all these.  Today, we woke up as usual, got dressed and […]

Bake with Ayden: Rice Cooker Cheesecake

My family loves cheesecake a lot but we’ve never baked one ourselves as we don’t have an oven. We came across a rice cooker cheesecake recipe online recently and got excited to try it out. The only problem is, the recipe from Dingo Food is not in English and when I clicked on the translated version, it requires the use of FOUR DOGS! I reckon it will be such a hassle to catch 4 dogs. Moreover, […]

Paint with Ayden: The Benefits of Painting for Children

Being home-schooled, one of the activities I frequently do with Ayden at home is painting. Painting provides endless benefits to children. Even myself as an adult find painting therapeutic. Here are some of the benefits of painting for children: Hand-Eye Coordination – This is a very important skill at their age; to be able to coordinate their hand movements at par with their vision. It may sound easy to us but for young children, practice makes […]

Cook with Ayden: Dhal Curry

Today Lil’ Chef Ayden will be cooking Dhal Curry. Dhal Curry has always been the boys’ favourite whenever we eat Roti Canai so today I thought, why not guide him to cook it himself? The heat level of Dhal Curry can be adjusted according to your preference. If your kid can’t tolerate spicy stuffs, then go low on the chili or you may omit it altogether. Dhal is simply the Indian word for lentils. I […]

Fun time for the boys

This is a delayed post of the recent week-long school holidays. I only got the time to blog about it today as I wasn’t feeling well the past week.  Kids these days are very lucky. Malls in major cities especially the Klang Valley will always have some fun activities for them during the school holidays and these activities are usually complimentary.  After we got back from Penang, we brought the kids to 1 Utama to enjoy […]

Bake with Ayden: Steamed Banana Cupcakes

We love bananas. It is one of our favourite local fruits. Banana is KING when it comes to nutrition. It is power-packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and many more. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy balance of fluids in the body and as an electrolyte, potassium stimulates nerves and muscles throughout our body. I eat banana everyday before going for my evening jog. Last week, it rained almost every evening deterring us from […]

That was what they got during our visit there. You can read all about it […]

It is a popular soup dish called Ayam Masak ‘O’.  One of the quickest and easiest soup to prepare, it is easily a favourite among children as well as adults with its soupy gravy, soft potatoes and flavorful chicken with lots of ginger.
