Evening routine

Tiger Balm Mosquito Repellent Patch_12

We look forward to playground time every day. It is our favourite time of the day where the big brother plays with his friends from the neighbourhood while little Ayden explores and spends more time with me. Once the daddy is back from work, he’ll join us, taking over Ayden and I’ll get to go for my 2.5km jog. After I get my heart pumping and work out some sweat, I’ll play with Ayden again and the […]

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle 1

After making so many frozen traditional popsicles aka ais krim potong, I guess it’s time to make some fruity frozen yogurt treat.  I bought some strawberries the other day.  I washed and removed the leaves. I sliced some and left the rest to be blended with yogurt later.  I juiced half an apple for some natural sweetness.  Combine apple juice, strawberries and natural yogurt in a food processor.  Blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle mould. […]

Easy Frozen Durian Popsicle Recipe

Durian popsicle

My sister-in-law brought some durians for us from my FIL’s orchard last weekend. Thick, creamy and extremely sweet. Oh me, oh my. Yums! I ate them all immediately leaving 2 seeds (as shown above) to make durian frozen popsicles. Creamy durian flesh.  Boil a cup of fresh milk in a pot. Add the durian flesh and mash. I did not add sugar and salt since I’m making this for my 22-months-old Ayden. Once boiled, let […]

Easiest Fruit Salad for Kids

DIY Fruit salad for toddlers

Today while big brother Ethan is at school, Ayden decided to help me make fruit salad. Actually I have no problem feeding Ayden fruits. It is the big brother I am having difficulty with. He refused to eat fruits no matter what so these days, I make fruit salad for him. With fruit salads, he’ll at least eat maybe 2 to 3 spoon fulls, better than nothing right?  So let’s make this easy peasy fruit […]

I made Mee Hoon Kueh.  Mee Hoon Kueh aka Pan Mee with only flour and water without eggs. I made a hole in the […]

Homemade Sweet Corn Ice Popsicle

After my first attempt of making the highly successful and delicious banana chocolate ice popsicle that is a huge hit with the kids, I am more confident to try on other healthy treats. Since the kids love corn, I thought of making sweet corn ice popsicle as we always buy sweet corn ais krim potong.  Ingredients needed are just a cob of sweet corn, a glass of fresh milk, a teaspoon of sugar and a […]

WORLDFOODS Yellow Curry Recipe

WorldFoods Yellow Curry Paste Recipe3

I’ve mentioned numerous times that the long school holiday means being extra busy in the kitchen whipping out one pot wonders for the family. Why one pot? Because having a 15 months old toddler with me limits whatever time I can spend in the kitchen so I try to cook only fast and convenient food for them without compromising on the quality and nutrition of the food. One of my ‘speciality’ is this simple non-baked […]

Apple Red Dates Tea

This is one of the very first tongsui I learned to boil several years ago. I love the refreshing naturally sweet taste of the apples and red dates combined. They are not joking when they say ‘An Apple A Day Keeps the Doctor Away’ as apples is believed to attribute to healthy heart. The antioxidant compounds found in apples, help prevent LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and inhibit inflammation. Also, the soluble fiber in apples can lower bad […]

A Color A Day Porridge For Babies

Rainbow porridge for babies

Ayden is exactly 11 months now and I am very thankful that he is still enjoying his porridge. I try to make his porridge more interesting by having color themes during weekdays. Weekends will be colorful rainbow porridge. The reason I make color themed porridge is for Ayden to be able to taste the different core ingredients throughout the week and not be bored down with the usual mix of everything. It’s also a great […]

Easy Homemade Chicken Stock for Babies

homemade chicken stock for babies

Since Ayden started eating solid food, I’ve been cooking porridge for him every day without fail. You can check out some of the porridge recipes here. He’ll be 11 months old in a week’s time and I want to add varieties into his meals. I am feeling like feeding him pasta so I boiled chicken stock. Homemade chicken stock is better for babies instead of those commercial ones as it is not encouraged to feed […]

Winter Melon Tea Recipe

homemade winter melon tea

Winter melon is slightly cool in nature. Drinking winter melon tea in these prolonged hot days is a great way to combat heat.  It is sweet in taste, helps to detoxify, clears out mucus and phlegm and promotes digestion. Winter melon’s diuretic effect helps to eliminate water retention. It contains potassium that helps flush out sugars and waste through our urinary tract. Not a fan of drinking packet drinks, I like to boil my own winter melon tea. […]

I am on a tong sui frenzy and have been boiling a different tong sui every day for the past couple of weeks mainly due to the scorching weather we are experiencing lately. I’ve been repeating Barley, Loh Han Guo, Red Bean and Black Glutinous Rice and Sweet Peanut Soup as these are clearly Ethan’s favourite. I have always wanted to boil green bean or mung bean soup but always ended up procrastinating as both […]

Homemade Chicken Essence

Home Cooked Chicken Essence_8

Lately I’ve been feeling fatigued and Darling said I look pale too. Maybe because I’ve not gotten enough rest when both the kids are down recently. He wanted to buy ready made chicken essence for me but I don’t want them. I told him I’ll make my own chicken essence so everyone in the family can drink it too. Chicken essence can reduce mental fatigue. It is also beneficial for students ie Ethan. I heard […]

Postpartum hair loss. How many of you suffered from it after delivering your baby? I had it, TWICE, both with Ethan and Ayden. This was what greeted me every morning.

She said it will help restore my crowning glory. Ingredients: 50g […]

Cucur Ikan Bilis Recipe (Anchovies Fritters)

Cucur ikan bilis recipe_4

Cucur Ikan Bilis or Cekodok Ikan Bilis is many Malaysians’ favourite snack for tea. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, they won’t last long on the kitchen table as we would usually gobble them all up in no time. With the holy month of Ramadhan approaching really soon, I believe cucur ikan bilis will be sold widely in Bazaar Ramadhan everywhere. I remembered buying them each time I frequent a Ramadhan Bazaar.  […]

Spicy Mushroom Tapas Recipe

Spicy Mushroom Tapas Recipe

I have a new hobby lately – watching Ayam Brand’s The Student Series online. The Student Series revolves around Will (played by Will Quah) a typical male student; clumsy and a complete disaster in the kitchen. His sister, Sarah (played by Aishah Sinclair) is the opposite. She knows her way around the kitchen and loves to cook. Since Will is leaving for his studies to Australia soon, he is concerned that he will miss Malaysian […]

Pan-fried Salmon with Garlic Buttered Mushroom Recipe

Garlic buttered mushroom salmon

When Ethan was younger, I always cook salmon for him. I stopped when he grew older. I don’t know why (maybe because salmon is costly) we just stopped eating salmon for several years now until today. We were in AEON Supermarket when I spotted their salmon selling at 50% less. Bought several packs home and immediately started cooking dinner. Ingredients: Salmon Greens of your choice (Broccoli, Carrot & Corn) Garlic spread Parsley Since the salmon […]

Sambal Petai Ikan Bilis Recipe

Sambal petai with fried anchovies

When I was younger, I already love to eat petai. My second sister however is not a fan of it. I remembered taking a bite of the petai from my mother’s sambal and gave out a loud “HAH” in front of my sis so she could smell my breath! I remembered how pissed she was! LoL! Those were the good ol’ days.. Though I love sambal especially with petai in it, I’ve never tried dishing […]

I’m a very happy woman today. Darling left to work with a smile on his face saying he had a delicious breakfast, better than those he gets from the Mamak stall! Oh me, oh my! It’s not everyday I get such a compliment from him so you can imagine me floating in the air smiling like a silly little girl. I’m so happy that I’m blogging this out immediately! LoL!
