3 Drinks to Keep Us Cool on Super HOT days!

The weather is scorching hot these days and it is said to go on till March. The boys are even seen seeking shelter from the fierce sun during our daily evening playground routine.  I was waiting for Ayden to crawl out of the tunnel only to see him hide in there. I guess he discovered how cooling it is in there as opposed to the scorching hot sun.  And then there are TWO! Haiyo! That left […]

Delicious Persimmon Soup

Persimmon soup

Persimmons are an excellent source of fiber. They are very high in fructose though so have to keep reminding myself to eat them in moderation.  The persimmon season is short so whenever they are in season, I’ll make sure to buy them in boxes as I super love them.  But do you know persimmons make excellent soup as well? It pairs well with almost any bone broth. All you need is some persimmons and your […]

Guava Soup

Guava soup benefits

At 21 months old, Ayden is finally bored of porridge and mushy food. He likes to eat rice with soup these days. I’m busy looking for new soup recipes to add more varieties in his diet. I was first introduced to guava soup when I was invited to a friend’s house for dinner over CNY. It was my first time drinking guava soup and I must say that it is intriguingly delicious. It is unique, refreshing […]

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 […]

Bari-Uma Ramen @ Jaya Shopping Centre

Noritama Uma

When I was in college, I used to frequent Jaya Supermarket in Seksyen 14, PJ or do they call it Jaya Shopping Centre already then? I’m not too sure but we always referred to it as Jaya Supermarket then. That was like a couple of decades ago. The old ‘Jaya Supermarket’ had been torn down (or rather collapsed) and rebuilt into a new shopping mall now. We were around the area last week and decided to […]

Apple Red Dates Tea

apple red dates tong sui

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 […]

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. […]

Green Bean with Sago Dessert (Bubur Kacang Hijau)

green bean dessert bubur kacang hijau

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 […]

Sweet Peanut Soup

Sweet peanut dessert recipe

The scorching hot weather is really unbearable these days. To keep us cool, I boiled sweet peanut soup the other day. Sweet peanut soup is said to be heat-relieving. Peanuts are rich in energy and contain health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health. It’s pretty simple to boil this delicious, refreshing dessert. Unlike common believes that it takes the whole night of boiling to achieve that melt-in-the-mouth consistency, it took […]

Loh Han Guo Recipe

Loh Han Guo recipe

Loh Han Guo herbal tea is a great thirst quencher especially during the super hot days. Loh Han Guo also known as Buddha’s fruit or Monk’s fruit helps to nourish the lungs, promotes secretion of body fluids, relieves cough and reduces phlegm.  It’s super simple to boil this delicious, refreshing tea at home. It doesn’t take too much of my time either.  I used minimal ingredients (Loh Han Guo, dried longans and winter melon strips) […]

Homemade Chicken Essence

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 […]

Papaya Red Dates Milk Booster Soup

Papaya red dates soup milk booster

Six years ago I failed in my breastfeeding journey with Ethan. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and determination. Fast forward to present, I read (and try) everything possible to boost my milk supply so I can fully breastfeed Ayden. I learned the importance of direct latching as demand = supply. I also browsed the internet for lactating soups and consumes them regularly to keep myself well-nourished. One of the most popular milk […]

White Radish Soup Recipe

White radish soup

I was really knocked-out yesterday. The high fever coupled with flu and cough weakened me so much that I had to cancel my classes and just stay home to recuperate. I refused to see the doctor as I think this is just the normal fever, flu and cough. I lost my appetite and all I could think of was how nice it is to have a bowl of hot soup in front of me then.
