Resipi Mudah Sambal Petai Ikan Bilis

If you are an avid reader of my blog you’ll know that I love gardening. I grow only edible plants. I used to love growing flowers to beautify the house but these days, practicality is my priority. It is better to grow my own vegetables so I can get organic produce at home.  Chilies grow well at my place. I have two pots of them. The other day before we went for our holidays, I […]

Kid Friendly Hotel @ Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit, Thailand

We went to Bangkok during the recent festive holidays. It was our first trip to Bangkok hence we decided to focus on only exploring places within the city that are easily accessible by their BTS skytrain or cab. We sourced for hotels nearby BTS skytrain stations and decided on Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit as it is situated right across the station. *VIDEO* NOVOTEL Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit ADDRESS: 566 Ploenchit Road, Lumpini, Patumwan, Bangkok 10330 Bangkok, Thailand […]

Wat Arun Temple in Bangkok

On our second day in Bangkok, we planned to visit the Grand Palace. The hotel concierge helped us get a taxi and specifically informed the driver to send us to the Grand Palace but as soon as we started our journey, the taxi driver told us that we will need to walk a bit to the Grand Palace as vehicles are not allowed into the area due to the daily prayers (during the mourning period) after […]

Easy Homemade Burger Patty Recipe

The boys love eating burgers but I limit them as I’m not too sure what goes into the burgers that we purchase outside. The better way to feed their appetite is to make our own burger patty. We can make our own burger bun too but that will be too much of a hassle so for now, let’s just start with making our own burger patty. Making our own burger patty is actually very simple. […]

Wonderful Pearl Dinner Cruise @ Bangkok, Thailand

We just got back from a week-long holiday in Bangkok. This is one of the most ‘unprepared’ trip we have ever done. We had been pretty occupied and busy the weeks prior to our trip that we did not manage to plan a proper itinerary and decided to just go with the flow. Close to the end of our trip, the Daddy decided to splurge on a dinner cruise. We are entitled to free local […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Pongteh Pressure Cooker

Several months ago, big bro Ethan shared with us how to cook this famous Peranakan dish – Ayam Pongteh. Big bro Ethan cooked it the conventional way – on the gas stove. Earlier this month we got ourselves a new toy, the new all-in-one cooker by Philips. It comes with sauté function as well as pressure cook (among many other functions) so we tried to cook Ayam Pongteh in it to see if it will […]

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 […]

Every Woman Needs A Bag

I stopped carrying handbags for over a decade now since I became a mother. What used to be a handbag has been replaced by a diaper/milk bag as there are just too many things to bring along when we go out with the boys. Recently, I received a couple of MIZZUE bags for Mother’s Day. It reminded me how much I missed having my own bag instead of lugging a diaper bag everywhere. This new ‘Sunshine Dooms’ […]

Swiss-Garden Beach Resort, Damai Laut

*VIDEO* During the recent school holidays, we took advantage to travel up to Sitiawan – the place I grew up after my father retired from the Navy.

We stayed at Swiss-Garden Beach Resort, Damai Laut. A hidden gem; secluded but […]

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 […]

Nuts about Sangkaya ice-cream

We brought the boys to Sunway Lagoon last Saturday. It was a super hot day so we decided to have some cold treats in Sunway Pyramid after that. We dropped by Sangkaya kiosk which is located opposite Nando’s and Guardian.  Sangkaya is nuts about coconut and is well-known for their ice-cream with coconut milk as the foundation. One of their new release is Gula Melaka ice-cream which I am madly in love with. It has that very […]

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 […]

Tua Pek Kong Temple @ Pasir Panjang, Sitiawan

I grew up in Sitiawan but left to KL since college. It has been 20 years since I last stepped foot here. We were finally back in Sitiawan last Sunday. Words can’t describe how delighted I was to finally walk on the ground that shaped me to be who I am today. These two are my former classmates. I surprised one of them at his coffee shop for lunch the moment we arrived Sitiawan. The other guy is […]

When the stress reliever causes more stress

I’ve mentioned this countless times – how playground time is important for us. It is especially important during exam weeks as Ethan goes there to release stress.  We went to the playground as usual today. I got my dose of exercise too from jogging and utilizing the playground equipment such as this monkey bar: Can you see my little supporter there?  So nice to have someone cheering me on when my arms are already feeling like […]

Confinement Food: Black Vinegar Pork Trotter

About 3 weeks ago, someone in our family gave birth ahead of time; catching us all of guard.  As she has no other family members here in PJ except us, I cooked some confinement food for her. It was my first time cooking confinement food and I somehow simply whacked as long as got ginger except the black bean soup lah. That one has no ginger in it. I also boiled red dates and longan […]
