How to carve a watermelon porcupine

Last week, I received an invitation to another potluck dinner. I love receiving invitations. It means there are still people out there who likes me and wants my company. It makes me feel so loved :D But I am afraid of potluck. It gives me stress up to level 9999 as I don’t cook. The stress is higher when I am invited by a great chef who is also a marvellous food writer. I needed […]

Malacca’s Famous Chicken Rice Balls

I was back at my parent’s place in Malacca last weekend. My Dad will always make sure there is breakfast ready on the table each time his kids and grandchildren are home. If he buys something spicy such as nasi lemak or roti canai, he’ll make sure to buy a packet of noodles for Ethan and Ayden.  He knows of Ayden’s latest fascination with fishballs so he went out of his way to get Malacca’s […]

Potluck Lunch

It all started from one of my FB postings. My foodie friend commented something and one comment led to another and we ended up planning for a potluck. I volunteered to bring a POT since I don’t cook and suggested for Choi Yen to bring the LUCK. We pulled Xiang into the picture as we know he has a nice house to host us :D Just an impromptu idea that became a reality but we are […]

Tony Roma’s Ribs, Seafood & Steak

We spent the entire day at eCurve and got really tired. We saw an empty bench in front of Tony Roma’s and quickly took a sit to rest our exhausted feet. Thank goodness for the bench, our zonked feet got a couple of minutes of rest. Not only was our feet were dead beat, we were famished too. That was when we spotted the latest promo from Tony Roma’s. Without delaying further, we made our […]

5 Reasons to visit Koosh Koffeez @ Publika Shopping Gallery

There is this new coffee place in Publika Shopping Gallery opened barely a month ago (at the time of writing) that you must visit at least once and I bet you’ll get hooked to it soon after as it has a really lovely interior, great coffee and surprisingly very good food.

I am over the moon because I just won myself some mooncakes, 4 to be exact. I saw the contest being posted on their FB page at 6pm. My heart palpitated as I watched the youtube video to find out the answers as the first 3 to comment correctly will take home their Jewels of Mid-Autumn box holding 4 mooncakes. Maybe because it was 6pm and everybody is on the way home from work or something […]

Easy basic bread recipe

Darling has this habit of forgetting to redeem the points from his credit cards before they expire. He has wasted several thousand points because of this. The other day, I reminded him to redeem something before his points expires again. He said he’ll look into it. What I did not know was he redeemed a breadmaker for me until one fine day a courier guy delivered it to me. I was over the moon when I […]

Feeding Ayam Kampung

We went back to my in-law’s place last Sunday and Ayden requested to feed the chickens. To him it’s like a trip to a petting zoo. I used to get very annoyed with these chickens I tell you. It’s not so much the chickens that I hate but their droppings. They are every where and the worst is when you stepped on it before entering the car.  But now with kids, I tend to mellow […]

Homemade Blueberry Yogurt Popsicle

It’s been quite some time since we last made some frozen popsicles. It’s been raining almost every evening but who says we can’t have frozen popsicles on a cool, rainy day? :P  So I took out a packet of blueberries from the fridge, soaked, rinsed and dumped them into my blender with freshly squeezed apple juice and yogurt.  Give it a few swirl until the yogurt turned a pinkish purple. No, it’s not going to […]

Le Pont Boulangerie @ Bedford Business Park

I am not a very active Instagram user but when I do have the extra time, I like to spend a minute or two browsing through the beautiful, almost picture perfect feed. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of pictures of Le Pont Boulangerie, one of Old Klang Road’s new F&B landmarks. Most of them are very artistic. I’m not good in taking artistic pictures hence my infrequent updates on Instagram but there is something about […]

Quick and Easy Chicken Rice

Ethan has been talking so much about Jurassic World as most of his friends in school have watched it in the cinema. With his exams all done and over with, we decided to bring him for a movie treat last weekend.  My boys and I before the movie start. Am so glad that Ayden sat through the entire movie this time. During our last movie outing, that boy ran out halfway through making me miss out on […]

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle

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. […]

Refreshing Homemade Frozen Orange Popsicle

I made orange frozen popsicle once. I did not add sugar and little Ayden refused to eat it. I guess it was too sour. So I thought of an alternative to make it sweeter naturally.  I added natural apple juice.  I blend the orange and apple juice together.  Poured into the popsicle mould and freeze.  The result is an extremely refreshing cold treat on a super hot day! This orange plus apple juice popsicle is […]

Easy Frozen Durian Popsicle Recipe

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 […]
