Winter Melon Tea Recipe

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)

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

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 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) […]

The Kitchen’s Instant Kampua

I’ve been reading his blog for years and I must tell you that 80 or 90% of his entries MUST touch about kampua noodles somehow or rather that it made me as curious as a cat on what’s so special about these kampua noodles in Sibu. He always teases me about making that trip to Sibu so I can eat all the kampua I want. Ok, maybe he wasn’t teasing. Maybe he seriously means it. He is […]

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 […]

Nook @ Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

If there is ONE place my family loves dining at it is at the urban-inspired designed Nook, Aloft Kuala Lumpur because there’s ‘fireworks’ all the time! Can you see the beautiful ‘fireworks’ lights? Ethan and Ayden can marvel at them the whole night long! It’s that time of the year where restaurants everywhere get ready to usher in Ramadhan and Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is one of the first we attended with the A-list Malaysian feast – […]

Ice Cream Potong

We had dinner in Nook, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral tonight. It was a buffet spread and there was this freezer with loads and loads of ice cream potongs for dessert. I don’t know about you but it has been ages since I last had ice cream potong! I don’t usually let Ethan eat ice-cream at night but this is ice-cream potong we are talking about! Who can resist? Enough lah weh! You baby where can […]

Eating Out for Baby

Since Ayden started solid about a month ago, I never cook and bring his food out when we are out of the house. I just fed him some baby biscuits while we are eating and he is good. But last weekend I did. He is having such good appetite these days that when we eat, he’ll lick his lips hoping to be fed too. So for the very first time last Saturday, I brought his […]

Fuss free baby porridge recipes

Ayden is 7 1/2 months now and is having the time of his life enjoying solid food. I started him on solid quite late at 6 1/2 months. He had mainly fruit purees for 2 weeks before I ‘upgraded’ him to porridge. I use all the ingredients that he has eaten in the past 2 weeks (except meat and anchovies) so that I know he won’t have any allergy reaction to them. Boiling porridge for […]

Project Cookie Fail

Ok. Today’s entry is a replicate of my Dayre entry. I’ve been thinking, I update my Dayre sometimes but nobody reads it there. It’s like a ghost town there in my page. So I’m going to post it here in my blog instead where at least I have one or two readers -.- But the best part about Dayre is their stickers. The stickers you see here are ‘stolen’ from Dayre. Do check it out here if […]

Pasta Zanmai @ Sunway Pyramid

Darling had to meet a client in Sunway today so we took the opportunity to tag along. He dropped us in Sunway Pyramid and after a while I got tired and hungry. I thought of having pizza but it was too far and coincidentally we were right in front of Pasta Zanmai. Since we’ve never tried dining here, I went right in with Ethan and Ayden.  Pasta Zanmai @ Sunway Pyramid As soon as we […]

Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet Recipe

I love drinking sweet desserts. Apart from my favourite red bean with black glutinous rice dessert, my another all-time favourite is my mom’s Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet. I’ve never boiled this myself because I’m just too lazy to shell and remove the ginkgo core. Here’s how my mom makes it: Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet Ingredients: Barley Shelled Ginkgo with core removed. Bean Curd Sheet / Fu Chok. Make sure it’s the […]

Sushi Zanmai @ Sunway Pyramid

When it comes to choosing a place to eat, there are 2 types of people in this world. One who will go to eateries with the longest queue and join the line and the other who will enter the almost empty eatery so he/she will get served immediately. The person who joins the longest queue does so because he believes it is worth queuing because there is good food waiting for him in there; hence […]

Papaya Red Dates Milk Booster Soup

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 […]

Bread Sushi

Ethan was on medical leave the other day and we got hungry but I realised we ran out of rice at home. I’ve not been cooking much lately so we don’t have much stuff stocked up at home. I checked and all we had was bread, egg and nori sheets. Bread, egg and nori sheets. What can we make out of them? We made sushi! Bread sushi to be exact…  Here’s how we made the cheat […]

Black Glutinous Rice with Black Bean and Black Sesame Porridge

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. It scares the heck out of me as I really thought that I’ll be going bald. I confided in a friend about my worries and she gave me this hair growth recipe to try. She said it will help restore my crowning glory. Ingredients: 50g […]

Black Bean with Red Dates Chicken Soup

Since the arrival of Ayden, I don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen anymore but I can’t stand eating out all the time so I try my best to prepare something convenient yet nutritious – soup. I am also fully breastfeeding Ayden so soup is one of the major milk booster for me. Today’s soup is the simplest of  the lot – Chinese Black Bean with Red Dates Chicken Soup. A popular soup […]

Chinese New Year Snack : Seaweed Roll

For the past couple of years (or maybe slightly more) I’ve not been making anything for Chinese New Year. I was always busy with Ang Pow decor workshops that I hardly have time to be in the kitchen. This year though, I tried making at least ONE snack and the chosen snack is non other than the simplest of the lot – Seaweed roll. Nori sheets, popiah skin and egg white. That’s all we need […]
