Sotong Tempra Recipe

The day before my water bag broke, I was happily eating in Puchong at my sister’s place as my parents were in town for a wedding the next day. As usual, my mother would prepare dinner for us whenever she comes to town. One of my favourite dishes that evening is this Sotong Tempra. A number of my friends requested for the recipe so here goes..  Sotong Tempra Ingredients: Sotong Big Onions (sliced) Red Chili Coriander […]

Casahana temptations

Mid Autumn festival is just around the corner. Pamela heard that my Mom is in town taking care of my confinement needs hence she is unable to go out shopping for mooncakes. She (Pamela) called Darling to meet up and one evening, Darling came home surprising us with this beautiful package of Casahana mooncakes.  Casahana’s beautiful gift packaging. Casahana Mooncakes I’ve never seen such beautiful mooncakes before. Even my Mom marveled at how fine their […]

Hot & Spicy Sze Chuan and Mooncakes @ Zuan Yuan

Ever since I started my confinement about 11 days ago, Darling and Ethan has been eating out quite frequent as they can’t eat the food meant for me. One of the places that they dined was Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant, One World Hotel. With the Hot & Spicy Sze Chuan promotion in the month of September (prices start from RM10 per dish) it is easily understood why they chose to dine there. Originating from Sichuan, […]

Hong Kong Mei Xin Mooncakes

Since the arrival of my second child a week ago, Darling and I have been busy trying to juggle our time for both Ethan and the little one. My mother is here to help for a month so it’s not too bad. Ethan gets bored sometimes since I can’t bring him out to the playground so I get Darling to bring Ethan to join our foodie friends in their food quest.  Last week, the foodie […]

Gartien Pineapple Cake – A little piece of Penang

Facebook can sometimes work wonders! I’ve seen several or should I say MANY Penang-langs posting the famous Gartien Pineapple cake on Facebook (especially with the Mid Autumn festival around the corner). I’ve eaten Pineapple Cake ONCE and ONCE only during a Taiwanese food promotion in 2011 where we also got to witness the Chef making the pineapple cake right before our very own eyes. That was my one and only time savoring this delicious delicacy. […]

Surprise Rainbow Cake

Ethan’s birthday was in July and his favourite KorKor Xiang wanted to celebrate with him but unfortunately he wasn’t around that time. We tried to celebrate a little later after that but both parties were tied up with dunno what and only managed to meet up today.  Xiang insisted to bake a cake for Ethan just like last year and I thought to meet outside for lunch or dinner but this dude wanted to COOK […]

Delectable Dining @ The Emperor Restaurant, Dorsett Grand Subang

Remember I blogged about having mooncake feast in Dorsett Grand Subang recently? The one where the little boy sulked big time coz I limit his mooncakes to 9 pieces only? If you don’t, here’s the comic to refresh your memory or you can just refer to my blog post here. Anyway, what I wanted to share today is the scrumptious dinner that we had BEFORE the mooncake feast.  Located at the Mezzanine floor of Dorsett […]

SS2 Goreng Pisang, 1 Utama

Was in 1U last weekend when I spotted this long queue. Long queue means there’s something good, right? Since I was so free that time, I joined the queue too. Not knowing what I was queuing for initially but then I found out that it was THE much hyped SS2 Goreng Pisang that has been the talk of the town especially in Facebook. After queuing for about 5 minutes, it was finally my turn to […]

Mooncake feast at Dorsett Grand Subang

When will we be celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival this year? With Ramadhan over and people slowly making their way back into the city after their Hari Raya break, we found out that it is that time of the year again where the Chinese community around the world celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival or most of us would deliciously remember it as Mooncake savouring time.  A couple of evenings ago, Darling, Ethan and I dined at The […]

Mom’s in town

We did not balik kampung during the holidays as I dread being caught in the massive jam. My sister told me that my parents will be up in KL instead and that is just perfect! I knew that instantly that we will all be pampered with Mom’s home-cooked meals! I quickly gave my mom a call and asked her if she can cook mee siam for me as I’ve been craving for it for ages!  […]

Birthday dinner @ Happy City Seafood Steamboat

It was Darling’s birthday over the weekend so I told him that Ethan and I will treat him to dinner but with one condition – HE’s paying! LoL! I guess all Stay At Home Mothers do that, don’t we? Whatever it is, it is HIS money that will be paying :P He asked me what I wanted to eat and I said STEAMBOAT! We went to this newly opened steamboat outlet in Dataran Sunway called […]

Cucur Ikan Bilis Recipe (Anchovies Fritters)

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.  […]

How to halve an egg

How do you cut a hard boiled egg in half? You can’t use a wire cutter unless you are planning to slice them into pieces. We can’t use knife as well as it will ruin the egg yolk. So I use what my Mom has been using – thread. I bet many of you do the same right?  Quickly pull a thread through the egg and there you have it, the perfect hard boiled egg […]

The spider biscuit craft made its way on TV when it appeared in Chiki Boom’s Saya Kreatif segment last Sunday. The making of Spider Biscuit Look at Ethan and Abang Alif ‘sibuk curi makan’ while Bella and Chandini are busy making their spiders! ^_^ After completing their spider biscuits, they finally get to […]

Simple Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Whenever we go out shopping, Ethan will always request to purchase a cup of smoothie. That cup of smoothie can be quite costly and at the rate Ethan and I hang out at the mall (EVERY day!) I can go bust any time! Ethan and his must-have smoothie. But ever since I got my PapaBlend blender, we’ve been making smoothies often at home. It is much more economical to buy your own fruit and yogurt […]

Concorde Hotel Shah Alam’s ‘The Best of Penang & Johor’ Ramadan Buffet

Muslims fast from dawn until the sun sets, offering more frequent prayers and restraining from wicked intentions during the Holy month of Ramadan. This Holy month also brings the ties between family and friends closer when Muslim seek forgiveness from each other and endure the month together. In this multi-cultural country, non-Muslims are always invited to join in the break fast meal as we live harmoniously together and that was just what we did several […]

What to do during the haze

I think we’ve never experienced haze as terrible as we did the past few days.  With majority of schools closed due to the haze, we still send Ethan to kindy as usual the past two days as his school is a corner lot house with full air-conditioned and is operating as usual minus the outdoor activities. Today, Ethan was supposed to go for his BaoBei class too in the evening but he told us that […]

Simple Homemade Burger Patty Recipe

Burger joints are mushrooming around the Klang Valley lately. It makes me crave for burgers day and night but Darling doesn’t bring me there mostly because their burger patties are made of beef and both Darling and Ethan do not take beef :( Now that I’m a mother, hygiene and health is another factor. We never know what goes into their burger patties. Unlike those days when I was in college and survived on frozen […]

Simple Omelette Wrap Recipe

I’ve never tried making wraps before but each time I ordered a sandwich in Subway and looking at their wraps makes me want to have a try! So the other day while grocery shopping I took the ‘courage’ and bought a pack of wholemeal Mission Wrap to try making my very own omelette wraps. You know me, I’ll try making it as simple as possible as I don’t like spending too much time in the […]

Avocado Milk Smoothie Recipe

I’ve never tried avocado in my life believe it or not. Never know if it’s nice or not until last weekend when I was shopping and saw them (Australian Avocados) selling at RM10.90 for a pack of 3. I asked Darling if he would like to give it a try and he said why not since there are so many health benefits of eating avocados.  Avocados are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants. That alone is enough […]

Buffet Ramadhan bersama Jaafar Onn dan Haiza di Dorsett Grand, Subang

Ramadhan Buffet

In about a little over a month, our Muslim friends will be ushering the holy month of Ramadhan.  It has always been our favourite to walk around Ramadhan Bazaars scouting for food and more but sometimes, the scorching heat is simply unbearable. When that happens, I prefer to just dine somewhere cool and comfortable. Dalam masa sebulan lebih, rakan-rakan Islam kita akan menyambut ketibaan bulan suci Ramadhan. Ia sentiasa menjadi kegemaran kami untuk berjalan-jalan cari […]

Grandma’s Home-made Nyonya Chang (dumpling)

That time of the year is approaching again with everyone busy making their own rice dumpling and showing them off on Facebook.  For the uninitiated ones such as me, we can only wish upon a star that some kind souls will be generous enough to give us some. Whenever we speak of rice dumplings, my memories will immediately be of my late Grandma’s home-made Nyonya Chang we fondly call Kueh Chang. I remembered when I […]

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 […]
