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 […]

Family Dim Sum Brunch at The Emperor, Dorsett Grand Subang

Last Sunday we were in Dorsett Grand Subang in conjunction with their Family Dim Sum Brunch promotion at their award-winning restaurant, The Emperor. This was not the first time for us dining here as we were here last year during my birthday stay and dine celebration. You can read all about it here. The first thing that caught Ethan’s attention was the “Kid’s Corner” where baby-sitting service and fun activities are available for children.  The […]

Pan-fried Salmon with Garlic Buttered Mushroom Recipe

When Ethan was younger, I always cook salmon for him. I stopped when he grew older. I don’t know why (maybe because salmon is costly) we just stopped eating salmon for several years now until today. We were in AEON Supermarket when I spotted their salmon selling at 50% less. Bought several packs home and immediately started cooking dinner. Ingredients: Salmon Greens of your choice (Broccoli, Carrot & Corn) Garlic spread Parsley Since the salmon […]

Roti John recipe

I’ve not had Roti John for the longest time ever. Roti John is basically an omelette sandwich. These days people prefer to have meat in the omelette. If you drop by any Roti John stall, you’ll find the common minced chicken meat or beef being used but for me, I’ve always preferred to use sardine instead (as my mom has been making it this way since I was little). Yesterday the thought of Roti John […]

How to get a kid to eat vegetables

If there is one flaw in Ethan, it must be the fact that he doesn’t like fruits. Getting him to eat fruits is like forcing him to take poison. I’ve given up coaxing him to eat fruits. He doesn’t like juices as well but occasionally will gulp down a glass of freshly blended apple juice just so his Mommy won’t cry that all her efforts has gone to waste.  To balance things up, I have […]

Secret Brunch on a quiet weekend

It was a ‘secretive’ weekend. I was hush-hush on my whereabouts. Nah.. I was in KL and it was very quiet. Suddenly Ethan said that he wants to eat Mac n Cheese REALLY badly! I asked him, “How bad?” He answered, “Really, really bad!” Whoa… I told him he has a pregnant woman’s craving! We were in KLCC then so we dropped by this place for the Mac n Cheese but upon reading the menu […]

Sambal Petai Ikan Bilis Recipe

When I was younger, I already love to eat petai. My second sister however is not a fan of it. I remembered taking a bite of the petai from my mother’s sambal and gave out a loud “HAH” in front of my sis so she could smell my breath! I remembered how pissed she was! LoL! Those were the good ol’ days.. Though I love sambal especially with petai in it, I’ve never tried dishing […]

Stir Fried Green Beans in Belacan (Shrimp Paste) Recipe

My mother fries wicked ‘bawang belacan’ veges such as Pucuk Ubi Bawang Belacan and Ladies Finger (Okra) Bawang Belacan. She calls it bawang belacan as the ingredients calls for shallots (bawang), shrimp paste (belacan) and also chili.  When Ethan was younger, he does not take spicy food hence all the veges are stir fried with only garlic or with the added oyster sauce. Now that he is turning 6 in 3 months time, he is […]

Facebook’s FoodBook

This past few days have been extremely hot during the day and then suddenly it pours heavily come evenings. The sudden change of weather is causing havoc to my system as it is messing with my mind! Actually checking my FB newsfeed can also drive me crazy with all those food pics. I will suddenly think of big fat sloppy burger or bubbling hot steamboat after seeing any random friends’ postings. I can honestly say […]

Happy Valley Seafood Restaurant, Genting

During our 2D/1N stay in Genting for the YNOT Graffiti event, we were all treated like VIPs especially when it comes to food. We also got the opportunity to try Genting Outdoor Theme Park’s latest ride – The Waves. This ride is ultra cool I tell you where you’ll be covered with a huge blue blanket midway and then just as it opens for you to see the world, the ride goes backwards and you […]

Delicious Fried Instant Noodles Recipe

I’m a very happy woman today. Darling left to work with a smile on his face saying he had a delicious breakfast, better than those he gets from the Mamak stall! Oh me, oh my! It’s not everyday I get such a compliment from him so you can imagine me floating in the air smiling like a silly little girl. I’m so happy that I’m blogging this out immediately! LoL! I ‘accidentally’ woke up a […]

Luncheon Meat Egg roll

I’ve been wanting to post this up for some time now but never had the time until today :D My mother prepares this simple meal for us often as all of us loves it. She gave me 2 cans of luncheon meat the last time I went back hometown so I thought of trying making this myself. This is the first time I’m making this so let’s see how it turns out! Luncheon meat roll […]

RWGenting YNOT Graffiti Art Finale

We were up in Genting last weekend for the YNOT Graffiti Art Finale. Resort World Genting is very kind to provide accommodation, meals and transportation for us bloggers. We did not follow their bus though and drove up ourselves as we planned to stay back late on Sunday. We were given a room in First World Hotel and to my surprise, it is quite spacious. I stayed in First World decades ago and as I […]

Pyssla beads cake

We were given a task to come out with a cake made of boxes. I immediately replied, ‘Impossible!’. Back then I had cereal boxes in mind and was thinking how the heck am I supposed to turn those boxes into cakes?! Our client refused to accept my ‘NO CAN DO’ answer and insists that we come out with something in two days time! @[email protected] I was so stressed! Today is the final day for submission […]

Sweet and Sour Prawn Recipe

I have more time to spare in the kitchen now that Ethan is attending kindergarten. Ethan loves sweet and sour fish while Darling loves sweet and sour crab but I’ve never tried cooking sweet and sour prawns before until several days ago. This is the outcome. Very yummy with lots of gravy to drench the rice. Ethan and I love our rice to be wet so I deliberately cook up extra gravy. Sweet and Sour […]

Kampar Claypot Chicken Rice Recipe

Last week during the one week school holidays, I was on a cooking spree. I tried loads of new recipes. One of them was this Kampar Claypot Chicken Rice by Debbie Teoh. I watched her YouTube tutorial and it looked so easy, with most of the ingredients not being too fancy that I have all of them in my kitchen at all times (except the claypot >_<) Chicken marinate ingredients: 1) 500 grams chicken whole […]

Training chopsticks for kids

Chopsticks. How many of you know how to use it? I did not learn how to use a pair of chopsticks until I was in my Secondary school. These days I love using chopsticks when eating noodles. Darling on the other hand is more ‘English’ as he uses fork and spoon to eat noodles @[email protected] Ethan has always admired me using the chopsticks and requested to learn using it. I don’t know how to teach […]

Our set meals dinner @ Paradise Inn, Sunway Pyramid

We found ourselves in Sunway Pyramid during one of the school holiday evenings. Tummy grumbling yet we were undecided on where and what to eat when we came across this: Ethan can’t help but squirm on how cute those ‘things’ are and just like a ‘trap’, we were lured into its premise called Paradise Inn (near Jusco and Starbucks) Hunger got into us so Darling ordered their Stewed Pork Belly before deciding what else to […]
