PapaBlend review: Making ice-blended honeydew drink

The scorching hot weather is unbearable lately. We kept stuffing ourselves with ice-creams but I prefer to get something more nutritious for Ethan if possible. So the other day, we bought some honeydews. Ethan has never eaten honeydew before so I wasn’t sure if he’ll love this ice-blended drink or not. Nevertheless, I got him to help me out so he’ll know exactly what he’ll be drinking.  Honeydew slices and ice.  Ethan scooped the honeydew […]

How was your weekend?

Mine was a fantastic one. It’s always fantastic when I’m back in my parent’s place. The first thing that greeted me upon arrival is the long craved nasi lemak bunga telang with kangkung, anchovies, prawn sambal, boiled egg and cucumber. Urm, actually my niece, my sister and my mom greeted me first but ah well, I was so looking forward to EAT this! Haha.. *aiyaiyai.. now i feel like eating this again* This nasi lemak […]

Launch of Dumex Mamil All ‘n One

Nine out of 10 growing-up children in Malaysia are lacking a balanced diet, which means they are not consuming the five key food groups (fruits and vegetables, carbohydrates, protein, dairy, and fats) in the right proportions. Most do not consume enough fruits and vegetables and are deficient in micronutrients such as vitamins A, D and calcium. They also have excess in protein and fat intakes. The findings from the recent dietary study conducted by Universiti […]

Simple donut bento for kids

A very quick update. I made an extremely simple donut bento for Ethan today. His snack break time is only 10 minutes so he has very limited time to eat. That’s also the reason why his lunch box is very simple with minimal food in it.  Bread donut bento 1) Spread peanut butter/chocolate or any spread of your choice on a piece of bread. 2) Place another piece of bread on it.  3) Use a […]

Bento making for beginners

Ethan will be starting Kindy this 1st of March. I did not pay for his snacks in school as being a former Kindy teacher I know how ‘nice and healthy’ canteen food can be.  I talked to Ethan and he is okay with the idea of bringing his own food. But that is before he actually goes to school and sees his friends eating different. I am afraid by then he might not be happy […]

Tickling My Tastebuds

I’m not an early bird as the thought of “The early bird catches the worm” scares the heck out of me. Mind you, I don’t want to be eating worms for breakfast! I want to have Dim Sums! But Dim Sum breakfast is a very rare treat for me as we don’t have the time during weekday rush and on weekends the earliest we usually leave the house is at noon. I don’t like to […]

Gold Coast Morib Resort

This year, my parents did not celebrate Chinese New Year in Malacca due to the passing of the family’s matriarch last year. My eldest sister (and family) took my parents to Gold Coast Morib Resort instead. We joined them on the 2nd day of Chinese New Year. Though we just had lunch before pushing off to Morib, we arrived just in time as my family were about to have lunch so we ate together much […]

Pensonic PapaBlend : Introductory price RM499 only

How many of you here is a fan of ice-blended beverages? I’m a HUGE fan of ice-blended but not just any blender can blend ice, mind you. You need a blender with really solid steel blades to do the job.  Imagine my delight when I was invited by Pensonic (courtesy of Nuffnang) to the launch of PapaBlend blender at MYoga, The Gardens mid of last month. I was so excited I told Darling I’m so gonna […]

Going Japanese this Valentine’s Day at Fu-Rin Japanese Restaurant

From the very first year Darling and I dated, we’ve always celebrated Valentine’s Day having western food. I don’t know why, it was never Oriental, local or anything but it has always been WESTERN! This year however, we celebrated Valentine’s with a twist. Well, besides celebrating it a week earlier and also celebrating it together with friends, we went Japanese this time around at Fu-Rin Japanese Restaurant, Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie. Our appetizer was […]

Chinese New Year dinner at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant, One World Hotel

Klebang Original Coconut Shake

I’ve been wanting to try the famous Klebang Original Coconut Shake since like forever but never got the chance even though it’s not very far away from my parents’ place. It’s like each time I am back in Malacca and pestered any of my relatives to bring me there, they’ll go, “but the queue is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long!” Nobody wants to bring me there. I would have forced Darling to bring me there IF only I […]

Preparing for pregnancy

When you see married couples without a baby, your immediate thoughts would be, “Why?” and you can’t keep yourself from asking them, “When?” When people see married couples with only ONE child, they’ll not hesitate to ask, “When’s number TWO coming along?” I got asked that question ALL THE TIME now that Ethan is already 5. While I can always avoid that topic when he was younger, it is not so easy to brush people […]

McDonald’s Prosperity Burger

Once a year for a limited duration of time, I like to sink my teeth into McDonald’s Prosperity Burger. Who can resist the juicy beef/chicken meat patty with sloppy black pepper sauce especially when it is only available for a limited time only?  This year, on the 19th & 20th January, with every purchase of a Prosperity Meal, RM1 will be donated to the ‘Prosperity Gives Back’ campaign; raising funds for local charity homes.  We […]

Merry Mulberry Christmas

Christmas comes early for us this year. Come to think of it, we always celebrate Christmas early! :D Our early celebration was held at Mulberry Restaurant and Bar in Ming Annexe, Jalan Ampang, Lebuh Ampang. I remembered last year when I dropped by this place, I have this to say, “tucked in the ground floor of Ming Annexe Building, it is truly a hidden gem for I really like what I saw. My first impression of the […]

DIY Packed Lunch

Ethan and I were in Jusco the other day when a promoter approaches us with this Ayam Brand Ready-To-Eat Sardines. She was promoting the two new flavours – Spring Water and Teriyaki Sauce. The promoter told me (while looking at Ethan), “Mam, this Ready-To-Eat sardines contain no added MSG and no preservatives! No need to cook, just open and serve!” Hah! The thing about grocery shopping with a kid is that the little monster would […]

Anniversary Dinner @ Grand Dorsett Subang

This is a rather backdated post la. It was our wedding anniversary last month. Last year we celebrated it with a stay in Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie with a romantic dinner at The Mix to follow suit. This year, we celebrated it more casually over buffet dinner in Grand Dorsett Subang. We’ve dined here numerous times and we kind of like it here so we kept coming back. In fact, Ethan loves their pasta station […]

Pizza Fest: Cheesy Roasted Chicken Delight Pizza recipe

I’ve always love pizza. Actually I love lasagna more but since I’m watching my diet, pizza is a better alternative *I hope* The last time I made my own pizza was way back in secondary school during Home Science lesson! -.- We were in Aria Italian Dining last night to help out a bunch of college kids with their project – Pizza Fest. Even their lecturer was present that night! We got the opportunity to […]
