Sakae Sushi @ Paradigm Mall

Paradigm Mall. Have you heard of Paradigm Mall? By now lots have been said about that mall. We visited that mall two days after their official opening and sad to say that it was extremely dusty.  The floor was slippery and I almost slip a couple of times. It was not easy navigating through the awkwardly designed mall with bottleneck human traffic at certain areas of the mall. That was my first visit to the […]

Sugar toast

Every once in a while, I let Ethan indulge in something not so healthy :P His favourite ‘unhealthy’ food is of course, sugar toast. It’s so easy to prepare. Just spread butter on a piece of sandwich bread. Toast it on my favourite Tefal pan. Turn it around. Once golden, sprinkle some sugar and you are done :D Ethan loves it so much, it’s finger licking GOOD! :D

Homemade Soya bean milk

It’s pretty hot these days. Took a shower and got all sweaty again soon after. I’ve not boiled soy milk for some time now and today seems like the perfect day to have some! I soaked a bowl of soy bean in the morning and by the time Ethan is back from school they are all nice and fluffy. I let Ethan peel the skin off those beans as he enjoys playing with them. I […]

Expecting Mums : Are you absorbing enough nutrients?

Double lines on the pregnancy test kit means positive. Congratulations, you are pregnant. I remembered seeing those double lines for the very first time when I conceived Ethan. Darling was still asleep. I got super excited yet I did not want to wake him. I left the test kit on the bathroom sink and went to work. At work an hour later, I got a call from Darling asking if it was true. We both […]

The bitter bitter gourd soup

The weather has been hot like crazy these days so I thought of boiling my favourite bitter gourd soup over the weekend to cool us down. I’ve never boiled this before I tell you though I’ve had it outside countless times. How hard can it be? It’s just like boiling any other soup but instead of using old cucumber or anything else, we use bitter gourd. No? –  pork ribs –  bitter gourd 苦瓜 (rub […]

Awana Kijal, Golf, Beach and Spa Resort

The last we stepped foot in Terengganu was last year when we flew to Kuala Terengganu to go to Pulau Redang. We did not do much there then as we spent most of our time in Redang. A couple of weeks ago, we went to Terengganu again. This time, we stayed in the 5 star Awana Kijal, Golf, Beach and Spa Resort. Approximately 5 hour drive from KL, it wasn’t that bad as we stopped […]

Bento workshop for kids

Today, Darling and I accompanied Ethan to his school’s educational trip – bento making. When Ethan initially brought home the permission slip, he told us that ONE adult must accompany him. I volunteered to go but Darling said it would be nice to make it a family outing as well so we paid for 2 adults and 1 kid :) Ethan was given a bento set, a pair of gloves, a hair net and a […]

Lemang Kijal

What is lemang? Lemang is a traditional malay food that is made of glutinous rice and cooked in hallowed bamboo stick lined with banana leaves in order to prevent the rice from sticking to the bamboo. Lemang is usually eaten with rendang or serunding. Usually prepared for festivities such as the Muslim Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Hari Raya Aidiladha, we found lemang in abundance EVERYDAY here in Terengganu during our trip to Awana Kijal, Golf, Beach & […]

Satar – Terengganu’s Local Delicacy

During our stay in Awana Kijal Golf, Beach and Spa Resort, the staffs there kept on raving about a certain fish snack called satar. They kept asking us if we’ve tried it. Honestly speaking, I’ve never heard of such a snack. When I knew I am going to Terengganu, the first thing that came to mind is keropok lekor and nasi dagang but definitely not satar as I am not even aware of its existence. […]

Kedai Kopi Hai Peng, Kemaman, Terengganu

From the first day we stepped foot in Terengganu, everybody was telling us that we must drop by Hai Peng Kopitiam to try their famous coffee. We wanted to drop by on the second day but our schedule was so tight that we could not make it. We did pass by the place and saw such huge crowd there. It must be really good then, that place.. Finally on our third day here we decided […]

Sitiawan Kompiang

I was raised in Sitiawan from Primary 4 until I left for college. When it comes to Sitiawan, one delicacy that you MUST try is: Gong Pian, Gong Phiang, Kong Piang, Kompiang.. however you spell it, it only means one thing : Biscuit made of lard, onions, salt and flour with either onion or minced pork fillings which is then slapped onto the sides of a traditional Chinese oven. It will stick at the side of […]

Blanched Bean Sprout Recipe

Darling loves eating Nga Choi Kai (Bean Sprouts Chicken) and we pay like RM2 for a plate of blanched beansprout which I think is ridiculous knowing how cheap beansprout is in the market! As usual, I’ll try to learn to prepare dishes that either Darling or Ethan loves. Yesterday, I tried dishing out blanched beansprout and I think it’s quite alright as Darling said I managed to get the correct texture with the right crunch! […]

Pepper Lunch Express

The other day after having a hearty meal in KL, we went to 1 Utama to get something. An hour later Ethan is hungry again. We went to Food Republic. Since Darling and I are still not hungry, we ordered only ONE meal for Ethan alone. I love the chicken rice there but today we felt like trying out something new. I ordered the Salmon Pepper Rice from Pepper Lunch Express.  I requested for them […]

Nyonya Chap Chye Recipe (Vegetarian Dish)

Unlike Loh Hon Chai (refer to my entry here)  where red bean curd is used, the Nyonya Chap Chye calls for the use of Taucu (minced bean paste) instead. This is an extremely simple dish to prepare and  the hint of sweetness goes well with kids. Ingredients: oil garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon minced taucu onion, sliced white cabbage carrot dried mushrooms, soaked and sliced dried lily buds (kin chiam), soaked; cut off the hard tips […]

French Toast with Chicken Floss filling

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I always make sure Darling and Ethan eat before they leave home for work and class. It’s a challenge to keep the meals interesting but today, I think I just hit the jackpot! Darling and Ethan had this and they love it max! What’s that? That’s french toast with chicken floss filling :) It’s really simple to prepare this. Cut 2 pieces of bread into 8 […]

Anmum Materna – Am I Taking It? :D

*48 hours sticky post. Scroll down for latest updates* It all started when my friend, a mother of a 3-month old girl posted on FB saying she’s giving away 3 boxes of Anmum Materna milk powder. I commented that she might as well continue drinking those until she finishes them all up but she replied that she is currently on Anmum Lacta as she is breast-feeding her daughter. One lady who responded to my friend’s […]

Red Bean & Black Glutinous Rice Dessert Recipe

Darling told me the other day he often drops by Kedai Kopi Khoong in Sea Park in the evenings alone for dessert. He brought me there for the very first time in 1997 and is still frequenting that place today! I don’t know what makes him kept going back there as I find their desserts so-so only -.- How? Am I that bad that he needs to ‘cari makan’ else where? :P So the other […]

Dim Sum Galore @ Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant, One World Hotel

If you know me well you’ll know I’ll never sacrifice my sleep to go for Dim Sum breakfast. Countless times my friends planned for an early dim sum but I always decline as sleep is very important to me. Already I am sleep deprived, I won’t make it worse by waking up extra early just to eat -.- Zuan Yuan, One World is having a dim sum lunch promotion from 1 March – 30 April […]
