Bake with Ayden: Rice Cooker Cheesecake

My family loves cheesecake a lot but we’ve never baked one ourselves as we don’t have an oven. We came across a rice cooker cheesecake recipe online recently and got excited to try it out. The only problem is, the recipe from Dingo Food is not in English and when I clicked on the translated version, it requires the use of FOUR DOGS! I reckon it will be such a hassle to catch 4 dogs. Moreover, […]

Cook with Ayden: Dhal Curry

Today Lil’ Chef Ayden will be cooking Dhal Curry. Dhal Curry has always been the boys’ favourite whenever we eat Roti Canai so today I thought, why not guide him to cook it himself? The heat level of Dhal Curry can be adjusted according to your preference. If your kid can’t tolerate spicy stuffs, then go low on the chili or you may omit it altogether. Dhal is simply the Indian word for lentils. I […]

Bake with Ayden: Steamed Banana Cupcakes

We love bananas. It is one of our favourite local fruits. Banana is KING when it comes to nutrition. It is power-packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and many more. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy balance of fluids in the body and as an electrolyte, potassium stimulates nerves and muscles throughout our body. I eat banana everyday before going for my evening jog. Last week, it rained almost every evening deterring us from […]

Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La, Penang – A Family Friendly Resort

We love Penang. It is only 4 hours drive away from Kuala Lumpur hence it is easily our favourite choice for a short getaway whenever we need a boost of some Vitamin Sea and nice, sandy beaches. We usually stay at Batu Feringgi whenever we go up to Penang as the boys love to spend time playing by the beach. It is no different this school holidays with Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La being our […]

Canton2go – Food delivered right to your doorstep

At this stage of my life, I spend so much time raising the kids, we hardly get to catch up with friends. Our friends are also mostly busy with either work or their family that if we don’t make the effort, we will never get to meet-up. Last weekend, we decided to surprise our good friend; the person you don’t always see but is very much involved in my blog. He is the one who manages […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Masak O

We are going to share a Peranakan Nyonya dish today. It is a popular soup dish called Ayam Masak ‘O’.  One of the quickest and easiest soup to prepare, it is easily a favourite among children as well as adults with its soupy gravy, soft potatoes and flavorful chicken with lots of ginger. Though we use ginger to cook this, it is not gingery hot but rather just nice to complement the whole thing. Best […]

Cook with Ayden: Keledek Kukus

Sweet potato has many health benefits. They are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). Our body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin and good eye health and vision hence it is an excellent food choice for growing kids. As sweet potato is naturally sweet, it is delicious eaten on its own. It is extremely easy to cook sweet potato. All we need to do is […]

Cook with Ayden: Chicken Stew

Little Ayden is getting really comfortable with our rice cooker these days. He uses it to bake cakes and recently cooked a chicken dish in it. I saw how easy it was to cook using the rice cooker and decided to let him try cooking Chicken Stew in it. There is a whole lot of ingredients required to cook this Chicken Stew but these are mostly basic stuffs that you’ll usually have ready in your kitchen on […]

Cook with Ethan: Bendi Goreng Bawang Belacan

After all the cooking videos I did for Ayden, I think it is only fair to have one for Ethan too. That boy has been so occupied with school, homework, co-coriculum and more that I hardly have time to speak to him on weekdays  Just a blink of an eye, Ethan is already 9 going to be 10 this year. He is growing up fast before my very eyes so I better take more pictures […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Satay Buah Keras

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I did a live Peranakan cooking demo at The Straits Hotel and Suites, Melaka. One of the dish we cooked is Ayam Satay Buah Keras. Today, Ayden cooked the same dish at home but instead of using the wok, he used the rice cooker because he is too young to be handling a wok and a gas stove. If you wish to try cooking this dish, do […]

Jazzy Sunday Brunch @ Hotel Equatorial Melaka

We all look forward to weekends, don’t we? After all the hard work during the weekdays, it is a much sought after break to chill, unwind and recharge over the weekends with some good food and music.  Music affects us directly. We react differently to different types of music; upbeat songs make us excited while slower songs may make us sad. However, studies have shown that Jazz relieves stress. Jazz’s soothing melody helps us relax yet at […]

Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson: A Perfect Family Destination

We went for our first family holiday this year at Lexis Hibiscus, Port Dickson. We have always wanted to come here since their soft launch over a year ago but decided to wait until they are fully completed so that we can fully enjoy their facilities. The first thing I noticed was that they have free WIFI and the coverage is pretty strong throughout the entire resort. Thumbs UP! Before I go into details, here is […]

MILO®UHT® UHT Bento Making Workshop

With just a blink of an eye we are now in 2017. It is time to start getting the children (and us parents) ready for school again. That means waking up early preparing Ethan’s bento box to ensure he stays energized throughout the day. I got lazy midway last year as I found it complicated and tedious to pack his bento box and resorted to letting him buy food from the canteen. I lost the […]

canton2go Mini Buffet Delivery

Malaysians in general love food. We love anything food. There must be food in everything we do, be it a quick meet up over tea or a long catch up over dinner, food always takes the centre stage. But as much as we love food, not many of us are equipped with the life-saving skill of cooking. Urban folks especially are always in a hurry that we rarely get to spend time in the kitchen.  With […]

Popular Chinese New Year Snack : Chicken Floss Roll

Chicken Floss Roll is one of the more popular Chinese New Year snack around. It is extremely addictive that once you start, you’ll find it difficult to stop eating them. It is also expensive to buy them so I decided to resume making them this year. I used to make this every year before I have kids. The boys are pretty okay on their own these days so I can sneak some time making one […]
