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 […]
Over the long weekend we spent most of our time eating. I don’t know. I think it’s a Malaysian thing. We happy, we eat. We bored, we eat. We stress, we eat. We angry, we eat :P As for us, we were not angry nor stressed out but purely wanted to kill time. Since we had so much time in our hands, we drove all the way to Bangsar for some Japanese cuisine. We went […]
Remember we had dinner at Xenri not too long ago? We saw that their Yee Sang set will be up soon so I quickly gathered my best pals to try it out. The thing about Lou Sang is the more the merrier and merry we were that fine afternoon as there were 10 of us excited to try out their luxurious Yee Sang. A row of beautiful bamboos outside Xenri. If you ever have trouble finding […]
OK this post is not about me selling Elken products but coincidentally I was at Wisma Elken to meet up a friend who was there to collect something. It was late evening by the time I arrived there so we decided to have dinner nearby. It was just several days into the new year 2015 and we thought we should ‘eat big’ to start our year with abundance so we made our way to Xenri (located […]
Ethan was on medical leave the other day and we got hungry but I realised we ran out of rice at home. I’ve not been cooking much lately so we don’t have much stuff stocked up at home. I checked and all we had was bread, egg and nori sheets. Bread, egg and nori sheets. What can we make out of them? We made sushi! Bread sushi to be exact… Here’s how we made the cheat […]
The school holidays is here and that means parents (mostly urban families) signing their kids up for various holiday programmes available to keep their kids occupied. As for us, we did not sign Ethan up for anything except this bento making workshop organised by BaoBei. Though he attended a similar workshop last year (read about it here) he is still keen to attend it this year as he enjoyed it a lot. Last year Darling […]
I blogged about making spider biscuits for Halloween Treats last October. Refer to my Spider Biscuit post to see the full instructions. 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 […]
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 […]
Never under estimate the power of blogging. The other day, when I blogged about Ethan making honeydew smoothie here, it caught the attention of Yvonne from TV1 and she called me to request for a tutorial recording. She also read about my donut and pizza bento posts and wanted us to demo how to make them too. Of course I agreed but the only problem then was the recording will be held at MY house. […]
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 […]
My (not so) baby finally went to Kindy today. It is his first day but he doesn’t want me to send him so his Dad drove him there instead >_< Big boy now. Going to school on his own without me :D I made pizza bento for his lunch box today. Pizza bento Brown some meat (sausage, ham or anything of your choice) He loves cheese so I placed cheese in between his bread. Cut […]
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 […]
