Recipe for ugly sushi
(I steamed the carrot for 10 minutes to soften it)

10442458_10203115522321772_7303724839088741096_nFor a 10.30am to 6pm journey, our girl finished nearly all the food that I prepared. She direct latches 3 times during the hours.

We actually went to Setia Mall, which has a kids playland. The playland is relatively small but since it was a weekday, no children except little 17chipmunks was there. Yes, we occupied the whole place for nearly one and half hour. And, it just cost us RM10 (one of the cheapest we went). It charges per time rate. RM4 for first 20 minutes and RM1 for subsequent 10 minutes.


Last Friday, when we went to Klang to visit my parents, we were in Aeon Bukit Tinggi and little 17hipmunks just ran into the Kids Playland before I made a payment. It is RM10 per entry, unlimited playtime. But given that we went there late, we only managed to play around for 40 minutes or less, or else, this would be the cheapest so far. LOL!



Two more days to 18th month

10409719_10203113641874762_2791833941096403733_nMy girl, this week, is superb in one way…

1. Besides “more”, she now says “no more”.
2. In the bath tub, if the water is still kind of hot, she will say “hot”!
3. She smacks on my face if I am angry with her (I show her angry face).
4. She suddenly does not enjoy fruit juice as much as she does.
5. She is becoming really ‘tey’, screaming for little things.
6. She decides to brush her own teeth in the morning.
7. She decides to sit on the potty occasionally, but nothing came.
8. When she wakes up, even if papa is there, she snubs him, walk pass him to look for mummy.
9. She enjoys filling her mouth with the pool water and then spitting it out into the pool drain.
10. She starts picking up pen to draw.

Enjoy every smooch she gives me everyday, especially if she wants something!

Homemade carrot noodle in papaya & apple soup topped with pan fried Atlantic mackerel


The soup could help some mummies boost breastmilk! *ting* Breastfeeding mummies might be interested with this recipe. It did help me in the first few days of confinement – my mum thought about it!

Soup ingredients:
1 unripe papaya, sliced
1 green apple, sliced
3 red apples, sliced
1 1/2 chicken carcass
2 slices lean pork
Handful of wolf berries
Handful of red dates
Water as needed

Boiled for 2-3 hours.

*can replace chicken carcass and pork with fish bones

*apples skin is not removed, as there’s where the nutrients are

The soup is sweet without salt/sugar!

Carrot noodle, same as <here> replace spinach with carrot

I no longer need to pinch as I have a basic noodle maker!

Pan fried Atlantic mackerel, squeeze some lemon juice and covered with corn flour, pan fry with olive oil

Hassle free lunch and she finished all in 15 minutes.

Dessert: Watermelon


For dinner: Same dinner but topped with steam carrot & steam prawns


Not-so-bear-shaped but fluffy pumpkin pau


My hands got itchy again after seeing some pumpkin puree made for dinner’s ingredients. LOL!

Ingredients used:
80g pumpkin puree
100g pau flour
30g cake flour
1 tsp instant yeast
1/2 tbsp molasses sugar
1 tbsp skimmed milk powder
No water required (for my case)

Mix everything and knead for 10 minutes. Leave it aside for 1 hour. Then shape it to smaller balls (my case I used a bear mold). Set it aside to proof for another 30 minutes. Under high heat, steam for 10 minutes. Off fire and leave it for 2 minutes before removing.

I have 5 not-so-bear-shaped and 1 round paus from these, just nice for the two of us.

Shrimp and apple sushi for my 17m27d


Darling, this is meant for lunch… Why are you asking for “more” now? =.= <Video>

I have wanted to make sushi for her since returning from Taipei – since she loves it so much & wanted sushi during her food “strike”. I have most of the things needed, just that I am not sure what kind of vinegar to use until I saw mummy Adel’s post. I finally bought the sushi seasoning ( my friend says an alternative will be apple cider vinegar).

My ingredients:
1/2 cup short grain rice, soaked and boiled in rice cooker in 3/4 cup water
After rice cooked, add in one tbsp of sushi seasoning, mix and cool down
Shrimps, removed shelves & marinated with grapes juice, steam for 5 minutes – cool down and cut each shrimp into half
Half gala apple, strip it
Roasted & unsalted dried seaweed sheets (I used 3 sheets, each cut into half)

The sushi seasoning I got from Aeon Big, it is less than RM10:


The roasted seaweed sheet that I bought from Japanese Food fair:


Watch YouTube on how to roll sushi, mine is ugly

Today’s soup:
1 1/2 chicken carcass

Mummies have been asking me where I got the popsicle mold. I got it from Daiso, but the quality is poor. I heard that there are popsicle mold from Munchkin and NUK. I think I need to get a new one soon!

Sweet sauce macaroni

10481610_10203087709066458_5293631149678555007_nSlightly late lunch today because my 17m26d fell asleep before her usual lunch time. I made macaroni for her instead of her usual pasta as I was lazy to cook a separate pasta when I was having macaroni.

Sweet sauce ingredients: Sun melon, tomatoes, carrot, onion, oats, olive oil, chicken stock, cheddar cheese

Meat: Chicken marinated with grapes & yogurt, onion, olive oil (I pour in the sweet sauce that was cooked separately to stew with the chicken)
