Pork cutlets


Minced pork
Mashed potatoes
Five spiced powder
Liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
Sesame oil
Corn flour

Mixed and I kept overnight before shaping and pan frying!

This is my childhood dish that my mum prepare for me those days!

That’s also the reason why I stress so much on home cooked food! It brings back memory and I hope by cooking it brings my girls’ memories about me in the future (be it in talking or non talking terms)! 😝

Change of baby pattern as closer to 4mo


Yes, her ‘pattern’ is changing this week. She is starting to have separation anxiety, sleeping less in the day and can’t keep her eyes off me! At noon, she wants to go without swaddle and prefers side nursing. Hence, there’s growing ‘madness’ (as I have to complete my stuff while she is asleep) – but looking at this smiling face after nursing and putting her to sleep – how mad can I go?


I wish…


…. every date night/ shopping (with or without papa) is as peaceful as tonight!😘

She definitely needs a lot of reminders and some permissive deals!

– reminded her that she has to behave and shouldn’t be running around the supermarket, before leaving home and car – I made her say ‘ok’
– allowed her to go through the supermarket entrance before getting on the trolley and went up to level 2 when she requested to do so

BBQ pork with broccoli

Using Angel brand oriental bbq sauce, I marinated the pork overnight together with some honey, pepper, dark caramel sauce and cornflour.

I air fried the pork for 15 minutes under 200 degree celcius. Cool it down before slicing.

Stir fry garlic in oil (from the air fryer – meaning pork’s oil) until fragrant. Then add in broccoli and the remaining marinate sauce plus water. Cook until broccoli almost done and then add in the sliced pork!

Some sweet corns

After mixing all other ingredients, add in the meringue!

Crispy waffle – found the texture my girl likes!

Short getaway?


A short getaway is definitely a breather for mummies, especially stay at home mums. Getting away from home for a night or two (or more) definitely helps in bringing back our sanity (be it somewhere near or far from home).


While we dream to get away from home, our duties never end during holidays! We worry about the things we bring along and for health conscious mummies with young kids – their food!! How wonderful if our getaway home comes with a kitchen and basic cooking equipments! It would be perfect if it is located near to a supermarket, where we could source fresh goods! This definitely reduces our luggage weight and the unnecessary worry that our little ones would not be fed well during our short stay. With young kids, how we wish our stay over is spacious enough for our kid(s) to explore.
