Hot Dogs

Ning's daddy loves these for breakfast, he had 2 servings of it this morning.

I think they look beautiful

Mini Egg Tarts

My first egg tarts, did a batch of really mini ones. The pastry taste alright, but its a little too thick, I should've roll it more thinly, the egg custard looks more white than the usual yellow, maybe I should add one more egg to the custard mixture.. hmm... overall, its still edible lah.
Will try this again till I get it right.

Breakfast by the park

Just a simple breakfast at West Coast Park last Sunday, ning had a good time messing up in the sand. We promised to let her fly a kite next week, but I still dun know where to get a kite yet. Maybe I should check out Daiso...

Our Wedding Anniversary

We had dinner every year at the Hilltop Restaurant. That's where Ning's daddy had asked me to marry him. Its not a fancy restaurant, but its one of my favourite.

Once, when we were not driving, we foolishly think its romantic and managable to just walk down the hill after dinner. Luckily an old couple driving down hill offered to gave us a lift when they saw us in the middle of nowhere. While chatting, they said they frequent the restaurant way back when they were dating. I told Ning's daddy I want us to be like them, so we agreed to spend every of our anniversary there. Actually, tats not a bad idea, we don't have to crack of mind with where to eat every year.

I am a lucky woman, I have a loving hubby, a adorable and healthy child, and more than 50pairs of shoes... what more would I ask for... haha!

Luncheon Meat Rice

My mum often cook this for us when we were young, its super easy to prepare. I remembered mum told me our dad dislike eating this rice, I never asked why. 20years later, now, Ning's daddy didn't like it too... and I don't have to ask why. If he knows I'm cooking this, he'd say "huh, we no money liao izzit?" or he'd say "Coco (my Chiwawa)... dinner time!" I wondered if that's the same reason why my dad dislike this rice 2 decades ago. Maybe I should call this "Ego bruising rice" haha!

How to make:
  • Smash luncheon meat into your desired pieces and set aside

  • Cook rice in rice cooker as per normal

  • When rice is just cook, pour luncheon meat onto rice and cover for 5mins

  • Drizzle some dark soya sauce and sesame oil for added fragrant and taste.

  • Mix well and serve hot
I prefer to eat it plain with my favourite chili sauce.

For luncheon meat, I'd rather pay double for those that says "Product of Denmark" instead of the common ones that are produce in ... you know what I mean?

We are blessed with a great view from our larger than usual balcony, that's where Ning gets to watch aeroplanes, helicopters, birds and occasionally eagles, when they flew by. The sky does get alot busier lately due to the upcoming NDP.

Today, Ning gets to see a real rainbow for the first time, it only lasted a couple of minutes, I'm glad we caught it.

Cheese Toast

Ning had these cheese toast for breakfast this morning. I brushed some butter on the outside and "toast" them in a wok over the stove, pressed them flat when the cheese soften so they'll stick together, thin and a little crispy. Just right for her teething gums.

Mine had a slice of honey baked ham in them. Hmm... Ham with Cheese.. match made in heaven!

Crispy Butter Toast

Whenever we have leftovers slices of bread that has reaches its expiry date, I'd toast them into these little snacks with butter and sugar. Some time ago, I saw from a blog I frequented that we can actually use milo as well.. Curious of how it'd taste like, I tried it out... they were good! It just gets abit sticky when cool, Ning enjoy the milo ones and I still prefers the good old butter and sugar version.

What is Miso?

Ning is a soup lover, she can sipped dry a bowl of any soup, anytime. As we dun have freshly brewed soup everyday, I turn to Miso paste for a quick and healthy alternative. Ning's daddy just brought back a tub of miso paste from Japan and I've explored a few recipes with it.

Undon in Miso soup for Ning

Girl Girl so cute.. wats you name?

Ning enjoys spending time in malls.. hehe.. just like her mummy...

She was happily striking poses for the camera, when a passerby comes up to us and say.. "girl girl.. so cute.. wats your name...?" Before he can complete his sentence, ning had already buried her face in between my thighs..

Ning's 1st Class Photo

Ning with her classmates.. (clockwise from top) Kynan with mummy, Dylan with daddy, Ning with mummy, Shanyce and mummy. Sensei Mariam left us for another class after sharing 2 terms of wonderful time with us.. sob! sob!

Ning had just finished her 2nd term at Shichida Methods, I remembered on the 1st lesson of our first term, there were 6 students in our class, Ning was the youngest and smallest in size. She have not even started walking while the rest were already roaming around the classroom. She was rather timid and shy in the beginning, always sticking to me like super glue... But now, she would be all over the classroom during the lesson.

Pandan Kaya Sandwiches

Goodies for a good friend of mine

How Vain Are You?

You Are 40% Vain

Okay, so you're slightly vain from time to time, but you're not superficial at all.You are realistic. You know that looks matter. You just try to make them matter less.
