Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese - I'm Looking For...

~ Posted on Friday, April 17, 2015 at 7:01 AM ~

Ever since I started kindergarten at 6 years old, I have been attending public schools (main language is Bahasa Malaysia) and during my earlier years, I mixed around with a lot of Malay friends and even spoke Bahasa with my elder brother at home (he also attends public schools), even to this day. So Bahasa Malaysia used to be my main language other than Cantonese and later on English (brushed up more when I met my hubby then boyfriend through snail mails, I had to practise and brush up my English as he doesn't speak Cantonese) Anyway, I think it is fun to be able to practise back and sharing what I know with those of you who are interested.

And so, here goes our next lesson: I'M LOOKING FOR...

Evening Picnic At Bukit Kiara Park TTDI

~ Posted on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 6:01 AM ~

We recently had a brief picnic outing at Bukit Kiara Park TTDI. Hubby made egg crabstick mayo sandwiches and spicy prawn aglio olio and we invited our sis in law and her teenage daughter along as well. I think we arrived at the park around 6-ish, weather is nice though we actually heard thunder roaring at a distance but thank God, no rain until late at night.

As we were walking in deeper to search for a nice sheltered area (or at least near a shelter area in case it suddenly rains), we saw a big monitor lizard. It stopped for a few seconds, us too, frozen and scared that it might lunged towards us. But luckily it went on its journey and we actually saw the monitor lizard going into the lake and it swam for a wee bit. We lost sight of it as we were busy looking for picnic spots hahaha...

Once we found a nice shaded area, which is just a few feet away from a shelter spot, we spread out our picnic mat, took out the food and drinks, sprayed on the mosquito repellents on everybody and rested. SIL and her daughter brought our 3 kiddos to a playground nearby and after that she got some bubble gadgets for our kids to play with. 

All in all, it was a very nice outing with the kiddos and extended family members. Nice weather, nice scenery, nice people to hang out with :D

Dinner - Before & After

~ Posted on Monday, April 13, 2015 at 8:33 AM ~

Last year, I wrote about a look back into my home-cooked journey so far. Then shortly before the end of 2014, I wrote a post on my preparation when cooking. Then I thought, "Why not snap a picture of before start cooking and the final results after cooking?"

So, here you go..

Top part of the picture is the ingredients all ready to be cooked on 2nd March 2015. From left (ingredients): Pork slices marinated in sweet soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce, sugar, salt and pepper, onion sliced thinly, 3 cloves of garlic sliced thinly, chicken slices marinated in sweet soy sauce, sugar and baking soda (to tenderise it), mushroom sliced thinly (pre-braised earlier), spinach, a cup of tomato + sugar + water, a cup of water + salt pepper + anchovy base sauce
