~ Posted on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at 5:07 PM ~

For this post, I am sharing my next food recipe, Stir-Fry Fish with Ginger & Scallions (in Cantonese, we called this 'Keung Choong Yue Phin'). Without further ado, here is the recipe for Stir-Fry Fish Slices with Ginger & Scallions:


Ingredients:
* Fish (I used Asian sea bass or we called it siakap here in Malaysia)
 * Garlic (quantity up to you, the more the better flavor - cut into small slices)
 * Scallions (quantity up to you, the more the better flavor - cut into small pieces about 1cm in length)
* Ginger
(quantity up to you, the more the better flavor - cut into thin slices about 2-3mm wide)
 
* A pinch of salt (to marinade fish and flavoring)
* 1 tsp of chicken stock powder (for gravy/sauce)
* Half cup of water (to make the gravy/sauce)
* Oil - for frying the chicken meat (quantity up to you)

Methods: 
 
* Wash the fish, make sure they are as dry as possible (use paper towel to absorb). Slice the fish into bite-sized chunks.
* Marinate with salt for about 10 minutes.
* Heat up oil in pan.
* Fry the fish until half cooked (I normally fry until a bit brown)
* Add ginger and continue frying for about 2-3 minutes
* Add garlic and scallions followed by water and chicken stock powder, cover the frying pan and continue frying for another 10-15 minutes
* Ready to serve

Play-Doh Town Firehouse

~ Posted on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 12:23 PM ~

We have previously reviewed the Play-Doh party pack a while back and everyone enjoyed the experience so when our kiddos saw the Play-Doh Town Firehouse box on my office table, they went crazy excited and can't wait to open up the box to play with the new Play-Doh set!

Play-Doh Town Firehouse

In the Play-Doh Town Firehouse box set, it included a Firehouse set, firefighter figure with hat, puppy extruder, roof, flame stamper, water cannon extruder, axe, hydrant extruder, and 4 cans of Play-Doh brand modeling compound (color: yellow, neon orange, teal green and bright blue). After making them wait for few hours (testing their patience hehehe!)

I finally opened up the box and slowly assembled the items according to the user-friendly manual that came along with the box. According to the usage guide on the box, the Play-Doh Town Firehouse is for children 3+ years, just nice for our 3 krakens age ranging from 3 to 7.5 years old at the moment :)

Like every other Asian parents, I'm very OCD and concerned that it will be messy when my kids play, but the trick is to lay a good "foundation mat" around before they start playing. I like it when our kiddos play with the Play-Doh as I truly believe it helps to cultivate their creativity and helps improve their motor skills as their little fingers squeeze and mould the compound and watching them immersed themselves in their role-play world is just a sight to behold!

I took the opportunity to show our kiddos how to make the fiery flame sculpture from the flame stamper, a bit of yellow in the center bottom part surrounded by some neon orange Play-Doh and voila... fiery flames ready to be played with! I should've used more yellow but I decided to let our kiddos try and figure it out by themselves hehehe... As parents, we should know Play-Doh is a really awesome teaching tool! You get to teach kiddos to identify colors, to mix and create new colors (blue + yellow = green for example). Just gotta seize the moments when the teaching opportunities come along!

I also allowed our 3-year-old girl to experiment on making the teddy bear sculpture herself. As you can see in the pictures below, she took a slab of bright blue Play-Doh and stamped out the teddy bear sculpture. Awesome!

The nice part is our 3 kiddos were sitting quietly and playing together, not fighting and just enjoy discovering the cool things that they can churned out from the Play-Doh Town Firehouse set. What a nice siblings bonding and teamwork activity hahaha!

By the way, Play-Doh celebrates its 60th birthday this year! Whoaaaa!! 6 decades of awesomeness for many generations of kiddos! The iconic yellow can has expanded into more than 80 countries across the globe, with more than 3 billion cans of Play-Doh compound sold - that’s enough Play-Doh compound to reach to the moon and back THREE times! Cool-ness!

The Play-Doh Town Firehouse is available in all leading departmental, toy stores, baby shops and hypermarkets.
