Carbonara can be an easy meal for the whole family. I do not cook often. In fact, I have never prepared a proper meal for my family. In December 2017, I had the opportunity to cook a proper meal at the request of my children (GerGer and BoiBoy). It is Carbonara, at the request for… Read More Simple One Pan Bacon Carbonara for busy parents
Stop taking Sausages and Ham I grew up in a small family and many times only my mom and I were eating at home for many years. It is not easy to cook for two persons and we are not exactly good at cooking. So we ended up with lots of junk food meals. My… Read More Stop Taking Sausages and Ham
[Sponsored Post] I am always dreaming up new ideas to coach GerGer and BoiBoy to be thinkers, and problem solvers. For the past few years, I have used my self-taught super duper time-consuming ways to teach them that crying over an issue might not be the best way out. I took opportunity of every incident… Read More Power Up! our children’s thinking with Eu Yan Sang
My life has entered another stage in April this year. Two staff members have left our retail store due to health reasons. My consolation prize is that one will be back in two weeks, hopefully. At the exact same time, three part time students have left as they prepare for their tertiary education. It’s weird… Read More Venting my anger on GerGer – Yet another Motherhood Failure Moment?
I must say that having no expectations seems to give room for impromptu celebrations! DeeDee brought me to a small Chinese Restaurant for a meal to mark our 7th wedding anniversary. It was near where we stay so it didn’t take up much of the little time we had before we made way to our… Read More Impromptu Celebration !!!

Our super busy schedule after we started a business a food retail business few months back is making our lives more unbalanced. Nevertheless, our financial goals stay strong in hope… Read More Love is in the Air; Ten Years of Commitment
I had Duck Kway Teow (flat rice noodles) at Clementi Hawker recently. It’s from the stall facing the wet market (not facing the opposite shop houses). It only cost me $2.50 and tasted delicious. I added Tau Pok (fried bean curd) which I usually cannot resist and cost me additional $0.50. The gravy did not… Read More Nice and Cheap Duck Kway Teow

This post gives some limelight to a fruit which MeeMee loves. Chinese orka. What in the world is Chinese orka?! Chinese okra is formally known as Luffa. As its… Read More AhMah’s cooking – Chinese Orka
I love mushrooms, in creamy soup or with creamy spaghetti; stirred fried or deep fried. It is my comfort food. Recently I joined a group of colleagues for a “luxurious” lunch, after a couple of days on budget lunch – wholemeal bread and instant coffee. The Fungi Spaghetti in cream sauce was my indulgence. At… Read More Mushroom Spaghetti
A pleasant lunch welcomed me a few days ago. My colleague’s mom fried Bee Hoon (vermicelli) and she brought some to the office for me. Awwwww! I was too hungry to wait for it to arrive as breakfast. I reached office early and had a bread. I had kept it for lunch instead. Hmmmm! What… Read More Wonderful lunch
