Do You Wear Your Wedding Band All The Time?

Do You Wear Your Wedding Band All The Time?

We do not. My parents do up until today and their wedding rings of over 40 years have never left their ring fingers. For us, that’s because of compelling situations that we are unable to wear our wedding bands all the time. I have tried […]

When I was about 12 years old, one of my permanent teeth was almost yanked out. Thankfully my mum knew of a very good dentist who managed to do a very tedious but successful job to salvage that tooth. I was so happy and grateful […]

Braised Chicken With Fresh Button Mushrooms

Braised Chicken With Fresh Button Mushrooms

Tired of cooking the same old dishes for my girls, I whipped up something different. As I had some fresh button mushrooms in the fridge and some chicken, I braised the chicken with fresh button mushrooms.  Fresh mushrooms can be pretty costly. A punnet costs over RM10.  If you want, you can substitute it with canned button mushrooms but fresh mushrooms taste better.

Seasoning used : organic soy sauce, mixed herbs, ground pepper, a pinch of brown sugar and a dollop of dark sauce.

The dish turned out to be very delish and my 3 little pernickety eaters gave me a 10/10 score 😀

Down With Infantile Roseola

Down With Infantile Roseola

When she was down with Infantile Roseola, my very sick Cassandra only ate a few sticks of Rocky biscuits, a few bites of mildly salted Nori sheets, a mouthful or two of organic rice crackers, sips of water and Nutrifresh for the entire day. Each time she ate the Rocky sticks, she could only stomach half  of the skinny stick. She kept telling me that she was very full. After 2.5 days of being really sick, she bounced back to her usual chatty self again. That day was one of the happiest for me or for any mother for that matter.

Baby had a bout of high fever last week. The high fever appeared after a day of power disruption at our condo unit. With no fan and coincidentally, that particular was unusually hot and humid, Baby immediately developed a fever that evening. The next day, […]

Boiled Peanuts for breakfast

Nutritionists and paeds will often tell parents to include protein in each of their child’s meal. A child needs protein to grow and without sufficient protein, your child’s growth may be stunted. To ensure that my pint-size Baby gets enough protein, I give her an […]
