Tropical Fruits Durian Block Party

“Block Party for the Singapore Residents”

No cooking tonight. I was helping out the MP’s Block Visit this evening, followed by a Resident Block Party, with food and fruits. During the block visit by MP, I acted as the writer, to jot down feedback and requests raised by the residents addressing to certain government department, e.g. HDB, Town Council, LTA, and etc.

MP, a Member of Parliament, is a representative elected by the people voters of an electoral district to the parliament. In Singapore, MP usually conducts Meet-the-People session once a week and/ or a house-to-house visit will be scheduled within his/ her constituency every now and then. The RC, Resident Committee, of its estate will also organise block parties/ activities for the residents. More

My ‘Flavoursome’ 7-Day Detox Plan

” Dieting does not have to be a chore, my 7-Day Detox Plan shares a felicitous diet life with you”

Who says body detoxification program must farmish or eat only bland diet snack bars?

If I go on diet, I’ll take less amount, less oil and less salt food, but definately normal meals. No doubt, we have to forgo some foods such as fried food, processed snack food and alcohol. However, to go with strict liquid or apple-only meals for days isn’t my option so far. More

Small Abalone (Limpets) and Shredded Chicken Congee (小鲍鱼鸡丝粥)

“An ideal healthy light meal for your detox diet plan.”

Just feeling a little unwell with feverish body and dry throat. Chinese believed that rice congee or you called it rice porridge, might help to reduce the increased body heat (the body “heatiness”). So, I liked to cook porridge for dinner, if I found myself or my family member with symptoms of falling sick.

Most of the people would eat porridge as breakfast or supper as it was normally perceived as light meal. And, it could be digested easily, as compared to solid food such as rice. More

No Bake (Low-Fat) Yogurt Cheese Cake

“A luscious No-bake Low-Fat Yogurt Cheese Cake with Easy-Making Steps. You may try it anytime, any day!”

Yogurt is one of the staple food in my refrigerator. To eat it more interestingly, I find all sort of ways to have yogurt added to my dessert or fruits dishes.

Cheese cake is one of our favourite desserts, so far. However, those rich heavy cheese cakes are often too creamy, making me a little sick after having the entire slice… Well, this inspired me to make my own cheese cake. So, I made this cheese cake with my favourite yogurt added into it! More

No-Meat Diet

“No-Meat Meals for You and Me”

My colleague consulted me if having no-meat diets over a period will help in weight lose and slimming purposes. My answer is YES, to a certain extent (depends on its cooking method and ingredients mixed).

Just to share my experience and personal view with you here…

I had no-meat diet, for a period of 3-month long. It indeed helps me to slim down my body, in weight controlling and gain better health. More

Chinese Roasted Pork aka Char Siew Recipe (蜜汁叉烧)


“Authentic Char Siew with my heirloom recipe – Yummy & Juicy Roasted Pork that whets your appetite.”

‘Char Siew’, is actually Cantonese pronunciation. It means ‘fork roasting’. Why is it being called as ‘fork roasting’? It simply refers to its cooking method, long strips of marinated pork meat which are skewered with long forks, and roasted in a large covered oven using charcoal. This is a traditional way of making this dish. Char Siew is one of the famous “roasted flavours (烧味)” in Asia, especially Hong Kong. Char Siew (叉烧) is also well-known as Chinese roasted pork, barbecued pork and Cantonese-style honeyed pork.

The local flavour of Char Siew in Singapore usually appears in bright redish colour. Most Char Siew sellers mix red colouring to enhance redish appearance of this roasted pork. However, I opted out the colouring step as its original colour is even more alluring, to me. More
