“Post Hari Raya food? Not really…. It’s for any day, any time, you want!”

Mee Goreng, a fried noodle dish, commonly eating by the people in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. There are different versions of Mee Goreng among the races. Some like it a little bit sweeter while others like it very spicy. Mee Goreng is similar to Chinese ‘Chow Mien’, if this sounds more familiar to you. They both cooked with yellow noodle. However, Mee Goreng appears more moist, pinkish in appearance and often spicy in taste. You are able to find Mee Goreng in hawker center, food court and even high-end restaurant as local delights in Singapore. Yes, Mee Goreng stall in hawker centre often operates by Malay and Indian race. They cook most of the genuine taste of it! :) read more

Sausage & Cheese Baked Rice

“Baked rice with cheese from scratch.”

So happy to tell you that, my first attempt of baked rice was a success!

It was easy to assemble. What to do… I was a little too lazy to make anymore cheese food that requires many cooking steps, and hence, baked cheese rice has become my option, for tonight’s dinner.

Yes, it tasted delicious.

I find it very simple to cook, despite the fact of first attempt. This baked rice I’ve made from scratch, was using raw rice grain instead of the pre-cooked. It needs precise amount of water to be added to it in order to yield a perfect rice texture. Its baked rice cannot be too dry and hard to chew, or too soft and wet like porridge. read more

Roasted Mushroom Soba

“Oh I miss eating this Japanese Soba which comes with a superior European twist!”

Like many chef experts, including Chef Jason, said, “Good food doesn’t have to be expensive food. Healthy & delicious food is good food.”

This Japanese noodle dish, is suitable for pure vegetarian as garlic wasn’t added to it.

This Japanese noodle dish, is simple and easy to assemble.

However, advance preparation of Dahsi cooking stock for the dish is needed. Long and tedious to do so, for commercial use (if you are cooking in large quantity for restaurant use), but to prepare just for the home cooking, you only need an hour or so to cook up the stock! read more

Hainanese Chicken Rice (海南鸡饭)

“Secret recipe from dad & mum!”

Hainanese chicken rice seems to be one of the most popular local food in Singapore. This is a Singaporean cuisine, of course. It is so well known that almost every visitor and tourist to Singapore would eat it at least once.

To me, I like to cook chicken rice meal at home, especially if I have guests to feed. This is one of the economical yet presentable cookings to impress them.

My cooking, considerably an heirloom recipe, was passed down from my parents. It’s one of their best dishes which they used to cook for business in the older days. And now, their recipe was adapted with mainly homecooked flavour, lessen the addition of MSG! Yes, for business purpose, many sellers add MSG to maximize the flavour of the dish, especially the rice. Without MSG, the rice would not be as tasty as it has to be. However, I have chicken granule and other condiments to back me up, making it tasty enough. read more

Best Homemade Pineapple Fried Rice (菠萝炒饭)

“Pamper your loved ones with this savoury restaurant-standard pineapple fried rice, cooked from scratch, with less than $5 cost… and my homemade recipe!”

I did not post as often lately. First, I was very tired due to my hectic work. I had becoming no mood to explore new dishes/ cooking. My family ate only those of my simple already-hands-on dishes, or worst, take-away food. Sometimes, fast food (and of course, it was something pleasing to the little one.. rolling eyes). Anyway, I do apologise to my fans and readers, if you have been missing my new posts. And, I thank you, if you are still following my blog and FB Fan club, waiting to hear from me (winking smile). read more
