Easy Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cookies

“Teacher’s Day is approaching. Not sure what to prepare as a gift to your teachers or teachers of your loved ones?”

I thought something home made would be great and personal to show your appreciation to the teachers. I have an easy and quick cookies recipe here to share. The cookies were scrumptious and really easy to make. Success rate was almost 100%.

You don’t need to scout for expensive or rare ingredients for this goodness. What I used were simply the basics you probably already had in your kitchen pantry. Or, head down to any of the supermarket, you would be able to get them all at once. Bake by your own, and pack them in some nice and special gift boxes, remember it’s your effort counts the most. But of course, with your delicious cookies to impress!

A visit to Hello Kitty Town & Little Big Club and overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour in Johor, Malaysia

“If you ask me, I would tell you that this place was comfortably… fun.”

I wasn’t too enthusiastic to visit JB town initially as I knew I was going to bring the children there alone this time. Though the location wasn’t far from the Tuas second link exit, we decided to book the bus coach instead of self driving, at least we would be in a group along the way. And our plan was to return only the next day after an overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour.

Hello Kitty Town & Little Big Club
Both themed parks were located in the same building block of 3 storey, just next to the main entrance of Hotel Jen. In fact, both the hotel and theme parks were within the same compound.

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.

Looking for Fun or Food in Club Med Bintan Ria?

“Vacation is about fun & food. When food is not a good enough option, look out for fun, most out of all!”

Revisiting Club Med Bintan Ria was my wish, and I just did, after 8 years. It was done with my two children, this time. I had something to say… Yea, once lauded Club Med Bintan in my old posts (year 2008) as one of the best all-inclusive resorts that served plentiful great food, I felt the obligation to pen down the latest experience of my most recent visit there.

As a foodie alike, my emphasis was always on the food. Food? Yes, food. There were only two restaurants serving their guests now. First, the main buffet restaurant, The Waterfall, was where we had all 3 meals a day throughout the stay, it had nothing much for me to shout about.

Fried XO Pork

“Use of air-fryer to roast the pork, before stir frying in wok to complete the dish.”

It was an impromptu idea to making of this dish. Just wanting to cook a dish tasted robust and yet able to feed my young boy as well. I thought it was easy to cook, and pleasant to taste.

Sounded deceptively complex, but in fact, the dish was easy and quick to assemble. I air fried the sliced meat to create some crispness to it before actually cooking in the wok. Air frying did help the seasoning sauce to fully absorb into the meat during the process. It also made the entire cooking less hassle with shortening of the wok-time.
