“Happy SG50, Singapore! It’s cupcake for your celebration party!”
Pink cupcake is my son’s favorite cake. So for me, making pink frosting was my choice. So for you, making red frosting for the Singapore National Day should be more appropriate, if desired.
Cupcakes are surely well-liked, especially over the parties and gatherings. They sure are the hit, making the party table look fabulous, they would make a delectable sweet treat to your guests as well.
And, since I made these mainly for my toddler son, buttercream frosting was spared. Forget about fancy cream and whatsoever, I used just a light whipped cream frosting here. It’s my all time favorite frosting, anyway!
“Make this easy & scrumptious marble cheese cake at home anytime. It’s sure to be good enough as a treat.”
I was suffering from jet lag upon returning to Singapore. Everything seemed hard and difficult enough for me to work on, let alone baking a treat at home. But I had my craving for cheese cake, after having my favorite several times at the Cheese Cake Factory restaurant during the trip. I knew I had to bake this simple, yet great marble cheese cake.
So, if baking a cheese cake was your dream, it wasn’t anymore. I have the simplest recipe for you to follow.
“Get a child to get oyster mushrooms in this simple vegetarian Chow Mien? How about having it better by adding the super food, Quinoa, as well as liquid aminos, into his meals?”
My son loves the Chinese yellow noodle (Chinese alkaline noodle), usually being prepared in soup as fish balls noodle soup selling at most of the hawker centers, food courts and coffee shops in Singapore and other parts of Asia.
This thin yellow noodle would also commonly be cooked in fried noodle (Chinese Chow Mien) or the Mee Goreng (Indian fried noodle) style which easily found selling outside. Having that said, these fried noodles selling at the stores are usually over seasoned or spicy.
“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”
In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.
If you are a vegetarian, use the mushroom sauce. Otherwise, the Abalone sauce is the best to go with this stir fry! That’s because the golden spring mushroom (金源菇) used in this recipe yields a tinge of ‘seafood’ taste after cooked. Hence, adding abalone sauce was sure to good in enhancing the flavor of this seafood-tasted mushroom in the dish.
“Hotel stay here, good or bad for your vacation stay?”
In case you wish to know which hotel we stayed in Malacca, here’s the pretty new Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, we did.
The interior of the hotel and its rooms was elegant, spacious and looked classy, with the reasonable room rate offered. There is also a large balcony in each guest room, for a view or breeze.
Bed in room was comfortable, and there is a 2-seater sofa as well as ‘see-through’ bath provided in the room. Not all rooms come with straight sofa seats, my parents’ room had the curvy seats which are unfit to lay flat down overnight. The hotel provides extra bedding at a reasonable rate, if third guest requires it. However, it’s really not necessary to pay for an extra bed for your young toddler who usually co-sleeps with you, even though the hotel booking websites stated so, as one of their terms & conditions.
