V-Day Special – Romantic Pinkie Dragon Fruit Juice

“If you aren’t a alcohol drinker, this healthy & low-fat romantic pink fruit smoothie should be your top option for this coming V-Day.”

I had this similar fruit juice smoothie at the Golden Shoe hawker centre at Raffles Place. Its unusual flavor wasn’t that impressive when I first tasted it, but it didn’t stop me from giving it a second try since my close colleague had constantly reminded me how delicious was this special fruit juice. Ok, I finally agreed with her and started liking it more and more after a few tries. It is priced at $2.20 per big cup, and this considers a very good price for a superior type of fruit juice selling at Raffles Place district. However, it is still not that economical to have a few dollars beverage on daily basis when I can simply drink some kinds of tea or coffee beverages provided by my office (smile). Oh well, I made this by myself at home now. I did not want to deliberately buy so many different kinds of fruit just for this, but it happened that I had given a big basket of fruits hamper as my get-well-soon gift after my surgery treatment. I, then, had most of the fruits I needed to make this beverage. So, here it is to be shared in my blog, especially V-Day is just next month! read more

Swiss Chicken Wing Recipe (瑞士鸡翼)

“Sweet Swiss chicken wings. Simply easy to cook, and delicious to savour.”

Thanks to my readers who love my recipes. You gave me ideas on what food to cook and explore at times. I was requested to cook Swiss chicken wing this time. In fact, I wanted to cook this dish since my last taste of the Swiss wing at the cafe in Hong Kong during my trip there back in Sep.

As well-known by many foodies, especially Hong Kong residents, Swiss chicken wing is not originated from Switzerland. Swiss wing is believed to be a great creation by a Hong Kong chef. Hence, Swiss chicken wing is popularly served in many cafes and restaurants in Hong Kong. Some even considered this as HK cafe delicacy. read more

Rum Raisin Chocolate Lava Cake Pudding (冧酒提子心太軟)

“Impress your loved ones with this homemade romantic heart-melting sweet savoury this season”

Merry Merry Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!

Remember I told you that I took up a baking lesson during my last Hong Kong trip back in Sep? I went there to learn an iconic & famous chocolate dessert which is very popular in Hong Kong, the Chocolate Lava Cake Pudding aka Melting Heart. In Chinese word: 心太軟. Pronounced in Mandarin as “Xin Tai Ruan“, and In Cantonese, “Sum Tai Yun“. It literally means heart too soft. Just like the flowy chocolate lava in the cake, it’s soft and… melting.. Try to imagine you bake this “Melting Heart” dessert for your loved one and he/ she feels so touching with his/ her heart melting to your love… Ahh…. (smile). read more

Overnight Camping & Visit in Jurong Bird Park Singapore

“Sleeping with the Flamingos”

Hey! I told you that I went for a sleepover camp at Jurong Bird Park on one of the Fridays in December. Yes, pitching of tents for a night inside the park. However, don’t assume that it will surely an outdoor camping. Sad to say, it was not! We camped IN a air-conditioned function room by the flamingo lake. That’s the camping experience for our precious Singapore children! Wahaha..

Actually, I personally find it not a bad idea with an indoor camping as there will be no mosquito bite, need not to feel hot in the sleep.. All we had is cooling air in the tent in that ‘snory night’.. read more

Minestrone Soup

“The nights’re getting colder and colder even in my year-long summer country, Singapore. So, nothing’s better than having a hot hearty soup which easily cooked at home.”

I always like Minestrone soup, and will choose this Italian vegetables soup whenever given a choice when dining out for Western/ Italian meal, but this was the first time I have this soup cooked at home. I wouldn’t cook this for the family, usually, because I am the only one at home like tomato-based soup (Sob….)! None of them likes Minestrone soup since they are not a fan of tomato based soup. They wouldn’t mind chicken noodle soup, but not the Minestrone. That’s why I had never cooked this favourite vegetables soup at home! :( read more

Walnut & Diced Chicken Stir-Fry (核桃炒鸡丁)

“Healthy delicious chicken dish. What’s more?!”

Crunchy on walnuts, flavorful on chicken dices with mild sweetness yielded from the addition of honey in this dish. This is a dish likable by both the kids and adults.

In fact, I have this recipe and had the dish cooked up quite some time ago, but did not share so quickly due to lack presentation effect in my food photo. It’s too monotonous with just a single tone of brownish colour on the plate. So, I wanted to cook this again to take and show you a nicer picture of this dish before I could post it up. However, I decided to post this recipe now, after reconsideration as I think the sharing of any good recipe is more meaningful than showing off pretty picture. read more
