Overnight Oat Porridge

“Many reasons to start eating healthy oat meal porridge”

It has been in trend to make overnight oat meal for breakfast in the female community, but I have more reasons to start having it on daily basis. I needed this healthy low-fat meal to kick start my dieting plan.

However, as many would agree, not many would eat oat porridge regularly. So many people, including myself, were having this impression that oat meal is for the weak or aging folks…. but but, let me tell you now, it’s not true! read more

Snow Pear Herbal Tea


“Great herbal tea for hectic life”

Just come back from a 2-stop trip, all the way up to the north of Malaysia. We visited The Lost World, Tambun, Ipoh, followed by Hatyai, Thailand, in 6 days. :)

Yes, very tight schedule. That’s why we were worn out after the trip. Body heat arose with feverish feeling. I knew it was time for herbal tea, then.

Snow pear has its cooling effect for such heatiness in body. To eliminate ‘heat in liver’ (we referred it as 肝火 ‘Gan Huo‘), I added Sha Shen (沙參) which claims to cleanse and rejuvenate liver health. read more

Kiwi Mango Chicken

“Tired of sweet & sour pork dish? How about “sweet & sour” fruity chicken dish this time?!”

ZESPRI® Kiwifruit wrote to me recently, asking if I was interested to try their kiwifruit so as to create a recipe using kiwifruit. Yes, why not? I think my readers and friends would surely like to cook a dish using fresh fruits, that was my thought.

Kiwifruit, loaded with vitamin C (2X the amount of orange), dietary fibre, potassium, folate, vitamin E, carotenoids and other antioxidants. It has low GI and is low in fat, and calories (<60kcal/100g). read more

Chayote Chicken Soup (合掌瓜鸡汤)

“Quickest & simplest soup fix for yummiest & lightest taste”

Not sure why, but it seems more and more people are cooking this, Chayote (Pear Squash). In Chinese, we called it Fo Shou Gua 佛手瓜, while Cantonese called it the Hup Jeung Gua 合掌瓜.

Until l I watched a new TVB cooking program hosted by Ms Maria Cordero (again), I wasn’t sure how to cook this fruit, even though I saw it in the market umpteen times. Oh, it’s so simple to cook, actually!

To my (pleasant) surprise, it was soft and mild (to almost tasteless in a good way) to eat. Most of all, this low-sugar, low-caloric fruit makes a good and healthy soup. Oh yes, it’s very mild in taste and because of that, I pan-fried the chicken leg before placing them into the soup… I have made myself a simple and delicious soup recipe for this! Not just a soup, it’s a 1-dish meal where I could eat the protein (chicken), the green (Chayote) and drink the nourishing soup! Trust me, you (especially the weight watcher) will like it, too. read more

Pumpkin Pancake with (Banana) Ice Cream

“Delicious home-flavour pancake in restaurant standard, what’s more you are asking for.”

This will surely become my frequent cooking from now on!

I loved pumpkin, I loved pancake, I loved ice cream, I loved dessert, and it has all! It is all…. the healthier version.

I realised that this pancake can be adapted in many different ways, easily. I am already thinking of the banana pancake, strawberry pancake, blueberry pancake, pandan pancake, chocolate pancake, and many more, but let’s start with this pumpkin version here…… read more
