Mashed Potato In Cup

“Mashed Potato with 2 toppings of sweet & salty that never fails to impress. Served in petite cup size, just as perfect as the canapés for your house party.”

Looking for something to be served at your house party? Or a quick snack before your dinner date? Maybe for an afternoon tea?

This was one of the sides I had in my food library brain that I wished to share. Previously, this mashed potato was served in large single portion meant for 1-2 of us at home as our quick lunch. I thought it might be better to remain it as a side and to serve at a tea party or something. I decorated it in cups, instead. read more

Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden at Botanic Gardens


“$7m green space meant to give the youngs an insight into natural world”

Isn’t sure where to go with the children over the weekends? That’s this great park that would speak for itself.

Sharing a post on the Asia’s first garden for children was part of my assignment. Yes, this great place opens just around your neighborhood here in Singapore!

This newly opened Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden at the Botanic Gardens (at the Bukit Timah core) in Singapore was a great place to nurture a child on appreciation to the nature. For the active ones, this certainly was a place with extensively large space for them to deplete their energy in a positive way. read more

French Toast with Honey

“Makes breakfast/ tea break a wonderful moment.”

I always make this for tea time or when I can’t finish the loaf of bread purchased more than 3 days (it’s harden and not so nice to eat it plain).

One could easily swipe away 4 slices of toast made with this simply-easy recipe. I could at least eat 3 slices at one go, no joke. Milk bread, honey, and berries, I considered this dish as healthy snack and good breakfast.

As for weight-watcher like myself, snacking 2 slices of toasts with berries and 1 spoonful of maple syrup (30g) at about 300 kcal seems a little too “heavy”. So, I prefer eating only the toasts and berries without syrup. This helps me to save 90 kcal. If go with choice of light bread (low-fat), it’ll save you another 7 kcal. If just the toasts by itself counts about 183 kcal. read more

Mango Smoothie with Fresh Mango in Glass


“Healthy smoothie treats for everyone!”

This is a very simple homemade smoothie which doesn’t even need a blender to do the mixing. By all mean, go ahead with a blender, if it’s easier for you. The consistency between using a fork and into a blender differs a little. The later certainly yields more refine and smoother consistency.

This dessert takes less than 10 min to make 2 glasses.

Serves 2 large glasses
Ingredients:
2 honey mangoes, chilled and peeled
1 cup of plain yogurt (low-fat)
2 tablespoons of breakfast cereal (eg honey stars or cornflakes), lightly crushed
2 tablespoons of honey
