“The Main Course @ Club Med, Bintan Ria”

Just couldn’t stop sharing with you how much fun & food we had over the 5-day trip in Club Med. Here we had some main food to showcase. Good and not too good, just wanted you to have some brief ideas so that you could choose the best among the wide choices and seemingly unlimited spreads. :)


1) Scallop & Asparagus in XO Sauce. These sautéed scallops were nicely done to its tender and juicy state. With XO sauce added to the scallops, taste was robust and delicious. More

Holiday with Fun & Food in Club Med, Bintan Ria (Island)

“The dainty appetizers and light bites @ Club Med, Binta Ria”

What else? It was all about the food we had during our 5-day Bintan Island trip! :) Just to share with you some of these unique and luscious appetizers…

1) Chicken fillet in sliced cucumber roll, and the plating, complete with pineapple cubes as well as some sort of pineapple juice reduction as its sauce. Texture of chicken was juicy and the cucumber yielded a refreshing crunch to it. The pineapple cubes also complement well with the chicken cucumber rolls. Overall taste was not over powering, but enough to fill your palate pleasantly. I thought the dish looked easy to assemble it at home, I should just try to replicate my version of it one day. :)

2) This Ceasar salad here was definitely more refine looking than those from other places. It was tasteful! More

Macaroni Soup with Seaweed

“Healthy & Light Meal for the Family tonight! Tasty Macaroni in Clear Soup!”

“Special delivery” to Ray, my reader. He requested a Macaroni soup recipe, and I thank him for liking my recipes!

Soup-based Macaroni suits all diets. It’s a low fat and healthy! Easy to make, it takes me less than 30 minutes to get it served. No long hour boiling is required. More

Fried Prawns Fritters with Fruity Cheese Topping

“Indulge your taste buds with a treat of this cheesy and fruity fried prawns dish.”

I had leftover mozzarella cheese in my refrigerator. Did not want to keep for too long. How shall I use it to prepare dinner, besides using it for pizza making?

Actually, I intended to fry just the battered prawns which are tasty enough to eat it just by itself. Uh huh! Let me cook cheesy fried prawns then! Since all of us love cheese, might as well make it a ‘wet’ dish instead of eating it dry, right? More

Nata de Coco & Fruit Mixes in The Glass

“Just another way to serve your fruits, with Nata de Coco this time!”

I go supermarket almost every other day, to buy daily groceries and food as well as checking out information on any latest food or food-related products.

Nata de Coco – It might sound unfamiliar when first heard it, but you surely have tasted it before. In cafeteria, dessert store or elsewhere, just could not recall its name at times (smiling). It’s OK even if this is first time you heard about it.

Nata de Coco was originated from Philippines. It is chewy, juicy and slightly translucent, jelly-like coconut water (which has been fermented) in tiny cubes. Nata de Coco is high in dietary fiber. One of the best food/ snack for dieting, health conscious people like you and me, as it contains zero fat and cholesterol as well as low in calories. And, it’s tasty! Even though Nata de Coco is often sweetened, but its calories count only 60kcal per serving of generous portion. More

Cutie Pizza Bread

“Pizza bread for your children.”

Most of the children like pizza as it usually uses these two ingredients often favoured by the kids… tomato sauce and cheese!

Most children love pizza and first thing come to their mind if ask them “what’s for dinner”, is Pizza! They would be extremely happy to enjoy the dinner that evening. However, eating too much or too often might bring opposite spectrum of joy, the worries on health. Pizza is kinda fast food, and most of the pizza are very high in salt and fat. I often felt very thirsty after a pizza meal purchased from the pizzeria. More

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. 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! More
