My Valentine’s All-Day Breakfast

“Romantic coffee pancakes with smoked salmon, cheesy scrambled egg & flowers.”

Valentine’s Day is always romantic. Though we hope that everyday is just as great as the festive day itself, but who doesn’t wish it to be a little more special and memorable, and simply to mark the day.

If cooking dinner is not for you, you want to be brought to romantic candle-lit dinner, don’t you? Still, wish to do something for your loved one, how about a fanciful breakfast yo kick start your romantic day? More

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.


This stick rice with mango wasn’t too difficult to assemble. In fact, the cooking was pretty versatile. You may steam the glutinous rice with any steamware you have in your kitchen as long as getting the sticky rice cooked to the right texture you liked (usually done in 20-25 minutes). If my recipe for the coconut sauce isn’t what you prefer, no fret, too. For one who likes the saltish flavour to be more visible in the coconut sauce, add bigger pinch of salt. If you have sweet-tooth, increase sugar, instead. Otherwise, use just the coconut milk without any addition of condiment. What you need is to taste while cooking to find your perfect flavor. No hard and fast rule. Keep trying, keep cooking. Enjoy! More

Mango Strawberry Cream (Meringue) Cake

“Birthday Cake? Yes, this surely an impressive piece to make!”

Wanted to make my usual mango cake with the packet of Optima sponge cake premix given by a friend. However, wasn’t really content with baking a cake with premix this time, also had an urge to decorate my cake with mango roses, this would make my cake top heavier than usual, I do not want my cake to collapse. Thus, here I had this idea to make a denser cake so that it could hold my elaborated decoration/ topping well. I used the premix to make my own recipe this time.

Yes, cake might be dense, but neither hard nor dry, though it’s not really the soft and fluffy kind. It was still moist enough. But at least, for sure, taste of this cake was great. Stronger flavor and more aromatic, too. And most of all, no worries of toppling cake. :) More
