Simple Salad and Fruits with Honey Mustard & Thousand Island Dressing for Dinner

“It’s good if we could eat simple.”

Before sharing more on my curry chicken dish, I would like to go healthy first. I had salad for dinner tonight because my detox diet program starts today! :)

I read an article in the Sunday newspaper which talks about 1-week detoxification. It reminds me that it’s also about time for ME to go on some diet plans. Ya, I started my day with a glass of fresh lemon juice water in my empty stomach…Then, here comes my homemade salad with fruits… Oh well, I know I am not supposed to put these kinds of dressing I have added in my salad, but… Give me some allowances, alright?! I couldn’t go on full force just like this. Time to warm up, please (chuckling).

Homemade Mango & Strawberry Salsa

“Fruits day, it’s not necessary to be in liquid or paste form. I make fruits into refreshing briny salsa dish.”

I saw a very great Japanese pork chop cutlet from a Japanese variety show in tv, and decided to try it out as it looks really alluring (Show you the recipe next time!).

To make my pork chop meal more balance with both dry and moist dishes, the fruit salsa came to my mind. I had thus craving to make mt own salsa as I find it a great complement to something dry, like pork chop, since it contrasts the taste and texture.. The super refreshing mouthfeel to have a chilled side dish like salsa for piping hot pork chop is also what I was looking for.

My Lo-Hey Ceremonies in the Year of 2011!

“After so many Lo-Hei ceremony, we are now becoming more and more prosperous with good fortune luck!”

Chinese Lunar New Year has finally come to an end with happiness. This year, will be the most prosperous year for me as well as many who had tossing up the good to better luck with the SIN-MAL popular ritual, the symbolic Lo-Hey ceremony. Due to my current active social circles, many Lo-Hey sessions have been made at home and organized in and out of office, with colleagues, friends and family. I’ve taken the Lo-Hey for a total of 12 times out of 15 days of CNY as well as the pre & post CNY. Among the many different Yu Sheng dishes I have tasted this year, the best tasting one will be the Yu Sheng pack from Kwong Cheong Thye, and second best goes to New Moon brand Abalone Yu Sheng, for home dining purposes. As for restaurant Lo-Hey, I liked it from Peach Garden.

“Singapore’s century-old Soy bean products manufacturer, Kwong Cheong Thye, which sells not just the popular seasoning sauce and condiment, they offer one of the tastiest Yu Sheng packages, too!”

I know I will feel guilty if I don’t share this great condiment/ sauces shop with you for getting good Chinese New Year dry food goodness.

This shop was recommended and I was brought there by one of my colleagues recently, great for getting CNY food stuff. One of the most popular CNY goodies there has to be the pre-packed Yu Sheng ingredients, of course!

Fresh Vegetable Salad with Japanese Seasoned Vinegar

“Fresh vegetable salad with delicious low-fat seasoned vinegar dressing”

I am on diet recently. After a long period of festive feast, I have to go on diet and exercise. Just signed up a 1-year fitness package together with two other female colleagues. We determined we’ll stick to our plan, at least twice a week of work-out session at the gym. Eat lesser and healthier. I eat vegetable salad as a meal, sometimes.

Many say eating veggie salad will surely light, but in fact, it’s much depends on its dressing. Eating salad with full mayonnaise cream is surely not light. There are so many different kinds of salad dressing in the market. The tastier, the heavier, at large.
