Schooling days

Hi folks!

Lately, the Olympic games as well as seeing some shots of my former school great athletes brings back some nostalgic memories of the good old days.

Back then, my sister and I would represent our team and eventually school in sports events. It is certainly much more fun compared to studying in the classroom all day.

I love running in the field and alas lying on it and look at the sky after each practice session. Not to mention the privilege to take time to practice while others are studying in the classroom.

KY is just like me, she loves all these co-curricular activities more than her schoolwork.

She would joined robotics, cheer leading, ballet, gymnastic, swimming, etc. That made her day. Whatever excite her or made her days are due to her getting the chance to participate these activities at school or after school.

I love my kids involved in all these physical activities besides having their usual routine and schoolwork.

Hopefully, they will enjoy these and have fond memories like i did.

Cheers to a happy schooling days....

One pot nourishing porridge

Hi folks!

KY asking for steamboat last night thus we had steamboat for dinner with our(or my) new kitchen toy.

Didn't manage to capture picture cos was busy preparing and then eating. Steamboat dinner is supposed to be "interactive" with lots of chance to be proactive to scoop the ingredients we like to be cooked and also the time to mingle and chat while waiting for the ingredient to be cooked. One lovely meal if you have the time for slow meal.

And here is what I've made for breakfast today..one pot nourishing porridge cooked with the leftover of fresh ingredient from the steamboat last night. Added some red dates and tong kwei for the extra nourishing. I find it very comforting to have some tong kwei and herbs especially after each menstrual cycle completed(ladies you will know what I meant) to replenish the Qi and energy.

Do what are you having for breakfast today during your lovely weekend?

Bon apetit!

Cheers!

Yesterday I was feeling under the weather but it's my firstborn 10-year-old birthday. Not able to gather enough strength to drive out to buy her an eggless cake(her brother is has allergy to eggs), I googled for eggless chocolate cake recipe and managed to come up with my first edible eggless cake for her birthday (after napping for 5 hours) using my handy kitchen toy- Philips Pressure Cooker.

Here's some pictures of pur mini-celebration:

Room makeover for two boys

Hi folks!

As KY is fast growing into her puberty, one of my goal this year is to move her brother out of her room.

In order to do that we have to get another wardrobe for the two boys to share. Thus, we got one sliding door Trysil wardrobe from Ikea@MYR799 during my Passion Day off(yep my company is so awesome that it gave every employee a Passion Day off day to do whatever they are passionate about...and I am passionate on room improvement and decoration) and finally get to install it during Raya break (yeah, without realizing later last weekend this wardrobe was on sale for only MYR579 during their member day sale!!! Oh we might not able to squeeze in to IKEA on their member day not to mention the wardrobe might be out of stock..so it's ok).

Little did we know me and DH took one day to fix this wardrobe(actually we started 11am on first day of Raya and continued the next day as it was really tiring :P as we have to practically move everything out of the room before we could start the installation.

My New Kitchen Toy and Well-being habit

Hi folks!

As age catching up, I find myself needed some nourishing soup and exercise regime to keep up with the responsibilities I have everyday.

Thus I invested this double boiler that can make single(or can be shared for 2 as well) porridge, 4 hard boiled eggs, desserts and nourishing soup.

I have been diligently using it to make some herbal soup(taste awesome! Just like those in the restaurant!) and desserts(yummy).
