Miss Funny Expression

A comedy edition with continuation from Miss Kiam Pa Face which Clarice enjoyed very much...

















And 2 smiley ones :))



湘颖走走

Kind of wobbly. I must buy her real soled shoes now!

Cooks this week

Was a bit mad about bacons this week...

Inspired by R's fb pics and could not help it but to make some for dinner. Too hungry that day and I had my dinner at 6pm!! K was back late that day. Luckily I didn't wait for him!



Made it again when my baby bro came over with his friend. Better presentation this time :)



Used enoki mushrooms instead of shimeiji. Both were equally good. Can't make this too often. Before I could clog my arteries, I think I clog the waistband of my underwear and bottoms first :(



Remember I cooked congee for my lonely lunch using the leftover stock last week? I promised to be hardworking this week right? 4 1/4 hrs to boil my chicken soya bean stock and another 1.5hrs to cook the congee! Even K agreed this was on similar standard with Crystal Jade's congee. Or maybe that was because I asked him repetitively yes or not? yes or not? yes or not? And he had to agree with me... Anyway for those ppl wondering why does CJ's congee taste so "creamy"? They use new crop rice. I did not use that but I used short grain rice which can also make the congee to have that consistency. Don't use normal Thai rice if you want it that way.



Steamed egg tofu with minced pork. The minced pork quite tough. Did I oversteam it or all lean meat that's why?



Veggie wasn't steamed together. I poured veggie with some sauce over the steamed dish. See AJ always like to do extra and end up have to wash extra frying pan. Btw, I take back my dislike for Shanghai Greens :)

湘颖走天桥

Before leaving home this afternoon, I took a few shots of little湘颖. Doesn't she look very hiao and model wannebe? Can't believe how much my little girl has grown up :)

















I think she has the potential to model for shoes as well :P



My darling is still a baby to me no matter what...

AJ has a new bag!

Hello, when I say new bag, don't be so alarmed can? That's a new grocery bag from the atas supermarket at ION for $3. Glamour or not? It makes ppl know I shopped at 360 (act class) and at the same time great for bringing to the supermarket nearby. Just the right size and all. My other grocery bags not so sturdy. See I can't buy anymore bags buy this one also can make myself happy :))

Anyway it's nice la.

Cooks this week

Again, very hardworking this week :)

It was a lazy afternoon on National Day and we had initially planned on buying lunch from downstairs but I had later on decided to make a simple lunch instead.

The lunch which K never hiam which means pass. Honestly this one should make those so-called 茶餐厅in Singapore ashamed for charging like $10++ on a bowl of instant noodles. The real ones in HK don't overcharge like that and they are even charging service and tax on that kind of food.



Korean grilled chicken. Why so fancy name? Cuz the chicken was marinated with Korean chilli paste. For a good 8 hours ok. The paste was very very salty. More salty than spicy but still good.





鱼翅瓜鸡汤. A bit of hassle to do it since I have to steam the shark's fin melon separately, shred it and boil it in the soup. Well worth the effort cuz little XY loves it so much :) Notice the corn which has a mixture of white and yellow tones? I think it is called pearl corn. Not always available but I was lucky that they have it on the day I do my marketing. Super sweet and juicy!



A dinner of fried rice and a glamourly dressed up dish.



晴记XO炒饭 (See I am so innovative. Don't think that staying home makes my brain mouldy ok). I have to perfect my fried rice cuz you know why? My husband adores the fried rice at the zi char stall downstairs so much that sometimes when I announced not cooking dinner, he will be so happy and immediately say want to eat the fried rice. How sad can it be when I always think that I cook a decent enough dinner??



I swear it looks quite like 盐酥鸡from afar... But it's just Tulip luncheon meat. I coat those with corn flour before frying to make it look nicer. Tulip is much nicer than SPAM.



炸云吞. Pic says all...



I also made the boiled version. To tell the truth, I overstuffed it and it feels like eating meatballs or a lump of lean meat. Not very tasty at all.



The shredded chicken mushroom noodles to go with the wantons. Soup not pictured.



What did I do with the leftover soya bean and chicken stock that I boiled for the wanton noodles? As usual, I kept the stock for my next meal like I always did with other soups. As I spent over 3 hours to simmer my soups, I find it a waste if I only cook it enough for 1 meal so I do make extra. This time round instead of making noodle soup with the stock, I made congee. Below shown is the finished product and I must say I am most proud of myself. This is the MOST delicious congee I ever eaten besides the Crystal Jade one. Ok ok I know self praise is no praise but I can't hide it when it's nice right? :D This was for my lonely lunch and it was the best lonely lunch I had in ages.







I'll have to be hardworking to boil the stock early in the day and then use the stock to cook the congee for K one of these days. He will be so impressed with me!

Happy 45th Birthday Singapore!

It was just another PH to us. No big celebration :)

Nonetheless I put in some effort to dress up my darling in red/white. She was pretending to be interested in reading her colour book.



Were at Rine's for a while in the afternoon and quite lucky to get some good pics. Good lighting leh.



The girl who was stationary on the platform as it was a little too high for her to get down but she managed to climb up many many times though.



Bean looks so tiny here...



Doing her usual kiam pa face.



Arrogant look.



I call this "froggy" style.



Fumbling with her Baby Bites.



In her cranky mood... meaning want to sleep!



Without flash...
