Home-Cooked Saturday Dinners.

October 22, 2009

Every Saturday’s spent with great food, great company with my family and well, the usual Taiwanese drama on TV. It’s what we call our Saturday culture.

Family time together should never be neglected. We come together coz of food? Or is food the reason we come together? I’d choose the latter.


I love close up shots of my food. Makes me feel close enough to smell it. *sniffs*


Instant Homemade Glutinous Rice Balls.

December 17, 2008

I love Chinatown Food‘s glutinous rice balls or tangyuan. My mummy was so sweet to make this for my sister and I for supper.

Instead of a plain sugared soup, she used canned peanut soup with a little water added. You can get this easily at supermarkets in Singapore. Boil till the tangyuan floats and then eat! 🙂

There were two colours, representing two kinds of rice balls. I prefer the peanut filled ones in pink.

…and my sister prefers the sesame filled ones in white.

Yum-o! 😛

Simple Dinner Affair At Home.

November 25, 2008

I’ve been missing a lot of home-cooked food for the last month so I was delighted to finally tuck into one this week. 🙂

Prawns and spring onions in a ‘crab’-chilli sauce.

Deep fried fish-wasn’t entirely pleasant for me as I kept getting tiny bones stuck between my teeth.

Fried Kangkong and bean sprouts with garlic and sliced chilli.

I’ve got love in my tummy.

I Love Chilli.

June 28, 2008

Freshly pounded chilli, mixed with garlic, onions, sugar and salt. Tossed in deep fried fish. Homemade heaven.



Chilli Crab Sauce & Deep Fried Buns.

June 10, 2008

After a Chilli-Crab dinner last Sunday, my sister and I were still craving for more of the sauce which we dipped deep fried buns in. So we got my helper to make it for lunch the following Monday. 🙂

It was delicious but there was still loads left over as my sister and I were overexcited and had asked my helper to fry all the buns. Whoops.

Tasty miniature buns.

Chilli Crab sauce with prawns. Yum-O.

I am one blessed girl. 

Dinner Photos With My Dear Fuji Finepix F31.

April 18, 2008

I finally had my fixed up Fuji Finepix F31 camera delivered to my place this evening! 🙂 And I just had to use it to snap away at my dinner. I was so close to kissing my camera, heh.

A huge bowl of carrot, potato & onion soup in our pressure cooker plus my mum’s hand. 🙂

Sesame chicken, stir-fried with ginger and spring onions.

Prawns and onions in a super spicy sweet and sour sauce. It was my favourite dish tonight.

Dinner isn’t complete without a vegetable dish. Spinich with chilli-padi.

😀 I am so happy I got back my fabulous camera.

A Colourful Dinner.

April 14, 2008

When I was a young girl, I rarely enjoy home-cooked meals. Therefore, I am very thankful and blessed that I get to eat home-cooked meals so often now.

Sweet and sour prawns.

Spinich with dried shrimp.

Deep fried fish.

And a Cantonese dinner isn’t complete without a soup dish.

I’m a real blessed girl.

A Vegetarian Dinner From Daddy.

April 13, 2008

Sometimes one just needs to eat simple and healthy. I got my chance when my dad whipped up this vegetarian noodles with fresh vegetables and mushrooms. Served in plain soup with just a dash of sesame oil and pepper added to it. Yummy!

Sigh, my Fuji Finepix F31 takes such great photographs with very little effort. I hope that my new Canon IXUS 860IS (aka Canon Powershot SD 870) won’t disappoint me. I’ve got high expectations. I’d be getting it this coming Wednesday.

Crazy Amount Of Food For 3 Girls.

April 2, 2008

Two of my girlfriends came over on Monday evening for a home-cooked meal, after much talk about my helper who cooks so well. We came home to this large spread of food on my dining table, which we almost manage to finish.

After dinner, we had a great time chatting and laughing. This sure is a good break from a hectic schedule in school.

Fried Rice.

March 27, 2008

Fried rice seems like a pretty easy dish to make; pick up whatever you can find in the kitchen and fry it together with rice. This is only partially true. The texture of the rice is very important – it needs to be moist but firm.

Two ways to ensure that your cooked rice is moist and firm.
1. Cook the rice the night before and refrigerate it. Fry it the next day with your other ingredients.
2. After washing the uncooked rice, leave it out to dry for about an hour before cooking it in the rice cooker. Let it cool slightly after it is cooked.

I thank my helper for the second tip that works for her each time she cooks fried rice. 🙂
