What would you do when comes to weekend? Do you do all the cleaning like mop floor, wash car, wash clothes, wash toilets, wash drying area, clean your stove, basin, bathrooms, etc. I guess many of us, the working wife or the working mother that without a maid will do this house chores right?  And do you turn on the TV and not watching but carrying on all the work?? Sounds familiar huh? I was basically doing all these when comes to weekend,  I even ‘listen’ to the movies instead of sitting down and watching it! So, I guess am not alone of doing such weird stuff right? One shot, listened and watched X–Men series … didn’t realize the whole movie was talking about human and mutants how to fight for staying in one planet. Anyway, the entire movie, can see these super heroes how to fight with the bad ones and so on. Though it isn’t that dry, some how, can never able to understand the entire movie story line, it’s just like the other movie named Transformer. I guess I am that kind of pers

  Whenever people tells us they are going for Hutton Lane Koay Teow Th’ng, many of us will think of the Fook Chiew Café Koay Teow Th’ng. Well, how many of us think of this? This is my first time visit and I noticed their soup base is definitely a thumb up for it. Not that I find the others not nice or what, however some stall just not too consistent in making their soup. At times it’s just as bland as normal soup with MSG. This coffee shop is easy to recognize, it is same row as the Eden Coffee House, and it used to be so famous that you ought to call for reservation. And it is also opposite the MPPP multi–storey car park too. Apart from what Sin Chew Press has written about this stall, hubby also got to know a little history about it, this was originally established from the old tau keh 40 to 50 over years ago. It was operated by a small trishaw behind the back lane. And from there, they have built their regular customers and the business grew from there. Currentl

  This is my first attempt of making this Hakka dish, in fact, it has to make the Hakka Nam Yee Sauce before hand. However due to time consuming, I have cutting it real short and also due to health reason I decided not to deep fried the pork belly which the recipe said it’s required. This Hakka Nam Yee Sauce is also can be used for Hakka Steamed Pork Belly with Yam ( 芋頭扣肉 ). Head Let’s start with the sauce, ingredients were easily obtained from the market, in fact, I did not blend it as I do not have a food processor, … how I wish to have one now… and it would be absolutely perfect if it’s a Kitchen Aid brand. Ok, to cut it short,…. Here’s the ingredients – a.        8 pieces of nam yee / fermented red bean curd b.       3 tbsp chopped garlic c.        3 tbsp chopped shallots d.       1 tsp chopped ginger e.        2 star anise f.        5cm cinnamon stick g.       3 tbsp oyster sauce h.       2 tbsp sugar i.         1 tsp sesame oil j.         2 tbsp S
