Fan Choy a.k.a steamed rice 饭菜

I saw this Fan Choy in Honey Bee Sweet's IG. According to her, Fan Choy is a common breakfast in Singapore. It does look like Lor Mai Gai 糯米鸡 , but Fan Choy is consists of Char Siew (BBQ meat) and Hard- boiled eggs steamed with rice or glutinous rice.  I love everything with glutinous rice, immediately I make this Fan Choy ^_^.

Red Wine Beef Stew 红酒炖牛肉

Usually during weekend, we either eating out or prepare some foods that don't need to use wok to stir fry or deep fry. Something like this red wine beef stew. Since the thyme plant that I bought is growing well, so is time to use it to make this beef stew . If you have time,  you can even bake a focaccia or baguette to go with this beef stew. But that day weather wasn't good to bake bread, so I just bought from a bakery shop nearby.

Blueberry and White chocolate Mousse cake 蓝莓白巧克力慕斯蛋糕

This was the Birthday cake that I made for my daughter few weeks ago. The idea of this cake came from Jane. She tried a nice cake from a famous bakery shop during her trip to Seoul. After she described to me the taste, and I made few research, then I came out with this mousse cake which well received by everyone who was tasted!

Nasi Goreng Kampung (Malay fried rice) 马来炒饭

This fried rice really kampong style, got kangkung (water spinach), petai (stink beans), and ikan bilis ( anchovies), all are my favourite ! And I especially like the crunchy caramelized ikan bilis, so yum!

Kluang Mooncake 居鑾月餅

Do you know this famous mooncake from Kluang 居銮 ( a small town located at the state of Johor in Malaysia) ? I also recently know this mooncake. According to Johorkaki, Yuen Fatt 源發餅家was the first bakery shop to introduce the Shanghai style of mooncakes in Malaysia. And they shaped the Shanghai mooncake in an unique way that look like rugby ball for me, but some said it look like a mouse, a fox or fish. When my mom first look at this mooncake, she said it look like tortoise ^_^ (For Chinese, tortoise is a good symbol of long life). Anyway, i didn't get a chance to try the real Kluang mooncake. So i have to do it myself according to the taste that i read on few website. The outer pastry as described is melt-in-mouth type, immediately i think of my pineapple tart's pastry.

Madeleine 马德琳蛋糕

My little son Desmond like Madeleine a lot. It started when both of us watching a Taiwan TV drama together (the story line was about baking and love) the other day. He was attracted by this Madeleine and requested me to make for him. At first,  I was using the recipe provided in the drama which required to rest the batter overnight in the fridge. The madeleine turned out to be hard and quite dry but my son finished them all. I guess this recipe was failed due to no raising agent is added.
