'Do you know, deep fried yam cake tastes really really good?' my MIL says to me when she was eating the steamed yam cake I made. Really? I have try it out. I purposely steamed a new tray of yam cake for deep frying. After steaming the cake, I let the cake cool in room temperature and cut into bite size the next day. Just heat some oil in pan and deep fry the cake to golden brown color. These cake are crispy outside and soft inside. It goes best with some soy sauce. It tastes really good. Try it out yourself.

We visited to a chicken farm recently. This is a small scaled of farm not far away from my mum's house. My mum knows the owner, so we get the chance to visit this place. It was a good experience for me and the kids. They get to see how do hens lay eggs and how the eggs are collected by the workers. I thought it is good for my children to understand the origin source of their food in order to appreciate it.

We watched Cantonese Opera show at KLpac two months ago. We enjoyed the show very much, from my MIL 80 y.o to my youngest boy 4 y.o. We were there for two consecutive days and watched six performances. When I was at my daughter's age, I watched this show a lot with my grandma. And now, I am glad I have the opportunity to introduce this unique China's cultural heritage show to my children.

I am sharing some photos of the food we had during our recent Korea holiday. As some friends of mine asking whether we could adapt well to the local food in Korea. Well, yes we had kimchi almost every meal, but kimchi was just the side dish. Most of the time, we had rice together with seaweed soup, vegetables, tofu, and meat. Overall, we enjoyed the food. I especially love the Korean porridge. As for my kids, they just love the crispy seaweed sheets.
