The real test came...

Remember I posted about teaching Jayden about not talking or taking anything from strangers?


The real test came yesterday. We're at this consumer thinggy in BU and while I was busy listening to this woman selling some cleaning salt, suddenly I felt someone pulling my hand. So I looked to my right and I saw Jayden pulling my hands and pointing at this man. He was holding a small cup of Yogurt ice cream --> offering to Jayden.

Hehe the lil boy didn't dare to take it until I said "Say thank you to uncle la..". He quickly said Thank You and happily ate the yogurt Ice cream. So yeah, he learn the lesson well. He can only accept something with my permission.

And I thought my son is blur about the entire thinggy. *Phew*

But then am I gonna stop reminding him? Nolah.. just today while gardening I saw the news on some foreign beggars that was featured not long ago. So I quickly asked Jayden to come over and have a look at the picture. "You see, this person you don't even know if the person is a girl or boy. Cos this person took the ice cream and followed the uncle la. So they cut the ears, cut the hand and you see, they ask them to sit under the sun like that.  You want?"

You should see his facial expression. His eyes were so big and he looked so shocked. He was stonned for a while when he saw the picture and he ran away shouting NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I cook Pot Pie!

What do you do when you're upset with your boss, too much work to do and stress to the max? You go down and cook pot pie. Hehe

I gathered some:
Left over chicken (ok I lied. Its fresh chicken)
Button Mushroom
Mixed Vege
A can of mushroom soup

Chop some onion and throw into a pan with butter. Sizzle it abit and throw in chicken pieces, button mushroom, mixed vege and lastly mushroom soup. Add salt (not too much-the soup is already salty) and throw in some grinded pepper. Add a lil water and leave it to cool.

The topping I used some potatoes, which I have boiled and peeled the skin. Mash it all up, add butter, salt and some milk. And you have Mashed potato. Slowly spread it onto the filling that I have cooked earlier.

Glaze the topping with some egg and I threw in some grated parmesan cheese. Bake for 20mins ( How i know? Estimate la. hantam only)

Tadaaa!!! Kids its time for lunch!

My piece of pie.

It's Mental Sch Holiday Week!

It's school holidays. You know what I mean? Means the kids got stucked at home 24/7 with me. Although Jayden only goes to sch for that 3 hours but then that 3 hours really makes a big difference. Plus my niece is here during the weekdays. Lagi mental. Early morning you can hear them screaming,laughing, blasting my tv, crying for toys blablabla. One word. HAVOC.

Plus I am rushing a few projects so that I can clear every damn thing on my to-do list and start a new year so lagi headache. So while I am rushing for my work, I can hear Mr.Bean, Phineas and Ferb, High Sch Musical as the background music. And kids will come running to my room, sometimes laughing, sometimes crying, sometimes pretend to sell me thing "Mami I give you six dollar and ninety nice cents" or the small one will come and give me the money he stole from my wallet and asked me to say "Teh Kiuk" (thank you).

Sometimes they will come with this look.

Just broken an egg from the fridge and quickly ran up to my room and said "Sorry mami. Mami hold hand mami.. Mami fren you (me)".

Or the kids would giggle and come in with this...

Do you know what he is wearing? No?

Now you know?

haha Its a catwoman mask that I helped a friend sew as sample. It was supposed to look like this..

Don't laugh so hard ok?

Can you see how havoc it is during sch holidays?

Sasha Cook: Seaweed Roll

It's been a looong looong time since I have posted my masak masak here. It's always very pressuring to give some food to my neighbour cos her hub is very particular and fussy about food. So that day, I cooked extra and after everyone tried (maid + hub = guinea pigs) and said its "ok" then only I passed a plate to her. When she saw the plate, she said "Can I try one now ah?" She said "yummy" and "sasha I wanna learn this also. Good to serve when we have some guests over". Some of you might know this but what the heck, I already took some pictures. So why not post it here right? muaahaha

Rolled it too small, so you cannot really see the pattern nicely done. Better to roll it "fatter".

Very Simple dish. Preparation is longer than cooking time but if you plan it well, I think it's a sap sap suey dish, if you know what I mean.

Ingredients 1:
Egg curd Sheets ( go pasar and tell the taufu woman, she will know what to give you)
Japanese Seaweed

Ingredients 2:
Fish paste
Minced Meat (you like: pork/chicken/beef)
Water Chestnut, cut to small small cubes
Carrot ( cut small small cubes)

Ingredient 3:
Crab Sticks
Aspagarus (didn't use this cos couldn't find it)



How to do it:
1. Mix fish paste + minced meat+ water chestnut cubs + carrot cubes + seasoning
2. Spread fish paste mixture onto the egg curd sheets.
3. Place seaweed sheets on the fish paste spread.
4. Another layer of fish faste.
5. Put carrot strip + asparagus + crab stick on edge and roll it like sushi roll.
6. secure and steam for 5mins.
7. Remove from wok and coat it with egg and cover it with cornflour and deep fry till golden brown.
8. Makan!
