Xuan Feng Ramen Restaurant | Krystal Point, Penang

If talk about my favourite Japanese food, ramen is one of them, especially tonkotsu ramen, tan tan ramen and many more. In Penang, there are not many restaurant selling this ramen, at least I can't recall any restaurant that selling it. If you know, I will be happy if you willing to share with me. Xuan Feng restaurant was opened on last year end. I was so excited when my colleague informed me they serve tonkotsu ramen. I get to know this ramen during my stay in Japan, the soup was cooked with pork bone (of course with other ingredients too) for long hours, hence you will get a very thick and sweet soup base. On last year, colleagues celebrated my birthday at Xuan Feng. I was satisfied with their tonkotsu ramen.

 

Bread Maker Butter Cake

Have you ever try to bake cake with bread maker? I still remember, one of the attractive point of this new bread maker is the "bake cake" function. I wonder how will the cake taste with this super lazy method. No baking tool (except weight machine) is needed. What you need to do is to dump everything into the machine and press few buttons. That's all!

 

6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 1) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第一天)

Day 1 With Thai Airway, we fly at 8:10am early morning from Penang, arrived and transit Bangkok at 8:50am. Fly from Bangkok at 10:40am, we had arrived Chiang Mai at 11:50am. The total flight journey including transit time just took us about 5 hours, compare with Air Asia, longer time spent for transiting is actually a big waste. This is also another reason why we chosen Thai Airway. 第一天 我们乘搭泰航,早上八点十分的班机从槟城飞往曼谷,抵达时间为八点五十分。再乘搭十点四十分的班机转机飞往清迈,抵达时间是十一点五十分。槟城与清迈时差是一个小时。以短短的五个小时我们就能顺利抵达清迈。这也是我们选择泰航的其中一个原因。   By the time we touched down at Chiang Mai, taxi driver that we reserved through hotel already waited us at Airport. We quickly grab a free phone sim card and local map, then proceed to our first hotel, Baannamping. On the way to hotel, taxi driver dropped us at local market to buy some fruits, cup noodles and junk food. 当我们抵达清迈机场,司机已经正在等待迎接我们。我们快速的取了当地免费电话卡及地图,就前往Baannamping住宿。途中,我们请求司机停放我们在当地巴刹,购买些水果。我们买了三包各20Baht的水果,准备回旅馆享用。再到隔壁的Tesco Lotus Express买些杯面及零食,就回到旅馆。 Fruits, junk foods and cup noodles After checked in to hotel, we had our lunch at hotel's restaurant. The meals are not as cheap as what we had expected. A plate of fried noodle Pad Thai is 150Baht, fried rice is 150Baht, apple juice is 85Baht. For taste wise, fried rice is the best, although it does not look attractive and portion is very small, but it really tastes superb. Pad Thai is their local food with sweet and salty taste. The noodle is actually thin version of our koay teow. We expect for fresh apple juice, but it was just a juice from box packet. 抵达旅馆放下包包后,我们就到他们的食堂用午餐。打开菜谱,发觉价钱并没有想象中便宜。以为一盘饭面只需50Baht左右,但并非如此。由于肚子已在打鼓,所以就点了一盘炒饭150Baht,一盘炒面Pad Thai 150Baht,及一杯苹果汁85Baht。 等了一片刻,食物终于送上,果汁有点让我失望,原以为是新鲜果汁,但其实是盒装倒出来的。炒面是当地的食物,带点咸及甜味,觉得很不错。但,最令人难以忘怀的是炒饭,看下去白白的并没什么特别,但味道超好,超香。只可惜分量太少了,想再来多一盘又觉得有点贵。就这样吃完了我们清迈的第一餐。 Apple juice Fried rice Pad thai After meal, we returned to our hotel room, started enjoy our free and easy life. After rest, we borrowed motor bike from hotel to Baan Tawai Village. This place sells many wood products and we like those wooden product so much. If you like wooden product, this is the right place for you! 吃饱后,我们回房休息,开始废了起来,这无忧无虑的感觉真好。废够后,我们向工作人员借了电单车,问了方向后,就到附近的Baan Tawai Village瞎逛。途中不知正确位置,就询问当地居民,他都很乐意的为我们指明方向。没多久,我们抵达目的地,当地所卖的木制物品,比我们想象的还多,只可惜很多都是带不回的,比如座椅橱柜等等,但也有些小样物品,就如灯,装饰品,礼品,服装等。我们购买了木制吊饰品,80Baht一个以作为纪念。   The shops at Baan Tawai closed at 5pm. After shopping, we went to night market near to our hotel. It is a small night market but there are plenty types of food. Foods are cheap and delicious too. Papaya salad 25Baht, fried port skin 20Baht, pork ball 10Baht for 10pcs, fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard 13Baht, egg tart15Baht, crispy hat biscuit 10Baht, sago dessert 5Baht. We returned to hotel to enjoy the foods we bought, we liked most of them such as the appetizing papaya salad. We faced some difficultly when purchased papaya salad, we do not understand their language and want to ask them the price for papaya salad, we asked the aunty "How Much?", she did not understand us at all, and pointed us what they sell. I looked at the menu and point at number "25", she knocked her head, from there we guess it is 25 baht. Although we faced communication problem, but their help and positive attitude had warm our heart. Unlike many other places, when you ask and nego for price, but in the end you decided not to buy, you will get scold by the shop owner, but we did not see this happen in Chiang Mai. 逛了没多久,差不多傍晚五点,店铺开始关闭了。我们前往当地的巴刹购买晚餐。由于第一次逛当地夜市,看见当地的食物,即便宜,看试又美味,所以很兴奋地,买了一样又一样。当中有木瓜沙拉25Baht,炸猪皮20Baht,猪肉丸10Baht10粒,油条和Pandan Custard 13Baht,蛋塔15Baht,香脆帽子饼10Baht,沙谷甜品5Baht,及水。看,都很便宜吧?买完后,我们回到酒店享用晚餐。木瓜沙拉超好吃,是由青木瓜,红番茄,青茄子等,再加上各种调味品所调出来的。酸酸甜甜非常开胃。还记得我们买沙拉时,问他们"How Much?",他们完全听不明白我们问什么,只在比手画脚告诉我们她在卖什么,后来是看到牌上的价钱表,随便指一指才能让她明白。虽然语言完全不通,但他们用心来明白我们的疑问,及路人的乐心帮忙,温软了我们的心。至于其他的小贩,也是非常的友善,态度非常好,当你提问问题,或者购买东西时,他们都是以微笑来对待你。不只如此,就算问了不买,他们也OkOk笑笑回应你,并不会给你脸色看,和香港人实在是天地之差呢。吃完晚餐,我们继续废,就这样过了清迈的第一天。 Market near Baan Namping Fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard Crispy hat biscuit Our dinner Milk tea

 

Life Organic Shop Hakka Lei Cha 客家擂茶 | Sungai Ara, Bayan Lepas, Penang

I had too much meat recently. Yes, I mean not only my food consumption, but also my body. My body fat is hard to reduce, everyday sitting in office after heavy lunch gained me a lot of weight. Recently, we went for vegetarian meals for lunch to reduce my guilty after consumed so much meat and oily foods. My colleague recommended this organic restaurant that serve vegetarian in Sg Ara, Life Organic. The aunty who served us said the shop is already opened for more than two years, but I did not realise it until my colleague brought us there.

Full sets of pump

This package includes one manual breast pump, one 160ml bottle, one 130ml bottle and 2 caps for milk storage purpose.

For the first time I used, I feel it is hard to control as I got around 1oz only, but it was after feeding my baby. Until now I had tried more than 5 times, it was ok to me. I also tried to pump in company whereby my baby not with me for around 8 hours, pump twice in company, but gave up on that as it took me more time with less milk, and can't work while pumping as I will need to hold it, not like electric pump, I use it with handsfree bra which allow me to control keyboard and mouse during pumping.

As for washing part, it's very easy as all the parts can be easily clean.

As conclusion, this manual pump will able to serve me during non working day when baby is with me, it's also good to boost up milk supply and to keep another bottle of milk in stock. Sometimes I will travel around during weekend, so it is also easier to pack this manual pump for travel, easier to wash as well.

It is a very good experience to try on both electric and manual pump, both have the pros and cons, I will choose which one to use base on different situation. Happy breast feeding!

Double Electric Breast Pump | Lacte Duet PDF Print E-mail

LDLogo38I wish to share something about my electric breast pump that has been used for almost a year. I bought this breast pump when my baby was about 4 months old, after used Medela Swing for about 2-3 months. Medela Swing is single pump, which took me about 1 hour to clear both sides, Imagine if you need 2 to 3 sessions per day during working hour, how much time you left to do your work? And it was second hand pump get from my sis in law, I am not sure it was due to old pump or what, the Medela Swing can't really empty my breast. Till one day when I was frustrated, I decided to invest on new pump. With some survey, I decided to get in this Lacte Duet Double Electric Breast Pump. It was RM399 the time I bought, I told myself if I able to feed baby with my breast milk until she is one year old, I will only need around RM50 per month (start count from 5 months old), and all of us knew breast milk is much safer and healthier compare to formula.

Autumnz milk storage bag to store my milk

With this new pump, I managed to empty my breast, hence I get more milk. This pump comes with double motor where user can adjust both sides with different power level. With this feature, in case of one motor break down , you can still use another side. It is also more quiet compare with M.Swing and some other top brand model. Another thing that I like about this pump is you can use it with power bank, it is especially helpful where you can pump at anywhere even though without power supply.

As the original bottles that came with the set have wider opening, the pump also came with converter where you can pump directly into your Bumblebee/Autumnz or whatever bottles that has smaller opening. It is convenient as you do not need to wash extra bottle after pump, just pump inside your storage bottles.

The only thing that I am not happy with this pump is it contains many parts and you will need more time in washing the parts. I have this in my mind: "I will get in Freemie to use with this pump for my next baby", as I feel Freemie is easier to wash, and yes, this pump can use with Freemie. Besides this I would say it is a good pump.

To make my pumping more comfortable, I use it with handsfree bra, it is much more convenient and can reduce shoulder pain as you no need to bend your head down by always looking at your bottles. With handsfree bra, you can work while pumping as your hands will be free at the time you pump.

LDLogo44

My day will be full of joy and satisfaction when I get this amount in one pumping session!

I wish all mothers happy pumping and enjoy your breast feeeding journey!

Logo31Merry Christmas 2015! We had four days holiday on this year Christmas, a super happy holiday mood to welcome this year Christmas.

We celebrated our Christmas at The View Restaurant, with their semi-buffet menu that can opt for either Turkey or Lamb for the main course. We get one Lamb and the other was rib eye steak that not in the menu.

Before the soup was served, we started with the buffet. Not much choices but some of them taste really good. They have salad, fingers food, fruits, and more. Desserts were one of my main focus, their tiramisu is one of the best that I had ever ate.
