Happy Mooncake Festival from MnYfoodtalk

It has been a while since our last update in MnYfoodtalk, it is mainly due to our webpage was corrupted recently (thanks to the previous lousy web hosting company). All the posts were gone and we had to re-build and re-publish all the posts as we do not have a backup for our posts. During the downtime of our webpage, the poor service from the previous web hosting company was really dissapointed us and make us mad. Hence we had decided to change to new hosting company as they provide a better service to us. The two hosting companies did make a big different in providing services to their customers. For instance, the way they reply our requests did make a big different, you can't imagine how a service company can reply an email to their customers in a rude way and blame that the fault is from customers themselves. In fact we knew that was the improper server configuration that brought us all the nightmare and here we have no intention to blame any party, but the rude and irresponsible way of servicing customer from the previous hosting company had changed our mind in continuing to host under their company. So far, we are pretty happy with current web hosting company. One lesson learnt here, BACKUP YOUR BLOG OFTENLY!

 

Curry Chicken Recipe | With Instant Curry Chicken Paste

This is the first time I cooked curry chicken in my life, I cooked it with instant "A1 curry chicken paste". The first experience with successful and delicious curry chicken, I am very confident to cook for second time in future. With this instant curry chicken paste, you do not need to get headache with quantity of chilli, onion, garlic, and curry powder. With simple instruction shown behind the packing, what you need are 1kg of chicken (or beef or lamb), 200ml of water and 120ml of coconut milk. I cooked with 8 chicken wings and 3 potatos. Besides, I added 5 chopped shallots (small onion) for better taste. Firstly, pour in the instant curry paste and stir for few minutes, add in chicken wings, follow by potatos. Stir evenly for another few minutes, pour in water and let them boil. When the chickens are well cooked and potatos are soft, add in coconut milk. Stir evenly and you can have a pot of very delicious curry chicken in front of you.

 

Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe | Lebuh Macallum, Penang

Camus and I took a day off from our busy life to enjoy our own sweet time. He brought me to this cafe located at Lebuh Macallum. He told me we can have our breakfast with coffee and bread kind of breakfast which I like. We arrived there on weekday morning around 10:30am and the cafe was very empty, only one customer during the time we were there. Plenty of parking space outside the cafe. Cakes at RM13 per piece! After enter the cafe, a young man passed us a menu, we seated and read through the menu. I was shocked when look at the menu and do not know what to order at the first glance, I focus on the price and feel hard to choose my meal as they are very expensive to me. In the end, we get one Macallum breakfast and Smoked Salmon Bagel, one cafe latte and one cappucino, there gone our RM55! Talk about the cafe, I found this cafe is quite nice as the fragrance really attracted me when I first enter the cafe. I like the fragrance and it is quite different with other cafe as I can smell something soury. I am not sure what is this fragrance until I get my latte and cappucino. The sweet aroma of coffee taking over my senses, they are creamy, smooth coffee I longed for. Cappucino and Latte Maccallum breasfast came with sunny side up, avocado, chicken frankfurter, chicken bacon, grilled capsicum, baked potatoes, bread and salad. Portion is quite big. I like the chicken frankfurter which the size like german sausage. Smoked salmon bagel came with smoked salmon with wasabi cream cheese, rocket leaves and pinch of capers. I do not understand most of the terms mentioned in the menu except for "smoked salmon". Now as I am writing, I compare the menu and photo I took, I cannot find "wasabi cream cheese" from my photo, why? Mana dia pi? Oh, the one spread between the bagel? It's wasabi cream cheese? Not butter? To me, this smoked salmon has nothing special but I do like rocket leaves. And now I know what is capers, it is the small tiny things appeared on top of the roll smoked salmon. Ooppsss, we do not finish that even though only served with 3 biji, what a waste? I thought they were just a decoration to the smoked salmon... Overall, Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe is a good place to enjoy coffee but sincerely, it was a very expensive experience to me.

Japan Instant Cup Rice

It is not healthy to eat instant noodle, I know. It does not contain nutrision and not good for digestion too. I try to avoid eating it but once a while, I think no problem. One night, when I shop for my dinner at nearby convenient store, I can't find any bento available. At that time, I found instant cup noodle rice which was quite special. I bought one and bring back apartment for my dinner on that night. It is rather convenient and fast to cook. Just add water to the cup rice and cook it in microwave oven. You can consume it after 2 minutes. Inside the cup rice, it has dried egg, dried shrimp, shallot and dried meat. It also came with a pack of sauce oil for you to mix with the rice after cook. So, if you do not want to eat instant noodle, you can try instant rice. Next post, I would like to share about making your own cup noodle. You can choose what ingredients to put in your cup noodle and what soup base you like. Stay tune!

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!
