Japanese Rice Ball Onigiri おにぎり

Onigiri お握り or 御握り, is a Japanese rice ball made with white rice and shaped into traingular or oval shapes, it can be wrapped in seaweed (nori 海苔). An onigiri is normally filled with pickled ume (umeboshi 梅干), salted salmon, katsuobushi, kombu, tarako, or any other salty or sour ingredient as a natural preservative. You can easily get it from convenient stores in Japan. I made an onigiri in Japan, with a very simple ingredients and procedures to follow. Those ingredients can easily get in Malaysia too.

 

Steamed Caramel Banana Cake Recipe

I have overcome another fear on handling caramel last weekend. This steamed caramel banana cake gave me a good practice on cooking caramel as well as steaming a cake. I always afraid the caramel will stick on my pan when it turn brown, but thank God that I have successfully cook it nicely and no burning sugar stick on my pan. Since it is a steamed cake, it's texture is similar to huat kuih/fatt koh发糕. If make it into cupcake, it is just like huat kuih发糕. When my mom ate this, she said it is malai ko马来糕. With her comment, she gave me inspiration to bake malai ko next time.

 

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.

Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

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!
