Simple sponge cake

>> Jun 13, 2012


Light, soft and fine texture, that’s what I like about Sponge cake. It’s the very first cake I tried baking when I got my oven.

Looking back…it’s not an easy cake to begin the journey into the world baking as compared to the traditional butter cake. Strangely enough, I was not deterred by the difficulty. I kept trying to improve and kept reading up on the tips.

And, so… my lovely supportive family had to endure the 3 sponge-cake-sessions a week! Feeling guilty, I added different flavours to create varieties!

Quick Tiramisu

>> May 15, 2012


You would have read and probably tried many versions of Tiramisu, the Italian dessert...the Classic, the Traditional, the Authentic...if you like coffee, chilled creamy dessert with a hint liquer...you'll like Tiramisu. 


(For those who may know about Tiramisu, you can check it out in the Wikipedia about its origin, history and the actual preparation).


I actually hesitated posting Tiramisu (not another one!), though I've made it a number of times over the years. This is my easy and quick version, without raw-eggs and can be prepared ahead and kept chilled in the fridge, till ready to serve.

Claypot Bak-ku-teh (BKT)

>> Apr 7, 2012


I made this some time back and got the thumbs up from the little one. I think it is very nice, not too over-powering with herbs and just the right flavour with pork ribs.

School Term-Break

>> Mar 23, 2012


I’ve neglected my blogs and I am now trying to ease back in slowly and gathering some long-lost momentum!

Too much has happened and I thank my family and friends for their prayers, support and help.

Christmas 2011 has been spent in the hospital with the little guy hospitalised a few days during the Christmas holidays for a very nasty bug. He had very high fever, averaging 39.5 - 40°C, vomiting and severe headache with initial diagnosis of suspected meningitis or dengue fever. There’re IV drip, a tube into his thin wrist, suppositories, needles…and talk of possibility of CT Scan or MRI.


Thank God, after some blood tests, meningitis and dengue were ruled out and doctors could only say it was very nasty viral infection. Anyway, we are glad it’s over, a fortnight of worries and sleepless nights could be put aside.

when Max was much better and could sit up, he immediately asked for his Lego blocks
