I always wanted a Bruno Hotplate but not sure what stopping me to get one till recently i enter a giveaway contest by Ksisters & Bruno and to my surprise out of so many contestant i was chosen to be the winner! Thanks God!! i get the color i wanted too! Also got myself “Nabe Attachement” for steamboat and oden.

It’s a perfect cooking tools when it come to breakfast or hosting party at home. Magically bond everyone around the dinning table, cooking together can be fun!

First party we hosted was Oden Party and so happen we wanted to asked Ping and her bf to come over for dinner so it’s an opening ceremony for our Bruno. I cooked the dashi stock for 4 hrs with radish then throw other ingredients in just before we start the dinner.

Ping brought over the seaweed flakes and mentaiko spread so i prepared onsen egg (kinda failed) together with toasted sesame seed for topping. It is a must to be Japanese rice luckily i resisted Ming to brought it.

Then is dessert time! Ping made Pancake ball with takoyaki attachment, we got really nervous at the beginning not sure how it will turn out. We have so much fun experimenting how to make it better with heat and portion control. That’s what i mean by cooking together can be fun, the husband and boyfriend involved too.

Pancake mix from muji mix it with milk and egg then we put nutella spread and strawberry cubes in between as filling.

Eat it with Haagen dazs strawberry ice-cream, it was so good! the pancake ball was flurry and not too sweet and go perfectly with the ice-cream! oh yums…

There’s so many other recipes i want to try with Bruno Hot Plate, maybe it’s time to host next party! Thanks Bruno Hot Plate Singapore!

Random rainy day

Stuck in the mall nearby our house after meeting my friend in town. It’s pouring out there and I don’t want to wake this soundly sleep baby up so I’m here rocking the stroller, looking at the phone and trying to blog.

We’re finally heading for our annual family trip next week! Like finally! So happen I always scheduled our trip around April for 3 years from Hong Kong, taiwan then this year. As I find is the best season to travel, weather is good chilly not too hot or cold and doesn’t need to buy/pack winter or thick clothing. However I always have this habit to shop for new clothes for a trip wearing something new make me look even forward for the trip, who’s with me?

Ming gave me this 😭 face looking at the pile of clothes I brought for everyone, yes everyone! Know what? at this time my washing machine decide to strike, keep showing error sign! Time for new one? But why this timing? I need to wash all new clothes, i have sensitive skin so I have this habit of wash it before wear, good for Chloe also.

This round is just gonna be chill and relax kinda trip only 1 or 2 place to visit daily. Since just 3 of us so we gonna take our own sweet trip to enjoy our days, bit of sightseeing, daily nap is a must and homecook if I’m not lazy. Self drive would be easy for us to travel around really miss time when we have car lo! Ming always toying the idea of getting a car in Singapore but to me it will only benefit us on weekend maybe just 1.5 days throughout the week, the rest of the day we just plain paying for parking fees. As it’s still more convenient for Ming to take the train to work, chloe school is so near that walk will be faster then drive 😂. And car is so expensive here will it worth for that minimal usage? Maybe not. So we shall enjoy our self driving experience next week.

This post is just about random thoughts. Chloe is gonna wake up anytime. Bye..

Layback Saturday

Can’t remember when was the last time I went cafe hopping, our usual weekend is either stay at home trying to get some rest or out for outdoor activities for Chloe or shopping in town.

I miss this kinda slow and relax outing with friends, no target to hit, nothing to buy just walk around quiet areas take photos and chit chat

And also ootd photo! You’ve been missed! Thanks my cute photographer ping with her bf’s Leica camera, finally I can have some decent photo of myself without a toddler in tow

Ping looking good in all white outfit! We are seeing some progress of being a minimalist (our goal this year). We still send each other stuff we tempted to buy but try convince ourselves that we don’t really need most of the things, still rooms to improve a lot of self control need to be practice.

We went to Our Second Home @ Holland V for tea, it’s a very quiet cafe/boutique that mainly showcasing Our Second Nature clothing, so their cake and drinks are paid through tipping or purchasing their garments.

Enjoy the ambient so much! We chatted so long till the shop closed.

With ping whom I got to know thru blog 9 years ago and how our friendship grow throughout the years in another country 💕 Thanks for the lovely Saturday
