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!

Chloe goes to school

It has been 4 months since Chloe enrolled in kindy, this year in N1 class for 3 hours (yeah to extra me time) i walked her to school everyday initial plan was Ming send her to school since class start about the same time he goes to work, but this daddy not very confident to handle her alone #superspoiled then he got busy with his latest project at work that require him to go to work earlier. Now i’m all alone to prep her and send/pick up Chloe..every time he get to escape so unfair! no choice who asked me want to be sahm right? luckily the little girl seldom whine or protest when we wake her up for school in the morning

So far she loves school i assume, never cried since the beginning but when you asked her if she want/like to go to school she sure shake head // do you like teachers? no! do you like your classmate?no! but every morning she willingly walk in by herself and wave goodbye to me with a subtle smile, so i guess she enjoy going to kindy.

Ever since Chloe started school, i need to crack my head to prepare snacks to bring to school, she’s picky eater la, Teachers always tell me she doesn’t like this or that i prepared for her.. so now i only give her fruits and cakes. As long as food she likes she doesn’t mind i repeat the same menu, but i feel so bad to keep preparing the same things for her, that’s so many snack box ideas out there but there’s also so many things this little girl refuse to eat or tried.

Chloe seldom sick before entered school but now her keep getting running nose and cough so often that i need to stock up medicine at home..hope her immune got better very soon.

oh and next week is first term school holiday. that’s the first holiday she’e gonna spend at home with me last 2 holidays we went back to KL, actually been toying the ideas to bring her back but after considering her behavior (poor appetite and sleep)  from previous trip back i think we better stay in SG. I need to plan some home activities and bring her out for some outdoor fun.

Here’s some activities in SG i found online for march holiday

actually we are this close to cart out the ticket! but Chloe is now on peppa pig withdrawal, i’ve stop letting her watching this cartoons (not that it’s a bad cartoon for kids i must admit she learn a lot words from this show but we want to try stop giving her screen time) for a month so maybe is not a good idea to watch this play
