17 Songs Every 90s Kid Should Know

Raise your hands, if you were born in the 90’s and grew up listening to songs from the millenniums! As a 90’s kid, I take pride in the quality of music that was popular during our generation. We had such talented artist who made amazing music. Let me take you down the memory lane with 17 songs you almost forgot. No worries, you can thank me later. 1. Backstreet Boys – As Long as You Love Me Before Justin Bieber and One direction even made it to this planet, we had Backstreet Boys! Backstreet Boys were one of the first few boy bands that made it big during the 2000’s. 2. N’sync – Bye Bye Bye Just like the Backstreet Boys, N’Sync was a big craze during this period of time.

Recipe: Claypot Chicken Rice (using Conventional Rice Cooker)

Claypot Chicken Rice (Chinese: 砂煲鸡饭, 瓦煲鸡饭 or 煲仔鸡饭) is a dish that is both convenient and tasty. Traditionally, Claypot Chicken Rice is cooked over a charcoal stove, giving the dish a distinctive flavour. It is a one-pot meal and is usually cooked in the southern regions of China, Malaysia and Singapore. Due to the time-consuming method of preparation and slow-cooking in a clay pot, customers typically have to wait for 15-30 minutes before the dish is ready. Since not everyone owns a clay pot, I will be using a conventional rice cooker. This is a simpler and faster method that barely compromises the taste.   For 3 to 4 pax Equipment: Conventional Rice Cooker Wok/Frying Pan   Ingredients: 2 cups of uncooked rice (rinsed in cold water 2-3 times and drained) 500g of chicken (cut into small pieces) 4 dried Chinese mushrooms (soaked and cut into thin strips – may be replaced with fresh shitake mushrooms but it won’t be as fragrant) Some salted Mackerel fish (sliced into tiny pieces) 3 Chinese sausages (sliced into …

October Favourites 2014

First of all, I can’t believe how quickly October ended. October has been such a roller coaster ride for me. It has been difficult trying to juggle assignments, work, life, and also staying healthy all at once (life of an Uni student). BUT with the help of a few things that I consider my ‘happy pills’, I have managed to retain my sanity. Secondly, WELCOME NOVEMBER! In this monthly favourite, I have chosen (in no particular order) 5 of my top favourite obsessions in the month of October.  1) Savvy Ultra Matte Lip Colour  I went into Priceline a while ago to casually look around and kill time while I was on my work break. I told myself that I won’t buy anything but, I came across this lip product which was on sale and immediately, had the strongest urge to try it. I usually gravitate towards brighter colours when it comes to lip products but, somehow this nude-brown lip product caught my attention. To be honest, I have dry lips and since this product …

Recipe: Curry Chicken with Potatoes

It took me a long while to complete this post because my mind was overwhelmed with what to write and how to share what I know. After a long time of thinking, I decided to start with something simple. A dish that is most acceptable and a comfort food for many Asians: Curry Chicken with Potatoes. I first learnt how to cook this dish from my husband. And yes, he was my sifu (Cantonese Chinese for accomplished teacher).   For 5 to 6 pax Equipment: Frying Pan/Pot Ingredients: 800g of chicken (chopped into pieces) 600g of potatoes (peel off the skin, wash and cut into 2 or 3 cubes and keep them dry) 2 medium sized onion (diced) 1 inches of old ginger (diced) 4 cloves of garlic (diced) 10g chilli powder (add it into the curry powder, you may add more if you have a spicier taste) 50g curry powder for meat (add 5 tablespoons of water to make it into a smooth paste. *You may need to add 1 or 2 more tablespoons …
