It’s steamed bun or ‘pau’ stuffed with dry chicken curry and potato … The Pau Ayam.

I have been wanting to make these for a few weeks already, only to find today the day to make them.

Why I put off making them?

It’s a little messy having to play with flour, yeast and kneading the dough. And kneading dough is something I do only when I am in the right mood. Buying one would cost around RM1.50 – RM2.00, very easy but making them for the family yields greater satisfaction.

Tonight, the menu is really a jumbled up western and Malaysian mix.

The dishes …

Chicken Qiuche, Pulut Kuning and Bubur Lambuk

After 2 days of Pasar Ramadhan food while in Sitiawan, I thought I’d cook dinner for tonight. After a short discussion with the children, the menu for tonight was … Seafood chowder, Potato salad and Spagetti Bolognaise.

The kids help to prepare the food. Here are the photos of what we had for iftar/dinner tonight.

Some photos captured to remember the event by. All the staff managed to clear their calendar and come for the company berbuka puasa.

I am posting this so that my kids can read …

“Kids, McDonalds is not good for you. Once or twice a year treats would be okay but that’s about it”

McDonald’s: not a place you should eat if you are trying to be healthy. But if you must eat there, there are definitely some better choices on the menu than others.

Lifehacker put together a great guide showing just what foods aren’t so bad and what should be avoided at all costs. The good news is that good ol’ Chicken McNuggets aren’t so bad, providing 280 calories in a 6 piece box. And a hamburger has only 250 calories if you can stand eating it without cheese.

The bad news? A large Triple Thick Chocolate Shake has 1160 calories, 27 grams of fat, 168 grams of sugar and 510mg of sodium, which is just fucking insane. Seriously, if you want to cut a decade or two off your life, drink one of these every day. And a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese ain’t much better.

Hit Lifehacker for the full list and all the details, but here’s the one rule I always remember when I’m considering a McDonald’s menu: don’t eat at McDonald’s. [Lifehacker]

Sometimes, when getting my Cappucino at a coffee bar, the cappucino they served me was so beautiful that I feel guilty messing out the art created with the milk foam and coffee.

I thought I’d give this cappucino art thing a try at home. And, the result of my effort …

That was supposed to be a four leaf clover.
