Chicken rice

It will have to be one of my favourites.

The rice is cooked with chicken stock, some pieces of ginger and its flavour is just smooth and rich on the buds. I love it. I especially like to eat it with a piece of chicken liver. Much like foie gras except that it's not in pate form and it's definitely budget.

Chicken rice. Eat with some sweetish soy dressing, some lightly limed chilli mix and go BURPPPP!!

It was the school holidays and we were in Penang last weekend for some pool, sun and beach time with the kids. The hotel gave a kid's pack to each of my girls which consist of a colouring book with stickers and a box of colour pencils. Sweet!

So one of the pages had some lines and my girl doodled to complete the picture. I think they are all very cute, just like a 5-year-old doodle. 

On the left, the tortoise has been done as an example. My girl then drew Mr Potato, a snake and Uranus (wow!). And then there was a cute lizard which looked more like a dinasour, some hill, some grass and a digger which my girl referred to as an excavator. That was my favourite. Too cute because with her already small drawing, she could draw a girl inside the tiny excavator! *much love*

My Turn

Teacher's Day. Ahh! My turn has come.

remember my mum used to prepare ONE gift for my class teacher during my schooling years but I can't recall having gifted my kindergarten teachers. These days, they start young. And not to just the class teacher. Gratefully, I didn't feel obliged to spend a lot or to give the whole school unlike some parents.

I kept it simple. I had some large packs of unsalted nuts at home. So I decided to mix 'em walnuts, cashews, peanuts and raisins together. Quickly whipped up a few packets in ziplock bags and had them packed in fancy plastics. Wala!

My turn has certainly come to do this on an annual basis from now on and it is a loooong way to go still. *sweats*
