Goma Dango ごまだんご | Japan Kinkakuji

Is anyone like the Cha Dango that I shared on previous post? Now, I would like to introduced another type of dango. As I mentioned before, there are varities of dangos that can be found in Japan, one is the Cha Dango which is made with green tea. The second type of dango that I am going to share now is black and white version of dango. What is the black and white ball ball stick shown in the picture? Well, the white balls are the dangos which are plain dangos while the blacky is kuro goma (black sesame). It doesn's look tempting to me at all, but since there was a free tasting sample, why should I miss the chance ?

First of all, I would like to apologize to MnY blog's owner (Camus and myself) for publishing a poor quality photos. As mentioned in "About Us", the purpose of creating MnYfoodtalk.com is to share anything that is related to food. We will not only share "good" food but also "bad" food. Either "bad in taste", "bad in service", "bad in price" or anything else. Today, we are going to share our year 2010 Christmas dinner celebration experience here.

 

Pandan Chiffon Cake Recipe

This is a long keep recipe that I baked few months ago. Baked it together with other chiffon cakes during my chiffon cake study. I get this recipe from Kitchen Tigress, I found her blog from youtube while I was searching for video on how to make chiffon cake.       Recipe 100g pandan leaves, use only soft and moist young leaves 70g freshly squeezed coconut milk, undiluted 180g egg whites ½tsp cream of tartar 50g sugar 60g egg yolks 50g sugar 60g corn oil ¼tsp salt 100g cake flour (sifted with baking powder) 1tsp baking powder Method 1. Blend pandan leaves with coconut milk and 1 tbsp water. Strain pandan leave and get green liquid. Set aside green liquid, which should weigh 95 g. 2. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light. 3. Add in corn oil, mix well. 4. Add in green pandan coconut liquid, mix well. 5. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt, stir until well combined. 6. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar. 7. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is white in colour now) . 8. Slowly add in sugar, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed. 9. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined, you will get a light mixture. 10. Change hand whisk to spatula, fold in 1/2 of remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now). 11. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined. I did in in this way: spatula cut mixture into center all the way to bottom bowl, scrap from bottom along bowl side toward you. Rotate bowl few degree and repeat this action until well combined. (your mixture should be very light and volumic now). 12. Pour batter into 18cm chiffon cake pan, level the surface. Bang mixing bowl against worktop 2-3 times to remove air bubbles. Run a chopstick round side of tin to remove more air bubbles. Level and smooth top. Bake in preheated oven at 160C at lowest rack with fan forced for 40-45 minutes.   13. Remove cake pan and invert pan immediately, cool completely before remove cake from pan. Result The cake should be evenly green but I saw some white spot, it was due to unbalance mix during step 11, meringue not mix properly with egg yolk batter. Compare with other recipe which I used 5 eggs, this recipe used only 4 eggs. It is shorter compare with 5 eggs chiffon cake on right (picture below). I prefer 5 eggs recipe. Left: 4 eggs recipe; Right: 5 eggs recipe

 

The Ridge - Teja By The Sea | Batu Kawan

The Ridge - Teja By The Sea located at Batu Kawan, is a very nice place to enjoy food. We had our dinner there on last weekend with family. By the time we arrived there was already 7.30pm, too bad we missed the sunset view. We ordered tomyam ayam with 2 bowl of rice, 2 lamb chops, 1 fish and chip and 1 roasted chicken. For drink, we have one big jar of fresh orange juice. Mee udang is recommended by waitress but it was closed after 7pm. One big claypot of tomyam ayam, RM12. I like the sourness and little sweetness of the tomyam taste, not too spicy. I found the serving is quite proffesional, take note of how they served the white rice. This claypot tomyam is enough for 4-5 person according to waitress.

Full sets of pump

This package includes one manual breast pump, one 160ml bottle, one 130ml bottle and 2 caps for milk storage purpose.

For the first time I used, I feel it is hard to control as I got around 1oz only, but it was after feeding my baby. Until now I had tried more than 5 times, it was ok to me. I also tried to pump in company whereby my baby not with me for around 8 hours, pump twice in company, but gave up on that as it took me more time with less milk, and can't work while pumping as I will need to hold it, not like electric pump, I use it with handsfree bra which allow me to control keyboard and mouse during pumping.

As for washing part, it's very easy as all the parts can be easily clean.

As conclusion, this manual pump will able to serve me during non working day when baby is with me, it's also good to boost up milk supply and to keep another bottle of milk in stock. Sometimes I will travel around during weekend, so it is also easier to pack this manual pump for travel, easier to wash as well.

It is a very good experience to try on both electric and manual pump, both have the pros and cons, I will choose which one to use base on different situation. Happy breast feeding!

Double Electric Breast Pump | Lacte Duet PDF Print E-mail

LDLogo38I wish to share something about my electric breast pump that has been used for almost a year. I bought this breast pump when my baby was about 4 months old, after used Medela Swing for about 2-3 months. Medela Swing is single pump, which took me about 1 hour to clear both sides, Imagine if you need 2 to 3 sessions per day during working hour, how much time you left to do your work? And it was second hand pump get from my sis in law, I am not sure it was due to old pump or what, the Medela Swing can't really empty my breast. Till one day when I was frustrated, I decided to invest on new pump. With some survey, I decided to get in this Lacte Duet Double Electric Breast Pump. It was RM399 the time I bought, I told myself if I able to feed baby with my breast milk until she is one year old, I will only need around RM50 per month (start count from 5 months old), and all of us knew breast milk is much safer and healthier compare to formula.

Autumnz milk storage bag to store my milk

With this new pump, I managed to empty my breast, hence I get more milk. This pump comes with double motor where user can adjust both sides with different power level. With this feature, in case of one motor break down , you can still use another side. It is also more quiet compare with M.Swing and some other top brand model. Another thing that I like about this pump is you can use it with power bank, it is especially helpful where you can pump at anywhere even though without power supply.

As the original bottles that came with the set have wider opening, the pump also came with converter where you can pump directly into your Bumblebee/Autumnz or whatever bottles that has smaller opening. It is convenient as you do not need to wash extra bottle after pump, just pump inside your storage bottles.

The only thing that I am not happy with this pump is it contains many parts and you will need more time in washing the parts. I have this in my mind: "I will get in Freemie to use with this pump for my next baby", as I feel Freemie is easier to wash, and yes, this pump can use with Freemie. Besides this I would say it is a good pump.

To make my pumping more comfortable, I use it with handsfree bra, it is much more convenient and can reduce shoulder pain as you no need to bend your head down by always looking at your bottles. With handsfree bra, you can work while pumping as your hands will be free at the time you pump.

My day will be full of joy and satisfaction when I get this amount in one pumping session!

I wish all mothers happy pumping and enjoy your breast feeeding journey!

Logo31Merry Christmas 2015! We had four days holiday on this year Christmas, a super happy holiday mood to welcome this year Christmas.

We celebrated our Christmas at The View Restaurant, with their semi-buffet menu that can opt for either Turkey or Lamb for the main course. We get one Lamb and the other was rib eye steak that not in the menu.

Before the soup was served, we started with the buffet. Not much choices but some of them taste really good. They have salad, fingers food, fruits, and more. Desserts were one of my main focus, their tiramisu is one of the best that I had ever ate.
