Ampang Homeland Yong Tau Foo 釀豆腐 | Ampang, Kuala Lumpur

Yong Tau Foo (stuffed bean curd) is a Hakka dish famous in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Tau Foo is stuffed with fish (or meat or pork) paste, hence the name "Yong Tau Foo". Since then, variety of vegetables or fried fritters is stuffed with the fish paste, but all are categories as "Yong Tau Foo". Two weeks ago, we travelled to KL for food hunting and shopping. Among the food we hunted in KL, Yong Tau Foo suits our taste the most! This was the first meal we hunted for when we first arrived in KL.  

 

James Foo Western Food | Tanjong Tokong Penang

James Foo western food is located in Tanjung Tokong Penang. I have heard of it's popularity since years ago, but have not find a chance to try it. Last two weeks, we have decided to go there for dinner. Without disappointment, we are quite satisfied with the food, on the portion and taste. We ordered steak without mentioned on how well we want the beef to be cooked. When the steak was served, we were surprised to see the steak was medium well cooked. We can still see blood came out from the beef, it was yummy.

The package includes bamboo riding, elephant show, visit to long neck village, lunch, ride on oxford and elephant, visit to orchid and butterfly farm. 今天我们参与大象营一日游,一个人是1400Baht,有司机到酒店接我们。这一日游行程包括乘坐竹筒船,看大象表演,参观长颈村,免费午餐,乘坐牛车,骑大象,参观花园及蝴蝶公园。 Bamboo riding Every activity was very attractive to us except for visit to orchid and butterfly farm. We truly respect the elephants' trainers as their elephants are all very well trained. You will experience how elephant drawing with their long nose. 除了参观花园及蝴蝶公园,每项都是很特别的。大象表演简直是让人大开眼界,真不能不佩服工作人员们平日的训练,看上去大象们即聪明又很能听指令。 Elephant show Long neck village is one of the famous spot in Chiang Mai. 长颈村也是我期待的一个景点,觉得这种族很特别,拍上照片肯定有特色,所以就非去不可。 Long neck village After visit to long neck village, we had our lunch. It was buffet style lunch with fried chicken, rice, drink, fruit, etc. 参观完长颈村后,我们就吃午餐。午餐是自由式的,有不同的简单肉菜,白饭,水果,茶水等等。   After lunch, we ride on oxford and elephant. It was a very scary experience, I was really afraid that the oxford and elephant will do something to me, or I will fall down from elephant. Scary... 吃饱后我们乘坐牛车和骑大象。前者已让我觉得心慌慌,担心牛车会翻车。后者更加让我不放心,想象自己坐在高处,慢慢的在"空中"荡漾,真的很恐怖,又担心大象突然发癫,把我们甩下。还记得有一幕,当大象正从陆地下水的时候,大象前脚突然下去有深度的河,镇了一大下,吓得半条命,喊了好大声,一直期盼快点完成这路程。想想,真的很恐怖,要是有畏高的人,肯定比我还害怕。 Elephant ride Oxford ride Lady selling drinks in water Bathing for elephant We returned to hotel and end our one day tour after visited to orchid and butterfly farm. 再来就参观花园及蝴蝶公园,之后就会酒店去。   We have our dinner nearby Chiang Mai town, famous pork leg rice. 我们在酒店附近的小贩享用凤飞飞猪脚饭。 Pork leg rice(凤飞飞猪脚饭)location map Famous pork leg rice Semi-transparent hard boil egg Sunset colour egg york After rest in hotel, we went to Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market with Song Thaew. The journey cost 20Baht per person. 休息了片刻,我们乘搭双条到Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market。不会太近的路程,双条费用只需20Baht一个人。 Kalare night bazaar and food center location map Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market The things sell in Kalare night bazaar are more expensive compare to Saturday and Sunday market. We had our dinner at food court before back to hotel. 我们觉得Kalare night bazaar的价钱比夜市场的还要贵,吃的用的也比较贵,所以就走马看花而已。走了好久,都不见好吃的,直到要回前,来到美食中心,所以就在这儿吃饱后才回酒店。 Food court at Kalare night bazaar & Anusarn Market Purchase voucher before get your food Food court opposite this building Tuk tuk, a "mini" taxi in Chiang Mai, with one driver and up to 2 passengers at the back. Like combination of motorbike and trishaw, is my favorite transport in Chiang Mai. I fall in love with this vehicle after my first ride on it. It costs 60Baht for two of us from night bazaar back to our hotel in Chiang Mai city. Best to take it at night with your love one, windy windy feel... "feng" left "feng" right...romantic...I have a simple wish, you know? I just wish I can own a tuk tuk, drive here and there, or sometime hire somebody to fetch me and dear Camus "feng" here "feng" there. Too bad, the distance from night bazaar to our hotel is too short, I don't really fully enjoy and we had already arrived at the destination. Now, can someone tell me how much does one tuk tuk cost in Chiang Mai? 我们选择tuk tuk车回酒店,60Baht一辆,挺便宜的。我一坐就喜欢上了这tuktuk车,机车感觉轻轻的在路上奔驰,夜里凉风吹来,好舒服,司机走的路线和双条不同,都是走小巷,所以很快就抵达酒店。tuk tuk车,我真是爱死你了。 Tuk tuk

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.
