Homemade Yakitori 焼き鳥 | Japanese Skewered Chicken

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.  

 

6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 4) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第四天)

Day4 Today we will check out from Baan Namping after 3 nights stay here. Today breakfast came with 2 choices, one American breakfast and one soup rice. We get one each. Soup porridge was good but compare with American breakfast, we still preferred American breakfast as the bacon tasted really good. We spent our morning relaxing in hotel and proceed to Chiang Mai city with taxi (Song Thaew) arranged by hotel's owner. 第四天 住了三晚Baan Namping,今天是时候退房了。今天的早餐有美式及饭汤两种,我们各点了一个。虽说饭汤不错吃,但比较起来,还是喜欢美式早餐, 因为培根实在是太好吃了。吃完早餐,我们回房待了大半天,才乘坐酒店安排好的双条出城去。 Soup rice Taxi driver dropped us in front of our hotel in city, Baan Hanibah. This hotel located in walking distance to Sunday market, a super big and famous night market in Chiang Mai city on every Sunday. After checked in to Baan Hanibah, we booked a package to elephant show on next day, then we went to Sunday market. 双条直接把我们停在将要入住的酒店外,Baan Hanibah是我们在古城内住的酒店。这酒店和周日市场的距离不远,步行就可,挺方便的。我们登记好一切,放好行李后,让柜台服务员替我们定购隔天的骑大象配套,就往周日市场方向去。 Song theaw Chiang Mai wall Day tour package Kaosoi restaurant, Wat Phra Sing, Wat Phan Tao, Wat Chedi Luang and Sunday market (red lines) location map While we were hunting for our lunch, we found one local shop selling local food. We got ourselves a bowl of Chiang Mai famous Kao Soi and tomyam seafood, together with a coconut drink. 我们走着找午餐吃,由于才三点左右,周日市场还没开,我们就步入一家卖当地食物的餐厅。看了看菜谱,点了当地著名的Kao Soi以及一碗东炎,再来一粒椰水。 Kao soi is a fried noodle in curry and coconut soup, with thick coconut taste and slightly sweet. Compare with Penang curry noodle, the coconut flavour is much stronger. Add some chilies paste if you like spicy. Kao Soi是碗类式咖喱椰浆的汤面,面条是油炸过的,香浓带点甜味的椰浆汤淋在炸面上,非常好吃。比起我们的咖喱面,那浓椰浆来的更香滑可口,要是喜欢辣,可加入辣椒。 Kao soi Tomyam is added with coconut too, delicious. It is different compare with our local tomyam, which is more towards sour and spicy. 至于东炎呢,也是加入椰浆的,非常好吃,比起我们的酸辣东炎,真的不同。 Tomyam 由于两碗都是椰浆汤的,吃多了开始有点腻,再加上我们的椰水,全都是椰。要是缺乏胆固醇的你,这样的一餐肯定对你有帮助。这就是我们丰富的椰浆午餐啦。   Wat Pra Singh is one of the most famous temples in Chiang Mai. We walked around temper without enter to temper hall as need to pay for entrance fee. There are some stalls selling cloth, CD, foods at side of the temple too. I bought myself a pant from one of the stall here. 吃饱后,我们前往Wat Pra Singh,当地著名寺庙。由于入庙是需交付入门票的,所以我们只在外面看看而已。寺庙旁边也有一些小摊口,我在这儿买了一件短裤。 Wat Pra Singh We started our shopping at Sunday market after visited to Wat Pra Singh. It was really big market as mentioned by people who had been there before. Many of the things are repeated at few different stalls. 从Wat Pra Singh出来后,夜市摊口已陆陆续续开档了,我们就开始逛了起来。逛着逛着,实在是很兴奋,夜市实在是太大了,有种走不完的感觉。只是Camus的脚肿痛,走起路来很辛苦,所以走了一半路程,我们回酒店休息,又继续逛另外一半的夜市。虽说摊口很多,但很多也卖一样的东西,要是你在这挡买不成,可以在其他摊口找到。 Sunday market The same cuttle fish uncle from Saturday market Yakisoba Local dessert Fried worm / cacing Cute pao Delicious bihun with pork skin Sunday market We get some pants from here too, but mainly we bought foods from here. Wat Pan Tao and Wat Chedi Luang are located along Sunday market too, we visited these temples on Sunday night. 我们多半买吃的,食物便宜又好吃,吃得不亦乐乎。其中Wat Pan Tao和 Wat Chedi Luang是坐落在夜市的街旁,所以我们也在这时走去看看。 Wat Chedi Luang Wat Pan Tao  

 

Double Electric Breast Pump | Lacte Duet

I 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. My breast pump bag with two compartments - FAME Breastpump Knapsack/Backpack (L) 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!

 

3 Layer Electric Mini Rice Cooker

I bought a mini rice cooker lately, although I have slow cooker, rice cooker and some other types of cookers, I still decided to buy this mini rice cooker, reason is to cook baby porridge in faster and easier way. I had tried to use slow cooker to cook porridge, it took about 3 hours to get ready. Product description: 3 layer cooker come with timer, can cook rice, porridge and baby porridge. The timer function is very useful as we can set it to start cook at preferable time. I first try to cook lunch for Camus and myself before start to use it cook for baby. This is the first meal I cooked with the new cooker, ready marinate beef bought from AEON, steam pumpkin and rice. Simple meal enough for two. Second try with baby porridge, less than 1 hour to get it done, easy to clean too. You can manually set the time to cook longer or shorter (default setting at 55 minutes for baby porridge). Avocado with sweet potato baby porridge I did re-heat baby porridge for dinner too, by changing the setting to cook for 12 minutes. In summary, I really love this mini rice cooker with it's timer, easy to clean, easy to carry and fast to cook functions.

DurianChIt's durian season again, I will jump into durian chiffon cake recipe first before I continue to post for other chiffon cakes recipe. I used my recipe keeper (with step by step procedure) and modify to make this durian chiffon cake.

Ingredients
5 egg yolks (about 85g)
10g sugar
50g water + 120g durian meat (blend until smooth)
70g corn oil
120g cake flour

5 egg whites (about 200g)
70g sugar
1/2tsp cream of tartar

Method
1. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light.
2. Add in corn oil, mix well.
3. Add in water and durian mixture, mix well.
4. Sift in flour, stir until well combined.
5. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar.
6. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is white in colour now).
7. Slowly add in sugar, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed.
8. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined, you will get a lighter mixture.
9. 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).
10. 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).
11. Pour batter into chiffon pan. Using satay stick / chopstick, run around baking pan side and then draw curly pattern all the way in the middle and bang pan on counter top to remove big bubbles. Level the surface and bake in preheated oven at 160C with fan forced for 45 minutes or until cooked.
12. When cooked, remove from oven and invert chiffon pan immediately to prevent shrinkage. The pan must remain inverted until fully cool.
13. To remove chiffon cake from pan, carefully run the pan outer, inner and bottom side with thin spatula or knife. Invert pan to remove cake on big serving plate.
14. Enjoy!

Compare with original recipe keeper, it will be more difficult to fold egg white into egg yolk mixture due to very thick egg yolk mixture after adding in durian.

Hi Nami-san, ya, not all people can accept durian's smell, maybe you can try with baked stuff or durian ice cream?

Durian! My husband likes it, but I'm still reluctant to try because of the smell. I love the idea of chiffon cake with durian flavor. It looks delicious!
