My favorite French Toast

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 19, 2010

Sigh… No more fever. No more runny nose too. Just a little bit cough.  :)Yesterday, you only took some porridge with soya sauce. Today, you enjoy fish and rice just now. It’s good to see you enjoying your meal again. Do you miss French Toast?


That’s what mummy took last Thursday while you were eating breakfast before school. So cute! Finger licking good aye? Do you want some more?French toast seems to be your favorite now. But, mummy have to be extra careful in adding fresh milk to the French toast. Even though it’s not eczema, but too much fresh milk will still cause rashes on your body. But so far so good.  😉

I guess mummy is going to make some French toast for you again before I leave to Spain. Also, mummy already spare mushroom soup and fresh fish in the fridge. Lastly, I am going to get you some watercrest on early Sunday before I depart.

Love you, baby!


I eat snail, Mama

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 3, 2010

Last Sunday……

Grandma:”What did you eat for lunch?”

Liz:” I eat snail, Mama.”


Yes! I mean snail. Liz:” How to say delicious in Mandarin, mummy?”

Thanks Daddy! I am more willing to try new food now, especially seafood. I like seafood. Prawn has become my favorite. Now, I am taking fish again. I like Japanese rice with raw fish. And, it’s my first time trying Escargot. Mmm! “Hao Chi”! (means Delicious) 😉


Yum Yum Roti Tissue

Posted by Everyday Healy on February 21, 2010

Mmm………Yum! Yum! It’s so good. I love “Roti Canai”. But, this is the first time I get to taste “Roti Tissue” on the 2nd day of CNY. It’s in my favorite list now. Thanks “Gong Gong”. I love you too. Hehe……

Yeah… Enjoy it, baby! But, I think this is just as acidic as the fries. Thus, better don’t take too much even though it can never cause hormonal acne on little girl like you. I know you will understand. There is one thing that mummy really proud of you. You can always control your urge for the food that are harmful to your health. Excellent! 😉


Pink Jelly, my favorite!

Posted by Everyday Healy on January 23, 2010

Before I get to enjoy mummy’s first grill chicken, I felt a little bit hungry. So, I took out something from the fridge. Taa… Daa…

Mmm……….. So good! Yet, I am enjoying together with the TV cartoons. fantastic! Yeah… I loves jelly. And, I like it to be pink. Pink jelly is my favorite. 😉

And, I want chicken. Mummy cooks chicken today, you know. And, I help mummy to cook too. Mmm……… It’s so nice! 😛


Here comes the Fire Engine

Posted by Everyday Healy on January 17, 2010

Yesterday is another wonderful Saturday. As I got to eat my favorite McD Sundae Cone. And, I am taking my lunch at my favorite restaurant too — Japanese Food Restaurant. I love Japanese rice all the time. But, promotional products for kids like this is hard to resist. 😉

Here comes the fire engine! But… what happened to the fries? It’s too soft and mash potatoes. I don’t like it! I don’t like the Gyoza either. Luckily there is still fried chicken which taste exactly like McD’s nuggets. Alright! I will finish up the 2 tiny piece of  “nuggets”. 😛

By the way, mummy ordered the Mogu Mogu orange juice as I requested too. Orange juice is my favorite. But, not this orange juice. I don’t like it too. As I realized the orange coloring actually stained around my mouth. That’s ugly! :(

What an experience. Next time better just take your favorite Unagi Sushi, ok baby? Ha!


Bento #3

Posted by Everyday Healy on January 15, 2010

How is it? You called it Sushi. And, that’s your bird and fish sushi. The rice seems so delicious to you. of course, it’s the fragrance steam pandan chicken rice. But still, you took out every of the vegetables in it without missed. Also, you just leave the boiled egg aside. May be because the boiled egg doesn’t look like a fish like mummy promised.

I guess most probably because the bento doesn’t seems appealing. Not really nice aye? Don’t worry, mummy will work harder on it. First of all I need a nice Bento box. best if it’s Hello Kitty. As you are crazy over Hello Kitty ever since I bought the Hello Kitty school bag for you. 😉

By the way, these are the tools I am using for this Bento.

Both the rice shapers were great! But definitely not the egg stamper. Can’t get the design at all.  May be I should try using it to shape sweet potatoes or rice. :)


I am going to make Bento

Posted by Everyday Healy on January 14, 2010

I know you just can’t wait to prepare Bento together with mummy. As we have got these wonderful tools now. You were so excited and keep bagging to make the Bento immediately once mummy brought them home from the 100 yen shop since yesterday. Oh! I know why. As it’s more like toys for you, right? 😛

Ok. I promise we will make something out of it by today. May be sandwiches? Hopefully you like the food to, not just the preparation. Will you take more vegetables if mummy manage to make the rice and vegetables look so cute and lovely?

Well, you seems meant to be those sporty type that would even enjoy wearing breeches and go for horse riding. Thus, mummy is kind of excited to see how my baby learn to become a little chef. May be you will cook or make better sandwiches than mummy. As I am a newbie in cooking too. Hahahahaha……


Enjoy your meal

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 11, 2009

Today you actually wake up yourself on 8am. Gosh! I guess it never happened  for months. Mummy is so glad that I don’t have to hear something like:”I don’t want mummy. Go away! Go away!” and “I am tired. I want to sleep.” while I try to wake you up every morning. 😛

And, mummy is kind of happy to see you sitting on the dinner table under the ceiling fan, enjoying the black sauce fried meat with rice so much.

That’s yesterday’s dinner. Yeah… You used to love this meat or black sauce chicken and chicken feet. (Yeah… My little princess likes chicken feet.) But, you stop taking all these stuffs since last month. Now, the black meat seems yummy to you again. Just take as much as you like! More protein intake will make you grow taller.

May be mummy shouldn’t worry too much. As you still have good appetite. Look like you just want to change your taste a bit once in while when you get bored. Today, you got watercress soup. Your favorite too. And, the only vegetable that you are taking now. Enjoy your meal.  :)


I don’t want fish anymore

Posted by Everyday Healy on November 10, 2009

Mummy thought you like Salmon as you almost finish the whole piece last week. And, it’s quite a big pieces. So, mummy bought more today. And, spend my time minced and grilled it in the oven. Then, you eat it happily for the first and second bite. Mummy was kind of satisfied. But, as mummy was about to feed you the third small piece, you said:”I don’t want fish anymore!”  :(

I wondered why you hate fish so much at this age? No vegetables in any of your meal too. But these 2 types of food used to be your favorite about 6months before. So, what you want for today’s dinner? Rice and fried omelette again? Or “mee” soup? Or mushroom with rice?

You don’t even really like pork or chicken too. It’s always “mee” or rice, with omelette or mushroom. Then, once in a while you will ask for fried prawn. That’s it! Mummy is thinking hard on what am I supposed to do to make you eat more variety of food? :roll:


Chicken, Prawns and Rice Please…

Posted by Everyday Healy on April 23, 2009

Well, this is something she always left behind recently. Obviously, this little girl don’t like to eat steam fish anymore. It’s ok. Her food preference changes from time to time.

Anyway, it’s still mee and rice for lunch and dinner. But, the dishes is no longer fish ball and steam fish. Sometimes, she prefers fried fish. Most of the time she will orders vege and rice or mee and hot dogs. However, yesterday she suddenly make the order of prawns and mee. Then, she asked for chicken, prawns and rice for today’s lunch.

Huh? Seems like she wants variety now. Good! You are welcome to make any orders you like, my lady! Hahaha……

And, mummy is so proud that she always knows her limit in terms of food intake. She will just stop when she feels enough, even there is still a lot of her favorite potato chips left. Frankly, even mummy can’t have such fantastic control. Mummy can only make it with the help of appetite suppressant. LOL! So lousy! Hahahaha……


Bento #2

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 30, 2008

Today, mummy did not prepare cuttie meal for little Elizabeth. But, look at what she ate for dinner last night…

Nice? Still rice! But, rice in tiny moon, flower, apple, mango and chili shapes. And, a “butterfly” by the side which I made up from fried Broccoli and steam tomato. I know! It looks more like flower! LOL!

Anyway, I thought she likes butterfly. Still, she split out the broccoli, never take the tomato, but finished up the fish very quickly. I don’t even have time to tell her that the pieces of fish meat is a “Dolphin”. Er… I supposed it looks like Dolphin, doesn’t it? Hahahaha……

End up, I have to add in a lot more fish and rice, but take out the vegetables. Also, I don’t expect her to give me any response, if I put the Hydroxycut hardcore right in front of her. As she has still not come to the age of getting excited with the weight lose products. Only when she become a lady! 😛

But, it’s so sad that she doesn’t even show any encouraging response when I bring this “Bento” to her. That’s something I don’t expect. What a good work I have did! :(


Practise on preparing nice Bento

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 26, 2008

Many blogger mummies are preparing very nice Bento for their kids. These kiddie meals has bears, flowers, octopus in it. I love them all! Elizabeth might not need Bento now, as she is not going to school. But, mummy can still prepare lovely cartoon meals at home for this little princess.

So, we were out in Gurney Plaza last night searching for some Bento gadgets. Thanks to daddy for being so thoughtful! Daddy actually take us together to Gurney while he is having work appointments there. Mummy appreciates it so much!

Thus, I promised myself I am going to create something nice for Elizabeth and to show daddy. TaaDaa…

Hello Kitty Rice! With pieces of fried egg as eyes and nose. And, the bitter gout as flower by the ear. Not bad, aye? 😛

But, as it was ready, my little princess already fall a sleep for her afternoon nap. :(

At first, it was a whole fried egg like this…

But, no eyes, no nose and no flower cause no seaweed or anything else with sharper color. So, I tried on rice. Looks like the Hello Kitty non stick frying pan (only RM12.90) can be quite useful!

Now, I realized that I need much more gadget to make a nice Bento. Never mind. I can slowly collect them one by one. Now, I will have to gather more pizza, cake and cookie recipes. Suddenly, I am so dedicated to get a bigger oven and start baking and cooking too!

I feel like I am a wonderful mother by preparing nice food for my little princess! 😉


More meat please

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 18, 2008

Mummy considered myself quite particular about what goes into little Elizabeth’s tiny mouth. Mummy believes we are what we eat. Eat right and healthy food is very much like buying family health insurance. It’s an advanced planning for future life protection. Thus, I prefer her to take more vegetables and fruits.

“Oh! Fruits? Yummy! But, vegetables? No, please!”

That’s Elizabeth. She stopped taking vegetables, especially the green leaf vegetables long ago. Instead, she is taking chicken and chopped pork. :(

This is Steamed Chopped meat with soya source. Her new favorite dish to go with white rice. And, she is taking lots of herbal chicken soup too. That’s good! At least, it’s nutritious and quite easy to prepare. 😛


Brain Food

Posted by Everyday Healy on August 1, 2008

I read from the educational book that I bought weeks ago that berries are one of the most important food for our kids brain development. When I said berries, I mean strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and so on. If you are Chinese, may be you are used to Mulberries — “Kei Chi”. That’s berry too! 😛

And, Spinach is also fantastic brain food. Other brain food including banana, egg, apple, and walnut. Anyway, I am going to buy blue berries for little Elizabeth to try as bluberries contains high amount of AHTHOCYANINS — a very powerful antioxidants.


Wan Tan Mee, please

Posted by Everyday Healy on June 13, 2008

Elizabeth don’t really like ice cream. Mummy wondered why? I thought ice cream should be the kids favorite? Anyway,that’s fine. After all, ice cream is nothing nutritious. On the other hand, it’s fattening and the chemicals in it are actually harmful to our health.

Instead of ice cream, she ate lots of “Wan Tan Mee”. Even her 2 other cousins around her age loves “Wan Tan Mee” too. So, this is the real kids favorite, I guess! hahaha……

This is one of the most famous “Wan Tan Mee” in Penang. Yum! Yum! Elizabeth just won’t stop asking for it, not until she saw the plate was empty, whenever mummy and daddy brought her there.

Oh! This is even more fattening, my dear! Looks like somehow you are going to need Phentermine in the future. hahaha…


Now I like it, later I don’t

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 29, 2008

I just feed Elizabeth pizza again around 9 pm. I thought I just mentioned that little Elizabeth started to like pizza now. However, She never says Mmm just now. She even spitted it out after the first 2 bites. How could this happened? Both the pizzas don’t really taste that different! 😯

Mummy is curious. Could it be the difference of environment? Will baby changes their preference of food as environment changes? I mean may be Elizabeth loves that “PizzaRUs”. As she enjoyed the environment, she has better appetite and showed better appreciation on the food there.

Mummy assumed it’s possible as my baby showed different attitudes towards different places. Her mood changes as the environment changes. For example, she was so happy whenever she visited Rasa Sayang Resort. In opposition, she will show her grumpy face immediately after she entered the wet market. hahaha……

By the way, she really had an enjoyable time at “PizzaRUs”. I think that’s the real reason why she praised the pizza! 😛


Delicious Pizza

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 28, 2008

Elizabeth loves pizza. She was eating plain rice and plain white bread most of time since young. She can never get bored of both these plain stuffs. However, she seems started to enjoyed pizza with rich taste now! She says, Mmm… 😛

May be pizza is still bread. Thus, she loves it! Just as she likes donuts too. Anyway, this is something new. She used to reject things with rich taste when she was younger. I think soon she will loves cakes too.

Looks like it’s time for mummy to learn baking. At least mummy can prepare some home made cookies, breads, muffins, pizzas and cakes for little Elizabeth next time, especially for her to bring them to school.

Mummy can even open up a bakery once mummy is good at baking. Not a bad idea. Mummy should be serious in it. Mummy even create a name card specially for this business by using one of the online business card maker software to further convinced myself to treat this idea seriously. hahaha…

Just for fun actually. After all, its a free trial. But, It’s absolutely fun! I like this card maker as it even includes beautiful logo design. Fix choices were provided but with wide varieties. By just a few clicks, a nice, appropriate and complete name card will appear immediately on the screen. Amazing! It’s a total hustle free experience. 😛


Coco Crunch Breakfast

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 27, 2008

What does your baby eat for breakfast? Usually, babies love cereals. Elizabeth stop taking powder form baby cereals long ago. She is taking coco crunch now. My little princess loves chocolate taste! 😛

I bought her the tiny Milo chocolate cereal balls. And, my maid will add in some milk and feed this little baby half bowl of it in the morning as breakfast. Not every morning though. Sometimes, it’s biscuits or breads. 😛

In fact, Elizabeth has started to feed herself. Sometimes, these tiny cereal balls just slipped off form the spoon. She missed them! But, she will keep scooping. Quite a persistent girl! 😛

Roar… I got you all in my mouth now! hahaha……

No coco cereals this time? Never mind. I will take the milk first! 😛

Slowly, as these are the last 2 left. 😉

Looks like little Elizabeth also need a baby chair and baby table, daddy. So that she can have breakfast properly on the table.


Delicious Popcorn

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 23, 2008

Two days ago on the 21th, that was my first time eating popcorn. Mmm… Yum! Yum! 😛

It seems there is a lot of popcorns in the bucket. More and more in my mouth, please! 😛

Wait… My leg is a bit numb. Let’s stretch!

Ops… me and my big leg! Now, they are all on the cushion! :(

Never mind. I can pick up one by one and finished them all. 😛

Like daddy like daughter. Both popcorn fans. In fact, daddy is the one who missed popcorn at first. End up everyone in the house is chewing the popcorn in their mouth, including Bill, granny, mummy and great granny. Ha! We are… Popcorn family! hehe…


Agetashi Tofu or Ramen

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 18, 2008

Mummy likes Japanese food. In fact, the whole family like Japanese food. Thus, as mummy, granny, Uncle Bill, and Elizabeth went to the bus station to pick up granny’s sister who is from Ipoh, we decided to drop by Sake Sushi Restaurant. We missed the “Ramen”.

Agetashi Tofu

Baby Elizabeth used to take “Agetashi Tofu” (Fried Tofu) while having Japanese meal. Surprisingly, she rejected the tofu immediately after she swallowed the first spoon of “Teriyaki Ramen”. Obviously, Elizabeth becomes another fans of the Sake Sushi Restaurant’s “Ramen”.

I guess the Tofu is nice. But, the “Ramen” is simply nicer. Is mummy right, my dear? 😛


Not Cold Banana

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 8, 2008

Mummy’s 17 months old loves banana. She can eat more than 1 banana at a time. That’s fine as long as she won’t have hard stools. Surprisingly, she refused to eat the banana that just took out from the fridge! I thought you like ice, baby? 😯 hahaha……

Anyway, according to the medical encyclopedia, banana is one of the recommended diet for children recovering from gastrointestinal problems, particularly diarrhea. Basically, Banana, Rice cereal, Applesauce, Toast are called the BRAT diet that commonly recommended by physicians and nurses for binding food and make the stool harder.

Besides, the high potassium in bananas is good for replacing the lost potassium in our body after vomiting or diarrhea.


Not Fried Rice

Posted by Everyday Healy on May 7, 2008

Elizabeth can be very picky sometimes. Mummy don’t want her to eat only biscuits, fish balls and plain rice everyday. Luckily, she will accept some of the new food that mummy introduced to her.

As she likes “Bojari rice” so much, mummy actually made her fried rice. The fried rice includes egg, carrot, garlic, parsley, and soya source. It’s fragrance! It’s so yummy to mummy. Unfortunately, she don’t really like it. :(

Too bad that mummy just don’t know how to make “Bojari Rice”. Frankly, toddler seems have very different taste from adults. Anyway, there is nothing wrong. As even among adults, we have our own preference and favoritism too. 😛

Somehow, it seems mummy need more ideas to create some new recipes for naughty Elizabeth. :(


Toodler Food Cook Book

Posted by Everyday Healy on April 8, 2008

Elizabeth seems only eating rice and fish ball a lot these days. Mummy is a bit worried about her various nutritional need. Thus, mummy just bought another book which is fully on baby and toddler food recipes.

Basically, it includes first foods for weaning babies, food allergies tips, toddler breakfasts, lunches, dinners, picnic food, party food, snacks and nibbles. The recipes look simple but innovative. There are cakes, cookies, shepherd’s pies, pasta, chicken, pizza, fruit dips and so on. All looks so delicious! 😛

Hopefully, some of the recipes could turned out to be Elizabeth’s favorite.  😛


Be careful with candy

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 26, 2008

Mummy has mentioned about Elizabeth taking Ribena pastilles a few times here. However, mummy istrying my best to avoid it actually. As mummy find Ribena pastilles is like rubber when we chew it in our mouth. Mummy is afraid that indigestible.

May be mummy should check on her “Pooh Pooh” next time when she took Ribena pastilles. As we can clearly see anything which is indigestible appear in the baby’s “Pooh Pooh” as a whole.

On the other hand, mummy really don’t like the coating of sugar on each and every piece of the Ribena pastilles. That is quite unhealthy. In fact, research in the US has shown that eating too much of candy or anything which is sweet can cause our baby to be super active.


More Bojari Rice Please

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 25, 2008

Elizabeth is the adventurous type in terms of food tasting. She is very much willing to try most of the food that mummy, daddy or anyone in the family offers her. However, it’s easy to know which is her favorite.

She will always ask for more if that’s something she like. And if she walks away or don’t even bothered to ask for a second feed, that’s shows it is not her cup of tea.

All the time mummy thought Elizabeth likes plain rice. There is no doubt she likes rice. However, mummy just found out that she even favors more on the “Bojari Rice“. This is rice cooked with all kinds of spices.

Once I realized she loves it, I specially ordered only “Bojari Rice” for her. And, mummy was shock but happy to see her finished 3/4 of it. I guess from now on, mummy is keen on trying to cook this type of “scented” rice for my little princess.

As mummy believed rice that is full of spices are always more nutritious compared with plain white rice. 😛
