Cooking Video: Chicken Breast Stew with Tofu and Bean Sprouts

I've honestly been cooking so much at home that I have exhausted all avenues for inspiration. Books, apps, websites, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube videos...everything.

On Monday, I threw something together which turned out perfectly fine...which meant nobody complained.

Today, I, once again, threw something together based on what was in the fridge, pantry, and what I bought yesterday from the grocery store and came up with a one-pot-solution dinner.

Maybe my kids are just angels, so, no complaints still!

I am currently experimenting with some video editing software and apps for work as well as some graphics stuff, so, I thought I might as well give filming the cooking thing a go.

This is what I figured out - you need bloody good lighting, a good camera and a sidekick. It's hard because I can't cook and film at the same time. It boggles me how those YouTube people manages to do it all the time! Do these camera people get paid or something?

Anyway, here's the short video.

Sorry for the bad lighting and angle. I don't think I'll try any harder to find the right angle to film these sort of cooking videos. Right in front of the stove is a wall. How on earth am I supposed to perch anything on a wall? 😂😂😂

I am not up for that kind of challenge.

It's good enough for me that we got to eat dinner and my phone is in tact (and not in the wok together with the stew).


And oh yeah, I said I wasn't gonna post anything about wielding a scissor to my head? I changed my mind.

Much love to all of you cooking yourselves out of your minds,

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS before you hit thirty

In terms of internet savviness, I think I am quite ‘there’ lah….a bit lah. Not a lot but a bit ‘there’, up there with some of some internet marketers out there but let’s face it, I’m not going to be swimming in cash yet unless I learn to do something extraordinary. REALLLLLYYYYY EXTRAORDINARY. But come to think of it, some of the biggest gazillionaires who made a whole lot of mullah from the Internet did not start out thinking it would make them millionaires. In fact, some of them did it for fun. Humor me, fun = lots of money. Let’s have lots of fun, then, instead of working our butts off for mediocre earnings, am I right? :-)That leaves me thinking…what can I do that is fun and can make me truckloads of money everyday? I want to hear the cash register going ka-ching, ka-ching every minute of the day and my sole responsibility is to have complete, unbashed fun. I took this list off somewhere, can’t remember where (trust me, I have all these things, ready to be blogged about, and I do…

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun.

I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose.

This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-)

For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, remember th…
