Homemade steam cake in 15 minutes

Published at 23:57 in , , , , , ,

It's time for some homemade delicacies for my little princess again! 

I love the simple to prepare recipes without fuss. Nowadays the little girl seems to run around faster than me, so it's quite tiring for me to keep her out of kitchen...

Tonight I made this super easy steam cake for her, can be served as breakfast tomorrow morning. Done in15 minutes.

Ingredients: 8 tbs (scrape off with knife, else 4 tbs full) self-raising flour, 4 tbs milk/soy milk, 1 tbs caster sugar and 1 tbs Milo powder



Method:
1. Measure the flour, milk and sugar in a bowl then mix well.
2. Add in Milo powder afterwards and stir in circle motion to create marble-like pattern.
3. Pour the mixed ingredients into a medium size bowl then steam for 15 minutes.
4. Check if the cake is done by poking a chopstick into it. If it's not sticky then it's done.



My Milo steam cake!



The texture is medium soft and a bit moist. But the moisture will slowly vaporize after leave it for some time. So it will not become too hard and crusty after exposed in air.



Instead of serving as breakfast she has eaten off quarter of it! Hmm...slightly heavy supper eh?

Homemade pizza in 5 minutes

Published at 03:25 in , , , , , ,

Hungry at home and need a quick meal? Well the kids are running around and need your attention, and you don't have enough time to cook some hot meals while you're bored with eating sandwich. 

Hmm...what about making an instant pizza? Think of the flavorful hot melted cheese... Ooo...

All you need are these ingredients in your kitchen:
Bread, grated cheese, sandwich spread, sausage, spices and mixed herbs. 
And of course you will need your microwave oven or stove.



Method:
1. Apply a layer of sandwich spread over your bread. Then top with a generous amount of cheese - Cheddar/Mozarella/Parmesan. I normally use grated cheese plus Mozarella.

2. Slice the sausage and add on to the cheese. Too up with more cheese to cover the surface. You may add the toppings per own preference - capsicum, mushroom, etc.. Or even replace the sausage with ham, bacon, tuna chunks, sardine, etc..
*Sausage is not a healthy option especially for toddlers, suggest to totally exclude it or replace with other ingredients.

3. Sprinkle with paprika/chilli powder and mixed herbs if you like. 

4. Microwave for 3 minutes. Healthier option for toddlers will be by steaming for 5 minutes or more, until toppings are cooked and cheese melted.
*Depends on the amount of pizza you make. I have also tried just 1 slice and it only needed 30-40 seconds in the microwave.


5. Ready to serve! All done around 5 minutes.



Ooo come and feel the cheese explosion~~ 



For toddlers you may go plain. It's just as good isn't it? Well you may as well exclude the chilli powder. These were for ourselves as supper.




Easy isn't it? No more fuss for a quick but delicious light meal! :)

Well, you may continue to have some 'shaking' fun time with your kids after this making the 5 minutes DIY ice-cream (link: http://www.princesscheryl.com/2014/08/homemade-ice-cream-without-any-machine.html)

Homemade ice-cream without any machine

Published at 22:22 in , , , , , ,

What is the fastest way to get an ice-cream? DIY at home! In just 5 minutes. 

Yes, just 5 minutes! You didn't hear me wrong.

All the while I kept searching for no-churn recipe and still it took me quite some preparation time of at least 30 minutes. And I was tired with all the washing afterwards...

And then, I came across an article days ago, and this method totally blown off my mind. *claps!!*

Only 5 minutes to get a few servings of ice-cream! So here is the recipe, I've successfully made it tonight and we've just finished it.

Ingredients and tools:
Ice cubes, full cream milk/fresh milk, a plastic container with cover, a breast milk storage bag/zip lock bag, 6 teaspoon of salt, some sugar for sweetening



Yes that's all you need!


Method:
1. Fill up the breast milk storage bag or zip lock bag with 200+ml of milk. Add some sugar and slightly stir it. Zip it tight to avoid spillage.


2. Dip the whole bag into the container which has been filled up with ice cubes and the salt. Cover it with more ice cubes.


3. Cover up the container and start shaking up-down-left-right in all directions. Just enjoy shaking it~

4. Shake continuously for 5-10 minutes. The salt will help to further lower the temperature and creating a flash freezing environment. It's amazing! You get to freeze your milk into ice-blended form within 5 minutes.


5. After 5 minutes. Ready to serve!! Have it plain or add toppings.



See how much my little cheeky pie enjoyed it~


The texture is similar to ice-blended smoothie but more solid. Have it a try today!

But make sure you consume it within 5 minutes after served, it melts pretty fast too. :)

How to choose the right perfume Malaysia for you?

Published at 17:14 in

Author: Aini Shah

Selecting the right perfume scent could be quite tricky as you would want the perfect smell to shoe your personality. Besides that, you will want to smell amazing in front of others and receive positive compliments on your perfume selection. The first thing to do before purchasing the perfume which will suit you is by knowing the basics. The basics is the knowledge of the types of scent categories a perfume falls under such as floral, green, oceanic and wood. Women tend to have a hard time sniffing various types of fragrance as people will remember you for it. It is a personal choice which reflects your personality especially on the first encounter.


Floral scent perfumes reveal a flower smell such as rose, lily, jasmine or lavender for women who prefer a light scented fragrance. This type of scent is suitable for the ladies who want to portray a feminine as well as romantic personality. The soft scent will definitely expose an elegant side of you in front of others. Meanwhile, the green scented perfumes are more of an organic smell consisting of fresh grass smell, lemon grass or fruits. The natural organic smells are perfect for the ladies who love simplicity and smelling fresh all day long. While the oceanic scent for women are a bit more masculine and with hints of spices and citrus smells in it.


After you have discovered the right choice of scent which matches with your personality, test the scent by spraying it onto your wrist or better yet the fragrance strips provided on the counter. Leave it on for a while and smell the final scent as it absorbs into your skin. If you have brought a friend along, ask his or her honest opinion before actually purchasing the product. However, if you do not have the time to do your perfume shopping, Zalora is an online store which offers various local and international perfume brands for their customers. Read the description and experiment a new smell for you by shopping online for perfume Malaysia.

Yea I AM ONE!! Princess Abigail's 1st birthday

Published at 18:00 in , ,


I would just come to realize that this was suppose to be posted 5 months ago! Today my princess Abigail is exactly 17 months old. Wow... I mean WOW... Has she grown so fast???!!! Or have I grown so much older... It was like yesterday when she was still a small baby.

Her full moon


Now the term is TODDLER~ Very soon we're gonna have to pay a lot more for her flight tickets... No more traveling as an infant but as a kid.



Having the first birthday celebration for the first child is definitely a project for the mom. I bet a lot of you have gone through sleepless nights getting the preparation done. I was totally a walking zombie in Dec'14 when getting ready for Abigail's party... a full time working mom + breastfeeding mom + my mom at her final stage of cancer (that was really sad). Days were spent on rushing to work, rushing to hospital, and rushing for the party stuffs. And when I think back, I realize that I was crazy enough to even DIY most of the items!

I came out with the theme of "Safari Princess", where the party was filled with cute pastel color baby animals to accompany my girl the princess. She is one active girl who would not really fit into the normal princess theme, thus I added in the "safari" element.



These were all hand made DIY decorations. Thanks to my aunt, the best aunt on earth I would say, for helping me out with the arts and crafts. Stage deco done by the superb papa and Abigail's uncles on the spot!



And this was the awesome birthday cake made by JooSing from Cupcakes4you!! Highly recommended for those who stay in Penang. Yes it was my idea on the cake design and she made it into an actual cake.



And tadaa~ This is my handmade birthday hat for the princess! Who likes it give me a clap!~



Some snapshots of the birthday girl with friends and family. Thank you all for coming. :)














These photos below are the most precious photos of all time... Mommy we miss you.... We're really glad that you were still able to witness our little girl turning 1 year old.









And the presents... We spent an hour unwrapping them the next day at home.. Phew~



Love you to the max!!!

The mini me :)

World Vision: Open up your world ~ 你看见我的天空吗?

Published at 18:30 in ,

My sponsor kit has arrived!!

This is probably one of the great decisions I made this year - Sponsor A Child.

What does RM65/month mean to most of us today? Nothing... not even enough to pay for a 4pax family meal am I right? Or maybe a dress or your eye shadow palette? Hmm... 

As a parent, we surely understand the feeling of wanting the best for our children. We do not need a luxury lifestyle, but at least we make sure our children can live healthily without suffering from hunger, and also get appropriate education. 

Somehow poverty made this a struggle for many mothers and fathers. They barely make enough to get by each day. Imagine living in a family that suffers from hunger each day... Children who are suppose to go to school have to beg or work to support their families. I've seen it a lot through my travels... It saddened me so much.

Thus I have come to the decision to lend a helping hand through World Vision last week, at least I've deducted 1 out of the few thousands more children waiting to be sponsored. Latest update as of 26/05/2014 is 4249 children in the waiting list.

Why I chose Cambodia out of the SEA country list?

It was back in year 2009 when I visited Siem Reap. There were children everywhere earning a living for their families. Cambodia is so heavily contaminated with landmines as the aftermath Civil War in Cambodia. A high percentage of the population in Cambodia has been struck down by this mines and causing death and disabilities.

The National Level One Survey in Cambodia conducted in 2002 found that 20% (2776 out of 13908) of all villages in Cambodia are still contaminated by minefields and/or cluster bomb areas with reported adverse socio-economic impacts on the community. These adverse impacts included restrictions on access to agricultural landpasture land, forests, and water resources, with 102,778, 105,707, 172,878 and 84,588 families being affected respectively. A 2004 Cambodia Socio Economic Survey (CSES) noted that households headed by someone with one or more reported disabilities have significantly less wealth than other households. Furthermore, it has been estimated that households headed by a person disabled by war or landmines live in poverty at levels almost three times higher than if the disability was due to other causes.            ....source: Wikipedia 

The photos speak... This is only Siem Reap (so-called town), what about the rural areas?? I cannot imagine...






I am very thankful to be brought up in a loving family. So since my mom has left us to heaven (in March) I am going to help her spread her love to the children in need. She will be pleased I am sure.


If you have extra money to spend each week for an extra cup of coffee, why not give it to the family in need? Your action will change one's life.
