From the recent many food safety cases, we understand that many manufacturers are adding many kind of unhealthy substances to make our foods taste better, more QQ (elastic texture), springy, fluffy, or look white and nice! I started to ask myself do I need to add all these substances or many kind of white powder to make my homemade foods taste nicer? If I like them, then better I buy from them rather do it myself.
So this time, I try to remove away few ingredients from the previous bao dough recipe, just basic ingredients flour, oil, water and yeast, to my surprised the bao still turn out good ! No doubt it look yellowish not white, but we feel these bao were so homey and original !
My family gave thumbs up to this chicken and onion bao, my son keep saying the chicken filling is yummy and my daughter asked me to open a shop selling bao, ^_^..

At first, I was planning to put this post title as "sunrise on bukit Panorama Sg.Lembing" . But we were not lucky enough to view sunrise, because the cloud was too thick, so no choice have to change this post title ^_^. Also give us another excuses to visit this place again. Now I realized that to view sunrise is tougher than to view sunset (we have nice sunset at Tanah Lot Bali). We have to woke up early morning (about 4.30am), climbed up to the hill top took about 45mins, and no guarantee you can have nice sunrise view.
Anyway, the beautiful 云海 (sea of cloud ) and hills scenery up at the hill is worth a visit..
We went here and staying a night during the school holidays recently.

I have seen gnocchi posted in other bloggers last time, but never thinking to make them at home. After I tasted the real gnocchi during the recent Italy trip, then only I started to make them at home. My first impression of the gnocchi that we took in Italy, the texture was light like cloud !!
Gnocchi (pronoun as nyoh-kee) is very easy to make at home, just by mixing potato, flour and egg.
They are eaten as an alternative to soups or pasta.

Petai (stink bean) is one of my favourite bean, especially cooked with sambal prawn, super yummy! And this bean has very good health benefits, read here to understand more.
Usually I like to cook Petai with sweet sambal tumis , it is very quick to use this sweet sambal tumis to cook a plate of yummy Sambal Udang Petai. But sometime when I run out of sweet sambal tumis and have yet to cook a new batch. I will cook from the scratch. I would like to share with you few tips to cook a nice and yummy Sambal Udang Petai here.

The method of Japanese fried rice (Chahan) actually not much difference from Chinese fried rice, the only difference of this fried rice is using Japanese ingredients. I even made the Japanese roast pork Chashu (char siew) to cook with this fried rice. I would like to dedicate this post to Nami aka Just One Cookbook as the Chashu recipe and accessories in these pictures are related to her.
