Stew Pork Ribs with Mustard Green 


Unbelievably easy to cook! No, you need not be stunned like vegetables. 😂


  • Mustard greens, approx. 500gm
  • Rice, 1.5cups
  • Carrot, 2 medium sized, cubed
  • Shiitake mushrooms, cubed
  • 1 can of stew pork chop 红烧猪排 
  • Seasoning, use the can food soup
  • Oil and garlic

I know, it is not healthy to use can food. I cook this dish again and replace the can food with roasted pork, and dark sauce, oyster sauce, pepper, sesame oil, soya sauce as seasoning.

Al-Ameen Eating House @ Cheong Chin Nam Road


Keema rice, masala tandoori chicken, garlic naan, fried chinese bee hoon, egg prata, lime juice, teh o limau.

All above cost us less than $25 at Al Ameen Eating House. It has been a while since we last had indian food, we love indian food but we can’t have it frequently as Asher only eats a few dishes like prata, naan and chappati. It will be great if he eats aloo gobi and some spicy meal, but for now, we can only go to restaurants that serve multi nations dishes, there are quite a few around the area and Al Ameen is just one of the few that serve pretty good dishes and reasonably priced. 👍

Movie Date – Cinderella 


Since the first time he watched the trailer on the TV, he wanted me to make a promise that I would bring him to the cinema. Strange huh?  Cinderella? Girl’s movie? Well, obviously not to him, he says he likes everything magical. It started showing on 13th March, we didn’t catch it until now, see, attending afternoon session for school is really not a good thing for preschoolers, so many restrictions! However, we found a valid reason to skip a school day last week as we had appointment with the speech therapist at JMC on the same day. In order to make sure I didn’t miss the show, I even bought the tickets in advance. 

So, how was the show? 👍👍👍 Asher loved the show so much that he could share the story with daddy. At the end, he could even tell me we have to  


Yes, be kind to everyone because   

I believe in this. 😊

Side note: Asher enjoys every outings nowadays as he realize he can read the signs and notes when we are out in the mall or anywhere we go, he is overjoyed, we praise him a lot and sometimes, a little bit exaggerated, it kinda help to boost his confidence in reading. 😉

Just 8 weeks ago we realized Asher could solve simple multiplication sums, however, I didn’t want to introduce division because he wouldn’t be using them until P3/4 and I thought division might not be “as easy” to teach, boy I was so wrong. (How hard can it be since he already know multiplication?)

I was like all parents, wondering why you should teach multiplication and division so early? Then I remember many children, including my neighbour’s kid, struggle to learn multiplication and division at primary schools, not so much of understanding the concept but trying to memorize the time table. Now Asher understands the basic foundation of these, able to remember the time table by singing multiplication songs, he finds them easy, fun to learn and less boring as compare to addition and subtraction. 


Believe it or not, it took only 5 minutes to teach him division. He was dying to learn and  he claimed that one of the kid in school could solve them but teacher didn’t allow him to learn multiplication, let alone division. And no, I didn’t bother to ask teachers if it was true.
