My petunia photo on Ivy’s Kitchen’s signage

I will be going back to Singapore tomorrow after 2 weeks holidaying in my hometown Penang. It has been a fantastic break for me. No cooking or houseworks. Best of all is to have many “part-time” caretakers (aka my family members) taking turns to entertain my little boy. What a great relief! LOL! Nevertheless, we can’t wait to go back home and join the Christmas fun. The is the first Christmas...

We had a great time sharing our personal opinion on food, blogging experiences and photography tips. I would like to thank...

Penang nyonya kuih

(Ang koo kuih from Eaton) What is nyonya kuih? Nyonya may be originated from the Portugese word “dona”, which means “lady”. It refers to female descendants of the early Chinese immigrants who settled in Penang, Malacca and Singapore. Kuih is an Asian concept of cakes and pastries, different from that of the Western one in term of texture, flavour and appearance. ****************************************************************************************************************** Ever...

Vegetarian dinner at Lily’s Vegetarian Kitchen

I am not a pure vegetarian but I truly love vegetarian food (regardless of Chinese, Indian, Western….) more for health rather than for religious reason. This is why you can find a variety of simple homecooked vegetarian dishes I tried and shared with you in my blog (under the categories of “vegetarian”) with some of my top picks listed here. a) pesto pasta (Western) b) lentils with pumpkin and tomato...

Happy 2009!

Hi Everyone! I am back after a long holiday break. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday for both my son and myself. I didn’t cook at all during this period. I am so glad that my son loves all my mum’s cooking especially her “char siew” (barbeque) chicken. My hubby joined us towards end of December. He had not been to Penang for 2 years. Therefore, both of us launched a crazy...
