Hail, Storm and Flood : A Day to Remember .

8 Mar

(the front of our house)

it was the very first time I was shaken by the weather.

It wouldnt have been that bad if I wasn’t driving when it started hailing as heavy as when it snowed in Bulla during Winter. Just that the size of the hail were the size of golf balls. It was horrible.

I had to drive under a flyover to hide from the horrible hail and right infront of us was holwing winds and super heavy rain that caused a flood within minutes! I almost fainted. haha

(on our way home in the car)

seeeee. I can’t even see what’s infront of me. The worse time to drive ever!

and the amount of hail covered the roads, trees, grass and car park. and our backyard and balcony were also covered with ice! it was definitely a scene to remember!

(our backyard)

The weather is definitely crazier than I remember it ever was. Hopefully won’t have this kind of hail and flood anymore!

Baby’s Steamed Yam Cake

8 Mar

One of the people who inspires me to cook and bake is no doubt my baby

and of course he himself is a chef! hehe and when he cooks, the food is just awesome! hehe

some of his famous dishes are his crispy skin pork that my family adores, his chicken rice, and of course during chinese new year, his big treasure pot! (: There are alot more, so stay tuned for more in the future! hehe

so a week ago, while walking and shopping for groceries at Woolworths, we saw yam selling cheap! so baby decided to get a relatively big one and make steamed yam cake!

so what is steamed yam cake? it’s a local delicacy back home in sunny Singapore and is usually enjoyed as morning snacks or even for breakfast with rice rolls and a special sweet sauce. This savoury snack is always enjoyed in my house as well as in baby’s household and his grandma makes the best ones I heard (: It’s made of cubed yam and rice flour and is denser than the steamed carrot cake (and my mummy makes a mean carrot cake which I miss so much), and is topped with spring onions, fried shallots, chilli and dried shrimps! I had it for breakfast this morning and it’s super yummy!

So try and make it and hope you will enjoy it as much we did! (:
