Hearty Lentil & Vegetable Soup by Extra Petite.

I have been very into cooking lately - I think its ever since I followed Chrissy Teigen on Instagram and everytime she posts a cooking related Insta-story, something just clicked. And most of the things she cooks are usually very simple and it makes you feel like you also can cook like this. Or maybe its the fact that her kitchen is a dream kitchen. Oh wells.

So, be expecting more cooking related posts because this cooking train is not planning to stop soon.

Big convert of lentil soup over here since our holiday to OZ Land years back. I have been trying to get that right lentil soup that made us fall in love again but cannot wan.

This is the closest to it I guess.

I found this recipe through this blogger and her recipes are all very easy and direct so I thought of giving it a try. May I say that it was a success.

Husband loved it. Mother in law loved it. Win-win. Everybody happy.

Here are snapshots from my Insta-stories for your kind reference. Heh.

And there you have it - simple dinner on a weekday night.

It looks like it's not going to be enough to fill the tummy but it's so filling! Adrian went for round two and mom in law kept the extra for the tomorrow night meal. It's a win yass.

I did it.

And the next post I'll be sharing should be 'Homemade Chicken Nuggets by Yours Truly'.

Stay tuned to find out!

Everything In Between.

I am back!

Okay, I have never left la so there is no coming back la. But I did sort of abandoned this space ever since the arrival of Alex. Guilty as charged please.

I still do find blogging very therapeutic but the lazy bug has gotten to me and I kinda let it stay. Heh. Or when I do have free time and got the oomph to blog, I usually (always) prefer to take a nap or watch Suits on Netflix. It's super addictive I tell you.

Anyways, here are some photos of what's been happening since February till now, sort of. So, really just everything in between. So much happened and I felt like I haven't even gotten off the roller-coaster yet. It's on a stagnant phase now - the cooling off period. Heh. From having the most expensive dim sum ever to a family photoshoot and seeing our little boy grow. He is nine months plus now.

I do, really do need a getaway.

When am I never needing one, right?

Photos are in random orders.

I have also been really interested in cooking, particularly western kind of food because way easier. Hah. And if anyone can grab Chrissy Teigen's cookbook, please let me know because I am dying to get one! And her pots and pans too!

I've enjoyed cooking so much that I try to cook something new every week - which is not realistic at all because every week sure got something on and cannot find the time to prep and cook one. So, it's been more like once every two weeks kinda thing.

Mister Koay loves it so I am earning the wife points correctly. And he does all the washing after so yay to me. Will be sharing the recipes and what I tried here soon. There's a few already. Hopefully lazy bug isn't here to visit again.

Till next time.
