Pork trotter ( Pig's Leg ) in vinegar



I really like to eat pork trotter vinegar but I don’t know how to cook. I asked my mom to teach me before but her way is quite complicated. Then, one day I told my friend, she teaches me her way. The recipe is very simple.


Ingredients:


1 pork trotter
600ml black rice vinegar
Ginger
Dried chilies
Sesame oil
600ml water


1. Cut the trotter into pieces. Boil in water for 15 minutes. Drain and put aside.
2. Wash, peel and smashed the ginger.
3. Heat the sesame oil in the pot. Stir fry the ginger until fragrant and add in the pork trotter.
4. Fry the pork trotter for a while then add in the vinegar, water and dried chilies, bring to boil then reduce to low heat. Simmer until trotter is tender.


My recipe is different with local pork trotter vinegar because I got add dried chilies. So, it is spicy and sour, I really like the taste. It will taste better if you leave it over night. If you don’t like spicy, you can don’t add the chilies. Hope you like it.

The Citybayview Revolving Restaurant






This is the view from the restaurant when we just arrived......
After 30 minutes....




My family is an ice-cream lover.....
















Apple pie and vanilla ice-cream....







Seafood Platter...






At the revolving restaurant, the menu doesn’t have much choice and the buffet also doesn’t have much varieties. I think you can just go there for ice-cream. The ice-cream is from Baskin Robbins. We go there is because of the ice-cream and the environment.



My daughter really enjoy the food very much, because she don't have chance to eat deep fried food at home.

Apple chips

Last time my sister-in-law told me that US they have apple chips and we cannot find it here. One day, I went to Jusco I saw apple chips but the taste is not that good and not crispy at all. This time my brother went to US and bought apple chips for me. I try it and it is really very good. The apple chips sold here cannot compare with the US one.

Tumbler


This is my daughter creation....

Backpack




When my brother goes traveling he will bring back flight toys or things for children from the flight he takes. Then he will give it to my daughter. This time he brings back a backpack. This backpack includes notebook, crayon, stickers, coloring book, book mark, passport cover and sticker puzzle. The thing I like the most is the passport cover. It’s really very nice. At first, I thought is just a bag but later my daughter open only I know there are so many things inside. Before I manage to take picture, my daughter already start busy with her stickers and crayon.

Biscuit

During pregnancy I like to replace my junk food with biscuit, dried fruits and nuts. However, now keep hearing the news that too much melamine in the biscuit. So, when I want to buy biscuit also has worried whether it is safe to eat. Many biscuits need ammonium bicarbonate. We don’t know how to differentiate whether this is ok or not. Which level is over the limit? We are not chemist and the box won’t tell us where the ingredients are come from. The only facts that they provide is nutrition, made or manufacturing from. It’s really very hard for us to choose. Now, it’s happen to the biscuit, but we don’t know when it will pop out news from other product. And some of the food we’ve been eating for so long. Really worry…….. Do you have anything to share with me? What is your point of view?

Chloe Pretend to be Doctor

My daughter likes to watch Barney very much. In the show, Barney always got what you want to be when you grow up? One of the children will pretend to be doctor. Since then my daughter keep asking me to buy her doctor’s tools. So, her daddy promises to buy for her.

After we bought for her, she was so happy. When we arrived home, she wants to play with it. She asks me and her daddy sit down to be her patient. She wants to check our tummy, ears, eyes and mouth. Her daddy says, after playing this toy, maybe next time she can be a doctor. Ha ha….I laughed. I say “Don’t be silly. If what we want our child to be, then we bought them the toy, next time they will become what they play today. That’s very good. We no need to worry anymore.” It is so funny. What a silly thought my husband have.

Why, Why, Why?

Since last month, my daughter keep asking me why, why, why? Everything I do she will ask me why? Why girl have to squad down pass urine? Why daddy stand when he pass urine? Why daddy cannot go in girl’s toilet? Why mommy this and that? Urgh….sometimes I do feel very annoying. But, what to do, this is children growing pathway.

One day, her daddy locks the main door in the house. She asks him “why we have to lock the door?” Her daddy replies “If we didn’t lock the door, later at night the thief can come into our house and steal our things.” She says “oh, ok. Then now where is the thief?” My husband also doesn’t know how to answer her. When she asks where is the policeman? The policeman is in the police station. Where is the doctor? The doctor is in the hospital. When she asks where is the thief? What should we answer? Aiyo…I really feel headache answer her questions.

Children can think of a question through our answer. So, the question is endless. I feel like don’t want to answer her question, but she will only learn through the entire question. I will answer her question as much as possible. I really don’t know when all this will end………

My Daughter First Computer


Last year my brother-in-law bought a computer for my daughter, but that time she is too young to play with. So, I kept until now only take out for her to play. Although her age is still not appropriate to play.
This ClickStart My First Computer from Leap Frog introduces computer and preschool skills by turning any TV into a child’s first computer. A child can learn words, letters, phonics, numbers, colours, logic skills and other essentials. This product is suitable for children 3-6 years old. I do think this is a great product for your child to learn while their playing games.
My daughter love to play with it very much. However, she still cannot manage the mouse properly. So, she can only play with games using the keyboard. Maybe she just need more practice. Whenever I take my laptop out, she will ask me to take her computer too. She just likes to follow what I did.
