Don’t scoff

My aunty’s only been back at the house during from Thursdays to Sundays, and she’s annoyed me twice so far over the same thing. The last time, I’d mentioned that I was bringing lunch to work because I’d wanted to eat more healthily. And she’d scoffed at me. I don’t know why really. I’ve never […]

BMI cut-offs for Asians

Because Silver had mentioned it, and I went and looked it up, there have been revised BMI cut-offs for Asians. I didn’t read into it that much, but here’s a link to the Singapore government’s article for it. That’s the one I’ll be looking at for future reference. And for those who want a website […]

Chilled Cheesecake

My mum’s made this cheesecake since we were kids. It’s got lots of gelatin in it, so it’s more like a jelly kind of dessert that’s slightly smooth and lemony; you can’t taste the cheese at all. We’d made up a batch for a friend of mine, but it didn’t turn out so well. For […]

Bento 12: Cold Soba with braised pork and mushrooms and asparagus

Dipping sauce, steamed asparagus, braised pork+mushrooms. Soba. Okay, so this is a repeat of bento 04, but the pork this time was cooked with vinegar and less spices. I think the right name for the dish is braised pork. I think. It was leftovers from dinner with some thick succulent mushrooms. Yum. Problem with the […]
