Experiment No 3

We have been staying home on a Sunday pretty often these days. Partly because during the weekday, we were so busy that by Sunday, we just wanted to stay home to relax and do nothing.

Even though we, very much would love to catch up with some sleep but with my little chatty princess around. It is near impossible.

She is always talking about something. Now that she discovered that my new helper is more conversant in English. If she knows that she cannot "disturb" her parents, or her brother, she will find my helper and chat.

Due to her hearty nature and loud voice, gosh it mission impossible to seek peace when she is around. You will be hearing constant hearty laugh and her voice buzzing round the house. This is the time we wished for a bigger house.

Then again, we can’t complain as we are happy that she is a happy child.

For lunch, I proceed on to do my third recipe and thanks to Jo who took the trouble to scan a few recipes to me, I have chosen this because it is not a meat dish or should I consider so because there is fish paste in it.

Initially I tried getting fish paste in the supermarket but with no luck. Then I thought perhaps I should try the Yong Tau Foo stall in the wet market and I was lucky.

For 300g of fish paste at only S$2.00, I think it is not too bad. At least it saved me the hassle of churning fish paste from a whole fish.

My family and I enjoyed this and I hope you do too.

    Jess, same here. Or if she is not well, i can tell straight away. hahaha

    ZY, I totally forgotten about the chilli sauce by hey, it still tasted good without it.
