Happy 4th Anniversary - Cuisine Paradise

Today, 30th April 2009 is the 4th Anniversary of this blog - CUISINE PARADISE. At the beginning it was just a blog whereby I keep an online record of our family daily meals to share with friends and readers. But after sometime, I found that there are too many categories that I wish to try on so in order to keep a better view and records of all the posts. I sub-divided the Main Blog into another 4 individual blogs which is the Tea-Time Delights(collection of tea-time delights and kid's meal), Kitchen Tips(collection of ingredients and kitchen gadgets), Recipe Index(a list of recipes that I tried)and Eramblings(my walk with the Lord).

I sincerely wanted to thank all those readers and participants for joining the Blog Giveaway Event which just ended on the 17 April 2009. With all your warm co-operation, this event is held successfully with so many draw entries. I hope those winner of the draw will like their gifts and be of some use to them. Lastly, I wish to thank everyone for participating and stay tune for the next upcoming Blog Event which will be up soon in May.

Lastly, just wish to share with you some of my favour photos in my blog posts which marked my 4 years journey in blogging. There are so many kinds of food that I had tried & test out during my blogging days and I also wanted to sincerely thanks Lijie and Daniel who interview & published my blog and recipes. This credit really brings a BIG encouragement in my blogging life. Thank you..... and most of all..thank you those who support this blog. Hope there will be another 4 years coming by... lol

Bento #24 - Homemade Fan Choy

This is my Morning Tea-break Bento. I reheat the Fan Choy that my mum specially made for us as Breakfast and packed it together with a few extra Siew Mai and Har Kao(prawn dumpling). This definitely marked my day with a hearty Homemade Dim Sum Breakfast. Posted by Picasa

Homemade Banana & Passion Fruit Jam

This is definitely a simple and easy to attempt keeper recipe. I got to know this special Homemade Banana & Passion Fruit Jam from Happy Home Baking website(click here). You should take a look at her recipe if you are interested in making your own jam at home. It's very simple and straight forward. All you required is only 3 Ingredients which are:- Ripe Banana, Passion fruit Pulp and Sugar.

Put all these ingredients into a small heavy-duty saucepan and simmer on medium heat for about less than 10 minutes and you will have your very own Homemade jam in no time...... So do hope by to her blog shown on the above link for more detail :) I promise you will be in love with the texture and fragrant of this jam. Posted by Picasa

Bento #23 - Steam Herbal Chicken

It had being a long interval since I last prepared Bento for Rey on the Panda Bento. Since we have a long weekend last week due to Good Friday, I managed to squeeze some extra time to do marketing during Sunday after Church to grab some grocery in the market to prepare our lunch and my Monday, Bento Lunch to work.

Since I only have about 1.5 hrs in the morning to get ready for work and school for Rey. I have decided to prepare steam lunch, what I need to do is just to steam the rice, herbal chicken and dumpling together then arranged them nicely in the bento box :)

I am so happy to receive my Bento Contest gift from Susan Yuen last week. This is my 1st online contest and it is such a suprised that the Seaside Bento that I did for Rey a few weeks back managed to get into the 5th place for this Bento Contest that is organised by Susan from Hawaii Bento Box.

Thank you Susan for organising such a fun and interesting contest and as well as your gifts and card. Thank you so much. Posted by Picasa
