Simple Steamed Porridge

One of my best investments is my kitchen steamer. It has been with us since J started taking solids. With my crazy schedule, it makes whipping up a healthy meal for the boy very easy.

Last night, I worked on a fish porridge for J's lunch. Steamed porridge to be very accurate.

Steaming does not produce those fine and gluey type porridge, but that's cool for us as J likes it better grainy and with texture.

Steamed Fish Porridge

2.5 tbsp of rice
1 cup of water
1 tsp of Brovil chicken stock
A slice of white fish fillet (we usually use red grouper or cod fish)
1 to 2 tbsp of chopped carrots (or however much your child likes)
2 to 3 stocks of chye sim , finely chopped (or which ever leafy vegetables your child fancies)

1) Steam the rice and carrots with the water and chicken stock for 20 min like how you would do with steaming rice. Cover the bowl with cling wrap (use microwave safe ones or even better, a cloth or plates ).
2) After the rice is cooked (there will still be water in the bowl as it is meant to be porridge), place the fish fillet on top and steam for another 15 to 20 mins (longer if your child likes his rice soft).
3) At the last 5 to 10 min of steaming, add in the chye sim.
4) Once done, stir and serve.

I usually use Brovil chicken stock when I am in a hurry and have no cooked stock ready. But, for a heartier meal. use pre-cooked stocked.

There you go! Easy porridge with a steamer!

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.

Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.

At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
