I love their TWG Chamomile Tea, can’t resist myself for not drinking it every night throughout my stay in Singapore which I’m lucky to say, the hotel which I’ve stayed actually served TWG teabags. LOL!

The TWG boutique café is located at Marina Bay Sands Shopping Mall, Singapore. And on my first visit there, I had even bought 3 pieces of Macaroons at SGD2.00 each. For it’s my first time ever tasted Macaroon, I would say it was absolutely fantastic. 🙂

 

Avocado

19 Nov

Avocado

The avocado (Persea americana) is a tree native to the Caribbean, Mexico, South America and Central America, classified in the flowering plant family Lauraceae along with cinnamon, camphor and bay laurel. Avocado or avocado pear also refers to the fruit (technically a large berry that contains a large seed) of the tree, which may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped or spherical.

Avocados are a commercially valuable fruit and are cultivated in tropical climates throughout the world (and some temperate ones, such as California), producing a green-skinned, pear-shaped fruit that ripens after harvesting. Trees are partially self-pollinating and often are propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.

Health benefits

Avocados are loaded with nearly 20 essential nutrients such as dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, magnesium and folic acid. They are also cholesterol and sodium free, and an excellent source of monosaturated fat. Avocados represent one of the few fruits that provide “good” fats, that can help reduce blood cholesterol levels and decrease risk for heart disease.

Its creamy consistency makes it the first fruit that a baby can eat.

Spicy Hot Basil Minced Meat

19 Nov

This is one simple recipe that a friend of mine, who doesn’t know how to cook shared with me. Good try!

Ingredients:

5 red chili padi, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
300g minced meat
1 pack of basil leaves
3 Tbsp Olive oil

Methods:

1. Marinade minced meat with white pepper, salt, soy sauce and coriander seeds powder. Mix well.

2. Heat up oil in a wok, add garlic and ginger and fry until fragrant. Add marinated chicken and stir-fry for two to three minutes until just cooked through.

3. Serve with fragrant rice.

Note: Be caution with the chili padi when you chopped. Avoid touching the chili seeds, as it causes the hot sensation.
