[CC Cooks]: Vietnamese beef stew


Tuesdays are my exercise & dinner days with one of my good friends. I did tell you that I need to get fit for summer, didn't I? =P Well, after we both practically die from the workout, we seriously need some sustenance. We usually eat at my house, and we just buy things together to share the cost. 

What did we have this week? Vietnamese beef stew!

[Eating out]: Dae Jang Keum - Northbridge

With the warmer weather settling in, it's time for me to get my beach body! Haha, who am I kidding...I'm just embarrassingly unfit and want to get fit so I feel less guilty when I eat like a pig. Also because I want to train my long-distance running!

I met up with a close friend, GF, the other day for a short run at Langley Park then for dinner. He had never eaten Korean cuisine before and when he said he wanted to try it, I knew just the place to go!

[CC Cooks]: Happy Father's Day!

After being introduced to 8-flavour pork belly in Melbourne on his recent work trip (err back in August ><!), my Dad has taken a liking obsession to that. It's so odd because he rarely eats samgyupseol when we go for KBBQ! Anyway, we (the kids) were going to take him out for dinner on Father's Day this year, but Dad chose to have a bbq instead...in the rain =.='

Why a bbq? especially risking the wind and rain? Well, he wanted pork belly...so pork belly it was!

[CC Bakes]: A hidden surprise for GC!

Aaaah, another birthday in the family, another cake. My schedule is so busy but I'm sure you all know by now that cooking and baking is my kind of therapeutic recluse.

Though I love making cakes for my entire family, and all people in fact, making a cake for GC is my favourite. He's always excited to see what I come up with, and gives me constructive comments mostly without me having to ask.

[Eating Out]: D'Nonya Malaysia - East Vic Park

Special chicken nasi lemak (with beef rendang)

I've always passed by this place, but I usually cook so I've never had the chance to go. I headed here with my brother, sis-in-law and some friends after I visited their Church (I usually go to a different one).

I've been craving nasi lemak for so long so when I spotted it on the menu, I knew that would be the one! So what did I think of it?
