One fine day in 2003, I decided to start a food blog to tease my sister and my mother who were both living in the USA. Somehow, along the way, I ended up feeding a lot of people just via the food pictures that I put up everyday. In 2005, I decided to take a break from blogging and just take it easy. So there were sporadic posts from my travels in the US as well as Germany and England. Now in 2009, I'm trying to pick it up again and start chronicaling my journey towards a better lifestyle that is more healthy than what it currently is right now.

Mason Jar Lunches : Chicken Noodle Soup in a Jar

My first time making this chicken noodle soup in a jar. It took longer than expected because I decided to make the chicken soup from scratch rather than something from instant powder. 

The inspiration for this lunch jar came from Buzzfeed Food.  Just add hot water and voilĂ ! Yummy hot noodles. 

The only thing I forgot to do was add salt to the chicken stock. Oh well.   

Homemade Herbal Tea

It’s a rainy Sunday afternoon so I decided to make a healthy warm drink. I boiled a pot of water, smash from lemongrass stalks with a pestle and cut some ginger torch (bunga kantan). Once the water has boiled and the herbs are getting discolored, I start adding in some slight sugar. Put into an enamel cup and drink when ready. 

This drink is great with stuff noses. It should clear up within minutes of taking this drink.
