Noodle Doodle @Mamee Jonker House, Melaka

Located at Jalan Hang Jebat, one of the UNESCO heritage building at the popular Jonker Street in Melaka. It is easily sighted because of the big MAMEE signage. Mamee brand or Mamee Monster is not something new to many of us. Mamee Monster was a popular snack during my younger days. I like to smash it then add the seasoning powder into it and shack it. 😀

*feeling so nostalgic*

Do you still eat Mamee Monster noodle snack? Yes, I do.

During the impromptu public holiday, I brought my family for a short trip to Melaka.

At Mamee Jonker House, you could shop for merchandises or products, participate in their activities (Lil Monster Kitchen or Noodle Doodle) or even dine in their cafe which serve mainly local food.

Since I didn’t have a chance to DIY my cuppa noodle at Yokohama Cup Noodles Museum, Japan……why not trying it here.

 

Each cup is priced at RM5.20. You can choose between Chicken or Curry or Tom Yam flavor seasoning for your noodle later.

These coloring pens are provided there. Despite children, I noticed that many adults enjoyed coloring and decorating the cup too. I believed coloring could help to relieve stress.

Jet was patiently coloring his cup of instant noodle.

“I’m gonna color my monster in pink!”

Our limited edition cup 🙂

After you are done decorating the cup, head over to the “Packaging Station”, at the end of the room.

You will need to begin at Step 1. Step 1 and 2 basically about filling the cup with a piece of instant noodle.

Step 3 will insert the seasoning sachet into the cup.

Then, you are required to select 4 out of 6 condiments. Choose from dehydrated chilli, cabbage, chives, corn, carrots and green peas. Therefore you can custom made your cup of noodle with your favorite choice of condiments.

Sealing the cup noodle.

Cup noodle came out of the ‘Shrinking Machine’ was let to cool before collection. An expiry date was stamped on the cup. I noticed that it has shorter shelf life compared to those we bought from supermarket.

As we were leaving, we spotted the Mamee Monster mascot. Everyone was trying to take photo with him, while Jet was pulling me away because he is afraid of mascots. =_=

All in all, it was a good experience and a fun-filled activity to do with your children.

Baking Workshop @Gifted, Baking Studio Seremban

Children has the ability to explore and gain knowledge in varies field at a very young age.

Besides studies, I wished to expose Jet towards more activities that he has interest in it.

From the past cupcake fondant decorating workshop, I was surprised that Jet developed an interest in it. Furthermore I also noticed that he has the patient to slowly beautify it.

Recently I discovered a new baking studio located at Plazo S2 Heights. I dropped a message to the owner to inquire about basic baking workshop that is suitable for children. Ashley, who is the owner of Gifted, baking studio suggested Royal Icing Cookies.

We attended the workshop last month. Initially Jet was rather shy and quiet.

Ashley, the young and talented owner cum pastry instructor showing us the ingredients and step by step guide on making the cookie.

Simple steps and only required flour, butter and egg. It is easy for children to cope too. *just use a utensil to gradually mix the ingredients evenly.*

This mixture will gonna be our cookies.

When the mixture is ready, roll it under the baking paper to flatten to thickness around 5mm.

Once its flatten to our desired thickness, it is required to put to chill (recommended to put in freezer awhile) so that we can easily cut them into shapes.

The shaped cookies are ready to bake. Jet was very anticipate for the result.

Ta-daa…freshly baked cookies are ready to be decorated. *Let the cookies cool down before decorating it*

Jet was having hard time to select his favorite colors for the icing.

*Use gel based colors for icing*

Preparing the colored icing in a piping bag.

Jet was concentrating on how to decorate royal icing onto cookie.

It is required to pipe a border around the edges of the cookie, then only fill the area with icing. A toothpick is needed to guide the flood icing as it spreads.

Jet decorated most of the cookies by himself.

The deco was tough at first, but once you grasp the technique, you will be able to do it well.

HAHAHAHA!! Our final result. Will you buy? 😀

Thank you Ashley for this lovely photo of us.

Gifted is a cosy and quiet environment for workshops. Jet and I enjoyed making Royal Icing Cookies. Thank you Ashley for your patience too. He’s been asking me when are we going again. He also asked; can we make cake next time?

Baking Fun with Little One, Thomas & Friends Cupcakes

Honestly, I’m not really a baking person. LOL!
Because I felt there is so much hassle in baking. Or probably I am lazy. 😀

Recently, Jet asked me about baking cupcakes and he wanted to decorate the cupcakes.

Baking

I stumbled upon this Cupcake Decoration Workshop organized by Pastime, collaborated with Sugarcraft by mil which held at Book Garden Seremban Gateway.

I then signed up for Jet and myself. It was just a few hours workshop. But I noticed Jet enjoyed it and he did most of the steps by himself with a lil guidance from the teacher and me.

box

One day, when I was doing shopping at Jaya Grocer The Gardens Mall, I chanced upon this box of Thomas & Friends Cake Kit. It was placed at the baking section. The instructions sounded simple and easy with everything included in the box. (except egg). So, I took a box and decided to give it a try.

We did this over the weekend to fill our time.

This pack contains ; cake mix, icing mix, decorations and cake cases.

IMG_20181014_162648_resized_20181022_024925200

While letting the cakes to cool, lets do the icing mix. Just add cold water and mix until its smooth. Begin with adding 10ml water, then gradually add water if you prefer the icing to be more spreadable.

IMG_20181014_163118_resized_20181022_024925536

Yay, the cakes are now ready for decorations. Furthermore the cakes rise very well, aren’t they?

{REVIEW} PostnataLee Breastfeeding Home 李医务所 ä¸“业月子中心

Most women will go through a confinement period after giving birth. Hence confinement refers to a system for recovery following childbirth. The confinement period may vary individually but a common length is usually 28 days to 100 days. During this period of time, mothers are required to rest as much as possible. Proper rest and stress free environment makes a lot of difference.

New parents are often excited upon the arrival of their newborn. Thus, they are also stressed up because expectation is always different from reality.

Those days, we only have our mother or mother in law to take role as a confinement lady. Then we have some hired professional confinement lady to stay in. However in this era, confinement centers are so well established that some mothers would prefer to choose completing their confinement period in a center which they felt like as though they are spending vacation in a hotel. A place where you don’t need to worry about your meal, your laundry, your baby’s soiled diaper or to bath a newborn. Many new parents are still unfamiliar with these.

PostnataLee

I am glad to know that PostnataLee Breastfeeding Home 李医务所 专业月子中心 is not just an ordinary confinement center for mothers to rest. But it is also known as breastfeeding home where the nurses and doctors here are fully supportive in breastfeeding. They will support and guide via action instead of verbal talking. Breastfeeding is not something new today, but there are still lack of information and support especially in Seremban. Being a breastfeeding mother myself, I understand the struggle and also the benefits of breastfeeding. (Keyword; ‘Do not give up’).

DSC05445

The founder, Dr. Choong Syih Ying is a passionate and also a friendly person. A very humble person I would say. Not just a founder of the center, but she’s also a doctor herself. She has 3 years of working experiences in Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Labour room ; 4 years experiences in Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

New mom often feel that she’s a failure when she couldn’t handle her newborn. Dr. Choong will also provide counseling. Hence mothers and babies will put under good care of her. Dr. Choong will know what’s best for them.

DSC05461

Dr.Choong also explained the difference of using diaper and cloth diaper. PostnataLee Breastfeeding Home uses only cloth diaper. It is more environmental friendly and also reduce the risk of getting nappy rash. Besides that, baby’s clothing are also provided here.

DSC05460

In case the mother need some peace time, here’s the baby room. It is put under a closed circuit observation.
Besides that, they also provide in house jaundice checking using latest technology without blood withdrawing (transcutaneous) and phototherapy (if necessary) for babies.

DSC05462

There are total 7 certified nurses here.

DSC05464

I especially like this grand stairway. 🙂

DSC05468

The spacious and bright dining area onlooking the green garden. An area where mummies can have their delicious yet healthy food here.

DSC05450

A set of lunch meal complete with all the nutrition.  Besides that, daily tonic soup using Sulfur free Chinese herbs specially customized by the Traditional Chinese Medicine Master and prepared according to mummies body needs. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is served daily. Not forgetting tea break in between main meals. Dr. Choong also ensured that there’s no repetition in dish throughout the whole confinement period here. (Unless there’s any request from mummy here)

PostnataLee2

With a special focus on eating foods considered to be nourishing for the body and help with the production of breastmilk, Dr. Choong also stressed on the food quality. Ingredients used here are kampung chicken, bentong ginger, organic vegetables, oat noodle, homemade rice wine, homegrown lemon grass, sulfur-free Chinese herbs, Anxin Pork. No salt was added to the dishes, yet the dishes are filled with natural flavors.

I was told that the baby changing table and baby crib was custom made to a height that suit mothers with caesarean. Baby crib look old-skool, but the pros are it has better ventilation and mother laying on bed could monitor her baby movement from all angles.

With current package promotion, package price start from RM7888 to RM9888. An additional free traditional post natal massage & face lymphatic facial for the RM9888 package.

Rooms here are non-sharing. At PostnataLee Breastfeeding Home, stay in husband/baby’s father is most encouraging. Dr. Choong believes that a husband should stay in together to create a good family bonding and give the best moral support to their wife.

DSC05473

A bonus point here is; not just a confinement home, PostnataLee Breastfeeding Home also provide parenting guidance to new parent before the arrival of the newborn, during confinement period and even after confinement period.

Baby Jet 1st Experience @Wonder Pool Baby Spa & Wellness, Seremban

We often hear the adults went for spa. A way to pamper ourselves.

But these days babies too get the opportunity to go for spa. Hmm…the person who came up with this business is brilliant!

Before this, I’ve heard about baby spa. But they are all located in KL.

To my surprise, this newly opened Wonder Pool Baby Spa & Wellness in Seremban has given me a chance to bring Baby Jet to experience it!*Happy Mode*

I paid RM58 (NP RM88) during the opening promo and entitled for 30 minutes swim & 30 minutes yoga/massage session.

Here at Wonder Pool Baby Spa & Wellness, they offers Baby Yoga/Massage & Baby Swim. Consists of 2 small and 1 large pool. These small pools are suitable for smaller babies. The baby spa program, provides a supervised and social environment for parents and their babies to nurture the brain development, strengthen the respiratory and enhance motor movement of newborn babies.

 

Some stretching before going into the pool

Baby swim is for infants up to 3 years of age and is conducted in a warm-water tub within a temperature-controlled room.

What’s up mummy? Baby, are you ready to go for swim? (Swimming diaper is provided for the session)

The Benefits of Swim:-

  • Train motor movement (foot & body)
  • Improved muscle development
  • Build up confidence & self-esteem

Guess my niece would love to join in the fun too!

Baby Jet had a relaxing swim

After swim, the therapist will continue with massaging session using sunflower seed oil.

Benefits of massage:-

  • Improved baby sleep quality
  • Better sense of relaxation
  • Improved muscle development

Quite satisfied with their service and probably next month will bring Baby Jet here again . Baby feels happy, mummy’s pocket not happy. HAHAHA!
Hope they will come up with the idea to include mummy in the massage too. Hehe….

Remark: This baby spa has closed down. Thank you.
