Homemade dinner – Fresh Seafood Fettucine

I must say, that I don’t cook often.. But when I do, one thing I love to cook is pasta dishes. Why? Coz it’s simple, elegant yet tastes just so good! Pair that with some grilled fresh seafood? Yeah, that made my night! Oh, and for dessert? Avocado juice with chocolate ice cream! Recipes below..

So.. we have:

A simple, light and healthy salad with Japanese sesame dressing (store-bought)

Recipe & Ingredients: Mix 1 cup of iceberg lettuce, 1 cup of purple lettuce, 1/2 cup of grated carrot, 1/2 cup of sweet corn kernels, 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, 1 tsp of sesame seed and 1/2 cup of Japanese sesame dressing (or suit to taste..)

Easy right? Now let’s move on to the main dish: Seafood fettucine. For this dish, you can use other types of pasta, depends which you prefer.. Since I didn’t have time to prepare fresh pasta sauce, I used what’s available in my fridge: store-bought pesto sauce, which goes with the dish nicely.

Recipes & Ingredients:

Pasta: Cook pasta of preference to al dente, stir in pesto sauce, seasoned with black pepper and chilli flakes to taste.

Salmon: Seasoned Salmon fillet with black pepper, salt & a dash of lemon juice. Let it sit for 5 minutes (prepare and pre-heat pan in the meantime). Pan-fry salmon fillet for 5 minutes each side (or more if you’d like your salmon all cooked through). Continue reading

Italy Trip part 2 – Cinque Terre, Monaco, Bellagio

We spared a day for a tour to Cinque Terre (at Liguria region in Italy). This place is a UNESCO Heritage Site, consisting of five small villages: Manarola, Vernazza, Monterosso, Corniglia and Riomaggiore. You can travel between these villages either by train or boat (we tried both just for the sake of experience haha..). These villages, when we arrived, had nothing special about it (or so we thought..), but after spending an hour or so walking up to higher ground, we saw what was all the fuss about and really, how pretty it was..

Hangout with bro at Starbucks Coffee

After dinner, was feeling a bit bored.. So I decided to ask my bro to join me to Starbucks. To my surprise he agreed.. So here we are, sitting at Starbucks enjoying a cup of extra strong coffee (I’m out of my mind to opt for double shot latte, I think I’ll be awake for the whole night… Hope not ๐Ÿ˜ฃ)
My bro, opted for his favorite: green tea latte.

And this is me enjoying my double-shot latte.. (Fingercross I won’t turn into panda tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜„)

Have a good evening guys!
Cheers from me for now..

It’s my Lil Bro’s Birthday!

Following my first post, I was thinking “What should I post today?” Then it suddenly came to me that it’s my brother’s birthday today! He turns 14 this year, time surely flies!

The cake before we lit the candle up. I didn’t take a picture of the inside of the cake (sorry I forgot ๐Ÿ˜…), but it’s basically three layers of chocolate sponge cake covered with cream (bought from Clovers Bakery in Medan)

That’s my happy bro in his school uniform

That’s our family: gramps, grandma, mom, bro and me (unfortunately dad is away so he’s not in the photo).

Anyway, wish him a very Happy Birthday, wish him a great wonderful coming years, may success and happiness always be with you. May the force be with you ๐Ÿ˜‰
Cheers for now
