New Dish - Belacan Miding

Have you ever hear of Paku Miding ( a kind of vegetable )?? Actually I never eat this vege till I married my hubby and move back to Sibu. One day, MIL cooked this vege, I found it so weird...looks scary to me. But then I saw hubby and MIL keep eating, so let's give a try. At last I fall in love with this paku miding.

It is nice to cook with Belacan, add some chillies and the taste is yummy. This morning I went to wet market and I saw this Paku Miding vege. Bought some and tonight I cooked it as one of the dishes for dinner.

And here is a recipe for Belacan Miding :-


-About 500 grammes of paku miding (pluck tips only)

-About 20 to 40 grammes of belacan

-5 cloves garlic

-5 cloves shallots

-About 30 grammes of dried prawns (pre-soaked for 15 minutes)

-5 red chillies (remove seed if you prefer it less spicy)

-3 tablespoons warm water

- 3 tablespoons cooking oil


1.Pound or blend belacan, garlic, shallots, dried prawns and red chillies.

2.Heat 2 tablespoons oil in wok and saute belacan mix till aromatic (approximately 1 minute). Add another tablespoon of oil if belacan mix too dry or begin to burn.

3.Add miding to belacan mix and stir-fry briskly. Add water and continue stir frying till water almost dried up (but miding is moist).

NB: Can also cook this paku miding with beehoon. Soak the meehoon before frying together with paku miding.

My New Guitar

Ryan has been fancied about guitar lately ... he watched BJ playing a guitar at one of BJ's song (from Barney VCD-Rock N Roll Star). When he heard that song, he will put his hand at his tummy and pretend playing a guitar,shaking his head left and right.

A few days ago, MIL bought him a guitar. He was so happy, playing around with his new guitar. He tried to hang the guitar at his neck...then walk around and around happily in the living room pretending that he is BJ too.

You see ... a little BJ sit happily in the sofa with his new guitar. Just hope Ryan will takecare this guitar properly(sometimes he likes to bang and anyhow throw his toy).

Let's make a Guess ???

Why am I posting this 2 pictures ?? Lastnight when I was busy preparing dinner for Ryan, he took out his colour pencil and start to put them into the red stool. When he saw me walk to the living room, he showed it to me and said 'kek kek kek', I was thinking awhile and looked at the stool....Oh, then I knew that he was trying to tell me he make a cake by using the colour pencils.

Then he started to clap hand and sing la la la la, he also asked me to sing a song ... since he was so happy, I sang a Birthday Song while he was clapping his hands.

I called his daddy to take out camera and snapped this pictures ... Ryan also made a pose in front of his own self made birthday cake. Do you think it looks like a "birthday cake"????

** While drinking water **

One afternoon, I was thinking snap some Ryan's pictures while he was drinking water before nap time.This is how the conversation going on :-

Mummy : Ryan, mummy snap some pics for Ryan.
Ryan : 'Ok Ok' (he can say quite clearly).... then he faster grab his water bottle, then walk here n there in the bedroom while drinking his water.
Mummy : Ryan, be good boy..
lie down, dun walk here n there...he then make funny pose for me.

Nowadays, I am having a hard time to snap good pic of Ryan as he can't stop moving & most of the pics not so clear.
