Slightly elaborate Instagram updates with a Tomato & Ham Pasta recipe.

Do you know what this is?

# – Take a guess.

It’s a pet overall that my mom has fashioned out of a pair of old granny pants. My mom even made a hole for the tail…it is freakin’ brilliant!


This is Charlie looking absolutely miffed because I tied his patch of hair up.

# – Dude needs a groomin’.

FTS, while writing this post I forgot he had a grooming appointment at 3pm today. Completely forgot about it T_T.

Looks like a couple more weeks before we’ve got time to make you look more presentable, boy.


This qipao is 31 years old. My mom wore this on her wedding day and soon, I will be wearing it on mine too :)

My mom was a really tiny girl and according to her, the dress was loose on her.

I’m just glad I could fit in it now because I remember trying it when I was 15 and it wouldn’t even zip up pass my hips!!!

My mom has a good strategy, that I wear this while saying goodbye to guests on my reception cause I won’t be sitting down. Cause if I sat down, my belly layers will jut out. Well, thanks for the advice Mom!


This is Mom being a total fan girl posing with Sam Lee, a HK actor. We were at Unity Store KL launch.

She’s currently watching a TVB show with him in it called Ghetto Justice. I think he looks a lot cuter in real life!


Today’s dinner was pumpkin gnocchi with spinach & tomatoes in Chinoz BSC. One of my favourite foods and about the only vegetarian that rocks my socks off.

# – Top is fish & chips (ordinary) but pumpkin gnocchi below is OMGZ!

Pillowy but light gnocchi with a mild pumpkin taste with blanched spinach and tomato sauce. So simple but soooooooooo gooood!


And now….recipe for my simple tomato & ham pasta. This is a truly simple recipe and doesn’t require many ingredients. Very tasty and quite healthy too!

# – Simple tomato & ham pasta.

The ingredients:

  • 200grams of pasta (I used tagliatelle), cooked according to instructions on packet
  • 2 tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 slices of ham, julienned
  • 300ml of tomato juice
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • #1 – First saute the sliced onions until translucent.

    #2 – Then, throw in the ham and stir fry until slightly browned.

    #3 – Next, throw in the quartered tomatoes.

    #4 – With a potato masher, squash the tomatoes till they break down. Crying.

    #5 – Pour in the tomato juice, little by little and stir until you get the consistency of a slightly thickened sauce.

    #6 – Season with salt & pepper. Remember to taste as you go as tomato juice is quite salty on its own!

    #7 – Dump in the cooked pasta (which you of course, was already cooking while you were making the sauce) and mix to coat evenly.

    #8 – Tomato & ham pasta with a sprinkling of grated parmesan, DONE!

    Love this dish, I have made it several times actually. It’s quick & easy to make and really flavourful without having to use an entire can of plum tomatoes or herbs. You’d be surprised!

    Have a good week, peeps :)

    Spicy tuna and French bean tagliatelle recipe.

    This dish was made by the BF. I was having the blues so he decided to cook dinner, which is a great thing because my food does reflect my emotions. When I’m feeling iffy, trust me whatever I cook would taste freaking iffy too :P

    # – Spicy tuna and French bean tagliatelle.

    The pasta was a superb comfort food! Thanks Boobehs! Al-dente pasta coated evenly with a perfectly flavoursome sauce. Hrmmm, my mouth waters at the thought of the dish.

    The ingredients:

    • 3 cloves of garlic, sliced
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 can of plum tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 can of tuna chunks in brine, drained
    • 3 tablespoons of tomato puree
    • A handful of french beans, chopped
    • 3 fresh tomatoes, cut into wedges
    • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of Italian Herbs or Herb de Provence
    • 2 teaspoons of ground black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 teaspoons of Tabasco sauce
    • Tagliatelle for two people

    # – First, sauteed some garlic slices in a pan till fragrant.

    # – Then, throw in the sliced onions.

    # – Followed by 3 tablespoons of tomato puree. Stir to mix.

    # – Don’t forget a couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce.

    # – Now, empty a an of drained tuna chunks into the pan.

    # – Then, chuck in the french beans.

    # – Some black pepper……..

    # – As well as Tabasco sauce if you like a stronger kick…

    # – Then, empty a can of chopped plum tomatoes.

    # – Season with one tablespoon of brown sugar to offset the tartness a bit.

    # – A few dashes of Italian Herbs or Herb de Provence for more depth of flavour. Let the mixture simmer while you cook the pasta.

    # – Cook the tagliatelle according to instructions on the pack.

    # – A minute before the pasta should finish cooking, throw in fresh tomatoes into the sauce mixture.

    # – Pour in the drained pasta immediately. Mix till pasta are properly coated with the sauce.

    # – Spicy tuna and French bean tagliatelle, DONE!

    The BF really has a knack for conjuring up wonderful flavours, a skill that I have yet to master. Hopefully in the near future I’ll be able to simply throw some ingredients together and it can taste as good as this spicy tuna and French bean tagliatelle, hehe.
