How to make a Gigantic MineCraft Coal Cookie



C is still into Minecraft. Remember my failed attempt at making the Minecraft popsicle pigs? C is asking for something Minecraft again. Again, I turned to my trusted ‘Nerdy Mummies‘ on YouTube for ideas.


Read on to see how we made our gigantic Minecraft Coal Cookie.

Our very own barista


This is a follow up entry on my ‘Looking at a way to combine conversation with artsy-kids?‘ which looked at at my son using his drawing skills to as assist with his conversational skills.

We have assembled the coffee machine and he is our appointed barista whenever we want a cup of Dolce Gusto coffee. Is it easy to use? Read on and find out…

What does the swollen panda and fruit face have in common?

My eyes are as swollen as these apples.
My eyes are as swollen as these apples.

They’re both in need of a detox. 😮

Recently, I truly understood the meaning of two is company,three’s a crowd.

After the road accident and C’s fall, I was hit with swollen watery eyes and red itchy bumps. The doctor thinks I ate fish that was fried in ‘dirty’ oil, and recommended I rest my eyes and try to eat more healthy food.

One of the things I did was to make juice.

Sorry for the caption. Initially I wanted to use this montage for my 100th likes. I wanted to redo the montage but realised I lost some of the photos when I changed to a new mobile phone.

Ingredients needed:

  1. Two apples
  2. One stick of carrot
  3. One squeeze or two of honey
  4. Whole lemon or a few squeeze for those who don’t like sour stuff
  5. 80ml of water

I got this recipe online which says drinking this can help to detox one’s body. Since the doctor said I ate food cooked in ‘dirty’ oil, I thought it might help to detox the body a bit.

You just need to cut up the apples and carrot and drop them into the blender. C measured and added the water and honey for me. I tried to get him to squeeze the lemon using a lemon squeezer but I think it was too difficult for him. I drank this once a day for seven days. My eyes did clear up and I feel cleaner and lighter. Will I drink this everyday? I think I might if it came pre-made. 😮 C gets really excited when he gets to squeeze the bear honey for me. And I enjoy doing things with him before the school reopens. C is willing to drink my detox juice without the full lemon. So what I did was to just dash a bit of lemon juice, pour half a cup for him, then pour in the remaining lemon juice and finish up the rest between hubby and me.

What’s your detox recipe?






Mummy, what happened to my pigs?

For the longest of time, C has been asking to do something related to Minecraft. I was watching Nerdy mummies and came across an episode where she did the above Minecraft pop sticks (You may watch the video here.)

I went to the local bakery store, Phoon Huat, to purchase all the necessary items. For budding bakers or season bakers, Phoon Huat really is your one-stop shopping place for all your baking needs. You can order online but I prefer to immerse myself with all those baking goodies. They even offer baking courses if you’re ever keen to jump on the wagon to learn how to bake.

Funny moments: The Misunderstood Fruit

We all know fruits provide us with a lot of vitamins and minerals. As parents of young kids, when we purchase certain fruits, we would cut them up into smaller pieces so that it will be easier for our toddlers to eat. My dear C has been eating papaya since nine months old as papayas are known to assist in the digestive system and it’s soft and mushy texture makes it easy to swallow. Unripe papaya cooked with fish as a soup is also an awesome soup dish.
