Today is my 46th birthday, and to my surprise I saw a bento box on my side table. My children have made me a bento box which I believe is filled with love.
Usually the children wakes up late during school holidays, but it seems today was different for them.

Though it was a simple bento, but it is the thought that count.
Nobody ever made bento for me and this is my 1st bento!

I was told by my ling that the children made STAR SHAPE BREAD represents that mum is the SUPER STAR TODAY! Wooh, today I really did felt like a super star! Keep it up children! Mum is looking forward many more super star days to come. :)

Scallop Abalone Chicken Soup

Today my eldest child, Wannie, had her last paper in the SPM exam 2009. Oh what a relief ,for her as well as the family. For being the mother it's just as stressful seeing her going through that three weeks period. She was literally stretched out, physically and mentally. The timing was all wrong, her monthly p......, caught a fever from me and having rashers all over her body at the same time. Concerned , and consulted the elders, I was told that her body is weak. All I need to do is nourishes her back to health. Well I remembered having this particular soup cooked by mother. It's called Scallop Abalone Chicken Soup.A simple no fuss cooking process. Put two pieces of chicken together with three slices of dried abalone, four dried scallops into steam pot. Add 1 1/2 cups of water, some gogiberry and salt to taste. Double boil for five hours. I'm pretty sure you will like don't need to wait till you're sick before you try this recipe !
