Chocolate Turon

I made dessert last Sunday. This dessert is a common street food in the Philippines and it is called Turon. This is a chocolate version of the turon.

The picture attached, I know, doesnt look appetising - oily n soggy, but seriously it is heavenly. Even my angel almost wallop half of what I made. I didnt hv the big spring roll wrapper and my bananas were overripe. I will definitely try my hands at this again. I will just need to get the right size for the spring roll wrapper and bananas should be just ripe! Try making this Chocolate Turon. I am sure you'll like it!


4 ripe bananas
8 spring roll wrappers
1/2 cup semi sweet choc chips
oil for frying


Slice bananas into half crosswise then half each piece lengthwise.
Place one half of banana flat side up on a spring roll wrapper.
Arrange a layer of choc chips to the surface of banana.
Cover choc chips with other half and wrap as in a spring roll.
Repeat for the rest of bananas.
Heal oil in a pan and fry spring rolls till golden in colour.
Drain oil in paper towel.

For Sunday's lunch, since there were leftover roasted chicken - mainly the breasts, from Saturday's "lunner", I thought hey why not make Chicken Wrap. I had all the ingredients needed except for tomatoes to make the Chicken Wrap. Here it is the pic and recipe.


cooked chicken, shredded
onions, sliced
lettuce, shredded
mazorella cheese, shredded
chilli sauce


Spread some mayonnaise on the bread.
Fill with chicken, onions and lots of lettuce.
Then sprinkle some mazorella cheese.
Fold the bread into 2 and toast it on a pan or put it in a preheated oven till the cheese melts.

Serve drizzled with chilli sauce.

I also made a dessert for Sunday's lunch which I will share tomorrow. Check out this space again yah!

Ingredients (Batter)

2 cups flour
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups water
1 egg

It's Been a While

Whoa .. it's been a while .. almost 2 weeks since I last updated my blog. I have been bz with work and two weeks ago I also attended a workshop called Writing Back by Ron Kaufman.

I also took leave last Wed and Thur just to unwind. Initial plan was to go on a short trip to Penang but hubby couldnt take leave. So I went for a self indulgence trip instead in urban Singapore - spa treatment and shopping. Hubby also managed to take half day leave last Thursday so we ate lunch at Straits Kitchen @ Grand Hyatt. Chef Wan, a Malaysian celebrity and chef was there and we managed to take a pic with him.

He is soooooo friendly. Really no air. What you see on TV is exactly the same what you see outside TV. Just one disappointment though - I wanted to get his cookbook with his autograph but unfortunately it was sold out.

Last Saturday, my buddies and I went for a Chocolate Therapy class where we learnt about chocolate, how it was made and stuff and also did some hands on, making Choc Nibblers, Rocher and Knackerli. After the therapy my buddies and I went shopping at Giant, Bedok and then went to my house to cook a lil something.

I've got to go now. Will update more on food in the days to come yah ie the recipes and the pix as well .. dat I promise!

Chapati and Keema

I prepared Indian food for dinner yesterday - Chapati and Keema. Actually mum prepared part of the ingredients for me as I do not have the slightest idea of how to cook Keema. Mum then explained to me the other ingredients that I need to prepare and how to cook them.

As for the chapati, I bought them frozen from the supermarket. Just need to heat it up on a non stick pan for a few minutes and it is ready to eat.

Thanks mum for the great Keema recipe!

Pig Out, Chill Out & Let Out!

My buddies and I decided to meet up at the eleventh hour yesterday just to "chill out". We planned to meet at Bedok MRT. They had to wait a long time before I arrive as I had to fetch the kids home before going out to meet them. My buddies were expecting me to drive but the rain had dampened my confidence to drive and I took a cab instead.

We settled for MacDonald's Cafe, East Coast. With the Extra Value Meals, upsize mind you, and sides like corn and apple pies, the 3 of us really "pig out".

We also had our after meal of Chocobanana Cake and Double Choc Frappe.

So while having our after meal, we actually "let out" almost about anything and everything - from work to our own personal lives to marriage lives to other people's lives, etc.

We left the place at 11pm feeling lighter really .. a load off our chest.

To my budddies - U gerls know wat?? We should do this again and I mean it .. ;-)
