First Wedding Anniversary at Pidgin

Just how time flies. 13th February 2014, the most important day in my life.

Being together for 5 years, I am truly blessed with all the love and support from W. He have been the pillar of strength in times of need. It have been a truly blessed journey with him although our journey wasn’t the easiest.

We had a simple dinner at Pidgin Kitchen & Bar after work and it was fantastic! The fusion of food served enticed our taste buds, especially the Quail Egg Maguro Mix and Uni Angel Hair Pasta! ♥14948_10152772030497746_3566404363772341255_n

My Weekends

“Happiness is when everyone enjoy your food & bakes!”

You won’t need an oven or any baking skills for this no-bake cheesecake! Really glad to have done this Matcha Pistachio Tofu Cheesecake recipe! Everyone loves the texture of the cake and the taste! The whole family enjoys it, even my extended relatives. Light, smooth and yummy! Feeling proud really! This is the first time I did it.

Ingredients (8 slices):

Tofu Cheesecake

  • 300g Unicurd silken tofu
  • 250g Philadelphia Cream cheese
  • 15g gelatin powder
  • 50ml water
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 200g plain yoghurt
  • 50ml of Anlene Concentrate milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Biscuit Base

  • 200g Mcvities digestive biscuits
  • 80g melted butter

Matcha Pistachio Topping

  • 20g matcha powder
  • 80g crushed salted pistachios

Originated Recipe from: Shiberty.com 

I did certain changes to the original recipe and opted in for a healthier choice! Cause being healthy is in me! 🙂 And I do foresee myself doing this more often and serving to my friends too! I enjoy seeing people eating & enjoying it! Heh.

Tofu cheesecake is especially light on the taste buds and healthy as compared to conventional cheesecakes! Cause, personally I am not a sweet tooth person and I don’t fancy cakes. This time round, I’m in love! Light texture and extreme load of calcium in it! I enjoy it especially with my McVities biscuits!

Directions:

  1. Line a removable base baking pan (8″ round size) with baking paper.
  2. Crush the digestive biscuits into fine crumbs and combine with melted butter.
  3. Press tightly into cake pan and leave baking pan in the freezer until required later.
  4. Dissolve and stir gelatin powder in warm water. Set aside for use later.
  5. Empty the rest of tofu cheesecake filling ingredients into an electrix mixer, and mix until well combined, around 1 minute. Add the dissolved gelatin at the end, stirring thoroughly.
  6. Remove baking pan from the freezer. Pour your tofu cheesecake mixture into the pan.
  7. Sprinkle the top generously with matcha powder and pistachios.
  8. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or until firm to the touch, when it doesn’t wobble too much when you shake the pan.

I think this is one of my favourite cake ever! Mixing it with matcha & pistachios are really optional. You can mix it with passion fruit juice too! It’s really up to you.

The evidence of clearance!! Haha! I just made it yesterday, so fast! Purposely left a small bit to show that it’s my cake!

Happy and satisfied that people around do appreciate and love what I do for them. Probably, this is the best way for me to show how much I love them.

Other than baking, I enjoy cooking too! Made dinner for the family & Wayne. Trying out the new Hong Kong noodles with a fusion of Malaysian minced pork style! I think Wayne is a lucky man! Thou he is a better cook than me, I tend to spent more time on cooking than him.

I even told him I wanted to be a housewife! Heh! Just saying.

Even today’s breakfast. Healthy organic milk, button mushrooms, cheese and eggs!

They belong to the weekends, aren’t they? In house brunch isn’t a bad idea too, save money and can add a lot more ingredients whenever I want! Yay! Refusing to spent my money on cafes, cause it is tad too much of expenses!

The journey towards healthy lifestyle

Keeping fit and healthy has always been my dream. The desire for beauty. 

To start a healthy lifestyle, the hardest thing was to change.This includes your everyday habits, the choices of food and to include an exercise regime! The adoption of good food into your diet requires a time frame; those buds need some time to switch! A good gauge would be the living food and dead food comparison! Imagine yourself in the crossroad, choosing a route that would lead you to live and die. Applying this to food, it’s what you choose to put in your mouth that causes you to live longer or to die faster.


Make your choice.

Looking at all those old photos, 2 years back. I felt myself gorging my body with bad food and took my body for granted. I’m undernourished, over fat and overweight. This is the saddest thing to do. Everyone wants to enjoy life, but eating bad food doesn’t make you ‘enjoy’ more. Having more knowledge for health and wellness helped me to change the way I think and feel. Love your body, and it would then work the way you want it too. Good food is all about making choices. Decide what your body need, not want.

Joining a fitness club had turned my life around. I made exercise my best friend. Having the same goal, my gym buds have been the pillar of my consistency. (You know who you are & I love you!) It is vitally important to find GOOD gyming buds, they make you or break you! Positive peer influence will make you stronger, but negative ones only make you weaker or stagnant.

Before:

NOW!


I’m glad I’m walking towards it, you should too!
