New Horlicks Chocolate


Mom’s Time Out

There’s an upcoming Lifetime production titled Mom’s Time Out! It is a social media experiment where 3 moms from Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines are send off on a 5-day getaway leaving the daddies taking charge of the family at home!!  Whoa…. this is really interesting….

 I’m really perked up and look forward to this as I’ve turned my schedule around this year where I goes off early to work right after dropping off my boy in school.  Get in early means getting out earlier so that I can then pick him up and then this is where my “2nd job” starts of fetching him to and from his evening classes.  Talk about stress!  Why are kids schedule like these nowadays?  All these just for him to be able to cope with his school work! This is also the reason why I’m pretty quiet this year in my blogging sphere….just no energy to stay up at night…

OK back to the topic on hand, Mom’s Time Out will be shown this coming Thursday, August 28th at 9pm on Lifetime Channel (Astro CH 709).  Be sure to tune in and catch it for I’m sure mom’s out there, you will at times wish to change role with the dad’s and see how well they cope and also to drive thru some solid points on how well they can handle their own kids!  Agree? ;)

Preview :

Besides the screening on Lifetime Channel (Astro CH 709), there’s a 2nd screen experience where you and me (yes! I’m gonna take part hehehe) can win a 3D2N stay at Angsana Lang Co in Vietnam!! woo-hoo!!

I’ve downloaded the app and let’s take part in the weekly discussion. We learn from each other kay?


New Scott Calorie Light Premium Towel – lesser calories!!

I had a sudden cravings for fried chicken.  Never get bored with it, what about you? But too much of fried stuff is not healthy especially when you see oil stuck to the food.

During my round of groceries, I spotted the New Scott Calorie Light Premium Towel which boost of superior oil absorbency where it can reduce calorie intake from fat (oil) found on the surface of food by up to 25%!! IN goes two rolls of these into my trolley.

I got the chance today to try the New Scott Calorie Light Premium Towel.  I made fried chickens for dinner :P  This is a simple marinating recipe that I got from my mum.  Most of the stuff are usually already available in your kitchen.

Recipe :

  • Chicken (whole chopped to bite sizes, drum sticks or wings – your choice)
  • Light Soya Sauce
  • Dark Soya Sauce
  • Pepper
  • Ginger Juice
  • Honey
  • Optional :  sprinkle some italian herbs

Method :

  • Wash and drain the chicken pieces.
  • Dab dry with Scott Premium Towel to rid of access water.
  • Marinate with light soya sauce, pepper, ginger juice and honey.  I add in a bit of dark soya sauce for colour.  Best to marinate for at least 3 hours.
  • Heat oil and once hot, fry till golden brown

Cleaned and wash chicken pieces

I used Scott Towel to “dry” my chicken as well.  Love that it doesn’t tear apart easily or get stucked to the chicken.

Marinate for at least 3 hours in order for the chicken meat to soak up the flavours.

Taa-daa fried chicken drumsticks sitting on Scott Towels where Scott Premium Towel soak up the excess oil.

Look at the amount of oil Scott Premium Towel soaked up!!  Ooh one thing to share is Scott Towel is also infused with green tea extract :D  an ingredient that is long known and used for fat reduction.

And now my ready to serve Fried Chicken Drumsticks.

 *rings the bell*


Try it out yourselves the next time you are frying something.  Scott Premium Towel is a great kitchen helper!

New Horlicks Chocolate

Knock! Knock! Who’s there?  - – - – It’s ME!

Yea I’m back again.  Work commitment really draining me out this year and it’s already mid of the year! Oohh my….  Anyway, I’m not here to talk about my work (a boring topic! :p).  I’m here to share with you about the new Horlicks Chocolate!

The compact 1kg pack

Having two growing up BOYS, preparing nutritious meals for them is a constant uphill battle for me.  Especially so for my elder boy Cavan.  He, unlike his younger brother who still consumes milk, I sometimes find it hard to “innovate” or entice nutritious food for him.

He was a chubby baby until he outgrew all his baby fat and developed into a kid and start going to school, he became thin.  Runs in the genes I tell you for his dad is also very skinny until his 30s where you see “development” starts! hehehe….  So yea rice is not his staple to add on and it’s really tough ensuring he has all the nutrients he need.  Hidden hunger the term used is not hunger that comes from lack of food but a chronic lack of vitamins and minerals that has no visible warning signs.  Not taken care properly it will lead to poor mental development, poor physical health and productivity.

Thus when I found out that Horlicks came out with a new and improved formulation of its classic malt beverage by enriching its existing formula with a blend of micronutrients to help optimise holistic development in children, I’m a happy mama! :P  The best part I like is, it comes with 23 vital nutrients including calcium, protein and multivitamins to support their need for growth and development!

Horlicks is a household name in my family and I’m no stranger to it.  Have been drinking Horlicks since I was young :D  Am glad to see that Horlicks now comes in chocolate flavour, a perfect flavour to entice if not Cavan, my younger boy Caden for that boy is a chocolate lover!

Got ourselves a pack of Horlicks Chocolate and tried it out.

Always love making hot drinks at home

Instead of just mixing the Horlicks Chocolate with hot water, made it a bit more interesting by making a Horlicks “tarik” without the mess on the floor

And taa-daa, a lovely foamy cup of Horlicks “tarik”

It’s hot, so gulp down slowly and verdict…….

GOOD!!  Even love the moustache on his lips lol

So yea now before sending him off to school, Cavan will have a cup of Horlicks Chocolate.  I’m assured he get his nutrients and at night if he’s hungry and it’s too late to have anything solid, another cup of Horlicks Chocolate :D

Afterall both mum and kids alike would want to Tall, Sharp and Strong!
