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!

Saujana Ramadhan Feast Under the Stars

It’s the time of the month where every evening you see crowds gather at bazaar for Buka Puasa.  Yeah the Holy Month of Ramadhan is drawing near! :)

It’s been quite sometime since I went for a review and it feels good to be back on scene hahaha… Alas due to work and family commitment I can’t participate as much as I like too.  Alright back to what I’m supposed to share.  I went back to The Saujana Hotel to Feast under the Stars.

Stalls set-up in the outdoor area.  It’s always nice to dine al-fresco style when the weather is good.  And as the sky gets dark, it’s really lovely enjoying the cool breeze and star gazing while tucking in to yummy spread of food!! :P

Ohh there’s a traditional Ghazal musicians to add on to the evening’s enchantment serenading you the whole night away.

I never get bored with The Saujana Hotel’s spread.  Using the finest ingredients, the starter itself – Ulams has a wide variety. My usual pick would be the Kerabu Mangga Muda and a few pieces of lemang pulut ketupat with my favourite serunding daging.  Ohh thinking of it makes me salivate!

I’m a soup lover and always love soup laced with spices.  So I headed over to the station and got myself a bowl of Soup Tulang Gear Box!  Love how tender the meat was.  It was not too heavy with spice, the amount is just right!

Another common item during Ramadhan is the Bubur Lambuk.  Frankly I heard of this for years but never got the chance to try it myself.  Either it’s there and I missed it or too full by the end to try.  Thus this year I make it a point that that’s the first for me to try before I go on sampling other food.

Verdict :  Love it, super love it.  Already a porridge lover, this definitely add on to my list of must have first when I come across Bubur Lambuk.

The spread for main dishes is good.  From Ketam Masak Lemak Chili Padi, Gulai Masam Ikan Tenggiri with Terung Hijau to your usual daging rendang, I’m really spoilt for choice.  By the time I go round just scooping a spoonful of each, my platter is oozing with food!

Besides this, another attraction is the Whole Roasted Lamb which is so tender that I went for second round! ssshhhh….. There’s also a station where you get succulent grill items such as satay, fishes, ayam kolok etc…  Looking for something more local like roti canai, roti jala or murtabak?  You’ll find it in the spread as well.

Feeling quite full already but it does not deter me to check out the dessert stalls.  Lovely assortment.  Some are unique to the eyes.

I always love fresh fruits and when I saw this stall …….

I went ga-ga and couldn’t help but spent quite a long time here taking my time choosing and picking the fruits I want.  I feel like I’m having a fruits buffet.

Tantalise you yet?  Ramadhan is just around the corner.  Think no more and start your bookings.  Price for adults per person at RM115++ and child (age 6-12 years) at RM57.50++

It”s great to gather family and friends alike to just Feast Under The Stars.
