Put all the stress away, December is the month of feeling loved. Weddings, weddings, weddings and Christmas holidays. 

Cousin sis Cecillia and Athena's Uncle, my Brother-in-Law Stevo, both were married on this good day on 11.12.2017.

followed by the loooooong awaited #IvanLing121314 yesterday.

Celebrating love with family and friends. Seems easy but tough at the same time when you need to take care of many parties and it is definitely not a-two-persons-matter. Many considerations and comments on many things but what is most important is still the love between the lovebirds, dealing with all these together as one. 

Theme for the Love is WHITE

Sin said this is tough for a contractor. Hahaha.
Well, it is not easy for me either. I'm always a top with jeans kinda person, so when it comes to dinners that need me to dress up.. i will start to get panic. hahaha.. 

So.. how do we get to know each other? 

I got to know Hui Ling through Sin and I know Ivan in LUF, the guy who used to throw weight outside Studio... hahahahaha.. I'm just kidding. I don't mean to get you into trouble Ivan. 

From then on, we went outings together. 

On Malaysia Day 2012..

I have more photos to share, of us getting married and of us having Athena.. but I just couldn't find the photos now.. so maybe next time..

and their love stories continue.. please browse through their albums in facebook. Hahahaha..

It is our honor and pleasure to be invited to their special evening with friends. Thank you for inviting IvanLing 💕

Us, arriving early before 6pm. 
and we only can do this selfie/wefie thing when Athena is not with us. Hahaha. 

So, the next question is, where is Athena? Why didn't we bring her to the dinner?

It took us quite sometimes to think whether we should bring that little girl with us. We struggled for days when Ivan and Ling said see the 3 of us on their big day. Unsure of the place in Bla Bla Bla, we ended up abandoned her with my sis. Sis offered to take care of her and we can go to the dinner ourselves. 

Bride of the day behind Bla Bla Bla, making sure everything is in order. 
Hello there Hui Lingggg.. finally got to see you after so loooongggg.. the last was at Gym Box?? 👀

The pros of arriving early.. you get to snap a few photos before others. It has been a while since I last did this. Please pardon my photos. 

This is yummeh !!!

Beautiful decorations.. 

and we managed to selfie with the couple.. hahaha.. 

IvanLing called this "Donation Box" 😂😂😂

Looks simple but I'm sure they put in lots of efforts to make them so presentable.

Bride with the schoolmates. 

Cozy place.. 

Bla Bla Bla, a place that every Kuchingite knows, every tourist wanted to try it out. 

Another wedding venue in Kuching for you to consider if hotels and restaurants are fully booked. 
Beautiful lightings with unique backdrops and minimal self-decorations needed because the place is already very nice. If added more efforts, like IvanLing.. it became a more atas place. Even more beautiful than hiring event planner to decor. Hahaha.. #JustSaying

and for #IvanLing121314, we wish you the way your hashtag means.. IvanLingWantTo1314 and we are sure both of you will 1314 with more of your minis coming up. Stay loving and keep in touch, at least in our Jogja groupchat. Hahaha..

How To Cook Rice with Thermomix?

Hello December 2017 💗

How have you all been? It has really been a while since I last came into my own blog until I need to find a Thermomix Recipe I once posted. Very grateful for the invention of blog.

Today, I brought my Thermomix to office and I wanted to cook rice with minimal effort. So, I googled many recipes and many showed How To Cook Rice with Thermomix TM5 instead of TM31.

Mine is the older version and many online recipes are for TM5. So, here's one of the many recipes I found online on How To Cook Rice with TM31. Haha..


200g Bario Rice ( I read online that Basmati Rice is also using the same recipe. Will try that next time)
900g Water ( I mixed 650g of Hot Water with 250g of Tap Water)

My Methods:-

Put in Simmering Basket and measure the amount of rice you want to cook. In this case, I only use 200g Rice. You can put in more but I read the max you can put is 400g. I have never tried. So I think to be safe, you put in 300g and see how is the outcome before you try 400g.

Take out the Simmering Basket and Wash the rice with water tap. Then put the basket back in TM bowl. Reset the scale and pour water into the TM bowl.

Set 15 mins, Varoma, Speed 4 

and Taaadaaaahhh !!!

Happy Rice-ing... I mean Thermomixing .. haha..
