3rd Lock&Lock Box!

The end of Christmas doesn’t mean no more presents, today I received our third box from Lock&Lock! This time, the box consisted of three useful containers, all three of which were put to use almost immediately. The first is a light pink Easy & Simple square container. We previously received a set of three EZ … Continue reading

First Meal – Egg-fried Rice

Today marks the first meal cooked in our new home. We moved into our new apartment on Jan 2nd. People have different ways of christening a new apartment. I’m not sure how others do it, but for me, I cook. I am a believer that a home isn’t a home unless at least one meal … Continue reading

Hello Bebe Stainless Steel Set

I recently received a set of Hello Bebe stainless steel bowls from Lock&Lock, and yes, I know they are for baby feeding purposes. But they are sooooooo cute! I simply couldn’t resist using them. As it turns out, we recently packed all our breakables into boxes for our year-end move. I’m paranoid about our porcelain … Continue reading

Lock&Lock EZ Lock containers

I’ve previously talked a lot about how I love Lock&Lock’s Boroseal Glass Containers. I love their design, the fact that they are glass and how safe they make me feel microwaving my food in them. Recently, I received the Lock&Lock EZ Lock Pastel Round Pink set, which is a plastic set of containers, also from … Continue reading

Fall is my favorite season of the year, with winter running a close second. In fact, sometimes the two switch places, they regularly vie for the top spot in my heart. Perhaps it’s because I grew up in a tropical island, the colder months of the year has always been my favorites. The crispness in … Continue reading

Tea-Leaf Eggs

Today, I’m sharing a material comfort that’s very dear to the husband’s heart – food! Heh. There’s not much the husband and I agree on when it comes to material goods, but food is definitely one. So, during the week, I had a hankering for tea-leaf eggs. This craving comes not too often, but whenever … Continue reading

I recently applied to participate in LocknLock’s Supporters Program and was fortunate to be chosen. And this week, we received our first LocknLock’s Box! I was very excited to see the big box waiting for me when I got home. The box was so huge the husband decided to keep it for future use. And … Continue reading

Lock&Lock glass containers

  Being a cook to two people that really eat very little AND being a cook with a tendency to overcook usually means needing tons of storage containers. I usually depend on my Tupperware containers for easy and airtight storage, but I recently read about Lock&Lock containers on the web and I liked the idea … Continue reading

Magic Shoe-Mops

  So the husband and I split most of the house chores. We have a very clear idea of who does what. I cook and he washes the dishes. He cleans the shower while I take care of the toilet bowl. He vacuums the carpet and I mop the floor. I enjoy the cooking and … Continue reading
