The haze situation finally eased a little in KL. Today we no longer smell acrid smog. I finally saw a few speckles of faint white clouds and a few splashes of pale blue and peach colors emerging from behind the grey hazy skies when I did my exercise at 6:30 this morning! Things like white clouds and blue skies, something that we’ve always taken for granted are now a sight to behold and put a smile on my face this morning 😊
But it’s still sizzling hot and humid here. These days I need at least 4 – 5 rounds of shower a day and 3 fans blowing at me when I’m working at my desk and I’m not exaggerating. I’m just a hottie. I mean I get hot and sweat really easily 😅
Dinner today is chicken stew with a glorious kaleidoscope of colours and textures. I started to cook at 2:45 p.m. so that dinner will be ready by the time my 2 hungry piranhas come back from school at 4 p.m.
I love putting loads of colorful vegetables into my stew. The kids can devour on drumsticks and I’ll be happy with just half a drumstick and lots of my favorite vegetables and tubers.
8 chicken drumsticks and 2 ribs
2 purple sweet potatoes
1/2 yellow zucchini
1/2 green zucchini
1 packet Enoki mushroom
A wedge of Japanese pumpkin
3 large onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Handful of bay leaves
1 cinnamon bark
Most of the ingredients are organic, including the chicken.
Organic soy sauce
1 tablespoon Lakanto sugar
1 teaspoon organic dark soy sauce
Italian herbs or any herbs of your preference
The hungry piranha attacked the stew the moment she came back from school at 4pm.
And sprinkled mozzarella on her rice + stew. What kind of combo is that?!
I kept these for Sherilyn and the fussy king who will only be back for dinner at 7-ish p.m. and 9-ish p.m. respectively.
After her early dinner, Cass started ‘work’. I paid her RM10 to help me fix a rack that I ordered online from Shopee. I should have only given her RM5 as I’d already fixed it half way and didn’t have the time to complete it.

By the way, I am so proud of myself that I managed to fix an Ikea garment rack all by myself this afternoon! For someone who sucks at fixing DIY stuff, with zero training in RBT or Kemahiran Hidup (Living Skills) in school as I was in the Science Stream, I aced it so well this time. The rack ain’t wobbly this time and I managed to install it in under an hour, albeit drenched in sweat and needed another shower after the job was done! 😬
