Creamy Broccoli Soup - Good for Pregnant and/or Breastfeeding Mommies

Since it is a Sunday and we got tired of eating out, I've decided to cook dinner tonight. We still have four chicken drumstick left in the freezer and some frozen tiger prawns bought back from our holiday in Kota Kinabalu. The drumstick are baked with peanut butter and potato chips while the tiger prawns are simply baked with butter and garlic.
Our meals are never complete without a soup. Went online to search and came across this recipe, Creamy Broccoli Soup. Apparently, this soup is an excellent dish for pregnant and breastfeeding mommies since broccoli is rich with frolic acid. And the soup is relatively easy to prepare.
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 crowns of broccoli, chopped
  • chicken broth
  • skim milk
  • ground black pepper to taste


  • Boil onion, carrot, celery, garlic and chicken broth in a large soup pot. Add pepper to taste
  • Add broccoli and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender
  • Allow the soup to cool and transfer soup into blender. Add in milk and blend until smooth.
  • Transfer blended soup back into pot and reheat the mixture slowly until heated through.
  • Serve hot.

We found a old malaysia flag and gave it to him over the weekend. As he was waving it around, we were teaching him to shout "MERDEKA!". After a few rounds of us shouting excitedly, suddenly, without realising it, he was waving the flag and was shouting "KAAAA....!!" " KAAAAA...!!!" What a hilarious time we had seeing him running around the house with the little flag and shouting "KAAAA....!!!!"

Starting them young to love the country...hahaha

Ryan's first car wash!

He enjoys anything to do with water. He has a natural affinity for water and is totally at ease and at home when he is in the pool. He will purposely dip his head into the water and comes up laughing and giggling.
Since my car was rather dirty 2 days ago and I had to fetch a client yesterday for an appointment, I have asked the maid to give my car a wash. And since it was a hot hot afternoon, I passed the water hose to Ryan and boy, did he have a field day. He was happily spraying water all over the place and left no part of the car dried (even after kakak has wiped).
But getting him to stop was a nightmare as he was enjoying it too much that he just refused to stop and was screaming at the top of his lungs when he took to water hose from him. He even refused to let the maid to give him his bath and insisted that he wanted me because it is the maid who took the water hose from him. He was just angry with her!!
