Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish, yet quite versatile to be used in making various delicious and healthy dishes. By adding some Kimchi in soup, it helps to create a depth of flavours, and the whole dish becomes very appetizing.

I often like using watercress to make Chinese long-boiled soup (老火湯). Watercress and monk fruit soup is one of my favourites. It’s both comforting and nourishing.


To make watercress soup, if not doing it right, it tastes bitter. Some of my readers asked me if I have any tips on removing the bitterness of watercress soup. Yes, I have.

My mother-in-law, an expert of making watercress soup, once taught me her trick of how to make watercress soup without bitterness.

Tomato Chilli Prawns (Chinese New Year)

by · 10 comments
There are many traditional dishes cooked during the Chinese New Year season. Many Chinese families like to cook prawns/shrimps, as the pronunciation of prawns in Cantonese is “ha” – much like “laughter”, that is associated with the idea of happiness and joy.

So prawns have been a must-have on a traditional Chinese New Year celebration menu.

Tomato Chilli Prawns01

My mum used to make a very simple and quick dish, stir-fried prawns with tomato sauce or ketchup that I love the most. Based on my mum’s cooking way, I tweaked it a bit by adding an amazing kick to this dish with Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, since my kid has grown up, getting love to have hot foods more and more.

If you have young kids at home, you just skip the chilli sauce, or vice versa, add more if you want it hot to your liking.

Hope all of you a happy New Year!

When I first moved into Australia, I could ask for chicken feet for free from supermarkets because most Australian didn’t like chicken feet. So the staff would throw them away. They’re so glad that if you asked and would give you a large packet. Now a small amount of chicken feet costs quite expensive instead.
