Corn Muffin

For some reason, my husband loves corn muffin (especially that of a certain fast food variety). So the other day, I decided to make some at home. It was not the same recipe as the ones you may find at that certain fast food joint but it came out nice. The verdict: the husband loves it as he said the ones baked at home are less sugary - which in turn is suitable for us who aspires to eat a more healthy diet.


275g self-rising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
1 tin cream corn
100 g brown sugar
50 g castor sugar
1 egg
50 ml fresh milk
75g butter


Preheat the oven 180 C
Line a muffin tray
Add salt and bicarbinate of soda to the self raising flour
Melt butter and side a side
Combine brown sugar, castor sugar , egg, fresh milk and melted butter
Mix the texture with cream corn
Add this to the flour and stir gently until the texture rather like batter in consistency.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and bake .

Muffins are easy to make because they need a little mixing. Best eaten when it's still warm.

Love Notes from My Daughters!

I almost forgot about this whole Mother's Day thingy until the husband and daughters treated me to a dinner last Saturday night. That's because I am truly blessed with three amazing beautiful daughters so much so that to me, everyday is already a Mother's Day.

I wish for nothing but happiness for my three angels. And I could have not ask for anything else as the joy that they brought me everyday are simply phenomenally satisfying!!

As we normally don't really celebrate Mother's Day, it still came as a surprise that Alia, Asma and Arissa created hand-made Mother's Day card for me (no wonder they were huddling in their room this morning). And that means a world to me!!!!

From Alia:
Happy Mother's Day, Mere (apparently this is how the French call their Mak!!! hahaha ) Thank You for being so caring and supportive and always be there when I need you. For that I love you more than ever. Sorry, if I am not the world's greatest daughter, but I try to be nice Sorry, if I did not turn out to be a genius many parents wish upon their kids. Sorry, if I don't really like Science and Maths, but I do love other stuff. Last but not least, thank you for being the greatest mother in this whole wide world

From Asma:
Happy Mother's Day, Mak No matter how many time I disappoint you, I will make you proud, eventually. I will make sure that your pretty smile will always stays on your pretty face.

From Arissa:
Happy Mother's Day, Okasan (this is in Japanese) You are chibi!!! (Chibi is cute in Japanese)

Thanks my daughters (I didn't know I have a French, Malay and Japanese as daughters today, but I'm still happy...hahahaha)
