Posted by mamabok | Cakes/Desserts | Sunday 22 June 2008 1:13 am




Of course.. we were late in buying a cake for Father’s day.. so we ended up with a pie.  We found this very unique.. lemon, lime and strawberry Meringue Pie at the local bakery.. and it was only at $3.99.  My in laws said it was pretty good.. but my FIL said.. it could do without the lime.  Muahhahaha!!

A closer look at the pie.

Pool Party & BBQ

Posted by mamabok | BBQ,Useful Tips,Western | Sunday 22 June 2008 12:58 am




Anyone who knows me.. knows that i am crazy about BBQ.  Having a pool party with BBQ  .. now that’s awesome..!  Not many people has a pool here.. because we don’t stay in a condominium, so when we were invited by a customer for a pool party.. we jumped at the chance to swim.. and eat junk food.  We took care of bringing lots of pool toys since they didn’t want us to bring any food nor wine. It was an awesome party.. !

What To Eat For Health..?

Posted by mamabok | Health,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Sunday 22 June 2008 12:51 am




An aunt was diagnosed with some illness  and since i love to eat. .and write up about food, my cousin had asked if i know of anything to eat, for her mother.  And since i wasn’t sure at all.. i wouldn’t dare recommend anything.. for it is never good to take anything without doing extensive research work.

Mocha Cubes

Posted by mamabok | Cakes/Desserts,Canadian | Thursday 19 June 2008 8:31 pm




These were like $4 .. but they are really good. Before we used to be able to get it at the bakery in Hebron.. but they sold their bakery.. and well.. now it is owned by someone else.. and the last time we tried it.. it was kinda disappointing.. and we haven’t been back since. So once in a while.. the local grocery store in town.. has it.. and i never fail to get some.. because the man loves it.. and so does my kid.

Crazy About Fruits

Posted by mamabok | Fruits | Tuesday 17 June 2008 9:48 pm




Told you i was crazy about fruits..! when i saw this at the local grocery store the other day.. my eyes literally light up .. with delight. With summer here.. fruits will be alot cheaper.. and guess what we can go to apple farm.. and get all these.. next to nothing.

More fruits.. and the reason why Apple farm gives us.. the fruits for not a penny .. because my MIL works there for her.. during her free time.. and they love our kid.

Lot at all these apricots..!! awesome..!!

Nectarine anyone..?

The Perfect Spa Experience

Posted by mamabok | Useful Links,Useful Tips | Tuesday 17 June 2008 9:47 pm




Hot tubs are no uncommon here, even my hair stylish has a hot tub just right outside her house.  I know she doesn’t use it very often, maybe it is because the neighbors are too near .. or perhaps the mood isn’t set correct.

When we first got out hot tub, we were quite excited about it.. but after a while, you kinda get used to having it there.. and you don’t make use of it so often.  Inviting friends over for a soak.. also dwindle with time.  Our hot tub soon became a white elephant until we went to Cuba for a vacation and we found that we were using the hot tub there .. everyday..  and it could be just about anytime of the day.

I came home thinking of all the good times .. we can have with our own hot tub .. and decided to get some  hot tub accessories like a scenery to blend with our garden where the hot tub is.  It is not only affordable but really simple to put together and you can even change scene as and when you want. And it doesn’t matter what size your tub is.. they are designed to fit your tub. You will be happy to know that it is waterproof, high durability and has high chemical resistance.  Making your hot tub into a resort like sanctuary is no longer a dream.  You can have your own resort right in your home.

My Obsession With Fruits

Posted by mamabok | Fruits | Monday 16 June 2008 2:55 am




Yes.. i loved fruits.. and even before coming to Canada.. i’ve always eaten alot of it. But over here.. fruits are expensive.. unless you get the apples.. but even the oranges here are ex. But cut fruits like these at $2.99 – 3.99 are sold in grocery stores around Canada. But because i am diabetic.. i don’t eat all at once, it is such a pity.. because i can eat fruits all day… without having any junk food. But sugar contents in these fruits are awfully high.. so instead of it being healthy .. it is actually not a good thing for me.

Food In Asia Versus Food In Canada

Posted by mamabok | Health,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Friday 13 June 2008 8:00 pm




At times .. i’m glad i am not living in Asia.. for i know i wouldn’t be able to resist all the good food there is to be found in Asia. Every corner .. every cuisine you want… is not only available.. but very affordable in Asia. If i were in Asia.. i bet i would have put on tonnes of weight by now. But in Canada.. there is hardly anything i want to eat here.. so there is no fear of overeating. You know who doesn’t need any Phentermine without a prescription eh.

Bigger Refrigerator

Posted by mamabok | Shopping,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Friday 13 June 2008 10:49 am




Looking out for a bigger refrigerator for our home is a must this year. We have been buying alot of chinese/asian food from the city this year. All thanks to our customers, friends and family members who had been up in the city and so kindly made a trip to the Asian Grocery store up there for me. We do already have a fridge and a freezer in the basement but our fridge is definitely way too small now. I saw one that I love and I’m sure you know that one can get the very best buy from www.bestbuy.com.

Dining Out

Posted by mamabok | General,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Thursday 12 June 2008 10:20 pm




Dining out has to slow down a bit this month because of the huge increase of patrol prices everywheres in the world.  With the car insurance that we pay for and now the raise in petrol, it certainly makes it out to drive all the way out of town.. just for a meal.  More home cooked meals I guess from now.

Lunch At Zeller’s Diner

Posted by mamabok | Canadian,Western | Wednesday 11 June 2008 2:45 pm




lasagne.JPG

We had lunch at Zeller’s Diner, I guess because it is called a diner.. they have the place decorated .. like the 60s diners .. or those on the highway in United States, it reminds me of the time i was in Anchorage… and on the highway back to the hotel and there were bikers all around the carpark of the diner. Anyways.. these was what we had last Sunday .. when we didn’t have to visit our in-laws.. because my MIL was up in the city .. watching RiverDance. This is my lasagne .. for like $8.50 ..?? can’t remember right now. Comes with salad and garlic bread. The lasagne was small eh.. and not that fantastic either.. and the Ceasar salad was really .. really dry.

fishandchips.JPG

The man had fish and chips/onion rings to share with the kid. It came with 3 pieces of fish .. and some onion rings and french fries. The cook was really nice.. and gave curly fries.. since we had a kid with us. The fish was really good.. for $8.99.

garlicbread1.JPG

And this was my garlic bread.. free of course.. but it suxs..! big time. But i’ll have to say.. that the service staff was great.. and the kid ate all her fish.. and that was most important to us.

Home Made Herb Chicken

Herb chicken .. home cooked and food from home. Thanks to Barbara who had sent me a huge bag of herbs and chinese stuff. It was awesome..! the herbal chicken .. turned out so well.. that even my kid who doesn’t eat alot of meat.. asked for more chicken.

herbchicken1.JPG

All ready for cooking now. I didn’t take a picture of it cooked.. because i had gone to run some errands.. and the man was the one.. who had finished steaming it for me. But it was wonderful tasting.. and i had put some wolfberries, mushrooms.. and wood fungus together into the chicken for steaming.

Housewarming & A Site Inspection

Posted by mamabok | Useful Links,Useful Tips | Wednesday 11 June 2008 12:20 am




We love being invited for housewarming parties because not only will the host be very generous where the foods are concerned but it’s fun to see how other people choose to decorate and what renovations they’ve done or plan to do.

These days exterior shutters seem to be the “in” thing, I’ve seen them in several housewarming parties that I had attended and they do really enhance the look of the whole house. They’re just so quaint and cozy. Now you can get vinyl shutters, or any kind of shutters as far as that goes, online. With the largest selection available online, ordering is safe and secure and very simple. On top of that they will be shipped directly to your home or business at no extra charge. How awesome is that!

Home Cooked Broccoli

broccoli.JPG

I love my vegies alot. And it is so easy to cook broccolis, in fact I can eat the whole thing that is on the frying pan. I honestly, feel that I am not getting enough vegies at all..for no on in the family loves broccolis at all.. so i end up eating everything.. lock, stock and barrel. Wish the spouse would learn how to eat some.. but nope..! and so silly eh..?? afterall .. broccoli are the best in all sorts of vitamins.

Food Blogger Needs To Stay Fit Too!

Posted by mamabok | Health,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Tuesday 10 June 2008 7:39 pm




As a food blogger, or a foodie as people like to call us, we love our food a lot. Sometimes we can’t help but try any food that has been recommended to us and our own special finds can be irresistible too.   It’s hard to just stop at one bowl or plate full. With a love for eating like I have, you can imagine how much exercise I have to do to burn off the calories and fats.

Some people take the lazy way out though and if I had a choice I’d probably consider  making a visit to Boston plastic surgery where Dr Min S. Ahn’s Aesthetic Wellness Center offers very comprehensive surgical and non-surgical solutions for weight loss and reconstruction. Enhancing one’s look and making one feel better for themselves is nothing to be ashamed of. With cutting edge techniques, Dr Min produces exceptional results with the work he does and those living in Boston will know that he is no stranger to the media. And he must do good work, because his clients come from all over the world to see him specifically.

Papaya

Posted by mamabok | Amusing/Bizarre,Fruits | Tuesday 10 June 2008 1:29 am




papaya.JPG

Can you guess how much this papaya cost..?? Yes.. ! quite a ridiculous price here as you can guess. Any tropical fruit that comes by here.. is expensive. I don’t even eat fresh pineapples no more.. for one cost as much as $5.99 Cdn.. if i am lucky. I eat can ones most times. And look how small the papaya is..!! yes.. my grandfather used to have it in his garden.. and they would rot. .because we couldn’t eat it fast enough. How sad eh..!! i haven’t had Papaya for 8.5 yrs now..!

Eclairs Are Cheap

Posted by mamabok | Cakes/Desserts,Canadian | Saturday 7 June 2008 10:12 pm




eclair.JPG

I keep saying the food is so expensive here.. but food like this huge eclair is really cheap. At $1.39 only.. this eclair would take me a few days to finish.. because i don’t like sweet stuff.. and secondly .. i’m diabetic. So back home I can get chicken rice for $2.50 but for a plate of chicken rice here.. it prolly cost me $10.00. Back home an eclair like this would prolly cost me $3.50 but here it is cheap.

Another closer look at all the fresh cream.. oozing out.. ! yums..!
