Steaming cake in plastic container

I'm sure you've seen or even bought one of those chocolate cake with the chocolate cream topping before. If you noticed they are always sold in the "microwave safe" plastic containers. The presentation of the cake always makes me wonder, do they steam the cake in the plastic container itself or they do the steaming in a different baking/steaming tin or corning ware and transfer them into the plastic container after that.

My answer is answered 2 days ago when Wifey decided to steam her all time famous chocolate cake in the plastic container. She went to Giant to scout for the plastic container and as I've expected most of them are marked with "Microwave Safe" (warning?). There's one brand that has "Safe for Steaming" label on it and it does costs compared to the Microwave Safe type. And yes the Steaming Safe type is also Microwave Safe.

Too bad Wifey brought the label to the office. I don't know the brand and can't take the picture of the "Safe for Steaming". The one printed on the container itself only mentioned Microwave Safe, I would guess that it's because not every household has a steamer at home.

Isn't it dangerous to cook something in plastic container? Well if you google it up, you will find the term Dioxion (dioxin carcinogens) - cancer causing agents that is released when heating up plastics. There are arguements about it... some say its cancerous and some say its not. My friend Mama would say there's a conspiracy thoery behind it and there's always money involved. If its proven dangerous and why the government is allowing for all these microwave safe plastic containers to be sold in the first place. It's a tough world to live in.. so the best advice would be, "Tepuk dada tanya la selera".

Bila Ibu Datang Tolong

Last weekend I bought a toy for Arianna. So she spent the 2 days painting the picture frame with her Ibu. And this is what I managed to capture while Ibu is helping her painting the frame...

Happy Ramadhan 1430H

The ritual to break fast at the mother-in-law's house on the first dah of Puasa had to be postponed because the MIL is not around. We thought she would be back on the 2nd day of Puasa and I prepared Pandan Chicken. Unfortunately she will only be back at 9pm on the 2nd day of puasa... which is last night and this shows how bad my grammar is...

Anyway we decided to go on with the plan yesterday. We went to Cheras and visited Ceng's latest addition to the family. A cute litte boy named Hafiy (if I'm not mistaken). Below are the pictures on the "step by step" how to make Pandan Chicken, extracted from

Step 1: Prepare the pandan leaves.

Step 2: Prepare the pandan juice by blending the pandan leaves with some water.

Step 3: Peel off the skins of some garlic and ginger.

Step 4: Pound them with a pestle in a mortar.

Step 5: Prepare some coriander seeds, fennel seeds and chili powder.

Step 6: Blend them in a dry blender.

Step 7: Cut the chicken and put them in a marinating case.

Step 8: Pour the pandan juice into the ice cream tube.

Step 9: Pour in the blended dry herbs.

Step 10: Add in some chicken or beef curry powder.

Step 11: Wrap the chicken with some more pandan leaves.
Step 12: Deep fry them in super hot oil.
Step 13: Serve and eat for berbuka puasa.

Step 12 and 13 are not pictured because I am too hungry to grab the camera and snap the outcome. The grand-aunty commented that it need more spices.. I agree!

Extended Celebration

On Wifey's birthday, we had a small celebration at home. There are not many pretty pictures as Wifey was fasting that day. By the time we wanted to blow the candles, she was all serabai dan kelam kabut nak bukak puasa.

The next day, my parents treated Wifey for a birthday dinner at Delicious Bangsar Village II. Again it was for bukak puasa. :)
