Mother's Day Treat

Hope it's not too late to share about this photo taken on the night before Mother's Day. This yummy home-baked chicken is my husband's best recipe ever - Thai Basil Oven Baked Chicken. Very simple and homely, he cleaned and marinated the whole chicken with Masterfood Thai Basil marinate available from Coles or Safeway, for about few hours. And then used the baking tube specialised for chicken (I wish I know what it is called) to make the chicken "stand up" in the middle. Spread the remaining marinate, and to make it more crispy, you may brush some virgin oil onto the chicken. Baked for about 1/2 hour, and then turned to the other side of chicken for another 1/2 hour. I love it especially the chicken breast which is not dry but juicy and delicious!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!! To all the mothers (including myself..:p)!! Would love to hear how will you celebrate this special moment tomorrow. We currently have no special plan as yet but I remember last year my hubby was very kind enough to do ALL the housework and looking after my little boy, as well as cooking. We had a nice lunch at home and wonderful eat out dinner. The year before was the first Mother's Day for me and my boy was only about 2 weeks old, we had a small celebration with my mom-in-law who was kind enough to fly from overseas to look after me after giving birth. It was a great moment to be remembered forever.

My little brooch featuring kawaii mommy with her baby is a good theme for Mother's Day, I think. It is featured in Missy Mao Mao's blog in her Mother's Day Collection. Great bags created by her, so tempted!!!!

It is going to be a girl!!

Yes! Excited! Excited! Excited! It is going to be a girl. This is my first time breaking the news of my second pregnancy. I have waited the day of my baby ultrasound scanning and yes everything went fine and as I have expected, she was in a bad position for the doctor to find out the gender. However I have a confirmation from her that it would be 99% girl. hehe...I am not picky, but it will be lots of fun to have a daughter to dress her up....:p. When doctor was doing the scanning, the baby showed me her thumbs up on one hand and victory sign with two fingers up on the other hand. Seems like telling me: Yes! Mommy, I am doing well here.....:)

Lots of shopping to do soon......:)
