    here's how the packaging & homemade items looks like

    Currently have 5 types of homemade, ready-to-cook items! All come in nice packaging, seals for hygiene can keep a long time in the freezer but once open need to consume fast within 5 days bcoz no preservatives!

    The box packaging is very cute! I like it very much. So stylish when the delivery comes.

    Big pork meatballs (3 types to choose from) 15pcs for rm21.90?
    if u calculate it's only 1.46 each ball
    cheaper than Family Mart oden

    Here I show u each type of meat I tried after cooking 😃

    Their meatballs are big, fresh, and no borax but still can boing-boing 😱 Highly recommend trying the cuttlefish meatball 🦑 as it has cuttlefish bits in the pork meatball so delicious 😋  


    They have two kinds of soups, u can make a bowl of noodles or as hot pot. 1 pack is 500ml, which is enough for 1 hot pot. You can dilute with water for a bigger portion as the flavors are not diluted/light. If u have a steamboat bbq machine, it will fit enough for one round. If it's a duo pot steamboat bbq machine, it's 2 rounds of soup each pack can use.

    Their new item to accompany the white pepper soup. Some ppl don't like to eat but like the soup which is why they separated this. I personally ate this for maybe 3rd time in my whole life bcoz I'm scared of eating weird things. But after reading on google the benefits of Pig Tripe (stomach) and white pepper soup, I finish it all and slept well.

    Don't look down on the contents, it's actually quite a big portion enough for a big group to enjoy some each if eaten in a hot pot. To avoid over spilling ur hot pot, put a bit each time into hot pot soup if not there's not enough room for your meatballs.

    White Pepper Pig Tripe & Radish Soup
    white pepper soup + pig stomach white radish

    HK Style Prawn Wanton Mee
    prawn broth + tender egg noodles + prawn wanton

    I tried their new item White Pepper Soup + Pig Stomach & Radish for hot pot and the flavor is there! It makes me sleep so well at night I can feel my body detoxing! This is a famous soup to nourish the body especially new moms 👩‍🦰👶

    three types of sauces to choose from

    To complete your cooking, these John Authentic Foods homemade sauces will help combine all the flavors harmoniously together for an amazing meal.

    Here are some tips on how to use them:

    1. Speciality Chilli Sauce is like your homemade ah ma chillis sauce with added tanginess and a slightly spicy kick. It's really nice to dip and eat!

    2. Prawn Oil to add a stronger prawny taste into your prawn soup (hot pot) or finishing touch to your prawn wanton noodles. You can oil the bbq area with it and fry ur meats/vegs.

    3. Crispy Fried Shallots for those aunties n uncles who cannot live without this, it's the final ingredient to completing your wanton noodles. I also used this to oil the bbq hot pot and bbq my dumplings on it which turns out so great!

    (bbq grill shallot pork dumplings is now my fave)

    Our Staycation Singapore 2018


    Our 1st trip together to Singapore

    Baby G and I were chatting the other day about where we would go with my RM1,000 k holiday tax exemption claim if the MCO allowed travel again. A few countries cropped up and eventually made the top of the list, such as Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore. Singapore is the most accessible and nearest. It's also the most convenient if we were ever to go by bus again. 

    Chinese New Year in Chinatown

    Back in 2018, when Baby G stayed there for a month sightseeing and discovering Singapore on a budget, I visited him a couple of times during the long weekend holidays. Amongst the places he brought me to was Marina Bay Sands, which he frequently visited. 

    There are many different forms of public transport on offer to Singapore. You can go by car, train, bus, and plane. I've tried all 4 of them! In my opinion, I'd say the most relaxing would be the bus journey, although the fastest is by plane. Downtown Singapore is only about 25 mins away from the airport.

    Marina Bay Sands our dream hotel for staycation

    I remembered looking at photos online and thinking it was really impressive. Since it opened 10 years ago, it was only a couple of years ago, that I had the opportunity to see it with my own eyes. The world's most famous and iconic hotel, the most expensive resort ever built in Singapore by the Las Vegas Sands, at the very front of Marina Bay. Hence the hotel's name - Marina Bay Sands. 

    Anyone who is anyone would have definitely booked a hotel stay here, albeit being mighty expensive! Is it worth it for the whole experience? Read on to find out why we think so!

    it's so beautiful at night! we were amazed

    Firstly, it has an impressive Skydeck featuring that famous infinity pool, which overlooks the whole Singapore skyline - priceless! Just like that scene in Crazy Rich Asian. It also has an observation deck, a bar, and 2 restaurants.

    the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

    below here is a large whirlpool that forms the "oculus"
    a rainwater waterfall that fills the canal (see pic below!)

    the digital light canvas and oculus is a must-see here

    Secondly, it has everything you need within walking distance. I mean Singapore is not very big but if you don't want to travel far and would prefer everything within your vicinity, this place is gold. Shopping, sightseeing, convention centers, museum, digital light canvas, two theatres, and a casino. 

    So much to see, just at the mall alone, from the waterfalls to a romantic sampan ride (boat) around the shoppes.

    If I'm not wrong, there are over 80 restaurants as well here, some of which are by world-renowned chefs like Gordon Ramsay.

    at the deck where we waited for the spectra show to start at 8pm

    musical water and lights show

    fireworks finale

    that's the ArtScience Museum (ASM)

    Spectra Light & Water Show

    Lastly, the spectra of the light and water after nightfall, which anyone can catch for free by sitting at the deck. This is probably the most memorable and "it" moment of our Singapore stay. It's something like the KLCC water light show but this is by far 100 times superior. 

    A choreograph fountains, mist, music, with light beams shooting out of water sprinkles in all its neon madness. It only lasts for 15 minutes but stays in your memory forever.

    shall we go again baby?

    I vividly remember we just had to capture a picture of ourselves with the Marina Bay Sands hotel in the background. It looks like a giant ship perched on top of three magnificent towers to me! Boasting 55 stories, 2561 rooms with ceilings soaring high into the air. If you want to spend all day long just walking, people watching, or admiring every inch of this architectural beauty, then why not!

    A very unique and one-of-a-kind resort. If we had the money, we definitely would make this our "Staycation Singapore" again.
