SLE Healthy Eating Talk


Sharing for all~

I was invited to give a healthy eating talk for SLE patients last month on 13th July 2014 at Malaysia SLE Association, Petaling Jaya. Well, this is what a dietitian does, provides nutrition and dietetics advices not only to individual, but for the community and public as well.

For those who do not know what is SLE, SLE is Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. Female will have a higher risk to suffer from SLE.

SLE patients suffer from different sign and symptoms. Therefore the dietary advices will be given according to individual problems. In this event, I was invited to share some healthy eating tips for the members, so that the patients can enjoy their meals more healthily. I will also share some photo during the event, so that you will be able to understand a dietitian's job easily.


我上个月13号被 Malaysia SLE Association 邀请给一个关于红斑狼疮健康饮食的讲座。这也就是饮食治疗师的工作。饮食治疗师除了针对个人的饮食习惯加以改善,也可以分享饮食讲座,让更多人受惠!

Meeting Running Man ~ HaHa @ Ha Dong-hoon in K-Festival

Well, just a throw back...A sharing for all...  I saw HaHa in Pavilion 2 weeks ago!!!!! It was K Festival event organised by Korea Tourism Organization on 8th of August. For those who likes K-pop, and of course for those who like Running Man, I believe you will know HaHa, one of the member in Running Man, one of my favourite artist.

Opening Ceremony

HaHa was invited in the event and both of my sisters were lucky enough to win the special zone ticket for HaHa fan meeting. Those winners were eligible to get autograph from HaHa. Well, I just able to watch from far since I didn't get the ticket. So pitiful.

HaHa Fans Meeting

One of my sister took the photo with my camera and due to her 'good' photography skill, these are the photo that I can share with you all. Hehe... hope she won't see this post... :p

Look at the crowd!!!! So many youngsters!!! I felt like I'm the minority there, well, I know I'm much older than all of them there. LOL.... 

Apart from that, a group of painters named HERO is also invited to perform on stage that night. They danced while painting, cool! Never think that can happen as most of the paint artist will take good care of their hands, and majority won't involved in something so dangerous for them, who knows what will happen if they fall and broke their hands when dancing. That's very brave of them. Really like this performance!


What a wonderful event to attend!!!

Potato Vs Vinegar

My dinners again... Today I would like to share a little bit useful information to everyone. I prepared potato for the dinner as you can see from the photo. This is a new cooking my China friend shared with me. I like this very much.

Potatoes is one of my favourite food. This is more interesting when she taught me to add in vinegar into the potatoes during the cooking so that the potato will become crispy. Any type of vinegar will do, I tried the black vinegar and white vinegar, the effect is about the same, only the outcome -- colour is different. The pototes in the photo was added with black vinegar. Therefore the colour is darker. This is something new for me, not sure whether it's new for everyone.

The texture of the potatoes become totally different when added with vinegar. It becomes more crispy and will not become soft and mushy, regardless how long you cook it. Well, I like potatoes, doesn't matter how is the preparation. But this cooking is really interesting and I like the crispy texture very much.

I googled a bit on what actually happen when vinegar is added. As I qoute from this website,
Potatoes are made up of a series of cells that contain starch granules. These cells are glued together with pectin. As the potato cooks, the pectin slowly breaks down, and the starch granules start absorbing water. When you overcook them, the first thing that happens is the pectin breaks down too far. The potato cells start falling away, and the whole thing turns mushy.

Pectin breaks down much more slowly in acidic environments. A tablespoon of vinegar per quart of water was enough to boil the potatoes without having to worry about whether or not they'll overcook. 

I cooked again another potatoes dish with vinegar, this time I sliced the potatoes. The photo above is the outcome, this is more spicy dish, Look at the potatoes, you can see the edge of them are still edgy, and not mushy.

Interesting, right? Just a sharing with everyone!

BookFest @ Malaysia 2014

Hi, I had visited BookFest @ Malaysia 2014 yesterday. I have been travelling during the Raya holiday and can only visit the BookFest on its last day.

This time, I could not get anything much from the BookFest itself. Not sure whether because I visited on the last day (most of the books had been sold off) or the just because I didn't feel like buying anything.

Not many choices when I went to the English Pavilion. Only able to get 3 books from the Mandarin Pavilion. This is definitely much much much lesser from what I managed to get last year. Sob... Sob... 

I haven't start reading them. Just to share what I managed to get in the BookFest here. Three books in total... This amount is not satisfying enough... hey, am I a book shopaholic now???
