It was a simple dinner in door on a quiet Sunday night.
Good food, good company and very healthy (just a little bit of carbs).
In Australia, we have long weekend this week. So I definitely have had a very well spent long weekend with doing as little as possible. Just stayed in door and cook good food and hanging out with good company.
Still trying to go to Vivid (light festival in Sydney) before it ends 😦 !
What are you all doing this weekend ?

I made my own version of Chicken Laska today, it was really simple, quick and tasty. See below for my easy recipe:
- 2 tbs of Olive oil
- 250ml coconut milk
- 500ml chicken stock
- 200 ml of water
- 1 tbs fish sauce
- 1 roast chicken
- 200g vermicelli noodles
- 3 tomatoes
- 1 bag of beansprout
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 jar of laska paste
Step 1Heat oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add Olive oil and onion. Stir until the onion is brown and add the laska paste from the jar. Meanwhile, pick the roast chicken into serving pieces and add into the pot. Stir for about 3 minutes, add the chicken stock and water. Bring to boil and add the coconut milk in. Add the fish sauce and bring to boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes (cut into serving pieces) and leave on stove for 3 minutes before turning the stove off.
Step 3Cook the noodles according to packet instructions. These noodles only takes about 5 minutes not like pasta so don’t leave too long on stove, it will be soggy. Drain noodles
In a bowl, add some beansprout, add the drained vermicelli and then laska soup over the noodle. If you like spicy then add some fresh chili and dried onion over the top.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and squeeze over the juice of the lemon slices. Add all the cut vegetable to the baking tray and then put the squeeze lemon slices on top across the tray. Bake for 45 minutes.
2. Microwave the butter for 15 seconds until liquid, brush over the top of chicken. Add the rosemary and bake for a further 15 minutes.
3. Rest for 10 minutes and serve
I have a very round body, so I always try to eat low carbs food but often only lasts a few days.
I challenged myself to have proper breakfast for 5 days in a row and the below is the result. We all got to start some where right 🙂
Nice and light.
This meal was so filling as it have high protein. I had breakfast at 9am and did not have lunch until 1pm.
This gotta be my favorite, it was so nice. A touch of raw sugar in the oat porridge with banana toppings.
So yeah it was that simple. I will be commencing another 5 days and will show you guys what I have in my up coming posts.
Do it with me 🙂
HOME THAI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Drumrollllllll*
By far the best quality of food that is affordable in the city of Sydney in my personal experience.
If you love your spicy and savoury foods, Home Thai is definitely the go-to restaurant.
Located opposite to a car park on Sussex Street, so why not. Sometimes I think parking there is more expensive than the food itself.
What to order there for two?
- 1 entry dish
- A salad
- A stir fry dish with rice to share
- 1 dessert dish each
That is enough to make you feel bloated!
In the past I have ordered padthai almost everywhere I go, ( i know, the typical type )..but not anymore ever since I have discovered this restaurant.
For entree, I usually try out a different dishes every time I come here. Some of these are:
When you go to Homethai, the Roasted pork belly with bean sauce dish .. . Oh..My..GOD! It is soooo tasty guys, a MUST order dish.
So before I go on, I must tell you guys that Home Thai has recently upgraded their menu. The famous black sticky rice with mango and custard dessert has been taken off their menu. I am devasted. The staff there told me that it takes too long and a lot of effort is put in so that’s why it has been removed. 😦
They still keep the normal sticky rice with mango, but imho this one is just okay…. Looks like I might need to live on the dips one for a while. Tough.
Even though I am thrilled that they have removed some dishes but overall Home Thai’s foods are mostly tasty (the odd occasion when the chef is not in the mood LOL).
Let me know if you guys are into the same kind of food!
