Today's #lazymamacookinghack is Garlic Butter Chicken! It's very yummy so I've repeated it several times and have finally perfected the recipe!

Ingredients: ★chicken breast (or other parts you like)
★negi (skip this if you don't like leek!)
★1 clove of garlic
★1 tablespoon of shoyu
★half tablespoon of mirin
★One butter cube

1. I marinate the chicken with shokoji the night before, it makes even breast meat super tender!
2. Cut chicken in cube, I use the back of knife to hammer the meat a few times to gift it an even softer texture
3. Coat chicken cubes in flour
4. Fry garlic in low heat
5. Dish out garlic and fry chicken cubes on medium string heat (don't move them around!)
6. When the bottom turns brown, add back the fried garlic, negi and flip chicken and cook on medium heat.
7. Add shoyu, mirin and lastly, melt a cube of butter and it will turn very creamy and so fragrant you'll want to eat it off the fry pan 😝. Enjoy!

Bathtime for @cheesiepetit! 🛁
We all know about bath salt, but have you heard of bath sugar? "Sugaring" is beneficial especially for babies, even newborns! 👶🏻Sucremor's made in Japan organic baby skin care range is made from the world's only non-genetically-modified beet sugar grown only in Hokkaido. 🗾
Young children tend to sweat a lot, and their skin dry easily and is weak against infection. The precious Hokkaido-grown beet sugar has proven records in retaining moisture, keeping bacteria at bay and improving eczema. The products are made with 100% food grade ingredients, and every single sugar grains are coating with edible plant oils. Sakura loves the sugaring bath, especially when oniichan helps her massaging the sugaring massage pack on her back.😌😌😌
I was surprised at how fine the sugar grains are and it melts away on the skin, leaving a strong moisture barrier after the bath! 🛀🏻
I'll then give her a quick massage with my very favorite Sugar Squalane Oil, it is so gentle that you can even apply it for your baby's dry lips. 💆🏻I was always concerned about Sakura's sensitive, rash-prone skin which is caused by dryness most of the time, and it really, really does keep her skin moisturized! Super love. 😍
You can purchase the products at BHG BUGIS Level 3 Children's Dept. Find out more from! @sucremorsingapore

I received many questions asking me why my flavored rice doesn't stick to the bottom of my rice cooker or go chaoda (burnt). Welllllll it's going to sound annoying coming from me but I can only assume that because it is #japanquality. Burnt rice or scrubbing a pot full of hardened rice is unheard of 😌.

#LoveisintheAirFit! I was at MamyPoko's event at JEM earlier which was popularly welcomed by Singaporean mommies! I have talked to many mommies about their diaper concerns, and I realized that we all experience the same kinds of struggle, especially leakage and diaper rash. One mommy told me that she wanted to try MamyPoko Air Fit because the current diaper she is using keeps exploding! I told her that I had the same problem when Junya was a newborn. How we wished we knew better earlier. I hope that all the mommies who faced the same diaper issues as me can feel relaxed now that we have faith thanks to made in Japan MamyPoko and its long established reputation and popularity. For me I'm loving its super absorbency (we can go out a whole day long!) and superior air flow (no more nappy rash!). ^^
