[Iridescent Food] Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton

Hollaaa everyone! Introducing Mak’s Chee, famous with its 100-year old recipe from the Mak’s Family, is set to open its second outlet at Pavilion Elite, a new wing of Pavilion Shopping Mall to the public on 1st May, 2017 following the huge success of its first outlet which was opened at 1 Utama last year.  For those people that love Hong Kong wonton noodles, need not fly to Hong Kong anymore as Mak’s Chee has an outlet in One Utama and now, Pavilion as well!

The difference between Mak’s Chee authentic wonton with our local wonton noodles is that Mak’s Chee wonton is made out of 99% sea prawns instead of our local wonton using pork meat.

Story of Mak’s Chee 

Mak’s Chee is a quick casual restaurant serving authentic Hong-Kong-style wonton noodles, using a 100-year old recipe from the Mak’s Family.  The Mak’s Chee recipe is originated from a street-side eatery in Guangzhou before World War II by Mr. Mak Woon-Chee, known as the King of Wonton.  The war brought the Mak’s Family to Hong Kong and Woon-Chee’s lineal descendants carried on the recipe and tradition since then.

From there on, the Mak’s name grew in popularity in Hong Kong and the “gold fish shaped” wontons and the special homemade noodles received Michelin’s Bib-Gourmand title.  The recipe was complimented by a long list of famouspersonalities such as the Former President of the Republic of China – Chiang Kai-Shek and Former First Lady Soong May-Ling, the infamous food critic Chua Lam as well as renowned American chef, author & TV host Anthony Bourdain.

[Iridescent Pregnancy] Pregnancy Guru

Here, we give you the top tips to go through pregnancy easier.

momspring

  1.  Morning Blues

Having troubles with morning sickness? Fret not. Here are some tips to help you~:

  • Eat mini-meals throughout the day. Eating smaller meals more frequently can ease digestion and keep your stomach filled. Nausea is even worse on an empty stomach. While you may want to opt for bland foods, experts recommend eating whatever you have a hankering for, as long as it’s healthy.
  • Have ginger. It’s a proven soother for upset stomachs, so try grating some fresh ginger into your tea or juice to get the full benefits. I usually buy my ginger tea from Ginger cubes, BMS Organics.
  • Try B6. A supplement of this vitamin may help your stomach empty faster. Ask your family doctor for the appropriate prescription. =)

2. Food cravings & Aversions

If the craving is healthy and you’re not scarfing down bags of chips or pints of ice cream, then you can indulge! After all, we are eating for two, right? Here’s a good rule: Limit your treats to one 75-to-100-calorie serving per day. For food aversions, try substituting these foods for the ones you can’t stomach:

5 Popular Mistakes When Feeding Babies_2

  • If you can’t drink milk, substitute low-fat cheese, cottage cheese or yogurt. Try sneaking milk into sauces, soups, oatmeal or pancakes.
  • If you can’t swallow veggies, munch on fruits rich in beta-carotene, like mango, apricot and cantaloupe.
  • If meat turns you off, try beans, or hide beef, chicken or turkey in sauces, soups and stews.

3. Feeling Fatigue?

Feeling tired 24 hours a day is one of the most common side effects of pregnancy.

One hidden culprit for excessive fatigue is anemia. Extra iron is needed to make the baby’s blood cells, and if you don’t have enough iron, the baby will take what it needs from your body, shortchanging you. Your doctor will give you a blood test during your first prenatal visit to check your iron stores. If you don’t have enough, she’s likely to prescribe a supplement.

Ways to combat your tiredness~:

  • Get moving. Even if all you want to do is lie on the couch, take a short walk or just do some light stretching. Twenty minutes a few times a week can give you a lift.
  • Take your prenatal vitamin. It will fill the gaps if your appetite for food is at an all-time low, and because it contains iron, it can help stave off anemia.
  • Sleep when you can. Go to bed earlier, get up later and nap when you can. If you’re working all day, take a 15-minute catnap at your desk.

4. Pee like a champion

Even if you’re not showing yet, your uterus is growing—and that’s causing pressure on your bladder, which never really empties. Plus, your kidneys are working overtime to flush wastes out of your body. The result: a need to pee often. But don’t cut back on liquids, and don’t wait to urinate because holding it can cause a urinary tract infection. To reduce the number of nighttime bathroom trips, stop drinking a few hours before bedtime, cut out caffeine at night (it’s a bladder stimulant) and go one last time before you turn off the light.

5. Acne

You may break out because your hormones are working overtime, causing your skin to produce more oil. Acne may subside later in your pregnancy, but to help control it now:

  • Don’t scrub or overwash your skin. Use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil to avoid overdrying it. I use Cetaphil all the time now.
  • Switch to an oil-free moisturizer. There’s no reason to add oil to your overly oily skin.
  • Check the labels of the products you use. Glycolic acid is okay, but ditch those containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, retinols or steroids: They could potentially cause birth defects. For body, try opting for Natural Handmade Soaps. I’m using Le Savon & selling it too.

6. Swollen breasts

Even though your baby is the size of a comma, your breasts are getting ready to nurse her. Hormonal changes and expanding milk ducts produce a growth spurt, usually around your sixth week of pregnancy, and make your breasts feel swollen and tender. To ease the ache:

  • Buy larger bras with extra rows of hooks for easy adjustments. Don’t waste money on tight front closures.
  • Get a soft cotton “sleep” bra if soreness is preventing you from getting rest—the support will ease the ache.

7. Emotional roller coaster

f180239a487e2ce3a454b9be445fa761

Hormones, lack of sleep, the reality of pregnancy—all of these can contribute to a roller coaster of emotions. You could feel quiet and withdrawn, elated, worried, angry, tearful or happy-go-lucky—and it’s all perfectly fine.

Of course, it’s better to stay on an even keel as much as you can (your loved ones will thank you), so try to get as much rest and exercise as you can. Finding sympathetic friends also helps—preferably those who are pregnant, online or off.

To end this blog post, here are 3 motivational quotes for all super mommy out there!

To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and undoubtedly inhabited.

By Anne Buchanan & Debra Klingsporn

The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.

– Jill Churchill

Truthfully, being pregnant is changing me as a person. Each day is part of this amazing journey that has completely shifted the focus of my life and made me reevaluate my personal and professional goals.
