A cosy week at home

It’s weird for us to post it, but who doesn’t have a lazy kind of day? We were still enjoying the long weekend until yesterday. It is a luxury to have such a long break. However, it is also challenging to find activities to do every day, so we just relax at home with coffee and snacks (also Netflix). Let us walk you through a lazy day at home. Both of us, usually kick-start the day with a cleansing routine. Angela will also begin with a 45-minute indoor cycle. We believed that face and body should be cleaned regularly, especially with plain water.

As sister, we are different in general, thus whenever we have breakfast/brunch together we will like to plan ahead, it is important to have a good breakfast. Here are some of our all-time favourite breakfast recipes.

Avocado Egg Salad
Azuki An Toast
Avocado Breakfast Pita
Almighty Elvis Sandwich
Avocado, Tuna, Snowpea and Egg Salad
Belgian Waffles with Fresh Fruit
Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce
Corned Beef Egg Sandwich
Chipotle Turkey Salad
Teochew’s Oyster Porridge (very Asian breakfast)

Fall in love with coffee bean

In the past, Angela preferred tea over coffee, but now she appreciates coffee too. Lately, both of us appreciate coffee in this new way – filter. We used to talk a lot about tea but ever since we drink coffee, we did some study on it. 

We are now aware of the properties of coffee and the positive effects of caffeine on our bodies. To name just a few:

  • Creates energy, stimulates intelligence and fosters concentration
  • It is a source of natural antioxidants
  • It helps to withstand physical efforts
  • It can help reduce the risk of some diseases
  • It can help eliminate fat

However, there are other benefits too. While not directly related to coffee, these rewards include a positive atmosphere of interaction and socialization that is created during the “coffee break” whether it’s at a coffee shop or at a vending machine. However, since we are at home, a cup of drip coffee of our favourite blend is always a good idea.

At times we also like to enjoy it with some of our favourite snacks, here we have a kind of Korean steamed rice cake, which is easy to heat when we are making our dripped coffee, and our coffee break is ready in no fuss.

When you’ve been working from home for a long time – or if it’s become part of your “new normal” since the COVID-19 pandemic began – working remotely can come with some unique changes. We usually have snack time after screen time to relieve our tired eyes. For those who don’t like filter coffee, here are some of our favourite break-time snacks and drinks.

Apple and Pear Chips
Ang Ku Kueh
Baked Mini Hotdog Puff
Hong Kong Style Egg Tarts
Red Bean Paste (Anko)
Turnip Cake (Lo Bak Ko)
Apple Cinnamon Latte
Biscoff Irish Cream Coffee
Chamomile Latte
Matcha Latte
Matcha Espresso
Turmeric Almond Milk

We hope that the recipes we share with you will make your day at home more enjoyable and bring you joy. 

xoxo, Angela
