How to make a pizza?

My girls are so into cooking and they love their pizza a lot!

So I brought them and my good friend Sabby to Doughworkz family bonding class the other time! The husband had a soccer match so he could not accompany us, unfortunately.

ooo

But anyway.

WHAT IS DOUGHWORKZ FAMILY BONDING CLASS PLEASE?

Doughworkz by PastaMania is a monthly pasta and pizza making class customised for children from 4 to 12 years old.

At Doughworkz, children become mini masterchefs and make their own pizza from scratch! Yes, they will be given their own chef’s hat and apron.

Plus, they will also get to enjoy their handmade pizza at the end of the session too.

My girls were really excited to know that they would be making their own pizza. But right before they started with the pizza making, they were introduced to the basics of food preparation hygiene by the friendly Doughworkz team! They also got to learn interesting facts about pasta and pizza to expand their food knowledge.

Let’s make pizza now!

Step 1

First, make sure the surface is clean and dry. Heap flour onto it.

The girls did not have to make the dough from scratch because the Doughworkz team already demonstrated how to make the dough and shaped it into balls for all the participants.

Step 2

So the next step is to use the pressure of both hands to flatten the dough.

Step 3

Then, use the fingertips and middle of fingers to gently stretch into a flat circle. Keep pushing the edges out until you get the desired size.

Step 4

Spread the sauce evenly on the base.

Step 5:

Since the theme for the class the other day was Halloween, the challenge was for the participants to decorate the pizza with the toppings and make it as scary looking as possible! Of course I had to get myself involved in this activity. So I helped Mysha with the decorating part!

Sabby was so engrossed with her pizza too!

Step 6:

Time to bake the pizza!

Look at my proud girls with their baked pizza!

Step 7:

Time to eat!

No pizza will ever taste as fresh as it does when you eat it straight from the oven! And we got to do just that during the Doughworkz class!

Oh guess what?

Mysha was one of the winners for the BEST DECORATED PIZZA! Sabby’s pizza won too! They each won a scoop of ice-cream!

HURRAYYYYYY!

My girls had lots of fun kneading the dough and decorating their own pizza, definitely. I had a lot of fun too snapping their photos and helping them out with the pizza making. Definitely a great way to bond with the kids!

One thing for sure, it was not THAT EASY to knead the dough to the perfect shape, size and thickness! Thank goodness the Doughworkz guys were always around to assist us!

At the end of the class, my little chefs got to bring home with a goodie bag of mini apron, chef hat, certificate and a photo of them in the cute getup.

But of course we did not go home right away. How could we leave PastaMania without dining there? Wait a minute, you do know that Pastamania is halal-certified right?

Everyone ordered the usual.

Seafood Marinara for me!

And kids’ meals for my girls!

I totally forgot to order my favourite Banana Pizza! You must try their Banana Pizza, guys! Its basically thin crust pizza with banana and chocolate shavings toppings.

YUMMYYYYYYYY!

A Jolly Seafood Fare: Fish & Co.

Just the other day, I received this really special delivery from Fish & Co.

fishnco9

 

Why, of course I would want to bring my family for a Christmas meal at Fish & Co.

After all, my girls LOVE Fish & Co. and get so excited at the mere mention of having lunch or dinner there!

And come on, just look at their Christmas specials!

 

fishncoxmas

 

I love trying out anything that is available for a limited time period only because I know that it is often a now or never kind of situation.

So we arranged to have lunch at their newly opened Bugis+ outlet right after our Treasure Island play.

 

fishnco8

 

(Their Bugis+ branch is soooooooo beautiful, by the way! A birthday party there will be wicked! Heheh.)

 

First up, our drinks. 

 

fishnco2

 

Blue Dream, Jazz Me-Up and Double Yellow Line for us!

Mysha and I especially loved the Jazz Me-Up because it has a fine mixture of sweet and sour! Really refreshing to the max, if you ask me.

 

Grilled White Fish with Ebiko

 

fishnco5

OH MY GOODNESS, THIS ONE IS REALLY REALLY REAAAAAAALLLY NICE!

What is it basically?

It is Grilled White Fish baked with ebiko roe and mozzarella cheese. We like how the fish is not too cheesy or rich. It’s almost like not eating cheese at all.

We might just substitute the usual Fish &  Chips with this instead for our future Fish & Co. visits, if they have plans to retain this one!

Shrimp & Clam Aglio Olio

 

fishnco4

 

If you are an Aglio Olio lover like me, you will definitely like this one too.

And at long last…

We got to feast on this luxurious pot of Seafood goodness! 

fishnco3

 

It is like dipping yourself into a cream mushroom ocean of prawns, clams, mussels, scallops, fish!

REALLY, REALLY GOOD AND SUCH A SATISFYING MEAL!

And how can we leave Fish & Co without their famous Hot Fudge cake?

 

fishnco6

 

Thank you Fish & Co. for yet another satisfying meal!

And thank you so much to The Good Folks for making this possible. 🙂

If you would like to try out their Jolly Seafood Fare, you can do so till 3 January 2016!

Kids Rule @ Fish & Co.

My lovely twins turned seven yesterday!

My intention was to surprise them. One of the surprises was the staycation at D’Resort Downtown East a day before their birthday. (You can read my daily updates via my Facebook: Diah Mastura Roslan) If that was not enough, I planned another surprise for them on their birthday. I thought it would be nice to have simple celebration with them first while waiting for the actual celebration this weekend, together with the big family.

It was supposed to be just lunch at their favourite family chain restaurant…

Fish & Co.

FC14

Well, I know for certain that it would make them so happy to know that we would be having lunch at Fish & Co. because each time we go out and I ask them to suggest a place to dine at, they will ALWAYS suggest Fish & Co. But of course, we cannot possibly be dining at Fish & Co. every single day, can we?

So yeah, girls chose their favourite from the KIDS MEAL!

FC5

CAPTAIN HOOK, BUT OF COURSE!

FC21

I asked them to look at the menu, but they still told me they wanted Captain Hook.

LOL THEY ARE HOOKED, ALRIGHT.

 

FC1

So now they are big enough to order their own food, huh?

FC3

And as usual, they begged me for the soup of the day.

THEY SIMPLY LOVE THE CHOWDER SOUP AT FISH & CO.

Me too, actually, I think they have the best chowder soup. 

You know, I really love ordering the Kids Meal for the girls. Besides not having to worry that the portion will be too big for them, I like what comes together with the meal.

At just $8.95, every Kids Meal comes with:

  • 1 choice of side order
  • 1 choice of drink
  • 1 choice of dessert

PLUS ALL OF THE BELOW!

FC13

FC2

But wait, now that Children’s Day is coming, perhaps I should also let you know that…

all kids will eat for free at Fish & Co. on 9th October 2015!

FC19

YES, EVERY KIDS MEAL WILL BE FREE WITH EVERY ALA CARTE MAIN COURSE PURCHASED!

JUST LOOK AT THE CHOICES AVAILABLE FOR THE KIDS!

FC25

It’s only fair. Parents, you cannot possibly expect to eat for free on Children’s Day, right?

So just take a wefie and move on.

FC4

Okay so we took another wefie before moving on.

FC15

My fellow adults and those young at heart (only), you know you too have so many choices to choose from, right?

I ordered this for myself yesterday!

Seafood Platter for 1

It is so nice to know that the whole platter set is really just for you, isn’t it? Sometimes, it can be quite a heart pain to share something so nice.  LOL.

FC7

Tatek ordered the usual!

 Stingray with Black Pepper Sauce

You need to try this if you have yet to. Just imagine the soft and succulent flesh dripping with black pepper sauce. Whenever Tatek eats this, he will always forget to ask me whether I want some. Same thing happened yesterday. Not too sure whether he does it on purpose all the time.

FC9

Oh for starters, we had the Buffalo Drumlets!

FC8

Need you ask whether we enjoyed our lunch?

IT WAS SUPERB AS USUAL!

Once we were done with lunch, the awesome bunch from Fish & Co. surprised the girls with a birthday song and a hot fudge cake each!

FC24

THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU GUYS! 

FC23

(Can we have every birthday celebration at Fish & Co. please? LOL)

FC18

Hope you enjoyed your birthday celebration, Mysha and Myreen!

Hope you will continue to be each other’s best friend.

FC6

And Kakak’s best friends too lah okay. (Otherwise, she would be all alone.)

FC12

I LOVE YOU GIRLS SO VERY MUCH.
