Cooking With Love

I know a lot of us would say our mum’s cooking is the best food in the world. I would too! My mom makes the best nasi lemak, bihun goreng, lontong, mee Jawa, gulai-gulai kampung, kuih Cara, kuih ketayap, puding sagu gula Melaka and the list goes on. Heck, she even makes the best omelette!

For years I thought it was because mums had years of cooking experience, but now I realized it’s not just about mastering the techniques or recipes. It’s the unconditional love that mums put into their cooking that made their dishes unforgettable. “Air tangan ibu”, as we say it in Malay. Mums cook with love and that is the secret ingredient!

My mum enjoys cooking. It’s her passion, really. I think it’s one of her ways to show her love for the family. She can spend hours in the kitchen, preparing meals for her family without any complain, and her food always taste good. You can taste the love in every bite! She even told us that there’s particular food that she cook that will remind her of each of her children (gulai masak lemak labu and puding sagu gula Melaka are some of the food that would remind her of me because those are my fave).

Undoubtedly, being a mum is never easy but things sure are different when it is done out of love for the family. Just like this video below, I’m pretty sure mothers out there can relate to this too.

Now that I’m a mum myself, I finally get it. Cooking is like love made visible. There’s this unexplainable satisfaction feeling when I get to feed my family with the food that I cook myself. Cooking has become even more fun for me now, what with my food flatlay craze. I just love arranging and styling food on the table. My girls get excited too, seeing all those beautiful set up that I made. They felt like we were having a tea party or a special dinner or something. Makes dining even more fun! Hehe.

Knorr is having a special “Knorr Penuh Rasa, Penuh Kasih Sayang” campaign to celebrate the power of mum’s cooking. They want to appreciate all the hard work and effort that mums put into their daily cooking for the family by giving them a good breakaway from house chores. Knorr will select 10 winners and each winner will get a FREE helper to clean your house for 10 sessions! I mean, if you’re a stay-at-home mum with no helper like me, you know how much this means! It means I get to sit and relax without having to vacuum, mop the floor, wipe the cabinets, scrub the sink, clean the bathrooms and everything. I need to win this! Haha.



All you need to do is:

  1. Snap a photo of your family’s favourite dish that you’ve cooked using any Knorr products. It can be either the Knorr Cube or Knorr All-in-One Seasoning. Oh, and you need to include the Knorr product pack as well in your photo.
  2. Share it on Knorr’s Facebook page together with the hashtag #KnorrPenuhRasaSayang and a short description of why the dish is your family’s favourite (in no more than 20 words).
  3. Winners will be selected based on the highest number of ‘likes’ and the most interesting description.

The Knorr Chicken Cube gives this chicken curry that extra kick. It’s so flavourful!

My husband and my girls have their own favourite dishes, but when it comes to eating rice, one of their favourite lauk is chicken curry. My husband is “orang Utara” so it’s no surprise why he loves curry very much. And somehow, my girls inherited their daddy’s love for chicken curry (as long as it’s not too spicy).

Anyway, here’s my campaign entry photo. Make sure you are in the photo, together with your dish and Knorr product pack.




Share your family’s favourite dish, mummies, and who knows you could be one of the lucky winners!
