It's the school holidays and student Erin Sonia Colin isn’t allowed to play in the park or watch the latest movie in the cinema. Students like Erin have been advised to stay home amid the movement control order. To keep herself busy, Erin’s mother Liza Anand has decided to teach her a thing or two in the kitchen.
“So far, Mummy has taught me how to bake a butter cake and cupcakes. It is easy to bake a cake. I only used four ingredients: eggs, sugar, butter and self raising flour. The most difficult part is cleaning up the mess, ” Erin laments.
In the past, Erin would spend the school holidays visiting her grandmother in Johor or going on holiday with her parents and older sister.
This time around, everything has been put on hold.
“Mummy says it is better to stay put in Kuala Lumpur. Grandma is old and Mummy doesn’t want to travel and put us all at risk of catching the virus. She says it is better to be safe than sorry.” So, Erin (and her mother) hopes she can improve her culinary skills. Next on the itinerary: learning to poach eggs, make eclairs and pancakes.
“Mummy says I make the best scrambled eggs and omelette. But I want to learn to make poached eggs as I think they taste nice, ” says Erin, who enjoys TV cooking programmes like MasterChef Junior, Kids Baking Championship and Bake with Anna Olson.
