Dim Sum No More..

I think I will not touch dim sum for another few months.
When I go for dimsum, normally I end up not eating them but other varieties like char siew pau, chee cheong fun, porridge, egg tarts, desserts and fish balls. Too much meat makes me queasy.... anyway, I think eating dim sum is very costly, I definitely cannot afford to go there often. Just a four of us will cost around RM50.00 and if there are 10, will surely cost more than a hundred ringgit. For a hundred ringgit, I rather order a set meal of rice and dishes..... yes, I am "kiamsiap" one...



  1. Me too.. But hubby likes dim sum so much. I would rather eat something that is filling to the tummy. Another "kiamsiap" one here. Wuakaka..

  2. Oh, gosh, Dim Sum! I used to know what kind of food that was, but have forgotten. Not good, since my granddaughter is Chinese. If you scroll through some of my posts, you will see her. I have put you on my sidebar blogroll, as well! In answer to your comment, yes, what you can see in this post is out house and yard. I will take a picture of our house and yard in the near future and post it on my blog so you can see!

  3. Thats quite a lot for 4 of u can eat there...I like dim sum as it always so filling..coz all meats

    I got the same way of thinking like u too, they are costly not afford to eat always..

  4. I think eating dimsum once in a month is ok and if it is too oily, I like to order tea to go with the food.

  5. inspiredmum: so we ladies are kiamsiap in a way.. :)

    ginny: over here dim sum is a norm.. esp in my town, it is famous too..

    lemonjude: yes, super lots!! my young nephews and my kids can eat a lot..good gracious! hahaha...

    spicy: normally go with chinese tea but then after drinking, i cannot sleep.. sigh..

  6. ya dim sum are costly...but once in awhile okay la

  7. hmm...i don't quite fancy dimsum either. yes, it is very costly to eat them. i prefer a bowl of noodles :)

  8. Not kiamsiap...just being smart, careful with money! It is certainly NOT cheap! Can get many other nice things with that kind of money. PLUS they always use too much msg!!! Very bad!

    Maybe for special occasion, want to treat special friends, special occasions...ok lah! We can pamper ourselves sometimes...but not ALL the time.

    Economy is not as good as people would want you to believe. Save!!!

  9. WAH!!! You all had so much dim sum! LOL!!

    Normally, if we go for dim sum i will only eat siew mai, chee cheong fun, porridge, char siew pau, lor mai kai, that's all.

  10. For me dim sum is a once in a while food 'coz I don't fancy too much of pork as it usually made of pork... I like loh mai kai but it's quite oily too, haiz...

  11. omg~ you can enter Malaysia Book of Record.

  12. Aiyo... Did you go onto a weighing scale after stuffing yourself with all those 'adorable' morsels?

  13. Is this for real? You guys actually ate all those dim sum...... stacks of them! Gosh, I think I will never take any dim sum after that. Hope you're havinga wonderful weekend, daaahling!
    Cheers, Kristy

  14. Haha :D Then don't go to the restaurant at all. Just sit and home and eat bread.

  15. kathy: yes i do agree.. it is expensive..

    stp: so i m not kiamsiap.. hahaa.. yes, our meagre pay is just enough for us to have 2 meals per day...

    dora: that is why they offer chinese tea to wash off the oil..

    isley: not me.. not me.. hahahaha..

    mingna: all i can take is one Loong...

    kristy: definitely not me.. all those by the younger generation.. haahaha..

    tekkaus: sigh...

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
