Passion Food To Face The Battle

 Listen to Mama... Must cut off fried stuff, oily stuff and "heaty" stuff... and what makes the saddest of them all is the restriction on the Fruit King, The Durian!  Well, for now at least... and what makes is hard is that durian season is On now!   sigh.... Oh...well....

Another "clear" day for my stomach... no spicy, no oily-ness... just a homemade nutritious soup boiled from fish and minced meat and cooked with lots of greens.... Well, isn't that wonderful diet?  :)  I really have to thank my mother for taking care of me....  (when I should be taking care of her actually!) She makes sure I eat the correct food so as to "combat" the virus that is "attacking" and "making war" in my body system...  (will elaborate more on the war zone once I win the battle!)
Today's menu is "Tau Chim"
Dry Flat Noodles.... 
But once it is cooked with hot water, it becomes like this ... 
Very smooth oil-less noodles....
and topped with lots of greens and protein....
This is what I called "Passion Food"
(Love In The Heart)


  1. Your mom knows what is best for you. Be kiaw kiaw and take less oily food till you are completely fine. NO DURIANS for you for the time being, hehehe.

  2. Hope you are getting better. Your previous Siew Chu Kuat Chuk is very yap mei...sedap lor...

  3. Yes, mam! Though the temptation is there... Will have to refrain.. :)

  4. Angeline, memang sedap... Wouldnt mind eating them again and again...

  5. Mum's cooking always the best. She knows what is good for us. I love my mom very much too.

  6. So this weekend must kwai kwai be at home ok... no durians and no spicy food ok.

  7. Yeap now is durian season again, feels like buying some to make durian crepe... but very lazy these days. So tired after work. Skip it lar.

  8. sometimes after having too much of flavorful and greasy food.. i think i would crave for something like this.. just simple and clear and soupy with lots of greens.. your mum is great!! i like this noodles actually..

  9. aiyohhhh.... durian season and you can see cannot eat them. Take care of your health first, wait for the next durian season.

  10. Angeline: that is why i always tell the younger generation... Eat when you r young and healthy! :) dont wait till old like me... Hahaha...

    Sk: simple and no msg... :)

    Eastcoast: yes.. So sad... Can see cannot touch... Haha

  11. I used to take tau chim when I was young. Guess I must cook it some time.
    Make sure you boil the herbs. To really take out the heatiness.

  12. Mama knows best, you are so blessed to have her to take care of you. If I had to eat this food that she makes, it would be so good, it looks wonderful!!! Claire, you are on the go and working so much, everyone needs a rest to re-charge. How are you feeling now?

  13. That looks good! was your mum who cooked that. No wonder! Hehehehehehe!!!!

  14. That bowl of tau chim looks really yummy...

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
