It Is Otak-Otak!

A few of you have guessed correctly.... The name of this dish is called....
OTAK-OTAK!! 

When the dish was served, I was taken aback... I expected the otak-otak to be wrapped up .. instead it came out on a big plate just like the above .... Well, the taste is somewhat different... it was not as juicy, I preferred it to be wrapped up as it is supposed to be....

Okay... as for the correct answers... They are from...... SK, Merryn, YKristen, Wenn, Angeline and Mun!   Six of you got the answer correct... and since there is only one prize, I have to make a "draw" again... 

And the number that comes out is...............

No. 3.. No.3... That means ykristen is the One who will receive a small token!!

(ykristen, please contact me if you read this! )

Lastly and not least, Thank You All for your comments and joining in the Fun!  More will be coming...  and coming...  :)

  13. Yahor!!!!! SK is right! Clever you, SK!

    I forgot that the northern otak-otak is steamed - like the ones in Penang...but wrapped in banana leaf, the bits of fish buried in the wobbly egg custard - different from Muar's.

    Anyway, whatever style, whatever way they cook it...cannot beat the one in Sibu - Payung Cafe! They too have a different style - their own original recipe. Did you try when you were in Sibu, Claire?

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
