Missing You On Winter Solstice....

Today is Winter Solstice... my kids are not with me but I know they wanted to be home as much I love them to be.  But circumstances do not allow it at this moment but soon... very soon we will be together again!

My siblings and I had a very scrumptious dinner at my mother's place... she is very "terror" one, terror in my English sense is "Power Cook"... she can cope up and cook these dishes at one go.. fast and swift... nice and yummylicious dishes....so these were what we had this evening...
Steamed "Village" Chicken....
Marinated Vinegar Cucumber....
Two types of vegetables.. broccoli and cauliflower... 
Fish Maw soup!
And what is that she is holding?
Yes, Trotters in Black Vinegar!!
My favourite too!  Now I can feel my face having some "burning sensation"............
Simple... Complicated... Appetizing... Yummylicious...
Come Let's Wallop.... 
Last and not least.... 
Odd Shapes Tong Yuen!

My Do Re Mi are not home yet... Yes, I know the three of you like to drink the syrup and eat these rice flour balls... Not to worry, your grandma has saved a packet in the fridge, when the three of you come back, we will do them again!  Whatever shapes you all want to....
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

  10. Hello Claire,

    Your mother is really a great cook as she can make so many dishes in a short time.

    Your children must be also missing you and their grandmother too on this festive day.

    Happy Winter Solstice to you and your family!

    1. Same to you, Mun! Hope you had a good time with your family too!!

  11. Double thumbs up for your mum's cooking! Hers has that mum-cooked look. Too bad my mum can no longer cook for a long time now. Bet she misses that a lot...and misses seeing the family enjoying what she dished out, licking the plates clean. None of your kids home? Hope they'll be home with Christmas - would be so sad and lonely without them...or you'll be going over to Singapore or Penang again?

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...

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....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
