Invitation To A Homecooked Meal

I called up my cell leader around 6pm, wanted to invite her out for a simple dinner.... and to my sheer delight, she told me to go over to her house for dinner instead!  I was more than happy.... hahaha... love homecooked food anytime! 

I was told to go at 7pm and I arrived exactly on time!  Food was already on the table.... and she told me that the dinner was all vegetables and no meat.... Well, that was really FINE with me!  Nowadays I prefer more vegetables to meat....

Due to the yellow lighting in her dining hall, all my pictures turn out this colour.... anyone can help me to edit this to white?  hahahaa... Don't think that is possible, right?
Ok, what's this?
She told me this tastes like Ikan Perut but without the main ingredient...
(Pickled Fish Stomach Curry)
This dish consist of all vegetables only.. including pineapple...
Really appetizing... I love it!
Another vegetable dish... 
Yellow Pepper with green vege (choy sum), enoki and cucumber!
Very sweet and tasty!
My picture is not doing any credit... 
And this is Otak-Otak... very lemak (rich in santan)
She got it from somewhere.... 
Lastly and not least... a bowl of soup that consists of basil, mint, anchovies and egg....
Yummy!!  So full of nutrients, right?
It is not a simple dinner after all.... 
I wouldn't mind coming by now and then, I told her.....
Just give me a tinkle and
 I'LL BE THERE!!
hahahaaa....

  6. Claire, your timing is impeccable! Nice vegetarian dishes. For the vegetarian perut ikan dish, one can eat many bowls of rice because it is very appetizing. So the otak-otak does not contain any fish meat too?

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

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

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...
