My Humble Dinner On Dumpling Day

On medical leave today because I spent the earlier part of my sleep coughing and coughing... something sharp seems to be poking at my throat so much so that the tears came if I retrained from coughing. My sleep was really disturbed and I told myself that I really need to go and pay a visit to the doctor the very next day...

I went to the Government clinic in Kampong Simee during lunch time and I was expecting a big crowd since it is Monday... but to my astonishment, there were just a few patients....
Just a mere seven before me....and everything was done up so fast... 
By 2.20pm, I was out from the clinic already.. only a half hour wait...
and I went home with a bottle of cough mixture...
I have yet to take a sip... yet to.... 
As for my humble dinner, it is just some dry noodles made in Sitiawan....
Add in some meat and greens to make the soup tasty a bit.... 
Since it is Dumpling Day, the meal must be complete with one....
My sister gave me one of these.... 
I called it "Hoong Tau Kan Sui Choong"  (Red Bean Dumpling)
It would taste great if only there is some gula melaka syrup...
But for tonight, a bit of sprinkled brown sugar is satisfactory enough...
 Yummmss!
Enjoy your Dumplings, folks!

  4. Hello Claire,

    Get well soon! Haha, I did not even know that it is dumpling day until I read your post. The red bean dumpling looks tasty. I can eat it just like that without any sugar or kaya.

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...
