DIY Petai Fried Rice

Reanaclaire cooks again! One vendor parked his car in my office compound and started to sell raw petai (stinky beans).... No, he is not any ordinary vendor, somebody from the office must have told him to come and sell his petai to us with super cheap price. Each of us got 8 strands of petai for only RM3! So cheap!

Being "auntie-ness" and not wanting to be left out for not buying, I ended up with 8 strands of petai too... then cracking my head what to do with them after that...

 I got eight strands of the above.....
and it took me more than half an hour to get them peeled and cleaned....

Upon reaching home, I quickly cook rice... 
Actually I steamed them.... took me half hour or so...
Fragrance restored in steaming....
Oh, I thought my stove has ran out of gas...
It took me some time to get the fire going..
2 eggs, lots of garlic and RM3 of petai.....
Add in some dried sambal prawns given by my colleague....
And within minutes, my dinner is ready!
My Petai Fried Rice....
Eating petai is for "washing" our kidneys...
But for the next few days, I have to wash my toilet!
hahahahaaa....

  2. The more you need to wash your toilet means the more effective your kidney is cleaned though, which is good news :D

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
