Its Just Peanuts Porridge After A Hard Chore

"Life is not a garden of roses even though it is a holiday"
Today is Sunday... after our morning service, we took a break in old town relaxing in Lim Kopi outlet... we spent a couple of hours having our breakfast and a walk through Concubine Lane again..  That would be another story to talk about... perhaps tomorrow...

But today... this afternoon when we came home sweating, we just didn't go straight for a cooling bath.  Since we were already sweaty, we might as well do something to make our bath "worth the water".... hahaha... Is there such a phrase!

Upon mama's request, we ventured straight to the room that always need to be tidied every few months or so.  Forgotten when was the last time we had done that... seems like umpteen years ago!  hahaha...
I called this our Dungeon room!
We are prone to throw everything inside after each outing.... 
And it is always in Messy.. throughout the days and months...
And "where shall I start???"
Which portion of the room shall we begin?
There was practically no space for us to walk.. 
*so embarrassed*
But we didn't give up...
After some sweaty minutes...
I think our dungeon room become a store room again.... 
.... er... that is for now... and tomorrow...
Can never promise what it would be like in another month or so... 
And due to her hard work, I rewarded her with her favourite dish...
She knows where my limits are... 
Too complicated dishes are out...
Simple dish like porridge is what I can actually do...

Soak them well for many minutes....
Add in dried scallops and "salted preserved vege"
(Tai Tou Choy)
Dried mini oysters should be added too...
and boil for many minutes....
The peanuts need longer time to soften....
The porridge is cooked...
Add a dash of pepper...
And it is ready to be consumed... heartily....

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
