Reanaclaire Cooks - Using Electrical Gadgets

My day started off with a nice breakfast in Bercham with my girl ... today we were quite adventurous, we ventured out to a new place in Bercham and we enjoyed our brunch tremendously.  Too bad we did not take any pictures but worry not, we will come back to this shop again some day...

After our brunch, we adjourned for some shopping at Kinta City, both of us bought something nice for ourselves before we went to the supermarket to get some stuff for tonight's dinner.  Our intention was to buy fish and some greens.  On top of that, we bought some other stuff as well... and at the cashier's counter, my phone rang.  Meanwhile my girl has taken some of the stuff to be weighed and by the time she came back, the goods were all paid and ready to be deposited into the trolley.

Upon reaching home and while unpacking the foodstuff, I realized the fish and the greens were missing... Oh oh... Not wanting to say defeat, we drove out again to the supermarket... but then when I asked the cashier, she said she didn't see anything left behind.... sigh... my dinner package was gone with the wind... I calculated.. it was around RM20 worth of food.  :)   No worries... hope someone else will enjoy the food instead...

Leaving no choice, our menu was changed last minute.... And to my chagrin, the stove ran out of gas while boiling the soup half way.  The man told me that there would be no delivery on this public holiday.. sigh...

No worries again... anything can be solved.... Why not use the Induction Cooker, my girl asked... hahaha.. I really forgotten about that... Really!
My office gift being made to use.... very timely indeed especially situations like this...
Boiling chicken with herbs...

Another gift being used is this...
Given by my colleague.... 
First time using this too... 
Steamed rice....
As for the top plate, sliced arrowhead and chinese sausage...
were cooked so nicely!!
And then we tried stir-frying one dish on the induction cooker....
First blanch the Broccoli...
Then sauteed the onions and garlic...
Add in the fresh scallops and broccoli
And it is cooked in no time!
A simple dinner for two....
My two gifts are being used to full force...
At least for today...
hahahaha...

  4. Nice meal - just right for two! Good also that you have a chance to use your two gifts.

    Once I forgot to take my grocery too and only remembered when I reached home. Went there again and luckily the cashier kept them for me under the payment counter and gave them to me when I showed her the receipt. May the person who took your fish and vege make good use of them.

  7. We have an Induction Cooker too, seldom use...keep for emergencies. Consume a lot of electricity or not? That steamer looks great for the recent fad/craze - the tomato rice.

  8. Hah, again ahh food went missing? I remembered previously it was the pumpkin or something like that in the wet market.. And this time it was the fish, and you drove back somemore.. Nevermind, you have the induction cooker and the electrical lunch box.. I use the electrical lunch box to cook small portion of food too :)

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
