Reanaclaire's Assam Fish And Eggs With Tomatoes

FIRST TIME MAKING ASSAM FISH here in my little kitchen...

I bought three pieces of Red Fish and a packet of Nyonya paste... thought of buying some ladies' fingers aka okra then saw the price RM3.50 for a packet!  I put it back and chose three brinjals instead and what did I get?  The brinjals cost RM4.15... aiyoh, more expensive than the ladies fingers... see, penny wise, pound foolish.. ended up buying more expensive... *didn't feel like putting them back after weighing... self conscious!*

Since my little kitchen is going to close up once again, I tried to "get rid" of all perishable stuff in the fridge.. eggs, onions, garlic, tomatoes... I know my son will not do any more cooking when I am not around... so better use up whatever that cannot keep too long...
And thence the Assam Fish Curry....
Cut up everything...
Sauteed the garlic, big onions, fermented beancurd sauce and Nyonya sauce..
And dump all the vegetables inside after a few minutes..
Add in some water...
*but I ended up putting too much* 
And put in the fish when the vegetables turned a bit soft... 
Anyway... all turn out well and one....
My sons said more sauce is good...
Can drink as soup!!
hahhaaa...
Three eggs beaten well and sauteed with cut tomatoes and big onions.....
And our evening dinner... 
Very simple!
Eaten with our pumpkin brown rice and sambal dried prawns!
When I said Little Kitchen, it really means very mini sized..
Only one person can go in and cook..and that is...
Reanaclaire!

  8. Since they don't cook, so it is pointless to have a big kitchen anyway! Now that you going to stay with them for a bit, maybe is time to redo the kitchen to be bigger. Or get a bigger house! :D

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
