Steamed Rice And Chicken In Mini Cooker

I DON'T EAT OUT MOST OF THE TIME, only in the mornings or lunch... so most evenings, Reanaclaire does cook if nobody buys her dinner... hahahaa...  Since I have much free time now, I do like to venture into homecooking dishes and it is so unfortunate that my kids are not with me nowto enjoy MY homecooked food.... Not sure it is their loss, now come to think of it... It might be the other way round... hahahaha...  *Thank goodness we don't have to eat Mom's cooking!*  I wonder if they think like that... OK, I don't think they do cos they always say... Yummy, Mom... hehehee... Always trying to make their mom happy, I suppose! 

I love this retirement gift very much, given by my colleague... she understands me very well... this mini cooker is very useful... suits me real fine!
I could steam a chicken drumstick using this mini cooker...
I marinated the chicken drumstick for a couple of hours 
before steaming it together with the rice....
Save electricity and cleaning up wok!
I put a lot of red dates and wolfberries... so sweet and savoury at the same time...
Then some greens to balance up.....
Yes, corn soup too to sum them up together to make our dinner complete....
That was our dinner... for me and my girl!

  2. Ahhhhh!!!! I was just going to ask - you ate all that alone? Hmmm...I wonder how it is like when your girl is not home. When alone, I would just have some cookies or biscuits, eat bread...fry any leftover rice or cook instant noodles. So lazy to do anything.

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…
