My First Homecooked Oil-less Western Meal In Johor

I AM NOT ONE WHO GIVES UP EASILY when it comes to food... For those outside food which I have not tasted before, I will normally bookmark the place till opportunity arises and we go "surveying" the place... As for homecooked food, I might not be as "hardworking" but I will want to do some trial and error as to why the food does not turn out as expected...

For this case, it is not so much on the food but the Amway pan which I bought ten years ago but never used in Ipoh... and only started utilizing it in Johor... And each time I fry fish, they ended up broken in pieces in the pan.  I was very puzzled and did some research on youtube on the pan.  And after that, I wanted to try again, this time doing Their Way....
To kill my curiosity, I went to get three pieces of breast meat to "practise on" ...
And a piece of Salmon for my girl...
Marinated them with lemon zest, garlic, pepper and rosemary, salt for a few hours...
And now the ultimate move....
Heat up the pan in high heat, test the heat with a drop of water, if it dries up fast, it is ready!
I put my chicken breast meat into the pan... 
Lower the fire.... 
Lay them out... NO OIL added....
Closed the lid and let them cook for five minutes..
The excitement came when I turned them over....
Hey... No Sticking to the Pan!!
Then after the chicken are cooked, I put in the Salmon!
This is the tricky part...
To my amazement, the fish did not stick to the pan either!
All these time, NO OIL added....
Just look at the Salmon for my girl.... 
Not "broken" in any way.. not in my previous post!
And my piece of protein for myself.....
Ahhhh... this is more "complete"....
My first western food cooked in Johor!
No sticky sticky to the pan, I think I know how to use it now...
It is more for grilling... not frying....
Still have room for more improvement here and there.... 
Now I know how to use the pan... a more healthy way too...
No OIL....
And to complete our meal, we shared a piece of Mocca Cheese....  
Moral of the story:  Never give up cooking!
It is actually very interesting!
hahahahaa....

  2. I actually started to cook when I moved to my house which was in 2012. Just I learnt and experiment with cooking just few years only. Thinking of it, it is coming to 3 years this month end when I moved here and started to cook.

    And yeap, I hate it when the fish breaks when we wanted to flip it over. I have the problem too. Thanks for the tip.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
