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.

  4. This time the fish is very nicely done. There goes the saying....practice makes perfect. A big clap for RC. So the trick is no oil needed using Amyway pan.

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

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

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 str
