Reanaclaire Remembers *Far Kau*

IT WAS A NO FRILLS HOMECOOKED MEAL with my kids yesterday... (presentation is not always there) hahahaa...

It was as early as 7am that I woke up and ran an errand for a friend and since it was super early, I went marketing to get some stuff for dinner... I suddenly remember that I have not used any of my "far kau" (fish maw) which I bought from US, in fact I totally forgotten about them until I rummaged my fridge!  tsk.. tsk... And...  since there were two extra "eaters" in the house yesterday, it was the perfect time to whoop up the special soup before they go off again.....
Our early dinner at 4.30pm... 

Steamed eggs with minced meat.... 
Blanched broccoli as requested by my girl....
Nyonya Assam Fish... 
This time I bought one whole fish *Ikan Senangin* 
And our "Far Kau" chicken soup with red dates, wolfberries and some slices of ginseng..
My girl was asking what is "Far Kau"...
Then I told her about the HK series "Line Walker" ...
Immediately she recalled and ended up drinking and eating all of it.... 
*One lesson learnt... I must not put too many pieces.. *

  5. Mum's homecooked food is always the best even without nice presentation. Fish maw soup, my favourite. Best is all family members can get to sit down & have a nice dinner.

  9. I like to eat blanched broccoli too. Why not put too much? Did the soup turn out to be very thick? I did not know that there are fish maws made in USA. Thought most of the fish maws are from China.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
