Teochew Porridge In Pasir Puteh

COME MONDAY MORNING...

I overslept!  Supposedly to go out for breakfast with my friend around 9.30am instead of 10.30am by the time I got ready.  A thousand apologies to my friend who was patiently waiting for my whatsapp message, she is smart, she has taken a light breakfast first and mine was the second meal of the day... hahahahaa....

By the time we reached Pasir Puteh, it was almost 11am... time for brunch instead of breakfast and we had a light one at a corner shop where every dish was still fresh and warm.  But I didn't feel like taking economy rice but porridge instead... and these were my humble choices....

While porridge with three condiments.... RM7.60

Preserved radish aka "choy poe" ... Not sure I got it right....
Fresh peanuts with crispy anchovies...
Softened Mui Choy.... 
Sai Mai Loe... mixed fruits....
That was our simple brunch.... 
And after our meal, we proceeded to visit a friend who is not feeling well...
Spend a couple of hours there... 
And collected some pots of flowers from another friend on the way back.... 
Oh, I am not a flower lover and know nothing about gardening...
But I know someone is Really Happy to bring home these lovelies back to her garden of Eden...

  1. I love Teochew porridge but I will always order this and that, everything I would want...and it can get quite expensive at times. Hah!!! For a while, I thought you've gone into gardening - lots of time after retirement. They look nice...but give to me, will guarantee all die one! :D

  5. Ha ha...looks like our friends know who is the new proud owner of the beautiful plants. Oh Claire, I am feeling so blessed. I was expecting 2 pots of flowers but when I took them out of the boxes, there were 4 pots of different colours. Thank you and your friend so much for the flowers. I hope I know how to care for them. Bless you and your friend for these lovelies!

  9. That peanuts and ikan bilis... the ratio is wrong between the two. Too much peanuts and too little anchovies!

  10. I am also a Teochew and believe me that I love good porridge very much.
    I was sick last night and woke up hungry near midnight, craving for porridge.
    So I ended up going to McD for the only available porridge at 11:45pm!
    Next time, I should ta bao home and add all the ingredients in your photos!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
