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

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!

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...
