Prosperity And Treasure Pot 2012 Not 2016

SHOPPING AND WALKING MAKES ME HUNGRY FAST.... especially with those banners displayed right outside the food outlets such as this....
Treasure Pot aka "Poon Choy" in cantonese....
The banner was displayed right outside and the price shown was beyond my budget... 
Chinese New Year is around the corner and this dish will attract customers....
I think I have eaten one time at this restaurant and I did not find it as attractive as shown.... 
That was few years back... 
ahhhh... Managed to find the picture in this post....
Taken in March 2012... 
So one time is enough... 
Coming back to my post, we stepped in to have a light lunch.... 
We ordered their "Lai Mien" with this toppings....
Our light lunch..... so we shared this bowl of noodles....
And their famous "Siew Loong Pau"... 
Two for each of us... enough... 
I won't be able to eat the third one... too meaty....
I prefer their double boil chicken soup....
First thing that came to my mind when I opened this...
Oh dear, I really must do more home cooked food...
Really cannot afford to eat like this...
With the price, I can boil one whole chicken for my family...
Well, oh well... as usual, once awhile... 
That was our light lunch... nothing spectacular...
This meal will remind me that I must be frugal from now on...

  3. Not crazy about Poon Choy, tried once...enough. Not cheap. :(

    Where is this place that is so expensive? Ipoh kah? Not one of those Hong Kong franchises, I guess. I will never bother to check those out, not at those prices. Even if the things are nicer, they can't possibly be so so so nice. I am a poor and simple man. Let the rich and the famous go and enjoy.

  6. I saw the poon choy and thought so early you ate poon choy for CNY but then as I read, oh, it was a photo from your previous post. This must be the i restaurant. The siew long bao is so big when compared to the dainty DTF's siew long bao. A good lunch.

  8. Nowadays the poon choy mostly fake one. They cook the ingredients and also the soup separately and just arrange into the pot. Not as tasty as it should be anymore.

    I also prefer what you had, especially those double boiled soup. Slurppsss!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL... 

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we
