A No Frills Dinner At Home For Four

NIGHTS OF HOMECOOKED DINNER FOR AARON AND MYSELF... ever since he came back to Ipoh since Tuesday. Oh sorry, only on Tuesday evening we went out for dinner and that too, was a homely type of meal... From Wednesday till today Sunday, we had our evening meal at different homes.... and out from the five nights, I cook TWO times!

Yes, two times is considered a record in a matter of five days... hahahaha....  My girl was back too and that makes four of us... *Andy, you got to put on the bibs first... your turn is coming soon!!*

A No Frills dinner at home.... own home.... 
Reanaclaire's cooking, no joke!
Not sure what dish this is called... 
My girl wanted broccoli, I wanted okra... 
In the end, the dish turned out this way!
Steamed two skinny and skinless "kampung" chicken drumsticks....
with red dates and wolfberries...
Somehow after steaming, the deco turned out this way.... 
But the sauce is sweet from the chicken and red dates flavour...
Sauteed some organic greens with olive oil and garlic..... 
Panfried Salmon with fresh lemon juice... 
Steamed Golden Promfret with tomatoes and lemongrass and lots of ginger...
Wonder why it is not so watery...
Do I need to add water to the plate?
Not necessary, right?
Oh, why two types of fish?
The Reason.... is..... because.....
My girl loves fish and dislikes chicken!
And since Jaya Jusco offers good prices on Fish every Thursday, 
I ended up buying three different types... 
All are only RM10 per piece... 
Cheap, kan?

  3. I am not good at cooking except eating. I have seen China's chefs adding some water while steaming the marinated fishes and they would open the steamer few times to scoop the gravy onto the fishes to make them sweeter and tastier.

  6. Mommy's homecooked food is the best! I like your steamed pomfret, but usually mum will fry it, and I will eat a lot of rice with the fish oil alone, hehe..

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
