Invitation To A Humble Dinner

AARON is home for a short stay and this time he said he preferred to take more homecooked food than outside food, if we could help it.   The first night we had our homely dinner outside as in my previous post, nothing elaborated or much flavoured... just a simple meal.

And the next day, before I could even think of what to cook for him, my sister-in-law beat me to it.  hahahaha.... She invited the both of us to go over for a humble dinner in her house.... Humble or simple meal, we were all ready to go!  Anything homecooked is Very Fine with us!

When we saw what was laid on the table, I exclaimed... "Wahhhh... this is called Humble Meal?  I wonder how many dishes if it is not a humble meal... hahahhaa... "  We were famished just by looking at the dishes on the table!
Yummy Yam.... my favourite dish!
Sweet sour porkie...
Steamed Golden Pomfret... 
And Lotus soup with peanuts....
So... this was our Humble Meal for the evening...
Indeed we were Blessed for the scrumptious homecoming dinner!


  1. So sweet of your sister-in-law to invite you all to a scrumptious home cooked dinner. Aaron must be very happy to have such a good meal in the wonderful company of his Auntie.

    1. Yes, indeed he is... homecooked food he likes best!

  2. Nice! That ku lou yok caught my attention the most.

  3. Wahhhhhhhhh!!!! That is humble? I wonder what it is like when it is not humble!!! :D

  4. Yes, I appreciate this type of home cooked dished the most. Your SIL is so great in cooking. I like the yam dish too.

    1. I love anything she cooks.. me lazy ma! hahahaa

  5. My kind of comfort homecooked food. Looks great indeed & love them to bits. Yummsss!!!!

  6. so nice being invited for a home cooked dinner.. maybe your SIL sensed Aaron's wish or he actually told her unintentionally?? haha.. I like the yam and sweet & sour pork!! slurps..

    1. No, she didn't talk to him till that night .. but then who doesn't like homecooked food especially they are deprived from that for a long time? hahahaa

  7. I can understand why Aaron wants to eat home cooked food sometimes. It has mama's love inside! Now I recall back when my mum was alive, I used to visit Penang and my parents often took me out for special dinners until I had to tell her that I wanted to eat at home. Mummy's cooking has the warmth and love inside the ingredients.

    My aunties never invited me to eat at home. I must be terrible. LOL

    1. hahahahaa... Cos you got mama to take care of you.. no need aunties... my sister in law is a good cook, always like us to go back to her house...

  8. Lotus soup with peanut, i love, 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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
