Gleeful Expressions On Homecooked Dinner And Durians

ALONG THE HAWKER STALLS AT TAMAN PERLING, something wonderful caught our eyes! Yes, durians!! In fact three stalls were along the same road and we were told to go to the "Uncle Old Man" for his durians.  Soon we were driving home happily with our small loot of six durians for a sum of RM75.  The price was Not too bad compared to the ones we ate previously along the Sutera road...

It is not all about outside food, there were a few evenings where yours truly utilized the kitchen hall to whoop up some simple dishes especially when the yellow desserts were in the house!
 Opening the yellow loots and couldn't-resist look!
King of the fruits!

And one of their favorite dish for one of the evenings.... 
Minced meat with tomatoes, big onions..... 
And lastly add in the fried potatoes... 
And ended up like this.... 
Boiling old melon soup to go with the dinner... 
Cooling for the body after the yellow desserts..
One of our dishes for a few evenings.... 

Goes well with a pot of ........
Porridge!!
Peanuts porridge, salted egg and roasted porkie!
Another night Chicken rice with Durians!
And their gleeful looks night after night... 
hahahahaha.....

  6. A durian galore! Enjoy 😀

    I never had cooked durian in a meal. The only cooked durian I had was a homemade durian bingka, it was soooo good but I only had it once.

    1. Wow.. durian bingka? Is it some sort of cake? By the way, do you own a blog? I cannot trace it over here at google plus..

    2. I think it should read as Bingka Durian. It's a local kuih made from glutinous flour, sugar, eggs and durian. Traditionally, it's baked in a brass dish lined with banana leaves, cooked over a charcoal dish.

      I don't have a blog yet.

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...
