Malaysian Flavours With Uncle Pou Wok, Johor

WE RESTED FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS after our return from our one day trip in Singapore... *let the driver rest first* ... then only we went out for a simple dinner at Uncle Pou Wok.  Using Waze, we managed to find the place, actually it was our second time there, the first time was a two years back.  Upon reaching, the place was pretty crowded and we had to sit on the parking bay outside the shop.  Actually I rather sit inside the shop, away from the pollution... *kiasu mode*.... Ok, let's not be so particular....
Pou Wok is famous for their Hokkien Noodles aka Tai Lok Mee...
A very Lardy Dish!
Salted Egg Bitter Gourd.... 
Braised Yong Tow Foo... 
And a Small Size Yue Tau Lou aka "Fish Head Soup" with lots of goodies inside... 
Food for four.... 
See... we were "parked" on the road... haizzz.... 
This is Malaysian Flavours!

    1. It is not really steamboat... just a hot pot soup... nothing added individually..

  3. Quite normal right for some restaurants to put their tables outside on the pavement to accommodate more customers. I would be sweating buckets sitting outside eating steamboat.

  6. I prefer air con place. If sitting outside without air con or fan, I will have to take a big handkerchief to wipe my sweat. Or else the sweat will add flavour to the food! Ha ha.

  7. I would not mind eating outside but then again, pollution is the concern.

    Hokkien noodle. My least favourite because it is a messy noodle to take. The black sauce and mess. Haha. Reminded me of my Jay. He is a messy eater and one night he had Hokkien noodle. Black mess all over his mouth. Haha.

  8. This Salted Egg Bitter Gourd is such a unique dish and I would love it.
    I always have to eat my Hokkien Noodle fix at KL's best shop in Damansara Utama. Eat now and worry later is my style.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
