Confinement Dishes At O'Cafe, Canning Garden, Ipoh

ONE OF MY EX-TREASURY COLLEAGUE WAS BAPTIZED RECENTLY.... When she told me that she was going to be baptized last Saturday, I was very surprised and of course, very Happy!

We know each other since 1990... we worked together in the same department and have been friends since.  Then  14 years later, both of us were transferred to two different government departments, I went to JKR and she in Land office.  But that did not deter us from keeping in touch every now and then... and as I said just recently, she was Baptized and now she is my sister-in-Christ!

This definitely calls for a Thanksgiving dinner... LOL... We did not decide on the place till she arrived... We were still thinking of where to go and when I mentioned confinement food at Canning Garden, she jumped to the suggestion with joy.  She simply loves those type of Chinese confinement dishes even we were past our giving birth period!  LOL....

We called up another ex-Treasury colleague of ours and three of us had a good time catching up and chatting till the shop owner came to "inform" us that it was time to close for the day... that was 8.30pm... And we continued our conversation back in my place till a couple of hours later... LOL.. Ladies, ladies... non-stop chatting!

As for the dishes... we ordered 4 for just the 3 of us....
Free range chicken in sweet chinese wine... RM12.90
Trotters in Black vinegar.. RM12.90
Yes, another confinement dish we love though it is a bit sweet here... 
Sambal Petai aka stinky beans which is to detox our kidneys.. ?
But that night the sauce was a bit over-sour... 
And steamed beancurd with minced meat.... 
Brown rice is served instead of white... 
Yes, our four dishes for the three big eaters such as US.. 
That was why we ate till they wanted to "close shop" for the night... 
The bill came to around RM70... 
I think enough confinement dishes to last for a couple of months....

  8. They are all delicious dishes and I didn't know that Tofu & Petai are also confinement food. I only thought Trotters in Black vinegar with lotsa gingers are good for new mummies.

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

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... 

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...
