Sang Choy AKA Lettuce For Chinese New Year

TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!!
Seeing this pot of Lettuce means it is the festive season again!!

My friend's agriculture farm is blooming with these beautiful pots Lettuce at this time of the year again, Chinese New Year is just around the corner, in fact just a week away.   Many of us are now very busy in the kitchen or busy doing some last minute shopping at the malls or online.  I know someone is busy doing some last minute buying her clothing online, no time to go visit the malls and secondly, she told me online shopping is cheaper.  But I do not always agree... cos recently I have bought one dress and I have given it away two days ago... Cannot wear at all... LOL... 

Oh, back to my pot of Lettuce... I ordered 5 pots of this Pesticide free Lettuce from my friend and many orders have since come in too...  I like this pot of Lettuce cos it is very fresh and sweet too, goes so well with my favourite dish Ju Hu Char!  Last year I bought a few pots too and given them away as gifts... Chinese love this vegetable cos of its name too, it is called Sang Choy and it means "Alive and Active!"  LOL... 
No pesticides or chemicals sprayed... 
Can eat in Peace... 
LOL.. 

And it can still bloom and bloom... 
And my friend's treasures.... 
Thousands of them!
A very successful harvest indeed!
One pot of this Pesticide free Lettuce cost around RM15
And the price will be higher by next week... I think!
LOL...

  4. Wow, very healthy!! And pretty too. We have lettuce here that looks like this, but it is called Butter Lettuce. Sorry about the dress. I always have to try mine on. Even though it may look good,seems when I actually have it on, not good.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
