A Boodle Fight On A Special Day

BOODLE FIGHT... without bloodshed...

Nothing lost but gain in this Boodle Fight we had on Mother's Day in Sacramento.  Why is it called Boodle Fight?  According to Filipino culture, a Boodle Fight is the military practice of eating a meal, only that there is only military man involved here.  LOL.. 

There is no cutlery served in a Boodle meal... all are displayed on the table and we eat with our hands.  Banana leaves are used to placed on the table, followed by the food... for our special day, we wanted a seafood platter with an exception on beef and fried chicken.  Something similar to the Indian culture, eating on banana leaves.  I am surprised that Filipino has this culture too..... never too late to know... LOL....
Our array of food for eight people only!!

All Filipino styled cooking.... 

Food being arranged by a pretty young lady.... 
While we just looked upon and drooled.... 
Final touches!!
And many pictures before the START!!
Cheering.... 
Singing... 
And Laughter!!
My Belated Mother's Day Post!!
Happy Occasion To All The Mothers!!

  5. Saw a friend's Filipino wife serving this at their house for dinner. They have something like this in Malaysia, all seafood cooked with curry powder but not served on banana leaves - that puts me off and I hear the seafood may not be all that fresh, the cockles are very small...etc...etc...etc...so I have never tried.

  6. I heard of the Filipino tradition. It must be different and excited to experience different way of enjoying food.

    Happy belated Mother's Day to you.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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
