Homecoming During RMCO

WELCOME HOME.... even if only for a short while...

When interstate travelling was approved on the 10th, my kids took the opportunity to make a trip home.  Immediately after work at 6pm, they drove back to Ipoh, reaching here before midnight.  It has been several months since Chinese New Year in February.  They have been working from home ever since the lockdown in March and now they are home, they are still working during the day.  Mommy here has to tend to their meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner.... Isn't that nice?  LOL...

They saw my postings on homecooking in my blog here and now they want to try them all.  Of course, not all... I must have the mood too, right?  LOL... Actually they miss the Ipoh hawker food more than my homecooked meals, no doubt about that.  But due to the RMCO, it is a bit troublesome to go out to eat, we have to write our names and contact number at the hawker centers and for those dine-in restaurants, they use mysejahtera or other scan codes.  Ever since they came back on Friday, we have been eating at home....
They wanted Apom Balik... 
So I did them... 
This time I couldn't get the whole pancake evenly brown... 
But the fillings is still the same...
Add in more peanuts and sesame seeds... 
For dinner, my son requested for potato chicken... 
I marinated the chicken with red wine this time... 
A vege dish with broccoli, capsicum and mushroom... 
Just two dishes for the three of us.... 
And for desserts, I made Herbal Jelly to cool down our body system...

  2. Nothing beats mummy's homecooked!!! You must be thrilled to have them home, sure beats being home alone. Indeed, it is rather troublesome to go and eat out...or buy stuff. Best to stay home, save money!

  3. Apom balik with lots of peanuts, so yummy! Long time didn't cook chicken and potato dish. Working from home is so much convenient, doesn't matter where home is.

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

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

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...
