Three Types Of Dumplings

DUMPLINGS DAY.... 

I love dumplings, from young till now, however, as I age, I cannot eat as much as I used to during the yesteryears when I was young.  LOL...  Those days I could eat 2-3 without feeling any bloating in the stomach but now if I eat like this, I think I won't be able to eat anything else for the day.  One big dumpling can last me throughout the day so I try to refrain eating much cos I want to save some space for other food!  

Today during lunch time, my friend bought 3 types of dumplings for me to try.  After steaming them hot, we shared them, I try to minimise my portion but eventually, I ended up eating the most.  If I want to have dinner, I better do my 30 minutes miracle walk... I have been following the walk on youtube ever since the lockdown period, believe me, it is really good for seniors... like me!  Initially, I tried doing 20 minutes, then slowly, increasing it to 30 minutes and 40 the most.  Feels so good after the "walks" at home, really have to keep fit after all the eating and sitting during these three months plus.

Oh, back to the dumplings... here they are....

Three types... on the right is Indonesian Bah Chang....
The darker colour is the normal local one...
and two yellow ones is called the Alkaline dumplings
also known as Kee Chang in Hokkien...
The difference between the local and Indonesian dumpling is the rice...
the Indonesian dumpling consisted of mashed the sticky rice and the beans together,
the ingredients inside is almost the same as the local ones except this one has two cilipadi inside..
So it is sort of spicy.... 
Something different... 
Anyway, I prefer the sweet ones... Kee Chang!

  2. My favourite is nyonya chang. Kee chang, my late mum liked, she used to dip in sugar and eat. Would buy nice ones for her from Kuching. I do not have a problem with 2, never had 3 or more at one go. My post on TWO types coming soon in my blog.

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
