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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
