Our Homecooked Seafood Dinner For Four

HOMECOOKED... but not cooked by yours truly!  I rather be a "supplier" than a cook, it is better to stay that way.  LOL... 

Another one Rice-less meal for 4 persons.  All we got to do is just finish the 4 dishes, no leftovers were allowed.  And that suits us just fine!  We had our early dinner as usual, nothing later than 5pm and by 6pm, we would be out walking in the mall to shed off calories.  Alas, it is not going to be like that for this week onwards.  Since another outbreak in Kedah and Sabah last week, we have to be vigilant of our moves again... sigh... so much for thinking that Mr. Covid was under control.... 

This meal was taken way before the Election in Sabah... we were so happy then, we thought of having state to state holiday but now we have second thoughts.  Just when we thought it was safer to move around and now this again.... we have to take extra precaution again.  Less meet-ups and more own home cooking from now on.... 
Four dishes for the blessed four...
Big tiger prawns bought at the night market...
RM45 per kilo and there were 15 big prawns...
My friend cook half and kept half for another day...
Steamed eggplants planted from her own garden...
Eat without fear of pesticides....
Long time I did not eat this type of clams... aka Lala...
My friend did a fantastic job cooking this....
She put in lime, kafir leaves, chilies and coconut water!
So sweet... no gravy left by the time the clams were finished...
Our seafood dinner taken a couple weeks ago...
Now all I can do is to salivate...
When shall we have this type of dinner again???

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

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
