My Main Ingredients Meat, Eggs And Greens

TWO DINNER MEALS...  on two different weekdays last week.... 

I still go out marketing every two or three days, my residential area has a dry market where one can drive into the market cos it is just a rectangle and not many people go there.  Firstly, there are not many stalls and secondly, the prices are slightly higher than those sold in the big markets.  I don't mind paying a few cents higher, it is nearer, cleaner, less people and easy parking.  But of course, the selection is also limited.... 

What I normally buy is meat, chicken and pork, no fish, seafood is out... so there is always no fish in my meals.  

Similar dishes.... meat and eggs are always seen.... 
With bitter gourd...
Homegrown long beans and okra.... 
Diced potatoes with minced meat/fish paste and tomatoes...
My kids love potatoes...
Another dinner meal.... this time with black beans chicken soup... 
The rest of the dishes are similar... 
Eggs with homegrown chives cooked with tumeric powder... 
Anyone tried this before?  LOL.. 
Broccoli with  my homegrown okra... again!
I added in some mushrooms... 
My kids requested for potatoes again...
This time I sliced them piece by piece... 
and again with minced meat...
Chinese dishes are easy to cook 
but only takes more time to prepare and lots to washing up!


  1. How come seafood is out? Because the market doesn't sell fish. I am a potato lover too. All your homecooked dishes look so tasty. I have not tried eggs cooked with chives and tumeric powder before.

  2. By the way i had left comments in all your previous posts too :)

  3. These three ingredients meat, egg, greens are good enough.

  4. You plant so many vegetables? I am getting lazier and lazier, will just go out and buy. Just do simple weeding to exercise and to pass the time.

  5. Yeah my family seldom eat seafood too. :D

  6. I can see why your kids want the potato dish with minced meat; it really looks delicious! I want the recipe!

  7. I love to eat potatoes too! Well done are growing your own Vegetables!

  8. Your dishes all look good to me and if I am invited to join, I will ask for more rice. LOL!

  9. I used to go to a nearby wet market. Less than 15 minutes drive. Smaller but people is friendly. Have not gone to for few months now. Now I just go to nearby shops to get my stuff.

    Nice homey dishes. Yes, Asuan foid is the best. Lol.

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
