Fifth Day Of Chinese New Year

FIFTH DAY...  Looks like it is back to normal, no more festive mood.  My kids, my friends... they start working again.  For retirees like me, it is just another normal day, wake up thinking what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.   Just the daily chores, sweeping, washing, cooking, eat, watch TV while dozing off at times and then bedtime.   This is retirement life... sounds kind of boring eh... know why?  Traveling is prohibited!  Sigh... otherwise life wouldn't be so quiet as it is now....

So now it is back to normal, normal means Movement Control Order, only two can dine out.  This morning I bought back food for breakfast instead of eating out...

Felt like eating curry noodles from Ye Sing... 
Days before MCO, their curry sold out by 9 or latest 9.30am...
Nowadays they are still available even at 10 or after... 
This was yesterday's lunch.... 
4 leftover prawn curry from the previous dinner... 
I just added in some greens and one dish is ready... 
Oh, did I tell you about my smart cooker?
I just took it out in full use a couple of months back...
And since then, I don't want to keep it in the cupboard anymore... 
Never realised that it was so so useful!
OK, I will tell more about it... 

Back to this dish, I braised pork ribs, arrowhead, black fungus... 
marinated with fermented beancurd and chili sauce... 
Add in garlic and ginger... 
Cooking time 30 minutes and the dish is done!

  1. Here, we call them Instant Pots, I bet that is what you got. I wait to see what you are making in it! Maybe I will buy one. The curry noodles look so good!

  2. We finished eating all the leftovers from our Reunion Dinner, and all the cakes too. Cookies and snacks only a little but left. Will be gone in no time at all. Ash Wednesday tomorrow, Lent begins - fasting & abstinence.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
