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!

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

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

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...
