My Chinese New Year Eve Dishes

SMALL AFFAIR .... This Chinese New Year Eve is a very different one from my 6 decades, different not in terms of food but in terms of company.

A small scale this year, only three of us and I just did one dish... Soup!  The rest of the dishes were "contributed" from my neighbour and my sister-in-law.  I did not go over this year, she has four eating in her house which is a rare sight, all along there are more than ten each year.

Anyway, keep safe and still be happy, that is all that counts!!

For lunch we had these dishes... 
Bak Kut Teh given by my neighbour.... 
Ju Hu Char given by my neighbour too....
So nice of them!
Our CNY Eve lunch.... 
Then around 4.30pm these came...
I ordered from a friend's friend....
This Poon Choy it is called...
It cost RM238...
They gave the pot too....
I just have to heat the gravy and pour over these ingredients....
And then warm it up over the stove for awhile....
Meanwhile, my sister-in-law brought over these for me...
Black fungus with pork belly....
And our dinner for three....with the remaining soup....
We finished the dishes except for the Poon Choy...
There's one third left and I will do something with it one of these days!
LOL.... 
How about your CNY Eve this year?
Any Special Reunion?

  2. You are so lucky to be blessed with so many dishes! I did not have a reunion dinner as I prefer to stay home and stay safe. Hopefully next year's CNY will be back to normal. Let me now wish you Gong Xi Fa Cai!

  5. Ah, at least you have some sort of reunion dinner with a total of 3 pax including yourself. All food looks good. The poon choy gives the pot as well, so convenient!

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
