In And Out Homecooked Food

HOMECOOKED AND OUTCOOKED... A mixture of two... 

I like pumpkin soup, it has its own natural sweetness so there are a few ways of cooking pumpkin.  Boil, steam, braise, sauteed, baked, all these can be done on pumpkin.  For me, I like to boil pumpkin soup, adding in tomatoes, big onions, carrots and chicken/pork... oh yes, must add in some peppercorn for a mild spicy taste.  Sometimes I use pumpkin to cook curry, it thickens the gravy, I like that.

So... on this day, I put the above ingredients into the smart cooker, pressed "soup" and I went off to do my chores.  Within half hour, the soup is done!  Just soup?  Then I did the lazy way out, I went out to get some ready cooked dishes nearby... taking a tiffin carrier, I bought back four types of vegetables and 3 pieces of fried chicken.  My meals for the day is completed!! 

Eggs and long beans in one carrier...
Brinjal and hairy gourd in another tiffin....
Besides the dishes, this shop is also famous for their fried chicken... 
And recently, even more famous from a HK actor by the name of Chapman To....
After his review, now we have to queue for these fried chicken..
No thanks to him... many complained... LOL.... 
To avoid the peak hour, I go at 10.45am to avoid long queue... 
The dishes minus the soup above cost a bit below RM20....
Enough for us for one day.... 


  1. You serve your food at home in tiffin carriers? Remember, cannot heat in microwave ah!

  2. The queue consists of local Ipoh people? Cos cannot cross states yet wor. Ok la, more than good enough to eat.

  3. Ooo the fried chicken is good ah?? Good to bring own tiffin when take away. Now I mostly cook at home and some day, order food delivery. Rarely tapau now unless breakfast.

  4. I also like mix and match of home cooked and bought food. More variety and makes life easier.

  5. The actor's good review is good for the business but it means longer queue for the customers.

  6. I love pumpkin too! Very versatile.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
