Chai Boey/Mustard Green Soup

AIKKSSS... WHAT A NAME FOR A DISH?

And usually this Mixture-Of-Everything dish is everyone's favourite in my family and I am sure many of us love it as well!

Normally this dish is created after when the festive season is over.  Any leftover of dishes are not to be wasted, they can just go into the pot at one go, add in blanched mustard leaves, dried chillies, tamarind, tomatoes, lemon grass, ginger... 

As for me, I do not have leftover food so I made a special request to my neighbour who goes out very early each morning.  First question to him, "Do you like Chap Choy?" His reply... "Yes, I love that dish!"  Good, in that case, you have to buy some the roasted pork trotter for me!   LOL.... 

He ended up buying a pork trotter and of course, I reimbursed him, he is already so nice to go out early to catch the roasted pork man.... LOL.. Pork trotter cost around RM23 and mustard leaves around RM10.  Never mind the money, the One Dish Dinner satisfied our cravingsss!!

Everything dumped in and get them cooking.....
Boiled till everything turns soft.... 
Add to taste.... 
Very appetizing....
Spicy, sour and savoury!!

  1. This looks like what we call stew. This one would be pork stew.

  2. I love this dish. Will always buy it when I see it but some people say don't buy because it is cooked from leftovers. As long as the leftovers are not dirty and do not have salivas of other people then it is ok for me to buy from outside stalls.

  3. Never had this before. For us, when we say "chai boey", we mean what is left over from a banquet, e.g. at a wedding. Sometimes we do mix some of the dishes...other times, we keep them separate - reheat and eat and eat and eat till all is gone!

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....

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...
