Sourish Soup For Both Lunch And Dinner

SOUPY DAY... for two meals.  

My neighbour's wife who is stranded in KL called me every now and then and our normal topic will somehow land on Food, homecooked Food.  She gave me an idea on what to cook, taught me how to do it and yesterday I got it done!  LOL... 

Boiled a pot of soup putting in pork ribs, two tomatoes, two big onions, one carrot and the main ingredient is the preserved salty vegetables aka Chinese pickled mustard (Char Choy in Cantonese).  This is my son's favourite pickled vegetables and I usually cook it with minced meat to go with white porridge.

Preserved Char Choy can be cooked in multiple ways...

The other condiments... 
An appetizing soup cos it is sourish.... 
Had this for my lunch....
For dinner, I added in Mihun.... 

And fried two pieces of fish to go with the noodles....
One piece of Garoupa and smaller piece of cod.... 
My share of the fish after giving some to my neighbor....
A very satisfying dinner on a rainy evening!


  1. Yes, I love this soup too! The sourish soup will make one want to go for an extra plate of rice!!! I love fish, just fried like that is good! More than meat actually!

  2. Wah, very luxury meal with cod fish and garoupa fish. They are expensive fish! Your neighbor is so blessed to receive the fish from you. Very appetising soup! Yummy meals! How did your neighbour's wife get stranded in kl?

  3. The soup looks the best to me, I would eat several bowls of it!

  4. This is one of our favourite soup. I have 2 big char choy in my fridge ready for boiling soup anytime. Yes, very nice with bihun.

  5. I like char choy and I believe it is an ingredient in Szechuan hot and sour soup which is one of my favorites.

  6. I can eat just very crispy fried fishes as a meal without rice. Yours looked yummy!

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

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
