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!

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
