Homecooking Malaysian Style In St Jose

BACK TO NORMAL ROUTINE...

After a week vacation at Hawaii, everything goes back to normal, the young adults go to work and yours truly is back being a home ministeress again.... LOL....

Wake up around 8am, take my breakfast and then wait for baby to get up, which is often around 9am plus or so.  Every two hours, he will take his nap and in between his naps, I will quickly prepare food for adults which is normally lunch and dinner.  Lunch is always simple, sometimes just noodles or bread or when really too busy, it will be online delivery... 

Being here makes me realise that back home in Malaysia, food is so easily accessible... I mean Chinese Asian food, curry mee, prawn mee, wanton mee, fish ball noodles... nasi lemak.. economy rice.. LOL.. you name it, we can get it in Ipoh... whereas over here, we have to do these from scratch or do your own homecooking which tastes similar to the food in Ipoh.... and that was what we normally do..... 

We even have to do our own roasted pork....
And any leftovers will be kept for the following lunch.... 
Frozen dumplings plus some greens and meat... 
Reminds me of Ipoh wanton noodles... LOL...
No meat will be just eggs and greens with Kampua noodles....
I like taking noodles for lunch....
(after this posting, I will start to cook Taiwan noodles!!)

Dinner is normally a two dish thing.... 
Assam sambal fish curry... 
TEAN packet bought over from Malaysia.... 
Stir fry kailan with prawns and leftover roasted pork....
Capsicum from the garden.... 
On another day, another two dishes....
Pork ribs with radish..... sweet and sour.... 
Another spicy dish to go with the meat....
Yeah, that is the roasted pork we did.... 
Looks like a lot of dishes... but as usual two only...
Goes with pumpkin rice.....
And on another evening, just chicken claypot rice.... 
With spinach.... and cherry tomatoes from the garden.... 
Simple food and yet satisfying on cooler evenings now....
Winter is here!

  1. Your noodles look so good! Yes, here, we sometimes roast our own pork at home too, instead of going out to buy. You cooked chicken claypot rice? Wowww!!! I'm impressed! Your fish curry, pork ribs...is that asparagus with the prawns? Everything looks yummy!!!

    Btw, have you checked your Facebook page? There is this Korean guy, a famous Youtuber - he went to Ipoh. I shared the link to the video on your Facebook page. There are others of him in Ipoh too - you can go to his channel and see. Don't miss home too much! LOL!!!

  2. The food looks so good! What is the baby eating now? It has always seemed to me that you have so many more places to eat in Ipoh than we do here.

  3. True that we are blessed with food abundances. Can easily get whatever we want here.

    Life pretty busy for you over there. Taking care of baby, preparing meals. Take care.

  5. Fantastic dishes despite looking simple and homely. Taking care of baby and preparing meals are not an easy job. I like to have noodles for lunch too.
