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.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
