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.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

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...
