Simple And Satisfying...

It is not everyday or often that I take nice and expensive food outside. During weekdays, my girl and I eat very simple and "less costly" food for our lunch and dinner...

Most times we take "nasi campur" (chap farn/mixed rice with dishes)... less than RM10 for both of us... no time to cook really...

Seeing me rushing here and there in the evening, my mum is very concerned about our lack of home cooked food and most days, she will come supplying food with tiffin carrier.... (MUM is the Bestest of the Best!)

Very simple meals... and yet satisfying....

she made some dry wan ton mee...

supplied saltish pork porridge...

and even the "yau chau kwai" (fried ghost) as well!!!
Simple, right?
Mum is a Gem!


  1. the wan tan mee looks like STP kampua mee la

  2. Chap Fan = RM4.00 per serving
    Tai Chau = RM10.00 per serving
    Western food = RM20.00 per serving

    Mum's home-cooked food is...... priceless.

  3. kathy: it is wan ton mee.. but with minimum dark sauce.. the meat is hidden within..

    pam: ditto to that.. :)

    ken: i dont really like.. oily but once awhile ok lar.. hahaha...

  4. Eat cheap food at home then go outside walloped expensive meals. :p

  5. yes yes and healthy. If not, you will gained weight before you know it. When coming to Spore?

  6. The porridge looks yummy...Mum's cook is always the best.
    I definitely mis my mom's home cooked meal...

  7. tekkaus: slave during weekdays..

    medie: memang nice..

    chris: december going! hehee..

    mery: i also miss.. if one day my mum didnt cook for me..

    lena *smile*

  8. So many do not have caring moms who cook for them and bring food, you are very blessed! And her food looks so good!!! Thanks so much for telling me how to find my blog rating, it's the same as yours!

  9. i'm tired and hungry now.... the porridge looks nice and yummy~

  10. Yalor...that was the 1st thing that came to my mind - what smallkucing said.

    Aiyor...have to make time to cook lah. Weekends - cook a lot and keep in single/double-serving portions in fridge - heat up and eat bit by bit.

    Many people eat outside...or cater from shops and when they went for medical check-up - fail big time! So skinny and yet cholesterol shooting through their hypertension. Outside foor - too oily, too salty, too much msg, too...everything!

  11. ginny: congrats!!

    tz: very easy to cook only.. hehe..

    stp: looks like kampua noodles? but actually wan ton mee..
    cook and keep? no la..i seldom take overnight food, few times I took, after eating them, whole night pening, they call it wind.. my body is prone to wind and i get nausea after that.. i cook only when my kids come back.. other than that, my mum normally supplies.. hehehe.. and weekends, i take my girl out for jolly jolly.. :)

  12. Wah, porridge with yau zha kuai is always the best combination! You have a super mum~ hehehe ^^

  13. woot! your mum cooks really nice meals too! Hooray for mums everywhere, including you! XD

  14. hayley: she is to me the super duper best mum!

    isaac: hahaha...thanks!

  15. yeah, homecooked meals are always the best.. i like that noodles, it looks simple but yet very delicious..

  16. Yes, mom is always the best. I have lost my mom when I was 17. No homecook food until I got married. I have a gold medal in cooking skill MIL. I am blessed again.

  17. Wah you're so lucky! Your mom knows how to make the yau char kwai too?? I want to eat! :P

  18. Claire...i like the yar char kuey with time u cook for me need go out eat..ahahhaha

  19. Wah, all the nice homecooked food...there are the best!

  20. I can eat porridge and Yau Char Kwai everyday. They are so easy to digest for toothless tigers.

  21. porriddge looks delicious o....

    im sasa from sabah.

  22. Ooh! I like the dry wanton mee! Yummy! But I don't really like porridge - only eat porridge when I am sick : )

  23. Simple yet they look delicious. These food are perfect for rainy days and when the members of the family are just at home. Can you post the recipes here? It would be much appreciated. Thanks! More power.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
