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....

  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.

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

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
