An Egostic Mom!

After a dose of the cough mixture last night, I couldn't get up at 6am this morning despite the alarm beeping loudly... I switched it off and drowsily, I hit the pillow and was in dreamland again. When I finally opened my eyes, it was 8am!! Gosh, my office starts at 8am and I was still in bed!

Ok, never mind lar... drowsy ma, what to do.. at least I went to work, right? Sick as I was, I still drove to office because of my conscience and my responsibility... ahem... ahemmmmm... cough... cough... ahemmmmmm... hate this phlegm!!

Tell me one thing.. sick as I was, why do I still have such a good appetite? I was yearning desperately for rice, rice...RICE!! Thinking of that motivated me to work fast-fast.... and upon reaching home, within an hour or so, these three dishes were laid on the table... (capable or not? ahemmmmmmmmm ...throat itchy la)
When my girl saw the dishes, she exclaimed, "Wa...!!! Looks good!"
But half way through the meal, she said...
"Mi, why the dishes moe mei geh?"
(Why all the dishes so tasteless?)
ooopss!!... I realized I forgot to put salt...
no wonder, I thought it was due to my taste buds gone tasteless..
And my reply......
"Don't eat so saltish, no good for body!"


  1. Lupa put salt? Wakakaka... nvm... sometimes I oso lupa. After cook, when discovered that I forgot to put salt, i just add after that while eating. (lagi unhealthy!)

  2. hahah wei not salty nevermind...still can put kicap..if u taruk 2x salt then cham lo...langsung kenot eat leh

  3. she forgotten, forgive her, add some yourself...
    hope you get well soon. take care.

  4. Don't worry, the baked bean itself is already very flavourful. As for the fish and broccoli, can add 'bak yau' mah...

  5. Hahaha!! have a very good reply to her. A pat for you on the back, Claire and hope you are in better health now.

  6. hahahaa.... don't eat too much salt, yeah? however, you are really a capable mom even when you were ill.

  7. cleff: like that also can ? can put soy sauce but i didnt.. lantak la!

    kathy: but i also didnt put cos half way, going to finish already..

    anne: i cook, not her. haha.. she knows how to eat only.. hahaa..

    pam: yeah, can add one but we didnt.. just eat.. i eat anything also flat today.. :)

    irene: thank you! but still coughing now and then. ahemmmm...

    miki: cos i felt like eating home cooked food.. :)

  8. Wah really very healthy meal. :)

  9. LOL... you still could clown when so sick!! ha ha ha...
    I am surprised your office starts at 8am!!!

  10. Claire, haha, what a clever cover up:D Hope you feel better soon.

  11. No harm done, I think you could use the salt shaker on them? Wow, Claire, you went to work AND cooked all this food???? Did you get in trouble for being late? How are you feeling today? Does your girl ever cook? Are you teaching her?

  12. The fish, no need salt and the baked tomato sauce already...and broccoli - just boil, very sweet and need to add salt. But do not over boil, serve still nice and crunchy.

    Maybe you always eat out, so taste buds spoilt already - anything and everything not salty enough...and no msg, not nice.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
