A Mom With Simple Taste

ACTUALLY I am a very simple eater... times when I do not post up outside food, those drooling and tempting food, that means I am just having a simple meal at home... so simple that many of us do not find them appetizing at all.

This evening I came home after 7pm and since it was quite late, I was too lazy to go to my mum's place for dinner.... I made my own DIY meal that is contradicting to the food posts I put up normally...

I have 5 eggs in my fridge... expensive eggs... just look at that.. hahaha....
Looks like the mouth is missing...
my faithful mug....
filled with quaker oats!
my dinner for tonight....
chomp! chomp!!
Wanna show my kids what their mom takes 
when they are not here with me.... 
Save hard for the money....ahem...ahem....


  1. cham not around u have to take care of yourself more. Make sure eat enough. Dont skimp till gastric.

  2. kathy, mana boleh go hungry... i am very wai sik one... :)

  3. I can take egg sandwich everyday! But pls.. the oats... urgh...

  4. Next time order pizza and eat in front of the tv.. My treat.. Eat well mum :D

  5. merryn: oats for cutting down my cholesterol ... hahaha.. .now i m addicted to it.. a hot drink is what i love..

    andy: hehehe... so nice of you!! i will surely remember this offer!!

  6. Most of the time i have my dinner that way also.. N sometimes just have a drink... Unfortunately nvr loose any kgs.. Lol

  7. I LOVE fried eggs, so this looks really good to me! Now tell...what else do you put on the sandwich, only the eggs? Eggs are so nutritious and full of protein, and quick and easy to fix.

  8. simple but nice. why's the egg expensive? did you go for the ones with those omega's thingie in it? hehe..

    have a nice day Claire!

  9. Claire... u use massimo bread? Looks like massimo. =D

  10. That is actually a very healthy meal and if you continue eating more of it, you will live longer! All that is missing from it is some fruit. Otherwise, next time add in some carrot & celery sticks, or cucumbers & tomatoes......seriously!

  11. Haha! I like that sunny side up! Love eggs no matter how they are cooked! I sometimes just eat oats for dinner! Haha!! And sandwiches with scrambled eggs are nice!

  12. Simple meals can be nice too. I know I always post lotsa good food in fb, and same as you, do not post those simple meals. My simple meal at home could be just plain congee with canned chinese olive shreads or canned choy sum, and a cube of fu yee, or rice with a fried egg and a steamed lap cheong. Yummy too! :)

    Would be sad if you skipped meals and end up having gastric. ;s

  13. Wah!!! You fry two eggs at one go. I wonder if I can do that - I always do it one by one. LOL!!!

    Empty nest now eh? No'll get used to it.

  14. Even when I was in UTP, my mother made simple meals at home ("too lazy to cook more complicated dishes just for two persons lah" she said). My father was always happy whenever I am home because my mother would cook more "scrumptious" meals - my mother always complains how my father made it sound as if she wasn't giving my dad enough to eat. Now that I'm studying abroad... erm... I don't want to think about it. HAHAHA...

  15. the eggs are good looking.. and I usually top with soya sauce and pepper while frying... and also 'giap' bread to eat... hehehe...

  16. I m even simpler. Just eggs only for dinner or sometimes..i just go to bed earlier.

  17. Never mind lah,, once a while simple simple also good ma, you always eat good good outside,, it is time to let your tummy relax lah..

  18. Yes, me too. Simple eater. As long the food is edible, I can accept it.

  19. For a change, it it good. Simple but best.

  20. I may be weird, I like to eat this type of meals than outside good food.

  21. This is one of my favorite sandwiches. Simple and nice! espcially if I add some tomato sauce and mayo, and I toast the bread first hehe

  22. Same here Claire. I did the same thing like you except I have one extra HAM slice...ehhehehhe

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…
