Let's Wallop At Home!

My first home cooked meal for my kids in 2013! Yes, finally I have managed to cook a meal for my three kids during this CNY!!  (A very rare occasion and achievement if you know me by now.... LOL... .)

Early morning I went to the market to get the fresh stuff that I need... fish, meat for soup, green vegetables and for desserts, we had Durians!! Well, each time Aaron comes back to IPOH, he will crave for this King of the Fruits... and he was so happy yesterday when he managed to buy the whole lot of 9 fruits for only RM40!  Good BUY, he said.. hahahaha... 

And now... what did this mama here cook for her three grownup kids?
Nai Bak... mini organic greens...
Steamed Talapia... it weighed over one kilogram.... only RM14...
Sweet flesh cos it was very fresh....
Fernie ate most of it including the fish head!
Mixed sourish vegetables... (chap choy)
ahhh...this one was "contributed" by my SIL.... love this dish very much!!
the meal is only complete when there is soup all round...
I boiled watercress vegetables...
with red dates, mutt choe (sweet dates) and dried oysters....
Aaron bought a "treasure box" for me...
Golden Chef New Zealand & Australian Abalone....
Slices of the abalone for the broccoli...
(this is not fine dining... naturally I failed in the deco!)
Durians for dessert and as for me, 
I love to take them together with my rice...
That's our lunch....
Come... say Cheese....
and  Let's Wallop!!

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

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
