Passion Food To Face The Battle

 Listen to Mama... Must cut off fried stuff, oily stuff and "heaty" stuff... and what makes the saddest of them all is the restriction on the Fruit King, The Durian!  Well, for now at least... and what makes is hard is that durian season is On now!   sigh.... Oh...well....

Another "clear" day for my stomach... no spicy, no oily-ness... just a homemade nutritious soup boiled from fish and minced meat and cooked with lots of greens.... Well, isn't that wonderful diet?  :)  I really have to thank my mother for taking care of me....  (when I should be taking care of her actually!) She makes sure I eat the correct food so as to "combat" the virus that is "attacking" and "making war" in my body system...  (will elaborate more on the war zone once I win the battle!)
Today's menu is "Tau Chim"
Dry Flat Noodles.... 
But once it is cooked with hot water, it becomes like this ... 
Very smooth oil-less noodles....
and topped with lots of greens and protein....
This is what I called "Passion Food"
(Love In The Heart)


  1. Your mom knows what is best for you. Be kiaw kiaw and take less oily food till you are completely fine. NO DURIANS for you for the time being, hehehe.

  2. Hope you are getting better. Your previous Siew Chu Kuat Chuk is very yap mei...sedap lor...

  3. Yes, mam! Though the temptation is there... Will have to refrain.. :)

  4. Angeline, memang sedap... Wouldnt mind eating them again and again...

  5. Mum's cooking always the best. She knows what is good for us. I love my mom very much too.

  6. So this weekend must kwai kwai be at home ok... no durians and no spicy food ok.

  7. Yeap now is durian season again, feels like buying some to make durian crepe... but very lazy these days. So tired after work. Skip it lar.

  8. sometimes after having too much of flavorful and greasy food.. i think i would crave for something like this.. just simple and clear and soupy with lots of greens.. your mum is great!! i like this noodles actually..

  9. aiyohhhh.... durian season and you can see cannot eat them. Take care of your health first, wait for the next durian season.

  10. Angeline: that is why i always tell the younger generation... Eat when you r young and healthy! :) dont wait till old like me... Hahaha...

    Sk: simple and no msg... :)

    Eastcoast: yes.. So sad... Can see cannot touch... Haha

  11. I used to take tau chim when I was young. Guess I must cook it some time.
    Make sure you boil the herbs. To really take out the heatiness.

  12. Mama knows best, you are so blessed to have her to take care of you. If I had to eat this food that she makes, it would be so good, it looks wonderful!!! Claire, you are on the go and working so much, everyone needs a rest to re-charge. How are you feeling now?

  13. That looks good! was your mum who cooked that. No wonder! Hehehehehehe!!!!

  14. That bowl of tau chim looks really yummy...

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…
