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)

    Make sure you boil the herbs. To really take out the heatiness.

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

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...

But no, the lobby girl led the way.... passing by here.... and to this.... ....place instead... they looked new to me, thank goodness, only the weather turned us off on the first day, it was Xtremely hot that day and the air con was not working that good... that was why I complained on the 1st day but it was much better on Tuesday... we could stand outside here and have a little chat.... this was the place we stayed for 2 nights... ok lar. . I expected the worst actually... and this was taken tbefore we said our goodbyes.. thank God for safe journeys and a pleasant trip altogether...
