Home Is Where Our Hearts Belong...

Home is where our hearts are?  Perhaps I should say this..  where there is food, inside or outside the house, we are joined together...  :)

I took off on Monday to have a long weekend with my kids and for once, I woke up early to go marketing.  Aaron joined me as a "carrier"... yes, he shall carry the weight off my shoulders while in the market... hahahaha...

Before going into the market, we had a light breakfast at a coffeeshop... too bad, forgot to take the curry noodles shared by both of us... and after our marketing, we went straight home and blew the trumpet!  LOL..  The rest of the gang woke up and we went to old town for our lunch....

By the time we reached home, it was almost 2pm and into the kitchen I went... and with some help here and there, we managed to scoop up a dinner by 6pm.... Eat and eat... thus the saying.. Food is where our hearts are....
For starters... ahemmm...
Turnip soup...
Someone told me that they are anti-oxident... 
 My sister "donated" some curry chicken.... 
and I gave her some soup in return... hahaha...
 My kids like "Siew Bak Choy" and I added in a packet of enoki mushrooms..
Made a mistake, added a bit too much water...
 My girl requested for steamed fish topped with Tomyam paste...
I put lots of shredded ginger to take away whatever smell...
 Bought a steamed salted chicken from the famous shop in town...
I cut it up... but the cutting up process was kind of messy!
Ok, here they are anyway.... 
Not nicely arranged yet.. 
 Someone looks like he was already drooling by the time the dishes were laid on the table...
And the "drooler" ended up washing the plates after the meal....
hahahaaa...

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
