An Oil-less Homecooked Meal In Melbourne

With only a bottle of table salt, how nice can our meal turn out to be? LOL...

 We went to an Asian supermarket to buy a packet of noodles and a bottle of salt. I didn't buy any oyster sauce or something similar cos we are not going to stay a long time and I don't want to waste the spices. Instead I bought a packet of tomyam packet to cook it on the noodles.. and this is what we came up with for our evening meal.

Oh, this meal is without oil as well... that also I want to save money on buying oil just for one or two meals.  LOL....

First I steamed the giant fresh scallops...with the sauce that came out from the scallolps, I used it to fry the noodles and added in some giant prawns.

Then I used the tomyam paste to fry the remainder of the noodles with green vegetables...

My girl pan fried the salmon.... without oil.... with a non stick pan, it is not so much a mess.. hahaha...

Lastly, I blanched the cauliflower and broccoli and stir fry them with the scallops and prawns.... put in some water and let it stew for awhile...
And ta....da....our lunch is born!  LOL...

  3. Yes, yes, cut down on oil, leave out salt and msg...you'll be surprised what wonderful tastes and flavours you will begin to sense - all used to be drowned out before by all the seasonings used.

  6. Healthy meal. Very good move to use the water from steaming the scallops to fry the noodles. Taste of seafood goodness. There should be a little oil coming out from the salmon. Sometimes I just put a chicken thigh with skin on into a wok without any oil and covered it and just cook it like that and when I open the cover the chicken thigh would be covered in its own oil. No need to buy oil at all.

  7. I spot cherries and strawberries to end the meal as desserts, really a delicious and balance meal.

  10. So interesting to cook something Asian away from home. I used to buy ready mixed sauces and cooked for the Americans in USA. They loved it and praised me as excellent chef! LOL.... They didn't know I poured all the sauces direct from sachets and bottles - no cooking skills!

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 …
