Kampua Noodles From SIBU To IPOH

Nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this comment out of the blue in my Facebook!  hahahahaa....

Arthur, if you would have told me earlier that you had sent me something, I would have taken a day off to wait in the house for the postman!!  hahahahaa....  By the way, I don't think he came twice, just one time around 4.33pm...cos the card was in my letter box when I came home after 5pm...
It was indeed a nice surprise after the shock... 
I didn't expect to receive a gift from Sibu yesterday.... 
There are two packets with different flavours..
One with Dark Sauce and one Original....
Inside the big packet are five individually packed noodles that comes with their special sauce.. 
Well, what did I do with them all?
I "sent" them over to another destination...
Yes, to my mother's place so that the noodles will be perfectly cooked!
My mom is an expert when it comes to cooking noodles... 
Not too soft, not so soggy like what I would end up doing... hahahaa...
See, got desserts some more... 
Sweet potato ginger "tongsui" to accompany the noodles...
Plus home-made green chillies!
Presentation might not be as nice as those sold outside in stalls or in cafes...
But what more can I ask....
Free noodles from the Sibu Food Mayor... (THANK YOU!)
And delicate hands that prepare them with passion for the hungry hearts...
Even my daughter (quite a picky eater) gave a Thumbs UP while eating!!

    2. Kampua King sends out so many? If some do not know you, they really thought you are one of the shareholders or the CEO behind the kampua manufacturing! hahahaa... Not bad eh.. they should supply you with the packets, they are really nice, my sister, mom and even my girl have some praises for them!

    3. Glad everybody love it! Ask you all to come, so sombong! Don't want to come so no choice lor...have to send to everybody to taste.

  8. It must be a very nice surprise for you. So nice of your friend in SIbu to send them. I did not know that there are instant kampua noodles. Are they only sold in Sibu?

    Wow, your mother is such a good cook. The presentation is better than those prepared by some of the noodle stalls I frequent here. May I ask how old is your mother? She cooks so well, even go to the extent of preparing minced pork, pork meat balls and lettuce to garnish the noodle. You are so blessed. :)

    1. Unfortunately, yes. Only in Sibu. And limited stock available. Have to order ahead.

      Delete
    2. Can order online, Arthur or do we have to go through you next time? You really should think about it, getting orders and making some money so that you can tour far far.... good idea, yes?

      Delete
    3. Can go to their Facebook page - The Kitchen...but expensive to send lah!!! Average Poslaju charges - more than cost of each pack of the noodles. Just eat Maggi. If buying a lot, better fly over - Air Asia, may be even cheaper to do that!

    4. Thank you both for all the answers.

  9. Saw this in FB (at home) and I have to come here first thing in the morning to comment.. The noodles look delicious babe... Oohh the sauce and seasoning already included hor.. I thought just the noodles, and your mum season it herself.. Was about to ask what your mum used, coz I like cooking noodles too, and I only use oyster sauce, soya sauce and pepper, kekekeke...

    1. I also never thought got seasoning included also... we actually separated them out.. one plate with the supplied seasoning and another plate with my mom's own garlic and sesame oil... My mom normally fried the garlic and some shallots, then add in sesame oil a bit, no oyster sauce, just hak yau little bit and pak yau for taste... :) If hardworking, do some minced meat, vege and fish balls to accompany.. if more hardworking, wrap some wanton meat to go with it.. hahahaa..

  12. Yum yum! Haven't tried kampua noodles before, how did it taste different from wantan mee? *I know Arthur will surely whack me saying they're the absolutely different!* haha

    1. These kampua are now individually packet-ed while wanton noodles are not... when we cook them, we have to rinse the wanton noodles whereas kampua ones, there is no need to rinse... when it comes to texture, wanton noodles are springy while kampua is softer and smoother in texture... this is what I notice..

  15. We like the Sarawak type of mee..there are 3 places that we frequent here in KK just to have our Sarawak mein. They usually top with minced meat. This one packed with sauce are so convenient.

    1. Each place has their own special sauce and flavour, right? Yes, I didn't realize that they were individually packed until I opened them up...

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
