Flower Crab Noodles

 
 Guess what's hidden underneath the crab?

Last weekend I bought a packet of Koka noodles from Jaya Jusco, it was my first time buying this brand after hearing or should I say, reading so much about it in the blogs. Out of curiosity, I cooked it for tonight's dinner. My girl was most happy for she simply loves packet noodles unlike yours truly here.

To enhance the taste of the soup, I bought one "Flower Crab" as a condiment... to my shock, one crab alone cost RM6.60! I should put it back after weighing it... LOL... but haiyah, what the heck, once awhile, it wouldn't hurt to pay a bit more to enjoy to the fullest, right?

Here it is.... my bowl of Koka noodles with Flower Crab.....
My extra plate of greens to go with the bowl of noodles!
Normally I will cook the noodles separately from the soup...
With boiled water, I soak the noodles and let it soften...
Then I rinsed it with some cold running water....
And finally, put the noodles into the boiling soup....
Well, I guess this is the most expensive bowl of noodles I ever cooked at home....
No more Flower Crab next time though the soup was amazingly sweet!

  1. Ya, i did my noodles like the way you do it, to get rid of the wax or what. Never buy flower crab cos my son is allergy to it but with the black ones, he is ok. Funny. Wow, expensive the crab. I would rather buy char sio, meat & fish balls and fried an egg.

  2. So cheap, the crabs. Can't get those sea crabs here, not laku. Everyone prefers the mud crabs but those are so so expensive. I can't afford. Sobssss!!!! :(

    1. What flavour your noodles? Use prawns, one or two enough, will also make the soup really sweet and it is much cheaper too.

    2. My girl doesn't like prawns... I bought the chicken mushroom flavour.. nothing spicy... next time just put egg and fish balls and vege...

  6. Call me jakun, I was shopping at Jusco and weighed 2 pieces of (not very big) salmon, the cost close to RM30!! I wanted to put back after weighing (and the fella already put inside the plastic bag), but malu and scared kena curse, so die die put back in my basket and paid for it..

    The soup must be very sweet and tasty, yumm yumm.. What else you put together to boil with the crab? Chicken? Ribs? If you ask me to guess what's inside the bowl, I would guess vegetables, assorted balls and pork/fish slice.. Ngam ahh?

    1. You are no Jakun.. Salmon is expensive one... but there are two types.. one is around RM49 per kilo and one is RM55 or so... not so sure of the price exactly.. I always buy the cheaper type.. in fact I bought one last week, around 6 inches long, it cost only RM7 something only... maybe you chose the expensive type. :) Never mind, die die also eat and enjoy first.. hahahaa...
      No, nothing inside the bowl except for the crabs and vegetables!

    2. Ala, hehehehe.. Ask us to guess what's underneath and now say nothing pulak.. I thought I saw something like pork/fish slices.. One bowl full of goodness, I guess you guys slurped everything dry..

  10. Your last photo of the crab, vege and noodles really look like those sold in hotels for more than Rm30. Must taste great!
    Rm6.6 for a flower crab I think is okla not super expensive. Once a while enjoy more and eat like in hotel at home.

    1. Yeah, compared to outside.. this one is definitely cheaper! :)

  11. I love all crabs whether soft shell crabs or black crabs. They are fragrant to make any soup and sauce sweeter! Lately my hands started to develop red itchy marks after eating crabs. I think old age is developing allergies for me! Sobs!

    Crabs are getting more expensive these days. Maybe we should start catching them ourselves from the swampy land.

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 …
