Invitation To A Homecooked Meal

I called up my cell leader around 6pm, wanted to invite her out for a simple dinner.... and to my sheer delight, she told me to go over to her house for dinner instead!  I was more than happy.... hahaha... love homecooked food anytime! 

I was told to go at 7pm and I arrived exactly on time!  Food was already on the table.... and she told me that the dinner was all vegetables and no meat.... Well, that was really FINE with me!  Nowadays I prefer more vegetables to meat....

Due to the yellow lighting in her dining hall, all my pictures turn out this colour.... anyone can help me to edit this to white?  hahahaa... Don't think that is possible, right?
Ok, what's this?
She told me this tastes like Ikan Perut but without the main ingredient...
(Pickled Fish Stomach Curry)
This dish consist of all vegetables only.. including pineapple...
Really appetizing... I love it!
Another vegetable dish... 
Yellow Pepper with green vege (choy sum), enoki and cucumber!
Very sweet and tasty!
My picture is not doing any credit... 
And this is Otak-Otak... very lemak (rich in santan)
She got it from somewhere.... 
Lastly and not least... a bowl of soup that consists of basil, mint, anchovies and egg....
Yummy!!  So full of nutrients, right?
It is not a simple dinner after all.... 
I wouldn't mind coming by now and then, I told her.....
Just give me a tinkle and
 I'LL BE THERE!!
hahahaaa....

  6. Claire, your timing is impeccable! Nice vegetarian dishes. For the vegetarian perut ikan dish, one can eat many bowls of rice because it is very appetizing. So the otak-otak does not contain any fish meat too?

  7. So nice, got home cooked dinner for aunty. You can use some photo editing software to overcome the 'warm' in the pictures. Try snapseed, a free app.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
