Our First Homecooked Meal In Johor

We did not eat out all the time, firstly it is quite costly and secondly, most of the food are sort of "fattening" too... my sons prefer homecooked food anytime especially they have been "deprived" from them for a doubly long time already.   So ... most mornings, my girl and I will do some marketing at the grocery malls and just a few days ago, I was told that there is one mini market just near my place.  Now there is no more excuse that I cannot cook.... hahahaa...

For the first few days, I just did some simple cooking such as these...

Broccoli with mushrooms and scallops....
Beans with egg....
There were limited bowls in the house then... 
Only two metal plates, one bowl and one big mug...
So my girl ended up eating rice in the big mug!
hahahahaa...
After that day, we bought the whatever is necessary....
A more proper meal was in store....
Since it's just family, I didn't bother to dish out individual bowls for soup...
We do it the "authentic way" .... 
 This time I did cauliflower with mushrooms and scallops...
Sweet sour prawns....

ABC groundnuts soup....
And peeled oranges done by my girl... 
(for the first time in history!)
Thus the photo as proof.. 
Good job!
Welfie...
Our first proper meal!!

  5. i would certainly agree with that.. your two boys have been eating out all the time, and now they have the "Empress Dowager" to stay with them, for sure they would feel like eating something homecooked!! and i would say, the dishes do not need to be fancy, but would definitely taste a lot more delicious than many food they have been having outside.. :)

  6. I wonder if your sons secretly tell their colleagues: "Yay! we get home cooked meals now because we just imported our maid from Ipoh!"

    That's what my colleague kept saying when his mom retire and moved to Penang to live with him.. XD

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

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
