Simple Dishes For A Family Of Four

Marketing in dry and wet market is easily accessible now at the area where we are staying... I do not have to go to the supermarkets in the malls as much as before... Now I know of several shops that sells fresh poultry and another two shops that sell greens and other essential stuff needed for cooking... Well, that leaves no more excuses...

I have to start from the basics again, get used to cooking the simple dishes first and then referring to those chef bloggers for more complicated recipes! hahahaa.. Hold on to those first... One step at a time... as long as no complaints from the eaters, I would take a step further along the way....
Start simple cooking... with greens and meat...
Fried rice with two types of eggs... salted eggs enhance the flavour.... 
the kids love it!
 My boys miss the minced meat with "tong choy"
So here it is....
Simple greens...
 Sweet sour "skinless" fish after frying...
hahahaa...
Four dishes this time...
They requested for Pumpkin soup...
That one is no more a problem for me...
hahahaha...
And... as usual..... A"welfie" before the eating starts.... 
Mission accomplished!

  2. Hahhhh!!!! The fish got stuck to the wok eh? Skinless! Hehehehehe!!!!! Pat it dry with some kitchen towel, heat the wok till very hot, pour in the oil and wait till it is very hot...let the fish down into the oil slowly - do not move it till the spluttering sound has subsided - in the meantime, use the ladle to splash some of the oil onto the other side of the fish. Push gently till it comes free...and then, flip to fry the other side. No problem one, sure will not stick...so your fish will still have skin! :D :D :D

    I always prefer marketing in wet markets than supermarkets. Cheaper and fresher.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
