Steamed Rice And Chicken In Mini Cooker

I DON'T EAT OUT MOST OF THE TIME, only in the mornings or lunch... so most evenings, Reanaclaire does cook if nobody buys her dinner... hahahaa...  Since I have much free time now, I do like to venture into homecooking dishes and it is so unfortunate that my kids are not with me nowto enjoy MY homecooked food.... Not sure it is their loss, now come to think of it... It might be the other way round... hahahaha...  *Thank goodness we don't have to eat Mom's cooking!*  I wonder if they think like that... OK, I don't think they do cos they always say... Yummy, Mom... hehehee... Always trying to make their mom happy, I suppose! 

I love this retirement gift very much, given by my colleague... she understands me very well... this mini cooker is very useful... suits me real fine!
I could steam a chicken drumstick using this mini cooker...
I marinated the chicken drumstick for a couple of hours 
before steaming it together with the rice....
Save electricity and cleaning up wok!
I put a lot of red dates and wolfberries... so sweet and savoury at the same time...
Then some greens to balance up.....
Yes, corn soup too to sum them up together to make our dinner complete....
That was our dinner... for me and my girl!

  2. Ahhhhh!!!! I was just going to ask - you ate all that alone? Hmmm...I wonder how it is like when your girl is not home. When alone, I would just have some cookies or biscuits, eat bread...fry any leftover rice or cook instant noodles. So lazy to do anything.

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 …
