Reanaclaire Cooks-Potatoes Meat Patties And Ju Hu Char

MOST DAYS WE DID OUR COOKING AT HOME.... As my BIL used to say, "we are in the land of aplenty"...everything is easily accesible over here in the grocery stalls.  A good thing for me too cos I am all for Chinese food, I would miss my homecooked dishes very badly, they called me a "rice pot" (farn toong) cos I like to eat rice every other day at least!

My day starts off normally with a light breakfast, a long banana or a piece of toadted bread with Skippy peanut butter.  That is it...see, I am a very simple eater.... Hahahaaaa...

After my breakie, I will take out whatever needs to be cooked for lunch and dinner "a 2-in-1" meal....whatever we cook for lunch, they will be for dinner too... 
 
Most of the time, there are at least two dishes and a soup but today, just two enormous dishes....
I made some potatoes with mini sized burgers made from scratch...
Notice that the US potatoes here are softer and more "absorbant" if you know what I mean...
And another dish that I craved for is this...."sengkuang" aka "Ju Hu Char"
My auntie can cook this real good!  And fresh lettuce are available too!
Lastly and not least, we boil some corn and raddish soup as well...
Oh, that is not all... My friend baked this!
Lemon Squares!!
Yummy!!!  Our meal is complete!
When it comes to food, I am very contented cos I can have Chinese and Western over here anytime! :)

  10. I think you found nice potatoes. Honestly they have too many types of pumpkins, apples and potatoes in US until we need to memorize their names and origins. Some are hard like rocks so the folks know which type is for which usage and cooking.

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
