Our Homecooked Dishes And Food In Taman Pelangi

THE KITCHEN IN JOHOR IS TEMPORARY CLOSED FOR NOW.... The cook has gone back to her hometown again.  From now on, it will be opened only during the weekends when the owner is not working, he prefers to cook a One Meal dish for himself, a very simple eater, I can say....
 His own homecooked dinner... 
He said tasty cos it is his own cooking...
And what's more, his mom is not that great either! 

Yes, each time I cook, I take pictures of the dishes so that I can make room for improvement next time... :)
Kapitan Chicken...  I didn't add in santan....
The dish should be thick and not watery like this....
*Learn from error*
 Ponteh Chicken.... 
Same here, a bit too much water added...
*room for improvement*
Simple blanching of broccoli...
Our simple homecooked dinner...
And these were what I took in Taman Pelangi, Johor... 
"Lui Char" ..... not too bad... a lot of ingredients with rice underneath... RM6
Fried Koayteow Johor style.... tasty too!  RM6
And not to be missed at Taman Pelangi is the rojak!
And drowned the food with a big bowl of gingko dessert....
For three bowls of gingko and one plate of rojak, it cost RM17...
Prices are reasonable... not too bad... 



  1. One pot meal can be very tasty when it is cooked by ourselves. This is because the cook appreciates his own effort the best! Good to know you are back safely in Ipoh now.

  2. I am also mostly cooking one pot meal for hubby and myself. Or we will drive over to the hawker centre to have some home cooked meal at our regular stall. I love your gingko dessert!

  3. When I cook for myself, I find that no matter how screw up it is, it will still be good enough and edible for myself. But then, on the other end, no matter how well I cook, I always worry it is not good enough to serve to others. Sendiri cook, sendiri makan, sendiri syok lah...

    1. You are right... anything cook for yourself sure taste good!

  4. Honestly, I think his cooking looks nicer than the mum's. Muahahahaha!!!! But of course, given a choice, I would rather somebody else cooks, I eat...lazy to cook my own.

  5. I like the kapitan and pongteh.. Can just use packets hor.. But can use Coffeemate to substitute for that santan I heard.. Pongteh is just taucu sauce right.. I like pongteh too, with lots of potatoes.. Yummzzz..

    1. I used the packets which my friend sent to me all the way from KL... something different...

  6. Your son homecooked dinner looks tasty. I like all in one pot, so easy & taste great. I am drooling over the rojak. Yummy

    1. hahaha.. Me too.. I never missed having that whenever I am there..

  7. ooh you are already back to Ipoh?? that's a short stay in JB this time.. anyway, regardless the food, I guess it's the gathering of everyone in the family that matters huh?? even lousy food also taste good if everyone's happy.. of course I don't mean your cooking with that lah, hahaha!! ^^

  8. Trial and error. Keep on trying and you will succeed. That is my motto when it comes to cooking. ^^

  9. hard to find rojak with beansprout in it..the bowl of gingko will boost your memery, haaaa..

    1. But not to drink too much, I heard.. gingko is not good if eaten too much..

  10. I also like one pot meals. Less fuss and less cleaning up. Home cooked dishes is always best even though they may not look so glamorous.

    1. Combination is also good.. sometimes eat out and in...

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

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
