Homecooked Meals With Mary In Aberdeen

WHEN IT COMES TO MEALS,  it is much cheaper to do own cooking than eating out.  Meaning most of the time, we do our home cooking, breakfast, lunch and dinner.  A lot more frugal this way and of course, can get to taste Asian food especially for people like yours truly here.  My kids and I are blessed with Chinese food cooked by Mary, she is always inviting us over for meals!
Mary's delightful dinner for us....
All smiles before the indulgence.... Mine is the hungry grin! Lol...

Well, what goes round must come round and one evening I invited both of them to come to our place for a simplevdinner.  Homecooking is much cheaper and a better option than eating out.  Over here in the cold weather, I tend to get hungry very fast! Keep looking for snacks and I was so thankful when Mary brought over three packets of her Aberdeen moon cakes made from her own recipe!  She makes them once a year especially for this moon cake festival and orders keep coming in many days before the festival.  I normally don't eat much mooncakes back in Malaysia but Mary's mooncakes are very addictive.  I can easily finish one mooncake at one go!
Mary Moh's freshly baked mooncakes.... Fresh from the oven....
Dinner for six... Just Assam cod fish curry, ginger mushroom chicken marinated in brandy, kale with anchoives and ABC soup....
Before and after dinner.... A cup of Ipoh Hazelnut coffee and mooncakes for fellowship!

  1. The design on Mary's mooncake are very well defined. I note the serving spoon in every dish👍👍

    I love mooncakes but not ones with fatty pork but I have not try snowskin and jelly mooncake. Perhaps, I will get the opportunity to make mooncake in the near future.

    What is an ABC soup? I am only familiar with ABC desserts. Ipoh hazelnut coffee sounds exotic!

  4. You know, you can hardly find fresh from the oven mooncake in Malaysia anymore. Have to go to Aberdeen to get fresh and delicious mooncake!

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
