Food For The Unwell - Mee Suah

IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I AM HOME SICK...

Not the actual "homesick" sick but at home feeling unwell... Not sure when the last time was, if I were still working, I would have taken two days medical leave and rest at home.  Alas, now every day is a holiday, so sick or no sick, I can rest all I like.

Started with "itchiness" in the throat, stinging and dryness and I filled myself with water and more water.  Water means fruit fuices, lime, hot oatmeal and anything to soothe the dryness... Suddenly appetite was also gone.. the taste buds vanished in thin air... Rice is out of the question, I want to eat something oil-less, clear and soupy....
Late in the evening, my girl bought this home... 
She said this brand is nice.... 
Yes, very familiar brand, I think I ate this when I was a young girl... 
Each bundle tied up with a thin red thread.... 
Would one be enough?
No, I ended up making two for each person... 
Put in lots of greens, meatballs, minced meat and two lighten beaten eggs....
Might not look appetizing but I "walloped" them all.... 
No appetite is an understatement... LOL... 
Oh, I want to get well real fast... 
I haven't even TASTE any Durians as yet!
huhuhuuuu...

  1. Whoah! I also ate from the same box of mee suah with the old God of Longevity brand. I remember this well before Maggi Mee flooded the market. Now I wanna go and buy one box to cook for myself. My servant used to thrown in one egg with half cube of chicken stock. Presto!

    I would advise you to buy a good brand of Lavender's essential oil. It could guarantee to prevent any sore or itchy throats away by just rubbing your affected spot on your neck. I have been doing that for years for instant relief and no more sore throats.

  8. Oh Claire, I am so sorry you are sick. Maybe it is a cold? You are almost never sick! But this looks like a good meal for a sick person...protein, broth, and greens. I hope you get well really fast!

    It is good to eat mee sua rather than rice when sick

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
