A Hakka Meal Called Lui Char At Bukit Indah, Johor

ONE FINE MORNING, we went for a Hakka meal called Lui Char..  

Before I go on, "morning" in Johor means it is around 11am, so my breakfast is not breakfast and it is not lunch, thus the word brunch is the right word to emphasize the first meal of the day.

I don't know when my girl has a great liking for Lui Char all of a sudden... whenever we are in JB, she wants Lui Char.. Lui Char... and most times we go Taman Pelangi for that.  But this time we found one nearer to our home, the shop is at Jalan Indah 16/4, Bukit Indah, just opposite the Terengganu Curry Fish noodles.  It must be newly opened for we did not notice this shop before and now someone is glad that she can come here for her Lui Char whenever she feels like it.

A few tables were already occupied when we went in... and by the time we finished our meal, the tables were all occupied... That shows either the food is good or many of us now like Lui Char and that includes my son and my girl.  For me, just so-so, I don't mind taking once awhile...

Briefly, Lui Char is a Hakka comfort food of rice, grains and chopped greens...
Can be eaten with Yong Tau Foo and a green herbal mint or ground green tea... 
We ordered a small rice portion... 
She wanted brown rice while I opted for white rice... 
It should be the other way round, right? 
The rice is embedded beneath the fried peanuts, chopped long beans, 
cabbage, spinach and preserved radish.
For sidekicks, we ordered two Tau foo and some fried chicken..
If I am not mistaken, the fried chicken are marinated with fermented beancurd pieces... 
Some like to mix the soup and the rice together, making it soggy...
As for me, I like the dry version and sip the soup every now and then... 
Our Hakka meal which cost RM19... 
Nice and sort-of-healthy, right? :)

  5. Probably my ancestors were not authentic Hakka cos my grandparents had never prepared any Lui Char for us in any of the meals before. The lui char dishes looks very simple.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
