Sang Choy AKA Lettuce For Chinese New Year

TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!!
Seeing this pot of Lettuce means it is the festive season again!!

My friend's agriculture farm is blooming with these beautiful pots Lettuce at this time of the year again, Chinese New Year is just around the corner, in fact just a week away.   Many of us are now very busy in the kitchen or busy doing some last minute shopping at the malls or online.  I know someone is busy doing some last minute buying her clothing online, no time to go visit the malls and secondly, she told me online shopping is cheaper.  But I do not always agree... cos recently I have bought one dress and I have given it away two days ago... Cannot wear at all... LOL... 

Oh, back to my pot of Lettuce... I ordered 5 pots of this Pesticide free Lettuce from my friend and many orders have since come in too...  I like this pot of Lettuce cos it is very fresh and sweet too, goes so well with my favourite dish Ju Hu Char!  Last year I bought a few pots too and given them away as gifts... Chinese love this vegetable cos of its name too, it is called Sang Choy and it means "Alive and Active!"  LOL... 
No pesticides or chemicals sprayed... 
Can eat in Peace... 
LOL.. 

And it can still bloom and bloom... 
And my friend's treasures.... 
Thousands of them!
A very successful harvest indeed!
One pot of this Pesticide free Lettuce cost around RM15
And the price will be higher by next week... I think!
LOL...

  4. Wow, very healthy!! And pretty too. We have lettuce here that looks like this, but it is called Butter Lettuce. Sorry about the dress. I always have to try mine on. Even though it may look good,seems when I actually have it on, not good.

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?

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
