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.

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 here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
