A Sweet Dessert From Her

SWEET TOOTHIE...

A meal is not complete without having something sweet in the mouth.  I am a weird one, I am told cos I can eat between sweet and savoury.  In the midst of eating noodles, I can also handle a bowl of "tong sui" *sweet dessert* in between.  I wonder this is common sight with others or not..... or is it just me? 

The desserts I am showing below, I learn it from a good friend of mine, she has just passed on last Friday, a Blessed Good Friday.  I know her since we were in Form 1, so many years and we are still good friends.  I love being with her, she loves to joke and draw laughter from us...

I am still feeling her loss and ..... I cannot think of what to write... at the moment....

Anyway....

This is one recipe I learn from her.....
Steam sweet potatoes on top and beneath the Nian Gao.... 
Young fresh coconut... 
My mouth watering now... cos I love this combination very much!
Frying them is also nice but oily... 
This is a better alternative for me... 
Combination of the two... 
Sweet Potato with Neen Gao then dip into the coconut.... 
And put into your mouth.... 
Love it?? 
I DO!
Thanks Har.... 
You have left this "legacy" behind for me...

  2. I can switch anytime and many times between savoury food and sweet dessert, no issues at all. This is a good way to remember your friend by cooking a recipe she taught you. I guess you are sharing this sweet dish with all your other mutual friends instead of just eating it all on your own.

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
