Steamed Chicken, Pickled Cucumber And Durians

HOMECOOKED FOOD ....

Not directly Mama's cooking but from Big Auntie's house.  Aaron loves her signature Steamed Chicken, she has a secret recipe for that and he is always requesting for that dish.  And his request is granted.... all he has to do is get a few durians back to the house in exchange for a yummylicious dinner!  LOL....

Durians are so abundant nowadays, we hear so many 'stories' of this abundance, that some do not dare to eat especially those of us who are Facebook users.  The more we see, the more we refrain from eating.  LOL... However eating moderately should be alright, buying those without branded names should be alright too... and after that, drink more eat more mangosteens or drink fresh coconut water. 

And now the dishes.... 
Best in the world... Homecooked steamed chicken...
Picked cucumber....
Steamed eggs....
Braised pork with radish.... 
And an extra dish to go with the rice!
Before digging in... CHEEZEEE!

  2. I can see why Aaron loves this dish! It is beautiful, she really knows how to plate! So what it it about the durians? Are some of them not good? Do they have many calories?

  4. I couldn't resist a good home cooked meal. Steamed chicken. Must be very good.

    I would refrain from durian and all heart stuff for time being. Been under the weather yesterday. Now slightly better.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
