Vegetarian Dishes On First Day Chinese New Year

FIRST TIME... on the first day of Chinese New Year, we went for vegetarian set meal at My Home Noodles in Ipoh Garden.  Yes, first time for us to go there during CNY... normal days, yes, I love the food there, price is reasonable and the taste suits me real fine.  During those years when my late mom was around, she used to fry vegetarian meehoon and a mixed vegetables dish called Loh Hon Chai in Cantonese.  For desserts, she would either boil red beans or "Ching Poe Leong"... I really miss my dear mom... ever since she passed on, my siblings and I celebrate reunion in our own separate homes... It is so different altogether...

For this vegetarian meal set, it cost around RM238 and these are dishes we were served...






I don't mind coming again the next year... 
Not so much on the food but family togetherness...

  2. Oh? We never have this practice, vegetarian on the first day. So much food to finish, leftovers from the reunion dinner...have to eat up everything as soon as possible, nothing wasted.

  4. The dishes look so tasty! They even make the vegetarian dish look like a fish! I think the price is reasonable.

  5. These dishes are so pretty, especially the one with purple. Sounds like your Mom really helped hold the entire family together. I wonder if the oldest sibling could now have everyone over for the New Year meal..

  6. Very healthy lah, right? My family does not observe this but I don't mind eating vegetarian during CNY or anytime. Oh, they made the fish look so real with a tail some more!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we
