Third Day Of Nationwide Movement Control Covid19

THIRD DAY OF "CONFINEMENT"....

Oh, but I did go out this morning, thought of buying more eggs and a loaf of bread.  The mini wet market had more people today, it seems they are forced to close from tomorrow onwards.  The residents must have heard about it and the panic buying began again.  No more chicken meat and fish by the time I reached there at 10am.  I adjourned to the sundry shop, no eggs, finished too!!  Wow, that is serious, man.... I managed to get 10 eggs from another shop but no bread in sight, all gone... Gone!

I guess I have to ration my stock in the fridge... LOL... My neighbor called me early this morning and told me that she made a special dish today, Hainanese Braised Pork and gave me a one meal portion.  Tasted sourish and spicy... appetizing!  Yes, I guess many of us will gain some healthy weight during this confinement...
I like this new kitchen toy I bought from Lazada....
I can steam my rice... 
and warm up the dish at the same time....

And the remaining of my Hyacinth bean aka Pang Pei Dau... 
I boiled with one quarter of chicken meat this morning... 
And my meal is done for the day!

  1. Oh dear even telur also habis at your wet market. My neighborhood folks would flock into Hero Supermarket to grab every afternoon when stuffs are replenished.
    You have really good and kind neighbours! They are caring like you.

  3. Oh dear! Yesterday me and my lahling went to look for grocery and the bread section was still empty. Luckily there is a bakery inside Jaya Grocer (The Baker's Son) so we bought their bread. It is more expensive but no choice! Wah, I like your new cooking gadget. I actually like these things, on Lazada I see and can go gila I tell you. But I don't buy because most of the time, it will collect dust. LOL!

  4. Both you and your neighbour's dishes look yummy! You have such nice neighbours. When your country announced the partial lockdown, in sg, there was another round of panic buying at our supermarkets. Our garmen has to reassure the citizens that there will be enough stocks to go around.

  5. Wah! Your new steamer looks cool. Yes, this morning managed to get some chicken and pork. Bread all gone. Some places no eggs. Maybe I have to make some steamed buns to keep.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

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!

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...
