Steamed Rice With Pumpkin

LAZY DAYS...

I try to minimize my cooking to once a day... max... LOL.. I am so lazy these days.  Most of the time I cook only for dinner, with a heavy breakfast, I skip lunch.. *I try* but most times I end up taking bread instead. 

Yesterday in Ipoh, heavy rain and thunder plus hailstones!  But thankfully not in my area but certain parts of Ipoh... I was safe in my own house despite the howling wind, seriously howling, never heard such wooooo sounds so clearly before...but this morning when I woke up, I saw two small holes in my kitchen ceiling.  Oh oh... time to check for repairs... sigh... Today I saw the aftermath of the storm, Ipoh being terrorized by the storm is up on viral, really scary if I were driving in the midst of the heavy storm and wind. 

Back to my post..... I just cook a simple meal with half a pumpkin, minced meat, french beans, dried shrimps and red hot chillies...
Steamed pumpkin rice for the both of us.... 
The heavy rain did not stop me from having my desserts.... 
My kind-of-expression after my "fix"...
LOL....

  2. The young man managed to go your place in the heavy rain? No point wasting gas and electricity to cook so many times. Just cook more once a day. Can eat same food. It is ok.

  4. Ya read abt the storm in ipoh in facebook, hope all is well and safe and no injury. Lol, same as you, i would eat bread when lazy to think of wat to eat and lazy to takeaway. Repairing of ceiling should be considered as essential service rite, i hope you manage to get smone to repair it. Your steamed pumpkin rice with minced meat looks yummy and satisfying.

  5. Yes, I read about the storm. Terrible weather these days, global warming!!! We cook once a day, in the morning for lunch and dinner. Evening, we just heat up the food.

  9. This is such a good idea to cook rice with pumpkin. It will make the rice more fragrant and sweeter.

    You and I have same tastes for Baskin Robins ice creams!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
