CMCO - Chinese and Korean Styled Dishes At Home

LOCKUP .... so it is all homecooked food, at least for dinner, if not lunch.

Now I have a helper in the kitchen, she loves to learn especially in making desserts!  So far she has learn up two types of cakes, chocolate sponge cake and Tiramisu via Youtube... LOL... Free lessons all the way!  I don't disturb her, she does her thing in the kitchen while I stay away at some parts in the house.  When it is done, I will come and give encouragement... the more I give, the more new stuff I get to eat... isn't that a real bargain?  LOL... 

When it comes to dinner, I will take over and on certain type of food such as Korean-styled, I will step aside and let her take over the kitchen.  Then I will do the washing after that.... 

There are two different types of dinner here, one is local and one is Korean styled.. so I don't have to mention which is cooked by whom.... LOL.. 

Three dishes for the 4 of us.... 
Omelette with Kuchai aka Garlic Chives..
She just folded this into half... half moon omelette...
Three types of greens cooked with abalone... 
A confinement dish which I love very much...
Chicken in chinese wine... (lo mai chau)

And on another day, we had these for dinner... 
Gaozi... 
Minced meat, fish paste and garlic chives marinated for a few hours... 
We counted ... there were 41 in total.... 
Gave some to my neighbour... 
Steamed some and air fry the others... 
Both equally good... 
Dipped with ginger and black vinegar.... 
Eaten with homemade wanton noodles and red beans dessert!
hmmm....  have to think... 
what's cooking for tonight??

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
