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??

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! 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

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...
