My Chinese New Year Eve Dishes

SMALL AFFAIR .... This Chinese New Year Eve is a very different one from my 6 decades, different not in terms of food but in terms of company.

A small scale this year, only three of us and I just did one dish... Soup!  The rest of the dishes were "contributed" from my neighbour and my sister-in-law.  I did not go over this year, she has four eating in her house which is a rare sight, all along there are more than ten each year.

Anyway, keep safe and still be happy, that is all that counts!!

For lunch we had these dishes... 
Bak Kut Teh given by my neighbour.... 
Ju Hu Char given by my neighbour too....
So nice of them!
Our CNY Eve lunch.... 
Then around 4.30pm these came...
I ordered from a friend's friend....
This Poon Choy it is called...
It cost RM238...
They gave the pot too....
I just have to heat the gravy and pour over these ingredients....
And then warm it up over the stove for awhile....
Meanwhile, my sister-in-law brought over these for me...
Black fungus with pork belly....
And our dinner for three....with the remaining soup....
We finished the dishes except for the Poon Choy...
There's one third left and I will do something with it one of these days!
LOL.... 
How about your CNY Eve this year?
Any Special Reunion?

  2. You are so lucky to be blessed with so many dishes! I did not have a reunion dinner as I prefer to stay home and stay safe. Hopefully next year's CNY will be back to normal. Let me now wish you Gong Xi Fa Cai!

  5. Ah, at least you have some sort of reunion dinner with a total of 3 pax including yourself. All food looks good. The poon choy gives the pot as well, so convenient!

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...
