Homecooked Food At 130 Cafe, Ipoh

CAFE 130... That is what we used to call her when she invited us for dinner!

My friends and I love having dinner in her house cos she serves homecooked dishes most of the vegetables are homegrown as well.  We were invited to her home again few days ago and I did not particularly asked what dishes she was going to cook.  I just told her that I would be bringing one dish, a tiny dish.... LOL.... 

We reached her house around 5pm and everything was ready except for the bean sprouts which she was going to blanch as soon as we reached.  That is so thoughtful of her.... bean sprouts is best eaten while they are still fresh and hot.  As soon as she saw what my friend brought, she suddenly exclaimed... "Öh no, I forgot to cook rice!"   Fret not, fret not... I told her... we are not rice eaters nowadays and a big bowl of fried wanton noodles cooked by my friend, that is more than enough for the four of us!  LOL....

Good thing she did not remember to cook rice... 
Otherwise there would be leftover of either noodles or rice.... 
Fried meat balls... 
Minced meat, fish paste and ginger mixed.. 
Tasty dish!
Her homecooked BBQ Pork... aka Char Siew....
Very nicely done....
Soft and sweet pork belly.... 
My mini dish fried chicken... 
Fresh beansprouts garnished with garlic and oil.... 
Which is the most popular dish... 
Only the oil was left... LOL... 
What a scrumptious meal for the 4 of us!
Thank you Nancy for the yummy dinner!!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
