Multi Grain Dumplings From The Leaf

DUMPLING SEASON?  My brother called up and asked me... 

Oh yeah, it is coming soon, perhaps in less than a month.  My brother is a vegetarian for more than 10 years now... .he does not eat meat, fish nor eggs, he is not the religious vegetarian whereby garlic are forbidden too.  In fact he takes a lot of raw garlic, he is a self proclaimed vegetarian.... 

And he asked me whether I am interested in consuming vegetarian dumpling few days ago.  He even sent me an image to "tempt" me... LOL... and yes, I am smitten.  One box consists of 8 dumplings and cost RM69.  I wanna try.... it consists of millets, black eye peas... black rice.. etc etc...No glutinous rice, that is fine with me.  Nowadays I cannot take in too much glutinous rice, I will get indigestion whole day.

Oh, I ended up not getting one box but three, yes, I became Santa Claus for a day... LOL...  And he made the orders and collected them from an organic shop here in Ipoh.

This is the image I received....
Looks good, eh.... 
I googled it and they are produced in Penang...
I steamed one... 
Oversteamed and it was quite soft.... 
More on beans which I like....
The orange colour is carrots to replace "salted eggs"
There are 3 pieces of mushrooms and two chestnuts...
Yes, I like it...
Something different and definitely can digest easier!


  1. This is the first time I have heard you have a brother living nearby. What a cool and yummy gift!

  2. I think I will like these vegetarian dumplings. I wonder can I buy them online to be delivered to kl. They look really good.

  3. Is your brother a vegan? Does he drink milk? Does he eat butter?

  5. Never tasted vegetarian dumplings. I just had bak chang yesterday. 2 types, Nyonya and Hakka changs.

  6. Interesting! I won't mind trying this vegetarian dumpling although it feels straange to have chung not made with glutinous rice.

  7. No glutinous rice? This is perfect for me, not so starchy. Hey! You have a brother? How come I never heard you mention him before? Where's that fat nephew of yours, now not fat anymore? Must be all grown up now!

  8. I think I will like it because having carrot, chestnuts and mushrooms as the ingredients sounds tasty enough for me. I have been a semi-vegetarian for more than 5 years.

  9. This one looks different from the one I bought in Ipoh which also used millet. I like the chestnut in dumplings. I kena tipu by the carrot, thought it was salted egg yolk. Lol!

  10. The multi grain dumplings looked very delicious and power packed with ingredients. Nicer than the real ones with meat. Clever seller and brother of yours.

    Someday I might be a fulltime vegan too when I get older. There is a calling.

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....

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
