nutty oats shake

what’s brunch today?

a nutty oats shake and i had to dilute with yesterday’s refreshing tea because it’s too thick.

why so thick? no proper measurements as usual..

ingredients:

  • walnuts
  • brazil nuts
  • quaker instant oats
  • milk
  • raisins
  • sunflower seeds
  • chocolates

method:

  1. use a hand blender, blender everything together.
  2. best if served chilled.

my milk not cold when i made it. and i was too hungry to leave it inside the fridge to cold. and i don’t have ice. so no choice but to dilute with tea.

Chor 3 Dinner

yesterday, at my parents’ home. Why not Chor 2? No idea. Anyway… we had Poon Choi aka all meat, seafood and vegetable in a pot (originally is a basin).

 

This is home cooked version okay… Presentation wise… ahem…. Not cheap too… Looked simple but layers of different food and time used..

We had duck, scallop, broccoli, pacific clams, radish, fish paste, 3 types of mushrooms, etc..

We had home baked chocolate chip walnut cookies.

We had home shaved ice with the common ice kacang ingredients… ice shaved using my aunt’s ice shaver machine.

Collected angpow too! Can I have more please?

Happy Chinese New Year!

A spread of Chinese, Western, and Malay food by my mom, parents’ friend, and mom’s boss’s wife.

Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Hani Steam Food

At first I thought Hani is a Malay name, and the restaurant owned my Muslims. But no! It’s run by Chinese, serving Pork Free food. So.. who is HANI (click on the name to know)?

We were a table of 6 adults; my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, and her brother, myself, and parents’ friend. Mom treated the meal, to celebrate my sister-in-law’s early birthday dinner (her birthday is this Wednesday). Fresh seafood. I took home the porridge and the chicken because we couldn’t finish them.

Ample parking space, easy to find. Accept CASH and CREDIT CARD. Good for small and large groups. There are also rooms with karaoke.

If you have never tried steam food, then give this place a try!

Restoran 粿條王 Koay Teow King

Restoran 粿條王 Koay Teow King claimed to be the Authentic Penang Char Koay Teow Since 1992. This restaurant is owned by VIVA GOURMET SDN BHD. It is located at 8, GROUND FLOOR, JALAN SS21/58, DAMANSARA UTAMA, 47400 PETALING JAYA, SELANGOR.

To be honest, I won’t mind trying out for the first time. But don’t expect me to come back again, because it’s not worth it at all.

I ordered Combo A: Char Koay Teow with Duck Egg + Pat Poh + Belacan Chicken Wing = RM17.00 and…… I regretted coming here.

Char Koay Teow with Duck Egg

No “wok hei” so I don’t get the aroma that I like. The taste is uneven, I did gave it the noodles and cockles a stir-mix before I eat. The koay teow are salty. The cockles are served cold AND so stingy, I think I saw like 3 pieces only. Yes, they gave 2 big prawns which as less salty than the koay teow. Also seen is 1 or 2 slices of “lap cheong”. The bean sprouts are too long to my liking. And the pork lard is not crispy at all. If I’m not mistaken, a plate of char koay teow only is RM12. Oh ya.. the koay teow they used, is not the usual ones I eat, which I don’t really like.

Everything and anything you add-on is chargeable. My say, I prefer the normal char koay teow than this. Why? The normal ones, all the ingredients are fried together and served, not like this, 1 side of cockles, 1 side of prawns, etc.. AND the banana leaf at the bottom is useless..

Belacan Chicken Wing

Another disappointment. Where is the belacan taste? I have eaten tastier version at other places. The saltines on the wing is also uneven.

Pat Poh

Only sweetness.

The picture is big enough for you to see what I ate.

You can try yourself, and it’s individual preference anyway..
