This Has Got To Stop


I walked past Maybank just the other day and caught my silhouette on the sliding door. Gosh, I looked like a barrel (a small one lah).

I could pass off as one Rose Mah Mun Soh except that my hair was flat and I was carrying a RM49.90 handbag. 

Eating out almost everyday has taken its toll on my (already ample) physique. Whatever happened to my food prep? All that bravado about home cooked food and all?

Just one word. Laziness. I kind of let loose on Sundays and took one break too many. Well, this has got to stop. I must cook my lunches and dinners for the week again.

So. The other day I went to you-know-where for a late lunch. I noticed a guy at the next table enjoying his wanton mee.

A short while later, a server went to his table with a plate of what looked like omelette draped over something. Mr Wanton Mee mumbled to the server and sent him away.

Shortly after that, the lady boss pulak went over with that same plate of omelette and asked Mr Wanton Mee "You don't want this?" Again he mumbled and I heard him telling her that he would pay for it and she carried the omelette away.

I don't know the story but I reckon there must have been a misunderstanding. He must have placed an order and then changed his mind.

Anyway. This was what I had.



Chee Cheong Fun with mushrooms.



Not great but edible. I kind of thought of that omelette thingy because it looked very good to me.

So. On another visit I ordered the Char Siew Egg Foo Yong Rice (this is on the daily menu).



See the bump in the middle? The reveal.



Rice and char siew encased inside. I enjoyed this one a lot.



And oh, that first pic at the start of the post was Ginger Fried Rice.



One of the specials on one of the days. It was quite good. Gingery with good wok hei.

Well, thanks to Mr Wanton Mee, I am glad I tried the omelette rice.

    This dish of rice with hidden char siew as a gem is interesting and delicious.

    1. LOL! That guy is more of a "You want you pay" type I think. If it were me, I would pay (for my mistaken order) and give away the dish.

  5. I hope your laziness is not due to my lethargy spreading around. :(

    Hmm, the egg foo yong rice that I usually had, I remember the rice would be quite wet with gravy. I think I will enjoy this though...

  13. I actually love ginger fried rice but I've not seen one cooked with soya sauce before though. That rice dish you had...I think they just tried to fan your curiosity by frying an omelette and plonking it on top to cover the char siew rice underneath. I guess it's a take on Pattaya Fried Rice but at least that one need a bit of skill to pull off. I've seen those Thai stalls in coffee shops make it. They had to make a very thin omelette and then wrap their fried rice inside! >.<

    1. I thought it was a clever presentation, like so mysterious hee..hee.. I have not had Pattaya Fried Rice but have seen photos of it. I always wondered how they warp the rice in the thin omelette. There must be a trick to it.

  14. I know the feeling of guilt if I don't make time to prepare my lunch. It's always much healthier than what I can find to purchase.

  16. Hi Phong Hong, no worries, the portion looks quite small. Boleh tahan-lah so long as you go walking for 30 minutes the next day, hehehe. My hubby always tell me, everything can eat one.

  17. Hi Phong Hong, intermittent fasting is the way to go...google it and try. You can still eat what you want but portion control and starve the first half of the day! It works.....I love that type of CCF it's with mushroom and pork gravy isn't it? Ipoh style....and the Omelette rice looks awesome...is this all at Annie1? haven;t been there for awhile!

    1. Hi Kamal! I have heard about intermittent fasting but never paid much attention to it. I suppose I should look into it now, thanks! Yes, the CCF is with mushroom and pork gravy. All at Annie-1 :)
