Goodness Greens

One Friday evening, when my partner asked me what I wanted for dinner, I decide to give him chance (to eat rice and dishes) and I suggested Yik Kee@TTDI

You Busy Do What?

If you are wondering what this madam has been up to lately, so busy until got no time to put up cooking post, well ironically I have been cooking non-stop for the past three weekends including the recent two public holidays.

Seminar Food

Every now and then, I have to attend seminars to fulfill the Continuing Education Program for my profession. These seminars are held at hotels either in KL or PJ. And when there is a seminar, there is a lot of food.

To The Windmill Again

We came back because I wanted the Mixed Grill. That's lunch before we went up to the medical center to check on dad who was due for his procedure later in the afternoon.

Pin Qian Klang Bak Kut Teh@The Starling

Ah! Bak Kut Teh (BKT). I love this but hardly have the chance to eat often. My favorite so far is the one at Sungai Way but I have not been there for a while.

Prawn Noodle King@Damansara Uptown

Finally. After two failed attempts to eat here (once when the place was packed and another time I went on a Monday which is their day off), I had the opportunity to visit. Best of all, I had my partner with me. He was also curious about Prawn Noodle King after I told him about this outlet when it first opened.

Windmill@Subang Jaya

This is a restaurant that my brother and I visit only when we are doing our hospital rounds. The first time was in 2001 when dad was admitted and then in 2015 when we visited our uncle

Dave's Deli@The Starling : Teething Blues

My brother and I had dropped my parents off at his house after dad had an unscheduled hospital visit due to some post-surgery issues.

To The Good Batch with The Good Brother

This late lunch happened on the day when our dad was discharged from hospital. This year, dad has been plagued with health problems.

Mango and Tomato Salsa

Hah! I found a cooking post! Well, actually no cooking was involved hee..hee... 

Thursday, 6 September 2018


After having my first taste of Champ's Chee Yok Fun, I had to have it again. Talk about addiction.

Judy's@A Foodie's Nest : I Can't Believe I Like This Green Stuff

I have always been curious about Lei Cha but did not have the courage to try it because I was afraid that I would dislike the taste. The thought of drinking a greenish herbal concoction freaked me out a little.

Mr Fish@The Starling

I haven't visited Mr Fish@The Starling for quite some time because I felt that standards have dropped compared to what I used to enjoy during my initial visits in 2017.

My Fattening Weekend

Folks, for the next week or two, I won't have any cooking, let alone baking posts to share. Not that I haven't been cooking just that it isn't anything that I have not shared before.

What To Do With Leftover Nando's Chicken?

When I roasted half a chicken the other day, I ate the leg and  ended up with leftovers. Besides I also had leftover roasted vegetables.

Wednesday, 29 August 2018

This Chee Yok Fun Is Da Champ!

The last time I went up to A Foodie's Nest@The Starling, I tried Kom's By Kompassion which has since closed down. Business at this food court has picked up a bit since I last visited but I can't say that it is bustling.

Rakuzen....So Sian......

This was a Friday dinner at Rakuzen@The Starling. There was one occasion when we decided not to wait as the restaurant was full house.

Nando's Tastes Better At Home

After I bought a bottle of Nando's Peri-Peri Sauce and made my own Nando's chicken, I went on to buy another two bottles - the Lemon and Herb and Garlic

Moo..Moo.... Cow Brother@Damansara Uptown

From Epicuro to Anneh and now, Cow Brother. I meant the shoplot. It used to house me and my brother's favorite Big Breakfast hangout until Epicuro decided to call it a day (a sad day for me). And then Anneh came along and didn't last 6 months.

Char Koay Teow King (Authentic Penang Char Koay Teow)@Damansara Uptown

This restaurant is somewhere opposite UOB Bank in Damansara Uptown. Previously, as in just a few months ago, this shoplot was occupied by a place selling noodles.

Lazy To Cook : Theori Food@Damansara Uptown

After I discovered Theori Food@Damansara Uptown, I decided to take short a break from my DIY lunch prep. Let's face it, it's always great to have food cooked and packed for you. Who wants to slave in the kitchen at 5:00am? I have my lazy streak and besides I did get a little tired of my own cooking.

Mango and Cabbage Slaw

Do mango and cabbage go well together? In my personal opinion, no. How about mango, cabbage and lime juice? Again, no. So why the heck did I make this Mango and Cabbage Slaw?

Friday, 17 August 2018

Brownies Mak Oi!

The other day there was a minor power failure at the office. It affected not the whole office but only appliances that were plugged into certain power sources. Only my computer was affected while the air conditioner and lights worked fine.

Curiosity Kills The Cat : Beef Burger with Peanut Butter and Jelly

I'm a glutton for punishment aren't I? In spite of the insipid coffee and so so big breakfast, I came back for one more experience.

A Sad End to My Spidery Beauties

My purple Cleome finally bloomed some months ago, thanks to the generosity of Ms Nancy Chan who gifted me with another batch of seeds.

Nando's in My Kitchen

It has been a long, long, time since I ate at Nando's. Quite honestly, I did not find Nando's chicken all that special. The flavors did not make an impression on me and I never went back.

Friday Food

Yup, Friday is cheat day. Though it didn't go as planned, it was nevertheless a cheat day. A day when I can eat whatever I liked. I skipped dinner the night before because I ate too much on Thursday. I will get to Thursday in a bit.

Pork Vindaloo

I have been wanting to try cooking a vindaloo, be it chicken or pork but I never did because I was iffy about the vinegar. Vinegar in curry seems rather odd to me.

An Indulgent Salad : With Bacon & Fried Bread

Do you like bread? I love bread. I haven't had bread like for ages. I love crusty breads, sourdough, mixed nut loaves, whatever kind of breads and buns.

Theori Food@Damansara Uptown : My Healthy and Delicious Tapau Dream Come True

On one of my walkabouts in Damansara Uptown (in an attempt to burn the waffles I ate) I chanced upon something interesting.

Tuesday, 7 August 2018

Got Fish & Chips Ah?

After my visit to The Good Batch, I wanted to return to try the dinner menu. So I suggested to my partner that we try something different for our Friday night dinner.

Golden Spicy Chicken

I have been quite successful in resisting the urge to buy cookbooks whenever I visit the bookshop. Every time I take a walk to Popular bookshop or BookXcess, I am inevitably drawn to the cookbook section. I'm a cookbook addict.

The Good Batch : Still Good?

Back in June, I mentioned that I walked all the way to The Good Batch hoping to catch their big breakfast only to find that they were closed for renovations. Well, they have finally reopened.

Mummy's Yellow Beef

This is one of my mum's signature dishes. Everyone in the family loves it. Her version is more generous with the onions and garlic and it looks like I underestimated my ingredients again.

I Don't Eat Like This Anymore

These solo lunches at Mr Tuk Tuk happened quite some time ago. I used to eat the set meals but I decided to try ordering individual dishes from the menu. Since I am alone, obviously I cannot order too much.

After Mission Impossible : Red Lobster

Last Saturday my brother and I had a movie date. Mission Impossible - Fallout. We usually eat first and then catch a movie but our favorite seats were taken for the earlier show.

Nasi Ulam (Aromatic Rice Salad)

This rice salad is something that I wanted to make for a very, very long time. I never got round to it because as with nonya dishes, there is always a long tedious process with the assembling of many components.

Friday, 27 July 2018

Chicken Liver with Long Beans

Chicken liver. I love, love, love it! hee..hee..hee... I know some people don't like organ meat but I enjoy it lots. If I see chicken liver or gizzard at the food stall, I must have it.

Low Carbing@Pho Vietz : Big Fail

It is very difficult to go low carb when eating out. Somehow there will be carbs in all the dishes and even if there aren't  any, some of the elements may contain sugar which will also torpedo your plans.

Wednesday, 25 July 2018

Chocolate Cherry Muffins

You know, muffins are very forgiving. I say that because I did not follow a recipe and just estimated my way through and yet these batch of muffins turned out all right.

Roasted Vegetable Salad : Sorry No Recipe

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, when I was working at another office, there was a nice cafe situated downstairs. This cafe served western style food like pasta, roasted chicken, salad and such.

My Pretty Cheat Meal : Worth The Sin?

OK. I have been behaving myself so far, sticking to my almost keto diet for the past 3 weeks. That's right 3 weeks. I deserve a pat on my back (which has since lost a layer of fat) because I stuck to this eating plan even when I ate out with my brother.

Oh No Not Again

I have been inspecting my Hibiscus ever since I caught this guy red handed. Then I spotted another chewed flower bud but the perp was nowhere in sight.

Daging Goreng Kunyit (Turmeric Beef)

I love beef and I'm in on any dishes featuring beef. Beef curry, beef rendang, beef stew, beef soup, beef noodles, you name it, I want it.

An Unexpected Lunch

Or shall I say brunch? My brother swung by my office to drop something off and he asked me "Want to go for lunch?". I am always happy to see him and how could I say no?

Tuesday, 17 July 2018

Bacon It!

Ever since I made Devil On A Horseback, I have this compulsion to make bacon wrapped things. Bacon makes everything taste good. I love, love, love bacon. 

Monday, 16 July 2018

Nasi Goreng Kerabu (Kerabu Fried Rice)

Last weekend I had no idea what to cook. Then while catching up with my blog hopping, I stopped by Kak Azie's blog and I was very tempted when I saw her Nasi Goreng Kerabu

Date Nite@Chihiro

As we were making our way to Chihiro, my partner lamented that he missed Hokano. Yeah, me too. I think my brother misses Hokano too.

Better Than Chap Fan : My Lunch Prep

As I have mentioned here about my morning food prep, I am happy to report that I have been keeping up with this thing. I am actually quite surprised with the ease of cooking lunch before going to work.
