Nene Chicken : It's Freaking Hot!

One fine day I walked past and saw this newly opened Nene Chicken@The Starling. Well, you all know I love fried chicken. Korean fried chicken.

Cornflakes Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best cookies I have baked so far. They came about when I baked Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies and wanted to use up the other half block of butter.

One at Annie 1

That's lunch for one at Annie 1. I always eat solo. I am a loner and I do fine eating or doing anything by myself.

Chimichurri Chicken Avocado Salad

After I made chimichurri, I was very excited to make this Chimichurri Chicken Avocado Salad. I was again in my avocado-addiction-phase (thanks to my sister-in-law) and bought three avocados on a Monday.

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

What? Still baking cookies? hee..hee...hee... It looks like the cookie baking that started during the festive season has not stopped. Not yet anyway.

Seng Kee Chicken Rice

One weekend, having no idea where to eat, my partner and I made our way to Seng Kee Chicken Rice@Uptown Damansara. The first time we visited, we were not impressed.

Argentinian Chimichurri

When I first made chimichurri, I was obsessed with this condiment but somewhere along the line, I stopped (not that I tired of it) and somehow I never made it again.

An Outing at Isetan Eat Paradise

It was another day when my brother had to play Grabcar driver to his sister. Hee..hee... And every time that happens, I look forwards to our makan session.

Macaroni Meat Drop Soup

I can't call this "meatball soup" because I did not form the minced meat into balls, but rather I dropped them into the boiling broth in odd shapes (just like how they do in pork noodle soup).

Corn, Jalapeno and Parmesan Fritters

I had some leftover jalapenos in the fridge. They were past their prime, slightly wrinkly and no longer plump and shiny. And then I had an ear of corn, originally meant for a Mexican rice dish which did not come into being.

What To Eat? What To Eat?

There's lots to eat at Damansara Uptown. Just go to The Starling or walk along the shophouses and you will find lots of restaurants, coffeshops and cafes. In spite of this, I sometimes find myself wondering what to eat...

Avocado, Black Bean and Tomato Salad

During our Chinese New Year dinner, my sister-in-law told us that she is crazy over avocado. She has this craving for avocado and wants to eat it all the time.

My Phad Thai Craving

I love rice and I love noodles. Sometimes I crave for noodles and that particular day I was craving for Phad Thai. This is the Thai version of fried koay teow.

Parmesan Potato Chips Cookies

What do you think of crushed potato chips mixed into cookie batter to produce a fusion of potato chips and cookies? Crazy? Not a bad idea actually.

My Favorite French Beans

When I was a kid, one of the vegetables that I disliked was French beans. Generally speaking, I disliked all vegetables. They were all very unappealing to me.

My Prosperity Meal

When I was a student many years ago, I used to love McDonald's Prosperity Burger and Twister Fries. This burger is only available in conjunction with Chinese New Year.

Ayam Goreng Kunyit (Turmeric Fried Chicken)

This fried chicken is quite popular at the Malay mixed rice or nasi kukus (steamed rice) stalls.

Never Say Never : Berry Bingsu

After having my first taste of Bingsu, I concluded that Bingsu is not for me as it was (1) too sweet and (2) I do not like the added condensed milk. So I would not have anymore Bingsu, like ever.

Nestum Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the second cookie that I baked during Chinese New Year. I bought a packet of Nestum cereal way earlier with the good intention of baking cookies as giveaways before the new year.

Friday, 23 February 2018

Leftovers Salad with Lemony Dressing

When I go to Salad Atelier, I have to tick the ingredients that I want in my salad. How many I can have depends on the size of the salad - Baby Salad, Adult Salad or Monster Salad.

Ms Brownies In The House

This is my cousin's family cat. Ms Brownies is her name. We got acquainted on the first day of Chinese New Year at my aunt's house.

Luncheon Meat Fried Rice

When I posted Fried Rice with Long Beans some of you commented that you use French beans and lap cheong (Chinese sausage).

Truly Wine But We Don't Drink

A new restaurant opened last year at The Starling. It's called Truly Wine and I suppose this is a place for wine drinkers to come for a tipple and a bite to eat.

Crunchy Cranberry Cornflakes Cookies

Chinese New Year is over. I mean not over, over, since we have until the 15th day to celebrate. At least the first 3 days have passed.

Chinese New Year But Indian Food

It's the first day of Chinese New Year. Gong Xi Fa Cai! Or as we say it at home, Keong Hee Huat Chye! Mum wanted to give us a treat, a banana leaf curry treat. Yay!

Reunion Dinner 2018

My day was supposed to start at 4:00 am. But madam had no energy. So I stayed on in bed until 5:00am. I am not usually like that, alright? 

Pre-Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner

Oh oh. Mr Tuk Tuk again?? My mum having read so many posts on Mr Tuk Tuk, she wanted to visit. Of course I was delighted to fulfill mum's wish.

Banana Muffins With Blueberry Jam Topping

It was supposed to be just plain old banana muffins but I got itchy fingers and diligently piped some blueberry jam on the muffins.

Who Said This Is The Best Fish & Chips?

This outing happened last year and yes, it was our Friday date night. We ran out of new places to go (my darling's preference and taste was the limiting factor) and I suddenly remembered Fish & Co.@1-Utama.

Ooopss! We Did It Again

It was a Friday and my partner had to go on a trip very early in the morning. So my brother gave me a ride to the office which means come evening - MAKAN!! hee..hee..hee..

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every time I see Nutella when I go shopping, I the compulsion to buy a jar. Especially if it is on special offer. At one time, I had 5 jars (that's how bad it is) in the pantry with more than 5 recipes playing in my head.

KOM's By Kompassion@A Foodie's Nest

The food court, A Foodie's Nest@The Starling, opened sometime towards the end of last year. At the time, it was very quiet and not many stalls were occupied.

My Best Pandan Chiffon Cake

I cannot say this is the best Pandan Chiffon Cake but I can say that it is my best. What is best depends on you, right? What is best to me may not be the best to you, hence the qualifier, my best.

Haiz...Why Didn't I Go Next Door?

Sometimes you are just curious. You know that the wanton mee somewhere is da bomb but you just have to try out the other one. Who knows it might be vavavoom!

My Favorite Breakfast

I wish I could say nasi lemak because if I had my way, I would eat nasi lemak everyday for breakfast. Or roti canai. Or meehoon goreng. Or tai pau. Haiz....

Fried Rice with Long Beans

I was craving for some fried rice so I bought a packet of long beans because I love fried rice with long beans. Nope, no cauliflower was harmed in the making of this fried rice. Once in a while I want a full blown fried rice.

To The 2nd Floor Again!

One evening my brother and I made our way to 2nd Floor Kitchen & Bar@TTDI again. After the enjoyable brunch that we had on a weekend (and not knowing that the lunch and dinner menu is different), we had to return for the dinner menu.

Chili Tuna Pasta

This dish is specifically for those days when I am not in the mood to cook. Or don't have the time. Or just plain lazy. Hah! Now you ask me, how do you conjure a chili tuna when you don't want to cook?

Nancy! Nancy! Your Cleome Jadi!!

My blogger friend, Nancy, is so kind. So kind! And so generous too. When I left a comment on her Cleome Spider Flowers post, she offered to send me some seeds. I was delighted!

Broccoli Bagna Cauda

Now who goes WAAAGRGGGGHH!!! at the mention of broccoli? I know. Those people who have been ordered by their doctors to eat steamed broccoli. Or kids who have been forced by their mums to swallow a broccoli floret or two.

Best Butter Cake

I am a very guilty daughter. This is my Pa's favorite cake and yet when he and mum visited last year, I did not bake this cake for him (though I had the intention).

Thursday, 25 January 2018

Strawberry Salad

Hands up anyone who goes bonkers at sight of strawberries!  I am one of them. Strawberries are so pretty aren't they? But my experience with strawberries have not been pretty until I met Korean strawberries.

Really Big Breakfast. Really?

One day last year, I was very hungry during office hours. So I nipped over to The Red Kettle@The Starling for something to eat.

Solo Lunches@Mr Tuk Tuk

So I went back to Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling about a week after the feast I had with my brother. Since I was alone, I opted for the set meal.

One Tray Roasted Meat and Vegetables

It looks like the lazy bug is still with me and when I wanted to prep up some weekday food, I remembered my Roasted Pork Loin with Peppers which I cooked back in 2016.

We Overate Again

It was a Saturday and my brother and I had an early movie date. Our show was at 10:25am - Insidious : The Last Key. Yup, a horror movie, best watched in the morning hee..hee...

Banana Zucchini Bread

So what to do with leftover grated zucchini? Surely not fritters again, though in all honesty - I WANT FRITTERS!!! But no, cannot be having fritters two weeks in a row, can we?

Pasta Salad

Yes, folks. I am eating carbs more often now that I've somewhat achieved my target weight. The important thing that I must take note is not to overeat.
