MCO 2.0 Day #14 & #15 : Raw Fish is Better Than Golden Chicken

I have been eating a lot. For the next few days till Sunday I am eating out. Because starting February 1st, I am conducting an experiment, for a mini thesis if you will. Not for any university, but for my personal interest. 

Day #14 (Tuesday)

I came home to a very destructive child.


Belle scratched the sofa with passion.


Then my other child did likewise. All my sofas have gone to hell. Haiz....


Lunch was spinach, fish and brinjals (RM9.00). The sambal for the brinjal was extra pungent. I think it was salted fish that might have been past expiry. The battered fish was too salty.


Dinner. Taking advantage of the Grabfood 30% (max RM8.00) discount using EXTRAHUAT promo code.


My fave....from The Fish Bowl. I have not eaten this for a long, long time.


I love, love, love poke bowls!


Gorgeous and delicious!


I added my own avocado. 


My food taster said it is safe to eat.


I enjoyed my dinner to the max. Must have this again!

Day #15 (Wednesday)


Lunch today was pretty good (RM8.00). Stir fried kailan, lemon chicken and long beans.


heh...heh...heh... I was curious about the new KFC Golden Butter Cereal Chicken which was launched sempena Chinese New Year.


Again I took advantage of the EXTRAHUAT promo code to get RM8.00 off my order.


My food taster is very diligent.


I got the 2 pieces Golden Butter Cereal Chicken meal, 1 small coleslaw and 3 pieces Durian Balls.


I specifically requested for drumstick and thigh but got a drumstick and a rib. Maybe they ran out of thighs.


With the meal, you also get those crispy cereal bits. Not just one tub.


But two! I guess people who like to eat those crispy bits will be happy but I did not like it. I took just two small spoonfuls.


The golden butter cereal coating tastes like those Nestum prawns that you get from Chinese restaurants, sort of. It was slightly sweet, buttery and savory. I'm afraid I did not like this flavor. Once is enough for me.


The Durian Balls were OK. Nice and crispy on the outside and chewy (but not overtly so) inside but the durian filling was disappointing. The durian flavor was too mild and the overall taste was bland. Needs more durian and a bit more sugar.

I think I will go back to the other KFC.


My raw fish dinner the night before was loads better.

  1. At least, they're both auspicious colours - the red salmon and the golden chicken.

  2. This new flavour kfc is not for us too as he doesn't eat butter sauce. I think they don't put sugar into the durian balls fillings to keep it authentic. I like the taste of the durian balls cos very genuine taste.

  3. What thesis will you be experimenting on? Not eating out after Feb 1? So that's why you are eating all out now? Didn't know about the extrahuat code. Now that I know, I will use it. Hopefully still can use.

  4. Aiyo these two kids. Maybe can get them a scratching seat or scratching bowl to scratch. I got a new cat tree for the tenant's room with jute ropes encircling the pole n the tenant can't help but to scratch the pole cos I think the jute ropes make him geram.

    1. I'm thinking of getting one. Where did you buy yours from? It's hilarious that you refer to BoiBoi as your tenant. LOL!

      I bought from this insta seller paws_empire_malaysia

      Important is to buy a stable one with a large base because if y'all but base too small will topple. I share a video of my tenant, very funny

  7. I love to eat poke bowls too. But I have to avoid raw fishes if possible, due to health reasons. I better explain in my blog.

    My sister shipped back her costly full leather L-shaped sofa from England and I noticed her cats do not scratch her sofa. She went to the local pet shop to buy all the scratch-trees or poles specially for her cats. They prefer to use that instead of sofa when their fangs are itchy. Try that.

    1. I have read horror stories on worm/parasite infestation from eating raw fish. So I don't eat so often, but sometimes tempted as I love raw salmon and tuna.

      Sure, I am looking to buy those scratching poles.

  8. Adoi, your destructive children. Yeah, get them a scratching post (lots on Shopee)...although I cannot guarantee they'll use it (Cookie used it for a while and then abandoned it). I think it's the type of fabric of your sofa that makes them love to scratch it. Try wrapping something around it (like your sarung or bedsheet) to see if that deters them from scratching it. P/S: Your avocado looks just nice and ripe. How do you select/know when they're ripe enough?

    1. What I fear is that they will ignore the scratching post and I will waste my money hah..hah..

      When an avocado is just ripe, it will feel soft when you press it and even softer when it is very ripe. The unripe ones are very hard. So if you buy an avocado that is still not ripe, just leave it on your dining table for a day or two for it to ripen. Test by pressing it. Once it feels soft, to slow down the ripening, keep it in the fridge.

      It so happened that I bought this batch from Avocadian. You can tell the staff when you want to eat the Avocado and they will select ones that are of the right degree of ripeness. They will even stick a sticker on the fruit so that you can differentiate the riper ones (in case you might want to keep some for later).

  9. I tried to refrain from eating raw fish and raw salmon recently too. Wonder if this Golden Butter Cereal Chicken is available in SG KFC.
