Homemade cooking at its best!

Or its quickest. Grandma’s the best! She whipped this up in less than an hour!


Vegetable curry full of brinjals, tofu, ladies fingers and beans. One pot wonder, which is best eaten with toast!





After a nap, the bf, me & gramps were planning to attend daily mass before dinner. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any due to some CDD anniversary. So we went for dinner @ Murni at Aman Suria.

By the way, I found out that Murni’s Cafe @ Kepong belongs to them as well.

Anywho, since we were super early, there wasn’t any nasi campur yet, so I had myself an omelette special.


Yum. It could’ve been a tad saltier, but fine with me. It had ham and mushroom inside with a side of fries. Fries weren’t hot though. Was cold by the time it got to my table. RM5. It was cheaper when they first started off ,and the portion was much bigger. But oh well. I’ll still come back here for the good teh tarik. 😉

All my meals were out of home today. Kind of disappointing, because I do like to have a home cooked meal sometimes, but it didn’t mean the food wasn’t good!

Breakkie was at McDoodles – blame the BF (and the voucher!)


All this for RM5.25? Where can you get that? I had the eggs, a muffin and of course, the hash brown (one thing good about blogging, i know realise I have an uneaten apple pie in the fridge)

Lots of banking issues tackled between breakfast and lunch. Meaning lots of headaches. Which led to a healthy lunch at Be Lohas. I really have been wanting to try, and the only person willing to do so with me is the BF. I got a set lunch while the BF got Hailam Rice.

My Nasi Lemak set came with an enzyme drink and vege soup. the drik tasted like apple cider to me.


The BF’s Hailam Rice


I think that’s pumpkin tofu. To me, his dish didn’t look that appetising..


I liked my nasi lemak though. I love the rice. Red rice I think. The taste.. it’s so… nutty, i guess. I love it, even more than brown rice. I’m definitely getting red rice the next time around! the cabbage salad was way too healthily bland for me. Some sort of dressing would’ve been nice. But I found that mixing it with the rice, made a good bland of crunch and taste. The sambal was good. Of course, to me anyhing with onions = good. Sweet and teeny but spicy. The “chicken” was really good. Not too fibrous. Plus, there is no coconut milk / santan in this dish!

Be Lohas,

Uptown Damansara (same row as Tong Kee)

Came home and had a quick nap. We went to the night market to get some fruits and:


Nonya One sambal! Gosh, it’s been an uber while since I had this. So difficult to look for it, and now that I found it (RM12 now compared to previous RM10) I’m gonna be having this in everything!!!!!! Sweet, spicy, crispy and NOT OILY!

I had to have this at dinner @ Yook Tho Yin @ Uptown Damansara. Shared a Cantonese Yee Mee with gramps.


The noodles were quite crispy, but a bit thick for me. The sauce was good. Plus, we had lots of fish since we asked sliced fish only! Yum!

Tomorrow is D-day! Make it or break it at the interview. God help me.



Sunday blues

After a good workout, I had lunch with gramps @ SS2 Hong Lim Teochew porridge shop.


Grandma was daring to order the fish, which thankfully cost RM5.50 only. Once, we ordered one which burned a RM15 hole in grandma’s wallet!


Brinjals – This time around, it wasn’t too salty = good.


Choy poh (preserved vegetable) – yummy especially when eaten with rice. Not salty actually, rather sweet.


Choy Koek (another type of preserved veg – too sour for my liking


Tofu and Salted vegetables.

Total came up to RM22, I guess we expect these kinda prices for teochew porridge. At least I had my brinjals to enjoy!

We went to Giant to check out the good deals they had – Shower foam refills for a dollar and toothpaste for a dollar! But they were gone by the time we were there. And it was only afternoon. Giant should make sure they have sufficient stock when they want to have such promos!

Anyways, I went to Borders @ Curve to wait for the BF to get off work. Sadly, he missed the 4.30 bus, and I waited for another hour for him. Magazines and lattes make great company!

When he finally arrived, we went to KRR – Kenny Roger’s Roasters. I wanted to use a RM 5 voucher I go from the new “B” Card.


I had me a Quarter meal with Corn & Carrot, Garlic Parsley Potato and Garden Pasta salad. it didn’t really meet my expectations, as the chicken didn’t taste that good. The meat itself, I would say, wasn’t well marinated. The corn and carrot was good. But the other two sides disappointed me. The potato I felt would have been SO MUCH better if it was more caramelized. I saw brocs in the pic of the Garden Pasta Salad, but none in mine! 😦


Dear had the same but different sides. Banana muffin and vanilla muffin which we took home.

The best best best part of the night was:

Lecka-lecka! I had Orero’s flavour, but I miss the Famous Amos flavour. Sadly, I thought the Mystyle promo was still on, but I bought the voucher, and turned out that Lecka-lecka had cancelled it, but Mystyle didn’t take any action.

But ice-cream makes anyone happy! Especially eating with the one you love.



Saturday’s dinner was at Gyuniku @ Sri Hartamas. Sort of a beef noodle place. But since my only favourite noodle is tang hoon, a.k.a. mung bean noodles, I had some popiah instead.


This is the regular popiah (chicken) for sharing. (RM 4 for two rolls)


Salad popiah (beef) for myself. (RM4 for 2 of these). It was alright. Too much cucumber – I’m not a cucumber fan. Mince beef was scarce. Flavour wise was alright, mayo and the beef was.. sweet-ish. I would’ve preferred if it was the dark sauce type.


The family had lots of this. Kuey Teow with a side of either beef balls or beef tendons (RM9) a bit on the high side. Soo Kee in KL would’ve been much better and more reasonably priced.


This was the star of the night for me though. White carrot and red carrot in beef soup. I only took the pic when I was half way through, so there was actually double this amount for RM3.50.

This place is alright, but it’s price could be blamed because of its location I suppose. Sri Hartamas… where rental is most probably high.

Sorry for the delayed post. While waiting for the BF during his 10pm exam at KLIA, I read blogs on his lappie. Since I’m so used to the Windows Live Writer, I didn’t blog. Dinner was a “Dancing Chicken” (I think that’s the name) sandwich from the airport The Bakery (there’s a branch in Ikano)


Sad that it wasn’t fresh though. It’s all made already unlike the branch in Ikano. RM9.90 with 10% off (the BF’s staff price). It was fine, but don’t think it will last long. It won’t because the BF dropped it when we got into the car on the way home. 😦

I brought it to McD’s since that was one of the few 24 hour joints at the airport. I couldn’t resist some fries! I asked for small, the BF thought medium was the smallest! Lol!


We got home pretty late, but it all ended well as he passed! Thank God.

This morning, the BF had to work – flying to Kunming. Breakfast was by my lonesome self as gramps left the house early as usual.


Max was there to accompany me though! 😉


And a coffee to keep me full. Gonna run in a few hours!

Oh and the BF’s flight is delayed. Boo.



Today, me and the BF had a look at Subang Andaman. It looked OK, but now I’m worried as when I googled it, turns out it was once an abandoned project. So, it’s a big decision we have to make and figure out.

Anyways, we went to the Desa Park City park and brought Sir Maximus along. 🙂

Came home to a lovely home-cooked meal by my grandma! She’s the best.


I was too lazy to get my cam, so sorry for the lousy iPhone shot.

Top is tofu with minced meat! It’s my fav. The meat is cooked with dark soy sauce and I love the sweet and salty flavout.

Bottom left is “Siew Bok Choy” and Right is stir-fry butterhead. I know “What?!”. My grandma went digging around the vegetable box and realised the siew bok choy isn’t enough. So she must’ve thought my butterhead lettuce waslike romaine, and so she fried it. Though, it did taste like romaine when fried.

I’m still a tad hungry, so I may will go down for dessert in a bit.

I hate decisions, just so you know.
