The above is the meat loaf made by aunt Hong Yi – very good.
It is Sunday morning… when we talked about foods, in certain occasion, it is not just only about taste and presentation – and if we understood the process and meaning behind it. As they said if we understood the meaning of the foods and who is it for then the meaning behind it became even more meaningful.
The finale – a little bit of the east and west; pasta and man tao. Simple yet full of nourishment. The best things sometimes are the simplest. Don’t you think so ?
ok guys and gals that all for Sunday today.
Have a nice weekend. Enjoyed.
This dish was take away from fu chow restaurant but the tofu was an added ingredient by my wife. When you loved certain foods, you will tend to modify certain ingredients into the dish to make even better. If you read my blog before, I liked to blend in life experience and learning related to food. Hence, in life it is important to flexible and continue to innovate our life to be happier and more completed.
A balance meal with everything don’t you think so.
Have a good night.
This is one of the moment of homemade dumpling when searching sorting out my online cloud photo – which I thought that it was worthwhile to post.
The following photos were taken in 2015-02-18. Times do fly fast – and now it is already 2018 and I am glad that these memories were captured and treasured.
Every single little square photo did made up the good memories – therefore all, started to take more photos especially times flies by so fast in the multi tasking world today that the good times and things were always being forget and neglected.
Have a nice day to all…
When you love and addicted to coffee like me, and happened to find the coffee that will boost the adrenaline for the day and a good kick start. Yes here it is – one of the great local black coffee.
It is the kopi O kao – it implies “thick” coffee. It is not easy to make a good cup of kopi-o kao especially in making the kopi-o, it is all manually made without the reliance of the machinery to make it a standard. I believe it need long time of practice, experience to tune it to perfection. To me, what make this so great – color – super black, temperature to dissolve the powder – just right, and the last bit of it – the bubbly on top. Yes, the bubbles – the existence of the good cup of the kopi-o; need to have the appearance of the bubbles. No bubbles implies no perfection. And the amount of the bubbles on top makes the indication of the great kopi-o kao.
One thumb up to the person who make these great coffee.
Lian Fu Restaurant – Tanah Jambu
Hi all, Happy Chinese New Year to all. Festive seasons are all about joys, happiness, giving, lots and lots of foods and indulgences into endless of “unhealthy food” and “excessive food”. Nevertheless, it is the season of joys and I think that it was all right in general to excuse us to be indulgent in all these at least for this period of time.
I believe irregardless of different festive celebration like this, the best part about this is family and relatives gathering. Many peoples traveling hundred to thousand of kilometers to gather for few days, relaxing through the holidays for such festival. Endless follow up on the stories, catching up on the time that we lost.
In traditional, the day before the Chinese New Year is one of the most important night, whereby family will gathered together to have a good dinner before the actual first day of the lunar Chinese New Year. Of course, what we are looking at is the festive itself, but in fact before that there was a lot of preparation needed to be done, like preparing the foods and ahh.. spring cleaning – a tradition whether by the whole house, cars and etc are clean.
In the past, for my grandparents, uncles and aunts, they will prepared all the foods and dishes by themselves and a complete sets of almost everything. But as time passes, a lot of the families began to do partial take aways or even dining out in the restaurant for the night before the Chinese New Year. Of course, in every movement in life, there are always pro and con. What so good about dining in the restaurant – less hectics and what we would said were sat in and dine. Prior to the following, a lot of the Chinese restaurant in Malaysia, due to the limited space and they would like to acquire a higher volume of business. Booking in advance was a must and prior to this, time slots are also set in so that each tables will have a more productivities rate. Due to the following factors, the joys of bonding, chit-chatting were greatly reduced. And the path of doing and preparing the dinners togethers were gone. This was a great different in comparing dinning in and eating out. To a certain degree, thought when we said that it was just a gathering dinner but in fact to a certain degree, though the processes of preparation, being busy are an important part of the festive season like this.
Below were the memories collection on the night of dinner for the Chinese New Year Lunar – 30th night gathering. And also a special thanks to all the family members who made all these wonderful memories and foods.
The above dish is one of my favorite – having it since very young times… and every year up to now the traditional still keep here. Superb
Of course, we don’t forget about the soup
Happy Chinese New Year & Gong Xi Fatt Chai to all.
Best wishes & lucks to all in 2017.
The main reason why I love photography is because it capture the moment in life – the sweet and sad memories.
With the fast pace of life whereby multiple roles, expectations and to achieve a balance life multi tasking are a necessary for me. Time and choice became an opportunities cost. And looking through life – a lot of families ties, friendship and partners broke up are because we forget the goods and remember the bads only. Sadly, this is the course of action for majorities of the population. When I found photography and taking pictures and starting writing down on blog, these things keep me alive and remember how these relationship are important to us. We can not focus on the bad only but to remind us the goods times together – the building of the platform is so important; simple things might be the best to remember and treasure are one of the key factor to simple and healthy lifestyle.
The following is a simple Sunday of chit chat and making homemade foods learning to experience and learnt from YouTube. It might be simple but I would said that this is an very enjoyable Sunday. Happy as well.
Practices make perfect – the first few run might be unsuccessful but in the end all went goods.
To summarize other than good foods, I would said that this was a very simple and enjoyable Sunday. And would like to thank and appreciate to make all these.
The end – have a nice day to all.
