FIsh Ball Noodle Soup


Looks like the rainy season is here to stay though I don't know for how long. Alongside with the cold weather and as said in my recipe of "Prawn Wanton Noodle Soup", the best comfort food is none other than soupy noodle dishes. While its been usually ready made fish balls, this time around I made them from two fresh pieces of tenggiri/Indian mackerel and used the bones and skin for the broth/soup.

Lamingtons


Many a times I've said that I'm not a big fan of sweet stuffs though occasional I don't mind a tiny portion. Similarly, my other half also keeps his distance away from cakes, desserts and anything overly sweet. That is the main valid reason why I don't bake sweet goodies except once a while to practice my baking skills. Its such waste to bake when there's no takers at home. Whatever I bake, I pack up and give to others.

Copenhagen (Denmark) - Carlsberg Brewery


I was already feeling lethargic; a long flight from Malaysia, 3/4 day tour from the time we arrived at 11.00 in Copenhagen and without a shower for almost 30 hours. However, when the coach entered Valby (one of the 10 official districts in Copenhagen), I energetically bounced back; what else except the excitement of touring Carlsberg brewery; my favourite beer brand.

Thai Thai Revisited - Sunway Pyramid


Thai Thai known for its aspects of Thai food and drinks has been parked in the same location for as long as I can remember. Way back then, I had lunch in the restaurant. And just a couple of weeks ago, after doing some shopping, I returned again for dinner with my companion. It was past 8pm and the place was already filled close to full. We managed; squeezed ourselves at the empty table outside and patiently waited for 10 minutes to be served.

Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup


The heat wave for the past couple of months crazily almost knocked me out. Certainly I don't have anything nice to say about it; sweating profusely and literately bathing at least three times a day, electricity bill which sky-rocketed massively and the water rationing wasn't easy either because I had to way ahead plan my daily household chores like when to cook, clean, wash clothes etc etc.

Copenhagen (Denmark ) - Day 1 (Part 3)


Our day one tour of Copenhagen started at "The little mermaid", followed by "Gedion Fountain & St. Alban's Church" and next in line; Amalienborg Palace, spacious, clean, quiet and well guarded.

Laura Mercier Brilliant Glace Lip Gloss - Rose Prism


The beauty consultant from whom I purchased the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser was extremely professional and outstanding. She was really good in her job. Instead of letting me go, she brought out a few more products and explained each one of it without being forceful. She also gave me a sample or two, suggested that I try first and if I'm convinced, to come back again to buy. I sort of fell for the lip gloss she showed, spoke about and swiped on my hand; gorgeous, shiny and sparkle is the word.

Fish Sodhi (Fish in Coconut Milk Gravy)


Previously when I posted my Egg sodhi recipe, my good friend on facebook shared with me on how to made another type of it with fish.  She precisely suggested that I fry the fish first, after which to drown the pieces in the coconut milk gravy. It was a splendid idea because as I've said before, my other half practically survives with none other than fish.

Copenhagen (Denmark ) - Day 1 (Part 2)


On our way from "The Little Mermaid" and before arriving at Gefion Fountain, I kept looking out from the windows of the coach and continued with taking pictures;

Wajik (Sweet Glutinous Rice Cake)


I'm slightly struggling to precisely explain on what is wajik. Let me uphold my simplicity by keeping it simple to avoid unnecessary confusion. Malaysians I'm sure don't need any further explanation; wajik obviously is made with glutinious rice or pulut, coconut milk, palm sugar and scented with screwpine/pandan leaves.

Copenhagen (Denmark ) - Day 1 (Part 1)


I had a chance to travel again to another far away horizon from where I am; a tour to Denmark and Norway. Having been told about the weather, the sightseeing places and the itinerary, I packed my luggage with the necessary stuffs for a conducive holiday. We left KLIA, transited at Amsterdam and after the necessary clearance at Copenhagen airport, we left at about 11.30am for lunch in a Chinese restaurant, situated at Slotsholmen.

Spinach Bhaji (Fritters)


Bhaji is fritters and fritters is bhaji; that simple and let's stick to it instead of complicating anything for no apparent reason. You and I know; bhaji consist of besan flour as well as other common ingredients, mixed as batter and fried. I like spinach, I like onion and I like cumin seeds. These were mixed into the batter and fried; crispiness and awesomeness for any time is good time snack.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 (Caramel)


It's almost the same story when I frequent beauty stores with the intention of buying a certain product. Somehow or rather, I tend to hear out the opinion of professional beauty consultants on what they think about the product I have in mind. I enquired about CC Cream at Laura Mercier's beauty store and the beauty consultant on the other hand suggested that I should consider the tinted moisturiser; touted to;

Banana Bread


The story behind this banana bread is somewhat similar to the "Butter Cocoa Cake". In the intention of sharpening my baking skills. I flipped through my recipe collection and the nearest I found was "Bingka Pisang" though I vaguely remembered baking a banana bread long time ago. But that recipe just disappeared in thin air; I mean I couldn't find it; perhaps in an old scrapbook which I must have thrown while spring cleaning my drawers.

QQ Noodle House (SS15, Subang Jaya)


I walk up and down along SS15 at least twice in a week for a couple of reasons. And that's how I noticed QQ noodle house; one of the latest eateries among the rest still surviving in the area. Unlike Uncle Seng which is quite a distance away from where I'm based, this eatery is certainly nearer. Henceforth, we walked and made our way to the restaurant.

Butter Cocoa Cake


I totally agree that baking is therapeutic. But when you can't decide or have no clue whatsoever on what to bake, it causes unnecessary tension.  Initially I thought of going over my previous recipes of marble cake or butter cake. Somehow that didn't happen because I felt that I should try a different recipe for either one of it. Henceforth I found one for marble cake from bbcgoodfood.

Heritage Village - Jaya Shopping Centre (Section 14, Petaling Jaya)


Jaya shopping centre was my favorite hangout for the many years I resided in Petaling Jaya. Almost every day, I had a reason or perhaps found reasons to frequent it. After moving to another area, it was completely wipe out of my mind, though I was aware that the mall was revamped. Evidently when I set my foot again for a food tasting session in Heritage Village extended by HungryGoWhere, it appeared totally new and trending.

Maybelline Color Sensational Red Porcelain Lipstick


While before this I've been blowing hot air about good and clear skin, I won't deny the fact that a bright shade over lips can instantly perk up and enliven anyone's appearance. The bright shade I'm referring to is none other than a red lipstick. Well, I'm sure you will agree about the many choices of brands, hundreds of red shades and different types of lipsticks.

Uncle Seng Homemade Noodles - SS15, Subang Jaya


I have to salute whoever Uncle Seng is. He definitely have captured a good number of customers over the varieties of home made noodle dishes in his restaurant. I can vaguely remember my one and only solo trip to this restaurant many moons ago. It was by chance that I returned again for another lunch meal while we were driving around SS15 Subang Jaya. We circled the area a couple of times and had no choice but to double park in front of the restaurant.

Mango Salad (Vegetarian)


I've been advised to widen my circle of friends and these days, where else can you have millions of friends except prominently on facebook. Obviously, I'm contented with the number of friends I have but why not when people want to add you. Nevertheless, please bear in mind that it isn't about the numbers but also on interacting with our friends on social media.
