Our simple dinner on 210409

We love spicy food .. we really do :) So each time, when we are desperate for spicy food, we will definately take a cab to Wan Chai to makan. But each time, we have our meal there, it is NOT cheap. The fare for cab per way will costs us about HK150 .. so it is quite expensive just to have a decent meal :)

So, people like me that is kiamsiap will definately try to cook more spicy food at home .. . hahaha .. to save money :) Ok .. for dinner tonight, we have decided to have nasi lemak with sambal ikan bilis/Burmese Meat Curry - I used pork/kacang/timun and hard boiled eggs.

Let's have a look what I have prepared :)

Verdict : Both bosses love everything!!!! It is my first time cooking the burmese curry but it turns out perfect. Misha said that even the sambal ikan bilis is lovely - do you know why? hahaha ... it is because i grind the ingredients MYSELF rather than using those ingredients that I bought from KL Market .. hahaha .. see .. sendiri made ingredients definately taste better :)

Ok lar .. that's all for now :) Ta ta :) and have a nice day :)

Bento #59 @ 23 April 2009

Misha had requested for salmon for her school lunch. Bought a slice of salmon from the supermarket - marinated it overnight then, pan grill it on the morning :)

Let's have a look at her simple lunch

pan-grilled salmon/french beans/brocolli/grilled potatoes/sweet corn and grapes :)

After school : - Misha finished everything in the lunch box! She loved the salmon very much and she said that the salmon tasted very nice. Told her, of course the salmon was nice, it was marinated with so many different ingredients and it was left overnight in the fridge.

She asked me to prepare salmon again for her next week - guess I need to go to supermarket again on Wednesday to get a slice of salmon for her :) Ok lar, that's all for now .. bye and take care!

Bento #58 @ 20 April 2009

Today is the first day of school after the Easter holidays! I have prepared lunch for Misha. Let's have a look what's for her lunch :)

Tomato rice/grilled beef/tandori prawns/brocolli/cherry tomatoes decorated with two small eggs as cute looking chicks!

After school :- Misha mentioned that the grilled beef is nice BUT the tandori prawns are a bit wet. Maybe I should get rid of the "rempah" before grilling them. She loves the tomatoes rice very much and guess what I had the rice for lunch. Only the rice and it was tasty!!

Books ... :)

Misha and myself will usually spend about 2 hours in a bookshop, usually on Friday. The reason is because we have to wait for Daddy to finish his work (yeah yeah ... at about 8pm) so that we can have dinner together since Misha's skating lesson ends at 5:30, so we basically have more than 2.5 hours to kill.

Where else to go especially it is a shopping complex that you go every week. So .. bookshop!!! Hahaha ... well, reading books in bookshop does not mean that we did not purchase any book. Every week, definately spend money on books.

Let's have a look what I have bought :-

Yeah .. Mao's Last Dancer. A friend told me that I have to read this ... ok lar .. buy lor .. at this moment, only read like 10 pages .. hahaha .. long way to go :)
The remaining books are recipe books. Planning what to cook for the week is quite hectic. Usually on the weekends, I will spend some time planning the menu for the week eg what to cook, what to buy from the market, what to buy from the supermarket, etc etc ... so .. hehehe .. no easy :)

Let's have a look what recipe books I have bought :)

curry bible

how to make cupcakes

365 dish a day

Ok ok .. like Misha says, I have to start planning since I already bought couple of recipe books to try out the recipe :)

That's all for now, folks!

Misha will have TOM with her mates during lunch time today and she requested for sandwiches so that it is easier for her to eat.

I really do not know what type of sandwiches she wanted, so I just prepared ham sandwich for her. Simple and nice, I hope :)

Cut the bread into car shapes - decorated with leftover hams and cheese :)

Hope she loves it!

Bento # 61 @ 18 March 2009

18 March 2009

I went to one of the Jap Mum's bento blog couple of days ago and saw one lovely bento that she has prepared. It looked really cute and I decided to COPY hers :)

Yesterday, went to bakery to buy the buns. Let's have a look what I have prepared for Misha's lunch today.


misha's lunch consisted of one egg tart/one "sandwich" with SPAM and another "sandwich" with sambal ikan bilis"/some tit bits and of course another container of fruits :)

That's what she had for lunch today and guess what, she told me that the "sandwiches" looked like gong gong (grandfather) and poh poh (grandmother) hahaha ... silly little girl !
