Chicken Noodle

One of the best chicken noodle I’ve tasted is found at one of the shophouses in Desa Aman Puri. It is really yummy. They also serve fish ball and bean sprouts. You can either have your chicken mixed in the noodle or separately.

Deal Or No Deal

I rarely watch TV (because no time) but “Deal Or No Deal” happens to be one of the shows that I watch regularly.  Tonight’s segment has got to be one of the most exciting thus far because the contestant, John Ching actually took the chance of either going home with just RM0.10 or a sum of RM50,000.00.  As it turned out, he went home RM50,000.00 richer.  If it had been me, I wouldn’t have taken the chance and would have settled for the sum offered by the “banker”.

Dinner With The “Jewels”

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10.

Moira Goudie conducted the “More Precious Than Jewels” conference from 3 October to 22 December 2007. I attended the Wednesday night session for 12 weeks and at the end of the conference the “Jewels” (24 of us) had a buffet dinner at Zing Zang Cafe. Some brought their husbands and children along. More about what I learnt at the conference later. Right now, check out the food we had for dinner. Incidentally Zing Zang Cafe is located at 1-19A, Jalan Desa 1/5, Desa Aman Puri, Kuala Lumpur. They serve wholesome American Italian and Malaysian Chinese cuisine ……. no msg added. This is also a nice place to hold a small birthday or anniversary party as the cafe can seat about 60 people comfortably. And the food is very delicious, you have to try it to know what I mean. If you feel hungry after looking at the pictures, you can call the owners Alwin/Sharon at 03-62779661 for details.

Peranakan Place


My cousin, Aster and her husband Ollie, from Melbourne are in Kuala Lumpur for a holiday and we took them to 1 Utama to spend the day together. We had lunch at the Peranakan Place as all of us love nyonya food. The two food critics, Ah Loot and Aster have this to say about the food. The pandan chicken is so-so. The prawns fried in tamarind sauce is a bit too sour. It may not have been so sour if the cook had not removed the prawn shell. The assam fish and the fried paku pakis were delicious. The duck soup is tasty although it doesn’t look like the original duck soup that Ollie is accustomed to. The cincalok and sambal belacan were excellent and how do we know that? By just looking at the sweat dripping down Ollie’s face while he ate his rice mixed with the sambal belacan/cincalok. Poor Paul Kiah, he can only dream of the food. Never mind lah, maybe Aster will cook the nyonya food for him when she returns to Melbourne.

Kluang Station


After shopping and walking around 1 Utama for a couple of hours, we stopped by at the Kluang Station for some coffee.  This coffeeshop is perpetually full of customers, at least during the time we were there.  We had the popiah and karipap, both of which were hot and fresh.


I like the roti bakar, it was simply mouth watering.


While the rest of us had coffee, Aster had the sirap selasih.  I’m not much of a coffee drinker so I can’t comment much on the coffee.

Christmas Eve Dinner

Christmas eve was three days ago but I’ve only just managed to download the pictures of the food we had for dinner.  Ah Loot did the cooking while Mel and I helped in the preparation.  Below are the ingredients for the stuffing. Clockwise from the top left: chopped garlic, Chinese sausage, dried prawns, sliced black mushrooms, chestnuts and the “finished product”.  Ah Loot fried all these ingredients together with cooked rice and stuffed the “finished product” into the turkey.  The tablecloth was too gaudy so Ah Loot said we should put something below the bowls so that the pictures of the ingredients would come out clearer.


The turkey was then wrapped in aluminium foil and baked in the oven.


This chocolate cake was a hit with Mel’s friends.  They said Ah Loot can open a chocolate cake shop.


The other food we had:



I made this jelly.


Guess who joined us for dinner?
