闲聊

今天很难得能够与一位相隔两年没见的远方朋友见面闲聊,惊叹于她这两年的神奇遭遇。
神奇遭遇一:被老千欺骗了八万元
因为贪念而误信老千,老千是个年轻的打扮普通女子,相信背后有集团配合。入住五星级酒店,每天邀请贪心的朋友到酒店吃饭闲聊,每天以名车代步,身边有保镖,还说要购买游艇。。。然后设局欺骗他们购买将要清盘的电器店内的电器,及走私的可乐饮品。
神奇遭遇二:从鬼门关走一回
因为被小虫叮咬,身体过敏而昏迷进医院。症状吓人,身体变肿,发白,心跳几乎停止。。。结果被扎了好多针,包括强心针。。。还需要进入深切治疗所留院被观察。
她乘搭飞机的惊魂经历、父亲及家公被迷魂骗钱的际遇都很精彩。
除此之外,她从美容行业转型到房地产,室内设计及装修到回美容传销。。。实在很佩服他的能干以及千变万化的赚钱管道。
从中学习到,做人可以婉转一些,不一定死死板板的呆在一个行业。
Y not diversified?

今日煮乜餸?

每个星期天的早上,老公都会陪我到巴杀买菜,我们一买就买一星期的菜,所以如果没有大只佬帮忙我扛菜是十分辛苦的。
我们几乎每个星期买的东西都是大同小异的,因为kakak会煮的菜肴有限,所以买来买去都是重复的,也就是说,每星期都吃差不多同样的菜肴。

每星期重复吃的菜单:-
肉汤有:莲藕、老黄瓜、西洋菜、ABC、(咸菜、榨菜 - 这两款少做了,因为腌制菜对身体不好)、粉葛和淮山。
有时会滚菜汤:苋菜或一种深绿色的菜叶,(茎上有很多刺的哪个)忘了叫什么菜名,今天才用它来滚鸡蛋、瘦肉、猪肝汤。

青菜:通常是看菜市场那些菜看起来比较新鲜就买那些,假如早点到巴杀的话,我会去光顾那档卖自己种的菜档,通常十点之前,所有的菜都被卖光了。(煮法:多用清炒的。)

一菜一汤外,还会多一味:如鱼、虾、豆腐、茄子、炸鸡、鸡肉(最近这两个星期没有买过鸡肉,因为我的大只佬咳嗽好几个星期都还没好)、。。。还有什么???。。。好像是这么多了。。。so limited。 哦, 有时还有罐头“顶档”! 幸好我的大只佬不是很口叼的人,只要有一碗汤,他就能吃两大碗饭了。

有些东西我是不会买的,比如啦啦、田鸡、螃蟹、鱿鱼、墨鱼、南瓜、。。。还有很多,数不尽。其实我的两个瘦丫头很爱吃啦啦,但是kakak又不会煮,所以从来没有买过。

但是经过那天煮圣诞午餐的经验,今天我局然有勇气把啦啦买回家,因为我知道我一定能够找到烹煮的方法的。Kakak 见我买了他不会煮的东西就来问我怎么煮,我说你先把它洗净,浸在水里。待会儿我煮,我看kakak一定以为我很会煮,(*^__^*) 嘻嘻……
话没说完,我就赶快上网找师傅了。。。

我的综合菜单如下:
材料: 蒜米茸、姜丝、小辣椒(只放两个,因为丫头怕辣)、番茄、大半杯水、啦啦、少许盐和少许糖+九层塔(我家门前种的)。

成果是:不是好吃,是超好吃!
我已经吩咐kakak把做法写下,下次就是他煮给我吃了!

一家人过圣诞!

之前在商场拍下的圣诞气氛

今年的圣诞节,我们在家里过。
天还没亮,脑子里就安排着今天该煮些什么给家人们吃。(这是第一次,好多年没有这么做过,所以心里很紧张。)
嗯。。。因为早上要带孩子到巴杀旁边的理发店理发,所有早餐就在哪儿解决吧!
因为晚上我们会到爸爸家去庆祝圣诞,该会有很多吃的。那午餐,就准备些比较简单的吧!

构思是:炒面+腐竹薏米糖水+Ondeh-ondeh 甜品。
锁定了构思后就马上爬起来,(那时是早上7点)上网做功课,功课题目是:如何炒面,薏米糖水,ondeh-ondeh. (千万别笑我,皆因本小姐是家中的老幺,没有什么进厨房的经验,嫁人之后又有一个很会煮饭的大姑,生了老大之后又有工人煮给我吃,所以我实在没有什么机会大显身手。)

部落格实在是太棒了,我要的资料都多得不得了,真的要谢谢每天勤劳爬部落格的部落客。
结果我综合了几个部落格的资料,配合我原有和容易找到的材料,come out 我自己的recipe: -
(因为方便以后kakak可以煮给我们吃,还把菜单译成马来文)

Mee Goreng

Bahan-bahan A
Mee kering, bawang putih, kubis, sawi, sausage, udang, telur goreng.
Bahan-bahan B
Sos tiram, kicap cair, kicap hitam, lada putih, minyak bijan and 绍兴酒。

Cara masak:
1) Masal mee dengan air mendidih, direndam sebentar di air sejuk, tapis ais.
2) Panaskan minyak, masukkan bawang, udang, sausage, dan akhir sekali kubis and sawi.
3) Tambahkan bahan-bahan B, kemudian mee yang masak, goreng sebentar dengan api besar.

My husband asked me why kakak made one not as tasty as this one, how you cook this?
I said I cook with my heart mah...
Oh ya, it look not far away from what normally kakak cook, but everybody seemed enjoy it very much, may be I have the talent in it, hoh?

白果薏米腐竹鸡蛋糖水
This one very yummi, because 'lok juk liu 落足料'!
材料:exactly as the name: 白果+薏米+腐竹+鸡蛋+冰糖+水
1)洗净薏米,浸半小时。
2)浸软腐竹,白果去壳。
3) 水滚后加入白果及薏米,煲45分钟,后加入腐竹、冰糖,至糖溶化才加鸡蛋。

搞定啦!可上桌了!
卖相很不错!(相信我,虽然没有照片为证。)味道更是不得了,不会太甜,腐竹和鸡蛋滑得感觉不到他们的存在,白果和薏米是我的最爱,所以我超爱吃这一味。老公也同意我煮得很好吃。
但是两个女儿却不会欣赏,要靠逼的才勉强的喝了一点薏米水(水而已).

Ondeh-ondeh
想要做ondeh-ondeh是因为ondeh-ondeh有我很多中学时的回忆,记得有一次我们到阿瑞的家学做ondeh-ondeh, 林妈妈帮忙我们做,那时WaiYun的厨艺已经很厉害了,她是主厨,我倒忘了,那天除了煮ondeh-ondeh外,还煮了些什么?

因为太久以前的回忆了,所有忘了煮ondeh-ondeh的过程,(我竟然笨到连糯米粉加水就能变成糯米团都不懂) 结果花了很多时间找internet, 终于找到一个“画公仔画出肠” 的部落客,解决了我的问题。

Ingredients:
Glutinous flour, pandan leaves, gula melaka & grated coconut.

1) Sieve flour, add hot water, pandan juice, make a dough.
2) Wrap gula melaka (这个过程我最记得,因为我有份参与)
3)Boil water, put in 2 pcs pandan leaf, add some salt. (oops, I forgot to put in salt) But, why ah?
4) Cook till dough raise.
5) Mix with grated coconut (mixed with some salt)

这味的卖相却“麻麻地”,因为我没有足够的pandan叶,做不成绿色的糯米团,只有浅绿色的,但是味道却不赖哦!阿弟“最俾面”,吃了好几个。两个挑食的瘦丫头,只应酬式的吃了几个,但他们参与的部分却不少哦。我的目的就是要让他们参与,希望他们长大后有我教他们做ondeh-ondeh 的回忆!

圣诞午餐+甜品,任务成功完成!
结论是:我是有天分的!我给自己打80分!哈哈。。。呵呵。。。

Summary (March - July 2009)


It's been a long long time I did not update my blog, feel very very sorry...

My summaries for the past few months: -

March 10 to 18 - Visited Guang Zhou, attended a Beauty Fair, visited my dear uncle and cousins there, enjoyed free and leisure holidays there.

Places we visited: 陈家祠,上下九街,北京路,珠江夜游,长隆野生动物园,长隆大马戏,肇庆古城墙,肇庆七星岩,番禺宝墨园,大富山森林公园,樱花展,。。。









April - Could not recall what was busy about...?

May - Boe Yin's nanny asked for 2 weeks off, I decided to send Boe Yin to Taska for one month.
Since then, Boe Yin has been going to Taska until now. I hope the teachers treat him well, and he enjoys the life over there. Pity him, have to go to nursery at this very young age, he was only 21 months old.

May 16, we are able to group 13 ex-schllomates together to have our very first reunion gathering. Leong Kok Wah was selected as the chairman, to organise the next gathering.


May 19, my birthday. I have got my dream phone as my birthday present. Just a simple candle blowing session with the kids at home, no candle lights dinner but very warm feeling.

June 3, we went to a luxuries spa retreat. Four pretty women (Swee Wan, Wai Yun, Hung Mun and me) spend a whole day there, really relax and lazy day, it's nice to have such a pampering day once a year or twice. :-))) Wai Yun recommended a very nice book to me, "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, I bought it and start reading it, it really give me a lot of hints to make my jobs done successfully.

June 20, report card collection day. Both of them were not doing well in their exam, so they have got a very bad ranking in their class and form. I felt very sorry for them, because I have been let go on their study for the past 2 smesters. This made me have no chance to be lazy anymore, so from that day onwards, I tried my very best to guide them on their homework and encourage them a lot. I also suggested Shu Yin to stop going to tuition class, encourage her to study on her own and try to put on more effort. She agreed and stop going to the 3 sessions a week tuition class.

July 13, I hosted my very first Beauty Seminar in hotel, attendees about 30 pax. Compare to our target of 50 pax, it sounds not so good, but it was a good experience to me and hopefully we could have more than 50 pax in our next seminar.


July 18, we went back to hometown. To attend my cousin sister's daughter's wedding party, she was the eldest kid amongst all the cousins and siblings. So, we felt very happy for that and try not to miss the joyfull moments. Along the trip, we took the chance to visit the old aunties at hometown, one in Malim Nawar, one in Kampar and one in Chui Chak. They were very happy to see us. I hope one day when I'm old, still got friends to come to visit me too.


July 25, 2nd reunion gathering - Karaoke at IOI Mall. This time only 10 peoples turned up. Proposed next gathering in October, bowling session and Seafood dinner was suggested.

我响应328关灯一小时

大概一个星期以前,各大报章及媒体都在呼吁大众响应328关灯一小时的运动。我觉得关灯一小时不是很难,应该可以做得到。
今天早上,妈妈看了报纸也瞒紧张的,叫我要预备一些手电筒或蜡烛之类的东西以免万一。我忍不住笑了出来,跟老妈说,今晚不是停电,只是关灯运动。如果发生什么事情我们是可以开灯的。
到了公司,大姐及同事们也问起我这个问题,原来他们的时事常识也不比妈妈好。经过我的一番解释,大姐终于明白那是环保的一环,他也觉得应该要响应一下。为了我们的未来,我们的下一代。。。
晚上八点,吃过晚餐之后,老公在看电视,正播放的是晚间华语新闻,新闻播毕之前,广播员也呼吁大家响应这运动。我乘机会跟老公说我们待会儿也要关灯。他起初不赞成,后来我提议到楼上的露台去剥花生喝酒,他就很愿意的配合了。
我把家里及屋外多数的电灯都关上,只留下一两盏小灯,以照明过路。然后把准备好的两个玻璃杯,一包花生,一瓶我们爱喝的咖啡美酒,一大杯冰块拿到露台上,开始我们的环保关灯运动。
当时两个女儿没有在,只有弟弟倍我俩在露台上。弟弟也倍我们喝酒剥花生,当我们拿起酒杯敲击,他也要学我们的动作,也学喊"饮胜“,非常逗趣。
今天天气很凉快,在不是很多星星的夜空下,我们闲话家谈,品着那买了很久的美酒,相当悠闲写意。我很珍惜!

Gathering 聚会

I have 2 fantastic dates in these 2 days, on Thursday night, I talked less but laughed a lot, until my tears dropped several times. Last night, we chatted alot and do a lot of sharing...

I really appreciate that I have time to go out with friends. Thank you very much my dear mother and my dear husband. They helped me to take care of my kids when I was not around. This make me has no worries when I go out, many mothers do not have this allowance. 

Taken on Thursday night - met friends that never see each other for 20 years.
