Homegrown Tomatoes with Basil & Lemon Juice

Our local supermarkets have a monthly or quarterly free magazine called “shopping”. This magazine is mostly advertisements of products sold in the supermarkets but it also has tips, recipes, seasonal food, what’s new, flower arrangements, etc. I found this recipe in one of these magazines – have to finish up our homegrown tomatoes, you know.  🙂 Sorry, the photo isn’t very clear but I hope you got the idea.  🙂 Ingredients: 1 container of cherry tomatoes (abt 250g), halved 2tbsp chopped basil leaves 1 lemon for its juice 6 tbsp olive oil 1tsp garlic, minced salt and pepper airtight...

Hokkien Mee 1

My sister, Mei Leng, cooked my mum’s version of Hokkien Mee for me during one of her earlier visits coz I missed it so very much. The type of fat noodles required aren’t found here, so I used the nearest type I can find. It’s a little thinner and flater. Dunster likes it very much too, so when I make it (which is about once a month), I always make extra helpings.  🙂 My version is made with the flat egg noodles and fine beehoon (rice vermicelli). Ingredients: (forgot to take measurements – another time, then) pork, sliced thinly;...

Malaysia’s Independence Day

31 August 52 years ago, Malaysia gained her independence from Britain. 31 August 1957 was the day when Malaysia is no long a colony of Britain. 31 August is the day Malaysians celebrate their Independence Day.. Hip, hip Hoera!!!  🙂 Just too bad that I’m not in Malaysia to celebrate this day together with my fellow Malaysians!!  🙁 Rate this post if you like: (No Ratings Yet)...

The last few days..

Must be wondering why I uploaded 4 posts today and not consistently of at least 1 a day. Well, I was a little occupied with building up my farm at Farmville on Facebook. Was tagged by a few friends some time ago but never really checked it out until about 7 days ago. I was seriously hooked from the beginning and was constantly on Facebook to check on the progress and procuring of animals, veg plots and fruit trees to build-up and occupy my farm. It’s going on nicely.. 🙂 I had also been spending a lot of time reading JD Robb’s Eve Dallas series online. I started about 2 years ago and read the series from 1-25. A few weeks ago, I downloaded series 26 to 34 but am still missing 33 which I can wait a little while. I’ve finished re-reading 22-25, reading 26-27 and am now reading 28. It’s a sort of homicide detective with romance mixed in. I quite enjoy reading the Eve Dallas series. JD Robb is actually Nora Roberts. Nora Roberts writes romance/family ties and I do read her romance books as well. I’m actually more of a fantasy series reader but am at the moment trying to read other types of book. Well, I’m an avid reader and always have a book or magazine in my hands. I can do that now...
