My Home-cooked Meals.

When I was young, my grandfather would cook my dinners for me. When I moved out to live with my mother, we stopped having home-cooked meals. It is only recently that God had blessed my family with a lovely helper that can cook really well. :D

This was a meal cooked for my entire family, just before a Mahjong game. There was mutton & potatoes in coconut sauce, broccoli & mushrooms, fried tofu with bean sprouts, fried chicken, egg omelette, prawns in tomato sauce and a soup dish (not shown in the photo).

This one is a simpler dinner for 5. I didn’t manage to take a photo of the soup. In Cantonese meals, it is a must to have a soup dish. My family believes in cooking our soup in a pressure cooker to attain the best results. In this meal, there was steamed fish, deep fried mashed potatoes and spinach.

As much as I love eating home-cooked meals, sometimes it is nice to eat out. I consider Singapore to be a food paradise, with many 24-hour eateries to choose from. There is always something to eat.

This was a seafood dinner treat by a friend sometime back. There were only 5 of us, but somehow we cleared almost all the plates. There was sambal stingray, cockles, prawns, squid, etc. We Singaporeans love to eat and we live to eat. :)

    I love these pictures. I’m starving now. Could you find room for one more person at the table? I’ll fly over there from Texas right now. ;)
