Dinner Photos With My Dear Fuji Finepix F31.

April 18, 2008

I finally had my fixed up Fuji Finepix F31 camera delivered to my place this evening! 🙂 And I just had to use it to snap away at my dinner. I was so close to kissing my camera, heh.

A huge bowl of carrot, potato & onion soup in our pressure cooker plus my mum’s hand. 🙂

Sesame chicken, stir-fried with ginger and spring onions.

Prawns and onions in a super spicy sweet and sour sauce. It was my favourite dish tonight.

Dinner isn’t complete without a vegetable dish. Spinich with chilli-padi.

😀 I am so happy I got back my fabulous camera.

An Amazing Home Cooked Dinner Again.

March 16, 2008

As usual, I’m very blessed with a helper that can cook so well. This was what we had for dinner today. It served more than the 10 pax present at dinner. What a spread it was.

My favourite dish was the fried eggplant with sambal prawn paste.

Crab meat with mushroom.

Deep fried tau-kua (a harder version of the tofu).

Deep fried fish.

Deep fried pork pieces.

Deep fried chicken wings (though a little burnt but still delicious).

Stewed duck and pork (this was purchased by my mother).

Spinich and ikan bilis.

Fried egg with spring onions.

Did I just make you hungry? 😛

My Home-cooked Meals.

March 2, 2008

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. 😀

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. 🙂
