Hakka Yong Taufu

I love taufu...i mean all sorts of taufu but one of my favorite is Hakka Yong Taufu.  Besides taufu, I will normally also make stuffed brinjals, lady fingers and one of Cyn's favourite - bitter gourd.
My hubby dislike taufu (or we called it tau kua because taufu is referred to the softer version) but he likes tau pok.  So, I will also make some tau pok for him.

Bitter gourd - Cyn can finish half of this in one meal.

This is the taufu

and tau pok for my hubby

(Source from cynmainemum.blogspot.com)

Ingredients :

5 pcs of Taufu (cut into half to make it triangle)
500gm of minced meat (I usually used pork)
1 small piece of salted fish (I will use ikan tenggiri) - cut about 1 - 1.5 cm
200gm of fresh fish paste (ikan tenggiri also)
1 tbsp of corn flour
salt
pepper
Enough cooking oil for frying

Method :

1) Heat the wok and fried the taufu till golden brown
2) Fried the salted fish. Use only the flesh
3) Next, mixed the minced meat, fish paste and salted fish with the corn flour
4) Add in the seasoning and mixed well
5) Now, you can stuff the meat mixture in the taufu
6) As I mentioned earlier, you can also use tau pok, brinjal, lady finger and bitter gourd
7) Arranged in a plate a steam for 20 minutes.
8) For the vegetable version, I will normally fried it first before steaming / cooking it.

New House

I am still waiting for the key to my new house. From mid of the year till end of the year, I am still waiting.  The latest news is before Chinese New Year.  The developer said they are waiting for the relevant authority approval.  We managed to sneak in last weekend to snap some photos.

This is the entrance.  The door is locked therefore we visited our neighbour on the left.
We actually planned to move in before CNY but look like we have to defer our plan.  The TNB meter is up and now waiting for SYABAS meter.  It is a double storey house and the size is 20 x 65.

Will have more updates on my new house soon.

Online coupon shopping

I am crazy about this buying online coupon.  I will make sure I visit the big deals website to see the latest offer.

Recently I bought one of this coupon from here.  So, to utilize the coupon, we went for the dinner last Saturday to celebrate Cyn academic achievement.  She got No. 5 in her class.  An improvement. 

The coupon I bought are this and this.

Cyn loves this especially the gravy.


 We really enjoy our food.  Yummy.

Standard 6

Cyn is 12 years old next year and will be sitting for UPSR.  Her school has this extra classes during coming holiday for all the student sitting for UPSR.

Her school holiday starts on this Friday and the extra classes start on 19 - 30 November 2012 for 2 weeks. Yesterday I was surprised by her transporter when she told me she can't fetch her during her extra classes and she will arranged another transporter.  Fair ! I paid her full this month i.e. RM 100 for only 6 schooling days.  So, the other transporter called me last night to inform me that she will charge me RM60 for the 2 weeks.  RM30 for each week.  I was shocked !  That's mean I have to pay RM160 in total.

I tried to negotiate with the 2nd transporter that I will send her in the morning and I just need someone to fetch after school.  She said the charge is the same whether it is one way or 2 way. WTH !
They really cut throat.

I have discussed with hubby and we agreed that he will send her in the morning and I will picked her up from school during my lunch time.  Solve the problem.  It is not that I am too stingy and want to save that RM60 but I think the charges is too ridiculous.  So now, she lost one customer for charging too much.

Children's day celebration

Today is Maine's kindy children's day celebration.  Everyone have to bring one type of food for the celebration.  I only got to know about it on Sunday night as I didn't read her message book.  I was thinking the whole day yesterday on what to cook for her to bring.  I don't want her to bring junk food even thought the children love it.

After cracking my head, I decided to do a simple skewer for her to bring.  I bought one packet of Ayamas sausages and 2 packets of fishball from the supermarket nearby last night.  To make it healthy and less mess for the children, I steamed all the item instead of frying it.

Below is the outcome and Maine is so happy with it.


I alternate the sausage and fishball with a small cube of cucumber

Cyn had her children day celebration last month and she just requested to buy some drinks for the celebration.  But she requested me to cook Red Bean Dessert for her Canteen Day end of last month.  She is so happy because her pot of red bean sold out so fast.

My birthday celebration

Another post about my birthday. Boringnyer....

My birthday was a quite one this year at my new office.  But one of my colleague surprised me with singing me birthday song once I entered my office. So sweet of her..  I was craving for KFC for weeks, therefore I told myself I must have KFC for my lunch (at my own expense).  To be exact, I am craving for this :-
KFC Zinger Double Down Special Combo Deal 2012

So, I quickly go and fetch Maine from her kindy during my lunch and headed to KFC which is nearby my house.  I ordered this KFC Zinger double down for myself and 2 sets of rice for my mum and 2 lovely daughters.

I was surprised with another lunch after I nicely enjoyed the double down.  My staff gave me a McDonald set lunch.  Wah...mcm mana nak makan....I just finished the drink and brought back the fries and burger for the kids at home.

Hubby bought 3 slices of cakes from Secret Recipes.  So, there is no candles for me this year.

Hubby dinner treat is on Saturday.  He brought me to Windmill Restaurant at Subang Jaya.  The dinner was superb.  He used to bring me to this restaurant before married but we used to patron the one in Bukit Raja.  Therefore, we thought to give this branch a try.  Enjoy the photos.
Bread & Butter.  The best combination and I love the bread so much.
Mushroom soup and shrimp cocktail.
My dinner.  Tiger prawn with cheese and garlic with grilled chicken with black pepper sauce.  Yummy

Hubby's dinner.  Grilled fish fillet with beef steak.  The steak is so tender. 

Dessert and coffee.

We ordered their monthly promotion which comes with all the above with 3 main course to choose from and a free gift.  We got mug as our free gift.  RM59.90++ for each set.  I had an enjoyable dinner with him.  After dinner, we went for our favourite movie - James Bond 007 Skyfall.  The movie was great.  Overall I had a wonderful weekend with him.  Love him forever.  No words could describe our love.
