Back to school

We have been invited back to school for those who are graduated from year 1991. Thanks to the organizer, the former schoolmate who had arranged this gathering event in June. We had a precious moment that we met back all our old classmate after 20years. The funny thing is we recognized the face but can't remember the name so we always stared at people chest where the name badge was there. :o) Some of us like me forgot the class name. And we are not allow to put English name as we only remember the full name.

This is the canteen, we all preferred the old wooden long table and benches. Now is like McD's table hahaha.

This is the toilet. Last time no picture on the wall. Now like penjara pudu..Last time the toilet quite small.

30 Minutes Meal #1

Last time, I didn't always cook dinner on the weekday . I used to take dinner outside after picked up my daugh from the school. Because of bored of eating outside I have started to cook dinner lately. Although it is a bit tedious for me after worked have to pick my daugh from school and have to prepared dinner. So everyday I have to think about the quick and easy recipe. I will sometimes cook anchovies noodle soup, boiling soup while shower my daugh, steamed meat and rice together which save a lot of time.

Cocoa butter cake

I have been craving for choc cake  last few weeks until last sat i decided to bake a cocoa butter cake. I got the recipe from Nasilemaklover's blog. I love to read her blog with full of nasi lemak recipes. I have been bookmarked some recipes just to wait for my time to get ready to do it. The cake smell very nice with the light coffee aroma. I have to bake for 40-45mins maybe due to my small oven instead of 30mins from the original recipe.

Ribena Cheesecake

This year is my first time to made a cheesecake for my daugh's birthday. I have been browsed through the blogger's website to source the cheesecake recipe. Finally, i found this simple and nice no bake Ribena cheesecake from Happyhomebaking's blog. I'm not a cheesecake lover and i found this recipe not so cheesy taste as i think that maybe due to the combination of cheese and yogurt. Love it.

I used the wrong size of the round pan. The original pan was 18-20cm but i used 9'in cake pan therefore the cake came out thinner than the original recipe. :oP

Hakka Stuffed Beancurd in Black Eyed Bean Soup

I would like to share a Hakka recipe here. My dialect is Hakka and i loves to eat my mom homecook hakka food. She is very good in making of dumpling (ba chang). I feel that the process of cooking the ingredients and wrap the dumpling quite tedious.

I cooked the "yeong tau fu" last week for dinner. The original recipe was Beancurd (tofu) only but i cooked the bitter gourd together since i had leftover in the fridge. The recipe was adapted from "Hakka An Inspiring Collection Hakka Foods" as shown below. I always don't know how to cook the sauce for yeong tau fu after refer to this recipe book that it was cook with the black-eyed bean soup which i personally thought that it is healthier than the oyster sauce.

Ingredients (A):
10 pcs fried beancurd (I used the normal beancurd), some chopped spring onion

Ingredients (B):
50gm black-eyed bean (soak in water for 30mins), 1no whole chicken carcass, 1/2 tsp salt, 500ml water.

Filling :
200gm minced pork (with fat), 150gm fish paste, 30gm dried shrimps (deep-fry till crispy, pounded), 30gm "mui heong" salted fish fillet (diced, shallow-fry till fragrant), 1tbsp corn flour

Seasoning :
1/8tsp cumin pounded (i omitted this one), 1/4tsp salt, 1/2 sugar, 1/2 tsp pepper

1. To make filling, combine the filling ingredients with seasoning, mix till sticky, set aside. (i prepared the filling the night before and kept in the fridge)

2. Cut each beancurd into triangular pieces, make a small cavity, stuff in filling mixture until full. For bitter gourd, dry clean the inner part before stuff the filling (i didn't clean it, the filling came out. After checked with my in law then i realised that the inner part have to be dry clean) :oP

3. Place the stuffed beancurds and stuffed bitter gourd in a sauce pan (filling face side down), shallow-fry with some oil until golden brown, remove from heat. 

4. Put black-eyed beans in a soup pot, add chicken carcass and water, bring to boil. Covered, lower the heat, cook for 30mins until the black-eyed beans are soften.

5. Add in stuffed beancurds and bitter gourds, simmer it for 3 mins, season with salt. Dish out, sprinkle with spring onion before serve.
