Jelly Coconut Delivery

Saw this Funlink Food fb post about Coconut Jelly at MYR 8.50 nett each. Buy 4 to get a free Coconut so I bought 8 coconut jelly to get 2 foc coconuts at MYR 68 nett with free delivery. The Coconut Jelly with vacuum packed as above.

After removing the packaging.

Sweet cooling coconut jelly with white coconut meat still intact within the coconut shell so after eating all the jelly with the white coconut meat, one would be very full.

10 coconuts inside my fridge. I gave 4 coconut jellies and 2 coconut (drinks) away with 4 coconut jelly remaining for the two of us.

10.02 am - my breakfast of raw red, yellow, green bell peppers with slices of Massimo full wheat bread. I did not finish all the bell peppers because they will be stirfried with garlic and ham for lunch because only one of us can stand the taste of raw bell peppers and that person is me so the remaining bell peppers need to be stir-fried.

11.44 am - Blanched okras without seasonings placed together with not-my-lunch of stirfry red, yellow, green bell peppers, garlic and ham.

Reheated the soup calrose rice to be eaten with 125 g of wild boar curry for lunch.

12 noon - my share of lunch with 3 okras which I eat whole including the part near the stem. I also ensure that all the remaining curry gravy are eaten from the glass container.

3.14 pm - defrosted the one remaining 6 of 6 slices of cheese yam cake. I am going to miss this cake. So yummy. I ate 5 slices out of the total 6 slices within 6 days so I wonder how much weight did I gain from this cake but no fear, I will always buy cheese cakes to eat because I love to eat cakes.

5.30 pm - I ate 3 mung bean biscuits bought on Friday 1 May 2020 d45 and 1 pack of chocolate chips oats biscuits (3 in 1 pack).

6 pm - we finished off all the soup calrose rice by eating them with old cucumber soup with 2 braised duck gizzards that were bought on Saturday 23 May 2020 d67. Perhaps one day I will show the photo of an uncut duck gizzard which is not pretty but is very delicious to me. 

If you are curious, here is a photo of uncut duck gizzards. Very tasty when braised, do you dare to eat them? Many people love to eat them and this popular shop called Lao Tien Lu in Ximending, Taipei, Taiwan sells duck gizzard ready-to-eat-on-the-go at NTD 40 each which is about MYR 5.81 nett each but the ones I bought cost only MYR 1 nett each and is just as tasty. I know because I always go to Lao Tien Lu to buy one to eat just because I am already in Taipei.

Cheese Yam Cake

This time, I bought 3 cakes from CakesbyMia.C on fb. I have bought banana cakes from her previously on Saturday 25 April 2020 d39. This is a non-baked 6 inches cheese yam cake at MYR 98 nett.

It has 3 layers. The top layer is cheese, 2nd layer is yam paste, 3rd layer is cake. It is delicious because even though it is cheese, the taste is light so PH would be able to eat this cake. There are no artificial flavourings used. The yam taste is so authentic.

I cut the cake into 6 slices. Gave 1 slice away and I plan to eat one slice a day for the remaining 5 slices. As I am afraid that the cheese would go bad in the fridge, I store 3 slices into the freezer since I remember PH stores cakes in the freezer to keep them fresh.

This is one slice of the frozen cheese yam cake which is like ice cube. I defrost it for 1 hour in the fridge section and the cheese section turns soft enough, just nice to be eaten. The yam paste has icicles in it so it is like thick ice cream. The cake layer is soft enough and retained its taste so this cake is suitable for freezing.

This is a Honey Cheese Cake - MYR 30 nett.

It is a chiffon cheese cake with a moist honey cheese top layer. I ate 2 third of this cake and gave 1 third away.

Ate this last slice on Tuesday 26 May 2020 d70.

This is a cempedak cake at MYR 35 nett. The cempedak smell is so delicious! For cempedak lovers, this is a must-try as there are cempedak pieces inside the cake.

Size comparison between cempedak cake and honey cheese cake.

8.28 am. Breakfast cooked - omelette turned into scrambled eggs with red, yellow, green capsicums, onions and ham.

I went overboard and bought many baos (1 big bao, 1 vegetable bao, 1 lotus bao, 1 kaya bao, 1 lo mai kai MYR 4.5 nett and 3 siew mai MYR 3 nett = total is MYR 17 nett) on Monday 25 May 2020 d69) so I have to finish these two remaining baos from the fridge at 11.27 am.

Green bao is lotus bao and white bao is kaya bao. Quite ok. I like to eat baos so I can easily finish these two baos on my own.

This is the vegetable bao I ate on Monday with mushrooms and jicama fillings.

One siew mai eaten on Monday too.

This is the barley pumpkin tong sui bought on Sunday 24 May 2020 d68 but eaten on Monday.

12.23 noon - my share of scrambled eggs.

12.26 pm - Not my lunch of rice from the previous day, lettuce and wild boar curry.

250 g of wild boar curry here. The taste is quite gamey which we like. Still have half remaining so into the fridge it went.

16.16 defrost another slice of cheese yam cake to eat so 1 more slice left in the freezer. For dinner, I just ate one piece of duck meat bought on Saturday 23 May 2020 d67 with a bit of instant noodles and lettuce from the shared dinner and then two slices of green rainbow sprouted grain bread.

Roast chicken fish paste

Over the long weekend, I read two very touching articles so I would like to share them here:
1. A young woman makes COVID-19 warning her dad's final gift to the world by reuters.
2. Special Report: In Oklahoma pork-packing town, COVID stirs fear, faith and sorrow by reuters.

I quote an excerpt from Article 1:
"As the United States opens up, Jose’s family agreed to be photographed and interviewed because they thought their gut-wrenching reality might help save lives.
“I feel like some people are failing to understand that this is serious,” said his daughter, Jessica Holguin, 25. “This is real. It’s literally killing people. It’s killing our communities, our loved ones, our friends, our family members, moms, dads, brothers, sisters.”
“Don’t take your life for granted. Wear your masks,” said Jessica. “Take precautions.”"

We were passing Sushi Mentai at Sri Petaling at around 6 pm and saw that there were many people standing outside the eatery without 1 meter between them. We did not go near to see what it is all about but guess that it is either they are waiting to dine-in or waiting for their take-aways. Good news for Sushi Mentai for having good business but no so good news for CMCO because they are not exactly 1 meter apart from each other.

Bought this boneless half chicken from CY Essentials by Cheryl fb at MYR 37 nett.

It is a special dish because beneath the chicken meat, there are fish paste made from Spanish Mackerel fish. The fish paste is very flavourful, full of umami taste. Cheryl also sells other products such as uncooked ytf for customers to cook at home.

10.41 am - went out for an errand so at the same time, bought our favourite yee mee pork noodles at MYR 6.50 nett from Swee Heng coffee shop in Sri Petaling which has not opened for dine in yet which makes it easier to buy takeaway from there without having to maneuver through tables and chairs since the shop has removed all tables and chairs from the floor.

At the same time, from the same shop, I buy a pack of CKT at MYR 7 nett.

11.18 am - this is my portion.

To my horror, the broccoli that was delivered on Saturday 23 May 2020 d67 is halfway to full yellow in the fridge so I quickly washed and microwaved it with just a tablespoon of water.

Eating it plain without any seasonings, without any oil.

Then I washed and cut the traffic light bell peppers. Cut and eat, cut and eat since I like eating them raw. The red bell pepper is the sweetest. The yellow bell pepper has the mildest taste amongst the 3 of them. The green bell pepper has a raw green taste. Then keep the remaining in the fridge because they will be made into an omelette.

Two cups of Calrose rice cooked with soup over stove fire with mushrooms, gingers, smoky streaky bacon, garlic so it is very flavourful but not salty as no salt was used. The whole dish reminds me of risotto.

Also bought 500 g of frozen curry wild boar (MYR 29 nett) and 500 g of frozen curry mutton (MYR 39 nett) from Cheryl. She is kind enough to pack each of them into two containers so that I can defrost just one container for a day's meals.

Contactless Delivery on Tuesday 26 May 2020 d70. Delivery fee is MYR 10 nett.

12.33 noon - finished both kap chung and red bean ham chim peang bought from Lai Lai Dessert Shop two days ago on Sunday 24 May 2020 d68.

Cherry Blossoms vs Macadamia Salted Caramel Magnum Ice Cream

Yesterday I dropped by 711 and was pleasantly surprised to find two new flavours of Magnum Ice cream because I like to eat ice cream. Cherry Blossoms at MYR 5.30 nett.

And Macadamia Salted Caramel at MYR 5.30 nett.

The Cherry Blossoms - Sakura flavoured ice cream with swirls of Cherry sauce coated with pink Belgian chocolate with Cherry fruit pieces. The Cherry fruit pieces on the coating give the sweet ice cream a slight sourish taste which is refreshing. Overall the taste reminds me of Choya Umeshu which I like but some people may not like this unique taste.

The Macadamia nuts embedded in the smooth Belgian chocolate coating are very creamy nutty. The ice cream tastes like Werther's Original caramel candy but is a bit salty. Very interesting taste which I like.

Made in Thailand

Made in Indonesia

I like the taste of both of these new flavours because they are not as sweet as those other Magnum ice creams such as the classic chocolate coating vanilla ice cream and they have interesting flavours. I must eat both ice cream again before they are out of stock because they are limited flavours.

DIY Big Breakfast

8.55 am - Not my breakfast of Bacon, BBQ sausage, eggs, yellow cherry tomatoes and raw ice plants. I bought a can of baked beans for this big breakfast but was told too big, no need baked beans.

10.48 am - my breakfast of bacon, eggs, yellow cherry tomatoes and the remaining instant noodles with curry potatoes from the day before direct from the fridge without reheating.
