Non Fried Instant Noodles

We just finished a pack of this Cintan Non Fried Instant Noodles which is low fat as the noodles are steamed and air dried instead of being fried in oil. No added preservatives and no colouring so I like it.

We eat it dry like this sometimes with kfc chicken and vegetables for lunch.

This is my portion.

Since we have finished eating the non fried instant noodles, we will have to eat the usual instant noodles which we bought to see us through this stay at home time.
 Cintan MYR 3.75 each big pack of 5 individual packs and Maggi MYR 3.7 each big packs of 5 individual packs.

Kit Kat Sake

 Found these two kit kat exotic flavours in my fridge from a friend who went to Japan many months ago. Time to eat them during this time. One is "Kit Kat Okinawa Beni Imo Sweet Potato Flavour" and One is "Kit Kat Japan Sake Masuizumi Flavour". Masuizumi is famous for its Sake.

I shared this Kit Kat Sake with my spouse. The taste is very special because I can taste the distinct sake taste. It taste like "Jiu Niang" 酒釀 / 酒酿 / fermented glutinous rice wine which I ate in Taipei. The sake powder between the crispy vanilla wafers is coated by smooth white chocolate. Very delicious! I want to buy a whole packet to slowly enjoy but I don't think they are available in this country.

These are small dainty desserts in my fridge from Royce and Kit Kat. Eating one a day will bring us to a few days before 14 April 2020 (Tue).

 These are the packs of nuts and a pack of biscuits I bought during CNY this year. Did a stock check and saw them so it is time to eat them during this stay-at-home time too. Two packs each of 4 types: Roasted cashews, Baked Cashews, Pistachios from Camel Brand and Honey Roasted Cashew Nuts and Mixed Macadamias from Tong Garden Brand.

 The savoury crackers are packed directly into their packaging, without a transparent plastic container which some other biscuits have. This is good because there is one less plastic container to be thrown away. Guess I don't need to buy any more nuts to keep me busy at home.

Cereal Muesli

Way before MCO, I like to stock up on Post brand Great Grain cereal crunchy pecan (price ranges from MYR 17 to MYR 19 depending on whether there are promotions on the prices. Recently I bought yogood Macadamia muesli to try. 

Yesterday I ate the yogood muesli oats for dinner and I put in too much dried cranberries (ocean spray brand) until it was very sweet.

Expiry Date for both Post and YoGood.

yogood ingredients for this muesli oats

They even suggest two recipes. I just eat them just like that out of the box.

Red Bean Tong Sui

McD Smoky Beef Burger with Chipotle Sauce. Ala carte price inclusive of 6% SST is MYR 16.50 nett. I like the smoky taste and also the creamy Chipotle sauce.

 A medium value meal set that includes fries and drink costs MYR 20 nett inclusive of 6% SST.

My spouse cooked red bean tong sui which is only slightly sweet. I like the low level of sweetness so I ate a bowl full of red beans for lunch. The smoky beef burger was for breakfast.

 Ate this cold on the next day. Still tasty!

This is the honey chrysanthemum sugar used to cook the red bean tong sui. Not that sweet but just sweet enough to bring out the fragrance of the red beans. Sweet home brand. The above photo was copied from their website www.sweet-home.my

Instant Quaker Oats

 Instant Quaker Oats for my lunch.

 Add a whole can of Gulong braised peanuts without the gravy in the can for a savoury oats lunch. Very tasty and filling lunch.

 Why eat the whole can in one seating? Because I found this expired can of braised peanut hidden in my fridge. The bottom of the can says best before 24 11 2018, that is one year and 4 months ago.

 For breakfast, I ate a cold kfc chicken drumstick from my fridge. yummy!

 This is dessert. A thin and small piece of Royce Strawberry Milk Chocolate. Sweet but not as sweet as the white milk chocolate. I like the strawberry taste. This is a good time to clear my fridge of these chocolates which have been there for a long time.

 Our household rep went and bought some food from Jaya Grocer, Midvalley Mall. The usual Tulip or MaLing brand of luncheon meat are all sold out so bought MeiNing brand which we have not heard of. Made in China. Price is MYR 14.90 nett for the one without ham and MYR 15.50 nett for the one with ham.

 And one can of McCann Luncheon Meat 340g. Made in Singapore. No MSG added, no artificial colouring added,  trans fat free and gluten free. Price is MYR 13.10 nett. I won't know how they taste like because I won't be eating them as they are for my spouse.

Total price for three cans of luncheon meat is MYR 43.50 nett. In another super market, loud speakers keep reminding shoppers to queue 1 meter apart at the cashiers but the markers on the floor is only 1 feet apart. One meter is around 3 feets. Guess the person putting the markers on the floor didn't know it.

Instant Pumpkin Pan Mee

 Eat from the pan. Instant broad pumpkin pan mee with a piece of kfc chicken. The broth is prepared separately using instant clam miso sachet as the instant pumpkin pan mee does not provide any instant flavouring powder for its broth. I like the taste of the pan mee. It is soft because my spouse soaked it for one hour before cooking it else the pan mee will be not soft unless one cooks it for a long time until it is soft.

 This is the brand - INA. Broad pumpkin pan mee. No colouring added and no preservative. The "bricks" of dried pan mee are not individually packed.

The pan mee is my spouse's lunch. For my lunch, I ate this cold mcd sweet chili fish burger from my fridge. Tastes good to me yhough it is spicy by my standards. Ala carte price is MYR 12 nett.

KFC Soy Garlic Drumette

My spouse's lunch: Dry instant noodles with vege and KFC Soy Garlic Drumette.
I am still not cooking, all the cooking is done by my spouse.

I ate one piece out of these 5 pieces. The garlic taste is strong so for those who loves garlic, can order these to try. It is sweet and I couldn't detect any soy sauce tastes.

These are the prices for the choices on the delivery app.

McD Blueberry Cream Cheese Pie

 This blueberry cream cheese pie was available from 2 March 2020 onwards for a limited time but I didn't know it then. Once I saw this advert, I quickly on the McDelivery app to order it but it was out of stock. So sad. I hope it will be available again or return as a special pie next time.

 So I just order Filet-O-Fish and some other burgers. The food was sent via contactless delivery! They leave the food at a place you specified far away from you. After they have driven away, you can then go collect the food. Online payment only so no contact required with cash. Ala carte filet-o-fish is MYR 9.50 nett inclusive of 6% service charge and delivery fees is MYR 4 nett.

And ate a thin piece of white milk chocolate as dessert. This chocolate was very, very sweet. Luckily it was a very small and thin piece.

Ori Taste

 Ori Taste Brand Frozen Dumplings. Ten in one pack. The fillings available are: pork and chives (MYR 6.50 nett per pack), pork and celery, pork and mushrooms (MYR 4.50 nett per pack). These are Beijing style dumplings, not Cantonese style dumplings. I find them to be tasty.

I eat them just like that after they are cooked. To cook them, just remove them from the plastic packaging and put the whole lump of  frozen dumplings sticking together into a pot of water and bring to boil. if your pot is big they will separate from each other and float and the colour will change from white to darker when they are cooked.

WG One Only

 My friend's lunch at Chit Chat Corner, Happy Mansion, Section 17, PJ. Sweet and sour fish lunch set with rice and lo hon goa drink at MYR 12 nett. This was before the MCO.

After the experience of being too full after eating a main meal and tong sui dessert for lunch, I just ate tong sui this time. Just one bowl of green beans or mung beans sweet soup dessert for my lunch at MYR 3 nett. Delicious and filling!

Pepper Soup Mee Hoon

 Takeaway Pepper Soup Mee Hoon at MYR 8.50 nett to eat at home. It has pork balls, pork slices, pork stomach and intestines.

 Good to see that the coffee shops adhere to the restrictions not to have people dining in by removing the chairs from the tables.

Another coffee shop has removed all the chairs too.

I have been working from home for two days now starting from 18 March 2020 (Wednesday) and have not gone out at all. For lunch, I ate instant noodles in chicken wine soup with small bok choy. I bought the chicken wine soup for MYR 10 nett on 17 March 2020 Tuesday. Let's see what I do for food until 31 March 2020 since we cannot dine out and I don't cook at home. lolx!

Food with Love

Lunch from mom again: One hard boiled egg, 4 tablespoonfuls of brown rice, steamed pumpkin, steamed yam, and stir fry carrots, onions, green capsicums with bean curd slices. So tasty!

Lunch from Mom

 My sister gave me a bento for lunch to avoid crowded lunch places. It contains brown rice four tablespoonfuls, steamed pumpkin and yam and bittergourd, boiled peanuts, one hard boiled egg and one taopok with mui choy. I don't like gravy so this style of food suits me perfectly.

In the morning, this is my share of mee hoon with texture like glass noodles in hot pepper soup with pork liver, stomach and meat for MYR 8 nett. I added some yong tofu (MYR 1.5 per piece) from another stall.

New Menu House of Pok

Rice with two dishes of our choice from category A - salted fish pork and napa cabbage pork ribs tiny scallops soup at MYR 15.90++ (5% service charge and 6% sst = MYE 17.65 nett). There was a lot of soft napa cabbages in the soup so we like that. The salted fish pork is tasty too.

Congee with two dishes from Category B - choy sum and two braised hard boiled egg at MYR 11.90++ (MYR 13.209 nett). I will always order congee here because I like this type of congee instead of those very smooth congee. Braised hard boiled eggs are a must for me.

Total bill for 2 pax at House of Pok, Midvalley Mall - MYR 30.85 nett. It opens early at 10 am so just right for us because we like to eat brunch early at around 10 am. We were at another eatery earlier but the manager requested us to sit in a crowded area because he said the section we were sitting at is not open yet  even though everything looks fine at that section so we walked out to look for a less crowded restaurant and House of Pok it is then because it was too early for lunch so many tables are available.

Peach Gum dessert is very popular now.

I noticed they have added many dishes to their menu since 2018 so we may eat here more often to try out the new dishes.

We ordered A15 this time. Will try A16 pork chop next time..

ordered A24 this time. Will try A21 petai pork next time.

Dishes in Category B.

This time B11 is our choice because we wanted a vege dish.

B16 is a must for me.

Will try the MYR 29.90++ soup next time.

Pork lard rice is not for me as I don't like the taste of pork lard.

Will not order drinks here unless very thirsty. Please click on the above menu for a larger image to see the choices  of drinks available.
Top up with some food from Honolulu Cafe before we go home. This time the egg tart was under baked so the egg custard fillings were wobbly soft and has a bit of liquid on it. The pastry crust tasted doughy near the egg custard fillings.
