    Pretty well done and nice shots you've got...!!

    Btw, this year I last min then got a bit of free-time to do some shots, thus just only some really plain and simple-shots to present... later evening...!!

    Thanks, glad you like them. No choice bro, have family gathering every Mid-Autumn Festival and everybody has different likings. So gotta get different flavor and types of mooncakes to satisfy everyone

    Nah, your shots are good. I have checked them up, wonder how your durian mooncake tasted. Mine was a big flop this year, the one that tasted the best was in fact the least expensive ones.

    Hi kutten, thanks for dropping by Nah no worry, I don't know many poems either. Yup, 水调歌头 is one of my favorite too especially with its use in Teresa Teng (邓丽君)'s song 但愿人长久. Maybe also because it's written by Su Shi/Dongpo and I love Dong Po Rou (东坡肉) jk...
    Cheers....

    Default Home-cooked ~ Sesame Oil Chicken

    Sesame oil chicken (麻油鸡)

    This is a popular Chinese dish, often served to new mothers, during the confinement month after birth. Chinese believe that sesame oil and ginger are heaty ingredients which is good to strengthen and nourish the body of new mothers and is helpful to speed up recovery.

    Traditionally, the ingredient is quite simple with only chicken, ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce but I left out the ginger as my kids do not like its spiciness. I added onion, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, oyster sauce and a spoonful of rice wine.

    Default Home-cooked ~ Sweet Potato Leaves

    Sweet Potato Leaves in Sambal

    Sweet potato leaves are relatively inexpensive and easy to get here. I remember the days when they were everywhere; in the backyards, longkang and we didn't have to pay for it. They are excellent sources of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. I usually stir-fry it with minced dried shrimp and sambal (spicy chilli paste).

    Default Hawker food - Ngo Hiang

    Ngo Hiang/Wu Xiang

    Sharing some of my favorite hawker food and let me begin with the one on top of my list. Ngo Hiang/Goh Hiong or Wu Xiang is a unique Hokkien (or Teochew) dish originated in eastern China. The name itself (in Hokkien) means five spices - referring to the five-spice powder that is mixed in with the filling of the original ingredients.

    It is essentially a composition of various fried meats and vegetables and other ingredients, such as a sausage-esque roll consisting of minced pork and prawn (or fish) seasoned with five-spice powder, rolled inside a beancurd skin and deep-fried, lup cheong, cucumber, century egg, ginger, deep-fried egg, deep-fried beancurd, fishball and many others. It is usually served with chili sauce and a house-special sweet sauce. Many stalls in Singaporean food courts and hawker centers sell fried bee hoon with ngo hiang; this combination is common for breakfast and lunch. This dish is also popular in Malaysia and Indonesia but is a lil different from what we have in Singapore. I love the Indonesian style where they are served with hot sambal sauce, mixed with crushed anchovies or dried shrimps and lime.

    We had this dish in a hawker centre in AMK which is popular for its fried hokkien noodles, were kinda shocked when the stall auntie billed us $15.50 for 7 items (bean curd, century egg, sausage, crispy prawn fritter, sotong you tiao, ngo hiang and spicy fish cake).













    Thanks for viewing & have a pleasant weekend

    The Jackson centre Lao Zhong Zhong moved to the kopitiam beside the Jackson centre right? Taste was not as good as before but still the better 1 in this field

    Yes, they moved to a nearby coffeeshop which ws named after them. I agree they are still better thn most. They are one of the few who hand-make all their items (except for the tofu & egg perhaps), not sure whether they still do though. Also have more varieties, some items can only be found there. I love their sauce too, it's not only spicy but have this unique taste because of the sour plum sauce & chopped onions. Thn again, my family don't eat there as often as we used to.

    BBQ CHICKEN WINGS

    The following few are from my family favorite food hunting ground in Serangoon Garden Market/Food Centre (not Chomp Chomp). There are many nice food there; kway chap (frm the famous Blanco Court), pig organs soup (Soon Huat), duck rice, the super size fish-cakes/balls noodles and especially those stalls moved from Taman Serasi FC (mostly malay food), of course not forgetting our must have BBQ Chicken Wings.
