Snow Cod Pot (鳕鱼煲)

“Amazingly simple to cook Cod fish & vegetables dish, for your busy and lazy nights.”

Just as I said, this all-in-one fish dish was amazingly simple to assemble. Quick, easy and healthy.

It’s most suitable for young children as well as adults, in fact, all ages, to enjoy. Super healthy and delicious fish, plus vegetables of different colors, what else could we ask for? :)

A visit to Hello Kitty Town & Little Big Club and overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour in Johor, Malaysia

“If you ask me, I would tell you that this place was comfortably… fun.”

I wasn’t too enthusiastic to visit JB town initially as I knew I was going to bring the children there alone this time. Though the location wasn’t far from the Tuas second link exit, we decided to book the bus coach instead of self driving, at least we would be in a group along the way. And our plan was to return only the next day after an overnight stay at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour.

Hello Kitty Town & Little Big Club
Both themed parks were located in the same building block of 3 storey, just next to the main entrance of Hotel Jen. In fact, both the hotel and theme parks were within the same compound.

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.

Looking for Fun or Food in Club Med Bintan Ria?

“Vacation is about fun & food. When food is not a good enough option, look out for fun, most out of all!”

Revisiting Club Med Bintan Ria was my wish, and I just did, after 8 years. It was done with my two children, this time. I had something to say… Yea, once lauded Club Med Bintan in my old posts (year 2008) as one of the best all-inclusive resorts that served plentiful great food, I felt the obligation to pen down the latest experience of my most recent visit there.

As a foodie alike, my emphasis was always on the food. Food? Yes, food. There were only two restaurants serving their guests now. First, the main buffet restaurant, The Waterfall, was where we had all 3 meals a day throughout the stay, it had nothing much for me to shout about.

Fried XO Pork

“Use of air-fryer to roast the pork, before stir frying in wok to complete the dish.”

It was an impromptu idea to making of this dish. Just wanting to cook a dish tasted robust and yet able to feed my young boy as well. I thought it was easy to cook, and pleasant to taste.

Sounded deceptively complex, but in fact, the dish was easy and quick to assemble. I air fried the sliced meat to create some crispness to it before actually cooking in the wok. Air frying did help the seasoning sauce to fully absorb into the meat during the process. It also made the entire cooking less hassle with shortening of the wok-time.

Kam’s Roast Goose in Hong Kong (甘牌燒鵝)

“The perfect roast right in the city, of Hong Kong.”

As I was busy reviewing my old posts including those HK food posts, realized that I had not been sharing any new (and old) findings of my holiday trips in the last couple of years.

Yes, looking back on the photos, I found so many of those delicious food and eating places we had tried in Hong Kong. Kam’s Roast Goose was one of them.

This up and coming roast goose shop, Kam’s Roast Goose, was one of the top eating places in our travel itineraries. Though Kam’s was founded by one of the grandsons of the original founder of the iconic Yung Kee’s (鏞記), they did not adopt the same old formal elegant style, but a more approaching dining atmosphere. Kam’s seemed like a place you would think of anytime to settle for a quick hearty roast meal.
