Steamed Minced Pork with Mei Cai (Preserved Vegetable) 梅菜蒸肉饼

“It’s always known as the childhood dish cooked by grandma…..”

One of the regular Asian dishes often cooked by grandma back in our childhood days. It’s nothing fanciful, and almost every household knows how to make this. However, this simple pork dish carries most memorable childhood moments as well as the home-feel taste for most people.

I would cook this once in a while, simple reason, it goes just so well with a plate of hot steamed rice! And, it’s just too simple to cook! More

Two Remedy Drinks To Sooth A Cold

“Remedies for (almost) instant cold relief, easily made at home. One remedy for me, and one for son.”

I wasn’t too sure, or it was just me. I noticed that the cold & flu viruses and bacteria just wouldn’t go away, everywhere. Perhaps it was my low immunity, it was the hot weather, it was due to my constant late sleep… Son’s schoolmates were taking turn to fall sick all the time, too… Both my son and I were having a cold. For me, the symptoms of body aches, nasal congestion, runny nose and sore throat were noticeable before taking the hot lemon coke (cola). I hadn’t thought of having it until 2 days later. As soon as I did, I felt an instant relief of these symptoms in me. Yes, it soothed my throat and chest as well as feeling less stuffy of my nose. It even felt dry for quite a while. It worked for me. :)

In the midst of sharing my food experiences in Hong Kong, I did not forget my house recipes.

Today, I would like to share this clear soup recipe which involves fresh Chinese Yam. In Chinese, we called it fresh Huai Shan (鲜淮山) or Shan Yao (山药). Whatever you called it, this is a very good natural food you should be taking regularly, in normal circumstances. More

No-Meat Diet

“No-Meat Meals for You and Me”

My colleague consulted me if having no-meat diets over a period will help in weight lose and slimming purposes. My answer is YES, to a certain extent (depends on its cooking method and ingredients mixed).

Just to share my experience and personal view with you here…

I had no-meat diet, for a period of 3-month long. It indeed helps me to slim down my body, in weight controlling and gain better health. More
