Fried Bihun (Rice-flour Noodles) | Home Cook

"Firstly, put some oil, when the oil is hot, put in chopped garlic, follow by prawn or meat, after the meat is about to cook, put in bihun, then put......".   Standing in the kitchen and watching at mom frying bihun seems to be easy, step by step instructions were taught by this lovely mom to her daughter who does not know how to cook well. Her daughter forgot what her mom taught after walk out from the kitchen. And yes, the "daughter" here refers to me! But I am very thankful to have a great mom who can cook very delicious meals for her husband and children. Questions of "What to eat later? Where to eat?..." do not come across me as I have a great mom who will prepare lunch and dinner for us every day. However, this is no longer applicable to me during the time I stay alone at outstation. I have to cook and eat on my own.

 

Goma Dango ごまだんご | Japan Kinkakuji

Is anyone like the Cha Dango that I shared on previous post? Now, I would like to introduced another type of dango. As I mentioned before, there are varities of dangos that can be found in Japan, one is the Cha Dango which is made with green tea. The second type of dango that I am going to share now is black and white version of dango. What is the black and white ball ball stick shown in the picture? Well, the white balls are the dangos which are plain dangos while the blacky is kuro goma (black sesame). It doesn's look tempting to me at all, but since there was a free tasting sample, why should I miss the chance ?  

 

Instant Ramen Museum | Osaka, Japan

Instant Ramen Museum is located at Ikeda-shi, Osaka. You can experience making your own cup noodle here. If you would like to make noodle from sratch, here is the place for you too. Besides, the history of the chicken ramen development, which is the world’s first instant ramen, and the changes in many products over the years can be found here too. Entrance is free unless you want to buy cup noodle or attend the making noodle class. I visited this museum to make my cup noodle. After seeing through the ramen history and development process, I bought two empty cups from vending machine inside the museum, 300 yen per cup. Then I was arranged to sit at "art class corner" to draw and decorate my cup. After finished, I proceed to collect my ramen and choose the ingredients I like. You can choose 4 out of 10 ingredients. Then you can choose your soup base before proceed to final packing. It is fun to make your own cup noodle, I did not join the making noodle class as it is reservation at earlier time. Overall, it was a fun experience here and I will enjoy my cup noodle with Camus after return to Penang.

 

Japan Mini Red Apple | 日本ミニりんご

I saw a very cute mini red apple when I am shopping in OIOI shopping complex last weekend. I was looking for various kind of fruits at that time and unexpectedly I saw those mini apples. I was so excited and thinking to buy it but at the end I walked back with empty hands as we were too hungry and rushing for dinner. I was regretted for not buying the mini apples and keep thinking on the cute apple for few days.

LifeOrI had too much meat recently. Yes, I mean not only my food consumption, but also my body. My body fat is hard to reduce, everyday sitting in office after heavy lunch gained me a lot of weight.

Recently, we went for vegetarian meals for lunch to reduce my guilty after consumed so much meat and oily foods. My colleague recommended this organic restaurant that serve vegetarian in Sg Ara, Life Organic. The aunty who served us said the shop is already opened for more than two years, but I did not realise it until my colleague brought us there. It is an organic shop that not only sell many organic products, but also serve lunch and dinner.

For the first time, I ate fried tomyam bihun. It tasted good and came with lot of vegetable. Portion is quite big for me.

The favourite dish among us is Lei Cha. Lei Cha is a popular dish in Hakka food. I ordered this during my second visit. It is rice with few side dishes (peanut, long bean, dried bean curd, carrot, dried radish) and a bowl of greeny soup. This greeny soup is blended and cooked from few types of green vegetable. One of it that contribute the most to the taste is basil leaves 九层塔. Not all people can accept this taste as it is a bit weird or smelly to some people. We have more than one colleague that ordered this and just consume few scoop, then throw it to other.

If you do not like greeny basil soup, you can opt for other like dry laksa. Dry laksa with spegetti is towards sour taste, but you won't find "real" fish in your laksa soup as this shop serves all vegetarian. Request to change for rice vermicelli (bihun) if you do not like spegetti with laksa. Sound weird? No worry, trying is to catch a wind, just pay for RM6.90 and you will get the wind.

Well, my third time visit, I order fried mi sua. I forgot to take picture of it but is was delicious too. Not spicy but more to sweet and salty taste.

Kam heong fried spegetti, fried spegetti in spicy sauce.

LifeOr_4

Lam Pooi, rice in "soup".

LifeOr_5

Spegetti.

LifeOr_8

Last but not least, not to forget their Bak Kut Teh which serve only twice a month on 1st and 15th of Lunar calendar day (初一十五). I have yet to try it until this moment.

All the above mentioned foods are RM6.90 each. Sky juice is provide for free and refillable.

Besides main dish (I do not include all at here), they have carrot cheese cake, dessert (tong shui), coffee and other beverage too. Organic products such as ten grain rice, beans, soy drink, oat BG, pop corn, almond drink and many more, electrical products like blender, girl's sanitary pad all can be found here. You can have your sweet shopping time here while waiting for your food.

So, give it a try today and move towards a healthier life.
