Beef it up…

My daughter was home for the weekend as usual and we went out to town on Saturday morning to run a few errands. We stopped by here for her favourite – beef noodles…

The chili dip was exceptionally hot that day – probably they added a lot of cili padi and could give Kah Hiong’s a fight. Of course, the noodles would pale in comparison but this is just about the best we have here and it is pretty nice as well. I had the special – the one with the tendons and the tripe…

All in all, the total came up to RM15.50, inclusive of my kopi-o-peng and my daughter’s peppermint tea. That’s a bit pricey, I would think…but beef here doesn’t come cheap, not at all, so I guess that would explain everything.

I did not cook anything special for my girl over the weekend as she had a dinner function to attend at a local hotel here the same day she came home – Friday…but as usual, the mum was cooking and packing a whole lot of things for her to take back to Selangau so all she would have to do would be to heat it up and eat – no need to go through the chore of cooking her meals herself.

On my part, I did fry her some mihun with corned beef…

I used this brand…

…which is as good as the one I would usually buy and they’re both around more or less the same price which is a whole lot cheaper than all those imported brands.

There was some leftover rice in the fridge so I took that and whipped for her some fried rice with salted fish…

…plus some fried ikan bilis and thinly-sliced omelette added.

This way, she would not even have to cook her own rice. Just heat these up and eat with one of the mum’s special dishes – that would be one wholesome meal by itself already, I’m sure…unlike some of the meals some of these young teachers living on their own are having all the time (I’ve even seen their photos on Facebook!) – instant noodles!
