Sylvia’s mother…

Well, it wasn’t her mother but Sylvia herself who uploaded these photos onto Facebook and tagged me…

…and she said, “…thanks for sharing your recipe with your readers.” That, of course, was the tuna sweet potato porridge that I had featured in a post recently. She also mentioned that it tasted nice.

I wonder who else have tried out the stuff I have posted in my blog. I know Stella made some popiah following the steps I showed in this post and this one too

…and sometime ago, Pollie made some sambal timun the way my mum used to do it…

…and she mentioned that she brought it along to a pot luck party and everyone loved it.

Then, there was Chrisanakapai as well who tried out my steamed pork with cincaluk dish…and she declaredΒ in her own words, “STP, very sedap lah. Licin habis kena sapu la this lauk…”

  1. *cries* So far, just your Shepherd’s pie… but I burnt it… not nice. Shy la, share. People will laugh at me again. Haizzz…wait til I free, i try some of your recipe and make sure it does justice to it. (Ok, I’m vain, I know!)

    Ah!!! I remember now! I think Yan of also made my version of the shepherd pie with corned beef and her children loved it. You? Ah well…that was when you used to burn everything you baked in your oven. I’m sure it will turn out ok this time around…

  2. hehe now sure many will look back to those previous post and do it according to ur recipe. πŸ™‚ but i never eat tuna in porridge eh.. is it nice?? am wondering. i’ve been eating porridge everyday day this week. :S bored of fish fillet, minced meat, prawn n crab.. need something new. huhu. 😦

    Go ahead…and try it. You’d probably like it…though I’m not that sure considering that you’ve been eating nothing but porridge for so long now.

    1. *horrified* Woi…. how can you eat prawn and crab after surgery? U gila kah? Itchy la girl! You better ask your mum or dad give you some catfish instead!

      Not just itchy! Chinese say “tok” or “poisonous” – may cause infection. Ya…should eat what they call “lay hu” – for people who have had an operation. I think they have the essence in bottles – like chicken essence.

      1. Yea… got *du* later will nanah come out. You better dun eat seafood yet, Carol. kenot wan… find the catfish… or haruan… den cook it…t fry, grill, whatever la….that is better for wound healing. Or better still, find the essence… shud be available in leading pharmacies.

        Ah yes! It’s called ikan haruan. I only remember it is called “lay-hu” in Hokkien.

  3. Oo i should try the steamed pork with cincaluk. Duno can get cincaluk here or not.

    You probably can get the bottled made-in-Malacca ones from the Asian shops but I prefer our local made ones – nicer (more fragrant), not as salty… πŸ™‚

  4. Hahaha! STP! I just set my recording for idol live n abt to go out n thot of cooking yr tuna porridge tonite for m out till this afternoon. was just thinking of going to ask u which title that porridge was in n ‘voila’ i saw it in yr blog today! So I am going to cook that tonite! Bought all my ingredients yesterday.. Bon appetite.

    Ok…tell me how it goes. I wouldn’t say it’s something to die for but if you like meat porridge, you’d like this one – and the best part is it’s so easy to cook – no hassle at all. πŸ™‚

  5. i never had a chance to attend a pot luck party… poor me…

    So sad! But pot luck, everyone has to bring a dish! I wouldn’t mind a party where I could just go and eat. Hehehehehe!!!! πŸ˜€

  6. There will be a mini party at my boy’s school before school holiday starts and the kids are required to bring some food from home. Will come back later in the day to see if I can copy some recipes.. Hehe…

    Kid’s party? I don’t think I’ve anything suitable – finger foods kind of stuff…other than perhaps popiah or pies. 😦

  7. Well, i tried your cornbeef soup recipe….let’s just say it won’t be something I’ll cook again. πŸ˜€ Served it to my Ozzie landlords who didn’t think much of it either.

    Ah! That soup! I learnt that from some Malay friends in Kuching – those days when the corned beef from China was so nice and so cheap. Ya…nothing great, but not too bad – something different for a change. I don’t like how the corned beef tends to become tasteless after simmering – would prefer fried corned beef with potatoes and Bombay onions anytime. Melissa likes it and I think she has cooked it once already in NZ. Anyhow, I would think it’s better than French onion soup – if the one I had in Penang was anything to go by.

  8. nope, I’m still a noob when it comes to cooking. maybe 1 day i try to cook it.

    Ya…either that or find a wife who can cook and loves cooking. Otherwise, you’ll starve!!! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

    1. thanks for the “wife cook suggestion” my GF is totally useless when its come to cook. I’m the one who cook for her.

      Poor thing! Looks like you’re doomed then… Hahahahaha!!! πŸ˜€

  9. Got! Tried shepherd’s pie but didn’t follow your recipe, sendiri cincai hantam wan πŸ˜› Haha! But nice lah!

    Yan followed my recipe. I did not expect her to – I used corned beef as there wasn’t any beef in the house and I was too lazy to go to the cold storage to buy…πŸ™‚

  10. Not yet, but I will soon! The idea about using ingredients you don’t normally like (the canned food post) to cook with which might make it better. πŸ™‚

    Ah! The canned sambal prawns with fried fish! That one really turned out great. I wouldn’t mind cooking that again… πŸ™‚

  11. the last photo T.T seriously I haven’t touch that thing until this age. lol!! no pork for Vicky but im not muslim too

    Oooo…it’s really nice! But I haven’t had it for quite a while. Shouldn’t take that too often…and best with pork belly and that too, I should only eat occasionally. Must watch my diet! Hehehehehe!!! πŸ˜€

  12. WOW!! I think soon you need to start a new blog name “cook with STP” or “wok with STP”?

    Better still, “Eat with STP”! I think I prefer eating to cooking. Hehehehehe! πŸ˜€

  13. I always drool on your food pictures but never try cooking them myself. I prefer to eat than to cook la. hehe…..

    The sambal timun looks really appetizing. Maybe I should just ask my mum to read your blog, then she can cook for me?

    My mum would say: Lazy? No need to eat! Hahahahaha!!! πŸ˜€

  14. I tried the baked potatoes with cheese last year…yum!

    Can’t remember which one that was now… Not the mashed, I’m sure. Will need to search and see… So many posts, can’t remember all.

  15. Unfortunately I haven’t try cooking anything from your recipes. I prefer you cooking them and I get to eat!

    Come on over to Sibu…and it will be my pleasure to cook for you! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  16. Last night I cooked the Baked prawn with chopped garlic/cheese/butter/evaporated milk-tag under STP BAKED PRAWN FROM KPENYU…vv nice

    Yes, that one was really nice. I wouldn’t mind cooking that for a pot luck party – can show off sikit, ada standard. That one was baked – I had a more recent post whereby I cooked something like that in a frying pan, also very nice:

  17. nice nice recipes you have.. and I tried the pie but not the whole thing coz I don’t take beef… :p oh ya, now I remembered I have not done a post on that… :p

    Oh, you do not take beef? Somebody does not take pork… I take everything! Hahahahaha!!! πŸ˜€

    1. dun take cheese coz “smelly” ..haiyo …if only have sambal prawn

      Gosh! Then you’re not into a lot of western dishes lor? They often use cheese in their cooking. Pizza? No?

  18. Tried your baked potato. Popiah, used different sauce…LOL!

    Ah yes! I remember you had a post on it. Good…good…at least there are some people cooking some of the things I’ve featured. πŸ™‚

  19. Arthur, my colleagues also said the porridge taste great and request me to cook it again next week in office. yum….yum…..

    Glad to hear that it’s going down well with some people. My daughter loves it too – she has cooked that for herself a couple of times already in NZ. πŸ™‚
