Closer…

I haven’t had lor mee like the ones that I knew long ago – not too gooey or starchy, just the right amount of fermented beans and not too strong with the five-spice powder but this one comes pretty close…

TOTOCafe lor mee

I had it at the Toto Cafe, next to e-Cafe – one of the two coffee shops right behind Delta Mall at RM3.50 a bowl. But looking at what the other people were having, it appeared that the mee sua was the main attraction – almost everyone else was having that and I could see that the meat had been marinated well with the red wine. Hmmm….I think I will go back there again one of these days for that.

Well, Chinese New Year is getting closer and closer… How are your preparations coming up? My missus has been busy – buying this and that, cleaning and she has started baking the cakes and the cookies…

Bunga dahlia 1

…last Saturday. These are the traditional cookies that we will have every year – we call them kuih dahlia after the flower…

Bunga dahlia 2

I think she has made her specialty, the ngor hiang (meat rolls) too…or what is called lor bak in places like Penang and had them steamed and stored in the freezer. When the time comes, she would just have to take them out and deep fry them, cut and serve…

Come, tell me what you’ve done so far…
