The mother…

…was celebrating her birthday that day, my sister-in-law, so of course, her daughter, my niece working in Singapore, came home to celebrate and yes, we were invited to the dinner here that evening.

There was, as always when it comes to birthdays and other auspicious occasions, the longevity noodles – our mee sua, but fried and served with those golden eggs…

…and yes, it was very nicely done that night – everyone enjoyed it.

For our meat dishes, we had this claypot pork with dried chilies and salted fish…

…and the simmering venison on a hot plate…

We also ordered the lamb with lime sauce…

…and I only found out that night that they had mayonnaise in it with the lime. It was nice but I think it was nicer when we had it before – the meat was not grilled that well enough.

My brother-in-law wanted his omelette…

…and we also had this own-made tofu served with mayo…

For our vegetable dish, we had this – the Green Dragon vegetable (青龙菜) or the royale chives …

…which seems to be the current craze, available only by special order and I noticed that every table was having that. I had that before here but I would not say it got me all excited. Personally, I think I would prefer our own local midin or paku or mani chai/cangkok manis.

Needless to say, we had to have a birthday cake from Marcus…

We had half of it, 7 of us altogether, and my niece took the rest back to Singapore to enjoy it slowly there. The sweet girl picked up the tab that night and the total for the food came up to RM165.00 only, around SGD50.00 only.

  1. Only SGD 50, so affordable. It does make economic sense to work in Singapore. I too prefer all the vegetables you mentioned than the chives.

    Nothing really special, dunno why the craze…plus if it is imported, I can imagine the pesticides, the chemical fertilisers…and how they preserve it en route is another story. Those that I mentioned are organic, two are plucked from the jungle, grow naturally.

    So good to work in Singapore – the salary multipled by 3 when coming home. Lots of hard work, pressure and stress though – they mean business over there.

  2. All the dishes looks great. I agree with you and prefer our local midin/paku or cangkuk manis. Old habits dies hard. My daughter loves this green dragon vegetables very much.

    Oh? Nothing really nice leh? There is a hint of the fragrance of chives, nothing much more than that.

  3. Can’t believe it is already September.. and your blog is still going strong!
    Good food, I would take that simmering venison any day! :D..

    Of course!!! You expect it to die a natural death kah? Never!!! LOL!!!

    You can have that and more…if only you will hop over here for a few days!

  4. The price is shockingly affordable. I expected it to cost more looking at the dishes and all.

    I would choose to work in Spore too if I was younger and without family commitment.

    Tell your boys to go and work there…and bring the money home. 😀

  5. I have my eye on your brother-in-law’s omelette. Happy Birthday to the birthday girl!

    You like that? He complains that the missus can’t cook it so well at home so he would insist on ordering that everytime we eat out.
