Petai Dish

I love Petai or ‘chau tau’ in cantonese or it literally means smelly beans in English if translated from cantonese. I love Petai stir-fried with sambal belacan (prawn paste and chillies) but since my 2 gals also eat them, I normally stir-fry the Petai with diced chicken meat, soya sauce, garlic and shallots. Petai is like the Durian, they smell horrible before you cook them and you will have a bad after-taste in your mouth after you’ve eaten them but when you eat them, they taste really delicious. Petai is also known to have medicinal values, especially in treating high blood pressure, diabetes and other ailments.

A Saucy Fish Story

Sherilyn is finally weaned off from blended food, for over 1 month, hooray! However, she still doesn’t like to eat chicken meat or any other meat except fish balls, fish paste and steamed fish BUT she has to eat her steamed fish with this special sauce made up of organic soya sauce, olive oil, garlic, shredded ginger and fresh spring onions all stir-fried together. She loves the sauce very much and insists that the bowl of sauce be placed next to her during dinner time everyday. I tried cooking sweet and sour fish or pan-fried fish but nope, she wouldn’t eat the fish and spat them all out. Since she doesn’t eat any other meat, I try to steam fish for her everyday with the special sauce of course.


The special fish sauce that Sherilyn is crazy over.


And this is how Sherilyn eats her dinner everyday. I’ve asked my maid to dilute the sauce with some soup when she cooks it so that it will not be that salty.

Beard Papa’s Cream Puff


That’s my favorite food, Beard Papa’s Natural Cream Puff which DH bought from Mid Valley Megamall yesterday. He bought a box of 5 cream puffs. I gave one to my maid and the gals and I gobbled down 3 yesterday and 1 today. It’s best eaten fresh on the day you purchase it, else the pastry will turn squidgy the following day. If you haven’t tasted it yet, you really got to buy 1 to try, really delicious! There are 3 flavors – original, green tea and chocolate and i like the original one best.
