Scrumptious Hawkers’ Food

2 Sundays ago, we had some scrumptious hawkers’ food from Paramount O&S coffee shop (take-out). I’ve always wanted to eat at O&S coffee shop but with 3 young kids, the idea of sweating it out while digging into the food at a sardine-packed restaurant with dirty loos always turn the idea off me. So whenever I crave for the hawkers’ food (especially the yong tau foo and prawn paste cee cheong fun) from Paramount PJ, hubs will take-out and we all get to eat them at the comforts of our own home.


An assortment of deep fried foo pei (fish paste stuffed tofu sheets) and deep fried wantan.

An assortment of ‘yeong liu’ (fish paste stuffed brinjals, fried tofu, ladies’ fingers and fish balls)

Yong tau foo (fish paste stuffed tofu) and har koh (prawn paste) cee cheong fun. This prawn paste cee cheong fun is by far the tastiest I’ve eaten. The prawn paste is really thick and rich and flavored with bits of peanuts, really gloriously sinful!

Ngau Lam (beef brisket with radish), deep fried lin koa with sweet potato and yam…

Egg tarts and my favorite chicken pie…

Prawn noodles with added pork ribs. This bowl of ‘kar liu’ (extra ingredients) prawn mee cost a whopping RM10! Cut throat or not you say?

Pork vermicelli.

O&S coffee shop is located beside the Caltax petrol station in Taman Paramount.

Gardening The Organic Way

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Safer® brand. All opinions are 100% mine.

My mum has a small veggie patch in her garden. She plants several types of green leafy veggie, anti-cancerous herbal plants, a plant that can treat diarrhea, a spiky plant with purple flowers that can treat eczema and cysts, some beans and also a papaya tree in the garden. The papaya tree can bear very sweet and tasty papayas. Sometimes, the papayas get eaten up by birds even before we get to eat them. The leaves of the veggie and plants are also being feasted on by some caterpillars and insects. These critters are driving my mum bonkers as all her efforts in toiling under the scorching sun tending to her plants are snatched away by these pesky critters.

Just yesterday, I introduced my mum to saferbrand.com, a leader in organic insect control, organic plant disease control and organic gardening. She is going to have a fun time reading about organic gardening at saferbrand.com and she’s going to educate my dad too. My dad has just retired and the both of them now have all the time in the world to tend to their garden, organically! Have I told you that my dad uses fruit peels, veggie stems and used tea leaves as compost for their veggie patch?

Did you know that organic and natural fruits and veggie are two different things? You can read more about the interesting facts at Safer brand’s facebook page.

Oh yes, Safer brand is officially on twitter too and if you are an organic gardening buff, do join them on Twitter and Facebook. I’ve just joined them too and I think my mum will follow suit soon!
