Recipes from Nancy and Twister

1) Earlier dont know how to cook this kind of mushroom ( gift from a friend during CNY), after saw Nancy's post http://nancymummy.blogspot.com/2009/02/blog-post_25.html, immediately I tried her recipe, the taste was great.













2) I even tried Twister 's lemon chicken http://twister733.blogspot.com/2008/12/twister_08.html, the taste was great too. Best to accompany with a bowl of white rice.

Tulip, Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands, Part 1

Since recently so many blogger post on the flowers, this time, I also want to share some of the flowers photos.

I visited this tulip garden (actual name is Keukenhof Gardens) in Holland (The Netherlands) 3 years ago, I took the opportunity to visit this garden when I transited (9 hours ) at Amsterdam airport for a business trip to Brazil in somewhere mid of Apr. I just took a local tour guide at the airport, the distance from Amsterdam airport to this garden was less than 30mins.

I'm so lucky to have this opportunity to visit this world's largest flower garden, spread over 32-hectares and attracting over 800,000 visitors each year. This number is very impressive since the gardens are only open for a few weeks (full tulip blossom in month of Apr-May) each year.


1) These photos took when we are on our way to the garden. A nice sunny day with weather 13-14c.


























































2) We get a small girl and a dog be our models











































3) Crowd at the entrance to the Keukenhof Garden




















p/s In next post, I will publish all the nice Tulip photos, stay tuned.

Nasi Lemak again !!!

This time I just cook "sambal ikan bilis" . I like this simple sambal, it must be added with a lot of onion and crispy ikan bilis, also must add quite big amount of sugar to get sweet taste.

Steamboat

After saw 温馨小屋 post on charcoal steamboat http://felvinc.blogspot.com/2009/02/blog-post_06.html, I just realized that I have been so long never try this steamboat shop at Berkerly Klang, they also use charcoal to serve steamboat. Immediate the next day, we go there for dinner.

This shop is there for a long time, at least 25years old. They still maintain the quality till now, food serve there are fresh and their side dish e.g kam heong crab, fried glass noodle & etc are nice too.

1 ) Charcoal steamboat














































2) Why the soup there is nice, because they add fried lard "cu yau za" in the soup.
















3) The shop name is Restoran Makanan Boon Wah















p/s if today you don't have any idea where to take dinner for Valentine celebration, maybe this is a good place for you, cheap and nice.
