Simple but nutritious dinner
Alone and lazy to drive out for dinner? Here is a simple and nutritious meal. The toon sprout sauce (香椿拌酱)is a Taiwanese product bought from the organic shop and is strongly recomended as it is really tasty. It can also go with noodles and vegetables.

Bacardi Breezer + Frozen Blueberries

Heaven on Earth - Part 2. Perfect dessert to put an end to a hectic day, minus the unhealthy fats found in cakes and chips. A bowlful of berries only contain less than 80 calories and a 1/4 cup of bacardi breezer will only add about 30-40 calories to it, making it a 120 calorie dessert that will actually fill you up.

Malaysia Airlines System - MAS
Inflight vegetarian meal - IndianThis Indian vegetarian meal on board has a small plate of dhall beans. I find the beans are not well cooked and are still quite hard to the bite. Then there is a chinese pau to go with margarine.The main dish consists of vegetarian curry chicken, some vegetables and rice. Finally Chinese tea was offered to help wash down the food. I find the main dish was tasty.

Vegetarian BBQ!!!
It was like an urge, a need, perhaps, to promote vegetarianism to our friends, before we finally decided to hold a vegetarian bbq at our place. After a series of cautious planning, we finally came up with a long list of food to present to our "carnivorous" friends, and hope that they would like it.

Our shopping list:
Fresh:
Capsicums, pumpkins, brown onions, eggplant, sweet potatoes, pot mushrooms

Supermarket:
Hash browns, wedges, pita bread, pasta, pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, canned mixed beans, preserved olives (sliced), butter, salt, garlic bread, drinks

Asian Grocery:
Rice Flour, Soy Sauce, preserved radish (diced), fried tofu blocks, curry paste


Assorted vege (Zucchini, eggplant, pumpkin, mushrooms, tofu cubes)


Mixed beans

Pasta (Chinese Style)

Pizza - made by a true Italian! Absolutely dreamy!!!!! pizza is made to perfection!

Hot Cross Buns!

Hash Browns

Rice Cakes - Char Tau Kueh (Malaysian street food!)
