Seafood Vermicelli

Sometime ago, while dining in a restaurant in Melbourne China town, my friend suggested that we order a La-la dish.  Then I found out that La-la, known in Malaysia is referred to as Pi-pi in Aussie land.  Well, be it La-la or Pi-pi, to me 'Clams' is more appropriate and better understood.
Now, back to this one-dish meal, it's easily prepared and very tasty, especially the soup ..... slurp, slurp to the last drop.  For the health conscious, round it up with a hot cup of Green tea, which may help bring down the cholesterol level after consuming such delicious crustaceans.




 tasty prawns, fish fillet, good old La-la and  some greens.
indulging once in a while, is acceptable .....




mmm ...... isn't it tempting ...... try me




a must have .....
 some freshly chopped chilli padi/birds' eye chillies
and garlic to go with it

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
