Masterpiece on sofa

Finally, he did it! Yesterday after finished preparing dinner, I walked to the sofa seat and saw this.

I have expected this will happen someday since he starts hold a pen. I did notice he mention dirty to me from the seat before I cooked, but I just ignore him. He might be referring to the sofa having the ink mark then. I got no idea what to use to clean it while settle the dishes at the kitchen. Mild soap water couldn't be strong enough to take up the dirt. Suddenly the idea strike in, I took the stain remover for cloth and spray a little on it then rub with wet cloth. To my surprise, it works! just a few rubs all ball pen marks gone, phew~~ it save my day.
The cushion sofa seat we are having is made from micro fiber material. We have been using it for 4 years time and I love it to bits, for the comfortable material and the seat design. I don't feel hot and stuffy when sitting long on it and the cushion hold the body up right which not cause tiredness on the back after sitting long.

Of cause with Terry around, his vomit, spill water/juice, milk, urine, oil stains are all with the sofa before. So far I don't find any trouble yet in cleaning up the dirt, as normally I’ll treat them immediately if found. I'm not sure whether the material quality or it has low absorbent, I don't find the sofa seat having any odor after so long. Thats the best part of it!

With small kids and baby at home, choosing the right sofa seat is very important. Probably the best is still leather seat which easy to clean on spill liquid. But the good full leather seat cost a lot. So, micro fiber can be another ideal choice, as it also another material makes cleaning easy. I hope I don't need to change this set of sofa so soon. Last time we bought it at a super best price (less than RM2k I think) and I don't think can find it at elsewhere. The seat is 3-1-1, where the 2 single seats comes with leg rest.

Best Hokkien Mee SS2, PJ - Restaurant Ang Kee.

We got to know this from hokkien mee lover who claimed that they are the best of the best. It taste better than AhWa at Jalan 222, who also very famous on their Hokkien Mee.

Yesterday dinner time, we make our way there for Hokkien Mee and some other dishes. Before 7pm, it was already full house and tables are reserved. Luckily we can fit in for the small table. This chinese cook restaurant they are not specially serving Hokkien mee only, they also serve many other chinese dishes from average one to expansive one like shark fin, Fuat Tiew Qiong those also got. Every table, other than rice and dishes, there are sure a plate or two of Hokkien Mee.
Never taste, never know...double double thumbs up. It was sooo fragrant and tasty, heavenly good. The hot mee was served on top of a banana leave. After we finished the first plate, rice and other dishes, we make a quick ordered for another round of Hokkien Mee before we left. It was really too irresistible, definately 1 plate is not enough.

We actually not allow to order again for other food after the 2nd plate mee, coz the eaters start waiting and queuing up for dinner. Because of many people, they serve food in fast speed. The bill is RM75 for 4 persons. The dishes we orders are 2 plates Hokkien Mee (each portion for 2 persons), steam fish (medium size), vege and house taufu with rice and chinese tea.

If you go in big group, better call for reservation.

Pumpkin Oyster porridge

Since Terry starts eating solid, I like giving him "rich" porridge meaning with lots of ingredients in it. The rich porridge will have at least 3 ingredients including meats.

Happened that day I'm cooking my favourite rich porridge for the boy and Mummy Moon interested to know the ingredients and the look of the porridge. Whenever we MSN before noon time, we always ask each other what we cook for the day.

So here it is my favourite version of pumpkin oyster porridge with a total of 6 ingredients in it. There are garlic, dried scallops, oyster, pumpkin, meat and China salted vege. It is sweet and fragrant with those combination of nourishment ingredients.

Main ingredients are the pumpkin (cut in dices) and meats (dices or minced and marinated it with salt, soya sauce, pepper, corn flour and sesame oil), others all putting in a little will do. For 1 cup of rice, I used 3 pieces garlics (chop fine), 4 small dried scallops, 3 oysters (chop fine) and 1 teaspoon of China salted vege. For the oysters, if you don't like the fishy smell, can stir fried it with garlic first. Salted vege is optional.

For me in cooking the plain porridge, garlics and dried scallop is always a must to enhance the taste and I find that pumpkin is also an easy-going vege with other additional of ingredients. Another combination I have tried are pumpkin with cranberry beans (珍珠豆) and pumpkin with carrot.

Catch a good movie with fellow CG members last Sunday. Movie KNOWING starring by Nicholas Cage. This movie just come in right time for this Easter, the story line is very good and touching too.

It is all about a series of numbers wrote in 50 years ago representing great tragedy, accident and disaster. Nicholas Cage who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. He takes the knowing disaster upon himself and try to prevent more destruction from taking place. His increasingly desperate efforts take him on a heart-pounding race against time until he finds himself facing the ultimate disaster—and the ultimate sacrifice.

A worth watching movie well mixture of science and religion. Here's the movie trailer.
