Third lunch re-visit@Ping Wah Restaurant, Taman Paramount PJ

image

One of my girlfriends had been craving for PW’s stuffed pork yaocharkuey and we decided to fulfill her cravings today.

PW is run by Mr Joe Hoo (his photo is in this picture) and he was always there when we came. What a passionate owner! He even personally came to take our orders.

PW is founded upon the love and inspiration of Mr Joe’s father’s home cooked Hainanese food. I remembered his dad even offered us his home made sambal belacan on our last visit here (which was fiery awesome btw)

We were creatures of habit, ended up ordering the same dishes we had previously. This herbal-like chicken dish with preserved vegetables was awesome. Kampung chicken was used hence, you don’t see all those fatty bits you normally get from those farm-bred fattened chicken. If I was really hungry and gluttony, I honestly think I can possibly finish the entire dish on my own. Yikes!

image

This is a widely known PW dish, sliced potatoes cooked with pork. Many foodie blogs reviewed on this and you can never go wrong when with a dish that constantly gets the popular tag in the many reviews on PW. I guess the combination of the savoury starchy goodness with the meaty bits was a perfect fit. This dish reminded me a lot of mom’s ‘orh nee’ (thinly sliced steamed yam rolls).

image

Simple stir fried vegetables with a hint of chopped garlic bits can never go wrong. Nothing fancyful about its flavour, just a fibre intake and palate cleansing dish for me.

Finally, my girlfriend’s long awaited craving was fulfilled when we were served with this. The sauce base was sweet and sour. These yowcharkueys were stuffed with minced pork and re-fried to perfect crunchiness and drizzled over with the spicy sweet and sour sauce. Chopped pineapples were added to push tro the ‘Zing’ factor. Yummylicious!

Total damage per pax was about RM15 with drinks.

This place is definitely a lunch-keeper! We shall visit here soon!

Blessed Christmas fellowship lunch@The Lord’s Covenant Church, Phileo Damansara

Today indeed is a blessed day! The birth of Jesus Christ is the sole purpose of why we are commemorating this day.

Today we are reminded that Christ-mas’s literal meaning is ‘worship Christ’. And the message we received from God today is to act upon our faith and belief in Jesus Christ…to open our hearts and accept Him so we can spiritually live in AD.

Believe Him as He is, and know Him through The Word who became flesh, The Word was with God and The Word was God.

Although He came 2000 years ago, we can still see Him today through The Word, which is the bible.

What an amazing blessing of receiving this spiritual food!

And now..time for physical food! Yummylicious roast pork from The Meat Experts, Hartamas Shopping Centre. The slices were chunky, tender, juicy, savoury. AWH WHEE yums! Bought by Eldress Madeleine and family.

We had a fair yummy share of roast duck bought from Grace and family too! Equally yummy!

image

This was also my first time eating a northern indian curry puff and boy oh boy…yums too! The dough layer was thin but inside it contained all the deliciousness: mashed potato, eggs etc. The thin layer of the puff would prevent any “jelak-ness” from eating it. In fact, it was not oily too…one of the healthier curry puffs I had ever eaten. Bought by Kelvin!

image

Home made sandwiches from our starchef Nancy! A healthier option to wash down all the guilt from the pork and duck!

image

Lily and family brought the fruit tart cake, which resembled the turkish delights! This year proved to be a double portion blessing to her as she was able to attend the service with her entire family and her children performed for the first time at church!

image

Yours truly..myself brought Krispy Kreme’s donuts for the kids. Although they were massacred into pieces…what would this day be without sickly sweet pastries? Haha.

image

We had a basketful of Christmas cookie and candy goodies too…especially those mint candlesticks really lifted up the happy spirits of the kids! A rewarding treat for them after their performance.

image

Sarah’s mom cooked Mee Sua for the church ala Klangite style. I definitely felt her mom’s love in the dish. The soup was sweet, nutritious and it was boiled with tender chicken chunks and clams.

TLCC kids having a good time bonding together. I believe Father is pleased to see His spiritual children bonding hand in hand in remembrance of the day our Saviour is born!

HALLELUJAH!
