Adenium and Seeds hunting in Sg Buloh.




 


Cham...Mamarazzi "癫"..(is that the correct writing?) Means suddenly gone mad about flowers. Ngum ngum my Kaw kaw also wanted to hunt for some seeds. 

So Mamarazzi bodek Papa to go Sg Buloh lor. It's famous for its nursery . 

 
 First stop...Lot 26. Read in a blog that they have very good pricing for flowers especially adenium . Saw these seedlings and some bigger pots. A foreign worker served us. It must have been mis-communication as when Papa asked how much is small pot of Adenium, he quoted Papa RM100. Since the Boss was not around , we went to Lot 36 to buy some flower pots la.

Mamarazzi asked the Lady Boss there and the Lady Boss said for Adenium best is Lot number 28 and Lot number 61.
 
 Wah lau eh...Lot number 28 really big wor. Specialise in Adenium. There are all sorts of adenium. Multi petals ones , multi color ones and etc also have.

Since Mamarazzi is a novice, she aked the lady boss for the cheapest ones. The lady boss sold her a small pot for RM16. Red color flowers.




Next was hunting for herbs and seeds. Heard people said Lot 48 has a lot of seeds and herbs but we couldn't find lot number 28. Saw got Lot number 48 la but it was a furniture shop.

Saw many cars stopped at Lot number 49, we also went and "kaypoh" la.

Wah like gone to Cameron Highland la. Loads of plants . 

Hey! they even have Stevia! RM12 a pot. Mamarazzi saw the Mini Rose. Blooming so so so nice....only RM12.90. I wonder if when near Valentine Day the price would be the same or not leh? If yes, wouldn't it be better to buy this potted mini Roses to give for my girlfriends. Cheaper leh and can last longer leh.

Last stop was Lot number 61 . Kaw Kaw didn't find the seeds that she was looking for. 

Next stop....makan time....guess where?

The one with orange dots are orange flavour while those with black marks are vanilla favour. Sorry about the ugly presentation coz she went and put chocolate chips on the Vanilla steamed muffins . they melted , of course.

Mamarazzi's Bihun Steamed Fish

Long time have not had fish. Dunno what "wind" came and Mamarazzi felt like having steamed fish but don't feel like having it in restaurant.  Went Jaya Grocer to get a fish.

Mamarazzi's steamed fish very easy. Just slices some tomatoes..*please ignore the carrots*..some mushroom slices...same preserved vegetable and a bit of Tanghoon or Bihun(up to you) .

Put everything on the plate. Add some Goji and sprinkle a bit of salt. Put into the steamer or wok and steam till the fish is fully cooked.


How do you know the fish is fully cooked? For Mamarazzi, she look at its "hand" (pectoral fin) had raise up signalling "I surrenderrrr".

There....just like this!

Mmm....I love the taste of the bihun that Mamarazzi put in with the fish. It had soaked up all the sweetness of the fish.

No photo! No photo!...makan first.....

Kerabu Mango with NuStevia


Is mango season over? Seems just like in a blink of eyes only. I can't get enough of mango. One of my favourite fruits.

These are the harvest from the playground in front of our house.  Too raw to eat on its own but would be great to make into kerabu.

That's what Mamamazzi did.

 
Just shred a mango. Slice some onions. add some mint leaves from our garden. For the extra saltiness, just fry some dried shrimps or anchovies and add into the mix.

For some great taste...just squeeze some lime juice and add NuStevia No Carbs Blend Premium Natural Sweetener from NuNatural.

 This way, Papa can enjoy it with us. Hmm.....Mamarazzi wonder whether we can get some Stevia plant here in Malaysia or not. Seems like something good for the garden


What happened to the extra mangoes? She made into pickled mangoes. Just slice and put into jar. Add sugar, vinegar, asamboi and kum choh. Maybe she should have tried to pickle them using Stevia Syrup instead of using sugar. Oh well...there is always next round.

Oh ya...I received nice surprise from  Uncle SK. Thank you very much for the lovely card . You are so creative la.

Candied Pomelo Skin Recipe

 Mamarazzi was chatting with Uncle Twilight Man but don't know how the topic comes to Pomelo. He mentioned that when he was small, he had tasted very nice pomelo skin pickled. Taste a bit like Marmalade .

It's first time that Mamarazzi heard of Pomelo Skin pickled. A search through google yields surprising result. There are so many thing can be done with Pomelo skin. There are Pomelo Skin braised meat, Pomelo skin salad , Pomelo skin candy and many more but she can't find anything about pomelo skin pickled.

 She noticed that the Pomelo Skin Candy looks interesting. Well, we still have one Pomelo leftover from our Ipoh trip...yup...Fresh Pomelo can be kept up to a month.

To have sweet pomelo, it's best to wait for the skin to feel soft before eating. Those fresh pomelo will not be as sweet.



 "Operated" on the pomelo.

 Cut the skin into strips. Cut away the "white" thingy as according to the recipe, that is the thing that makes the skin taste bitter.


 Blanched the pomelo skins 3-4 times in hot water.

 Last ....pour a cup of water plus a cup of sugar and boil the skin till translucent. 

 Mamarazzi rolled half of the skins in caster sugar while the other half she dipped in honey as Uncle Twilight mentioned that the ones he tasted have honey taste and it's wet.

 Jemur it under the sun. Too very long to dry properly leh.

 When I came home, it's still not properly dried. Those with sugar have harden but those with honey still sticky.
I tasted a slice......Mamarazzi asked me how? My reply was very diplomatic..."nice". But when she asked me to have some more I said "enough".

Mamarazzi tasted them...she likes the ones with sugar more than those with Honey. Honey with honey still tasted quite bitter. End up, she took them into the house and rolled everything in sugar.

Hmm.....learn new thing that day. Thanks uncle Twilight for the tips.
