Steamed Red Snapper With Ginger Garlic Rice Vinegar Sauce

Bought a piece of red snapper fillet from Jusco a few days ago.  Ran out of idea how to cook this piece of fish steak :p, then suddenly I remembered the new cookbook - Madam Choong's Nostalgic Recipes that I bought a month ago , has this very appetizing looking steamed fish recipe with lots and lots of ginger and garlic and chillies.  I flipped to the page and jotted down the ingredients and I had this a amazingly delicious steamed fish set on the dining table.  The steamed fish smells good ! A keeper for sure. It is so freaking healthy that I want to have this everyday if possible...that is how crazily in love I am with this dish.  The fish is fresh and the fragrant from the mixture of chopped ginger and garlic and hot chillies really whets my appetite. Lip-smacking good !

this piece of  red snapper costs RM11.00

awesome toppings !

Champagne For Celebration!

When our son came back the last trip announcing of his forthcoming marriage, we were overjoyed and WB insisted that we all go out for dinner to celebrate the good news..  And to commemorate the occasion, we decided to have a bottle of champagne to grace the occasion.  WB picked his favorite Champagne MAGNUMs which is imported direct from NZ - a premium Champagne ! Our sonnie loves the richness and flavor of this sparkling champagne too. Like father like son, they both shared the same taste when it comes to champagne and wine.  For me , I love red wine, and WB ordered red wine for us when we had the main course :) 

The champagne  goes well with the appetizer . It sets the mood for the evening.  When the main course arrived, red wine was served .  Needless to say, I truly enjoyed my meal ...the champagne and red wine flushed my face and I had rosy cheek the whole night.  But it was happiness and wine that makes me blushes the whole night through.  Which parents will not be pleased and happy when their sons and daughter announces their wedding to them?  Needless to say we are the happiest parents on earth that night!

Pork Chop Chinese Style

This is WB's favorite dish......Pork Chop Chinese Style. He has been pestering me to cook this dish for some time but because I don't fancy this dish much, I ignored his request and gave stupid excuses not to cook this dish for him ...:p so selfish of me.  But yesterday, I cooked this dish for him for lunch and he was super happy with it...hahaha actually I was tired and lazy to cook anything, not just this particular dish. I am still in retirement bliss :p . He loves lots and lots of onion rings in his pork chop and I added in chillies for him :)
