Stir Fry Watercress With Belacan And FoodPanda Voucher Giveaways

After having been out of action in the kitchen for the past 3 months, I look forward to hijack my kitchen back from WB.  He is really lousy when it comes to cleaning up after each cooking.   Ok, he can cook alright but when it comes to cleaning up , I would rate him as 3/10.  I still have to supervise him till every bit of grease or dirty plates are cleaned up :p  Anyway , I have to thank him for taking care of me the last 3 months.  This is what I cooked for dinner after hijacking back my kitchen. Stir Fry Watercress With Belacan.   Love this dish , but the preparation takes a bit of time though and the whole house smell of belacan....LOL!   

After having rested for 3 months, I tired out easily after an hour in the kitchen :p . Guess age is catching up. I was chatting with a friend the other day and was complaining to her about my recent tiredness and she straight away told me to have food delivered to the house whenever I feel tired to cook or too lazy to eat out.  Isn't it a great idea to order food online from one of our favorite restaurants and get the food delivered to our home !  I am sure WB will be happy to hear this.

  1. Can I participate? I'll be home soon. It will be good if I can order in when I am lazy to cook ;)

    1. Yes...definitely! ;) you can order extra for me too so that I can join you for dinner ;p

  2. I have never tried Foodpanda delivery before but I like how Foodpanda makes ordering so easy and convenient!

  3. You are so lucky to have WB who can cook minus the cleaning up. Mine cant even cook an egg decently and not willing to learn....results of years of pampering by his mother. Tied to her apron string even until today. Luckily my son is able to cook well, with my coaching.

  4. This will be something like kangkong belacan. Ah well...anything will taste great with belacan. :)

  5. My fav vege but normally just stir fry w lots of garlic or make soup w it. Would love those food panda vouchers.

  6. Oh, I so wanna try this. Watercress is one of my favourites ! :D

  7. I want to have the watercrest vege . Yum.

    Too bad FoodPanda doesnt deliver to my area :( . Ahem ahem ...hopefully they will increase the delivery area to my place la

  8. I saw fresh watercress many times in supermarket,but totally got no idea how to enjoy it, thanks for the recipe...
