Hainanese Chicken's dipping sauces

I want to introduce 2 Hainanese Chicken's dipping sauces to you today. They are Orchid Brand Soy Sauce and Singlong Hainanese Chicken Rice Chili Sauce.

I believe many people would agree with me that Hainanese Chicken is a very simple dish that you never get bored eating it. You can find many Hainanese Chicken recipes online. It is not difficult to make the chicken.

The secret recipe for the rice is here -- ChanHong Hainanese Chicken Rice Mix. I will make the rice with this mix and post it soon.

My mother was in New York a few years ago. She suggested me to get Orchid Brand Soy Sauce as a dipping sauce for the Hainanese Chicken. My mother is a very good cook. She uses Orchid Brand Soy Sauce in many of her cooking.

It takes a lot of time to make the chili sauce. I am glad I have Singlong Hainanese Chicken Rice Chili Sauce for you. So we have everything for you, all you have to do is to make the chicken and eat it!!! What are you waiting for?

Guiling Jelly (Guilinggao) and A Hong Kong Serial Drama

I learned about Guiling Grass Jelly (Guilinggao) from watching a Hong Kong TVB Serial Drama - 'The Seasons (Chinese: 季節)' when I was in Malaysia in 1987. 'The Seasons' was a 389 episode drama series about many unbelievable dramatic things happened in a family that sells herbal tea and Guiling Grass Jelly (Guilinggao) in Hong Kong. In 1987, there was nobody selling Guiling Grass Jelly (Guilinggao) in Malaysia. I was always very curious how it tasted.

Click here to learn more about Guiling Grass Jelly Powder (Guilinggao)... good for skin complexion when ingested.

The first time I ate it was when I was working in Hong Kong in 1995. I remember how I excited I was that day.

Now you can make Guiling Grass Jelly (Guilinggao) at home in less than 10 minutes with our low sugar Happy Grass Guiling Grass Jelly Powder (Guilinggao). You can add toppings such as honey, canned fruits, red beans, soya milk etc according to own preference. I don't like to add anything. I like to taste the original flavor.

Konnyaku - A delicious dieting dessert

Last September I got a Personal Trainer to help me to 'look better.':) My trainer wanted me to go on a NO oil, high fiber, low sugar and low carb diet for 6 months.

During that time, food that I was allowed to eat were very limited. I felt thankful that I could still enjoy the dessert that I love - Konnyaku Jelly. Konnyaku is a very healthy food that is rich in dietary fibers and low in calories.

'It is an ideal food for weight control since Konnyaku expands in the digestive system and gives the feeling that the stomach is full. At the same time, Konnyaku cleans toxins in the intestines.' Click here to learn more about Konnyaku...

I am very happy whenever I see people order Konnyaku Jelly. We can eat healthy and look good at the same time. Isn't it wonderful?

Btw, my 'look better' plan is a success.:)

We carry many different Konnyaku Jelly flavors. My favorites are mango and lychee. We also sell the Jelly Molds. Hope you like it as much as I do.

I can't stop eating... BBQ fish

Help me! I can't stop eating Horbill Barbecue (BBQ) Fish

I added it on AsianSupermarket365 2 weeks ago. It is selling like hot cakes!!!

It is so good that I can't stop eating it. I had it before but forgot how good it was until I ate it recently. If you never tasted it, I strongly recommend you to try it.

I don't drink. My friends told me it tastes very good with beer.
Is it true? Maybe they are just finding an excuse to drink more. lol

Penang Assam Laksa

I was born and raised in Penang. Penang has a lot of good food. I love food. You probably think that it is difficult for people who love food to know what food they love the most. For me, my No.1 favorite food is and always will be Penang Assam Laksa. I like all kinds of Penang Assam Laksa... Chinese style, Malay style... EVERY Penang Assam Laksa. I just love it.

The picture here is a bowl of Penang Assam Laksa that I made with ChanHong Penang Assam Laksa Soup Paste. I added Ayam Brand Sardines In Tomato Sauce in the soup. If I want my soup to be more sour, I add Tamarind Paste and Tamarind Skin. I see people add the Prawn Paste in the boiling soup but I like to add mine in my own bowl.

Another Penang Assam Laksa Premix Spices that I really want you to know is the Malay Style Noraini’s Penang Assam Laksa Premix Spices. The supplier's wife suggested that I add it to the site long ago. She said that it was so delicious that people who tasted it, loved it. I didn't want to add it at first because I already have 2 Penang Assam Laksa Paste. But after I tried it, I am getting addicted. I will take pictures and show you later. Instead of using the Ayam Brand Sardines in Tomato Sauce, I cooked the soup with mackerels in a filter bag and then took them out to remove the bones. Last step is to blend them (it is a must because of their numerous fine bones) and add them back to the soup. Oh, I almost forgot... you can get the Dried Laksa Noodles (Lai Fun) from us too.

Tambun Cookies (Tau Sar Peah) and Ginger Drink with Honey

I think Soon Ann Tambun Cookies (Tau Sar Peah - Green Bean Paste) and Nature's Own Ginger Drink with Honey are a very good combination. I like to have them for breakfast, afternoon coffee break or supper. In the winter, I like to have a cup of hot Ginger Drink with Honey everyday. In the summer, I like to add a lot of ice in it. It is very refreshing. To make it more fun, why not make a glass of Bubble Ginger Drink with Honey?

Among all the Tambun Cookies, why did I pick Soon Ann? I like it because it is delicious and not too sweet. I don't feel guilty after eating them.:)

1st Post - Introduction

This is not a food blog where you can learn cooking from scratch. Majority of the food that I make are from 'Easy to Cook', 'Ready to Serve', 'All In One' ingredients. However, I can guarantee you that they are all very delicious. I do let people know that I don't know how to cook and I depend on all these 'Easy to Cook' 'All In One' ingredients. After they know that, many people STILL think that I am a good cook. I do want to give myself some credits though... I am very good at selecting the right products.:)

I started this blog simply because I want to save the pictures of the food that I cook. I also want to share with people who buy from AsianSupermarket365
what I like and maybe one day they can share the food that they cook using the ingredients they get from AsianSupermarket365 here.

The first thing I want to share with you is the String Beans with Shrimps that I made with Oasis Sambal With Shrimps last week. Sambal With Shrimps Stir Fry Sauce is used in frying Kang Kong (water spinach), string beans, okra, egg plants etc. You can add squids, shrimps, chicken to the dish.
