This must be one of the easiest dish  to cook and yet I have not been cooking it for a very long time.  This time I used fresh prawns instead of dried prawns.  A very light and tasty dish. 

The main ingredients: 1 cucumber (deseeded and cut into slices); fresh prawns (lightly season with salt and pepper) some chili flakes, minced garlic.


1. Heat oil in wok and add minced garlic.  Saute till fragrant
2. Add the prawns and cook till it turns pink.  Dish up and set aside
3. Add the cucumber to the wok and add a bit of water and  keep stirring. (unless you prefer cucumber soft, add more water and cover and let is simmer till soft). I prefer the cucumber a bit crunchy.
4.  Return the prawns to wok and adjust seasoning.
5.  dish up and sprinkle chili flakes on top.
Another economical dish is Steamed Taufoo with salted egg  and century egg.
Ingredients: fresh  soft taufoo from the market, 1 salted egg  (cooked and mashed), 1 century egg (diced), 1 small tomato (skinned, deseeded and diced).
Mix the topping together and pour onto of taufoo.  Steamed over high heat for just 3-5 minutes.  I need not even add any seasoning as the flavouring comes from the salted egg white and diced tomato.
Lastly the Ikan Bilis soup with spinach and some fish paste.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day.
