I call them Toasted Bread cups.. a childhood favourite with my kids.  This was the way to use up those leftover bread and create something tasty for them.  

Besides the bread, I use some frozen mixed veggies, diced onions and diced chicken fillets (these are the most tender parts of the chicken).  I am sorry that I don't have exact measurements ... just estimate enough for 6 pieces

Melt butter in wok

add diced onions and saute till fragrant and transparent.  Add the diced chicken (by the way if you can also pre-blanch the chicken). 

Add plain flour and stir to mix and cook flour slightly 

Add about 1 cup of fresh milk and stir till combine.

Add seasoning, salt, black pepper and some mixed herbs and its done.. we don't want to overcook the chicken otherwise it will be too tough.

While I was cooking the fillings, Sarah had prepared the bread cup... trim off the crust and lightly roll the bread to flatten. Make cuts at the corners and fit them into the muffin tin (greased if not using non-stick one).
Spoon the filling into each cup and top with grated cheese. 

Bake at pre-heated oven 180C for around 15-20 minutes till cheese melted and edges are lightly brown. 
Here's our Sunday dinner served with a cucumber/tomato salad and of course a bottle of chilled hoegaarden rosee ..yum seng!

Talking about childhood memories, time flies for our little princess....

For three consecutive long weekends, my sister has been staying overnight at my house, assisting me in making the mooncakes. Finally after completing the orders, tonight we went for a good dinner @ Bukit Jalil..

"The traditional cuisine of Japan (和食 washoku) is based on rice with miso soup and other dishes; there is an emphasis on seasonal ingredients. Side dishes often consist of fish, pickled vegetables, and vegetables cooked in broth. .....The phrase ichijū-sansai (一汁三菜, "one soup, three sides") refers to the makeup of a typical meal served, but has roots in classic kaisekihonzen, and yūsoku cuisine. "
from Wikipedia
We were informed by the owner that their concept is just like above... homely-style Japanese meals cooked with seasonal ingredients daily and they don't cook large amount so the sets are limited for the day.

Pasar Seni MRT Station.
Taking a day off from the moon-cakes baking, I took my sister for her first MRT ride. 

Chinatown @ Petaling Street. .

The shop on the right is where my late father have his roasted pork stall.  Right at the back of then coffee-shop, we had own "rotisserie" where we roasted whole pigs, char-siew and sausages.  

This is one of the "old-timers"  surviving in Chinatown  

The list of TCM practitioners and acupuncturists 

Taking time to pray for blessings of peace and health at the Kuan Ti  Temple aka Kwong Siew Free School.  When they (she and my elder brothers)  were small, they used to borrow Chinese story books from here too.  Not so sure whether they still have the free school or not. 

Opposite is the Sri Mahamariammah Indian temple The temple was founded in 1873 and is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur.

and we have arrived at the bright yellow facade of the Petaling Street  Heritage House.... a center to preserve the Chinese musical heritage...  

This is a 2 storey shophouses

we went through the doors and into the cafe on the ground floor. Still too early for diners yet..   

We climbed up the stairs to the "museum" - a collection of old vinyl records from Yan Kee Record Shop, a very popular shop those days, news cuttings, and display of the some theatrical props used. 

You can read about the place from the internet.

Lucky "girl" was interview by NTV7.

Enjoying Uncle Bean Soya Bean to cool down.  

traditional mooncake?

freshly fried Yam Mooncake ... not cheap leh RM20.90 each. 

Happy with her purchases.... she bought it to give us... so generous of her..

resting along the corridors of the shophouses.   Many of the old shophouses have been refurnished into hipster cafes.
