Mee Series - Calories of Lor Mee

Lor Mee, originally uploaded by ChocolateFillings.
This is my favourite food!! But I have not have this in ages. :(

1 bowl of Lor Mee, 540g = 383kcal.

I was really shocked that Lor Mee only cost me 383kcal. But afterwards I realised the 383kcal is a bowl of Lor Mee with only "Yellow noodles with beansprouts, egg and pork in thick dark gravy" according to HPB. So that is to say that they exclude the tasty fried stuff that are usually found in good Lor Mee. No wonderrrrrrrrrr :(

Calories of Plain Rice Dumplings 碱水粽 (jianshui zong, Kee Zhang)

1 Plain Rice Dumplings 碱水粽 (jianshui zong), 96g = 164kcal

This one is usually eaten with sugar. The rice is treated with edible alkaline, hence its yellowish color. My Ah Gong was the only one who eats this. Now that he is gone, no one else eat this in my family anymore. :( But I can still remember the taste of this very special dumpling, and the sight of my Ah Gong eating it.

179/365 吃太多了!!, originally uploaded by kisekino01.

I ate a lot in Taiwan.. I did exercise self-control.. But what I ate was more than my usual diet.. So I gained weight! :(

After I return.. I went to a strict diet.. and slept for long hours..

Alas, I lost the 2 kg I gained in taiwan already.. But I am very hungry now.. Can't wait for MCD with the kids later.. oops.

Calories of Meat Rice Dumpling, Bak Zhang 肉粽

Bak Zhang, originally uploaded by iFlicks.
1 Meat Rice Dumpling (Bak Zhang), 132g = 276kcal
("Glutinous rice filled with fatty meat, chestnut and chopped mushroom, wrapped by leaves, steamed")

132g is kind of small. I think the typical rice dumpling we see is definitely bigger than 132g.. and would also cost more calories :(

Calories of Nonya Dumpling 娘惹粽

1 Nonya Dumpling, 165g = 315kcal.

Nonya dumplings are the one that has a sweet filling because of the added winter melon candy. The meat is also minced, unlike the Hokkien or Cantonese dumplings.
