【牛油果鸡蛋三文治】Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich


We love egg salad sandwich as breakfast or snacks. As much as I love the taste of mayonnaise in the salad. I have been thinking of making a healthier version using Avocado, part of my eating right and losing weight plan.(Well, that deserves a whole new post I figure).

So I finally made this sandwich as we always keep some avocado at home for baby A. The creamy texture of mashed avocado is just perfect for this sandwich! I must say I really liked it! Yumm!

Kari Kapitan (Captain's Curry) 甲必丹咖喱

When I was young I often think that Kapitan is a mysterious Malay word that means someone in power or royal sort of character. Not until much later that I figured Kapitan is nothing but "Captain" in English. 

That makes the name of this dish all the more interesting, here is the version of the origin of the name of this dish I heard from my pals in Melaka:

It was said that in 18-20 centuries, the British colonized the then Malaya. 

Many of the British officers (a.k.a Captains) were based in Melaka for its world famous seaport. These officers often keep the local Chinese or Baba Nyonya as domestic helpers, most often time, Nyonya as a cook for they are known for their culinary skills.
