Carol & KarLock Kitchen - Iban Meets Chinese Cuisine

Kar Lock L. from Malaysia

About the kitchen

Two of us will be hosting. Me and Carol.
I'm an engineer, and my wife is a cardiac nurse.
I'm a Chinese from Ipoh - where it's famous for it's Cantonese meals.
My wife is a mix Chinese Iban Native - that's a unique blend of culture and background.

You can expect to get a nice delicious cantonese soup to start off your stomach - a must have for any Cantonese family.
Main course will be a Herbal Village Chicken or Tumeric Chicken and a nice Chinese style steamed fish - cooked with a surprise twist, served with white rice or nasi lemak (Malaysian favourite) :)
If you would like something exciting, we have our own Curry Chicken (with our own homemade curry paste) - Chinese style.
We also make our own Nasi Lemak with our own family recipe - a meal where you will keep asking more sambal.
We will then serve you with a nice dessert (or we call it tongsui over here) - where you can go back with a sweet memory ever!

Note: Carol loves pumpkin - so we will prepare our very own refreshing pumpkin barley drink - a drink that only be found in certain places in Malaysia!

  1. Bio

    I'm a Cantonese from Ipoh, married with a wonderful wife, Caroline, a mix Chinese Iban native. Yes, Caroline is also a Mandarin speaking Iban Native.
    I work as an engineer, and Caroline is a cardiac nurse.
    We love to explore ways to cook authentic Chinese food, yet at the same time be health cautious and delicious! We love to cook all the time at home with fresh local ingredients, because we believe home cooking is the best still.

    I love sports, especially basketball, futsal, chess, and some simple magic tricks too - just for fun.
    And my wife just simply loves swimming and aerobic exercise. Oh, how she loves water!

    PS: Occasionally she does kick boxing too. I still can't believe it until now. And I have successfully persuaded her to join me in futsal too! Ahhh, we just loves sports.

    We loves to host friends in our home, and we are looking forward to meet new friends from different culture.
    If you want to know more about Native culture, you must drop by our place here! :)
