A Brief Getaway To Taiping

I went for a brief getaway yesterday.... where? Taiping... it is around 70km from Ipoh and we reached the town in 50minutes. What purpose? hehehe.. apa lagi, pergi jalan-jalan cari makan (what else but to go for a eating spree again!) I forgot to take pictures of our lunch meal....silly me, I thought I have taken it but when I checked with my camera just now, they were not there.... sigh..

We stopped by at this Taiping coffeeshop after our dinner (letswallop post)and this man recommended us to take his yam cake. Proudly he said that his yam cake was authentic styled, learnt from his grandmother/ancestors... something like that, my hokkien is no good, so I agak-agak he must be talking about that la... After his short "speech", I "obliged" by ordering a small plate... (still full after dinner)

when it came, i was like...gosh! looked so yummy one...

it tasted better than it looked! hmmmm.....

then we ordered some taiping rojak..
so much grounded nuts, man...

some sotong, fruits & homemade fried yau chow kwai...
it sure tasted very yummylicious ...
Next time must go eat again!!!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
