I Pick Up Mandy

I had a lovely surprise call from Mandy this evening. Mandy is STP's radio fren whom I met when STP aka Cikgu Arthur and contingent came to visit IPOH last year around November, if I am not mistaken. We sort of "clicked" almost immediately, she is such a friendly lady and I am sure anyone will feel very comfortable being with her. Am I right, STP? (oh, should I start calling u sir or cikgu.... but then again, we are almost in the same league, right?)

So... I said to Mandy, "Can I pick u up after 7pm?" She laughed... normally she picks up people, she said... but this evening, she is special, she was picked up instead... that is the priority of being a guest!

After picking Mandy, we went to "pick up" Elinluv as well.... how can we leave her out... cannot...
She is a MUST HAVE person too... Together these 3 Charlie's Angels (overgrown angels, I must say), went to Ipoh Garden East food court for our dinner....

we took porridge with.....

spicy hot frogs...or toadss??

ordered some satay...

some chicken wings...
and a plate of rice with dishes...
(elin, where is that pic?)

Mandy...oh mandy...
next time we go for more yummier food, ok?

  23. Ah! You met up with Mandy! That's good! She's such a wonderful friend, will go out of her way to help and is always concerned.

    And Eugene, when she drove from KL to SP to pick my daughter and send her to my hotel in Penang, I had not met you yet...and after dinner, she left already. See how great she is! I don't think anybody would go to such great lengths for a friend.

    And Eugene, Kate Jackson lah! Ya...and names of friends also spelt wrongly...and why you only mentioned the ladies for the proposed meet-up in KL? Me, Pete...and the others all kicked out lah!!! Humph!!!

    And btw, Claire, no frogs for me please!!! Ewek!!! Hahahaha!

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...
