Our Generation "Food" Gap...

Apart from Dim Sum in my previous posts, my girl was also yearning for Japanese food.... hmmm... I wonder why the younger generation loves Japanese food so much....

Well, I could only think of one logical reason why I don't really prefer Japanese food... Perhaps it could be due to the fact that I grew up in the 1960s...or 1970s. era...... and during that time, Japanese or Korean food were unheard of.... and I grew up eating chinese and chinese food only!   :)

Back to my topic, to fulfill her food wish, we went to Sushi Zento as per request and I know that she would love to take this Salmon Sashimi... (is this what it is called?  correct me if I am wrong)
Besides this, she just picked and chose others from the moving welt....
I don't mind taking a piece or two ... 
but I don't actually yearn for it as much as she does...
While she enjoyed her Japanese meal....
 ..... my mind was wandering somewhere else???
I guess I was Yearning for these instead....  hahahaa...
One Ton Noodles ah!!!
(Wantan meen)
The best in Ipoh is opposite the old Odeon cinema... (my opinion la)
The wantan noodles are mixed with "lard!"  Best!
See.... my nephew enjoying his bowl of curry mee.... yummmsss!
Give me a plate of Chee Cheong Fun anytime...
And I will enjoy it to the fullest!!

  2. The noodles looks plain with only 1 or 2 miserable leaves of vegetables, no meat & prawn but the Chee Cheong Fun looks yummy. Stomach groaning.

  11. I wonder why restaurants add so many flavours to a pure product like salmon. It can be good however.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
