Souvenirs And Marketing In Victoria Market

So much to buy but we didn't actually bought a lot as yet.  We always ended up buying souvenirs that we don't use and giving out to our family and friends.  But old habits die hard... ladies are ladies.. we still want to grab stuff we find fascinating and cheap, right?  Shopping is endless for us... more pictures here...
Ok, what shall we buy?
Doing some bargaining... hahaha...
But most stalls have fixed prices...
Most of the stalls have the same style and designs..
Should I get these towels.... er... I guess no need ler... right?
Someone was caught in a bored mood!  Oh my!!  I didn't know that till I saw these pictures... 
He is such a "NICE BOY!"  LOL....
The shopping continues....
My girl ended up with a pink cap only $3... 
And finally in the vegetable and fruits section.... 
Need to buy back some for our lunch.... 
Our first apartment cooked meal 
Here is our menu for the day....
Love these fresh scalloops... $10 here...
So sweet.. just stir fry them and we get their sweet juice... 
Slowly does it.....
We ended up cooking spaghetti with ham and bacon... fresh scallops and lightly pan fried salmon!
Got to do this again before we leave.....

    1. Ya...going overseas, if you buy food and cook your own, it is a lot cheaper than eating outside...and nicer too. I think their salaries too high...so the cost is charged to the customers in the prices of the food.

    2. Yeah, you had a point there... normal meal is around $10 so might as well cook some nice meals with that kind of money... but most meals taken out too.. wanna try the western food..

  9. Was about to ask yesterday did you buy some food from the market to cook in your apartment, and today, saw your post liao cooking in the apartment, yay! Oh yes, agree with you "lui yan chin yung yi chan" (ladies money easy to get).. Haha.. Almost anything also we can buy.. Drop me anywhere, I can buy anything although I don't plan to buy anything.. Your home-cooked lunch looks good, I like. But I prefer white sauce to bolognaise.. The next time maybe can get your kids to do carbonarra cream sauce.. Can't wait!

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...
