Kampua Noodles From SIBU To IPOH

Nearly fell out of my chair when I saw this comment out of the blue in my Facebook!  hahahahaa....

Arthur Wee : Looks like they went to your house TWICE!

Arthur, if you would have told me earlier that you had sent me something, I would have taken a day off to wait in the house for the postman!!  hahahahaa....  By the way, I don't think he came twice, just one time around 4.33pm...cos the card was in my letter box when I came home after 5pm...
It was indeed a nice surprise after the shock... 
I didn't expect to receive a gift from Sibu yesterday.... 
There are two packets with different flavours..
One with Dark Sauce and one Original....
Inside the big packet are five individually packed noodles that comes with their special sauce.. 
Well, what did I do with them all?
I "sent" them over to another destination...
Yes, to my mother's place so that the noodles will be perfectly cooked!
My mom is an expert when it comes to cooking noodles... 
Not too soft, not so soggy like what I would end up doing... hahahaa...
See, got desserts some more... 
Sweet potato ginger "tongsui" to accompany the noodles...
Plus home-made green chillies!
Presentation might not be as nice as those sold outside in stalls or in cafes...
But what more can I ask....
Free noodles from the Sibu Food Mayor... (THANK YOU!)
And delicate hands that prepare them with passion for the hungry hearts...
Even my daughter (quite a picky eater) gave a Thumbs UP while eating!!

    2. Kampua King sends out so many? If some do not know you, they really thought you are one of the shareholders or the CEO behind the kampua manufacturing! hahahaa... Not bad eh.. they should supply you with the packets, they are really nice, my sister, mom and even my girl have some praises for them!

    3. Glad everybody love it! Ask you all to come, so sombong! Don't want to come so no choice lor...have to send to everybody to taste.

  8. It must be a very nice surprise for you. So nice of your friend in SIbu to send them. I did not know that there are instant kampua noodles. Are they only sold in Sibu?

    Wow, your mother is such a good cook. The presentation is better than those prepared by some of the noodle stalls I frequent here. May I ask how old is your mother? She cooks so well, even go to the extent of preparing minced pork, pork meat balls and lettuce to garnish the noodle. You are so blessed. :)

    1. Unfortunately, yes. Only in Sibu. And limited stock available. Have to order ahead.

    2. Can order online, Arthur or do we have to go through you next time? You really should think about it, getting orders and making some money so that you can tour far far.... good idea, yes?

    3. Can go to their Facebook page - The Kitchen...but expensive to send lah!!! Average Poslaju charges - more than cost of each pack of the noodles. Just eat Maggi. If buying a lot, better fly over - Air Asia, may be even cheaper to do that!

    4. Thank you both for all the answers.

  9. Saw this in FB (at home) and I have to come here first thing in the morning to comment.. The noodles look delicious babe... Oohh the sauce and seasoning already included hor.. I thought just the noodles, and your mum season it herself.. Was about to ask what your mum used, coz I like cooking noodles too, and I only use oyster sauce, soya sauce and pepper, kekekeke...

    1. I also never thought got seasoning included also... we actually separated them out.. one plate with the supplied seasoning and another plate with my mom's own garlic and sesame oil... My mom normally fried the garlic and some shallots, then add in sesame oil a bit, no oyster sauce, just hak yau little bit and pak yau for taste... :) If hardworking, do some minced meat, vege and fish balls to accompany.. if more hardworking, wrap some wanton meat to go with it.. hahahaa..

  12. Yum yum! Haven't tried kampua noodles before, how did it taste different from wantan mee? *I know Arthur will surely whack me saying they're the absolutely different!* haha

    1. These kampua are now individually packet-ed while wanton noodles are not... when we cook them, we have to rinse the wanton noodles whereas kampua ones, there is no need to rinse... when it comes to texture, wanton noodles are springy while kampua is softer and smoother in texture... this is what I notice..

  15. We like the Sarawak type of mee..there are 3 places that we frequent here in KK just to have our Sarawak mein. They usually top with minced meat. This one packed with sauce are so convenient.

    1. Each place has their own special sauce and flavour, right? Yes, I didn't realize that they were individually packed until I opened them up...

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...
