Farewell Lunch At Mandarin Kitchen Restaurant In Farlim, Ipoh

Another farewell lunch for one of my colleagues who has actually retired in March but due to unforeseen circumstances, the treat is postponed until this afternoon! Bless her, she did not mind the least, as long as we are together again to have a good chat and meal, it is all that counts.

One of my colleagues suggested Mandarin Kitchen Restaurant in Farlim.  I was all for it because I have never been there before.  In less than thirty minutes from our office, we arrived at the restaurant and had a good time tasting the glorious food here.... (besides the non-stop conversations!)

So... what did my friend order..... hmmmmm...... good choices ahead...
Salted egg with bitter gourd... plus crispy cuttlefish as toppings...
Sweetened Honey Meat!
Greens with some dash of yam and toppings as shown....
I ate a lot of these.... greens, I mean.. :)
Another type of greens.... brinjals, smelly beans, long beans and "kangkung"
Moist and crispy beancurd!
Steamed and salted chicken....
Curry Fish Head!
And for the 10 of us, these dishes were just enough...
Who says ladies are small eaters!?
The evergreen appetites!
Happy Retirement to you, Nan!

  9. I think the first dish is tasty enough without the crispy cuttlefish. Ten ladies only - that's why I see the dishes are not polished clean. Well Happy Retirement to your ex-colleague. Next makan will be for your farewell. :D

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

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

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...
