Lithuanian Artist Ernest Zacharevic In Ipoh

During our long lunch hour this afternoon, Elin and I went to a number of places... from old town, we went to Ipoh Garden to do some banking, then to Kampong Simee to have laksa for lunch, then back to old town to catch some desserts and finally back to office around 2.30pm...
We were here initially.... but there was no parking so we left for Ipoh Garden.... 
Then we came back again to this place to look for a parking...
See how "Jam" the place is.....
But we managed to find one parking eventually.... phewww....
We were right outside the coffeeshop....
And there was a big crowd there...
I thought someone is "filming" initially....
People of all ages are so fascinated.... 
So... this is the reason for the crowd....
Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic!
Not wanting to be left out, Elin and I joined in .....
 He is obviously oblivious of the crowd... 
Fully concentrated.....
 That was about it, I suppose....
 A few more touch ups ...
 and he is ready to go....
That's it!   
Good Job Done!
The crowd has gone..... we went for our desserts...
Soon it was time for us to go too...
Back to Office!

  5. How nice to be able to catch him in action! I wonder whether he was commissioned to do the drawing or not. Nice photo of you standing beside the little girl.

  8. He was in Kuching some few months ago and he drew two orang utans, one swinging from a branch and another sitting in a wheelbarrow. He is such a good artist. This picture is almost like the one in Penang but this one is a girl instead of a boy.

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...
