Kuala Kurau Salted Eggs

Last Thursday we "attacked" the northern region, we went to Kerian in the morning and Taiping in the afternoon.  The five of us set out again in the early morning, reaching Kerian at around 9.30am...
The historic landmark in Parit Buntar, Kerian....
After this turning, we reached our district office.... 
The district office...
Another beautiful indoor landscape right in the middle of two buildings..
Spent the whole morning in this office doing some work....
After lunch, we proceeded to Kuala Kurau....
Famous for their salted fish... lots seen drying on the sidewalks....
And famous for Salted Eggs as well.....
Salted eggs that come with grading......
Some educational knowledge here...
The mud that is being used to "preserve" the duck eggs....
And the black burnt barley seeds/leaves (not so sure) that is used to wrap up the mud.... 
Since this is a factory, the salted eggs should be very fresh.....
But I didn't buy any.....
Instead I bought dried prawns instead... 
They look very fresh!
In the afternoon, we drove on to Taiping...
We spent some hours there slogging again....
And finally it is all done....
Just look at my hair...
From natural back to yellow?  Or is it white??
I am indeed growing old.... gracefully, I hope....

  1. I love travelling by car, can enjoy seeing the beautiful scenery but on the other hand, it can be tiring. The dried prawns looks very fresh. I think it's the lighting that makes your hair looks yellowish.

  10. Your hair looks good, it looks like you had it streaked. Many pay lots of big money here to have it done every couple months. We do not have salted eggs here, wish I could taste one...I love both eggs and salt!

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...
