Pre-Retirement Farewell At Simpang Tiga Restaurant

The time has come... my colleague and I are retiring... actually I still have another three weeks to go... or is it two???  Ok, whatever.. or whenever, I still will go in the month of Febuary....and our office held our farewell meal at Simpang Tiga this afternon.   I was looking forward to the meal  and the presents but not towards the Farewell Speech at all.. and I ended up spending an hour to prepare it.. oh my goodness!
And so here we are... at the Simpang Tiga Restaurant.... 
 
Nice set-up.....
 
Both of us are the going-to-be retirees...
With my cute "daughter"....
and my good friend of many years....
Mingling before the VIP arrives.... 
My colleagues....
 and my colleagues.... hahahaa...
soon... we have to be seated... 
and the "movie" starts...
and the moment of "trembles" began..
No, I didn't cry....
Cos I have a few presents in store for me!
hahahahaa...
 
Each of us received three packages....
For our "hard work" done....
hahahhaa..
Just kidding!
Second round of "Retirement" celebration.... ..
A Big Thank you to my office mates!

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.......

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...
