Trip To Penang For Food And Desserts

Last Saturday my girl and I set out on a clear sunny morning... we took a slow drive up north to Penang island for a two nights getaway, a day after I "unofficially" retired.  
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright ... bright....
Sun-Shiny day.
 
Mama started the engine rolling down the tunnel... 
till we reached the Panglima Bukit Gantang resthouse...
then the small girl took over the wheel... 
because mama knows the roads are "straighter" and easier to monitor....
let her have a "feel" of how it is on a highway..... 
but of course, mama's turn before reaching the toll... 
So hungry we were... we ended up going to Perak Road...
Taking yam rice at Canton shop...
Salted Vegetables soup with meaty balls and varieties....
Long time I didn't take salted vege soup..
Ordered a small bowl of pork knuckles, beancurd and one egg....
The bill came to around RM14...
 Next, we ended up in Prangin Mall.... 
At the Teochew Chendol Stall
In time to watch some "A-Go-Go" dancers in tune with some 1970s songs....
.... at the same time enjoying our bowl of cendol at the Teochew stall...
Creamy and Santan-ic as usual.....
Time to lose some calories after that.... 
We walked for a couple of hours doing some "window shopping"
before we proceeded to check in to our hotel at Tanjung Bungah...

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...
