A Foodie Trip From Ipoh To Chemor

YAY!!! TODAY IS THE DAY!!
Through "watsapp", we the three retirees finally met up  this morning at 10.30am... I was all ready to be "picked up" by my ex-colleagues and we were looking forward to a day of Food! 
The Foodie Trio!!

We started off with a Duck Project and the place is called Old Friends Restaurant.  It is located on the main road leading to Chemor town.  The Duck project had been put off many times before due to our busyness and this morning we finally made it to that place.... 
 
Though we reached there around 11.30am, the ducks were nearly all "booked"...
There were only two left for sale, we overheard....
This is the first time I get to taste this...
No wonder they get sold out fast... the meat was really tender and "yup mei!"
Don't need any sweet sauce to go with them at all...
Thumbs up for the food!
After our scrumptious lunch, we continued on with our foodie trip to a small town, Chemor...
We stopped here at this shop famous for their fish head and seafood noodles....
 
Since we were already "half-full" we ordered just a bit to try... to satisfy our curiosity...
A bit of this and that... fish maw, fish paste and wanton...
And the soup has this cilantro taste which really suited our taste buds!
 
We planned to go there some day to try the seafood noodles and fish head! 
Worth making another trip there.. perhaps next Friday??? 
Along the same row, something caught our "beauty eyes!"
hahahahaa...   
 DURIANS! 
 There and then, the vendor opened up one for us to eat....
And my friend ended up buying the rest of them!
 
The durian vendor is so cute...
And the durians are Very creamy and bittersweet!!
 
 Ok, we promised him that we would advertise his durians...
They were sold for RM8 each... good buy.. 
They are called "Da-nau"
 
Oh, he has these "Crystal Jackfruits" too... 
Did I get it correct? 
Yes, we need to "advertise" these as well... 
It is all in a Package.. hahahaha...
Otherwise we couldn't get them cheap... 
  He even gave us his phone number... 
Call him in advance so that we won't be disappointed!
Mike Mar... no joke!!
Durians all sold out to my friend...
Even coconuts were finished too!
Everyone was Happy And Satisfied with the outcome in Chemor.... 

But that is not the end of the food trip for us....
From Chemor, we drove all the way to First Garden to visit this lady....
Her smooth homemade Tau Fu Far!
Just look at me!  My double chin is coming up next!
Rounded faces could be seen even from afar!
Yes, our foodie trip from 11am till 3pm....
Phew... what a Full-Filling Day!
Thank you for the Food-Fillment, ladies!

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

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

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...
