Special Steamed Fish In Chemor

COME MONDAY MORNING... I had an early breakfast with my ex-colleagues again, I forgot to take a picture of us, really "muhibbah-styled"... It is nice to get together once awhile to catch up with old and new ongoings that is happening around us. We had breakie in Silibin and I had capati, seems I am into Indian food these days!

 Immediately after my breakie, I parked my car in the office and waited for my two "foodie buddies" to join me for lunch!  Our destination was Chemor and it took almost half an hour to reach.  Anyway, it was still early when we reached Chemor... And we were quite undecided as to which to eat... Fish head noodles or steamed fish with rice??   Then we settled for the latter....
Before we arrived, my friend told me that I might not like what I see... 
Well, nothing so shocking to me... I am used to seeing and eating at sheds....
As long as the food is GOOD!
To quench our thirst, this is a good choice... 
Fresh Umbra Juice in Anchor Beer glass... hahahaa....
WIB to imitate MIB... 
And a cookie to go as "appetizer" before the meal.... 
We were the early birds and we had to wait for more than half hour 
for the chef to prepare the dishes... 
He was still busy "chopping" up the ingredients when we arrived...
We ordered eggs fried with bitter gourd....
Tapioca leaves in garlic... 
And their Special is Steamed Talapia with lots of Garlic, Ginger and Chilipadi!
The fish has no smell and very fresh too...
Three dishes in all... 
And the bill comes to RM47 ($12usd???)
Oooopppsss... don't start eating first... 
Somebody's camera got to "eat" as well before we humans do.... 
hahahaha...

    1. Got difference ah? Fried egg with bitter gourd.. :)

    2. Got!!! Of course, there is a difference! This is like bitter gourd omelette - a lot of egg, can hardly see the bitter gourd. Usually, it is fried bitter gourd with egg added, mostly bitter gourd and not so much egg. Salted egg would be great too...and some use century egg as well. All nice!

  3. I like 2 types of steamed fish.. The "cheong jing" (taucu sauce) and the normal garlic+ginger+sesame oil sauce... I like the fukua chin tan too, but normally I'll stick to fu-yong egg coz the kids like it..

  11. I always enjoy meeting up with ex colleagues! There is more to gossip and talk without reservations than to meet relatives! Oh dear, relatives can be good actors.
    Wow! Yummy Umbra juice again. When I posted about Umbra juice, it was like kicking up a storm here as it is very rare to find this drink in KL. I believe you guys enjoy ample healthy juices easily in Ipoh.

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...
