Stuck At Nibong Tebal

Started on our journey up north this morning at around 11am... And the journey was smooth sailing until one km from Nibong Tebal... The one kilometer felt like ten kilometers, snail crawling at the highway.  From then to the toll, it took us an hour I guess... and we heard that one lorry overturned and  the highway from NB was closed... Every vehicle had to detour to Nibong Tebal and had to use the old trunk road ....
Crawling traffic.....
I was very hungry by the time we passed the toll and into the old trunk road in NB...
We had to stop here for lunch to prevent my tummy from growling further.... 
After all, it was pass 2pm already!
Any dish on the wall looks yummy to me!
And we ordered these.... Honey pai kwat wong.... No bones just meat.....
Sambal tapioca leaves with three prawns....
And their special lemongrass fish head soup which was so up to my standard... 
Hahhhaaaa....
And this "captain" is the one who recommended the dishes.... And served us as well...
Sat down to talk to us too... and the bill came to RM36 after much talking... Hahahaa....
After our lunch, we proceeded with our journey and reached Penang around 4pm! 
Phewwww......

  1. That was about double your usual time for you to reach Penang. But I think all the yummy dishes compensates for the delay. I would love to taste the lemon grass fish head soup!

  2. If got good company in the car, it is ok to be stuck in a traffic jam because can chit chat and won't be boring.

  3. That's the old trunk road? So so so so much nicer than our miserable so-called "highway".

  6. Sien, overturned lorry is the most frustrating one, it brings traffic to a standstill! Too bad it happened before the 2nd bridge, else you can use the 2nd bridge to enter the island..

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!

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...
