Self Torturing With Ipoh Delights

IN THE MIDST OF MY CONVERSATION WITH MY FRIEND THIS MORNING, we finally came to a point where both of us agreed that Ipoh is indeed the Best place for us to spend our golden years.....

When I am away from Ipoh, I miss her very much!  I mean Ipoh... Been to so many places, local or overseas, I realized my heart is still back home here in Ipoh... No wonder I have so much difficulty adapting to the other food especially those non-Asian ones... That is my problem... I am like a frog underneath a coconut shell when it comes to Food!

Now in my "driver-less" state, I seem to be yearning more and more.... How I wish someone could just bring in these goodies to me... this very minute!!  Yes, I sound very "desperate" for these below... I shouldn't have opened my food folder a moment ago... Now I am DONE!  
Cowan Street or Jalan Raja Ekram dessert shop......
They sell fresh snacks and desserts...
I like them all!!
Even their dilute porridge.... no meat.... just peanuts, a bit of dry oysters and that is it....
Their red bean aka "ang tau" in hokkien is my favourite too!
Steamed yam.... soft to my liking....
Another type of food on my mind right now... is Porridge!
White porridge with this dish is salivating enough for me... 
I am very simple, right????!
Easy dish and best eaten while it is hot.....
Their clear soup with meat bones is making me drool too.....
All these can be taken at the shop next to Grand View Restaurant
near Ipoh Garden East..... 
Anyone passing there this evening?  
Can "packet" some for me, Please????
*self torturing mode*

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...
