Birthday Celebration At East Ocean, Menglembu

SOMEHOW THIS POST SLIPPED THROUGH MY FINGERS... cos this birthday happened before the previous one on promotion.

With the group apps, it is so much easier to plan and update one another.  During my yesteryears, how did we contact one another to celebrate something?  I think it is through word by mouth or the black phone in the house.  But then not everyone has a black phone in the house those days.  I am talking about the years back in the 70s.... hahahahaa...  Ok, never mind the past... it happened so long ago and I could not remember much at my age now.

Coming back to my topic, the eight of us met up in East Ocean Restaurant in Menglembu to celebrate one of my ex-classmates' birthday.  One by one each of us have reached one digit higher than the rest though we were born of the same year.  Mine is still a couple of months away... *hint hint* No worries, by the time it is my turn, I will yell out LOUD!
Started off with a bowl of soup minus the shark fins...
Instead they put in misua to replace... 
Very tasty surprisingly!
This one came in first.... I remember cos it is my favourite dish...
Steamed Yam with dried shrimps as toppings!
Then all the dishes came in at one shot...
Garoupa in spring onions and ginger...
Kailan with the soft type of fungus...
Mixed vegetables...
Well, I guess we are pretty conscious on our food... mostly veg!
Followed by Buttered Prawns in curry leaves...
And lastly, Lemon Fried chicken... 
For desserts, we have their signature pudding... RM3 each...

We had two types of Cakes.... 
The Yam Cake ...
And the Buttered Cup Cakes by Nancy Chong... each cost RM3 for a mini-sized cup...
And that is our Birthday Girl for the evening.... 
So... who will be the Next one in line?
September is coming soon!
Oh, about the bill, it came to around RM300 over...

  3. A nice gatherinv and birthday celebration.

    Remember the black phone where you need to use your finger to turn and dial the number. Remember we used it before switching to the button pressing type.

    Nowadays everyone has handphone. The house phone is not much use at all. Jusr apply to get internet line only. ^^

  7. The soup looks so good. And the cupcakes are beautiful! The pudding looks like it is surrounded by egg drop soup! Lovely.

  8. Is mock shark fin soup common these days?

    Are cakes generally of good quality esp the chocolate cake or brownies in coffee shops or eateries (except high-end eateries) in Malaysia?

    Cakes are generally of poor quality in Turkey. Their chocolate cake and chocolate desserts have a low cocoa butter content. Usually, the cakes are layered with thick lashings of cream; vegetable based ???? but definitely not butter cream. I don't know about five stars hotels and foreign ??? owned (not Starbucks) eateries in Istanbul. In the supermarkets including corner shops, there are different types of premix for puddings and cakes.

    1. Yes, shark fins are not encouraged nowadays... so they replace with other creativity... Cakes here depends on which shops.. the ones that I normally love to order is Nancy Chong, famous since the 1960s...

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...
