Weekend Getaway For Pontian Noodles In Pontian

DURING THE WEEKEND, we made a one day trip to Kukup.  We have never been there and I was certainly ALL ready to anticipate this outing.  The guys did some "homework" beforehand, how to go and most important, what to eat on the way.  I just sit back and relax, wherever they lead me, I will go.  :)

We started the journey only after we woke up refreshed and energized and by the time we had our first meal, it was almost noon in Pontian.  Yes, we took a 45 minutes drive all the way to Pontian, a small town which I always hear of but never been.  Mention Pontian, the first thing that came to my mind is the wanton mee, a very common eatery in Johor.  I have tried eating Pontian noodles near my area but there is nothing much to shout about.  But since we are going for the original Pontian wanton mee, I am looking forward to trying the "real thing"....
This is the shop that came up "1st" on the reviews in Google... 
Plenty of people... good sign?
While waiting for our orders, we had these side snacks to keep our mouths occupied... \
Otak-Otak is the name.. made of ground fish meat mixed with spices... 
My son called it Brain Food... LOL..

Two types of Pontian Noodles here...
Either take it with black sauce....
Or another flavour is mixing it with tomato sauce...
I wanted something different so I ordered this for myself..
Surprisingly, it was not that bad... 
At least they tasted so much better than the ones I had before...
*Original is always better, right?*
The noodles are different from Ipoh wanton noodles..
Texture and the taste are different... 
More on the Kampua noodles, I would say.... 
Anyway, it is not cheap... RM5 for a bowl... 
and comes with a bowl of three small fishballs and three wantons... 
hhmmmm...... 
Ate and Tarpau-ed some Fish Crackers back.... 
Soon... we were on our way to Kukup, a tourist spot for both locals and Singaporeans....

  7. The noodles all look so good! I bet your girl would love them, I know noodles are her favorite. Maybe one day you will go with her. What are the green and black stalks, are they involved with the cooking?

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....

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...
