Dinner For Three At Hook Sang, Bukit Indah, Johor

MY LONGEST STAY IN JOHOR this time ever.... almost a month.  It is like being "alienated" from Ipoh, driving will take six hours and flight will take more than an hour.  But nowadays only Malindo is flying from JB to Ipoh, their prices are expensive ranging from RM200 over.  That means I have to stay here longer to make my money's worth.  LOL...

On evenings when the kitchen is closed, I go out with my kids for dinner nearby our place.  Most of the time when we eat out, it is normally on Fridays and weekends.  On normal days I will cook a simple meal for ourselves.  One of the food places I like to go is Hook Sang which is very near to our little nest. But lately I heard that the food prices have increased... two reasons... 1) our country's economy and 2) our neighbours who boost up the economy... Get what I mean?  LOL...
The place was quite crowded especially on Fridays... 
The four king beans....
Something juicy with this dish called Beer Ribs... 
With a dash of sesame seeds... yes, I like it.. soft bones and the sweet sauce.. 
Couldn't resist these prawn fritters in salted egg... but super expensive...
For just a few pieces, it cost RM30...
We also ordered a small portion of Hokkien noodles...
ahhh.. this one cannot be compared to another shop... 
The noodles were very rubbery... maybe not cooked enough... 

But this combination is fantastic!
We love this.... 
For the above dishes plus the prawns and hokkien noodles, 
the bill came to a whooping RM77... 
Ok, expensive or not, next time we better "minus" the prawns... LOL...

  1. Wow! How did you survive well for a month there without your Ipoh gangs around? I think Rm200+ for the air ticket is still affordable as the quality family bonding is priceless. JB has many good eating places but the prices are meant for Singaporeans.

    1. You are very right! Somehow we malaysians have to survive over there... instead of three meals, cut down to two or one and a half...:)

  10. The Wan Tan Hor looks very flavourful with the charcoal colour and yes prawns are expensive, the salted egg prawns I had at Nan Hwa Chong (Ah Chew) Fish Head Steamboat Corner cost S$15.

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...
