Rice Bowl And Leatherby's At Sacramento

IT WAS A SUNDAY EVENING THAT WE DID NOT COOK.... and my sister took us for nice Hongkong restaurant called Rice Bowl for dinner.  To beat the crowd, we reached the place around 5.30pm and a wedding dinner was already in process.  So early!  Weddings in Ipoh only starts around 8pm and over here in Sacramento, the restaurant close at 8.30pm, hence the early wedding dinner.  In the midst of our dinner, we heard Lion Dance music instead of those romantic songs... Oh, I guess we were mistaken, it was not a wedding dinner but some organizing event.  hehehe... 

As for our food, we had this set for the six of us..... came with free papaya soup and red bean desserts after our dinner.

  2. Food in US is cheaper than here (Aussie). It would cost around $70 to $80 for 6 persons for the dinner like that.

    1. Maybe due to the exchange rate? Or perhaps more competitive over here in US..

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.......

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...
