Five Of Us Gathered At Old Man, Ipoh

A FEW OF US EX-SCHOOLMATES gathered for a dinner to celebrate the November "babies" ... Yes, I know I posted a post on a dinner with my ex-es recently at Lanna Thai restaurant.  That is a different group... LOL... and on this evening, it is another group whom I also mix with.  Well, I guess I am a "good mixer" in school last time.  LOL... Just kidding!  Frankly speaking, I held a very "low profile" during my school days, not many know me then in the 1970s.  Well, now in the 2000s... I am still the same.  Mention my name, many of them still reply, "Who?? who is T... S... L.... Can see picture first??" 

Alright, back to my low profile birthday celebration, five of us had a simple dinner at a place called Old Man Restaurant!  Yes, what a name for a restaurant, I must ask the owner one day the reason why it is named Old Man.  Yeah, I know what you are thinking.... Add a Dirty in front and everyone will remember this place forever!  LOL...

Since there were only 5 of us, we ordered four dishes to accommodate our tummies....
Very flavourful Yam with Braised Meat.... 
I "stole" the yam only from this dish ... 
Recommended is the Chicken Chestnut in Claypot... 
A bit sweet cos of the sweetened chestnuts.. 
Not too bad, something different... 
I welcomed this dish with open arms... 
Claypot Cabbage cooked with Glass noodles and beancurd skin.... 
Yes, it was fuming hot when served.... 
Buttered Mantis.... goes well with the dinner anytime!
The Four dishes for the Five of us... 
Bill comes to around RM70plus with drinks... 
Not too bad at Old Man, right?

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

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
