Surprise Birthday Dinner At STG Boutique Cafe, Ipoh

IT HAPPENED ON THE EVE OF MY BIRTHDAY...

I received a message in the afternoon, inviting me to join this lovely family for dinner at 7pm in the evening.  I cordially said Yes, I would love to go with them, not knowing where they were going actually.  But I did ask whether it is a formal or informal and my friend's reply was, "just be casual and I would be wearing Bermuda shorts".... LOL.. Sounds good to me, I like casual wear too!

It was drizzling that evening and on the way, we went to the railway station to pick up a lovely lady who was coming back from Kuala Lumpur.  Then we adjourned for our dinner at STG Boutique Cafe in old town. This is my second time to this place, the first time was a few years back if I am not mistaken.  Anyway, the ambience was beautiful and cozy...unfortunately I didn't go round taking pictures of the place.  Shy ma...
Christmas tree at the corner.... 
Managed to take this from the corner I was sitting... 
As for the food, this is Mine!
Orange Grilled Chicken... 
A better light and angle from another camera... 
Lamb Shank for the younger generation... 
Managed to take two dishes in one picture... 
One is Braised Duck (if not mistaken) and Tomyam meehoon with Fried Chicken.. 
Ahhh... another photo from another camera... 
A bit too bright... 
Then when everything was eaten up and the table cleared...
The staff came out singing...
Happy Birthday and holding these in their hands.... 
Sparkling "champagne"...LOL...
And The Beloved Desserts!!
MY SURPRISED EXPRESSION.. captured!
My Lovely Friend who planned this!
Thank You so much, Florence!!
CHEERS TO GOOD HEALTH!!

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.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
