Dinner At CJ Hotpot On The First Day Of CNY

STEAMBOAT DINNER ON THE FIRST DAY OF CNY...

As usual, there is no cooking in the house during this festive season.  Mama is lazy, she does not like to do cleaning up especially after the cooking, after all, she is not a good cook... Might as well take this opportunity to go out and look for food.  And since it was a cool evening, all of us agreed to have the special steamboat in CJ Hot Pot in Ipoh Garden East...

Before we arrived, we already thought of Plan B... just in case this CJ Hot Pot is not opened, we will go to another restaurant nearby.  To our delight, it was opened and there were still a few empty tables too!  I was expecting the place to be full since it was the first day of CNY... and half-way through our dinner, the place was full to the brim.  Good to be early diners.... I must say...
Waiting for it to boil....
We ordered a side dish... too dark to recognise what it is?
This is fried mantis with spring onions and dried chillies... 
Cannot expect much during this festive period...
However this did not disappoint us.... 
We ordered some extras....
That is for our dinner on the First day of CNY!

  1. Eating out is a practical solution. I too dread the clean up!

  4. Every year my mom would cook but we do help in the cleaning after that, many utensils and plates to clean and the floor is oily too, yet we still prefer to eat at home as eat outside during cny is expensive and you may wait long due to the crowd and the quality of food might be compromised hee hee

  6. We were not celebrating but we had steamboat at home, a simple one, with our bed-ridden mum and that sure meant a lot to her and us.

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...

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
