On The First Day Of CNY At Pakeeza

Busy... Busy for the past few days.... neglected my blog till this very day which is now the sixth day of Chinese New Year.  Nevertheless, I need to post up my photos for memory sake and to keep reanaclaire.com alive and kicking!  LOL...

On the first day of Chinese New Year... we were on our own... No homecooked food at home ever since my late mom had closed her kitchen few years ago.  This year is no different, we went for Indian food again at the same place, Pakeeza restaurant in town.  Only difference is that my boy and my girl were not here for the lunch, and I "replaced" them with my niece and nephew instead!  Part of family too... LOL...
And we ordered these dishes to fill our hunger for lunch...... A very kind of different meal compared to the our CNY dishes and we love it!  I was not surprised that the restaurant was occupied by mostly Chinese instead of other races.  Obviously there are many who are like me, escaping from the kitchen and enjoyed being served with different kind of food which we normally have.  Nice food, reasonable bill which comes to around RM90 for the four of us.  A once-a-year affair at this time of the year!

  2. Wow! That is a lot of food for only 4 persons but I like to eat this style of food. Why once a year? You can always go and eat at this Pakeeza restaurant any time you feel like it. Hope you are having a great CNY so far.

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...
