Our First Chinese New Year Dinner In Perling, Johor


That is why we normally do when we reach Johor, or should I say... me?  This time I brought my buddy along on this trip.  She is my childhood friend since.... how many years back?   Cannot remember, more than 40 years anytime!   LOL... That shows how "young" we are now...

Anyway, I am so glad she finally followed me on this southbound trip, my kids are very comfortable with her, she is more or less their so-called "Kai Ma" aka Second Mother... I remember during the time when I was still working and had to go on "kursus" (seminars/training/games) away from home, I would send SOS to my friend to come over and stay with my kids.  At least I have a peace of mind with her around in the house during my absence. 

Back to my first evening in Johor... my in-laws are very nice folks.  Whenever we come down to Johor, they would invite us out for dinner and this time they took us to a new restaurant in Perling.  So excited or so hungry about eating that I practically forget to take down the name of the place... Oh well... perhaps the next time round... LOL...

This is a set meal which cost around RM238 excluding the appetizer and the dessert.... 
Since it was still CNY, we ordered Loe Sang as appetizers to start off... 
I just cannot get fed-up eating this again and again!
Fook Chow soup... sour and a bit spicy... with bamboo shoots..
Many do not like the smell of that but I really don't mind.... 
Mixed vegetable with a few Macadamia nuts... 
Buttered Prawns.... 
Saucy Steam Fish.... 
Meat Trotters in claypot....
For the 7 of us.... 
Oh yeah, this dish was ordered separately.... 
And that was more than enough for 7 mouths!  LOL...
For Ipohians,  one look they will know this is the trademark design from Nancy Chong... 
My niece requested for it and we brought it all the way from Ipoh.... 
My kids also love this butter cake very much!
For one kilo, it is now selling at RM65 ($16usd)


  1. Same here, the loe sang, I won't ger fed up eating it, hehe...

  2. That is a good price for a 1 kg butter cake. That is a lot of food for that price. Good deal. I like that they add macadamia nuts to that dish.

  3. Wah. Those dishes.. My favourite. And i love bamboo shoots. Haha.

  4. These are all my favourite dishes, I could finish 2 bowls of rice for this meal..butter cake with coffee would be a nice combination.

    1. I can go for butter cake with water too.. hahahaa

  5. The Foochow soup looks more like Szechuan soup to me. Give me the trotters, anytime!

    1. I think it is foochow... szechuan soup also something like that gua...

  6. Your in-laws so nice to treat to such sumptuous dinner. The steamed fish so tempting.

  7. nice dishes and i like the old fashioned cake!

  8. I must be sleepy to read that it is "Foo Chow" soup! Hee-hee! I love that soup.
    Nancy's cakes are so famous by one look. How could they tell?

    1. Cos of the pattern... their only one and design...

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
