Pandan Pancake At Pengkalan 66

YAY!! BACK IN IPOH!!!

Back to "attack" Ipoh food which I have missed for more than nearly two weeks!  LOL...  Okay, slowly does it.  First of all, let me show these photos I have taken in a food court called Pengkalan 66 in Shatin Park. 

This is called Apom Balik in Malay, peanut pancake in English and "Tai Kau Meen" in Cantonese.  I have been eating this and it has been one of my childhood favourite dessert!  Those days it was sold at 10 sen for a piece, 20 cents for 3 pieces and now 40 years later, it cost RM1.20 per piece.  Not surprising since so I am now in my fifties and not a kid anymore.  :)
This is the first time buying from this stall at the food court...
Caught him in action doing a new piece of Pandan Pancake....
This type of pancake must be eaten when it is freshly done...
Once cold, it can be quite chewy... and it won't be as good.... 

Nice timing.... the pancake was just taken out from the hot pan....
And the action begins.... 
Butter it nice and rich....
Then flood it with lots of peanuts on one side....
And he began to cut it up piece by piece... 
I was already salivating by then... hahahahaa...
Just look at that!
Overflowing with peanuts!
Yes, I ate these up.... fresh and hot!

  4. No place like home - that is always the case when I travel, can't wait to get home to enjoy our own local delights. I've heard of people stopping on the way from the airport for a plate of kampua mee...before going home!

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
