One Day Foodie Trail To Kuala Sepetang

STARTED OFF EARLY IN THE MORNING...  the six of us had our first meal at the Canning Garden Dim Sum.  We ordered some varieties just enough to last us for a couple of hours.   Our main itinerary of the day trip was a visit to Kuala Sepetang for a seafood meal so we did not want to "jam up" our tummies with the morning breakfast in Ipoh.   However... this did not happen as planned...

On the way using the old trunk road to Taiping, we passed by many durian stalls in this so-called place Bukit Gantang, famous for their durian orchards. Oh my goodness, I thought I was the only one tempted, but no.. all SIX of us are confirmed durian lovers!  Needless to say, we got to stop, somehow.... We must have our Fix on these, the intended-saving-space in our tummies were naturally forgotten!  LOL...
We wanted no famous names of the durians... no Musang, no Red Prawn, or Black Thorns...
All we wanted is those natural ones from original tall durian trees...
The Kampung Durians or Village Durians so it is translated... 
This Makcik is very friendly and pleasant...
She makes sure we eat with satisfaction.... 
Original ones are made of these... 
Those with worms at the side are a common sight... 
And that means chemical-free... I suppose!
Helping ourselves with the durians, one after another... 
Spent quite some time here satisfying ourselves with durians and mangosteens... 
Before we continue our drive to Kuala Sepetang, Taiping....

  4. Yes, this original authentic ones are still the best. All the whatever kings, the hybrids, taste fake, nothing like the real thing. I hear a lot of durians this year, so very cheap...even those over-rated expensive ones.

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....

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...
