Gold Note Of Hope

TWO DAYS AFTER VALENTINE... we were window shopping at AEON Falim when we saw a crowd in one of the goldsmith shops in the mall.  No, there was no robbery, we were surprised that the shop was filled with people inside on this special evening.  On normal days, it is a common sight that the staff are looking out for customers or ushering them to come into their shop, but on this particular evening, all the staff were busy and had their hands full with the customers instead.  Out of curiosity, we approached the shop too... wondering if there were some free gift or what.... LOL...

We walked one round in the shop, no one was free to entertain us.. LOL.. "Ok, we come back later, I told my friends" and went for our groceries.  An hour later, we passed by the shop again, Poh Kong is the name and this time there was one lady staff who was finally available.  She told us that it is a normal sight during Chinese New Year that the chinese like to purchase gold, it signifies "prosperity" and that means "Ong" in cantonese.  No wonder... and another reason is that there is this Golden Note which is made of 0.1gm of pure gold, limited edition of our present reigning Prime Minister with his signature on it.  This Gold Note Of Hope is a token of appreciation to our PM's battle for reigniting Malaysia's hope, so it says in their website. 

The Golden Note of Hope cost RM160, out of which part of the proceeds will go to the Tabung Harapan .
At Poh Kong while stocks last... 
There is also a certificate for each Golden Note... 

It comes with a nice red box.... 
A perfect gift to give... 
And a nice souvenir to keep for life...

  1. Hmmm...the way things are going, yet to see any light at the end of tunnel. But RM160 only is cheap, not solid gold, I guess. Gold is so so expensive these days. Can't even afford a simple ring.

  2. That would be a good keepsake to invest. Someday it becomes a collector's item with appreciated value.

  3. Did you buy one? I bought one to give to a friend's niece who is a fan of the PM now as her birthday present.

  4. Youngsters nowadays prefer silver than gold, but gold is more valuable.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
