Three States Before Chinese New Year

FROM SG BULOH TO IPOH THEN TO PENANG...

These short trips were made from one Sunday to another Sunday.... We spent four days in Sg. Buloh, traveled back to Ipoh for two nights and then went up north to Penang for one night.  The trip up north was impromptu, since I was not the driver, I just followed the young ones for a night stay.  What I worried was the traffic jam, I was expecting the worst but to our relief and delight, the drive to Penang was very smooth.  Of course, inside the island itself, the traffic was super heavy, this time we played smart, we used Grab car services to ferry us around...
A short walk around the 1-U mall... 
Came here for Go Noodles and Bubble tea... 
Very nice feel of the CNY decorations..
In the evening, we had our dinner at Hakka Ren Restaurant... 
We ordered 5 dishes.. somehow only these three were taken...
Must be due to the reason that we were too hungry by then!
Back in Ipoh, we went to court... badminton court!
Two hours of sweat... sauna for us....
For dinner we had Vietnamese food... 
Vietnamese salad...
And the rest of the dishes... I did not manage to take... 
yes, super hungry again!
From Ipoh to Penang... 113, Lebuh Melayu... 
This place is a Must for us... 
Again, no food pictures cos I posted this place a couple of times already... 

We took Grab services from hotel... Cost only RM5.. better than driving and walking!
And for coffee lovers, this was taken at Nordin Street, 
right in front of Cititel Express Hotel
where we stayed for one night.... 
We booked a family room for 4 of us, cost around RM270.00.
The next day we checked out around noon and reached Ipoh in less than 3 hours.

  2. You sure get around, don't you? But then again, it is so easy for you all there, such nice highways...not like our inter-town roads, all ruined by the half-dead, not really moving construction of the Pan-Borneo Highway. Used to take one and half hours to get to my girl's school in the jungle, now 2 and half, 5 hours return, 10 hours every week on the torturing roller coaster drive.

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...
