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.

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? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... 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...
