Baking Bread With Tesco Breakmaker

BREAD MODE....

My Khind breadmaker has given up on me, the paddle just wouldn't turn and that happened before the MCO was implemented.  Instead of buying a new one, I borrowed my sister's Tesco breadmaker, I remember she telling me that she stops using it after one try.  Her bread turned out hard, I do not know why.... so I took the risk and tried it myself two days ago.  I googled for the recipe, following the orderly steps as mentioned.  The only change I made is that I used remaining bread flour in my fridge and mixed it with plain flour. 

The difference between my Khind and Tesco breadmaker is the sizes.  Khind loaf size is just nice for one person whereas Tesco one is enough for a family of 4.  Anyway..... I can always keep the remaining pieces in the fridge, two pieces per day is more than enough for me.
280ml water
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
420gm flour
1tbsp milk powder (I didn't put cos I don't have that)
pinch of salt
1tsp yeast is the last ingredient to put in... 
After 3 hours... 
The crust is a bit hard when it is hot.... 
But softer after cooling down..... 
Soft inside though... 
8 pieces in one loaf.... 
For my breakfast this morning.... 
One piece with Kaya and one with peanut butter... 
Very filling... 
Next time I will try putting in dried cranberries, raisins and nuts!

  1. Congratulations! You have made good research and baked a perfect loaf. When you add those dried fruits, they will add moisture and light fragrance to your next bread.

  2. It was the craze at one time, cheap then. Everyone in the family bought and was making bread every day...and then it fizzled out. I wonder if they still have their breadmakers and whether they can still be used. At a time like this, I regret not buying one myself - would be nice to make one's own bread, no need to go out and buy.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
