Original Ah Leng Char Koay Teow In Ayer Itam, Penang

WHEN EVENING COMES....  It was around 5pm when we made a stop at Ayer Itam for the original Ah Leng Char Koay Teow.  In Mandarin it was pronounced as Ah Loong meaning dragon but when translated, it becomes Ah Leng which has the same spelling with my name.  LOL.... That is why I thought all along, this famous koay teow is manned by a lady.  But no, it is actually from a man who is now over 80 years old, he opens his stall at the side of his house in Ayer Itam whereas his son has a stall along Jalan Kramat.  

Since the father's stall opens in the evening, it is just nice for us to drop by and stuffed ourselves before going for our walk at the dam which is nearby.  We were the first customers and we could choose our seating.... both inside and outside the house is equally hot, we compared the hot air and finally opted for the outside air instead of being under the aluminium roofing.  
At the side of the house facing the road.... 
Food knows no bounds.. hot weather did not deter us from eating... 
(no, that is not my son... just in case anyone is wondering)  hahahaa..
He doesn't look 80, right?  Still going strong....
My son had the special....
Came with 4 big prawns and mantis... RM14
I had the regular.... 2 big prawns, mini cockles, no presentation for RM9
Get what I mean when I said no presentation? 
I did not edit anything... it was served like this, noodles to one side... 
LOL... 
And our table number to remember....

  4. The CKT uncle looks young for his age. It must be the CKT business that keeps him occupied and youthful!

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...
