Dinner For Six At Villas Osborne Street, Ipoh

DINING OUT....  This time we went to the Villas, an open air aluminium roofing type of stall along Jalan Osborne.  I brought along a big fish which I bought from an online fresh fish delivery website.  The fish is called Tiger Garoupa, 1 kilogram in weight, cost around RM60-70.  A few days earlier before we went to this place, we asked the boss whether he could steam the fish for us....and his answer was a positive... 

There were six of us for this dinner and we ordered these dishes before.... when the bill came, , my son's eyes expanded automatically... the whole set of dinner cost around RM70 plus only!  LOL... 

Alright, maybe the dishes were not the expensive type... these were what we ordered.... 

Steamed 3 types of eggs.... 
Roasted Pork with chives.... 
Another mixed vegetables with sambal....
Braised Pork belly
Claypot potato leaves with lots of lard.... 
And the fish I brought along.... 
He just charged the ingredients and labour...
That means only 5 dishes plus charges... 
Actually come to think of it now, it was not that cheap la... 
This dessert is not included.... 
Gula Melaka jelly... I think it cost around RM14... 
Anyway, it was a very heavy meal for the 6 of us... 
We surely will come back on another day for other dishes!

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... 

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
