Our First Dinner At San Low, Johor

ARRIVED SAFELY IN JOHOR... It was nearly 6pm when we reached the doorstep.  Good to be back in our little nest again even only for a few days.  My son did some slight renovation, giving it a new facelift in some areas. 

Leaving our bags in our rooms, my son took us for dinner. Took us to a place I have never been before and we ordered a few dishes.  Actually the three of us were still full from our Malacca lunch and I ate just a bit of that... just for taste.  Maybe I was also tired after the long hours of driving, though I did not really drive.  Sometimes just sitting as a passenger can be exhausting too, right?  LOL... 

This is the place San Low... 
Smack meehoon.... as commonly known in Johor... 
My blurry Wat Tan Hor...
Forgot the name of this dish.... 
Otak-Otak... 
Oh yeah... a dish of fried mini squids...
Lastly, the desserts... Or Nee...
Yam paste with pumpkin and gingko.. 
Taste good but a bit too oily for me...
Normally in other places, the oil is not so obviously seen... 
Bill for the whole meal came to around RM97.50...

  1. Sitting as a passenger is also very tiring because have to keep the driver awake no matter how tired or sleepy throughout the journey.

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

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....

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

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...
