Gifts On My Birthday

SURPRISE!!!

I can only think of one good thing that Covid brings upon me this year.  Only one.... that is... I have my kids with me.  Though not all of them, at least I have two with me for some time now.  They go back on and off to their working town and then come back again after awhile.  So this year, I get to see them the most in their 10 years of working life! 

On this day they are here with me and I had a beautiful surprise this morning!  I have been thinking for the past few days, wondering whether they remember my B-day or not... LOL... they gave no hint whatsoever, these kids!  I almost doubted that they remember at all... LOL... 

After my zoom meeting with my church members around 11plus, I walked into the living hall and received a big "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" shout from them.  Ok, not really a shout la, just a bit louder than the normal voice tone.... LOL... 

On the table laid a bouquet of flowers, cakes and buns from Shake n Bake.... After the Happy Birthday singing, cutting the cake and all... came my present of the year.  LOL... 


YAY!  I finally have a phone model newer than them!  LOL... 
Though not the latest 12 model, it is still newer than 
the ones my kids are using... hahaha... 
Nice colour too....
Pastel Purple... 
Love.... 
Thank you for the Sweet Surprise!!

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

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...
