Hotpot On A Rainy Day

NON STOP RAINING IN IPOH...  and I heard many places as well.  For the first time, neither fan or air con need to be switched on yesterday, so nice to sleep with the cooling air blowing in through the windows.  On the negative side, there were floods here and there, landslides especially in Camerons.... many places were affected by the non-stop rain for the past two days.  

Today is slightly better, no rain but still cloudy.  The non-stop raining for the more than 24 hours reminded me of Noah's Ark... Yesterday I was thinking whether the rain would continue on and on, it has been a long time since it rained non stop for more than 24 hours.

Since we did not feel like going out in the rain, we had our three meals in the house.  Started with toasted bread and half boiled eggs in the morning, followed by hotpot lunch at 3pm (by the time we finished preparing everything.... No more greens in the fridge and the only option is to call SOS to Tesco and the greens were delivered within 40 minutes.  Quickly I boiled the soup...... and only by 3pm, we filled our hungry tummies.... 

Greens, luncheon meat, fresh prawns and wanton noodles.... 
For 4 hungry people.... 
Our pot of treasure consisting with just vegetables... 
LOL... 
With the pouring rain outside, we were enjoying our hotpot lunch inside.... 
Simple and yet satisfying....

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...
