Chinese New Year Surprise Gifts

MONDAY GIFTS...  My niece messaged me early on a Monday morning asking me whether I would be home the whole day.  She said her gift would be arriving anytime yesterday.  So I waited.... yes, one van came horning at my front gate around noon.  I carried the box in and did not open till it was late afternoon. 


When I opened the white box, I was surprised to see cans of abalones and a dozen bottles of birds nest.  Wahhhhh..... I was thinking why my niece was so generous this year and I quickly took some pictures and sent them to her, saying a Big Thank You!  Her reply surprised me.... "Äuntie, these gifts are definitely not from me!  Mine are cheap skate gifts.... LOL"..... 

Oh, the moment I read that, I messaged my kids' whatsapp group.... "Anyone of you sent these?"  And one reply came promptly... "Yes, we bought these.... "

Thank you, Kids!
Will think of you all each time I drink one bottle...
LOL.... 

On the same day around 4pm, another van came horning at my front gate... OH, again?  This time must be from my niece, I was telling myself... I took a picture of the box and sent to her again... "Ïs this from you?" 

Once again, she replied... "No la... mine are much cheaper stuff.... "
LOL...
Anyway, I got to know who sent these yummy healthy snacks...
Thank you, Mr & Mrs JH!!

p/s: my niece's gift has not arrived yet though she messaged to tell me...
those who did not tell me, their gifts arrived... 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

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...
