Running Errands On The 6th Day Of Chinese New Year

STARTED OFF THE DAY going to the petrol station and the regular attendant who is mute and dumb, came and helped me, wiped my front and back mirror, checked the engine oil and water and after giving the thumbs up, I gave him a red packet.  Not much and he reciprocated with two palms signifying Happy New Year.  I used the same gesture to wish him back, thumbs up and we drove off.  A nice start off for the day.... 

Then we adjourned to have breakfast in Keng Nam, a corner coffeeshop in town, famous for their curry noodles and Kaya glutinous rice.  However we did not order curry noodles but a plate of Chee Cheong Fun instead.  After breakfast I drove to the mechanic, did some alignment and balancing costing RM90.  Went to bank while waiting and the last stop is the mall, did some groceries and by the time we reached home, it was almost 1pm.  Time really passes very fast each day!

A dash of hot and sweet sauce... RM6
A set of toasted bread with half boiled eggs... 
Can't really see the other half boiled egg... 
Been drooling for this.... 
And while I was sitting there, the orders came non-stop for this dessert... 
Sticky rice with sweet Kaya... 

As for yesterday's dinner, I just boiled porridge and ate with these 2 dishes...
Lightly pan fried cod fish... 
I bought this for RM38... 
Long time I did not take so it justifies the pricing... LOL... 
And I added greens to the leftover dish of pork ribs and arrowhead... 
Now I am thinking what to cook for tonight...

  1. Yes, good for you! I also give tips to those attendants at the petrol station, just ask them to keep the change usually. Pity them, having to stand for hours in the heat...plus I hear they are not paid very much. So sad.

    Oooooo...I would love that sticky rice with kaya!!!

  6. I'm drooling at your pan-fried cod fish....haiz, RM38 for such a small piece (is that half a piece?) :D Love it lightly fried like this or steamed...used to buy at a time when it was still affordable.

  7. So kind of you to give a red packet to the attendant, I am sure his service and attitude was good too, that is why you gave the thumbs up! All the breakfast look good, the ccf, the toast with half boiled egg and the glutinous rice with kaya (which I have not tried before). Wow cod fish, yums!

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
