The Giant Enormous Paper Tosai

It has been quite some time since we have indian food... since I started my oats breakfast (ahem) I seldom go out. But I can't be drinking oats each day so when my friends "ajak-ed" (called) me to go out for something different, I wouldn't want to resist.

This time we went to Kalai's cafe in old town... I ordered a mango lassy (mango yogurt) but the waiter, being a foreigner, gave me a milk yogurt instead... alamak! I am allergic to milk one but I forced myself to drink it... don't taste it, just gulp it down.. after all it is good for cleansing up our intestines/colon, right? :)

As usual I have my capati... but my friend has this ENORMOUS paper tosai.... lol...

we were amused by the huge and long tosai..
lol... then she started to eat.. and eat.. and eat..

after some minutes, she gave up....
burpppp... full liow...
eventually 2 of us helped her to finish it...
(next time no more ordering this giant tosai!)


  1. That is one huge tosai. Almost her size! haha

  2. This is the first time i saw such a big Tosai. But I think I can finish that. Hehehe...

  3. Wah! Really gigantic.. Never saw such a big and long tosai before.. One person cannot finish for sure no matter how paper thin it is..

  4. kathy: shared with 3 ppl then ok...

    willie: yes, i believe u!

    inspiredmum: ladies cannot i think.. men can.. haha...

    chris: yes, 3 feet.. :p

  5. Oh my goodness! That is sooooo BIG!! How's the taste by the way?

    I like weird shaped/sized food. There's one place in KK, I've never been there though, my friend went there and took a pic with a burger soo big. Twice her head!

  6. eh, if u allergic to milk, no matter how fast u gulp it down oso you'll get some kind of reaction... no?

    become must pay more since need to use two big pieces of paper to wrap that!! and then bringing it away is hilarious too. imagine bringing to your colleague and plonking it on her desk and say "THIS IS YOUR LUNCH!" hehehe

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
