A Quiet Evening

Today is Friday.... after a simple dinner with my kids at home (yes, my son was yearning for homecooked food), we looked at each other.... patting our heavy stomachs, we asked one another what our next program was going to be....

Where to go.....Jaya Jusco? Parkson Grand? These are the only two mega malls in IPOH... cham moe....

Finally we settled for a night market walk in First Garden. I think it has been more than ten years since I last went... I really cannot remember.... anyway, we set out around 8.30pm...

Reaching there, we were shocked to see the big crowd, so jammed up.... gosh, I felt like going home.. I really don't like crowded places...

Anyway, after an hour or so, we were back in our own homes....

Tonight is very quiet.... so serene.... and my mind is so relaxed... this is the moment to rest...

  7. No photos? I like quiet places - that's why in big towns and cities, I would rather laze around in the hotel room enjoying the cool and the quiet. Mandy says I love hotel rooms... Hehehehehe!!!!

  15. hi claire, got to know you thru elin's mail. Yeah, tell me about it..the pasar malam in first garden. i live near there and i will avoid the roads surrounding it, it's just too many people can cars. one of the biggest pasar malam, they say and lots of stuff too but i hardly go there. Difficult to find parking space, walking would be quite a distance too.

  16. I too avoid crowded places especially crowded market places. It is always better to go to those malls and have your necessary items packed without any hassles.

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...
