Old Rose Among The Young Thorns In Kok Thai Restaurant

Andy's college mates came to Ipoh for a visit two days ago, they are having their semester break and it is sort of a "digressing" trip for them after their exams. I hope Andy has done a wonderful job taking them around Ipoh.... but what I heard from him are normally "food" places except for the Sunway Lagoon, most of the time, he takes them out for food and more food... hahahaa...

Well, I guess Ipoh has nothing much to offer except for the capital "F" ..... and I hope they will bring back good memories of IPOH to the northern region...

Tomorrow they will be leaving and this evening I took them out to our regular restaurant, Kok Thai....

one for the album before the food....

this is the first dish that arrived after 15 minutes...

I like to eat the thinly sliced pork.. it is sort of a cold dish..
with the sea fungus embedded below...

Andy asked why the dish has no taste...
until I told him that it has to go with this sauce...
onions, garlic, chillies soaked in sweet vinegar...

then followed by this dish.. a variety of nuts and vegetables..

WK with his precious "baby"...
Just look at the way he holds it.. style-l0... hahhaa...

sweet sour pork...
Yes, another dish of pork! gosh...

shrimp omelet

fried chicken with crackets...

and bean curd with black fungus plus petula..
"singkwa" is petular, right?

Well, hope you guys enjoyed the meal...
It is not too expensive, only RM131.00
with 13 bowls of rice plus drinks.. hahhaaa...
Nice to see young people eat..

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...
