My Birthday Gifts At Day

Thank you for your birthday and get well wishes at the same time!!  When I logged in to my FB this morning, I was so surprised to see so many joyous greetings, I felt so good eventhough I have been unwell for the past one week.  I love blogging... I love Facebook too... these two social media have brought me great joy because knowing you all is really wonderful... great too!!

Today I felt much better... in fact I have to be better.... cos my dear colleague cum friend cum buddy wanted to give a lunch treat!  So happy to see her after a week..... so much to catch up with each other...

We went to Kou Kei along the Mistress Street for our lunch..
she ordered clams... (lala)  our favourite.. 
watercress vegetables  (sai yong choy)
steamed fish (soon yue)  it was really nice!
I was so hungry... like been ages since I last ate rice!
for the two of us, these dishes were more than enough...

Then around 2.30pm when I reached my house, I was accosted by a pretty young lady who asked me whether my name is Claire... She was holding a bouquet in her arms.... I thought they were flowers from my ahemmmm... "admirers" hahahaa... but when she handed them to me, to my astonishment, they were all CHOCOLATES! 
my bouquet of Chocolates!!
Aren't they beautiful!!! 
to this Family, WK, K & J.
and lastly and not least..

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...
