Self Torture!

I am not feeling very well, I cough every now and then, a slight fever hovering by and my voice almost gone... I don't feel like doing anything by lying down and sleep... that is why I didn't blog hop much these two days, sorry ya!

But above all these, I am still yearning for something hot and nice.... when I went through my folder just now, I drooled and drooled over food such as these below...
I don't mind having a hot bowl of noodles now... 
fish noodles in hot salted vege soup...
or a bowl of hot laksa!  
gosh... why am I torturing myself??
my mum made me this hot soup instead... 

for Dessert, I yearn for a bowl of yam...
with thick santan (sinful dessert!)
I don't mind having a hot bowl of potato soup now too!!
or a plate of red cherries... 
followed by a sardine pastry!!
GOSH!!  I wish I am well now!!!
This reminds me of a chinese saying...
Eat while you can...
Forget about dieting.. forget about getting fat....
Eating Well means Prosperity!


  1. i am most attracted by the "mouse powder" in hot soup.. nice!! :D

  2. Life is funny,isn't it,we tend to crave more when we are sick,right? hey sister,do drink a lot of water,rest well,,,,, tomorrow shall be all right, I pray ,amen?

  3. sk: I want something hot hot at this moment! :)

    eugene: thanks my fren... I am drinking tubs and tubs of water.. my toilet going to overflow.. hahaha...

  4. Like this you still yelling for laksa, gosh!!! are daring. Guess for the time being, "kuai kuai" just have plain porridge only. Take k and will hold you in my prayers.

    kathy: thank you!

  7. u should rest well..don't eat too much when sick

  8. You can eat as much as you can when you get well later. So, now you should just 'yun' 'yun' 'yun'... (tahan)

  9. Oh, I know what you mean!!! I love to look at (and eat) delicious food. It always tastes good because I didn't have to do the cooking. lol. Hope you feel better soon, Claire.

  10. Do get well soon claire, so you can start enjoying all the good food again!

  11. I think at times when we are sick, our bodies will crave certain foods because we need the nutrients in them. I am SO sorry you are still sick, Claire!!! You asked about the shoes. No. they weren't special made, there are lots of styles on the web.

  12. those foods look really tasty. i hope that you'll get well soon :)

  13. Hope you're feeling better soon. What you need is a nice hot bowl of chicken soup. They say they have found it does help people not feeling well. Around here they have been having a lot of sinus infections.

  14. eat well, friend!

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...
