Our Road Side Meal At First Garden

"Where are we going for lunch?" This is the usual question my colleague will ask when we meet up at our office lobby each afternoon. Sometimes we pre-plan our schedule during the morning and at times we are "aimless" as to where to go for lunch.

Normally we do not need to say anything till we are out of our office gates and then let the roads lead us till we make a decision... something like.... Have Road Will Travel....

This afternoon the roads led us to First Garden... when we reached there, we saw there were a few hawker stalls... well... the rest of the story is here below...
A lone hawker stall... 
feeling curious, I went over to see what he has...
ended up buying these for our lunch...
3 pieces of vegetable dumplings (kau chi)
and a piece of raddish cake....
Another hawker stall selling Rojak (mixed fruits)
sprinkled with lots of nuts....
a bowl of beancurd dessert with coconut sugar, 
Rojak and Dumplings....
Hence, we ended up sitting by the roadside 
to take our "kind of funny" lunch...


  1. simple crispy dumplings.. looks yummy yummyy!!

  2. ooo dumpling n rojak selling together??
    how is the rojak taste?

  3. the raddish cake comes with lap cheong inside?? looks very nice leh, of course also the pan fried gao ji and the rojak, so generous to give so many peanuts..

  4. eunice: they tasted not bad actually..

    kathy: oh u like rojak?

    simpleperson: they are opposite each other.. the rojak there is not bad..

    sk: roadside stalls offer better options..cheaper too!

  5. Occasionally, I allow myself to do the same, gulping down all the food I found in the night market without being bothered too much about calories and cholesterol. It's fun eating this way.

  6. hehe, kind of funny lunch, but i think its "kind of nice" lunch too! :)

  7. I think I would tried the mixed fruits with nuts


  8. looks good to me!!!

  9. So how did it taste, would you go back? It all looks really good for vendor food, except for the nut covered stuff.

  10. Yumz!
    But I could imagine what my Mom would have said if she ever saw me eating these foods for lunch, "don't eat lap chap yea, have a proper meal!" Lolz

  11. Huh? I thought I commented already leh?

  12. stp: tak nampak pun?

    gratitude: yes, moms are always right, u know.. hahaha..

    isaac: yes, good to eat lap chap once awhile..

    pam: eat away!!

    ginny: vendors food are cheap and nice.. hahaha..

    wenn: nice food near your place!

    gigi: yes, they do..

    filip: great!

  13. I don't mind taking roadside food, most of them taste nice one, may be because of extra ingredient - dust.

  14. They all look yummy to me...I don't mind sitting at roadside long as they taste good.

  15. yan: u r very right!! :)

    mery: added ingredients.. hahaa..

  16. Dumpling looks delicious. How about the tao fu fa? Good?

  17. The tao fu fa and rojak looks delicious. I do sometimes took lunch from the hawker stall...

  18. That's a simple yet special lunch. Every day eating rice and noodle also boring. haha...

  19. wow yummy, sometimes the simplest things taste the best... never been there before thought, shd get the dierections there when i am ipoh next time

  20. i didnt know that the lady has gula melaka for her tau foo the dumpling nice?

    kristen: ok, u can ask me.. hahaha..

    kimura: not bad..

    alv: cos nowadays not many roadside stalls..

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...
