Batik Cake From My Lovely Colleagues

I have real nice colleagues... we can get along very well in the office... though we differ in age, in culture, in race, nevertheless we share one common interest..... YES!!  WE LOVE TO EAT!  (who doesn't! hahhaaaa....)

One afternoon when I came back from lunch, I could smell something very nice coming out from the pantry..... lo and behold... I saw this!! 
wow.... they made this during lunch!
Presenting... Batik Cake...
I think it is called like that... hahahaa....
Ready to eat....
there it goes..... doesn't it look like Batik? 
rich with chocs and cocoa...
Ok, Big Thanks to our Chef....
He was the one who "triggered" this off....
Ever since he brought two different cakes in two days,
the girls couldn't resist not trying them out....
hmmm... I think I also must learn how to do this for my kids!!


  1. Omigosh so awesome. reminds me of my highschool day when we do pot luck for celebration and yes someone MUST bring kek batik :D

  3. sheoh yan have made this, i'm sure you also can.

  4. fuyooohhhh that looks yummy! i've tried this kinda cake few times and i love it but so susah wanna find at bakery shop..

  5. aiyo.. looks so sinful! My waist kembang just looking at the pics! :D

  6. Batik cake...does that mean it has both the chocolate and vanilla swirled in it? I have not heard the term before. We would call this marble cake if it is chocolate and vanilla. Looks good!

  7. Takes two hands to clap - you're just a friendly and nice lady so they cannot help but be the same in return. Nice cake! Nothing beats home or own-cooked...

  8. Ya, kek batik is an all time fav...make one with your daughter. Pretty easy.

    cyn: too much work makes us dull.. hahaha...

  11. The person who made this for you is a guy ah! Thumbs up for him. This is the simple cake and required only a few ingredients, I am sure you can do this.

  12. nice to have nice colleagues..:) i'm sure always got makan session.

  13. Yan: yes, he started this last week and since then we ladies are smitten.. hahaa..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
