Authentic CNY Meal In Jelapang

On the second day of CNY, we went to my maternal' side in Jelapang.... I told my kids that once-upon-a-time during my schooling days, I used to stay in my granny's house... In fact, I have stayed in a number of houses before when I was young, I think I am the only one in my family who loves to stay over in my relatives' house during the school hols....

Back to the topic, here we are at Jelapang New Village once again.
. ... once a year affair... LOL...  
Remember this cute house? 
 I think I posted it up during CNY 2012...
Nowadays these houses are very "authentic" already... 
With my cousins and sis.....
and soon, it was time for Dinner!!
Really love this kind of meal... 
Such authentic food...
Stewed Yam with three layers meat! (Far Yuk)
Mixed vegetables...
Jelapang Special Stir Fry Prawns with Sweet Sauce...
One of the best meals we have ever tasted..
Even the steamed chicken is "home reared!"
How authentic that can be, right?
Her smile says it all...  LOL...


  1. jelapang.. sounds so familiar lah, i think my friend stays there.. BTW, that prawns dish looks so delicious lor~~

  2. sk, u know..going to other houses to have a meal or two, is really appetizing one even though the dishes are simple..

  3. Yes, true. When having meal at other people's house, one can feel that the food is more tasty. Love the mixed vegetables & prawns but the three layers meat, give it a pass. Your youngest son is taller than his brother and you and your daughter looks like sisters, hehehe!!!!...

  4. that was indeed a cute house
    but anyways nevermind the house i was captivated with the foods

  5. Are one of these houses like the kind you grew up in, Claire? Or are they much older? Looks like you are all having such fun and great food!

  6. Yum!!! Nice food! Wahhhh!!! You and your girl look like sisters. Hehehehehe!!!

  8. irene: yes, my 2nd one is bigger size than the 1st.. one takes after me obviously! :)

    mecoy: food and more food, right?

    ginny: not exactly cos i was born and raised up in the town city.. so when school hols come, i like to spend them in the countryside.. hahaha...

    stp: from afar, maybe we do look alike... from near, no way! hahaa..

    wenn: yes, kau yuk is my favourite!

  9. Our house, in the middle of our street
    Our house, in the middle of our ... ♬

    Oh sweet & lovely smile from your little girl

  11. bananz: hey, what song is that.. belum pernah dengar la.. :)

    hayley: yes, we balik-ed kampung ma.. hahaha...

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
