Kolo Noodles And Steamed Pumpkin Cake

By the time I reached home from office, my stomach was like "beating the drum" inside me.. Very quickly, I did all the necessary house chores and walked doubly fast to my mom's house... On the way there, my mind was filled with homecooked food.. any food will do as long as they are ready on the table! LOL...

True enough, to my amazement and surprise, I saw these two dishes on the table, all ready to be eaten!  What lovely surprises... I really appreciate my mom and my sister who are always springing up with something nice for dinner... 
 My sister was in the "cooking-new-dishes" mode ...
And she swooshed up a new dish for us to try...
Steamed Pumpkin Pudding!
She put lots of shredded pumpkin, dried prawns and chinese sausage... 
She even prepared sambal belacan to go with these... 
What a great combination!  
And now thinking back, I wonder how many pieces I took!!
On second thoughts, I better not count...
Lest I feel guilty

Ok, the above is for starters... LOL... 
My mom also prepared something...called...
KOLO NOODLES!
"Half-dressed-up" noodles... 
My mom made some special sauce to go with the noodles... 
But after "dressing it up"... it looks too good to resist!
This is my type of meal... 
Anytime... Anywhere... 
It doesn't have to be decorated to the fullest...
What I really need is a nice simple meal....
And I am fully Satisfied!

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...
